I cannot think of a better way to spend Halloween than visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. It is a fun and exciting way to make the most out of the holiday. Mickey and his friends take the scary out of Halloween and make it fun for children of all ages! Here are some tips so you can make the most out of your stay. Make sure you purchase tickets for “Mickey’s Not-So Scary Halloween Party”! This is a great way to enjoy a “Trick-or-Treating” experience Disney style! The Party begins September 5-October 31st! Purchase tickets in advance at www.waltdisneyworld.com to ensure that you will not miss out on the fun!
Dressing up is the essence of Halloween! Kids and adults alike will get the most out of the Disney experience by dressing up for their days at the Magic Kingdom! If you are headed to Mickey’s NSSHP, make sure you dress up for that. Put a new spin on an Disney character costume! If you visit the Magic Kingdom during Mickey’s NSSHP, you find all your favorite characters are dawning their own new costumes for the spooktacular event! Dress your little Donald Duck up as a pirate, or your Minnie Mouse as a princess herself! Keep in mind all costumes should be “family friendly” and unrestricting so you can enjoy Disney at it’s best!
Take the hassle out of finding and packing a costume. Visit one of the two locations of the Bippidy Boppity Boutique. Not only is this an affordable alternative to finding and packing a costume prior to your trip, but your little princess will be treated just like Cinderella and Snow White! They can pick out there own costume, get a new royal hairdo and find all the right accessories to make them the perfect princess for Mickey’s party or any day at one of the parks!
Don’t forget to trick-or treat at Mickey NSSHP! Candy is available at many different locations throughout the Magic Kingdom! Be sure to pick up a party guide map to gobble up all the goodies that are waiting for you!
Boo-To-You Parade is one of the favorites for everyone! See all your favorite Characters in their Halloween best! Be sure to find the parade route in your guide map and get a spot early as the best spots fill up quickly. There are normally two times for the parade. Try to hold out for the later parade. It is usually less crowded and easier to get a great spot. This is one parade you will not want to miss!
Happy Hallo-Wishes! It’s Disney’s Fireworks Halloween Style! What more can I say about this, The fireworks are always the “highlight” of any Disney trip! A new fireworks show just for Mickey’s party! What a treat! Watch your little one’s eyes light up with the sky during this spectacular fireworks event!
Parties and special events held at the Magic Kingdom are usually very crowded. So skip any rides that you can hit on a normal day, with the exception of The Haunted Mansion. Normally they do some special extras that you do not want to miss! Big Thunder Mountain also has been known to cook up something special for the night. However, do not forgo special party activities to wait in line for a ride that you can catch on a regular day!
Normally, when you have a party ticket, Disney allows you admission into the Magic Kingdom earlier than the start of the party. Show up early. Parties seem to be oversold, so you want to make sure you avoid lines to get in. Once your in there, check out the stroller counter if you have any children under the age of seven. In the past, strollers have been free with party admission. It is a great place to stash candy and goodies from the night, not to mention the little ghosts and goblins that have tired out.
Keep in mind that the party makes for a long day for kids. An afternoon nap, or relaxing by the pool is the best way to spend the day before the party. Also, it takes time to get ready for Mickey’s Not-So Scary Halloween Party, so get started early.
Traditional trick-or-treating is fun, but it does not compare to gathering up candy from Cinderella’s castle! Candy, music, fun, and characters! How much better can it get? Spending your Halloween with Mickey and the gang beats ringing doorbells on dark doorsteps! You can ensure your child’s safety and ensure that they will have a blast spending Halloween at the Walt Disney World Resort!
