Trick or Treat Locations

Just like the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, there are plenty of freebies at the Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!!

Trick or Treat Locations are set up around the park (also listed on your park guide map) with an inflatable candy corn to mark the spot.

Treat bags are handed out as you enter the park, or if you’re like us and you are so excited to see the castle that you completely miss those handouts we got ours at the treat locations.

It was so much fun to say, “trick or treat!” and feel like a kid again!


Character Meet and Greets

Characters you will only find at the MNSSHP are Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Daisy in their Halloween costumes, Jack and Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas, and select Disney Villains are also available.

Halloween Magic Shots

Just a few of the Magic Shots offered at the MNSSHP are the Headless Horseman outside of the entrance to the Magic Kingdom, Ghosts from the Haunted Mansion are located at the pumpkins near the flagpole, and the Poison Apple and Cauldron are offered down Main Street USA.

Other Magic Shot locations are listed on your park guide map or on the My Disney Experience App. 

Must-Do Attractions

There are many attractions available during the party, and while some of the popular attractions like Space Mountain will still have long wait times, for the most part, all the rides are a short wait if a wait at all.

I don’t like to wait in line during the party with so much going on but there are a few attractions I consider must-do for the MNSSHP:

  • Haunted Mansion(do it first and last!! Multiple times…it’s amazing during the party!)
  • Pirates of the Caribbean
  • Peter Pan’s Flight
  • Astro Orbiter (or Dumbo if little ones are afraid of heights)
  • The People Mover
  • Space Mountain(for 2018 this ride was completely in the dark…spooky!)

Mickey’s “Boo-to-You” Halloween Parade

This parade was jammed packed full of your favorite Disney characters from Jack Sparrow to Mickey & Minnie to Peter Pan & Captain Hook to the Hitchhiking Ghosts!!

The last time I saw this parade was in 2009 and even though there were still some familiar parts, the new floats like Wreck it Ralph were definitely a site to see….and smell!!!!

Man, Disney goes all out!!

Mickey’s “Boo-to-You” Halloween Parade is shown at 9:15 pm and 11:15 pm giving you no reason at all to miss the spooktacular event!!

Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular

The Sanderson Sisters are back!…and there’s “heck” to pay!!!

Join the Hocus Pocus sisters as they try to conjure up a new spell along with all your favorite Disney Villains.

This show was my favorite of everything we did at the party!!

The Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular is shown 4 times during the MNSSHP: 7:40 pm, 8:35 pm, 10:45 pm and 12:00 am.

PS: It amazed me how many people around us hadn’t seen the movie Hocus Pocus

Shocker I know!! If you haven’t seen the movie, definitely see it before going to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!!


Happy HALLOWISHES Fireworks

The Disney Villains take over the skies above Cinderella Castle with this chilling fireworks show.

Additional Info:

  • The Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a special ticketed event starting at $80 and going up depending on the date/night you choose. The dates and times vary from year to year but typically the party runs from 7pm-12am. (prices subject to change)
  • FastPasses are NOT available during the MNSSHP hours and PS…you don’t need them. We walked on most of the rides available during the party with minimal to no wait at all!
  • Allergy friendly treats are available. See a Cast Member for more details!!
  • If you have little ones be sure to check out the Monstrous Scream-O-Ween Ball located at Rockettower Plaza Stage in Tomorrowland. Mike Wazowski and Sulley are having a cute dance party to celebrate Halloween!
  • Don’t forget to pick up a Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party park map guide. They are available at the park entrance as well as at the counters of most shops inside the park. This park guide will help you find all of the events and entertainment mentioned above.

Insider Tip: You can get into the Magic Kingdom park at 4 pm on the day of the MNSSHP…that’s 3 extra hours of fun. You can schedule FastPasses during that 3 hour time period before the party actually starts at 7 pm.


I highly recommend this special ticketed event at Disney’s Magic Kingdom for kids and adults alike.

We had so much fun I know we will be back for more Halloween at Disney World fun next year!
