2022 Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Review
It might only be August, but Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party has returned to Magic Kingdom! This party is a separately ticketed event that happens on select nights in Magic Kingdom from now through Halloween night. It takes place after the park closes to regular guests. Guests attending the party can get into Magic Kingdom 3 hours before it starts!
Party guests are given a wristband so they are easily identified while in the park. Crowd levels are pretty regular or even a little bit on the higher side when party guests can enter early. Then once the party officially starts and the regular guests leave, the crowd level dies down.
Once you are inside the park, you’ll want to grab a party map. The map will show you which attractions are open, entertainment info, treat spots, and more.
Guests attending the party can Trick or Treat throughout Magic Kingdom! Cast Members hand out a cute bag for your treats along with a full-size bag of M&M’s. There are several different treat trails throughout the park where Cast Members hand out candy. You can also get allergy-friendly options!
The Emporium is the spot to find exclusive Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party merchandise! Guests can purchase a special spirit jersey, T-Shirts, candy bowl, an ornament, and more!
Along with the regular Halloween decorations, we found some cute bronze statues of characters dressed for Halloween! We saw Jester Goofy, Princess Minnie, Musketeer Donald, and Musketeer Pluto.
There are some really fun photo ops at the party! Some cool 3-D ones we found include The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and Monsters, Inc.
There were some tasty Halloween treats out! From caramel apples to cupcakes to ice cream, there was something to satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth!
Special characters can be found all over Magic Kingdom during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party! Classics like Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy are dressed in their Halloween costumes. Disney Junior characters were seen near Pete’s Silly Sideshow. Villains were spotted roaming around the park. And characters we don’t usually see like George Sanderson from Monsters, Inc., we out interacting with guests!
There are multiple entertainment offerings during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. Mickey’s Boo to You Halloween Parade was scheduled for two performances last night. The first was canceled due to rain but the second was able to perform. Hocus Pocus Villains Spelltacular is a stage show in front of Cinderella Castle. It also takes place twice per night.
Guests can also experience Disney’s Not So Spooky Spectacular fireworks! Jack Skellington is the host of the fireworks show. Not only are there amazing fireworks but different projections on Cinderella Castle as well.
The Cadaver Dan Barbershop Quartet is also back for the party! The Dapper Dans have transformed into the Cadaver Dans and sing up some spooktacular tunes in Frontierland.
If you like to get your groove on, you’ll want to check out the dance parties during the party! The Monstrous Scream-O-Ween Dance Ball with Mike and Sulley takes place in Tomorrowland. In Storybook Circus, the Disney Junior Jam is happening with Disney Junior characters. And over at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe you can “do it like the zombies do” at the ZOM-BEATZ BASH Dance Party.
