Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party has been a fan favorite for many years. Having attended several extra hour “party” events myself, I can honestly say, you gotta see this!

For starters, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is an after hours, separate ticket event. Guests can arrive at the Magic Kingdom with their MNSSHP tickets as early as 4 p.m., but the party doesn’t officially start until 7 p.m.

For 2013, ticket prices ranged from:

$59 to $62 for adults
$54 to $57 for children

Halloween night tickets are priced slightly higher and are sold out for 2013.

The park maps take a different spin for Mickey’s Not So Scary Party!

If you are attending this event, don’t forget to grab a map! This program guide tells you all the “hot spots” for the evening…dance parties, trick or treat locations, fireworks times, parade times, etc.

Thanks to WDW Info for use of these maps.

Many of these events sell out (please note, the Magic Kingdom is not full to capacity with a sell-out party, on purpose)…

Many guests choose to dress in costume for this event. This was a surprise trip for my husband, so costumes weren’t an option…but my Mickey/Donald shirt sure is cute, huh? :0)
(Please note, this is the only event that guests are allowed to wear outside costumes into the parks…unless you are running a runDisney race, of course!)

After scanning park tickets, guests are given a party wristband to wear on their wrists and receive a special bag for trick-or-treat candy.

Trick or treat spots are located throughout the entire park and can be found on the guidemap…see, it’s important to have!

In order to make trick-or-treat spots more visible, these Mickey pumpkin lights are located outside each entrance.

Guests will also find character dance parties throughout the park – times and locations listed on the guidemap.

While waiting in line for the Haunted Mansion, you’ll find Madame Carlotta. She likes to entertain guests with jokes and punch lines.

She’s pretty funny….not to be missed!

Another must-do is Hallowishes, the evening fireworks spectacular!

Hallowishes takes on a completely different look and feel from Wishes…..different soundtrack, different light show, it’s awesome and definitely a must-do!

Possibly my favorite part of the party is the Boo to You Halloween Parade!

The headless horseman rides through prior to the parade and he is way cool to see!

Also, some characters are dressed in costume which I love!

Even the bakery treats take on a special attire for the party!

Photo Pass takes on a bit of a different spin as well, with special character ops all around the park! (Please note, these photos are from 2009, but are still available at this time.)

Gotta love my silly family!

Character ops are ALL over the park – check your guidemap for locations and times.

If you’re a fan of the Haunted Mansion, you’ll love these….

Aaah! It’s a ghost!

Hitchhiking ghosts were out to socialize.

This is perhaps one of the most coveted Halloween Party photo ops in the park and always has a long line. I didn’t catch the location for 2013, but any photo pass photographer should be able to help you locate it.

After a long evening, we were worn out and decided to call it a night!

If you’re ever in Florida in the Fall and are on the fence about Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, think no more! This is definitely a must-do for all! I love everything about this party and came home with way too much candy! Have fun…BOO to YOU! :0)

Have you ever attended an after-hours party event? What were your thoughts?


  1. LOVE MNSSHP!!! We've been twice, I think I love Hallowishes more than regular Wishes! Boo-to-you is the best parade, imo. I cannot get enough of the gravediggers and the dancers.

    1. Love the gravediggers! Favorite part of the parade!! :0) I agree, we love it too!

  2. Halloween is my favorite holiday! But I've never been to Mickey's party! I MUST go!!!! Looks so fun!!!

  3. I went to this last year and Brandon and I had the best time. We trick - or - treated like little kids, enjoyed the ambience and had fun with the characters. Highly recommend this!!

    1. Agreed!! We did the same, and we came home with SO much candy! Loved it!

  4. We love this event, it's our favorite! Hallowishes is the best fireworks show ever!

  5. Great recap Karen. That event looks like tons of fun. We attended MVMCP last year and loved it. Because we are doing both the 5K and half at Wine and Dine we did not buy tickets....I hope I do not regret it! The after parties seem to be really popular!

    1. We love MVMCP, too! Such a cute event. It looks as if the Halloween Party ends on the 1st, so you might not have to worry about missing it after all! Hope you guys have a blast at W&D! Can't wait to run it again next year!

  6. We went to MNSSHP last year and it was so much fun. The Boo To You parade was my favorite parade ever!

  7. I attended in 2006 with Morgan Rooks. I was Tinkerbell and she was the White Rabbit (they go together, of course ;-) ) It was a lot of fun, my favorite part was the Headless Horseman coming down for the parade....and the Boo to You song will still get stuck in my head at random times!

    1. So cute and so much fun!! I agree, I've had the Boo to You song in my head the last two days!

  8. Ahhh what fun! What a lovely review!!!
    I definitely want to attend someday!

  9. I didn't see the pumpkin carriage- this year or last! Bummer. and now I wish we would've gone back by Haunted Mansion to catch Madame Carlotta.

    This is my favorite time at Disney!
