5 Tips to Get the Most out of Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party

A very popular add on to trips from August to October is  Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.  This special, hard ticketed event at the Magic Kingdom takes place during the fall season.  For more details and an overview of the event, click here.  If you've decided this is a great event to attend and secured tickets with your Kingdom Konsultant agent, here is your next stop to maximize your time to get the most out of the event!  1) Enter Magic Kingdom before the official party start time. The park will close to day guests at 6pm and the party officially starts at 7pm, but with your MNSSHP ticket, you can enter the park at 4pm.  Arrive between 4-6pm to get into the park, secure your wristband and pick up your candy bag.  Grab an early dinner and some photos on Main Street or by the Castle in your party outfits and make a plan for when things kick off at 7.  This way you won't be wasting the valuable party time on these essentials.  2) Prioritize which characters you want

Oogie Boogie Bash

Oogie Boogie Bash at Disney California Adventure has been a hit since it debuted. Tickets are a hot commodity and sell out before the first party of the season. The event runs on select nights in September and October with prices starting at $134 per person in 2023.  Tickets include admission starting at 3pm (party begins at 6pm,) specialty entertainment, treats and your Photopass photos from the night. There’s so much to see and do during the five hours the event runs, there’s no way to do it all so it is important to have a plan. The party really celebrates characters with four ways to see them. 1) Treat Trails are one of the most unique aspects of the party.

There were so many incredible options that we decided to get the “Menu Francois,” or price fix menu, which included an Appetizer, one of five of the Entree options on the regular menu, a dessert and one glass of Chardonna
