    We are looking at 2025 bookings, we are wanting to see Magic Kingdom both with and without Halloween decorations and do a MNSSHP. Would arriving 28th/29th July and leaving around 11th/12th Auguat cover all of this?

    Hey, howdy, hey Annabel, and welcome back to planDisney. I am so glad to see you here with another enchanting question about one of my favorite times of the year at Magic Kingdom Park: Halloween. Halloween celebrations begin in the summer and usually complete by October 31 or November 1.

    It is very possible that you will be visiting when Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party nights begin. Decorations along Main Street, U.S.A., start to show up about a week before the first party with more and more added every night. The first parties in 2022 and 2023 were during the end of the second weekend in August so you would likely see most of the decorations by the end of your holiday in 2025. If you really want to do a Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party then you may need you plan to arrive one week later, at the beginning of August, to see Magic Kingdom Park with and without Halloween decorations.

    planDisney Pro Tip: Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog in April and May of 2024 to see if the Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party dates start sooner than the second weekend in August. If so then your dates may be perfect. Also, be sure to buy your Special Event Ticket for the party as soon as possible. The parties this year sold out quickly.

    Annabel, it has been a pleasure to help you. Please let me know directly if you have any follow-up questions. 

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
