You walk down Main Street, USA and see the Halloween Decorations, Cast Members holding Welcome signs, and the rush of excitement consumes you! Yes, it is Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party! This event is a Disney fan favorite for many great reasons each year! You can trick-or-treat throughout the park, meet some of your favorite characters, and visit most of your favortite attractions. You can also dance along with some of your favorite Disney characters, enjoy the Hocus Pocus Villain Spectacular, Happy HalloWishes Fireworks, and of course, the infamous Mickey's Boo-to-Your Halloween Parade!
In order to get the best experience out of this party, here are a few tips to help you along:
The party starts at 7pm, but with your special event ticket ( and you don't need regular park admission to get into these parties) you can enter as early as 4pm! Take advantage of this time by riding some rides that will not be open during the party like Jungle Cruise. Then grab a bite to eat, maybe at Peco's Bill, before the trick-or-treating and Halloween activities begin. Check your special event times guide because only a few restaraunts will remain open during the party.
If you can, try to take it easy the day of the party. Perhaps visit Disney Springs for some shopping and dining or hang out by your resort pool. Trust me, your feet will thank you at midnight if you have rested during the day.
Candy, Candy, Candy! I found the best place and some of the best characters you will find during this party is in-between Fantasyland and Space Mountain. There is a little trail tucked back there and runs beside The Barnstormer Coaster entrance, take this trail and you will find several candy stops and several characters too!
Talking about candy--don't wait in line if you don't have to. If you see the line for candy is long, just wait a bit, go ride a ride, grab a snack and then head back for the candy. The line will probably be shorter and you'll get more candy towards the end of the night as the castmembers tend to be more generous when the party is winding down.
There will be 2 parades at this party. I suggest attending the later parade as the crowds will be thinning. I sat at Sleepy Hollow snacks and enjoyed a delicious ice cream sandwich while watching the parade.
Plan the day after the party to be a relaxing day as well. The party ends at midnight so by the time you get back to your resort and wind down from all that sugar it will be late and you will want to sleep-in the next morning.
