    I'm trying to plan a trip for my son's 10 birthday and noticed that the Not So Scary Halloween Party is sold out on Halloween which is his birthday. Is there any way for me to get tickets?

    Hello Rachel! The “gift of Disney” for a 10th birthday is a great way to celebrate your son’s special day! My family has spent many birthday celebrations at the Walt Disney World Resort! Those visits have provided some of our most memorable birthdays! I love your idea! So, let’s have some fun exploring your options!

    Halloween night is typically one of the first nights to sell out for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. At this point, it is unlikely that any additional tickets will be released. Of course, you are welcome to keep an eye on the Walt Disney World Resort website to see if more tickets are released, but I don’t ever recall that occurring in the many years that I’ve been attending the frightfully festive fall event. Once a holiday party is sold-out, it usually remains sold-out. 

    That being said, depending upon your travel dates, there is still availability for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party on both October 29, 2023 and November 1, 2023! Perhaps you can surprise your son on his birthday by sharing the news with him that he’ll be attending the party the next night. That would make for an awesome birthday present!

    Another little surprise that you can provide your son is a Walt Disney World Resort birthday button. These buttons are available at either your Walt Disney World Resort hotel or at any of the parks through the Guest Relations office. Buttons are complimentary! Consider it “Mickey’s gift” to your son!

    Rachel, if you choose to pass on Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party due to the date, you might consider booking a special birthday Disney Dining reservation for your son’s birthday! Some of our favorites over the years for birthdays have been Be Our Guest Restaurant, Cape May Cafe, Chef Mickey’s, Tusker House Restaurant, and Topolino’s Terrace (for the character breakfast)! All of these would make for a very memorable birthday! Also, when making a Disney Dining reservation at select restaurants, you can order a special cake to be delivered to your table for dessert! You can choose that option when making your reservation.

    Best wishes to your son for a wonderful birthday at the Walt Disney World Resort! Come on back to planDisney if you have any other questions!

    Happy Planning!
