UPDATE 6/22: Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party has been cancelled this year. For more details, see our Walt Disney World Changes article.
Just announced this morning, the super popular Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party will be returning on select nights at Magic Kingdom this year beginning August 13th and running through November 1st. This annual separately ticketed event is one of the most popular Disney World offerings year after year, and many guests begin planning their trips around this party very early in the year.
It may surprise a lot of Disney guests to see that Halloween parties begin as early as August at Walt Disney World, but since this event draws such a huge crowd there has been a need to extend the dates each year. Since Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and Disney World’s Christmas celebrations generally begin the second week of November, dates for the Halloween party are typically added to August and September in order to offer more party nights.
Returning this year is the “Disney’s Not So Spooky Spectacular” fireworks show hosted by Jack Skeleton, which debuted in 2019 replacing the long-running HalloWishes. “Mickey’s Boo-to-You Halloween Parade” will also be returning, as will the “Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular” show featuring the Sanderson Sisters and a host of other Disney villains.
Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party will also include Halloween themed and rare character meet-and-greet opportunities, as well as specially themed foods, drinks, and merchandise. Halloween ride overlays will also be added to Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor, Pirates of the Caribbean, Space Mountain and Mad Tea Party, giving party guests the opportunity to experience these rides with a unique Mickey’s Not-So-Scary flair.
For 2020, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party takes place on the following select nights from 7:00PM – midnight:
- August 13, 18, 21, 25, 28
- September 1, 4, 7, 11, 13, 15, 18, 20, 22, 25, 27, 29
- October 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 9, 12, 13, 15, 16, 18, 20, 22, 23, 25, 27, 29, 31
- November 1
If you are planning on attending Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, it’s good to note that this is the one of the only times during the year that Disney World actually allows anyone over the age of thirteen to dress in costume. You can find Disney’s official costume guidelines on their website to know exactly how to plan your outfit for this event. There will also be trick-or-treat locations all throughout the park giving out tons of free candy, so don’t forget to stop by these treat stations while you’re there!
Currently, all Halloween party tickets are date-based just as regular day tickets are, so the price of the ticket depends on the day you choose. The lowest-priced tickets for 2020 dates cost $85 per person (plus tax) and the highest price (Halloween night – October 31st) cost $149 per person (plus tax). If you are an Annual Passholders or DVC Member, though, you may be able to get tickets for this event at a lower price.
