Hard to believe, but on August 25, while summer is winding down, the first Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party will kick off the fall season at Disney World. This party is a highlight for many fall vacations and has been a favorite of ours for many years. The party is a blast with fun for the whole family. Every year Disney releases special merchandise and treats so guests can enjoy the party even more. Below you’ll find all of the details on this years party merchandise and the special food treats only available during the party!
Halloween Party Merchandise
Here are all the details on this year’s merchandise from Disney Cast Member Steven Miller:
One way to commemorate a visit to the happiest haunting on Earth is with unique products created especially for this event. I caught up with the Disney Parks Merchandise team to discover what merchandise treats are in store for this year.
“We have a ‘spelltacular’ assortment this year,” laughs Cathy Dawson, Merchandise Product Developer for special events. “We have expanded the number of items featuring the Sanderson Sisters to include a new light up ornament and a tote bag. My favorite item, however, is the glow-in-the-dark retail MagicBand featuring Mickey and friends. This is the first time we’ve offered a MagicBand with that feature so it’s a real treat!” This Halloween-inspired MagicBand will be presented in a decorative box that smells like chocolate, and will have a limited edition size of 4,000. We’re also excited to offer a separate limited release MagicBand featuring the Sanderson Sisters. Both contain the MagicBand 2 design that we rolled out earlier this year, which is even more versatile and customizable than the original.
Guests attending the event will also find apparel for adults and kids, a light-up pumpkin ornament, and a limited release logo pin. Annual Passholders should look for a logo T-shirt and a limited edition pin with Hades from Disney’s “Hercules.”
“Disney Villains are a key part of the ‘Hocus Pocus Villains Spelltacular‘ stage show, so we thought they would make for great pins this year,” explained Erin Herbst, Merchandise Product Developer for Disney pins. “Each Villain is presented with a cauldron that opens to reveal key scenes and characters from animated features.” Select pins will be sold as individual limited edition pins, each with an edition size of 5,400. These pins will also be sold in a boxed set (1,000 edition size) and a framed set (300 edition size), each containing limited edition completer pins.
Finally, guests will find a limited release mystery pin set with world famous Disney characters dressed in Halloween costumes (pictured above). There are a total of 12 pins in this collection, which includes four limited edition chaser pins (1,000 edition size each). Each box contains two randomly selected pins.
The best locations to find these items during the event is Emporium on Main Street, U.S.A. and Big Top Souvenirs in the Storybook Circus area of New Fantasyland. Frontier Trading Post in Frontierland will also offer the event pins.

by Cindy N.
Every day at Disney World is a special occasion. So, it’s probably hard to believe that Disney could amp it up even more, but they are expert at turning the volume up to 11 when it comes to special events. And it doesn’t get any more special than when Disney World throws the absolute best Halloween party you’ve ever seen. This party is a must do for any fall Disney trip. Here are the 7 reasons why you’ll love Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party!
7 – Halloween Costumes
It’s quite normal to see many children, especially girls, in costumes around the parks. However, the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party gives older kids and adults a very fun excuse to dress up. I’ve seen some pretty elaborate costumes that are amazing! Be sure to read all about Disney’s costume guidelines in our 7 Tips & Tricks for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.
NOTE: Disney does not allow any masks that cover the face or objectionable costumes. Best strategy is to keep costumes PG.
6- Seriously Fun Atmosphere
You may already know that Main Street U.S.A is decorated with fall decorations. But during the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, the street comes alive with special lighting, sound effects, decor and more! All around the park you’ll be treated to amazing spooky (but not scary) atmosphere that will put you in the spooky holiday spirit!
5 – Trick-or-Treating
With many different treat locations, you’ll have plenty of candy for a fun filled evening. Disney gives you treat bags for collection so you don’t need to bring your own bags. See the party map for all of the candy locations marked by an orange Mickey. We’ve been pleasantly surprised to find a great variety of candy with some of our favorite brands!
4 – Disney Characters in Halloween Costumes
If you love unique pictures with Disney’s characters, then you won’t want to miss this party. Character’s will be in their Halloween costumes during the parade and at character greeting locations. Also, this is the only time of year you can meet Jack Skellington and his lovely, Sally. All Seven Dwarfs are usually out. We can’t wait to find out which characters will be scaring up fun this year!
3 – Best Disney Parade
The Party features “Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade,” which I personally believe is Disney’s best! Your favorite Disney characters are all dressed up for Halloween with fun music, dancing and treats! This parade begins in Frontierland with not to be missed viewing of the Headless Horseman! Watching the Headless Horseman gallop through Magic Kingdom on that giant black horse is chilling. The parade is at 9:15 pm and 11:15 pm.
2 – Amazing Fireworks Display
Also, don’t miss the Halloween themed “Happy HalloWishes” Fireworks at 10:15 pm. The Ghost Host from the Haunted Mansion invites you to “drop in” as Disney Villains light up the night with fireworks and a wicked version of melodies from Disney’s past that echo through the night—and creepy colors crawl over Cinderella Castle. The “scare-abration” gets into full swing when some of the Disney Villains we most love to hate—including Maleficent, Ursula, Cruella de Vil, Jafar and Oogie Boogie—croon their scary tunes and do their best to steal the show.
The soundtrack for this fireworks display is a fun filled spooky treat. Happy HalloWishes includes a Disney soundtrack of creepy classics including:
- “Grim Grinning Ghosts,” from the Haunted Mansion attraction
- “Poor Unfortunate Souls,” from The Little Mermaid
- “Never Smile at a Crocodile,“ from Peter Pan
- “The Skeleton Dance,” from Silly Symphony – The Skeleton Dance
- “Who’s Afraid of the Big, Bad Wolf?” from The Three Little Pigs
- “Oogie Boogie’s Song,” from The Nightmare Before Christmas
- “Night on Bald Mountain,” from Fantasia
We have the music at home and love listening to it during Halloween time! This is a great fireworks show that you won’t want to miss!
