Good morning, my question is about Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. My wife and I are travelling to Disney at the end of October. We don’t have any kids. Is Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party worth $110 for 2 adults? We were going to go on a Tuesday night to avoid the biggest crowds. Thanks for your help!

Dad’s Just for Kids? Answer
What a great question. I would say I’ll tell you in a couple of weeks (Mrs. Mom and I are going on the 18th), but that might be a little late for you. So let’s just take a look and see what the party offers.
What makes Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party different from an normal day at the Magic Kingdom? The big thing is that you get to trick-or-treat in the Magic Kingdom. Yes, there are 16 places where you can trick-or-treat and can fill up a bag with goodies (some really nice looking goodies). (Disney has brought in 215 tons of candy just for the parties). Plus you can exchange your sweets for healthier options at City Hall.
If you don’t like trick-or-treating then you might enjoy the dance parties. Every night during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party there are 2 dance parties. At the Rockettower Plaza Stage – Chip and Dale, Goofy, Pluto and Stitch come out and throw a Dance Party. Over at the Diamond Horseshoe Review you can dance with Woody, Jessie and Bullseye. No?
How about mixing it up with the Disney villains. On the Castle Forecourt Stage there are both meat and greet opportunities and several shows starring the villains from Disney Movies. Still ot your style?
Then there is always HalloWishes or the Boo Too You Parade HalloWishes is the nightly fireworks show that has been taken over by the Haunted Mansion’s Grinning Ghosts. Boo To You is a zombie filled fun celebration of Halloween. Mickey and all his friends dress up in their favorite costumes and take floats through the park.
Still not hitting any buttons? That’s OK. Dad and Mrs. Mom are going to the party this year but I don’t really think it’s a must see for adults. (I do think Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is a must see but not so much the Halloween Party.)
Party tickets are pretty pricey for am evening at the Magic Kingdom.
Dad’s Bottom Line
Dean, the bottom line is if you love Halloween, you’ll love the Halloween Party. If you’re a bit indifferent about Halloween, the Party isn’t for you. That’s what it boils down to.
