The most wonderfall time of the year is just around the corner, and this year you have yet another reason to join us during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom Park!

Fireworks Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party

Taking place select nights August 17–October 31, 2018, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary will add a few new twists and treats to your evening.

The Mad Tea Party will take you for a colorful ride as new lighting and effects give a new spin on the night. Depending on the color of your costume, you too could transform under the new dancing lights. How cool is that?

On Pirates of the Caribbean, new pirates invade the experience, interacting with sailing guests who will join the search for “Gunpowder Pete.” Arrrgh!

On Space Mountain, explorers will hurtle through deep space as a new soundtrack and special effects transform the adventure. Can Space Mountain seriously get any better? #favorite

Also new this year, Storybook Circus welcomes the Storybook Circus Disney Junior Jam, a dance party featuring some of your favorite Disney Junior Characters, including Doc McStuffins!

Dancing Ghosts at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party

That’s a ton of cool stuff! As always, keep your eyes open for dancing ghosts, the Headless Horseman, plus Mickey, Peter Pan and many of your favorite characters in the themed parade. Then turn your eyes to an eerie-lit castle to see the skies above come alive with a magical fireworks extravaganza and a spectacle that definitely goes bump in the night. Plus, the night comes alive with the return of the spellbinding “Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular” castle show, where the Sanderson Sisters take “stage fright” to another level. And, as you already know, there are plenty of sweets for all trick-or-treaters, even allergy-friendly options!

Which new experience are you most excited about? I’d say all of them! Oh, and stay tuned because we can’t wait to share more with you!
