3 Tips for Disney's Not So Scary Halloween Party

Monday, October 27, 2014
We recently made our first trip to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party and I think it is safe to say, we will be back! In case you do not know about this super event, the park is open to guests who purchase a separate ticket. There are trick or treat lines throughout the park (clearly marked, too,) a special fireworks show and a very cool Halloween parade. This special event was worth every penny!

3 Tips to Know Before You Go! 

1. Arrive early. The official time is 7:00 PM-12:00 AM, but you can arrive as early as 5:00. We walked through the gate at 6:00 and it was perfect! 

2. Candy bags are provided but you might want to bring your own! Let's just say, we had to replace a bag or two that night! Luckily, there were no candy losses. There are PLENTY of bags available to purchase, too.

3. Everything closes at 12:00, so if you plan on shopping, shop early. We missed the boat on that one....might be a good thing
Do you know what we are? :)
We went on a Friday night and a sold out night, so I expected a pretty big crowd. I was pleasantly surprised! I mean, there were lots of people, but the only line we waited in was for Mine Train. This was the only ride on T's MUST RIDE list. The wait was 30 minutes and he wanted to wait again. (Lots of love for the Mine Train!) The cast member kindly explained that the line moves faster because there are no fast passes at special events. It was great! We rode everything we wanted to ride and then some!

We ate at Casey's (hot dogs and fries) for dinner and watched most of the special Halloween parade. It was awesome, just like our evening. 

Another highlight, seeing people in their costumes. There were kids, parents, grandparents, couples, groups of teenagers, etc and everyone was dressed in their costume or Halloween gear. It really was one big, family party. It was well, very Disney!

Our kids are 5 and 9, but if your lovelies are a little younger, check out this post to convince yourself to take a toddler or two!

Here's a short slideshow with a few highlights of our evening! See you next October (if not sooner) Mickey!
