Halloween at Disney

Spending any holiday at Walt Disney World is a blast. By this I mean any holiday. If Disney did an Arbor Day celebration, we’d be there with our families. But really, who doesn’t love Halloween? After all, this is our one chance during the year to be someone we aren’t and NOT get in trouble for it! We all loved Halloween when we were kids and those who have kids now have the fun of watching them enjoy it.

As with anything, Disney does Halloween and they do it right! The best example of this is Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party or MNSSHP as you might see it written in some places. The Halloween party is one of Disney’s three hard-ticketed events (the others being Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and Mickey’s Pirate and Princess Party) and is set up in the same way. The Magic Kingdom will close to the general public at 7pm and then the real fun begins!

Your ticket to the party includes the “Boo-to-You” Halloween parade; trick-or-treating around the park at candy stations set up in various locations (avoid the gummy hot dogs and hamburgers. Trust me on this.), characters all dressed up in their costumes (bring yours too!) and the HalloWishes fireworks display which features fireworks being launched from ALL around the park!

But there is SO much more to the party than that. The “Boo-to-You” parade is really one that you don’t want to miss. From the Headless Horseman’s ride along the parade route to get things started to the Grave Diggers and their sparking shovels, it’s really a sight to be seen and experienced. We haven’t even talked about the fact that this party, like the other two allows you to ride some of your favorite Magic Kingdom rides with a much-reduced crowd since party tickets are limited. Since those tickets are limited though, they sell FAST! Halloween night is already sold out but there are still some available.
