What Adults Do at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party When the Kids Ditch Them

2014 Mickeys Not So Scary Halloween Party in the Magic Kingdom

Mickey’s Not-so-Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom is a family tradition. I don’t think we’ve missed a party in over 10 years. Of course ten years ago I had a kindergartner and now I’ve got a 15-year-old. Gone are the days of me holding her hand as she trick-or-treated through the candy stations. Now she brings a friend along. We enter the park, get banded and then we see the kids again at midnight for a ride home.

What are a couple of parents to do when they get ditched by the kids?

First things first. Head straight back to “Be Our Guest Restaurant” for a two-hour dinner. Don’t have a reservation? See this post – How to Get a Dinner Reservation at Disney’s Be Our Guest Restaurant Without Booking 6 Months in Advance. These are the faces of adults who just had a spectacular dinner inside the Magic Kingdom with beer and wine without the kids.

At this point in the evening you will be the last guests out of the restaurant and can take fun photos like this one without other guests getting in your shot.

By this time it will be around 9pm. The first “Boo to You Parade” will have already run it’s course and some guests with very small children may have left the park already. You’ll be feeling pretty good at this point and will be tempted to immediately head over to Space Mountain. This is not a good idea after beer, wine, braised pork and cream puffs. Talk yourself back down. Take a nighttime ride on Seven Dwarfs Mine Train instead. It’s right there.

This will give you just enough time to briefly meet your teenagers at The Lunching Pad in Tomorrowland and buy them a Frozen Coke. You will tell them they need to watch the Hallowishes firework spectacular with you and the guilt from your Frozen Coke purchase will compel them to comply. They will be embarrassed half way through Hallowishes when you begin dancing and singing. “BEWARE! BEWARE! Pink elephants on parade. Here they come. Hippity Hoppity. They’re here. They’re there. Pink elephants everywhere. Pink elephants on parade!”

This will be the last you see of them til midnight.

The rest of your hours will be spent listening to Lady Carlotta heckle guests and sing Elvis songs in front of the Haunted Mansion…

…and blazing through all of your favorite attractions like Pirates of the Caribbean, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain, Space Mountain and Peter Pan. If you don’t want to see the second installment of the “Boo to You Parade”, no pressure.

Oh, and I almost forgot. Hit up every “Trick-or-Treat” Location for all the candy your arms can carry.

By midnight the kids will be searching for a ride home, or to McDonald’s.

Special Halloween Dessert Being Served at Disney’s Be Our Guest Restaurant in the Magic Kingdom

On Friday my husband and I had the pleasure of dining at Be Our Guest Restaurant during Mickey’s Not-so-Scary Halloween Party. We didn’t even have a dinner reservation. Details on how we got in are in this post: How to Get a Dinner Reservation at Disney’s Be Our Guest Restaurant Without Booking 6 Months in Advance

Dark Chocolate Cream Puff with Blood Orange Filling for Halloween at Disney's Be Our Guest Restaurant in the Magic Kingdom

Today I wanted to bring you photos of a special dessert I had after dinner. I was told by my server that this was only being served on Mickey’s Not-so-Scary Halloween Party nights, but I assume that the closer we get to Halloween, the more this dessert may become available.

This was a delicious Dark Chocolate Blood Orange Cream Puff. It was topped with a bit of plain cream, Halloween sprinkles and a dark chocolate spider web.

As you can see, the filling really was blood orange in color and tasted spot on like that unmistakable Florida citrus fruit. This dessert, like most of the cream puffs served at Be Our Guest Restaurant, was very light and a perfect ending to our meal. I paired it with a delicious Pinot Noir.
