Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party will not happen this year, Walt Disney World announced this evening.
The annual Magic Kingdom after-hours event becomes the latest programming event canceled due to the pandemic. "We determined that many of its hallmarks – stage shows, parades and fireworks – are unable to take place in this new, unprecedented environment," Disney said of the event in a press release.
Scheduled to start on August 13, Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party was set to run 36 select nights through November 1. Tickets had gone on sale in February, and Disney said that it will be working on refunds in the coming weeks.
Walt Disney World also has canceled the Disney H2O Glow Nights event at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon for remainder of 2020. Disney said tonight that it has not yet made a decision about Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, which has not yet started selling tickets for this fall.
The resort also announced that it is going ahead with a modified version of its Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, kicking it off with the return of the park on July 15.
"A Taste of Epcot International Food & Wine Festival" will run through the fall and feature "over 20" festival marketplaces spread out through the park. The event will feature topiaries and merchandise from the truncated Flower & Garden Festival from this spring, as well. However, the Eat to the Beat Concert Series has been canceled for this year.Tweet
