    Hello! When are the dates for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party usually announced? We will be visiting from October 28th to November 4th. Also, is there a day of the week that would be the least crowded that close to Halloween?

    Trick-or-Treat Noelle! 

    Thank you for sending in a question about my favorite special event, Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom Park! This Spooktacular annual celebration is a definite "Must-Do" for my family. Where else can you dress up like your favorite Disney character, go Trick-or-Treating in the Park, see the Headless Horseman ride down an eerie Main Street, and have a face-to-face encounter with Jack Skellington himself?

    I am happy to confirm that dates and preliminary details regarding this year's parties have just been released on the Disney Parks Blog. As you will see, there are currently several Party dates which will be taking place during your trip, including October 29 and 31 and November 1. As I expect crowds will be higher on October 29 and 31, I would be inclined to recommend that you aim to attend on November 1, thereby further extending your Halloween celebrations. Tickets will be available for purchase in early May.

    Upon your arrival at the Party, be sure to pick up a special event map which will show you the designated Trick-Or-Treat and Disney Character Meet and Greet locations and outline the entertainment schedule for the evening. You definitely won't want to miss the Happy HalloWishes Fireworks Show! Also, if you are planning to dress in costume for this event (which I HIGHLY recommend), be sure to review the Costume Guidelines in advance.

    Wishing you an unforgettable Disney Halloween celebration!
