Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party 2017 Tips, Tricks, and Must Do’s!

Happy Fall Love Bugs,


Ok, ok…..Fall may not be here just yet, but it is definitely around the corner, along with my favorite Walt Disney World event, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party which begins this week!  The Sanderson Sisters are back for their third year in a row, which makes me so happy because who doesn’t love Hocus Pocus, right?!

If you’ve never attended this hard ticket event, this is the year to check that dream off your bucket list and see why its one of the most attended events at Walt Disney World each year.  Here are 5 reasons you’ll love Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!


5. The Decor

As if Magic Kingdom isn’t whimsical enough, nothing beats the most happiest place on earth in the Fall!  The entire park is exploding with Fall and Halloween decor at every angle.  I personally love all of the photo opportunities!


4. Hocus Pocus Villain Spectacular 

 The Hocus Pocus Villain Spectacular is performed several times each evening at Cinderella’s castle.  Here, the Sanderson Sisters, from the beloved film, Hocus Pocus, create a spell and bring out all of their Disney villain friends for the most exciting halloween party ever.  The best part about this show is that characters that aren’t normally seen around the parks make an appearance, making it unique.  The music and fireworks are also spectacular and are sure to drop your jaw.  This show is exclusive to this event and can’t be seen during regular park hours.


3. Trick-or-Treating

I don’t know about you, but Halloween is all about the candy and Disney World doesn’t disappoint when it comes to fulfilling kids (and adults) candy bags.  There are more than a dozen different candy stops throughout the parks where guests will receive a handful of name brand candy and chocolate for their goody bags.  Chances are, you’ll leave with a huge bag of treats that are sure to put a smile on your face.


2. The Costumes

The best part of Halloween is dressing up and while wearing costumes isn’t the norm at Disney Parks, it’s totally normal at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.  Adults and kids can dress up as their favorite characters for the entire event.  I love seeing all of the costumes, especially the clever ones, all through the night.  Last year, the gang and I dressed up as various characters from Toy Story (as pictured above).  Make sure you check out the costume rules and guidelines before planning your costume!


1. The Parades and Fireworks

The Boo To You parade and nightly firework show is also exclusive to this event.  I love that the parade brings out characters that aren’t usually seen in the daily parades at the park.  My favorite part is the headless horseman who travels along the parade route just before the parade begins.  The fireworks also sparkle in the sky as it is synchronized with some of the most beloved Disney villain tunes.  It is surely an amazing sight to see!

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party will run on select nights from August 25th through November 1, 2017.
