Halloween is coming early to Walt Disney World Resort – and is sticking around for a night beyond the traditional Oct. 31. On 24 evenings between Sept. 4 and Nov. 1, Magic Kingdom will be alive with friendly ghosts and goblins during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.
It’s an occasion when guests of all ages are encouraged to dress up in their own favorite Halloween costumes … and even if they choose not to masquerade, they still get to trick-or-treat around the Magic Kingdom theme park, collecting yummy candy. Special lighting, music and theming effects combine to transform areas of the park into happy haunted hollows.
Parties begin at 7 p.m. and continue till midnight, with dates slated for:
Sept. 4, 11, 15, 18, 22, 25, 29;
Oct. 1, 2, 6, 8, 9, 12, 13, 15, 18, 20, 22, 23, 25, 27, 29, 31
The popular event, which takes place following Magic Kingdom closing (requiring separate admission), features two scheduled entertainment extravaganzas exclusive to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party: Mickey’s “Boo-to-You” Halloween parade and the bewitching “Happy HalloWishes” fireworks spectacular.
The parade begins with a “spook-tacular” ride by the Headless Horseman and showcases Disney characters decked out for the occasion and the stars of the Haunted Mansion attraction. During the fireworks show, the Disney villains go trick-or-treating in the sky.
