Summer is almost over, and Autumn is just around the corner. Fall has already arrived in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, though!
Today, we’ll take a look at the decorations, but first let’s talk about one of the mains attraction of the fall season: Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party!
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party will run from September 15th through November 1st on select dates this year, and tickets are $68 for guests over 10 years of age and $63 for children ages three to nine. This is a hard-ticket event, which means you will need to purchase a separate ticket to attend. You don’t have to have regular park admission on the day of the party, but if you don’t you won’t be allowed into the park until 4 PM. The festivities begin at 7 PM and goes until midnight.
Disney included many familiar events guests love, but they added a few new things this year. As always, guests of all ages can dress up in their best not-so-scary Halloween costume and trick or treat in the park for special candies and sweets. The Boo-To-You Halloween parade, led by the Headless Horseman features themed floats and Disney Characters in their own Halloween costumes! There is also a special fireworks show: Happy HalloWishes. Disney Villains, including Cruella de Vil, Jafar, and Oogie Boogie among others, will take over Cinderella Castle with creepy colors and spooky tunes.
New this year is the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular in which the Sanderson Sisters from Disney’s popular Halloween movie Hocus Pocus cast a spell on everyone in Magic Kingdom. They’re joined by other villains including Dr. Facilier and Maleficent.
Disney also added a Happy HalloWishes Dessert Premium Package that will give guests exclusive views of Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade (8:35 PM) from the Town Square Flag Pole as well as HalloWishes, which begins at 10 PM, from the Tomorrowland Terrace. For an extra fee ($69 for adults 10+ and $39 for children 3-9), you can add this package to your event ticket and enjoy Halloween-themed cupcakes, chocolate-dipped strawberries, chocolate mousse, ice cream, fruits, and cheeses while you sip on sparkling cider, lemonade, hot chocolate, coffee, or tea.
You should be aware that these parades, shows, and character meet and greets are only available during this party and on exclusive dates. If you want to be part of the spooky fun, you won’t want to miss this event! If saving money is important, consider forgoing you daily park ticket and only attend this event. Although some of the most popular attractions may still see long wait times, most rides will require little to no waiting since only a limited number of tickets will be sold for each event.
Main Street USA is decorated just in time for the party with festive Fall decorations including appropriately colored leaves and Mickey-shaped pumpkins. You’ll really get that hometown feel!
Even the Main Street Trolley Show performers have gotten a makeover. Their fall-themed costumes match the décor well and give guests a real feel of Autumn.
Baseball is an All-American sport, so it’s appropriate that a baseball-themed scarecrow welcome guests to Main Street.
Casey’s Corner, which serves up delicious, all-American, quick-service food, has beautiful Fall bunting on the front of the building along with Fall leaves and carved pumpkins.
Look at these beautiful Fall wreaths. It’s like something your mom would hang on the front door about this time of year!
City Hall is classically decorated. Do you feel like you’re back in your own hometown?
The Emporium is beautiful with the columns wrapped in Fall leaves and topped with bunting. The popular store still has all of the classic Disney souvenirs you would expect despite its Fall décor. See the Castle in the distance? What a beautiful sight!
Don’t worry, though! You can find plenty of Disney-themed Halloween décor for your home like this whimsical Mickey pumpkin jar!
Do you need to satisfy your sweet tooth? You’ll find plenty of Disney Halloween cookies like these Mickey pumpkin and Jack Skellington cookies.
These pumpkins on the railroad bridge above the exit bids you farewell. As Mickey would say, “See Ya Real Soon!”
