There may not be a Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom this year but that doesn’t mean that Halloween won’t be celebrated! From September 15 to October 31 you are sure to “fall” in love with Magic Kingdom Park all over again. You will be able to soak in the aura of autumn with Main Street, U.S.A. dressed in fall décor, and other seasonal offerings.  

There will be some bewitching surprises this year, including a special Halloween-themed cavalcade with Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, and pals wearing their favorite Halloween costumes. You may even spot those rascally chipmunks, Chip ‘n’ Dale, in costume over in Frontierland, and look for other Disney character friends dressed up and riding the horse-drawn trolley down Main Street, U.S.A. 

And speaking of costumes, you will want to get yours ready! To bring some Halloween party fun into the park this year, for the first time guests of all ages can wear their funniest, Disney-ist, most creative costumes during Magic Kingdom regular operating hours from September 15 to October 31. As an important reminder, costume masks are not permitted for adults; only children younger than 14 years old are permitted to wear costume masks. In addition, all guests are required to wear approved face coverings during their visit. 

Halloween is one my most favorite times to be in the Magic Kingdom! I LOVE pumpkin-themed wreaths that adorn lampposts up and down Main Street, U.S.A. We also love the specialty themed holiday Disney PhotoPass photo opps! Photographers will be available throughout the park for themed photo opps.

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a ‘must do’ is my opinion! This is a hard ticket event (meaning an additional ticket must be purchased), kicking off August 16, 2019 and is held on select nights through November 1, 2019 at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World.

This fabulous event is about to get even better! Disney has announced the debut “Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular,” a new interactive treat trail at Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor, overlays on some of your favorites rides and some great additions to “Mickey’s Boo to You Halloween Parade!”

“Mickey’s Boo to You Halloween Parade!” is my favorite Disney parade and is presented twice nightly during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. (We recommend catching the second parade because it is less crowded!)

The parade features fun floats which represent each land of the Magic Kingdom celebrating Halloween. The parade opens with all of our favorite Disney friends, including Mickey and Minnie Mouse in all-new Halloween costumes, as they trick-or-treat down Main Street, U.S.A. Representing Liberty Square. The Haunted Mansion (my favorite part) features Hitchhiking Ghosts and the new, spectral Bride, who glides among the waltzing spirits.

New to feature Tomorrowland, brings The Incredibles and Edna Mode, followed by Buzz Lightyear and Alien explorers discovering crystalline treasures on the surface of a planetary playset float.

Halloween wouldn’t be complete without candy and “Mickey’s Boo to You Halloween Parade!” features Wreck-It Ralph, Vanellope von Schweetz and the girls from Sugar Rush making sure there’s plenty of sweet stuff to go around! Adventureland is represented Pirates! Clarabelle Cow hosts a square dance during a Frontierland hoedown, and a wicked assortment of Disney Villains represent Fantasyland in an awe-inspiring grand finale.
