Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party 2017 Opening Night!

Postby robbalvey » Tue Aug 29, 2017 9:45 pm

I'm not much in a chatty mood tonight so I'll make this brief...

Once again, Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is by far my favorite Halloween event! Not just in Orlando, but PERIOD! As much as I do like traditional "horror" stuff, too, I prefer the cute, family-friendly atmosphere of this event, and I'm a Disney nerd, so yeah...

Here are the event details, ticket info, etc: https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/events-tours/magic-kingdom/mickeys-not-so-scary-halloween-party/

If you are in Orlando between the end of August and Nov 1st, we HIGHLY RECOMMEND this event! It is well worth the upcharge amount for the party!

We walked around and recorded a live stream video when we first got to the party! Watch the replay here:

We are here! Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party! Fun starts NOW!

We are about to enter the party!

We just ran into Newsies! They may just end up being our favorite costumes of the night!

Fun Fact: Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is one of the ONLY times adults can dress in costumes at Walt Disney World!

Image
When we picked up our candy bags they told us "you are going to need 3 or 4 tonight!" lol!

Here's a little bit of the Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party merchandise!

We love the candy girls at Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party! All the party staff make this event amazing!

Three years ago we dressed up as Newsies for Not-So-Scary! Happy to see @katgrosshans and friends carrying the banner today!

Image
The irony of people dressed as social media being posted to social media...

Trick or treating around the Magic Kingdom is off to a good start!

I love this new PhotoPass op they are doing in front of Haunted Mansion!

Another reason Mickey's Not-So-Scary is awesome? Short lines for rides! Yes that says 5 minutes!

We ended the night watching the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular! If you're a fan of the movie, watch the video of the show:


Image
Image
I love how the Main Street buildings look with the fog and the Halloween lighting! Incredible!

Image
Image
See ya real soon! Yes, because I'm going back again next week! :mickey:

Image
Of course, it wouldn't be a Mickey's Not-So-Scary without the candy haul photo! I think I did pretty well tonight!

thanks for the report of opening night.

This always looks like a great time, and is on my "one day" list. . . likely when we get back to WDW in the next few years.

question: do they leave the decorations out during the day? I'd assume yes, and that they just double for "fall" decorations. But just wondering.


hehe.. and is this cast member cosplaying as Robb??

I be seeing double!

must be that smile!

I love this event, and I'm always sorry when I miss it. The park looks great, there's candy, and there's a five-minute wait for Space Mountain--what's not to like?

Awesome report! I don't really care for the "scary horror" events, but this one definitely looks like my cup of tea! (yeah I'm a bit of a Disney nerd too) Perhaps the seasonal event I would like to visit the most, it looks like so much fun! Thanks for sharing!

Such an awesome event and I hope to attend it one day with the family. I do have a question...do the Cast Members place the candy in your bag or do you shove your hand in the candy and take what you want? The reason I ask is because one of our boys has a peanut and dairy allergy but loves some other candy's that aren't peanut or chocolate based (lots of Skittles and gummies). Halloween is always a hard time for him because we always have to make sure he doesn't touch some of the candy he can't have but it would be great if we could do an event like this.

I was fortunate enough to watch a lot of these "Live" on Facebook when you were there opening night. Great experience!

They put it in the bag, you never touch it. Disney also provides certain areas on the map that are dedicated allergen friendly candy locations.

I know more about donkeys than women!

This looks awesome, I definitely want to try to go one year. I didn't even realize that they started it so early, my mind is not thinking Halloween yet lol

The best thing to do for out of towners is to do one day at Magic Kingdom, and one night at the Halloween Party or Christmas Party. That way you can see the park in two different lights, save money, have time to sleep in one day or visit other attractions, get a lot of treats and get shorter wait times at the parties. It's a total win for a park that big.
Remember: Get out there and RIDE!

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

Great report, I can't wait to go to MNSSHP again on our 2020 (hopefully) trip.

The trick or treating looks so much better than our last time there, I can remember we ended up eating hardly any of our haul, that was way back in 2008 though. :lol:
