LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party happens at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom park on select nights until November 1, and during this after-hours event families are encouraged to put on their favorite costumes to spend the evening collecting candies, experiencing park thrills, and watching eerie entertainment with Disney Characters that go bump in the night.
This year more new additions than ever are joining the line-up of amazing event exclusive offerings!
‘Disney's Not So Spooky Spectacular'
The new "Disney's Not So Spooky Spectacular" lights the night sky during the witching season in a spellbinding display playing across the heavens.
As host of the spectacle, Jack Skellington from Tim Burton's "The Nightmare Before Christmas" spins a not-so-scary tale about how anything can happen on Halloween night.
Jack's ghost dog, Zero, brings everyone along on a trick-or-treating adventure where four friends – Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy and Donald Duck – find themselves drawn into a haunted house. Encounters with dancing skeletons, waltzing ghosts and wickedly troublemaking Disney villains make for a hair-raising adventure. It all comes to life with state-of-the-art projection effects, lasers, lighting and dazzling fireworks.
‘Mickey's Boo-To-You Halloween Parade'
The galloping Headless Horseman fronts "Mickey's Boo-To-You Halloween Parade," setting the stage for spooktacular fun throughout Magic Kingdom.
The parade opens with a flurry of beloved Disney friends, including Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse in new Halloween costumes.
The spectral Bride from The Haunted Mansion appears in the parade this year alongside waltzing spirits and those famous Hitchhiking Ghosts.
Pixar pals join the fun, too, including The Incredibles and designer extraordinaire Edna Mode, as well as Buzz Lightyear and alien explorers on a planetary playset float inspired by Pixar's Toy Story films.
Wreck-It-Ralph, Vanellope von Schweetz and the girls from Sugar Rush make sure there's plenty of candy to go around during the parade.
In addition, pirates sail in from Adventureland, Clarabelle Cow hosts a square dance during a Frontierland hoedown and a wicked assortment of Disney villains reigns over a Fantasyland-inspired grand finale.
Cruella's Halloween Hide-a-Way at Tony's Town Square Restaurant
As only she can, host Cruella de Vil invites guests to mix and mingle with her impossibly hip circle of friends during Cruella's Halloween Hide-a-Way at Tony's Town Square Restaurant.
This new reservations-only social promises a fun, festive atmosphere with themed music and décor matched with divine hors d'oeuvres, sweets and drinks (including beer and wine).
Guests can come and go as they please throughout the night and enjoy prime parade-viewing spot reserved just for them. The party keeps rollin' until 12:30 a.m.
Cruella's Halloween Hide-a-Way ($99 per person, plus tax) is available only during Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.
Reservations are required and can be made at Disneyworld.com or by calling Disney Dining at (407) 939-3463.
New Candy Spot
New this year, when guests follow a treat trail into the Monster World at Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor, they'll interact with a comic entourage of monsters who are learning about the curious human-world holiday called Halloween.
Special Attraction Overlays
Among many popular park attractions available to roaming ghosts and goblins, Space Mountain turns out the lights, going completely dark and hurtling guests through the blackness of deep space to the sounds of a new hard-rockin' soundtrack.
Then guests embarking on Pirates of the Caribbean will encounter a crew of live pirates engaged in a whole new swashbuckling quest for treasure.
And finally at the Mad Tea Party, special lighting and music enhance the nighttime experience to bring out the maddest hatter in everyone.
New Dance Parties
The new DescenDANCE Party takes the stage at Cosmic Ray's Starlight Café in Tomorrowland, where guests can groove to a beat inspired by the "Descendants" Disney Channel movies.
For young park goers, the Storybook Circus Disney Junior Jam in Fantasyland is the place to party with favorite Disney Junior characters like Doc McStuffins, Timon and Vampirina. New this year, Nancy Clancy from the hit Disney Junior series "Fancy Nancy" joins the fun.
