UPDATE: The sweepstakes entry window has closed. Please stay tuned.

There’s a new show coming to this year’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at the Walt Disney World Resort and we’re celebrating with a special Disney Parks Blog experience to kick off the very first night of the event. On Tuesday, September 15, 2015, we’re hosting another Halloween costume party for 150 winners of the “Not-So-Scary” Blog Party at Magic Kingdom Park sweepstakes.


The “Not-So-Scary” Blog Party at Magic Kingdom Park begins at 5:15 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, September 15 but we’re asking winners to begin arriving at 4 p.m. EDT. We’ll kick off the night with some Halloween-themed treats before experiencing the first-ever “Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular” show on the Castle Forecourt Stage.

In “Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular,” the mischievous Sanderson Sisters from Disney’s “Hocus Pocus” movie return to the mortal world for one night during the Halloween season. With only a few hours to run amuck, the three sisters decide to use their magic to throw the best, evil Halloween party this side of the graveyard!

Winners are encouraged to wear costumes (no masks) to the event, subject to the costume guidelines below.

  • I didn’t get an invite, but I went to the Coolest Summer giveaway, and it was a lot of fun! Have fabulous time, for those who did win!!

  • If anyone has a spare spot…ill by the ice cream!

  • Congrats, to all those winners!! I tried and didn’t get picked:( A huge bummer since our week long vacay at WDW starts on SEPT 16th. Really thought this would kick that off early. Haven’t been able to afford a vacay in 10 yrs. It will still be magical even though we can’t afford to do the Halloween Party. Hopefully, the blog will post some awesome pics for those of us who were not selected. Waving my wand filled with pixie dust over those of us who lost so next time we will win! ºoº

  • Did everyone get their emails or are they doing it in phases?

  • Congratulations to all the Hallowinners!!

  • Woo Hoo! Got the confirmation email at 5:57 eastern time. We are going. Hope some of you get your emails soon 🙂 Good Luck Everybody!

  • WOW! Right after my Jedi post, an email arrives saying I won! Now I have to get a costume together!

  • From researching last year’s meet-up, it appears the entry period was also on 9/9 from 12-3 PM, and the comments suggest that confirmation emails went out 9/10 around 3:30 PM. So, based on last year, confirmations should be going out any time; though, at this point, it might seem logical they won’t go out today.

  • It takes them a little time to get it together, patience young Padawan!
