Halloween Party runs on select dates from September 14th through November first at the Magic Kingdom. This after hours, ticketed event is held from 7pm to midnight. Although, guests are usually allowed advanced access as early as 4pm.
As you enter the park, you are given a map, events sheet and trick or treat bag to collect your goodies in. At 7pm sharp, guests without wristbands are asked to leave the park. All attractions have a check point for wristbands as well.
It’s a chance to put on your Halloween best, and trick or treat from land to land. Handfulls of candy are given at each stop, and have contained in the past: chocolate bars, gum, sweet tarts, Smarties, Tootsie Rolls, and gummy candies.
Most of the attractions are open, and wait times are minimal. It’s your chance to ride the 3, big, mountain rides with little or no wait times. Fast passes are available as well, although you probably won’t need them.
Be sure to catch Mickey’s “Boo to You” Halloween parade shown twice each night of the party. It runs from Frontierland down through Main Street. It is led by the Headless Horseman, which is a wicked sight to see. From there, your favorite characters follow, all dressed up in their Halloween best. They perform to a catchy, little tune that will stay in your head hours after the party has ended.
Happy HalloWishes, the nightly fireworks display portrays the Disney villains, as they trick or treat across the night sky. It is truly one of the best displays I have ever seen. Try to get a spot in front of the castle for best viewing.
The Magic Kingdom itself is transformed into a combination fall/Halloween spectacular. Specialty lighting, and music abounds, making for a festive atmosphere.
This is an all age event. It’s really “Not so Scary.”
