Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

On our Disney trip last year we went to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party for the first time. If you are a Disney fan it is definitely an event that you’ll want to experience at least once. There were some things that we learned from our event, so I wanted to share it with you!

The first is that this event is not one that I would recommend for little kids that are easily scared. You know your kid and although it is very family friendly, it does have some spooky elements to it. Our youngest REFUSED to ride the Haunted Mansion, even though he’s ridden it before.

The second is that I would recommend setting aside a ticket day for it. You can typically enter in the park around 6 p.m. (this changes) for the event, and you’ll most likely end up staying until around midnight. If you’ve already been in the park all day this can make for a very late night, especially with younger kids.

Pick one or two chosen character meet and greets and head there to get in line as soon as you get in the park. The costumed characters take breaks, so what may be a thirty minute line, may turn into a much longer line if the characters are taking breaks ever so often.

Plan ahead and pick what you think are your key events. We picked the parade, a treat at Storybook Treats and watched the fireworks from that area. Then we went trick or treating as we walked through the park.

Get the magic pictures! You can only get them at the event, and we found that most of these lines were not long.

Ride the rides! Especially this year, some rides have special experiences, and there were rides that we walked on to, that you can’t always do that.

And lastly, have fun! There are so many different things to do at these events that sometimes you forget to actually enjoy it.

  1. […] Last, the transportation back to the hotels is by bus. For our experience (I say that because that type of thing is always subject to change), there was no monorail or boat option. We had to get on a bus after the party that went to the Contemporary, Polynesian, and Grand Floridian. It took awhile. Overall, I think the after hours experience is a great idea. I would suggest trying it. However, if you want a spooky themed experience (depending on when you are going), I would suggest Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. The tickets are similar cost and you can check out our experience with that here! […]
