Ghouls and ghosts gather ‘round: it’s the most terrifying time of year! Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party has officially kicked off, bringing cheery tricks and plenty of tasty treats to Magic Kingdom Park until Nov. 1. The celebration has something for everyone — and we’ve got the perfect itinerary for you based on your party priorities.     

If you love a good snack …

Halloween is all about the candy, and Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party has oodles of options to get your fill. If you enjoy trick-or-treating, you’ll want to hit some of our treat trails — we have over a dozen! Gather your goodies in order or hop from stop to stop throughout the night. For those with food allergies, be sure to inquire about our special allergy-friendly tokens to redeem for treats. 

If specialty snacks are more up your alley, we’ve got 30 devilishly delicious delights available for purchase. Check out our Foodie Guide to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party for all the details, from Zombie Fingers to a Tombstone Tart. You may also want to reserve your spot at Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular Dessert Party for all-you-care-to-enjoy sweet treats and specialty drinks (plus private viewing for the nighttime spectacular). 

If you’re all about the rides …

Throughout your evening, you’ll want to carve out time to experience popular attractions. Since Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a specially ticketed event, you might notice lower wait times than normal operating hours! Venture if you dare into select attractions with spellbinding surprises: Space Mountain, Mad Tea Party and Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor all feature unique Halloween twists. Plus, what eerie evening is complete without a visit to the Haunted Mansion? Keep your eyes peeled throughout the queue: several happy haunts have received your sympathetic vibrations and begun to materialize.  

You’ll also have the opportunity to join the virtual queue in order to enter the Grid and ride TRON Lightcycle / Run presented by Enterprise! Guests attending the party can request to join the virtual queue at 6:00PM using the My Disney Experience app.*

If characters and entertainment are your favorite …

Look alive! Special characters are popping up all around Magic Kingdom to wish you a happy Halloween. Meet Jack Skellington and Sally or Mickey Mouse at Town Square Theater on Main Street, U.S.A., the Seven Dwarfs at Pete’s Silly Sideshow, and plenty of princesses throughout Fantasyland. But be wary: several villains have joined the fun, too! Check your event map for all the details.

You’ll hear uncanny entertainment in certain areas of the park as well. Our famous Cadaver Dans Barbershop Quartet has returned to Frontierland (complete with their typical “deadpan” humor), and an all-new pirate band has appeared in Adventureland!

Plan to catch at least one of our can’t-miss entertainment offerings. The toe-tapping “Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade” winds through the park at 9:15 p.m. and 11:15 p.m., and the wickedly wild “Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular” features Halloween fireworks at 10:15 p.m. Lastly, watch the Sanderson Sisters and an assortment of Disney villains wreak havoc at the “Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular.” Your event map will list updated showtimes. 

If you’re obsessed with planning your costume …

Guests of all ages are welcome to join the fun and dress up for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party! Craft creative costumes based on your favorite characters, attractions and more. Of course, you’ll want to make sure your spirited attire aligns with our costume guidelines.
