    We will be visiting in October, and wanted to know if its worth buying extra tickets for Mickey's Not So Scarey Halloween Party, and if you have to dress up for it?

    Hi Scott,

    MNSSHP is a blast & I truly think its worth the extra $. Everyone (including adults) is encouraged to dress up. Its not required but more people dress festively than not - even if its just an orange t-shirt w/ a pumpkin on it. You'll be boarding rides so you don't want a costume to be bulky & cumbersome. Be sure you wear comfortable footwear.

    MK will be decked out in Halloween decorations. You can enter beginning at 4 p.m. but the festivities do not begin until 7 p.m. When you enter, be sure to pick up a Guide Map for MNSSHP. You'll each be given a Trick-or-Treat bag (you can bring your own). There will be several locations throughout the park where you can T-o-T --- locations will be marked on your MNSSHP Guide Map.

    There will be several character M&G locations which will also be marked on your Guide Map. The characters dress up for Halloween too! PhotoPass Photographers will be located at the M&Gs as well as throughout the park.

    Mickey's "Boo-to-You" Halloween Parade is awesome & is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. & 10:30 p.m. Skip the 1st parade & hit the attractions which will be less crowded. Its easier to get a good spot for the 2nd parade. The Happy HalloWishes fireworks are scheduled for 9:30 p.m. Not every attraction is open during MNSSHP - but the most popular ones will be - check the Guide Map for a list.

    I haven't seen a complete list of events for the 2010 MNSSHP, but last year there were a couple of character dance party locations & a Disney Villains Mix & Mingle in front of Cinderella Castle. Alice & Mad Hatter's Treat Party was along the back path b/t Toontown & Tomorrowland. These will be listed on the Guide Maps.

    Be sure to have your picture taken w/ the Haunted Mansion in the background - perfect setting for Halloween photos. Wishing you magical Halloween memories :-) Allison
