It's already time to plan for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party! Held on select nights in September, October and November, the special ticketed event is fun for the whole family.
We've compiled some of our top tips for getting the most out of this scary good time!
-Park tickets are not needed for entrance into the party. Just your Not-So-Scary ticket will get you inside the turnstiles. So if you're not opting for the Park Hopper ticket option, why not spend the morning at another park? Or, just spend the afternoon at your resort relaxing, so you can take full advantage of the late Not-So-Scary hours!
-Weekend parties are more expensive and more crowded. If you can, opt for a weeknight party earlier in the season to avoid the extra cost and crowds.
-Be sure to look for treat bags that are handed out once you enter the park.
-Trick-or-treat lines get shorter as the night goes on. Why not ride your favorite attractions, and catch the Boo to You parade and Happy Hallowishes fireworks first, then spend the last hour or two trick-or-treating?
-Check the map for Trick-or-Treat Trails. With multiple candy stops along the way, these will be the biggest bang for your candy buck!
-There are two Boo to You parades, and the second parade is much less crowded. Try catching it from Frontierland or Liberty Square for a less-crowded view.
-Don't miss Hallowishes -- the Halloween version of Magic Kingdom's Wishes fireworks. With 360 degree displays, it's truly a sight to see!
-Take PhotoPass photos. Special scenes are available only at Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween party, such as photos with the Hitchhiking Ghosts at the Haunted Mansion! Plus, all your favorite characters are out in their own Halloween costumes, too!
-The Haunted Mansion is not to be missed. "Streetmosphere" characters often interact with with guests in the queue line here. And the Cast Members take it up a notch with ghoulier-than-usual face makeup!
-Dress up! The most fun part about Mickey's Not-So-Scary is seeing the costumes of fellow guests. Be creative but mindful of the heat and humidity -- and be sure to have comfortable shoes!
