Every year, Walt Disney World hosts Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party on select nights in September and October. Halloween is now only three days away, but there’s still a chance for those in Orlando to have some fun at Magic Kingdom.
Hopefully, those planning on going already have their tickets. The only night not sold out is tonight, October 28. You can click here to buy a ticket. Children under 3 years old can get in for free, but children between 3 and 9 need a $90 ticket. Tickets for those 10 or older are $95. It’s important to note that regular admission to Magic Kingdom does not include the event. You must get a special ticket to attend.
Disney is also hosting parties on Sunday, October 30 and Halloween itself, Monday, October 31. Those parties are both sold out.
Disney had planned parties for October 6 and 7, but those was cancelled due to Hurricane Matthew. As The Orlando Sentinel reported, if you had tickets to those events, they could be exchanged for a full refund, or tickets to Micky’s Very Merry Christmas Party (which runs on nights between November 7 and December 22), or for a one-day Magic Your Way park-hopper ticket.
Here’s What Happens at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Parties are perfect events for families with young children. The event includes Micky’s “Boo-To-You” Halloween Parade, which kicks off with a ride by the Headless Horseman. (That actually sounds scary.) There is also the Happy HalloWishes fireworks show and all Disney characters are dressed in special Halloween outfits. Magic Kingdom is also dressed up in Halloween colors and lights and there is a special Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular show performed outside Cinderella’s Castle.
Costumes are encouraged, but you should click here for a list of what you can and can’t wear into the parks. For example, masks are not allowed, as are fake weapons. In other words, if you plan on going as a Stormtrooper, it’s not a good idea to bring a blaster.
Each section of Magic Kingdom has special Trick-or-Treat locations, where kids can pick up treats and candies. There are allergy-free options as well. (For children with allergies, you can pick up a special teal treat bag to tells castmembers your child has a food allergy.)
Club Villain at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Magic Kingdom doesn’t have all the Halloween fun to itself. If you’d rather go to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, then you can attend the special Club Villain experiences. With Dr. Facilier of The Princess and the Frog as host, there’s dancing, food, musical performances and appearance from other villains.
The experiences end on Saturday, October 29, although there will be one more on Halloween night. You must make a reservation to attend, so it’s probably too late at this point. You can call 407-WDW-DINE (407-939-3463) to see if there are any tickets left for this weekend.
Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and SeaWorld are all closing on Friday due to Hurricane Matthew, which will make landfall early Friday morning.Click here to read more
