Halloween decor at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom

Fewer crowds, slightly cooler temperatures, and a fantastic Halloween party are just some of the reasons why you should consider an October visit to Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. Although October is not the least busy month, the air is considerably less humid and the attractive holiday displays & festivities make the experience even more memorable for  Disney fans.

Main Street is beautifully decorated for the season. Everywhere you look you will see Jack O’Lanterns, fall decor, and adorable Mickey themed pumpkin wreaths. Festive Halloween music and crowds dressed in costumes add to the atmosphere.

Almost all the rides are open and lines are extremely uncrowded. Most guests tend to congregate near Main Street and the parade route, so if you are more interested in enjoying rides, here’s your chance to get on as many as possible! Even popular attractions like The Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean had no longer than a 10-15 minute wait! Including watching the parade and fireworks show, we were able to get on around 10 rides! Not too bad for an 8 hour day.

Disney’s annual Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is a fun, festive holiday event that is sure to get you into the holiday spirit. This family friendly event takes place at night after the regular park closes, from 7:00pm-Midnight (although guests can begin to enter at 4). Limited admission means fewer crowds, less wait times for the rides, and a more comfortable atmosphere strolling around the park.
