Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party kicked off this weekend at Walt Disney World Resort. The frighteningly fabulous festivities returned this year after being replaced by the less popular Disney After Hours Boo Bash last year.
A separately ticketed soiree, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party runs from August 12 to October 31 on select nights. It didn’t take long for Walt Disney World Guests to start posting about their experiences on social media.
Festive videos flooded TikTok, documenting ghastly parades, creepy characters, delicious treats, and of course, Halloween merchandise. As always, the themed Disney products drew a large crowd, but some creators noted that the line for this year’s inventory seemed incredibly long!
A video posted by @travelagentwilliam showed droves of people wrapped around numerous buildings at Magic Kingdom Park, forming a line that seemed to continue on forever! Walt Disney World posted signs, “Emporium line starts here,” and Guests did not seem to mind the long wait.
One of the coveted items at the event was the ever-popular Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party spirit jersey. This year’s design dons a bright orange and black color scheme with the event’s title across the top, and a Halloween Mickey holding a pumpkin.
Later in the evening, the TikTok creator, who chose not to wait in the enormous line, shared that the spirit jerseys were still in stock after 11:00 p.m. Apparently, Walt Disney World is doing a better job at restocking their in-demand merchandise this year.
It’s no secret that reselling is a huge enterprise and Disney items are at the top of customers’ most wanted list. Does Disney World’s abundant amount of inventory suggest they have finally addressed the reselling issue at the Parks?
We hope so! Another TikTok creator, @thephantasmicprince, took to social media to share that this year’s coveted Mickey pumpkin blow mold was selling for $64.99 at the Parks. Unfortunately, resellers already got their hands on the seasonal item, selling it for a whopping $220 online.
Although the event did see some rain, we’re glad Disney Guests were able to enjoy Walt Disney World this weekend, as the Resort kicked off with its Halloween festivities!
