Boo To You! Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Comes to the Magic Kingdom

Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party

Tonight kicked off one of my favorite times of year-Halloween at the Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort. Young to young at heart dress up in their Halloween best as it’s time to trick or treat and party the night away at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary-Halloween Party. From the time you step foot onto Main Street, you can feel the Halloween magic all around you.


This year, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party will feature new eerie entertainment as well as returning favorite experiences throughout Magic Kingdom Park.  The big news is “Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular,” the all-new show at Cinderella Castle, featuring the Disney villains. In the show, those mischievous Sanderson Sisters from Disney’s “Hocus Pocus” visit the mortal world during the Halloween season. The three sisters decide to use their magic to throw the best, evil Halloween party this side of the graveyard, calling upon Disney villains like Dr. Facilier, Oogie Boogie, Maleficent and more!


During Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, you can dress in costume, go trick-or-treating throughout the park and meet some of your favorite Disney characters, including all Seven Dwarfs appearing in one place in Fantasyland. Look for new greeting areas around Storybook Circus this year, featuring appearances by Jack and Sally from Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and others. You may even come across some Disney villains. Look for the Queen of Hearts near Mad Tea Party, Gaston outside Gaston’s Tavern (where else?!) and Lotso over in Tomorrowland.



Don’t forget about Mickey’s “Boo to You” Halloween Parade, running twice nightly, and “Happy HalloWishes,” one of the most impressive fireworks spectaculars ever to fill the skies above Cinderella Castle.


Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a special event, separate from regular Magic Kingdom Park admission. Tickets are still available for most event nights September 15 through November 1. Be sure to get yours early, so your Halloween can be more treat than trick!
