What to Know Before You Go

Before you make your way out to this year’s Halloween party, let’s go through a few of the most common questions.

Should You Take the Little Ones?

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a family event, so kids are welcomed. You can bring your entire family member to catch in on the fun and excitement or you can go solo.

Can I visit the Magic Kingdom on Days When Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is at Night?

Of course, you can. Sometimes, the park isn’t as crowded during the weekdays of the event. While exploring the park, you’ll be asked to leave if you’re not one of the party guests.

How Will They Know I’m a Halloween Party Guest?

If you get to the park around 4 p.m., which is earlier than usual, you can visit stations around the park where you can register for the party.

You’ll give Cast Members your ticket information, and in return, you will get a wristband, so they can easily identify you as a party guest.

Do I Have to Pay More for the Trick-or-Treat Experience?

No! You don’t have to. The trick-or-treating experiences are included with your ticket price.

Do I Have to Dress Up to Trick-or-Treat at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party?

Wearing a costume to trick or treat is not mandatory, but it’s definitely a lot of fun to dress up for the Halloween party!

When Does the Parade and Fireworks Start?

The Boo to You Parade takes place twice during the party. However, the first one which usually runs around 9:15 p.m. attracts a much larger crowd that the second which starts at 11:15 p.m.

The all-new fireworks show, replacing HalloWishes, starts at 10:15 p.m.

It’s one of the most spectacular sights of the event. The fireworks are not only colorful but also more prominent when compared to the typical Disney firework show.

Where Are the Candy Locations?

There are lots of spots where you can trick-or-treat in the park. Some of the top locations for trick-or-treating include Adventureland, Frontierland, Liberty Square, Fantasyland, and Tomorrowland.

How Crowded is the Event?

Over the years, the event has become increasingly popular. The dates closest to Halloween attracts more crowd.

However, it is always less crowded than a typical day at the park

Can you use FastPass at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party?

FastPass+ is not offered during the party since it is a ticketed event with a lower crowd level. I recommend using a FastPass+ reservation before the party.

Once the event starts, go to your favorite characters, do the rides during the first parade, then trick-or-treat throughout the night.
