Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

We have seriously been looking forward to this night for nearly a year!! Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is my number one thing to do in Disney World. I mean, imagine an evening with light crowds, special desserts, trick or treating, a fabulous one-of-a-kind parade, rare characters, dance parties, costumes, fireworks and your favorite Disney rides!!! The Magic Kingdom is literally transformed for the evening!!!

We were so excited to attend as the FROZEN crew in our DIY costumes!! Meet Kristoff, Anna, Sven and Olaf…

We got to the park right at 4pm and beat a path straight to Space Mountain. Honey and Whit did the speedway and People Mover while John and I took two rides on the coaster.

After hitting up a few more favorites in Adventureland and Frontierland and grabbing din din, we lined up to meet Jack and Sally for the first time. These two are only available at the party and John was beyond excited to finally see them!! They were so interactive and made it totally worth the wait.

Right afterwards, we snagged a prime spot for the Boo to You parade and joined in the street monster mash party.

It was lightly drizzling during the beginning of the parade but we were thrilled that the show still went on. This parade is AMAZING!! So many rare characters and villains, spooky music and special effects.

As soon as the parade was over we scooted over to Town Hall and were the first family in line to see Halloween Mickey.

On our way back to Fantasyland, we stopped for Happy Hallo-wishes and the special fireworks show. Both were just jaw dropping!! I will never tire of seeing the castle transformed like this!

After the show, we trick or treated and rode rides the rest of the night!! Goofy’s Barnstormer is one of Whit’s favorites and there were so few people on it that they didn’t even make us get off.

Dumbo at night is just pure magic.

And the candy corn ice cream treats were a great pick me up for such a late night!

At around 11pm the wait for Anna and Elsa was only 20 minutes. We had fast passes set up for our Magic Kingdom day, but since we were all in costume we unanimously agreed we should just do it then! I’m SO glad we did!!! The Arendelle royalty greet separately and so we met Anna first. I have no idea why I have no pictures of that on my camera OR on our PhotoPass???!!!! Anna was hysterical! She threw her arms out when we walked in and said “It’s Kristoff and Olaf and Sven and…. MEEEE!!!” After our time with her, we went over to meet Elsa. She was lovely and super engaging as well.

And while we were taking our time with Elsa, Anna came running across the room and asked to squeeze in! She linked arms with Kristoff/Honey and we were all just SO beyond excited to get to see them both together. They took so much time with us and really, truly made our night.

With just a few minutes until the stroke of midnight, we scurried over for one last spooky ride at the Haunted Mansion. We had so much fun with the magic shots afterwards!

As the party wound down and a new day dawned, we stopped for a last farewell in front of the castle.

And just like that, our evening had come to a close. We didn’t make it back to our beds until nearly 1AM. Needless to say, we were out in no time flat!
