Boo Bash

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. But in 2021, things are looking a little different.

This year, Disney World is introducing a new after hours event called Disney's After Hours Boo Bash.

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.

What Can You Expect?

This year will be different than the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party of the past. Due to COVID-19, you'll find a fun, but different experience.

Here are some of the things that have been confirmed for this bash.

Character Cavalcades

Instead of the typical parade, Disney is opting for character cavalcades at this years event.

You'll find pop up cavalcades throughout the night. These will include Mickey's Happy Halloween Cavalcade, Disney Villains Halloween Cavalcade, and Jack's Nightmare Cavalcade.

You'll also find Maleficent in the form of a fire breathing dragon.


This year you'll find some of your favorite characters around the parks. Some of the confirmed characters include Miss Carlotta at the Haunted Mansion, Goofy and Chip ‘n’ Dale in their Halloween costumes, and other surprise characters making pop up appearances.

You'll even find the Cadaver Dans performing their ghoulish acapella songs of the season.


Complimentary treats will be available throughout the park. You'll find pop corn, ice cream, and beverages all included with the price of admission to the event.

  • Guests may dress as their favorite characters, but cannot pose for pictures or sign autographs.
  • Costumes must be family-friendly and not obstructive, offensive, violent or objectionable.
  • Costumes must not contain weapons that resemble or could be mistaken for real weapons.
  • Costumes may not contain sharp or pointed objects, or materials that might accidentally strike another guest.
