Autumn is a spectacular (and innocently spooky) time at Walt Disney World Resort, marked by festivals, special events and nonstop excitement leading up to the holidays. On land and sea, Disney guests will find unrivaled excitement for festive family fun!
Here’s a look at the exciting autumnal happenings at Walt Disney World Resort and beyond:
A Spooktacular Celebration at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party
This fall, the Magic Kingdom will be transformed into a home for happy haunts at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. This special ticket event returns this year for 25 nights of boo-tiful festivities at Magic Kingdom park. Guests are invited to dress up in favorite Halloween costumes for this “not-so-scary” occasion, where there is an assortment of trick-or-treat sweets waiting to be found.
Entertainment features the twice-nightly Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade, a bone-rattling spectacle featuring Disney characters donning Halloween costumes. Also, for the first time ever, the mischievous Sanderson Sisters from Disney’s Hocus Pocus will throw an evil Halloween party for the Hocus Pocus Villain Spectacular. This new show is a not-to-be-missed Halloween production and features appearances by Dr. Facilier, Oogie Boogie, Maleficent and other great Disney villains, along with dancers, projections and special effects. For the fiendish finale, Happy HalloWishes, a green and orange fireworks display complete with Disney villains, will creep across the sky.
In addition to trick-or-treating, meet and greets with Disney characters in their festive Halloween costumes and Halloween treats and eats unique to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party are available throughout the evening. For guests’ ghostly pleasure, a barbershop quartet of dead cowboys also will be serenading Frontierland with their chilling musical arrangements. Listen if you dare!
Party dates are September: 15, 18, 20, 22, 25 and 27; October: 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 9, 12, 13, 15, 16, 18, 20, 22, 23, 25, 27, 29, 31; November: 1. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party webpage.
