Disney has just made an announcement about the fate of Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Parties for this year. What do you think of their decision?
Halfway to Halloween
Today marks the halfway point to Halloween! Disney is sharing all kinds of fun things with us today, from delicious dishes to a mummy-approved Disney+ playlist and everything in between.
Are you doing anything special to celebrate the halfway mark to Halloween? I’ll be watching Hocus Pocus later!
So…is Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween party happening in 2021?
I know many of us missed the Halloween parties last year. Is there anything more fun than spending the evening in the Magic Kingdom trick-or-treating, meeting rare characters, and seeing all the amazing entertainment?
This year, Disney is replacing Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party with After Hours Boo Bash!
After Hours Boo Bash will replace the Halloween party this year.
From Disney: “Disney After Hours BOO BASH” will take place on select nights Aug. 10 – Oct. 31, from 9 p.m. to midnight. Tickets will go on sale next month, with an early purchase window available to guests of select Walt Disney World Resort hotels.
Disney After Hours BOO BASH” tickets will grant admission to Magic Kingdom Park as early as 7 p.m. without the need for a day park ticket or Disney Park Pass theme park reservation, giving you time to enjoy even more of your favorites.
As a reminder, park passes are already sold out for select categories on Halloween night. If you are hoping to enjoy Magic Kingdom during the day and then attend a party on October 31, please be aware of this! You can read more about that HERE.
What will Boo Bash look like?
Not only has Disney announced that a Halloween event is happening this year, but we also have some news to share regarding what the event will look like. We have not had fireworks, stage shows, or traditional character meets since the parks reopened lat July. These are many of the things that we love about the parties.
From Disney: “Spooky festivities will include Halloween-themed cavalcades, character sightings throughout the park, special performances by the Cadaver Dans, décor, lighting, music, treat stops with plenty of candy and so much more!”
Boo Bash is essentially an After Hours event with limited attendance and low wait times combined with many of the things we love about Halloween parties.
As a reminder, costume guidelines will be in place and Disney is still requiring face coverings for the event.

Be sure to share this post with your friends who were hoping to attend a Halloween party at Disney World this year.
How come inflatable blowup suits aren’t required to be worn to the Boo Bash Party at the Magic Kingdom park at Walt Disney World Resort?
Why do I get the feeling they will charge twice as much for half the experience? Call me cynical. Next up will be charging for fast passes.
No fireworks? That would be very sad
