Disney has announced that Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party will return this year! Unlike last year, this year’s events should have more of the “normal” experience which includes the parade, fireworks, non-distanced meets, and stage show. You may remember they did not have those for Boo Bash last year.


The event will run from August 12 to October 31 on select nights. Here is what we can expect to see during the event.

The Headless Horseman will ride his ghostly steed down Main Street, U.S.A. as a prelude to “Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade,” which features floats filled with Disney Characters dressed in their Halloween best, Disney villains and the Haunted Mansion graveyard diggers.  

What’s Halloween without candy? During Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, guests can go trick-or-treating for M&M’S, SKITTLES, SNICKERS, and other Halloween favorites at locations throughout Magic Kingdom Park. And new this year, guests will also receive a reusable trick-or-treat bag featuring a keepsake 50th Anniversary celebration and Halloween design.

I’m glad it’s returning. However Hallowishes was the best fireworks show ever. This new fireworks show that replaces Hallowishes is absolutely awful!!! Truly a tradedgy!
