Although going to Walt Disney World is always fun during any time of year, it is even better during the holidays. That being said, planning for your visit is crucial unless you want to be turned away from the gate.

It may be August, but Halloween is in full swing at the Walt Disney World Resort. Magic Kingdom is currently decorated for the spooky season, with Mickey pumpkins lining Main Street, U.S.A., with tons of decor from giant pumpkins to scarecrows greeting Guests as they enter the park. Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party has also begun to a sold-out audience, where Guests can trick or treat, meet rare characters like Jack and Sally from Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas, marvel at the Boo to You parade, and enjoy the high-quality production of Hocus Pocus Villainous Spelltacular, the Cinderella Castle show which brings out the Sanderson Sisters, Dr. Facilier, Oogie Boogie, Maleficent, and more.

Guests can also enjoy Jack Skellington as he introduces Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular firework show that has Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and the gang running through a haunted house.

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is one of the most popular events of the season and one that tends to sell out fast. At the moment, the party is now sold out through September 17, and of course, on Halloween. This means that Guests looking to stay in Magic Kingdom later than 7 p.m. will no longer be able to.

On party nights, Magic Kingdom allows Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Guests to enter at 4:00 p.m. and regular Guests are escorted out of the park by Cast Members by 7:00 p.m.; anyone without a wristband will not be allowed to stay. This means that Guests would have paid a full-priced ticket for Magic Kingdom for a shortened day without Happily Ever After fireworks, as the park will shut down to regular Guests.

For those looking for the entire list of current sold-out Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party dates, they are as follows: August 15, 18, 22, 25, 29, September 1, 4, 8, 10, 12, 15, 17, and October 31. Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party tickets range from $99 per child and $109 per adult to $189 and $199.

Don’t forget to dress up! Adult Guests are encouraged to wear costumes for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party – a practice typically reserved for Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Guests under 14.
