halloween party canceled

Walt Disney World Resort has officially canceled all Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party for 2020.

Below is the official update from Disney Parks Blog:

While assessing another fall special event, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, we determined that many of its hallmarks –stage shows, parades and fireworks – are unable to take place in this new, unprecedented environment. With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Additionally, Disney H2O Glow Nights, the nighttime special ticket event at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon, will not take place for the remainder of 2020. Guests who have already bought tickets to these events will be assisted with refunds over the coming weeks.

Keep in mind that if you already purchased a ticket to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party for one of the originally scheduled dates in 2020, you will be able to get a refund. The announcement above also states that Disney H2O Glow Nights at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon will also be canceled for 2020, and refunds will be available for those event tickets as well. Disney stated that they will be providing Guests with more information over the coming weeks.

Guests have been wondering about whether the Halloween event will take place in Magic Kingdom this year for some time ever since Walt Disney World Resort announced that certain experiences would be modified when the theme parks reopen. We know that fireworks and parades won’t be available when Magic Kingdom opens on July 11, and character meet and greets will also not take place in the traditional way that Guests are used to. Because the Halloween party was scheduled to begin in August and run through October, it is not surprising to many for Disney to make the decision to ultimately cancel all Halloween parties in 2020.

Disney also announced changes coming to the 2020 EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, as well as what Guests can expect for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom this year.

We will continue to update Inside the Magic with more information regarding Walt Disney World Resort operations as Disney continues making announcements.
