We didn’t miss our chance to collect candies, sweets and goosebumpingly yummy treats from 2017 Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP)! Since this event is “not-so-scary,” that means children of every age can enjoy the fun! Children under the age of 3 years old — no tickets needed!
What is Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party?
It’s basically Halloween–with Disney magic. Park guests, adult and children, can go trick-and-treating around the Magic Kingdom. Yes, costumes are allowed to be worn with some exceptions and rules. You also get to meet and greet Disney characters who are usually not available in regular days…yes, like the villains!
They have exclusive parades, fireworks show and activities for this special event.
When did the happiest haunting happen?
Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party for 2017 took place from 7:00 PM until 12:00 Midnight on the following dates:

Our family trip to Disney World fell within these dates so we were definitely attending. I purchased our tickets from Disney’s site and it was automatically linked to our My Disney Experience (MDE) account. We also added the “Will Call” option to pick up our tickets in the resort before the event as a back-up.
Is it Free?
You have to buy separate tickets to attend the event. For this year, the prices start at $74.00 per adult and $69.00 per child over 3. The price increases to as high as $115.00 per adult and $110.00 per child over 3 as it gets closer to the real Halloween dates late October.
They are available online with options to pay for it with your debit/credit cards, Disney gift cards, reward cards, or Disney Vacation account. You can immediately download and print your tickets if you have an Adobe PDF reader. Alternatively, you can opt for “Will Call” which allows you to pick it up in the park or resort. Disney can also mail the tickets to you via US Postal Service. All of these options are available at no extra charge. If you do want it delivered earlier via FedEx domestically or internationally, there is a $15.00 charge.
This would be the first Halloween trick or treating I will do with my family. For 2016, I worked for the entire Halloween week. The year prior to that, our kid was sick and we spent trick-and-treating in the hospital.
We did this trip to celebrate our son’s 3rd birthday. I feel excited and jealous at the same time for my son.
I am now brainstorming for costume ideas for the entire family.
How about you? Are you attending this year’s Halloween event? Will you or your family be sporting costumes?
