Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Features More Candy Than Ever

Let’s talk about one of my favorite parts of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party – the candy!

Trick Or Treat?

In case you’ve never attended one, the party is an after-hours Halloween celebration that features a lot of must-see Halloween-themed entertainment, such as the “Boo To You Parade,” “Happy HalloWishes” fireworks, Disney characters in costumes, and much more. The party also features trick-or-treating for kids of all ages – yes, this means that adults are welcome to participate!

This year, we’re happy to share that the parties feature more trick-or-treat locations than ever before, with a total of 13 treat stops that over the next few weeks will hand out a total of 261 tons of candy. Guests who exit the park after the 8:30 p.m. performance of the “Boo to You” parade are in for an additional treat – but we’ll leave it up to you to find out just what it is.


  • Karen – I don’t see why you couldn’t. You’ll have your wristband and some kind of ticket media. There will be a point close to the end of the party where they won’t let anyone in anymore, so as long as there is still a reasonable amount of time left for the party you should be OK. I’d call guest relations to be certain. Have a fun time!

  • Rochelle – I’m a CM and have worked both the Mickey’s Not So Scary and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas parties in the past at the Magic Kingdom. I don’t remember any healthier options available at the MNSS (but I may have missed that information…), but we did have a location or two where guests could get apple slices and apple cider (instead of the hot chocolate and cookies) at MVMC party

  • What options are there for diabetic children and children with peanut/tree nut allergies?

  • A member of our party needs to leave the park during the Halloween party to avoid the fireworks but we will want to come back after to enjoy the rest of the party. Can you leave and come back in as long as you have a party ticket?

  • What healthier treat options does the party offer? Are they at every treat station?

  • It really is so wonderful to see Disney being generous with the candy for kids on Halloween.

  • I miss the red Mickey shaped Goofy and Co. lollipops from the party so much. Do they sell those in a bag at the candy shop?

  • Will party goers be allowed to trick or treat in Toontown like last year? If I leave after the parade can i come back in?

  • Does “leave after the 8:30 p.m. performance of the “Boo to You” parade” mean directly after or anytime after that? That’s only 1.5 hours after the party starts if it is right after that only 😉

  • If it’s like prior years, they’ll have a ginormous bin of candy near the exit where you can fill your bag to the rim. Speaks strongly in favor of avoiding the candy lines altogether (after all, you’re at DISNEYLAND) and just waiting until you leave to fill up!
