We are more than halfway to Halloween, and Disney celebrated the occasion by sharing a lot of exciting news with Disney fans. Disneyland Resort fans and West Coast residents were informed that Oogie Boogie Bash would be returning for another spook-tacular year. And Disney shared that Walt Disney World Resort would be bringing back the incredibly popular Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Mickey’s Not-So-Scary had been replaced by After Hours: Boo Bash in 2021, but a lot of Guests voiced their disappointment, which Disney apparently heard and went back to what worked in the past.
There will be a lot of fun events happening this year at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Between a ton of great trick-or-treat trails, dance parties, and rare character sightings, you definitely won’t be bored! Disney has also confirmed that Party Guests will be able to ride attractions different from the ones Guests have available during the day! According to information shared by Disney Parks Blog:
Overlays themed for the occasion will return to several popular Magic Kingdom attractions: Space Mountain, Mad Tea Party, Pirates of the Caribbean and Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor.
At this time, Disney has not confirmed what type of overlay each of these attractions will receive. At Disneyland Resort during the Halloween season, Space Mountain received a creepy overlay and becomes Space Mountain: Ghost Galaxy. That overlay theme is pretty popular with Disneyland Guests, so it is possible Disney World’s Space Mountain could receive the same type of overlay.
In addition to ride layovers, Guests attending Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party will be able to join the Sanderson Sisters for their “Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular”, which will be performed on the Magic Kingdom stage. Jack Skellington will also host Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular — an incredible Halloween-themed fireworks show. The popular Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade will also make its return where some of Disney’s most famous villains make their way down Main Street, U.S.A.
This year’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party will also be different from the rest because Disney will still be celebrating its 50th Anniversary at that time. Guests attending this year’s party will have access to special Halloween 50th photo areas, and they will receive a special Halloween-themed 50th Anniversary Celebration pin.
Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party will be held on 37 select nights at Magic Kingdom Park beginning on August 12 and running through October 31. Tickets will range in price from $109 – $199. Tickets to MNSSHP will go on sale to the general public beginning on May 18, but Guests staying at select Disney Resorts can purchase their tickets as early as May 12.
