    When will Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party be announced?

    Boo-To-You Michelle!

    Welcome to planDisney!  Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a spooktacular event and a favorite for new and returning guests each year. 

    Michelle, I wish I could channel Madame Leota to see if she has any details yet about the 2024 dates, but it seems we may need to wait just a little bit longer.  Last year, we found out more information about the party and other fun fall offerings around the halfway to Halloween mark, so hopefully we'll hear something real soon!  I recommend keeping a close eye on the Disney Parks Blog and be sure to follow Disney Parks on Instagram or other social media sites for the latest updates.  Tickets for this event are very popular and some nights sell out very quickly!

    While we're waiting, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite tips to help you make the most of Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!

    • Arrive early!  While the happy haunts typically don't start until 7:00 PM, you can usually enter Magic Kingdom Park as early as 4:00 PM.  I like to make a dining reservation for an early dinner in those hours before the party starts.  This allows me to spend all of my time enjoying what the party has to offer and some of the festive snacks without needing to stop and sit down for a meal.  Two of my favorite Table-Service restaurants inside Magic Kingdom Park are The Plaza Restaurant and Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen.
    • Keep an eye out for rare characters throughout the evening.  I especially like taking the opportunity to meet all the villains at the party.  While character experiences change year-to-year, I've had a chance to meet Cruella de Vil, Lotso, Jafar, and the Queen of Hearts. . .just to name a few!  
    • Save the entertainment for later in the evening if you can.  The party is typically the most crowded at the beginning of the night and crowds start to thin a little as the night goes on.  Watching the second parade or one of the later stage shows may mean that you won't find yourself needing to manage crowds as much as you would have earlier in the party.
    • Have fun!  Whether you're attending with other adults, young children, solo, or anywhere in between, this party is the perfect time to embrace your inner child.  Not only are you in Magic Kingdom for the night, but you can dress in costume, enjoy trick-or-treating, dance and sing with your favorite characters, and much, much more.  While ride wait times are sometimes shorter during these special-ticketed events, I often opt not to spend the evening rushing from ride to ride and instead slow down to soak in every magical moment of the party!  
    Michelle, I hope this information helps you plan for a bibbidi-bobbidi-BOOtiful visit to the Walt Disney World Resort and Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!  Remember to stop by planDisney again with any other vacation planning questions in the future.  We promise to treat you to our best tricks!
