The first Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party of the 2017 fall season was held last night on August 25th in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World.  Many guests were expecting the party to include Hocus Pocus themed merchandise for sale at the park and were unpleasantly surprised to find that the merchandise wasn’t available for purchase.  The expected merchandise included pins, shirts, Magic Bands, totes, figurines, etc.  Guests definitely noticed that the merchandise wasn’t there and left the party wondering where it was at.


There are different rumors circulating as to why this happened.  The first of the rumors is that the merchandise supply just didn’t arrive in time in order to be sold for the first party.  Another rumor is that there is a legal or licensing issue with the merchandise that prevents Disney from actually being able to sell it to guests.  These rumors are just speculation at this point and we won’t know for sure until we either hear official word from Disney or see the merchandise appear at a future Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.

Of course we will update as soon as we hear more about this much desired merchandise!  Which of the fabulous Sanderson Sister items were you most hoping to get your hands on?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
