Halloween will officially return to Magic Kingdom Park tonight with the first thrilling, chilling (and candy filling!) Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

This year, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Parties will be held on 32 nights throughout the fall season and will feature all kinds of fun frights. Many guests favorites are returning, including the Mickey’s “Boo-to-You” Halloween Parade, the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular, and Happy HalloWishes Fireworks Spectacular. Plus, partygoers of all ages can dress in costume (guidelines here), trick-or-treat throughout the park and experience dozens of attractions.

Don’t forget, the parties also offer guests opportunities to grab event-exclusive merchandise and a special Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom card.

  • When will the Not So Scary Halloween 2018 dates be released. Trying to plan a September 2018 trip and flights are almost out. So would like to book

  • This will be our first MNSSHP. But I’m confused as I’ve seen pictures of adults dressing up for the party but in the rules and guidelines it says costumes may not be worn by guests 14 and older? Can someone clarify?

  • As an annual passholder, do you get special discounts on special event tickets? And if so how much is that discount?

  • Hello again Disney Parks Blog I would just like ask if there will be anymore Disney Villains Available for Meets and Greets and featured at the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular or if it will be the same 1’s from Last which is alright with me no big deal?

  • Hello there again Disney Parks Blog I would just like to ask anymore Disney Villains along with Cruella De Vil, Gaston, Jafar, will be featured at this year’s Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party along with those featured at the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular for meet and greets including The Sanderson Sisters like Captain Hook, Oogie Boogie, Hades, Maleficent, Snow White’s Stepmother Queen, Mother Grothel, Mr. Big Bad Wolf or more including Dr. Facilier / The Shadowman?
