As you arrive at the Magic Kingdom, you’ll notice that there are 12 different pumpkins nestled in the Mickey Mouse floral bed.
Entering Main Street, U.S.A., there are 8 friendly scarecrows located around the flagpole, ready for trick-or-treating!
One of the most iconic Halloween decorations at the Magic Kingdom is the Mickey Mouse pumpkin wreath. The diameter of each wreath is approximately 26 inches. There are over 50 wreaths hung in the kingdom during Halloween.
Walking down Main Street U.S.A, there are 190 individual pumpkins adorning the buildings and windows with many of them themed to their location.
More than 23,100 feet or about 4.25 miles of cable is installed for special lighting and sound effects for the party’s Halloween evening entertainment.
The MNSSHP features a total of 13 trick-or-treat stations spread throughout the Magic Kingdom. Over the four months of party nights, cast members will hand out over 361 tons of candy! That’s 722,000 lbs.!! They bring it in by the truckload on party nights!
The trick-or-treating barrels contain over 40 different kinds of brand-name candies, including Skittles, M&Ms, Snickers, Kit Kats, Lifesavers….Guests can – and do – ask for unlimited treats.
In 2014, there were only 26 party nights in September – October.
In 2019, there are 36 party nights spread out over August – September – October – November!
The first Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party was held in 1995. The first party was held on just one night and cost $16.95 for a ticket. This year, you can buy an unlimited MNSSHP pass good for 35 of the 36 party nights (not Halloween night!) for $299.
