What's more magical than a night of trickery and treats and transformation? How about an entire season of spooktacular Halloween events in Orlando hosted by the mouse who holds the key to the most magical place on earth? I'm referring to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, of course. It's spirited, it's safe, it's not at all scary for little ones, and it's back!
Experience The Magic Of Disney With Halloween In Orlando
On select nights at 7 pm from August 17th to October 31st, the Magic Kingdom will only be open to those goblins and ghouls who purchase tickets to the Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party 2018. And once the gates of Cinderella’s castle have been closed for the evening, and the Disney spirits awakened, party-goers are free to travel from land to land for candy, treats, snacks, and more for a spooktacular Halloween in Orlando. Trick-or-treaters with food allergies need not beware, when you enter make sure to pick up your teal treat bag–the official color for food allergy awareness–from the Allergy-Friendly Centers at Town Square Theater and Heritage House or notify a cast member of your allergies and they’ll help you get ahold of a bag. At each station, you’ll be given a teal treat token which can be redeemed at the Allergy-Friendly Centers for special treats.
At varying times through the night, you can catch the Hocus Pocus Villain Spectacular show on Main Street featuring the Sanderson Sisters themselves with special appearances of Disney villains. In Frontierland, you’ll find the Cadaver Dans Barbershop Quartet and you’ll howl with laughter at their “dead pan” humor. Mickey’s parade will say a Happy Halloween “Boo-To-You” and the fireworks show will send magical HalloWishes into the night sky.
Keep your eye out for some familiar spooky faces like Jack Skellington and Sally, Jack Sparrow, Jafar, Cruella DeVille, the Queen of Hearts with the Tweedles, Alice, and the Mad Hatter or the Snow Queen–all make regular appearances. Other popular characters are Snow White and her dwarves, Belle, Ariel, Merida, Cinderella, Rapunzel, Tiana, Pooh and the gang, and you can’t miss Minnie, Daisy, Donald, Goofy, and Mickey in their Halloween costumes.
If you're planning on spending your Halloween in Orlando at Disney for some kid friendly Halloween fun in Orlando, these villainous nights of entertainment do sell out, so buying your tickets now is recommended.
