Fall is by far my favorite season and while it may be July, Halloween is already on the brain here. This year the week before Halloween we are going to be at Walt Disney World for the first time during a holiday. That means we all will be experiencing Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party together for the first time. If you’re a MNSSHP newbie like I am, then you probably found your way here because you want to know all the things. I took the time to compile an all inclusive guide for us, so that we know all there is not know about joining one of Disney World’s most exciting ticketed events.
What is Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party?
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is a ticketed event that takes place during the fall at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. This means that a separate ticket is required to attend this special event during select nights. Ticket prices start at $79 and can increase based on date for ages 3 & up. Because it is “not-so-scary” the event is appropriate for families and children of all ages. Trick or treating, fireworks, parades and special events are all a part of this epic fall celebration. The 2019 dates for the event are:
August – 16, 20, 23, 27 and 30
September – 2, 6, 8, 10, 13, 15, 17, 20, 22, 24, 27 and 29
October – 1, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 11, 14, 15, 17, 18, 20, 21, 24, 25, 27, 29 and 31
To purchase tickets for the event, you can visit Disney’s website here or call the Disney Reservation Center at (407) 827-7350.
What’s New in 2019 at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party?
This year debuts the incredible new “Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular” show. Jack Skellington from Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas” serves as the host of this all-new nighttime extravaganza, with state-of-the-art projection effects, lasers, lighting and dazzling fireworks filling the sky above Magic Kingdom Park. Jack has come to tell a not-so-scary story about how anything can happen on Halloween night.
Also, several attractions will receive all new enhancements for the halloween fun. When you follow the treat trail into the Monster World at Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor, they’ll interact in all-new ways with the comic cast of monsters, as they learn about the curious Human World holiday we call Halloween. Embarking upon the high seas with the Pirates of the Caribbean, you’ll discover a crew of live pirates on your journey, engaged in a whole new adventure in search of treasure. Lastly, Nancy Clancy from Disney Junior series “Fancy Nancy” will be joining her friends at the Storybook Circus Disney Junior Jam.
What’s Returning in 2019?
The amazing “Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular,” the ride of the Headless Horseman, “Mickey’s Boo to You Halloween Parade,” Monstrous Scream-O-Ween Ball will all be returning to Magic Kingdown during the halloween celebration. Space Mountain will go completely dark again, and The Mad Tea Party in Fantasyland will spin you further and further into the halloween madness.
Can you wear costumes?
It would not be Halloween without costumes! Trick or treating is also a part of the festivities as well as a “costume promenade”. Because it is Disney, and a family event there are some costume guidelines. Some of these include:
- No masks that fully cover the face.
- Any “wings” must be transparent.
- Costumes must be family friendly.
To review the full list of costume guidelines, check out Disney Parks Blog.
I think I am more excited now more than ever (HA!) to head to Disney this fall. Have you ever attended one of Disney’s ticketed events? What is your favorite part of Halloween?
