If you've been reading TPR for any time at all, you should know that Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom has been an annual tradition for many years! It is our favorite of all the Halloween events in Orlando, and this is actually our third visit this year alone! And like last year where we all dressed up as the "different countries of Epcot" this year the group decided to take on a similar but different theme...

MNSSHP_2017_000.jpg
Here we are in our 2017 group costume!

MNSSHP_2017_001.jpg
And if you wanted to take a slightly closer look so you can figure out what we are (it's not that difficult, really...)

Tonight our cast of characters included...

MNSSHP_2017_005.jpg
A bride...

MNSSHP_2017_002.jpg
A princess.

MNSSHP_2017_003.jpg
A ringmaster...

MNSSHP_2017_004.jpg
The townspeople...

MNSSHP_2017_006.jpg
A miner...

MNSSHP_2017_007.jpg
An engineer...

MNSSHP_2017_008.jpg
A high-tech grandma...

MNSSHP_2017_009.jpg
A pirate...

MNSSHP_2017_010.jpg
And of course a castle!

MNSSHP_2017_011.jpg
The girls are all very excited to get into the park!

MNSSHP_2017_012.jpg
Just in case you weren't sure if Megan was a male or female...

MNSSHP_2017_013.jpg
Here we are ready for MIckey's Not So Scary Halloween Party!

MNSSHP_2017_014.jpg
Since the party is all about Trick or Treats and in order to get those treats you need bags, here is the first thing you get!

MNSSHP_2017_015.jpg
Megan was really popular tonight...which is a stark contrast to her normal life! :P

MNSSHP_2017_018.jpg
The bride never smiled...

MNSSHP_2017_019.jpg
The castle has an.... um... "drawbridge?"

MNSSHP_2017_020.jpg
Let's hear it in support of the women! (and no, Elissa's costume is not the Mary Poppins mother, she's one of the Main Street townspeople!)

MNSSHP_2017_021.jpg
Representing Liberty Square...

MNSSHP_2017_022.jpg
Dallas would make a much better president than our current one, however so would a sponge, so that's not saying much I guess!

MNSSHP_2017_023.jpg
Dallas is NOT upset at all about Hall of Presidents still being closed! :P

MNSSHP_2017_024.jpg
I thought those 999 haunts were supposed to be happy?

MNSSHP_2017_025.jpg
Tangled Toilets back in her natural habitat!

MNSSHP_2017_026.jpg
"Welcome to my home!"

MNSSHP_2017_027.jpg
Of course Flynn Rider would find Tangled Toilets hanging out at her house! :lol:

MNSSHP_2017_028.jpg
"The real throne is up in the tower!"

MNSSHP_2017_029.jpg
Kristen has found some fellow haunts to hang out with.

MNSSHP_2017_030.jpg
Representing Frontierland!

MNSSHP_2017_031.jpg
Chuck has that "mean grizzled miner" look down!

MNSSHP_2017_032.jpg
Brer Bear, Brer Rabbit, Brer Fox, and Brer Bethany.

MNSSHP_2017_033.jpg
Representing Adventureland!

MNSSHP_2017_034.jpg
Yo, ho! Wait...that didn't sound right...

MNSSHP_2017_035.jpg
It's not a night at Magic Kingdom until you ride the Peoplemover! (Suck it, California!) :p

MNSSHP_2017_036.jpg
Yes, we are all about to ride Space Mountain!

MNSSHP_2017_036a.jpg
These may be the best onride photos we've ever taken on Space Mountain! :lmao:

MNSSHP_2017_037.jpg

MNSSHP_2017_039.jpg

MNSSHP_2017_039a.jpg
"Hey Universal... no fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo needed here!" ;)

MNSSHP_2017_039b.jpg
Remember when you see this sign...

MNSSHP_2017_040.jpg
You can get candy!

MNSSHP_2017_041.jpg
Lots of candy!

MNSSHP_2017_041b.jpg
As much candy as you can possibly take home! (Seriously!)

MNSSHP_2017_041c.jpg
ProTip! Always "double bag" when you go to the candy stations! We already had 5 bags full by 9pm!

