    Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Activities


    Guests are given trick-or-treat bags to be used at the candy stations found throughout the Magic Kingdom. Locations will be indicated on the event map and will be listed below once they're revealed. Some cast members will give more than others, but there's no limit to how many times you can go back to the same location for more.

    Special Dietary Needs Including Allergies

    Guests with food allergies can get a special teal treat bag that will designate them as having an allergy (teal is the color that represents food allergy awareness). These bags can be picked up at any of the trick-or-treat locations. When you trick-or-treat with your teal bag, cast members will give you a teal token at each treat station. Later on, you can redeem your teal tokens at the allergy-friendly centers (marked on the event map) to receive your special treats!

    Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Entertainment

    Disney's Not-So-Spooky Spectacular Fireworks


    “Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular” is hosted by none other than Jack Skellington from Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas. This show includes state-of-the-art projection effects, lasers, lighting, and fireworks. Fireworks are only presented once per evening.

    “Jack has come to tell a not-so-scary story about how anything can happen on Halloween night. Jack’s ghost dog, Zero, then flies off carrying everyone along on a trick-or-treating adventure, where four friends – Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy – find themselves drawn into a mysterious haunted house. Their journey takes them from one room of the house to another, encountering dancing skeletons, waltzing ghosts and a whole series of troublemaking Disney villains.”

    Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular


    The Sanderson Sisters (Winifred, Mary and Sarah) from Disney's film Hocus Pocus, return to the mortal world each Halloween season for one night. The three sisters take over the Magic Kingdom to throw the "best, evil Halloween party this side of the graveyard." Dr. Facilier, Oogie Boogie, Maleficent, and other great Disney villains help the sisters create the Hocus Pocus Party Potion to cast a spell on all the partygoers. Additionally, the show will feature dancers, projections, and other special effects.

    Mickey's Boo-to-You Halloween Parade


    Come see your favorite characters dressed up in their Halloween costumes! The floats feature Disney Villains as well as your beloved Disney friends. The parade begins with an entrance from the Headless Horseman who slowly trots through the parade route. New for 2023, partygoers can see Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck, and Clarabelle Cow dressed as the Sanderson Sisters from Disney’s Hocus Pocus in Mickey’s “Boo-To-You” Halloween Parade.

    TIP: If any inclement weather is either near or taking place, the Headless Horseman will not appear.

    Mickey’s Boo-to-You Halloween Parade features event-exclusive characters, such as Dr. Facilier, Captain Barbosa, Oogie Boogie, the three hyenas from The Lion King – Shenzi, Banzai, and Ed – plus the three Hitchhiking Ghosts from The Haunted Mansion - the Haunted Mansion float is incredible! This parade is not-to-be-missed!
