Boo To You and you and you...

Updated: Oct 7, 2022

Can you hear the music playing?

Disney Halloween
The Magic Kingdom is transformed during Halloween, and Mickey pumpkins can be found throughout the park.

In case you haven’t heard, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is BACK for the first time since 2019 and we couldn’t be more thrilled!

A staple for of our family, we attend this event each year and think everyone should try it at least once. This Halloween party is always a popular ticket, with the event price increasing as Halloween approaches. So if you’re interested in going on a particular date, book early.

Guests are allowed to enter the park at 4 p.m. even though the party doesn’t officially begin until 7 p.m., but there are plenty of things to do in the meantime. Just know that the majority of the party-exclusive merchandise and snacks, and the Boo-to-You Parade and fireworks don’t happen until later on in the evening.

There are no words to describe the spooktacular fireworks at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. Trust me - it's worth every penny.

During October, there are many things to see in the most magical place on Earth, from the delicious treats to the extra special fireworks. (They really are incredible!) But our favorite spot is something a little different.

For the past 5 years, this former cast member and her family have become obsessed with the Fort Wilderness Campground at Halloween. If your children are anything like mine, they will love the Disney-themed Halloween decorations. There’s the Haunted Mansion and its Grim Grinning Ghosts, the Nightmare Before Christmas, the Mickey shaped pumpkins, and everything in between.

Trick-or-treating takes place throughout the Fort Wilderness Campground.

Whether you reserve a cabin, rent a trailer, or own your own Airstream, this vacation spot is unlike any other in Lake Buena Vista. Guests travel with carloads of decorations, homemade gifts to exchange, and Halloween costumes in tow to prepare for this experience unlike any other.

Frequent Fort Fiends anxiously anticipate the arrival of the October calendar with its Halloween events and activities - like which movies will play nightly at the campfire and when the Headless Horseman may (not) show his face.

One of our favorite activities is the golf-cart parade, which typically takes place during Halloween weekend. However, other happenings are sprinkled throughout the whole month, including unofficial evenings of trick-or-treating and “looping” around the campsites.

Disney Halloween
Golf cart parades take place twice a year at Fort Wilderness: Halloween & Christmas.

Anyone interested in learning more about Fort Wilderness or purchasing tickets to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party should reach out to Jill.
