Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party 2017 review


During Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, ghouls and goblins, princesses and princes and pirates run freely through the Magic Kingdom in the spooky, but not so scary atmosphere.

Upon walking into Main Street, I see that the windows are filled with mannequins of children wearing costumes, whiled other Halloween items dot the window displays. Pumpkin wreaths hang on the lamp posts, and skull lights drape around the shop doors.  

While Disney villain songs echo in the background, I am greeted by the cast–who are also dressed up–handing out maps.  The overall atmosphere is not only really Halloweeny, but is instead spooky in a way that still seems Disney.

The obvious main attraction of the night, The Haunted Mansion, flashes with red lights as fog billows out of the house. Upon getting closer to it, I find that there is a mile-long line that stretches all through Frontierland, and at the front of the line stand Jack and Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas. These two characters only come out during this special Halloween event.  

The rest of the park is lit, and everywhere I go, Halloween songs echo throughout the park. The events that go on within the park range from a Disney Villain parade to a Hocus Pocus show and a dance party. These events go on twice throughout the night, giving attendees enough time to trick or treat and ride rides in between parades and shows.  In the very end, there is a very big fireworks show using Halloween colors.  

The base price to get in is $60, plus a park ticket if you are not an annual pass holder, and the price varies by day, spiking to $120 on Halloween night. The wait times of the rides are low due to limited numbers of tickets. Overall, it is a fun night and very well put together a perfect family outing.
