Walt Disney World Resort
Top Tips for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party 2023
April 20, 2023

UPDATED APRIL 20, 2023. Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party returns to Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom for spirited fun for all ages. If you’re looking for Disneyland Resort’s most similar equivalent, please see our article on attending Oogie Boogie Bash at California Adventure Park.

Every year in August, September and October, guests can come dressed up in costume for special activities only offered during this after-hours event.

Magic Kingdom is one of the four parks of the Walt Disney World Resort and is known as being the main “castle park” and is the host of other exclusive seasonal events like Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.

This fall, the best way to experience all the Halloween celebrations is by getting your tickets to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, often abbreviated as MNSSHP.

You’ll enjoy trick or treating, visiting favorite Disney characters in Halloween costumes, special entertainment and more.

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party is an annual event perfect for families, couples, friend trips, and everyone in between!

One of the main things guests love to do is dress up in costume and trick or treat their way through Magic Kingdom. Costumes and trick or treating are encouraged for all ages and everyone will enjoy the magic of being a kid again during this night at Walt Disney World. Candy, snacks, characters, attractions and more keep families and friends coming back year after year for more fun at MNSSHP.

You'll also find the can’t-miss attractions at Magic Kingdom during your night of fun. We suggest devoting one full day to Magic Kingdom to experience the everyday magic of the theme park and then come back a second time for the party and watch it transform!

Jack’s ghost dog, Zero, then flies off carrying everyone along on a trick-or-treating adventure, where four friends – Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy – find themselves drawn into a mysterious haunted house. Their journey takes them from one room of the house to another, encountering dancing skeletons, waltzing ghosts and a whole series of troublemaking Disney villains.”
