Halloween at Disney World with Not So Scary Party and More

Halloween at Disney World Means Mickey’s Not So Scary is BACK!

We love all things Disney. And Disney World is one of my favorite places on Earth. But holidays at Disney are on a whole other level. There’s so much magic in the air during the holidays at Disney World. The start of the holiday season at Disney World begins with Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. This is an epic Halloween event that takes place after hours at Magic Kingdom. In case you don’t know, there are 4 different theme parks at Walt Disney World. Magic Kingdom is the original Park, and is the home of Cinderella’s Castle. And this is the location of the biggest event of Halloween at Disney World!

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Details

This event is the hallmark of the Halloween at Disney World season. Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is also commonly known as MNSSHP. So if you see it written that way, you’re in the know! Fireworks, a parade, Halloween characters, Magic Shots, treats, extra spooky attractions, and more await you at MNSSHP.

Thank you Disney Parks for inviting us to experience MNSSHP. I’m so thankful to get to share it with all of you!

This is a separately ticketed event. It is not included in regular admission to the Park. Guests with regular park admission are required to leave Magic Kingdom by 6 pm. Between 6 pm and 7 pm, Magic Kingdom transforms to Halloween at Disney World party central!

So is MNSSHP worth it?

Let’s be honest. Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is expensive. Is it worth it? That depends on what your goals are for your time at Disney World! If you’re looking for a nighttime visit, a holiday experience, extremely low wait times for attractions, or characters in special costumes, this is the event for you! We visit Walt Disney World a lot. And to us, that means at least once or twice a month. But even for us, who visit Disney World so often, MNSSHP creates memories that last a lifetime. We remember costumes we wore to MNSSHP years and years ago. We remember eating candy at midnight from over a decade ago. So this Party is memorable and totally worth it for our family.

Also, with your event ticket, you can enter Magic Kingdom as early as 4 pm! Although the Halloween party doesn’t officially start until 7 pm, you can maximize your ticket value by arriving early. You can do some non-Halloween activities before start time and then be ready for all things spooky when the clock strikes 7 pm!

Spooky Attractions at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

This year, there are four attractions that have spooky overlays and experiences. There’s not a lot of detail on these out there, so I wanted to share some details on what you’ll find.

Space Mountain

During MNSSHP, Space Mountain takes place in complete darkness! There’s also a different and spookier soundtrack.

Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor

There is a treat trail that takes you directly through the Laugh Floor. This is one of our favorites! Inside the Laugh Floor, the show is continuously taking place, and has a Halloween twist to it. You can sit and watch for as long as you want, or you can keep walking. It’s a fun place to sit and rest for a little bit while you enjoy some Halloween themed laughs.

Mad Tea Party

This classic attraction has a spooky feel! There’s fog, Halloween colors, and special effects.

Pirates of the Carribean

This was our favorite spooky attraction! There are live Pirates scattered throughout the attraction! They are throughout the queue and inside the ride. And they also interact with guests on the attraction. This was such a fun and different way to experience this classic ride. Don’t miss this one!

Should You Wear a Costume to Halloween at Disney World?

During Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, at least half of the guests generally wear costumes, if not more. Guests really go all out! When we visited, we wore matching Disney Halloween t-shirts, but we’ve done costumes many times in the past. The temperate in Orlando is definitely a factor. The temperature in August, even at midnight, is still often in the 80’s. So plan accordingly to not get overheated in a big, bulky costume!

One of our favorite parts of attending MNSSHP is seeing all of the amazing costumes. And this year, my son kept a list of some of his favorites.

Here’s the list of our favorites (and all of these were adults!):

And these were just some of our favorites! This is not nearly a complete list. And you can’t even imagine how deluxe some of these costumes were in detail, size, and beauty. So if you want to dress in costume, you will NOT be alone.

Have a very spooky Halloween season! I hope it includes Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party this year!
