**Updated for the 2023 season**
Fall is by far my favorite season and by July, Halloween is already on the brain here. I absolutely love how Walt Disney World goes all out for the holidays and Halloween at Disney happens to be one of our favorite times to visit. If you’re a MNSSHP newbie then the idea of these ticketed events can probably seem overwhelming. I took the time to compile an all inclusive guide, so that you can know all there is not know about joining one of Disney World’s most exciting ticketed events.
What is Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party?
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is a ticketed event that takes place during the fall at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. This means that a separate ticket is required to attend this special event during select nights. Ticket prices start at $109 and can increase based on date for ages 3 & up. Because it is “not-so-scary” the event is appropriate for families and children of all ages. Trick or treating, fireworks, parades and special events are all a part of this epic fall celebration. The 2023 dates for the event are:
August – 11, 15, 18, 22, 25, and 29
September – 1, 4, 8, 10, 12, 15, 17, 19, 22, 24, 26, 28, 29
October – 1, 3, 5, 6, 9, 10, 12, 13, 15, 17, 19, 20, 22, 24, 26, 27, 29, 31
To purchase tickets for the event, you can visit Disney’s website here or call the Disney Reservation Center at (407) 827-7350.
What’s Included With My Ticket?
Since Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is an after hours event, you are required to have an event ticket to stay for the party. You are able to enter Magic Kingdom as early as 4pm on your party day and the event begins at 7pm. There are of course party specific inclusions and perks that make the spooktacular celebration even more fun. This year you can enjoy:
- Trick or treating throughout Magic Kingdom at designated locations throughout the park (allergy friendly treats available).
“Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular” fireworks show hosted by the pumpkin king himself, Jack Skellington.
- Mickey’s Boo to You Halloween Parade featuring your favorite Disney villains down Main Street U.S.A.
- Hocus Pocus Villain Spectacular takes place on stage in front of Cinderella Castle where the Sanderson Sisters throw a spelltacular party.
- Dance with your favorite characters at the Disney Junior Jam at Cosmic Ray’s Cafe.
Plus access to some of your favorite Magic Kingdom attractions. And for the first time in 2023, a virtual queue will be available for the new TRON Lightcycle.
Can you wear costumes?
It would not be Halloween without costumes! Trick or treating is also a part of the festivities as well as a “costume promenade”. Because it is Disney, and a family event there are some costume guidelines. Some of these include:
- No masks that fully cover the face
- Any “wings” must be transparent.
- Costumes must be family friendly.

I think I am more excited now more than ever (HA!) to head to Disney this fall. Have you ever attended one of Disney’s ticketed events? What is your favorite part of Halloween?
