Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party on November 2
What do you think the crowds will be on Nov 2nd this year (2012) for the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party? We’d like to go, but I’d rather not spend an additional 200+ if it will be shoulder to shoulder and 40 people deep for the parades. Thoughts?

Dad’s Not So Scary Answer
Yes, November 2 is the last Halloween Party. It’s typically the party that is second in crowds to the actual Halloween Day party. So will the crowds be huge? Let’s see.
Tickets to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party are limited. The exact number is not published, but some say it’s around 40,000. Let’s put that number into perspective. On a normal summer day, the Magic Kingdom will average around 70,000 guests (I’m guessing). On a slow February day, the Magic Kingdom will have around 30,000.
This means that November 2 crowds will be bigger than slow days, but not nearly as busy as an average summer day.
So what will the crowds actually be like. To be honest, pretty big. Not uncomfortably big, but there will be a big crowd to see the parade. Lines won’t be terrible, but there will be lines.
Dad’s Bottom Line
Trista, unlike some of the earlier parties, you won’t have the park to yourself. But the November 2nd Halloween Party will be a bit crowded. If I was putting it in one of my crowd calendars, I’d have to turn it red.
