Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Overview

Calling all ghoulish mortals - Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween party returned this year and let’s just say, Let’s Boo This! Or more so…let’s RE-BOO This! After a long anticipated wait, our team of Travel Experts had the privilege to attend Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party on opening day back in August and yes, we know that this may be a couple of months later - but here are the top reasons why we have returned to Magic Kingdom multiple times this year to re-experience all the spooky yet sweet food, experiences, and entertainment options that MNSSHP offers!


Spooky Snacks on Snacks on Snacks

During regular park hours at the Magic Kingdom, guest’s can purchase some spooky snacks like a Binx’s Pastry Tail and a Cold Witches Brew Coffee from Cheshire Cafe, but some exclusive snacks aren’t available until Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party begins. Let’s talk about some of our FAVORITE snacks that we tried during our recent visits!

First stop, we headed over to Sleepy Hollow to try some haunted treats like the Grave Digger Milkshake, which is a Coconut and Matcha milkshake, a shareable Worms and Dirt Funnel cake that is topped with chocolate ice cream, Cookie crumbs and some gummy worms and a Chilling Chamber Pop with layers of cake and icing topped with chocolate, but beware the Chilling Chamber Pop can get a little messy and is easiest to eat with a fork or spoon! Overall, we LOVED the Worms & Dirt funnel cake as it was a fun & delicious spin on some of our favorite childhood desserts and its presentation was spooktacular in itself!

For guests who don’t have a huge sweet tooth, there are some savory options available throughout the park that are exclusive to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Stop by Friar’s Nook for a Hades Hotdog, a SPICY beef and pork hotdog topped with Hades’ relish and pickles. It wouldn’t be Friar’s Nook without tots and these don’t disappoint! The Un Poco Loco Tots are topped with chorizo sausage, green onion and Hades’ cheese sauce are to DIE for!

The CBTC favorite snack by far can be found at the Golden Oak Outpost was the Spellbinding Fried Pie. The fried pie is filled with buffalo chicken, blue cheese and mozzarella and topped with Jalapeño aioli and a candy eye. Our close second favorite is found right nearby at Pecos Bills - the Almond Sweet Corn Cake. At first glance, you truly think its an ear of corn but this “vanilla cake” is extremely dense like a pound cake with hints of almond and is topped with icing & candy corn! 

Merchandise To SCREAM For

While all guests are welcome to shop the Halloween merchandise in the parks throughout the day, at the beginning of the Halloween Party party goers are required to show their Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party bands to purchase “Halloween Party Exclusive Merchandise”. Located in the Emporium on Main Street, you will find a large selection of Halloween Party Exclusive merchandise such as spirit jerseys, pins, and other fun merchandise. The CBTC favorites from this year's Halloween Party merchandise selection were the acid washed Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party t-shirt and the party exclusive ornament. 


MNSSHP Shows & Parades

During the span of the evening, there are several nightly shows that are sure to captivate all party goers. The Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular has 4 showings at every October Halloween Party at 7:40 PM, 8:35 PM, 10:45 PM and Midnight. The Spelltacular features the Sanderson Sisters and some other spooky favorites at the Castle Forecourt Stage (*weather permitting). 

Located in Frontierland, twice a night at 9:15 PM & 11:15 PM guests can see Powerline and their favorite villains and characters in Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade. The parade route starts in Frontierland and continues through Liberty Square, passing Cinderella’s Castle and down Main Street U.S.A. For guests who want to take advantage of short wait times, we suggest catching the second show and hitting some rides or visiting with some party exclusive characters during the first parade. 


What kind of a party would it be without fireworks! Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular starts at 10:15 PM (*weather permitting) and is a staple fireworks show that features a projection and laser show along with some of your favorite spooky tunes. The best viewing spot for the projections is in front of Cinderella’s Castle, so if seeing the projections is a must for your traveling party we suggest getting a spot early. 


Trick or Treat Trails

To satisfy your sweet tooth, make sure that you get your trick or treat bag when entering the park for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. There are several trick or treat trails in all of the lands throughout Magic Kingdom. Guests are free to visit them as often as they would like. We suggest bringing some gallon size ziploc bags to make traveling home easier with your massive candy haul. There are also allergy friendly treats on Main Street U.S.A. and in Liberty Square to accommodate most guests. 


Ride Overlays

Have you ever ridden Space Mountain with all of the lights off?! No - we don’t mean the usual way, but in the complete pitch black! If not, Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is your opportunity to zoom through space in the complete dark. The spinning tea cups at the Mad Tea Party also have some spooky Halloween lighting that are great for a photo op! When riding Pirates of the Caribbean guests may notice some new pirates throughout the queue and ride. Keep an eye out for real life people/pirates (not just animatronics) throughout the Pirates of the Caribbean - that you will hear singing and cracking jokes during the ride. 


We highly suggest splurging on Memory Maker for your fall Walt Disney World Vacations! Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party has several fun and exciting Magic Shots and Halloween props for guests to take advantage of at various photopass locations. Guests will even find fun interactive frames throughout the park. PhotoPass locations are marked in your pamphlet with a green camera and step-in photo frames have a small black 50th logo. Ask your travel expert about adding on Memory Maker to your upcoming trip!
