Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party (or MNSSHP as you may see it) is your chance to be Cinderella visiting the castle. The rest of the year that's limited to children and employees. The park closes early on these dates so that the entire place can be transformered into a Halloween party with decorations, costumed characters, trick-or-treating, and other special entertainment.

Park Admission: While the party doesn't start until 7:00 p.m., your party tickets will allow you into Magic Kingdom at 4:00 p.m. on the night of your ticket. The park will close early that day and be cleared so it does not get you entry during normal operating hours.


Hours: Each night's party runs from 7:00p.m. until 12:00a.m.

Rides and Dining: Most major rides and restaurants are open during the attraction. See special park guides when entering for your event for a complete list.

Special Activities - Trick-or-Treating: Scattered throughout the park are trick-or-treating stations where you (and your kids if you feel like sharing) can load up on candy.

Special Activities - Costumes: Adults are not usually allowed to wear costumes into the parks but this is your chance, you can even attend dressed as Disney characters. Disney does reserve the right to reject specific costumes so do try to keep yours family appropriate and not dangerous to yourself or others.

Special Activities - Boo-to-You Halloween Parade: The sudden appearance of the Headless Horseman streaking down Main Street can only mean one thing, it is time for the Magic Kingdom's special Halloween parade.

Special Activities - Happy HalloWishes Fireworks: Just for the party guests is a special Halloween-themed fireworks display.
