I just love Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. I think I might like it a little better than Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. I know we did a poll, I think it was over on the magazine page this week, might have been on Dad's Guide, between Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party and the Christmas party won. Now you know I love Christmas at Walt Disney World, but I really like Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. It's just one of the ... I think it may be my favorite of the two parties.
So, what are my five favorite things at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party? Well, the first one is just kind of the atmosphere. You heard that spooky music that is playing all around the Magic Kingdom all night long, and the Haunted Mansion.
Especially get around the Haunted Mansion and they add some things in the Haunted Mansion. There's usually Madam Leota out in front, and there's sometimes there are some singers dressed up like the dead guys and singing the song that is in the Haunted Mansion. It's just a really, really cool atmosphere. I love the atmosphere at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party.
The second thing I love about Halloween party is it's pretty much the only time that everyone can dress up in costumes. Now you'll see kids, little girls that have been Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, kids that have been to the Pirate's League get all pirated up and be pirates in the parks almost every day.
But, on Halloween party night even adults can wear costumes in the parks. It's just really cool to see everybody all dressed up for Halloween during the Halloween party. You don't see that at Christmas because people don't dress up. You don't see people ... Well, I take that back. Last time we went we were wearing our Christmas sweatshirts, but not everybody does that. Not everybody gets up in Christmas looking gear and goes to that. But when you go to the Halloween party, everybody kind of tends to dress up.
Now Mrs. Mom and I, we dress up as tourists and go to the Halloween Party. Pretty awesome costumes right? Tourists, and go to the Halloween party. But, it's just, I love that everybody dresses up for the Halloween party.
The third thing I really love, and this is kind of a new thing. This has only been going on three or four years is the Headless Horsemen riding through the park. About 20 minutes before the parade starts the headless horseman rides. Starts at the back and rides all the way through the park down Main Street. It just gets so quiet. Everybody gets really quiet, and it's so spooky.
They turn the music off and it's just you hear the clop, clop, clop, clop as that horse comes, I would say running, but he doesn't come running, he comes just clop, clop, clop, clop through the park. I just love that beautiful black horse. That's the third thing I love about Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party.
The fourth, my favorite parade of all the parades at Walt Disney World has to be the Boo To You Parade. The grave diggers ... I mean it's just I like ... Maybe the Christmas parade is even better, but I really do like, I love the music that Disney has come up with for the Halloween party. The Boo to You song, get the Hallowishes in just a minute, but all of that is just so special. The Halloween parade I think is just fabulous.
Then there's the last thing that I love about Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. That is Hallowishes. Happy Hallowishes!
"Grim grinning ghosts come out to socialize..."
Boy does Dad sing good.
Happy Hallowishes is pretty much my favorite part of the whole party is Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. I think that's just, I think it is the best show, the best fireworks show that Disney does.
Now I was a big fan of Wishes. I'm a big fan of the holiday version of Illuminations, and I like the Christmas fireworks. I like those green and red fireworks going on all around the Magic Kingdom, but when it comes to my favorite fireworks show it has to be Hallowishes.
I bet I sneak over one night this next week and watch it. It's just pretty cool. We're not going to the party, but I think we're close enough on one of the party nights that I might be able to sneak over and watch it from like the Polynesian, which I love to do.
Dad's Bottom Line
Those are my five favorite things to do at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. I love the spooky atmosphere. I love watching everybody all dressed up in costume. I love that Headless Horseman, the Boo to You parade, and the Happy Hallowishes fireworks show.
