Fall is arguably the best time of the year to visit the Walt Disney World Resort. With special events across the multiple theme parks and Resorts, there is so much to see and do during fall at Disney World, including one of our favorite annual events, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

This seasonal event arrives in the Magic Kingdom each fall offering Guests the opportunity to spend the evening in the Park with Disney’s spookiest entertainment, parade, fireworks, character meet and greets, specialty eats, trick-or-treating, and more. Plus, it’s one of the only opportunities for Guests of all ages to dress up at a Disney Park.

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party has been a fan-favorite seasonal event at Walt Disney World since it was first hosted in 2008. In the years since, the event has only continued to grow in popularity, with each season typically offering more dates to experience the event.

Last year’s event in 2022, was the first to see nearly every night sell out due to pent-up demand following the COVID-19 pandemic. While capacity restrictions were still in place at Walt Disney World, the traditional party was replaced with a smaller after-hours event for the 2021 season, so tickets for the 2022 party sold out fast.

With last year’s event selling out so quickly, you’ll want to start planning now if you hope to attend this year’s party. Here are the event dates for this fall, plus other information you’ll want to know ahead of your trip.
