If you are visiting Walt Disney World sometime between August 25th, 2017 and December 22nd, 2017, you may want to consider adding holiday party tickets to your vacation. Both Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas party are festive events in Magic Kingdom which offer special character meets, parades, shows, fireworks, delicious treats and more.
Having been to both parties for numerous years, our family now considers these festive events a tradition. The Halloween party offers unlimited, delicious candy and the Christmas party has now added new cookie & drink flavors as options. Our favorites in 2017 were the candy cane cookies. So go ahead, treat yourself and buy tickets to these fabulous parties.

Fall is in the air at Walt Disney World and Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is in full swing. This is my personal favorite holiday event that Disney offers. The atmosphere is ominously spooky while still be pleasantly fun without the extensive scare factor of other theme park Halloween events in the area. Costumes optional, this party is great fun for people of all ages.
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party occurs in the magic Kingdom on select nights and is a separately ticketed event; this means that you cannot attend the party with your normal park entry ticket. You must purchase a Halloween Party ticket to attend. If you are interested in attending, be sure to buy early. The tickets for Halloween night are already sold out. CLICK HERE for a full list of event dates. The party officially begins and the park closes to the general public at 7:00pm. You can get into the park with your party ticket beginning at 4:00pm. It’s always a good idea to arrive early and have a plan in place.
Be sure and do you research before you attend the party and decide what events are important to you. There is no way to see and do everything at one single party (only 5 hours of fun).
This year our family was more focused on the candy & the specialty food rather than on meeting the characters and riding the attractions.
Events for 2016 are:
– Mickey’s “Boo To You” Parade: 8:30pm & 11:15pm
– Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular show: 8:00pm, 9:15pm, 10:40pm, 12:00am
– Celebrate the Magic Fireworks: 10:00pm
– Happy Hallowishes Frieworks: 10:15pm
– Special Disney Character Appearances: which can include the 7 dwarfs, Jack Skellington and Sally, Captain Hook & Smee, Captain Jack Sparrow, Halloween Mickey & Minnie, Buzz Lightyear and many more.
Spoiler Alert: CLICK HERE if you want to watch a full length video of the ‘Boo to You’ parade that we watched from the balcony of the train station.
– Creepy Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich – Plaza Ice Cream Parlor
– Spider Cupcake & Worms & Dirt – Main Street Bakery
– Candy Corn Surprise, soft-serve ice cream – Storybook Treats $4.19 +tax
– Pumpkin Spiced Cupcake – Gaston’s Tavern $5.19 +tax
We personally tried the Pumpkin Spiced Cupcake as well as the Candy Corn Surprise soft serve ice cream. Both were delicious fall desserts; the topping on the cupcake was very sweet icing and I bet you can’t guess what the “surprise” is at the bottom of the candy corn ice cream. Lines were much longer at Storybook Treats for the ice cream than for the cupcake in Gaston’s Tavern. In Fact, Gaston’s Tavern was rather empty & peaceful. This is a good place if you need somewhere to sit out of the crowds for a spell.

– Adventureland: Jungle Cruise, Enchanted Tiki Room, Pirates of the Caribbean
– Frontierland: Dock to Tom Sawyer Island, Splash Mountain

– Tomorrowland: Stitch’s Great Escape, Carousel of Progress, Space Mountain, An=untie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies
This year the treat bags were handed out at the treat stations rather than at the entrance to the park. Some of the treat stations were out of courtesy bags at some times. If you are serious about trick-or-treating at the party, I recommend bringing your own, larger bag for candy collecting as the complimentary bags are a bit on the small side.
There are some new candy sponsors for the party this year; I will admit that the candy I miss most from the last few years, is the Ocean Spray Crasiens. The new gummy Lifesavers were very popular with my kids as well as the Skittles and Dove chocolate bars. There is no limit on the number of times that you can visit a particular treat station so if you find a favorite candy, be sure to stop in more than once.
If you have food allergies in your family, ask for the special allergy friendly bag & you can collect tokens that you can later exchange for allergy friendly candy.
My one mistake from this party is eating a meal during the party at Pecos Bills. This took time away from participating in party events with my family. Life this year is a little different for us since we now live in Florida. The traffic getting to the park kept us from arriving at our planned time. My advice is to be sure & eat a meal prior to the beginning of the party at 7:00pm. If you do decide to eat a meal during the party, Pecos Bills does have great patio seating where you can eat while you watch the parade go by if you time your meal right.
Don’t forget to get your free, exclusive Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom Card. You can get them at the firehouse where you sign up for the game. There are usually cast members standing outside & passing out the cards as they mark your MagicBand that you have received one.
One Major Must Do for me at every party is to get at least one, usually multiple, photos by Disney Photopass photographers. These pictures from the party are so neat. If you don’t feel like waiting in line for pictures during the party, wait until the party is over and get in line at the beginning of Main Street. That particular location was my favorite photo location & will still be open even after the party ends. There is a special Magic Shot, that you won’t want to miss, in front of the Train Station as you exit / enter the Magic Kingdom. I won’t ruin the “Magic” You will just have to get the photo to find out who is standing next to you in it.
If you are going to be visiting Walt Disney World in the fall, be sure not to miss Mickey’s Not so Scary Halloween Party.

For any true Disney goer, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is not to be missed. It’s all about the rides, unique food, entertainment & especially the candy. This party is a trick-or-treater’s dream come true. In 2015 my kiddos left with 17 pounds of serious candy. The good stuff, not just the cheap hard candy. For ride junkies, enjoy shorter lines & try the coasters like Big Thunder Mountain Railroad & 7 Dwarfs Mine Train in the dark for a completely different experience. If the rides are something that you do in between the food, don’t forget to try the pumpkin spiced waffle at Sleepy Hallow Refreshments, this is just one of the mouth watering goodies that you can only get during the Halloween party.
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is run on select nights, in the Magic Kingdom, from September through October and is a separately ticketed event meaning that you will need to purchase a ticket to get in. You may get into the Magic Kingdom with your Halloween Party ticket beginning at 4:00; the party officially begins at 7:00pm and usually lasts until 11:00pm or midnight depending on the day.
