It's Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party

Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is arriving in the Magic Kingdom Park and this year promised to be the best ever. How can we be so sure? First of all, it's going on for 10 (count 'em 10) big nights. And second of all, backstage preparation is already underway.

While this annual event is billed at not-so-scary, the task of totally transforming the Magic Kingdom in a mere three hours each night of the party can be a little scary to Disney's team of decorators. To make it happen, they start their planning in late spring and continue right up to dress rehearsal. "It's like dressing the Park up for Halloween," says David Hartmann, the Art Director for the event. "We try to think what makes sense for the land and the characters and Mickey's Mouse-ka-rade costume parade. "That's my favorite part because every year we make it better and better."

Dressing up the park is just a part of the story. This year will also feature special Halloween fireworks, family photos, face painting and storytellers. Of course, you'll also enjoy unlimited use of the most popular Magic Kingdomattractions and trick-or-treating throughout the Park. David told us to keep a look out for the giant Mickey pumpkins. "There's candy in all of them."

This year's event takes place from 7:00 p.m. until midnight on
October 3, 5, 10, 14, 16, 19, 24, 26, 30 and 31. Regular advance tickets are $29.95 for ages 10 and up, and $24.95 for ages 3-9. Day-of ticket prices are $32.95 for ages 10 and up, and $27.95 for ages 3-9. Tax not included. For tickets, call (407) 560-PASS (7277).

We've been to the party for the past 2 years. It's a great way to see the MK without all the lines.

You'll definately want to catch the ride of the Headless Horseman. It's right before the parade which also a must see! I wouldn't bother with the steam boat ride. We waited for it the first time and were disappointed.  

One of the first things you should do is get your picture taken. It's a nice memento of the evening.

When are you going to see the World? We'll be there in October as well.  

Really the lines aren't all that long. You're pretty much able to walk on just about all of them. But I have heard that the party held on Halloween the lines were pretty long.

The first time we went our kids were 4 and 8 and they did really well.  

Most people leave either right before or after the parade but not exactly sure what time that was.

Hey! Carol, Michael and I will be attending MNSSHP on Friday, October 3rd. It's the first time for all of us at that party.

Anybody else going to that one?
:confused:

I'm probably going on October 10th. That is my son's birthday - I think that will be a fun time to go! :D

I would suggest as soon as you know when you want to get them to order them:

2003 Prices:
Advance Sale: Adult - $31.90 -- Children (3-9) - $26.58.
($3 shipping and handling fee)

To purchase tickets call (407) W-DISNEY (934-7639).

No Disney Club or Annual Passholder discounts available.

Last year the advance price was $2 less per ticket, and you also are assured a ticket, some nights sell out (usually closer to Halloween)


Also, 3 years ago we went on Halloween Night, and it was very cool to see all the costumes, however, by the time of the first parade it was PACKED!!!! I'm glad we're going earlier this year, I'm hoping it won't be so crowded.

I'm glad we're going earlier, too. We'll be at the very first night of the parties being offered this year.

Yup! We've ordered our tickets, but they haven't arrived in the mail yet. We only ordered a day or two ago, and the CM on the phone said at that time that all of the MNNSHP and MVMCP tickets are still available - - as of then none had sold out yet. But I agree that if anyone is thinking about it, they better get their tickets soon because a lot of the nights of these events do sell out every year.

We have two choices for attending the party. Sunday October 5th or Friday October 10th. I would think that the one on the 5th would not be as crowded? What would be good thing to do the day of attending the party and also the next day? We have thought about doing Animal Kingdom the day of and then a water park the day after. Any thoughts? :ghostface:

My guess (just a hunch) is that the Sunday one would not be as crowded as the Friday one.
:rolleyes:

Sounds like a good plan for what to do those days. Of course, you could even go to the Magic Kingdom the day of the party - - When you show them your tickets for MNNSHP when entering in the daytime with your park passport, I've heard they'll direct you where to go to get a wristband that will let you stay in the Magic Kingdom at the end of the day when they are shooing out all the other Guests. That would beat having to line up outside the gates for entry to MNNSHP, in my opinion.

The day after you'll probably want to sleep late, especially if you stay until the party closes late into the night. So a water park that day sounds great.

I don't know about that.  One of my most Magical memories of MVMCP was while waiting in line for the gates to open.  The CMs had us all take part in a rousing version of the Twelve Days of Christmas.  Each line took one of the Days but since there were only 6 lines, each line had to do double duty.  One CM kept running back and forth, pointing at your line when it was your turn.  Unless these CMs were the best actors in the world, they seemed to be having the time of their lives.....as much, or more, fun than we were having.  I'll always cherish this memory.  I can imagine that they might do some sort of seasonal entertainment for the Halloween Party also.

A note to remember if you won't already be in MK before the Party.....If the Halloween Party is anything like MVMCP, the gates open at least a half hour before the stated times, so be there early to get a jump start on the evening.

All this reading about Mickey's Halloween party is making me want to go :cry:

I would love to plan a trip for early October - or the end of September into October! I've been trying to come up with a plan to tell DH :suspect: .

See, he doesn't like Disney too much :Oo: (yes, you read correct). We just got back on May 18th, so as far as he's concerned, were good for a year.

Do the kids/adults get to dress up in costume?

Well, I gave it a shot tonight! While clearing the dinner table I said "Oh, by the way, the tickets are on sale for MNSSHP".

His reply?....."Go for it".  Now, when he says this, he means that I can go....without him :unhappy: .  I'd seriously think about it, but with a 4 yr old and 9 month old....I don't think so.

Won't stop me from trying though ;)
