Since me and Joe are going to WDW during the time that MNSSHP is on, we are thinking of attending the event! Tactically, we are thinking of going early on in the trip just so then we have the sweets to eat throughout the 2 weeks haha!
I’m not a massive fan of Halloween but maybe that’s because in England, Halloween isn’t a huge thing, especially compared to America. So, I feel like it would be pretty cool to see the level Americans go with Halloween and to be apart of the celebration! Plus, even though I haven’t been to WDW before, it would be pretty cool to attend a seasonal event to see what they’re like and have the park less busy and more able to go on rides!
The dates for MNSSHP have came out for this year, it starts from August the 13th and finishes November the 1st. The dates include:
August: 13th, 18th, 21st, 25th, 28th

There are plenty of dates for you to hopefully attend during your trip!
People like to attend this event dressed up in their favourite Halloween costume, however Disney do have some rules on what you can and can’t wear. Basically, a standard rule which makes sense is to not wear anything offensive or rude, which hopefully people wouldn’t do considering it’s a Disney park where lots of children go to haha! But, if you are wondering about whether your costume is safe, you can google to see what other people may think or even try to get in touch with Disney, but I mean, if you’re debating whether it’s okay then maybe don’t risk it and change your outfit!
The MNSSHP includes a few extra things you wouldn’t have usually in Magic Kingdom. They have their own parade, fireworks show and a stage show from Hocus Pocus. There will also be some Halloween themed characters you can meet, like Jack and Sally, so if you’re a fan of the villains of Disney, then this event will be perfect for you! This kind of makes me think whether this is going to be a good idea for me to go considering I get scared of basically any character, especially the ‘scarier’ ones…pray for me!
A really cool part to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is the trick or treating! There are many stations across the park where castmembers will be handing out candy and from what I’ve seen, they don’t seem to go short on how much they give you! Even though I will be 21 when I go, this is probably the most exciting part of the event to me, I love chocolate and I’d love to get some American sweets to try! Kids would also love this because Halloween to most people is all about getting sweets.
Even though it’s a Halloween event and it’s obviously meant to be scary, Disney will always keep in mind the little kids and will provide them with extra things for them to be involved in, but I would advise that if your kid/s aren’t too great with scary things or even the villain characters, then maybe it won’t be worth you paying out for this type of event.

I’m actually really excited to attend this event and I can’t wait to give my review on it!
