Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is Not to be Missed!

This is our 3rd year attending Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, and it was just as amazing as it has been in the previous years!


I decided that I would be dressing up with the Jules this year-so she was a Pirate Princess and I was Snow White!

We started off the party by making a stop to the Mouse who started it all, and I by all I mean all of Disney. Yes, I am talking Mickey Mouse-dressed in his Halloween best!


Highlights of Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party are Meet and Greets with characters dressed in their Halloween finest, and many who don’t usually make an appearance like the Seven Dwarfs and Jack Sparrow. Plus a special parade-Boo to You, and Hallowishes-an amazing fireworks display only presented during Mickey’s  Not So Scary Halloween Party!


Studying the map to make sure they don’t miss out on any of the fun, including all the Trick or Treating areas!


We began our night with a little Trick or Treating!

Boo to You Parade!

With two parades at the event, we chose to do the first one. The excitement grows as the start of the parade nears especially when guests are told the Headless Horseman is near!


I need to note a change with the Headless Horseman. In year’s past, he raced through. This year it was more like a slow trot-it was like a galloping runway with him posing for pictures-in fact he kind of turned so everyone could get great pics!

A few minutes after the Headless Horseman trotted away the parade started. I LOVE this parade. It is just so much fun.






Here comes the Candy! In year’s past the Candy part was at the end of the Boo to You Parade! Cast Members would give out candy. Julia and her friend were looking forward to being given candy at the end of the parade. Well they not only switched the time when the candy floats come by, but no candy was given out.

The disappointment of no candy being given out passed when the Villains came parading by!



The parade ended close to 9pm. Hallowishes which is the absolute BEST fireworks display that Disney puts on was at 9:30pm. Julia and her friend wanted to ride Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. This is another great perk of events like Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party-rides/attractions usually have much shorter waits than during regular park hours. Most rides in Magic Kingdom are actually walk on. Not Mine Train, but pretty close. We made it on, and back in time for Hallowishes which started promptly at 9:30pm.





After Hallowishes Julia, her friend and I took advantage of the short line for Mine Train and also Big Thunder Mountain. We did a little bit more Trick or Treating, and called it a night a little before midnight. We were trying to avoid turning into pumpkins-someone couldn’t quite make it!


Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is definitely a Must Do in my opinion! It is not to late to book a Fall trip, and get to go to the most fun Halloween party you will ever attend. Interested in booking your trip-email me at disneywithchildren@gmail.com today so we can start planning!

Meet and Greet with Mike & Sulley


I often get asked-do I ever get bored with going to the Disney parks? I can answer truthfully no. Because even if it seems like I have done everything there is to do-trust me there is always something I have not had a chance to experience? I have a soft spot for the lovable characters […]