MNSSHP_2017_043.jpg
Garbles castle had some challenges throughout the night!

MNSSHP_2017_044.jpg
"it's ok...I can just limbo all night long!"

MNSSHP_2017_048.jpg
HalloWishes is still one of the best fireworks shows at Walt Disney World!

MNSSHP_2017_049.jpg
The costumes & makeup that the Haunted Mansion "Ghost Hosts" get to wear are awesome!

MNSSHP_2017_049b.JPG
Kristen has found a new friend.

MNSSHP_2017_050.jpg
"This here is the WIIIIIIILDEST hat in the wilderness!"

MNSSHP_2017_051.jpg
"Grrr....I dug all these tunnels by myself!"

MNSSHP_2017_052.jpg
The Headless Horseman rides just before the Boo To You parade starts!

MNSSHP_2017_052a.jpg
Boo To You is still my all-time favorite Disney parade!

MNSSHP_2017_052b.jpg
While Mickey and his friends are all in the parade...

MNSSHP_2017_052c.jpg
The Haunted Mansion grave diggers always steal the show!

MNSSHP_2017_053.jpg
After the parade we went to the Big Top Candy Stations...

MNSSHP_2017_054.jpg
The candy girls here are always the best!!!

MNSSHP_2017_055.jpg
OMG!!! SOOOO MUCH CANDY!!!

MNSSHP_2017_056.jpg
The ringmaster has found her home! "We've got magic to do...just for you..."

MNSSHP_2017_064.jpg
Tangled Toilets got to meet Rapunzel!

MNSSHP_2017_065aa copy.jpg


MNSSHP_2017_065b.jpg
Rapunzel loved our entire group!

MNSSHP_2017_065c.jpg
And so did Tiana!

MNSSHP_2017_066a.jpg
The new "headless horseman" Photo Pass is AWESOME!!! Here's a few photos of our group...

MNSSHP_2017_066b.jpg

MNSSHP_2017_067.jpg

MNSSHP_2017_068.jpg

MNSSHP_2017_069.jpg

MNSSHP_2017_070.jpg

MNSSHP_2017_071.jpg

MNSSHP_2017_072.jpg
Another FANTASTIC night at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party!

MNSSHP_2017_073.jpg
Oh yes...the candy stash! We ended up with seven full bags of candy! Now the goal is to see if it will last until the NEXT Halloween Party! :Pr

Ok everyone! Now it's your turn! Be sure to POST YOUR COMMENTS!!! We took the time to write the report! The least you can do is say something somewhat nice about it!

Awesome event, Robb! And so - much - candy! Maybe next year, one of you guys should go as a Candy Bag itself. Could work, lol.
Or each member of the group, could go as a different candy package, itself! Nice shout out to PIPPIN, too. And I repeat:
so - much - candy! That's also awesome that you didn't have to put up with using lo - ck - er - s. Disney Parks are great that way.
But - where did you put all - that - candy? I'm guessing one of you at certain times, became a "mobile bunnie with goo" and kept all those
candy bags, while the rest rode an attraction, etc.

Great tour of the evening, Robb. And "The Lands'" themeing was a great idea for group costumes. :mickey:

Love it!

looks like y'all had a great time (again).

LOL. some of the headgear looks like it wouldn't withstand some of the night, but very impressed that they not only made it on rides, but still looked great.

of course, my favorite is the un-smiling bride, but castle is a close second!

That really is so awesome. Your group costumes are always so amazing and genius. I really loved everyone's thought going into each costume. Do they have other Photo Pass areas like the Headless Horseman? Is that something Disneyland offers or is that another reason why Disney World is so much better than California?

Must go to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party..... must go to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party....

Awesome report!I I'm pretty sure I wrote the exact same thing last year, but this event is sooooo high on my bucket list! I don't care much for all the 'proper scary stuff' that other parks do, but this just looks like so much fun which is exactly my cup of tea!

Love the onride photos! I can't believe Jake is riding Space Mountain with the castle hat on! :lmao:
