Were you guys able to read the last post about Halloween Horror Nights? If yes, you could sense how scared I was, couldn’t you?
Well… you will probably think I am stubborn, since I will again talk about this type of party. However, the one I will guide you through today is totally my cup of tea. First, because it is a Disney one and I love Disney. Second, because you can wear a costume and pretend you are part of that magical kingdom. With that said, put your favorite character costume on and let’s learn a little more about Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party with me… I mean… with Queen Elsa.
While the party officially starts at 7 p.m., party guests can begin entering the park as early as 4 p.m. I highly recommend you get to the park around 4p.m., so you can take advantage of a few rides that are getting empty, due to the non-party-goers heading their way out of the park. You can also grab a bite before, so that you can be ready to enjoy all the activities. And let me tell you: you will have a lot of them!
- Mickey’s “Boo-To-You” Halloween Parade – 8:30 p.m. and 11:15 p.m.
I recommend finding a good spot 30 minutes prior to the beginning of the parade. You will not want to miss the Headless Horseman, all of the spooky floats and the characters in costume.
- Celebrate the Magic – 10 p.m/ Happy HalloWishes – 10:15 p.m. – the highlight of the night is the Happy HalloWishes! The perfect spot to watch it is the Main Street. U.S.A.
- Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular – 9:15 p.m., 10:40 p.m., 12 a.m.
The show is held exclusively during the party and features the Sanderson Sisters, Winifred, Mary and Sarah, along with other Disney villains such as Dr. Facilier, Ooogie Boogie and Maleficent. “Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular” replaced the Villains Mix ‘n’ Mingle.
Another thing you can do is to have ice cream in the Poison Apple Mug Sundae. It comes filled with vanilla ice cream, canned apple pie filling, whipped cream, and caramel drizzle. Hummm, yummy! My group of friends was in the mood for popcorn though. Take a look at the Mickey’s popcorn bucket. It will be totally yours to keep as a souvenir!
If you do not wish to have a mug or a bucket to take home but a bag full of candies instead, you can go trick or treating around the park. There is no limit to how many times you can go back to the same location for more treats.

I know I mentioned that I simply love the fact we can wear a costume. I must add that I get even happier taking pictures with the characters, because they are wearing costumes as well. Remember: favorite Disney villains make special appearances to meet and greet party guests.
Mila’s best tip: if you have kids with you and you do not mind them staying up late, go to the lines for character meet and greets during first parade performance and plan on seeing the second Boo to You parade.
Mila’s best tip 2:
A question that comes up frequently is:
How MK cast members can keep track of the party guests transitioning from the park close to the start of the party?
To satisfy your curiosity here is the answer:
Before the park closes for the party at 7 p.m., cast members are out and about to remind guests that the park closes at 7 p.m. All party guests will be given party wristbands upon entering and those guests already in the park will find cast members scanning party tickets and distributing wristbands. At 7 p.m., cast members positioned around the park will be asking guests to show wristbands if they are not visible. Guests that do not have them will be directed to the exits.
