From Shades of Green
  • You may also purchase these special tickets in person at Shades of Green's Ticket Office.
  • There is no tax if purchased through SoG (Reported).
  • New This Year (2016) - SoG will ship tickets for a fee ($10). Call 407-824-1403 for details.
:maleficenWhere can I buy the tickets? When should I buy tickets?
  • Tickets can be ordered by calling 407-W-DISNEY or purchase online, https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/tickets/events/. Once you purchase tickets, they will be linked to your My Disney Experience account.
  • Definitely in advance of the party, more parties sold out in advance last year than ever before. Of the 26 parties in 2014, 11 sold out in advance (guest list thread on the Disboards). The first party to sell out was Halloween night (October 31) and that party sold out on August 21.
:maleficenWhat time does MNSSHP start? What time can I enter the park?
  • MNSSHP officially starts at 7pm. Guests may enter Magic Kingdom using their party tickets starting at 4pm. This practice is not officially advertised by Disney, but it has been exercised for many years and Cast Members will readily confirm this information. None of the party-specific M&Gs or trick-or-treating will begin until 7pm.
:maleficenDo I need a wristband? What if I want to stay without one?
  • Yes, a wristband is included in the cost of admission. All ticket holders for this event will be required to wear a wrist band. You may pick-up your wristband and map of the party at designated locations in the MK.
  • Once the party begins at 7pm, Cast Members begin looking for those who do not have wristbands to exit the park.
  • MNSSHP Ticket Holders have purchased tickets with "their money" for the party; if you do not have a ticket/wristband make your way to exit the gates by 7pm.
  • As discussed on another thread, there are different color wristbands, so NO Double Dipping to attend another party.
  • Oh, my! I'm already in the park. Do I have to exit and re-enter for MNSSHP? No, there are checkpoints within the park to check-in and receive wristbands for MNSSHP!
Locations
Tortuga Tavern (Adventureland)
Fantasy Faire (Fantasyland)
Exit to Monsters, Inc. (Tomorrowland)

:maleficenAre FP+ Reservations available during the party?
  • No, there are no FP+ reservations in the park after the 7 p.m. start of the party. You can, however, make FP+ reservations using your party ticket for the 4-6:30pm time period (FP+ Selections should be booked between 3:30-6:30pm), before the party officially begins. The good news is that most attraction lines will be short enough during the party that you won’t miss FP+ reservations much.
  • When Can I Make FP+ Reservations?
Staying at a Disney World Resort: 60D in Advance
Please note, if you only purchased MNSSHP tickets, your FP+ reservation is still based on resort check-in day.
Staying at a Non-Disney Resort: 30D in Advance

:maleficenDo you have a map of the party?
  • Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Map gives you an idea of special foods available, as well as show times for the major entertainment.
Map1.png
Map2.png
:maleficenWhat "tricks-or-treats" are offered?
  • More than 40 different kinds of brand-name candies, including Snickers, Milky Way, Butterfingers, M&Ms and Kit Kats, are included in three trick-or-treat candy mixes offered during the parties.
  • Four treat stops are sponsored at this year’s party, adding Werther’s Caramels, chocolate and yogurt-covered Craisins, Halloween Peeps and Dove chocolates.
Guests are given Trick-or-Treat Bags upon entry into the park, but the bags tend to be small. However, you can bring your own bag or purchase a souvenir bag in the park. Trick-or-Treat Bags can be used at the candy stations found throughout the Magic Kingdom. Locations are indicated on the map. There is no limit to how many times you can go back to the same location for more.

Food Allergy Info:

Guests with food allergies can get a special teal bag that will designate them as having an allergy (teal is the color that represents food allergy awareness). These bags can be picked up at Market Street, City Hall, Heritage House, Town Square Theater, or any of the trick or treat locations. At the trick or treat stations, these guests will get a teal token, which can be redeemed for allergy-friendly treats and non-food items at Heritage House and Town Square Theater. These are also the places to stop with any questions about the process.

https://onthegoinmco.com/2016/09/05/mickeys-not-so-scary-halloween-allergy-friendly

City Hall will not be passing out allergy-friendly candy this year as they have done in the past.

:maleficenShould I attend?
  • Is MNSSHP worth it? IMO it is most definitely worth the price at least once. I thoroughly enjoyed MVMCP, so I expect to enjoy MNSSHP. It’s definitely worth it if your budget allows.
  • There’s plenty of special entertainment, special decorations and lighting, and lots of unique character meet and greets.
  • If you decide to attend MNSSHP, make sure to purchase your tickets in advance, and use any available discounts (i.e. DVC, AP, etc,).
  • Tickets are more expensive on the day of the party, and several nights each year sell out completely.
:maleficenParty Crowds
  • MNSSHP is a special ticket event with a limited amount of tickets sold. It has been discussed that more tickets are being sold as of late. However, due to Party Entertainment, crowds tend to be more concentrated around the events, especially the parade and fireworks. Also, parties are typically busier the closer to Halloween and on Halloween night. If you can attend one in early to mid-September you will find it less crowded than one in late October. Day of the week tends to matter as well, with Monday through Thursday evenings being less busy than the weekend events.
:maleficenTransportation
The Walt Disney World Transportation, including the boat launches, bus and monorail stations, all continue to run during and after Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.
:maleficenWeather
  • Please note that the party will go on regardless of weather, so even if it's pouring down raining, it will take place.
  • Due to Florida weather, ensure that your costume/party attire is cool enough to wear in the heat and humidity and something that can easily be covered in a poncho.
    • Average high temperature: 84°F
    • Average low temperature: 66°F
    • Mean temperature: 75°F
    • Record high temperature: 95°F (1958)
    • Record low temperature: 38°F (2008)
    • Average Precipitation: 2.52 in.

