Every year, Walt Disney World holds two separate ticket events at Magic Kingdom: Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. On September 13th, I was able to attend the Halloween party, and it is definitely worth the extra money. Here’s why:
1. Unlimited Candy
I got a TON of candy. There are multiple candy stations set up throughout the park, and you can go to each one as many times as you want. They give you a small bag to hold your candy, but if you want more, you should probably bring another bag. The bag Disney is handing out to their guests this year features Moana and Beauty and the Beast!
2. Unique Characters
Many characters that rarely appear for meet-and-greets come out. These characters include Jack and Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas; Lotso from Toy Story, Tarzan, Jane, Turk, Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, the Mad Hatter with Alice, Jafar, and the Seven Dwarfs. Mickey and his friends also sport their Halloween gear. I was able to see Jafar and the Dwarfs!
3. Boo to You Parade
During the Halloween party, a special parade that features extremely rare characters is presented as well. Characters from Pirates of the Caribbean, Wreck-It-Ralph, and the Haunted Mansion have their own floats. Also, consider yourself warned: The parade tune is VERY catchy.
BOO. TO YOU.
4. Hocus Pocus Show
The Hocus Pocus Cinderella Castle show features the main characters of Hocus Pocus as your hosts, and they bring along all of Disney’s most famous villains as well. Dr. Facilier, Hades, Jafar, Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Lady Tremaine, Cruella Deville, and the Boogie Man all make appearances.
It’s not just your regular “Wishes.” This show boasts fireworks all the way around the perimeter of the park!
6. Dressing up
Seeing the costumes and dressing up yourself is half of the fun! I went as Rapunzel, and I had so many people calling me “Rapunzel” the whole party! It’s a lot of fun being someone else for a few hours.
Main Street is decorated to the Halloween theme, and Halloween music is played throughout the park. It adds to the theme.
