Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Rides

Updated 8/24/2017

I normally do the rides and attractions during the day and save the party time for characters, Villains Mix and Mingle, Mickey’s Boo to You Parade and the fireworks.  The one ride I ALWAYS do during the party is the Haunted Mansion.  The maids and butlers dress up special for the party and the mansion has special lighting.  There are also special story tellers and you can have your photo made with the hearse driver!

If you choose to ride, you’ll find all the lines at a minimum except Peter Pan and Space Mountain.  Most are usually walk-on, but that is often the same during the day of a party as well.

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Shows

Updated 8/7/2018

There are four elements that make up the entertainment for each Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party: Dance Parties, Happy Hallowishes Fireworks, Mickey’s Boo-to-You Parade and the Villains Mix & Mingle. The dance parties offer you an opportunity to dance the night away with your favorite character and are available throughout the party. I recommend visiting the dance parties later into the night in order to make the most of your limited time.

Happy Hallowishes Fireworks


This is one of my favorite Disney fireworks shows. It combines pyrotechnics with great Halloween themed music and even has a 180 degree finale of vibrant explosions that will really shake you. You’ll hear from the Ghost Host, Oogie Boogie, Ursela and other Disney villains. Be sure to stand somewhere behind the Walt and Mickey statue. If you get too close, you’ll miss some of the timed fireworks. If you get too far away, you won’t be able to see the projections upon the castle. I recommend standing somewhere between Casey’s Corner and the Hub on Main Street for the best view. Arrive 15-30 minutes early for the best locations.

Mickey’s Boo-To-You Parade

One of the best parades in all Disney parks! If you have your space secured 15 minutes before the start time, have your camera ready for the ride of the Headless Horseman. During the parade many great characters parade past, but the highlights are the Haunted Mansion Gravediggers who grind their shovels on the ground creating sparks, the Haunted Mansion dancing ghosts and the Ghost Riders in the Sky. I recommend attending the second parade. You won’t have to secure a spot as early. The best spots for the first parade are usually taken 60 minutes early and the same spots could be found for the second parade 15-30 minutes early.

Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular

The mischievous Sanderson Sisters from Disney’s “Hocus Pocus” return to the mortal world during the Halloween season. With only a few hours to run amuck, the three sisters use their magic to throw the best, most evil Halloween party this side of the graveyard!


Cadaver Dans

The Cadaver Dans are the party version of the fabulous Dapper Dans singing group that appears on Main Street daily.  They dress up for the haunted occasion and sing some special songs.
