Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party tickets are on sale NOW for 2018 party dates, and the parties start earlier than ever this year. Prices for the parties vary by date, but start at $75 plus tax per person, when purchased in advance.
The first of this year’s 34 Halloween parties will take place on Friday, August 17. Favorite MNSSHP activities return this year, including he Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular stage show in front of Cinderella Castle featuring the mischievous Sanderson sisters from the hit Disney film “Hocus Pocus,” Mickey’s “Boo-to-You” Halloween Parade and “Happy HalloWishes,” the fall spectacular led by the infamous Disney villains! And don’t forget the Treat Trails, offering trick-or-treat opportunities all around the Magic Kingdom, and unique character meet-and-greet opportunities (like the Seven Dwarfs, Jack Skellington and Sally, and Moana in Adventureland). The Halloween parties also feature some of our favorite “magic shot” photo opportunities. While specific opportunities are not yet known, favorites from last year include a photo with the Headless Horseman (near the park entrance), and one with the “Ghostly Coachman” in front of Haunted Mansion.
While MNSSHP officially starts at 7:00 p.m., guests may enter the Magic Kingdom with a party ticket as early as 4:00 p.m., and guests can make FastPass+ reservations with a party ticket for times between 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. (once the party starts, the FastPass scanning kiosks are used to confirm that guests have a party ticket, but all attractions are ridden standby).
During normal park operations, guests 14 and older may not wear costumes in the park. But Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is an exception to that rule. Walt Disney World has developed special guidelines for MNSSHP as follows:
