Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

August 7, 2017

Let me start out by saying I LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE this party!! I have many clients this year that have purchased tickets to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party so I wanted to give you a taste of my experience and thoughts since I’m often asked about holiday parties and the extra cost.

During last years trip for the party it was just my husband and I, since he had a conference to attend and I took the opportunity to visit my favorite place!

We attended the party on a Saturday night and tickets were $95 each, but I used my annual pass discount so we paid a little less than that. Let me tell you, it’s worth every single penny and more!

My only regret was wishing we had the kids with us for the party because we kept face timing them so we could show them things we really wanted them to see. I think they were partly annoyed at our constant facetime but it helped our guilty feeling. Ha! However, we’re doing it again this year!! This year we will be attending the party on a Friday night and we may even dress up. Stay tuned!

The party officially begins at 7pm, but you can enter the park beginning at 4pm with your party ticket. You’ll receive a wrist band at the entrance. We immediately were given our trick or treat bags. They had several treat stations throughout the park and the cast members are extra generous with the treats by giving you a handful!

The parade…..Mickey’s Boo-To-You… oh where do I begin?! I think I can honestly say it’s my favorite Disney parade! I Loooove the Haunted Mansion ghosts, the gravediggers, the characters, all of it!

One thing to note – you cannot use Fastpass during the party and the wait times weren’t horrible, but some of the character meet and greets were over an hour long. I’ve heard some ramblings that that may be changing this year, but I’ll let you know once we have confirmation either way.

The castle show is cute, based upon Hocus Pocus with various villains. The castle show happens a few times during the party and we chose to see one of the later ones and it was quite crowded. It was tough to see it all so we didn’t watch the ending, but rather went to ride more attractions while the crowd was in front of the castle. This years plan is to watch one of the earlier shows and hit the rides and meet and greets later.

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween party features a special fireworks show called “HalloWishes”. This show is Awesome! It obviously doesn’t beat the original Wishes, or shall I say “Happily Ever After” but it’s definitely fun for a change. Main Street USA was lit up in Blue, Green and Purple with lots of fog. Very cool!

The music, OH the Music!! Side note – I had asked in a gift shop if they sold the music and she told me no, but I was on a mission and I found it at the Emporium. Can you guess what I’m rocking out to in my car everyday during the Fall? :)

I’m often asked, “is the party worth the extra cost”, “will my kids enjoy it”, and the answer is YES! Personally, I think the holiday parties are always worth it. They’re fun to experience, you can potentially meet characters that aren’t always available for meet and greets, and a Disney party never disappoints!

Remember, the park will close early to guests without a party ticket on party nights so if you’re visiting with Base tickets, I would choose another park to visit those days!

I am excited to attend the Halloween party yet again and look forward to sharing the experience with you! Be sure to follow along on my Facebook page as well as Instagram for photos, videos, live videos and whatever else I can throw in there.
