NEWS: Firework Dessert Parties Return to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

The first Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is just around the corner, and soon guests will be able to make reservations for two different Firework Dessert Parties at Magic Kingdom. Learn more below.


One of the most anticipated offerings of the Halloween Party is the return of “Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular,” a Halloween-themed fireworks show that debuted in 2018. The fireworks have not been seen since 2019, which is the last time the party was available. Guests line up early to watch the 9:15 pm parade and then stay there for the fireworks at 10:15 pm. Many guests prefer to have guaranteed viewing for the fireworks, and if that is you, then you may want to consider the Dessert Parties.

Two Dessert Party Options

There are two options available: (1) the “Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular Dessert Party with Plaza Garden Viewing” or (2) the “Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular Dessert Party at Tomorrowland Terrace.”

Both options include an assortment of desserts such as chocolate-dipped strawberries, seasonal fruits, cheeses, and other “ghoulish goodies” and an assortment of beverages. Beer and wine are available for guests over 21.

The difference between the parties (in addition to price) is where you view the fireworks. With the Plaza Garden option, you’ll be taken to the Plaza Garden, where you’ll stand to view the fireworks. With the Tomorrowland Terrace option, you’ll be able to view the fireworks while seated on the restaurant’s terrace.

Pricing for the Dessert Parties

Party with Plaza Garden Viewing

  • Price: $99 (including tax and gratuity) for Guests ages 10 and older; $59 (including tax and gratuity) for Guests ages 3 to 9

Party at Tomorrowland Terrace

  • Price: $115 (including tax and gratuity) for Guests ages 10 and older; $69 (including tax and gratuity) for Guests ages 3 to 9

It’s important to note that a valid admission ticket for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party on the same night is required and is not included in the price of the dessert party. Since the Halloween Party prices range from $109-$199, you’ll be spending a lot of money in one evening if you add a dessert party. While it may not be for everyone, anyone who wants a guaranteed viewing location for the fireworks may consider it money well spent.


Advance reservations will open online beginning August 9, 2022. We highly recommend making reservations if you want to attend one of these parties.
