It’s that time of year again, and Walt Disney World is ready! The Magic Kingdom will transform into Fall decorations, and you’ll see pumpkins in every shape and size!
One of my favorite Fall events taking place is at The Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World is Mickey’s Not-So- Scary Halloween party.
Parties will take place from 7 p.m. – midnight on September 10, 13, 17, 20, 24, 27 & 29; October 3, 4, 6, 10, 11, 14, 17, 18, 20, 22, 24, 25, 27, 29 and 31; and November 1. Advanced ticket prices are available on certain nights. Be warned that some dates may sell out so plan accordingly.
There are several events taking place at the party this year:
Two returning party favorites are the Boo-to-You Halloween parade, which features the Headless Horseman, Disney characters in Halloween regalia and the ghostly inhabitants of The Haunted Mansion. The Grave Diggers are AWESOME. Another is the Happy HalloWishes fireworks spectacular, which illuminates the park. These two fun events are not to be missed!!
All new this year is Jack Skellington and Sally (from Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas”) at Magic Kingdom Park. Look for the Pumpkin King and his love in the Town Square area of Main Street, U.S.A. This would be one of my kid’s favorite sightings! I’ve been informed we will wait in line to meet Jack and Sally regardless of how long the wait is. I guess there’s nothing like Jack!
Phineas and Ferb will also take charge of the Creepa Crew this year. This group gets parade-goers warmed up for fun on Main Street, U.S.A., while they wait for the parade’s arrival. Love me some Ferb!!
Over in Tomorrowland, “Monsters, Inc.,” scarers Mike and Sulley will host their own Monstrous Scream-O-Ween Ball dance party on the Rockettower Plaza Stage. The stage has been completely transformed for this “monstrous” event.
Trick-or-treating will also be enhanced this year with more than 220 tons (TONS!!) of candy on order. In addition to trick-or-treat stations, there will also be two treat trails–pathways that you trick-or-treat through that offer multiple candy stops along the way. Running around the Magic Kingdom with a bag full of candy… does life get any better? It brings out the kid in me, for sure!
Many years ago, we attended a MNSSHP and my family “happily and willingly” dressed in matching shirts. 😉 Justin was 14 at the time and he was a great sport about it. Maybe not such a willing candidate, but he did it for me. I’m not sure which will embarrass him more…the fact that he did it back then or the part of me posting this today!! Kristin was so sweet to wear the shirt…and maybe actually like it? Jeremy was Fireman Mickey.
I’m sure you wouldn’t want to miss the chance to embarrass your family in those matching t-shirts–er, hmmm–I mean miss the FUN. So if you are going to WDW this Fall, be sure to plan to attend this Not-So- Scary event.
Oh, and I almost forgot- BOO TO YOU!!!
