Disney World is known for its spectacular events and attractions.

Walt Disney World Resort guests head to Disney for a once-in-a-lifetime experience, which includes exclusive access to iconic Disney characters, parades, fireworks displays, and behind-the-scenes glimpses into the making of Disney magic.

Walt Disney World Resort is home to four theme parks: Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Each Disney World park includes different attractions, shows, and featured lands. Disney parks tend to be busier since Disney World is a popular tourist location at certain times of the year.

Several factors contribute to the increase in crowds during specific months. One major reason Disney World tends to be busier is when school holidays happen, like spring break, summer vacation, and winter break. These school breaks attract families to the parks, leading to higher attendance. Another reason Disney World sees more guests is when Disney World hosts various special events, such as EPCOT’s International Food and Wine Festival or Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, Mickey’s Christmas Party, and After-Hour Events.

Disney guests planning a vacation for a Disney event head for the smaller crowds, special meet and greet characters, parades and shows. During Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, guests can meet Mickey and Minnie and the gang in spooky Halloween costumes. Guests also have the opportunity to trick-or-treat alongside beloved Disney characters and get some major treats along the way. Disney World guests can stop and watch the Boo to You parade. Another popular meet and greet is Jack and Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas.

Since Disney events are limited due to the number of tickets Disney sells, some guests may not be able to snag tickets. Disney events tend to be popular and sell out fast, so guests planning to spend holidays at Disney should purchase tickets soon.

Walt Disney World guests who were hoping to make it to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party hopefully have already purchased their tickets. Tickets for the beloved and popular Halloween Party have officially sold out. This event runs from August 11 to November 1, 2023. All dates have sold out, except November 1. Scott Gustin tweeted about this popular event selling out.

Disney World guests still hoping to experience Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party should go ahead before this event sells out for good, as ticket sales have already been halted for all other dates.

Information that guests planning to attend Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party need to know includes:

  1. Guests will need a separate ticket for the event.
  2. Guests will be allowed to wear costumes; however, Disney World’s official website outlines the permitted outfit guidelines.
  3. Guests will not require a theme park reservation.
  4. Magic Kingdom will close its gates at 6:00 p.m., and Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party will commence at 7:00 p.m. and continue until midnight.
  5. Disney World guests attending this event will have the opportunity to enter Magic Kingdom park as early as 4:00 p.m.
