A Guide to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party

The Walt Disney World Resort knows how to celebrate a holiday and Halloween-time is no exception. One special event only available during the Halloween season is Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom. Celebrate the frightfully fun season in your favorite costume with a special Halloween-time fireworks show, parade, stage shows, dance parties, trick-or-treating throughout the Magic Kingdom and more! This special event takes place on select nights from mid-August until November 1st. Know Before You Go In 2023, Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party will take place on 38 select nights from August 11th through November 1st, and ticket prices vary by date. In 2023, prices ranged from $109-$199 per guest ages 10 and up and $99-$189 for guests ages 3-9, excluding tax.

Oogie Boogie Bash

Halloween at Disneyland

The Disneyland Resort in California really does the spooky season right in my opinion. Starting September 1st both parks and Downtown Disney transform into a fall and spooky paradise.

While Oogie Boogie Bash is a separately ticketed event, you can still get plenty of Halloween festivities without attending the party.  Let’s start with Disneyland Park .

There’s seasonal treats at numerous locations to try, but that’s not all. My personal favorite thing (and the queue length suggests it is a favorite for many) is the Haunted Mansion Holiday overlay which inserts The Nightmare Before Christmas into the classic attraction.    Disney California Adventure Park  gets even more into spooky season, w
