On Friday I went to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. This is the second year I have gone and it is always so much fun. I am an annual pass holder so I go to Disney World pretty often. The Halloween party is a Hard Ticketed Event, meaning that the tickets are sold separately and there is only a certain amount of tickets sold. Because of this there are a lot less people in the park. The event starts at 6 p.m but people that only bought the ticket for the event can get into the park at 4 p.m and enjoy the park for a couple of hours before the event begins.
Once the event begins there are several special shows that can be watched. You can also go Trick-or-Treating around the park and get as much candy as you want. There are also special characters that you can get pictures with. Characters like Jack and Sally, the Queen of Hearts and Tarzan are around the park.
There is a show at Cinderella’s Castle called the Hocus Pocus show. It is based off of the movie Hocus Pocus. It has the three witch sisters and many other Disney villains like Oogie Boogie, Maleficent and Hades. It is a very fun show to watch, it is one of my favorite shows at Disney world. Another fun event at the castle is the HolloWishes fireworks. One thing Disney is known for is their firework shows and they are a spectacular Halloween fireworks show. It show cases many villainous songs, and one of my favorite Disney songs, Grim Grinning Ghosts from the Haunted Mansion ride.
There are also special things that happen to some of the rides around Magic Kingdom. The Pirates of the Caribbean has actually pirates throughout the queue and on the ride. All of the lights are turned off on Space Mountain and the soundtrack changes to rock music, this was one of my favorites. Another great thing about the part is the special food items and merchandise you can get during the event. There are Halloween themed threats throughout the park like Mickey Pumpkin Cheese cake and candy corn ice cream.
At the very end of the event there is a Parade, another thing Disney is known for. It is called the Boo-to-You Parade. There are many characters like Mickey, Minnie, and Donald dressed up in there Halloween outfits and many characters you don’t typically get to see on a regular park day, like the villains and Wreck-it-Ralph.
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is one of my favorite events at Disney world and I look forward to going every year. I already love Halloween and going to this event gets me in the Halloween Spirit.
