This was my first Mickey’s Not-So-Scary, but it will not be my last. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, and I love making the celebration bigger by adding more times to get dressed up and have fun. The Mickey’s Not-So-Scary is the perfect event to break out your favorite Disney character costumes and have a blast at the Magic Kingdom at the Disney World Resort.
The tone of the Mickey’s Not-So-Scary event is “not-so-scary” meaning children of every age can enjoy the fun. It is perfect for kids of all ages. I brought my daughter to the Halloween Party with another three years a couple of weeks ago. I would bring snacks and water for your kids and also a stroller. Even if your child doesn’t use a stroller anymore like mine, you will need it when you are leaving the park getting the probably sleeping kids back to the hotel.
The best part of the Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is that you get to wear costumes to the park. Generally, that is not allowed. Before you arrive dressed up for the occasion, read the official costume guidelines at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party for children and adults. It is pretty straightforward, and everything that I wanted to wear was on the list.
The Boo to You Halloween Parade starts with the kids getting treats and dancing down main street with characters. Once the parade starts with the floats, you get to see all your favorite characters and villains. It is not scary at all and the kids got really into the fun.
Most of the rides are open during the Halloween Party. We were able to get on the Buzz Lightyear ride with only a 5 minute wait!
Trick or Treat Stations
Kids and adults are given treat bags to be filled up at the treat locations throughout the park. The treat areas are decorated with spookiness, and the park has a fun spooky feel to it.
If you or your kids have allergies, Disney has you covered. When you arrive for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, see a Cast Member to pick up a teal treat bag—the official color of food allergy awareness—after entering the event, or from official Allergy-Friendly Centers at Town Square Theater and Heritage House. Then, when you trick-or-treat with your teal bag, Cast Members will give you a teal token at each treat station. Later on, you can redeem your teal tokens at our Allergy-Friendly Centers to receive your special treats!
Characters encounters are everywhere! You can meet some of your favorite characters that are not usually at the park during the Halloween Party. We saw Alice in Wonderland, the Mad Hatter, the Queen of Hearts, and Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dumb.
