It's never too early to start planning for Halloween, is it?
Walt Disney World announced this morning the dates for its 2019 Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. And Disney continues to extend the definition of the "Halloween season," beginning this year's party one night earlier and ending it one night later than last year. That means 36 nights for the 2019, which kicks off two and a half months before Halloween itself. Here are this year's dates:
Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is an after-hours, hard-ticket event in the Magic Kingdom. Regular park admission and annual passes are not valid for the event, however, party ticket holders may enter the Magic Kingdom starting at 4pm, three hours before the party starts. The party features special Halloween-themed shows, a parade, and fireworks... as well as unlimited all-ages trick-or-treating.
Disney last year released the dates and tickets for both of its annual holiday parties, including Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, in March. No word yet on the Christmas event, but if you want a clue why Disney is pushing the Halloween party reveal a couple of months earlier this year, here are the two words that explain pretty much everything that Disney is doing with its theme parks this year: Galaxy's Edge.
Disney World's installation of the new Star Wars land is expected to open in the fall, likely sometime after the Halloween party and during the Christmas party run. Disney wants to do whatever it can to keep people who are on the fence abut visiting from staying up there on that fence until Galaxy's Edge opens. An early start to booking for an event that likely will be concluded before the Star Wars land opens might help.Tweet
