    Planning a visit in October. Having a teenager, preteen and toddler aboard...wondering if we should do MNSSHP

    Boo to you, Christina, and welcome back to planDisney!

    I’m no Madame Leota, but I can say that every year, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a blast! Our family tradition since my older son was a tiny Mouseketeer under 2 years old to hang out with Mickey Mouse and his friends until the wee hours of the night. I’d love to share some of my insights with you about why I think this spooktacular party is great for the entire family. 

    What’s great about Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is that even as a separately ticketed event, Guests can enter Magic Kingdom Park a few hours before the party officially starts. So, after your littlest party member takes a midday nap (I highly recommend that), your crew can maximize your time by heading in earlier. 

    The number one reason to go to this party, in my opinion, is the endless trick-or-treating inside of a Disney theme park. You can pick up an event map at the park’s entrance and create a quick game plan for all of the spots to collect candy. And you can go through the trick-or-treating queues as much as you’d like!

    AN EXTRA GEM: While your little one is sitting out of rides that have a minimum height requirement that she doesn’t meet, this is a great time to pick up candy for both your toddler and carry bags for the older kiddos who are riding. 

    Speaking of rides, some attractions like Space Mountain have Halloween-themed overlays that are exclusive to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Last year, I went to the party with a preteen and my two little ones, and we couldn’t stop laughing while spinning to spooky season songs on the Mad Tea Party. Also, most attractions at this party, in general, have way shorter queues than there are during normal operating hours. So, that alone makes the party worth it for my family!

    If character meet-and-greets aren’t your older kids’ thing, let me tell you…even as a thirty-something-year-old mom, I love saying hello to the super rare characters like meeting ALL of the Seven Dwarfs at Pete’s Silly Sideshow in Storybook Circus at once and Jack and Sally at the Town Square Theatre. The characters change every year, but no matter what, there are always unique experiences. 

    Of course, there are the exclusive fireworks and parade (Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade is my jam!). The opportunities for all of your kiddos to have fun together are endless. My vote is that you should definitely add this experience to your itinerary. Tickets usually go on sale in the springtime, so be on the lookout for news on the Disney Parks Blog. Christina, if you have any other questions about your upcoming Most Magical vacation, please revisit us here at planDisney. Any one of us here would be more than happy to clear up your crystal ball. 

    Magic always,
