Walt Disney World made the difficult decision this year to not host Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party — a popular after hours event that takes place every year at Magic Kingdom. It wasn’t long ago Disney World released the following statement:

With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.
