October is here!
That means it's time to gear up for Halloween. And no one does Halloween quite like Disney World.
One of the most popular events that Disney World hosts is Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party.
For this party the Magic Kingdom is transformed in to a spooky (but child friendly) world with a ton of activities. This is a limited ticket event, so you'll see fewer crowds at this party.
So what exactly can you expect at the Halloween party this year?
There will be several rides open and running during the party. FastPass+ wont be an option, but you most likely wont even need it. With fewer people in the park, and so many other things going on during the party, rides wont be nearly as crowded.
Some of the rides are even altered slightly for the party. Space Mountain is run in COMPLETE DARKNESS. Pirates of the Caribbean has live actors. The Mad Hatter's Tea Party (The Tea Cups) have Halloween lights and music during the ride.
Trick Or Treating
Feel like stocking up on enough candy to last you a life time? Then grab your bag when you enter (and I suggest maybe bringing your own extra bag) and hit the trick or treat route to stock up on candy. Worried about allergies? No problem. You can grab a teal bag at the Town Square Theater so Cast Members handing out candy know you have an allergy.
If you love meeting characters, get ready for a real treat. At the party you will have the chance to meet characters that you'd normally never see around the parks. Some of the biggest draws include:
- Jack Skellington and Sally
- The Seven Dwarfs
- Cruella DeVill
- Lots-O-Huggin' Bear
Not to mention dozens of others! If you want to meet some of these hard to see characters you'll want to get in line early. Lines can get loooong.
Do you love the Halloween movie Hocus Pocus? Of course you do. You aren't a monster!
Well here is your chance to see the Sanderson Sisters live in the Hocus Pocus Villain Spectacular. They perform in front of the castle and bring some of their Disney villain friends.
Aside from this show there is also a special Halloween themed fireworks show, and a Disney Junior Dance Party where you can dance and play with some of your favorite characters.
The Halloween party is a ton of fun for the entire family. And if you can't make it this year, don't fret. Disney definitely keeps consistency with popular events from year to year.
I can't wait to update you on next year's fun.
