Party fun takes place from 7 p.m.-midnight, although party ticket holders may enter the park as early as 4 p.m. to enjoy regular park offerings. You should be in the park no later than 5:45 p.m. to get your wristbands to get a good spot to watch the parade on Main Street USA. Plus you want to enjoy the Magic Kingdom for as long as possible! 

A special wristband will be issued that will tell Cast Members that you are there for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. If you're already in the park when they start issuing wristbands, look for one of the kiosks inside the park. They are well marked with big signs. A special entrance outside of Magic Kingdom is usually available for those entering the park just for the party.

    If you're looking for the least crowded times to experience the Halloween Party, generally dates in August, September and early October are best. Crowds are always larger on weekends. 

    In general, higher priced admission tickets usually means the party is expected to have larger crowds. 

     

    Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party does indeed sell out on some nights, especially on Oct 31 so it's best to purchase your tickets well in advance.  

     

    Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party 2018 Tickets

    Advance tickets start at $75 for adults and $70 for children ages 3-9 (plus tax). Day-of tickets start at $85 for adults and $80 for children ages 3-9 (plus tax). Purchasing tickets in advance is highly recommended. 

     

    Arriving at the Party

    Guests of all ages are welcome to dress in costume on party nights. Be sure to check out the Costume Guidelines Page, it has critical information about what can / cannot be worn.

    As you arrive, grab a treat bag for trick-or-treating and pick up a party event map, which displays all the locations of trick-or-treat stations, special entertainment and more.

    Head to the Main Street Fire Station and pick up an event-exclusive Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom spell card. This year’s design features Orange Bird, how cool is that! 

    Don't miss the “Boo To You” parade, which is offered twice on party nights. The Headless Horseman is the star of the show and one of the coolest things to see, so don't be late! He leads off the procession, which includes classic Disney characters (in not-so-scary Halloween costumes), plus an entire portion of the parade is devoted to the Haunted Mansion. That's a crowd fav! 

    The Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular” stage show delights Guests by bringing the Sanderson Sisters back for the evening, calling on Disney villains to help them conjure the ultimate Hocus Pocus Party Potion. 

    Disney Villains light up the night during “Happy HalloWishes Fireworks.” This spectacular features a villainous soundtrack with songs like “Grim Grinning Ghosts,” “Poor Unfortunate Souls,” “Never Smile at a Crocodile” and more.

    Guests with a sweet tooth can take treats to the next level by perusing the tasty selection of limited-time goodies created specifically for the event. 

    As a reminder, tickets for select nights for both Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party are available through your My Disney Experience account. 

     

    Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party FAQ

    Q: Are there any restrictions on the kinds of costumes that can be worn?

    A: Be sure to read the full Costume Guidelines Page but in short, costumes that are grotesque, obscene, suggest violence or are otherwise inappropriate for a family-friendly atmosphere are prohibited. Face masks on those age 14 and up are not allowed. Children and adults may dress as a favorite character but they cannot sign autographs or pose for photos. Disney Cast Members will monitor costumes carefully throughout the night.

    Q: Where is the best place to watch the Halloween Parade? 

    A: Main Street USA is the best place to view the parade. Be sure to arrive 45-60 minutes prior to the parade to get a good spot. If you don't mind getting there even earlier, try the second floor of the Main Street railroad station. You'll have a terrific view of the parade and Cinderella Castle. 

    Q: can I make FastPass Selections for rides during the party? 

    A: No. FastPass queues will be closed at the start of the party. There's so much to see and do, that you probably won't have time for many rides anyway. As you might imagine, Haunted Mansion will be super popular on party nights so be prepared for a longer than normal wait. 

    Q: If I enter the park at 4 p.m. can I make FastPass selections? 

    A: You can make FastPass selections only if you also have general admission ticket to Magic Kingdom Park. If you have only the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party ticket, you can of course enter at 4 p.m., but you will not be able to make FastPass selections. 

    Q: Once the park closes, how will Disney know I have a Mickey's Not So Scary Party Ticket?

    A: There will be several kiosks located in the park where you can swipe your Magic Band to obtain a wristband. The wristband will signal Cast Members that you have a valid party ticket and you'll be permitted to stay in the park. There is also a dedicated entrance that you can use if you're not already inside the park. 

    Q: Can I bring my own Halloween trick or treat bag?

    A: Sure, and it's a good idea to do so!

    New this year

    Disney revised costuming guidelines for special events in its theme parks. While costumed attire may be worn, guests ages 14 and older are strongly discouraged from wearing layered costumes or costume props that surround the entire body as they may be subject to additional security screening. Additionally, costumes may not contain any weapons that resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon.
