Where Can You Purchase These Specially Priced Tickets?
Direct From Walt Disney World
  • These special tickets must be purchased in person (with proper military ID) from Walt Disney World ticket or Guest Relations locations! They cannot be pre-purchased over the phone or internet.
From Shades of Green
  • You may also purchase these special tickets in person at Shades of Green's Ticket Office.
  • 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 (MDE).
  • Definitely in advance of the party, especially if you plan to attend on Halloween night, or if there is a specific day you prefer to go. There were not many sold out parties in 2016. More parties sold out in advance in 2015 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 in 2016 was Halloween night (October 31) and that party sold out on September 16.
: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, with a few M&G exceptions.
: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 wristband. 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!
Tortuga Tavern (Adventureland)
Mickey's PhilharMagic (Fantasyland)
Buzz Lightyear (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

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 trick-or-treat bag (teal bag) and coins that will designate them as having an allergy (teal is the color that represents food allergy awareness). These bags and coins can be picked up at Heritage House to be redeemed for allergy-friendly treats at various locations in the park.

You will be able to view an allergy-friendly menu listing all the special treats available. According to their manufacturers the treats are free of the 8 major allergens – milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, wheat, and soy, and are also made in a facility free of those allergens. Below is a list of all the allergy-friendly options:

The Memory Maker Window begins at 6am EST on the day you use the 1D theme park admission with which MM is bundled at purchase or if MM was purchased separately, the date the photo selected on the MDE app, or of applicable, on MyDisneyPhotoPass.com when purchasing MM or when linking a previously purchased MM code to your Disney account and ends at 5:59am EST on the following day. (i.e. The 1D Memory Maker can be purchased in the app, after you have a photo loaded into your account, click on the photo, and you will get the option to purchase either the 30-day MM for $169, or the 1-day MM for $59).

PhotoPass photographers will take Magic Shots during the party where you will pose and when you see the photos afterward, you'll see something magically inserted into the photo.

  • Boo-To-You runs at 9:15pm and 11:15pm.

: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. We thoroughly enjoyed attending our 1st MNSSHP (2016), we attended 2 parties (10/30 & 10/31). 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.

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.

Please note that the party will go on regardless of weather, so even if it's pouring down raining, it will take place. Please note 2016 did have weather closers (See 2016 Official MNSSHP Thread).
  • 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!

Woohoo!! I've been to the xmas party twice but never to the Halloween party, but this year we have a trip planned beginning of October so we are planning on doing the party for the first time! Our trip dates are 10/5 to 10/15 and I'm hoping for a party on Thursday the 12th. Our family of 4 will be doing a pirate theme with reservations at Pirate's League hopefully.

    Sold Out Dates: September 25 (9/25);
    Sorry I asked this on the old thread - any idea why this date sold out? It was a Sunday-is there a holiay or another event going on that brought in the crowds? Ironically we had hoped to go to the one this year on Sunday 9/24 but not if its possible its going to be sold out too :(

    I think it was the last date (or the last date in September) that CMs could get a discount.
    Not open for further replies.
