Happy Halloween Walt Disney world mickey ghost bagTip: Bring your own sturdy Halloween Trick-or-Treat bag to the party. It can hold a ton more candy than the small complementary plastic bags that are given out.

That’s a full 8 hours to enjoy the park. Note that if you do enter the park at 4, the party festivities, including candy stations, shows and dance parties will not begin until 7pm.

Tip: The treat trail that runs between Tomorrowland and Fantasyland has had its direction switched. You have to enter in Tomorrowland and exit in Fantasyland. The Cast Members were being VERY strict about this and would not let us pass the other way. =(

Tip: Pick up your card on Main Street or in Liberty Square at 7pm when the party starts. I’ve heard that they sometimes run out of them by the end of the night. Also, they stop distributing them an hour before park close.

Dates for the 2013 Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party in the Magic Kingdom

2013 mickeys-not-so-scary-halloween-partyHalloween’s happiest haunts will reappear for 23 “spook-tacular” nights of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom.

From September 10th through November 1st, the after-hours special ticket event will immerse guests in the Halloween spirit. The bewitching “Happy HalloWishes” fireworks spectacular will illuminate the sky in bursts of orange and green fireworks.  In “Mickey’s Boo-to-You Halloween Parade” the Headless Horseman parades a gang of ghostly characters down Main Street, U.S.A. for a haunted, but happy, Halloween season.

New features this year include the debut of Jack Skellington and Sally (from Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas”), along with “Monsters, Inc.” scarers Mike and Sulley hosting their own Monstrous Scream-O-Ween Ball.

The night of ever so slightly frightful fun begins at 7 p.m. and runs until midnight, with guests encouraged to don their favorite Halloween costumes and partake in trick-or-treating around the Magic Kingdom theme park.

Party dates in 2013 are:

  • Sept. 10, 13, 17, 20, 24, 27, and 29

What Keeps Me Coming Back to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Year After Year

Magic Kingdom Mickeys not so scary halloween party entrance

A Walt Disney World Annual Pass isn’t exactly what I’d call cheap. I paid $410.03 for my annual pass and that was the Florida Resident Renewal Rate.  The Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP) at the Magic Kingdom is a separately ticketed event that costs $50 bucks and some change.  Last year I attended 3 MNSSHPs! People ask me if I’m nuts and why would I pay the extra $50 some odd dollars to go to a park that I can get into for free with my annual pass. Usually folks who ask me that question are folks who have never experienced the magic that ‘IS’ Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.

Here are some of the personal highlights for me…

Being welcomed to the party over the magic Kingdom PA System by my “Ghost Host”

The Haunted Mansion gravedigger portion of the “Boo to You” Halloween parade probably tops the list…

Of course the headless horseman riding down Main Street USA to open up the parade is another highlight you can only experience at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

Hallowishes Perimeter fireworks! What the heck are perimeter fireworks? Well they are like Wishes Fireworks but on roids! Instead of just having the fireworks launched at and behind Cinderella Castle, you also have 180 degree fireworks going off all around you! Not to mention an epic Hallowishes soundtrack to accompany them!

Enough candy to rot all of Bruce’s teeth out of his sharkey little head! Or to keep your wee ones turbo charged on a sugar high so they can partake until midnight when the party ends and then crash and burn back at your hotel room.

When else can you look forward to standing in the queue line for Splash Mountain?

Speaking of queue lines…we flew thru ALL of them! Seriously..ALL OF THEM! There was zero wait for any of the attractions! Splash, Space, Big Thunder, Pirates, even Peter Pan had no wait! Most of the ride vehicles looked like this when we went to board….and that’s not JUST because this is ‘its a small world” boat. Legit all the rides were a walk on. I swear!
