Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party returns to Walt Disney World for the first time since the pandemic.
The popular fall event, which dates back to 1995, was skipped in 2020. Another Halloween event, Disney After Hours Boo Bash, took place at the Florida resort last year.
Disney Parks on Thursday announced the return of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Oogie Boogie Bash at Disneyland, California, marking the halfway point of the year leading up to Halloween.
Here’s what the parks are brewing for the after-hours events, which require special tickets separate from regular theme park admission. More details are expected in the coming months.

Mickey’s not-so-scary Halloween party at Disney World
The event takes place on 37 different evenings between August 12th and October 31st.
Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party officially runs from 7:00 p.m. to midnight, but traditionally, guests can enter the Magic Kingdom a few hours early. They are usually given a wristband or some way of identifying them as a party attendee, as regular parkgoers have to leave the park before the event begins.
The Sanderson Sisters, who are returning to big screens this fall in the long-awaited sequel to Hocus Pocus, will join the event’s exclusive entertainment. Party-goers can also expect to see and take photos with a variety of iconic Disney villains and classic Disney characters in Halloween costumes. Also this year there will be step-in photo opportunities exclusively for the event.
As part of Disney World’s one-year 50th Anniversary celebrations, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party guests will receive a Halloween-themed 50th Anniversary commemorative print and a reusable trick-or-treat bag to use with them Treats can collect around the park.
