Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party reviews
Written by Robert Niles
A yearly event at Magic Kingdom where you're invited to dress up and trick or treat in the park. There's Happyhallo Wishes (a special version of Wishes fireworks) and Mickey's Boo to You Parade. Almost all rides are open during the event with little or no wait. MNSSHP is a hard-ticket event requiring separate admission. Helpful tip: Avoid sold-out nights by selecting an evening in September or early October.
This Is the best haloween event lots of candy and treats also you don't get candy at hhn or hos so get your bags and trick or treat - Manny Rodriguez
I love the Hallowishes fireworks and I LOVE the candy - I got 4 bags full this year! (Tip: hold out two bags at each station. They have to fill up because you could be holding a child's.) There are also special character appearances if that's your thing and the rides are supposedly short waits but I spend the whole event collecting candy except for watching the parade (headless horseman!) and fireworks. - Amy Smith
We have gone to the MNSSHP for the past 5 years. We usually visit in early September however this year we waited until 09/30 to go. This was a mistake. The Party tickets were surprisingly sold out for the night's event and it definitely showed in relation to the crowd. The staff seemed stressed and the crowds were entirely too heavy for a hard ticket event. Eventhough I realize it is out of their control I feel like some of the foot traffic congestion problems were due to the Fantasyland expansion blocking off the back area of the park. The former Trick or Treating pathway between Mickeys Toon Town and Space Mountain used to be the easiest way to collect candy. Even with this in mind I still enjoyed the event. We look forward to it all year. Next year I will definitely move our visit back to the beginning of September. - Crystal A
