We’ll see the return of popular favorites, such as “Hocus Pocus Villain Spectacular” stage show in front of Cinderella Castle, Mickey’s “Boo-to-You!” parade down Main Street, and “Happy HalloWishes!” led by everyone’s favorite villains.
Tickets for this Halloween spectacular start at $75 for advance purchase, or $85 at the gate, if available.
*Halloween Night (Oct. 31st) always sells out first! Tickets are $125.
Cast members can buy discounted tickets at the Company D store for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at a 30% discount off of general ticket prices for several party nights in August and September. $55/ticket.
The ticket prices are good for the earlier party dates in August and September – and now some dates in October – which is wonderful as those are the less crowded nights.
At last year’s MNSSHP party:
The Magic Kingdom will be fully decorated for Fall/Halloween by Wednesday, August 15th this year. Two weeks earlier than last year.
MNSSHP party details:
Hours: 7:00 pm – Midnight
2 Boo To You Parades: at 8:15 pm and 10:30 pm
HalloWishes Fireworks: at 10:15 pm
CP Tip: The party starts at 7pm, but Disney let’s guests wearing costumes in for the party starting at 4pm. (Normally, adult guests may not wear costumes in the parks.) Come early and plan on staying until midnight!
Plan on being at MK all day: Plan on going to the Magic Kingdom in the morning and storing your costume in the lockers near the entrance. At 4pm, change into your costume and have your photo taken on Main Street before the crowds arrive at 7pm!
If you have time: Go visit the Headless Horseman at Fort Wilderness in 2018 earlier in the evening.
Have a magical time!
Watch out for the headless horseman who leads the Boo To You Parade each evening!!
Disney provides the treating candy bags for free. There are 13 – a lucky number! – trick-or-treating candy stations too!
One final party note!
There are new, expanded costume rules! Please plan your party costume accordingly!

Lions and Tigers and Strollers, Oh My!
This is not Caroline’s first time in the Disney College Program. Along with her sister, she was previously accepted into the program a few years earlier. Back in Colorado, Caroline was wishing for a little more pixie dust to brighten up her life. On a whim, she decides to apply to the exclusive Disney Alumni Summer Program.
Now that she’s back, things get wild.
Wild, as in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, where Caroline is assigned to work in Stroller Rental. While not the most glamorous position in the park, it’s often ground zero for humanity at its best and at its worst.
While Caroline makes many “Magical Moments” for deserving guests whose pixie dust has gone temporarily sideways, she also receives magical moments of her own through the friendships she makes, going to Disney cast member exclusive events, and all the spectacular dining opportunities at Disney World.
Caroline tells all – from the ins and outs of Disney’s secret training class called Traditions; to learning how to be a happy cast member during on-the-job training; to what it’s like to interact with fellow cast members and the guests who are ready to explore the most magical place on earth.
Join Caroline as she takes you on a wild ride through her adventures in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. But be careful, it’s a jungle out there!
Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