It's a Halloween Party! Do people dress up?
YES! Yes! and Yes! Dressing up may be the most fun part of MNSSHP for both children and adults. Adults and children could wear a fun Halloween shirt, or become part of the new disneybounding trend (wear regular clothes that invoke a specific character based on your style and budget.)

The Pirates League & Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique
The Pirates League offers Pirate or Pirate Princess makeovers, while BBB offers a new Minnie Mouse "witch" inspired look.

Reservations for the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique (407-WDW-STYLE or 407-939-7895) and The Pirates League (407-WDW-CREW or 407-939-2739) should be made as far in advance as possible. These locations book up fast, especially on Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party nights!

    The most current information we have is that only children under 14 will be allowed to wear full costumes. I would adjust that as we all hope for a change to that policy.

    Subscribing. Also you might want to add that parties are traditionally held on Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday nights in Sept. then on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday nights in Oct. ;)

    Great start! And thanks for taking over the thread.

    Costumes will be the biggest change this year. As of now, only kids (under 14) can wear costumes, over 14 may not. I'm sure addition guidelines will be in place for the parties. Hopefully, something similar to the RunDisney guidelines.

    Curious if the first party of the year tends to bring in large crowds, despite it (potentially) being on a Tuesday.

    Curious if the first party of the year tends to bring in large crowds, despite it (potentially) being on a Tuesday.
    I think last year the 1st party sold out, but before last year I don't think the first one has usually been a sell out. I think it will be interesting to see what their adult costume policy is and how that plays into ticket sales. It will also be interesting to see if they do ban costumes for anyone 14 and over if they will then change the costume policy if they discover that tickets aren't selling as well as usual. I have to think an adult costume ban would hurt ticket sales. I suspect there may not be nearly as many sold out parties this year if they have a total adult ban. (Although, the rumors I have seen is that it may be limited costumes allowed - no robes (aka no jedis), no capes past the waist, no costumes that reach or touch the ground (i.e. no full length princess dresses), no costume props or prop costumes (i.e. no up house or push the talking trash can), no layered costumes that could conceal items, etc. That would still prohibit a ton of the great costumes we have seen, but it would be better than nothing).

    For us, one of the best things about MNSSHP is seeing what all the adults are wearing. It is such a fun party atmosphere due to the adult guests in costume and feeling like kids again. We have been to WDW in October and to the MNSSHP party the last 3 years. The first year we went to 2 parties during our trip. It was our first October trip and MNSSHP hooked us. The next 2 years we planned October trips again, and we went to 3 MNSSHP during our trips. In chatting with people at the party we talked to lots of adults in costume who either lived in the area or were off duty CMs who talked about how they had tickets for multiple parties during the season because they loved to be in the atmosphere and see what all the grown ups were wearing. I know that if there is a costume ban (especially after all the character and dance party cuts we experienced last year), we are not going to multiple parties. We have also decided that if the costume ban happens, we will likely just cancel our October WDW trip and go to another vacation destination this year. I think with all the little cuts we experienced on our trip last October (which was the first trip we really felt like we were paying more, but getting less), an MNSSHP costume ban might put us over the edge for this year's trip. I have to think that party ticket sales will be down at least somewhat if they have a full adult costume ban for the parties.

    While dates for the Halloween Party have not yet been released, it is expect to occur multiple nights this year, likely starting on September 13, 2016 and ending November 1, 2016.
    Wouldn't the 8th be the possible first day? The September Hours released has MK from 9am to 7pm on 09/08/2016

    Anything is possible, but I doubt it. Early September closings for the MK were listed at 7pm last year as well. They will update those hours closer to September.

    My trip is September 11-16, so I am hoping hoping hoping that the Halloween party will be taking place that week! Between that and the F&W festival now beginning on September 14th, my trip may be even more magical than I previously thought!

    Last year was our first MNSSHP, and my husband LOVED the costumes. He didn't believe me when I told him adults dressed up. We are going again this year, but if the adult costume ban is still in effect, it might not be worth the extra money to go to the party, since that was a big part of the fun. :(

    We had plans to go this year but will not be going if the policy on adult costumes does not change. That was the fun part of the party for us!
