Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP) is a special event at the Magic Kingdom held on the following select nights from 7 pm until midnight.
September: 15, 18, 20, 22, 25 and 27

The event takes place rain or shine so be prepared with ponchos. Also, Florida is very hot and humid so choose a family friendly costume that is comfortable.
MNSSHP guests must purchase a separate event ticket, prices start at $68. Guests can enter the Magic Kingdom starting at 4:00 pm, but the actual party starts at 7:00 pm. Upon entry, partygoers receive a wrist band. If spotted without a MNSSHP bracelet, guests will be escorted out. Be prepared to show your bracelet to cast members, especially around 7 pm when daily park guests are exiting.
Go trick-or-treating at the Happiest Place on Earth! As you enter the park you receive specially themed goodie bags and an event brochure. Use the brochure, it contains all the important event information (party map, entertainment schedule, treat locations, parade route, open attractions, etc.).
Also, keep your eyes open for these boo-tiful orange lanterns, they indicate CANDY!
The Eerie Entertainment is worth admission price!
Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade: Held twice nightly at 8:35 pm and 11:15 pm, Boo-To-You is a bone-rattling spectacle. A hair-raising ride by the Headless Horseman himself begins the festivities, followed by frightful floats featuring Disney Characters in Halloween costumes. Prepare yourself for the grave diggers—the Haunted Mansion stars in this delightful parade. It’s really not so scary… just fiendish fun!
Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular: The mischievous Sanderson Sisters from Disney’s Hocus Pocus are throwing an evil Halloween party. This new show is a not-to-be-missed Halloween production and features appearances by Dr. Facilier, Oogie Boogie, Maleficent and other great Disney villains, along with dancers, projections and special effects.
Happy HalloWishes: For the fiendish finale, a green and orange fireworks display complete with Disney villains, will creep across the sky.
For guests’ ghostly pleasure, a barbershop quartet of dead cowboys also will be serenading Frontierland with their chilling musical arrangements. Listen if you dare!
Meet and Greets: Don’t miss photo opportunities with your favorite Disney characters in their festive Halloween costumes.
Special Halloween Treats: If you love unique eats, consider the Happy HalloWishes Dessert Premium Package (available on select party nights). Details can be found here.
For those interested in shorter ride lines, you can skip the entertainment and head straight for trick-or-treating and attractions. I noticed the Haunted Mansion on had a “13” minute wait.
