Know before you go: Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at Disney World park.
In the fall of 2018, we went to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.
It was a lot of fun. There is lots to see that isn’t there during regular park hours.
What to wear to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party
Adults can wear costumes to the Halloween Party but they do have some rules on what they will allow. So be sure to check out their guidelines if you plan to dress up.
I just wore a Nightmare Before Christmas shirt and I had a light up jack-o-lantern necklace that I had purchased from Amazon prior to our trip.
Yes. I look MEGA tired in that photo. We had been at the Animal Kingdom all day and this was toward the end of the night. The Halloween party runs until midnight and I was ready for bed.
We had dinner off property so we were a little late getting in, but we were able to start with the parade.
We found a spot where the kids would be able to see and we hung out for a bit.
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Parade
It did feel like it took FOREVER for the parade to start. That may have been because we had four excited kids with us hankering for a candy fix.
The Headless Horseman came riding down Main Street. Then there was a break in the procession where the cast members invited the kids to join them and dance in the street.
Trick-or-treating at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party
We decided that it was taking too long and the kids were too excited for the trick-or-treating so we left the parade in search of candy.
Speaking of candy, they had a lot of it and everyone is allowed to trick-or-treat. Kids and adults alike.
Allergy Friendly Candy at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party
They also have allergy-friendly options. We picked up allergy-friendly tokens at each candy station.
Then we went over to Liberty Square to cash them in for the allergy-friendly candy. They were things like bags of chocolate chips and some fruit chips.
There are designated candy areas. We didn’t find them all to be clearly marked.
They did have giant orange markers, where the line starts, but we came up behind our first one, where the candy barrels were located.
There was no line. A few cast members were there with the candy waiting to hand it out.
The kids started to run over to it, and as we were about 8 feet away we had a cast member telling us that we had to go all the way around to the beginning of the line.
Again, there was NO ONE in this line. We didn’t find this to be a very magical experience.
The other trick-or-treating stations were fine and we never ended up behind one again.
Most of them had cast members at the front to direct you in. They had long queue areas, but we walked right up to all the candy.
The kids were so focused on hitting all the trick-or-treating locations that we missed out on a bunch of the other fun stuff.
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Characters
I wanted to get photos with the characters in their costumes. But with candy on the brain, the kids weren’t interested in the lines for the characters, which were the longest lines we saw for anything.
The main characters were all grouped together back in Fantasyland by the train.
I did also see that Jack and Sally were walking around although we weren’t able to get close enough to get a photo with them.
I also missed out on seeing the Sanderson Sisters on the castle stage. That was a major bummer.
I don’t believe they are there this year. I haven’t seen anything about them on the Mickey’s Not So Scary site.
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Rides
They also have special rides for the Halloween party.
Space Mountain was pitch black.
The tea cups had a fog machine going.
And Pirates of the Caribbean had a couple of cast members as live pirates in there interacting with the boats as the passed.
Mickey’s Halloween Party Treats and Merchandise
The Halloween party has lots of party only treats as well. We were so full from dinner we didn’t end up trying any.
They have Halloween party only merchandise too, like trading pins. There are a few pins, and other merch, that can only be purchased at the Halloween party.
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Photos
One of our favorite parts of the party was the photo just inside the main gate. There was a photographer who was taking photos and they were edited to have the Headless Horseman in them. How fun is that?
They also added ghosts to the photos we took in the circle at the front of Main Street.
All in all Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween party is a lot of fun and a completely different experience than the regular Magic Kingdom.
I am actually attending it again this fall on a girls trip so I am excited to experience it without children who are hunting for free candy.
