Disney Review: 2010 Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party
Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a special ticketed event that takes place on several evenings in September, October and, this year, November 1. It does not require regular theme park admission. It is a fun way to enjoy the wonderful decorations in the Magic Kingdom.
For your ticket you get a free trick-or-treat bag (adults get them, too). On the event map are marked many locations for trick or treating, several of the areas also have character meet-and-greets. Some of them are characters you do not normally get to meet, such as all seven of the Dwarves from Snow White and Lady Tremaine and her daughters from Cinderella. The cast members all seem to have a similar assortment of small or fun sized candy. A few of the stations have raisins which can be handy for children who can't eat candy or have allergy issues. The Thespian suggests that Walt Disney World look into having a couple of candy stations for children with allergies, such as carob or rice "chocolate" or sunflower or almond butter products which the Thespian has seen given out at other large Halloween events.
Most of the rides and attractions are open and have a very short wait. See the amazing photo below:
This event is a good value for the price. It is cheaper than normal theme park admission and you can take part in up to 8 hours of rides, parades, character meet and greets, fireworks, shows and trick or treating.
