    Hi, we have trip planned for Halloween this year. When (roughly) will the dates for MNSSHP be announced? Thanks

    Welcome back to planDisney, Karen! You are asking about my absolute favorite special event at Walt Disney World, and I have enjoyed them all. The parks and resorts decked out in style and the themed treats throughout Walt Disney World call me home this time every year.

    Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party usually runs from early August through Halloween. The 2024 dates have not yet been announced, but I look forward to the unofficial holiday "Halfway to Halloween" (around the end of April) when so many announcements are made. Did you know Disney Parks Blog has a Halloween page? Yep, the Blog knows people like us are awaiting the details and want a one-stop shop for all the news on the holiday at Walt Disney World Resort. You can also find the announcements on Walt Disney World's official Facebook page. It's good to be bad. 

    I love both of these sources of all things Disney to find out party dates and also insights on all the seasonal shenanigans. I adore the ride overlays during Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween party, especially hurling through Space Mountain in complete darkness. I may also get in the spirit early by watching videos of the Boo to You parade before my trip and singing "Boo to You and You and You." I also enjoy the fall flavors in all the parks with so many festive cupcakes and sweets. 

    I hope you have the most spirited trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth during the haunting season. Please come back to planDisney with any other questions. We are happy to have you here and as the Haunted Mansion says, "There is always room for one more."

    Let's Boo This!
