We are super excited to be headed back to the Disneyland Resort this year for Halloween Time! Last week, I shared some of the fun Halloween experiences we are excited about and have enjoyed in past…
Today I wanted to talk about Mickey’s Halloween Party, this will be our first year attending!
Mickey’s Halloween Party is an after-hours event that allows for trick-or-treating within the park, a special “Halloween Screams” fireworks spectacular and “Mickey’s Costume Party” cavalcade.
And because it’s held at Disneyland there are still rides, attractions and characters to enjoy!
I think my boys will really enjoy seeing the Disney characters dressed up for Halloween! We haven’t experienced the Halloween Party yet because I wanted the boys to be old enough to enjoy it. At 2 1/2 I think Elliot will be *just* old enough to get a kick out of it. And at 5 Quinn definitely enjoys dressing up and trick-or-treating.
Various candy stations are set up throughout the park for trick-or-treating fun. As a mom, I am super happy to report that Disney provides healthier treats as well as candy!
What are the chances I can con sweet talk my boys into eating a few healthy treats first?
Once the boys score a few treats, we can focus on enjoying “Mickey’s Costume Party” cavalcade and the “Halloween Screams” fireworks spectacular.
“Halloween Screams – A Villainous Surprise in the Skies” is a fireworks spectacular hosted by “Master of Scare-omonies” Jack Skellington and presented exclusively for guests of Mickey’s Halloween Party. Jack appears in a flash of fire above Sleeping Beauty Castle as haunting melodies fill the air and a Halloween pyrotechnics extravaganza explodes into the night. Classic Disney villains Maleficent, Ursula the Sea Witch and Oogie Boogie join in the “spirit” of the celebration and even Zero, Jack’s faithful ghost dog, makes an appearance. Guests are encouraged to participate in a bone-chilling Halloween scream-along during the show.
The Halloween Party ticket allows you entrance to Disneyland 3 hours prior to the private event. So you can definitely head over and enjoy a little regular ‘Disney’ magic before the Halloween Party starts!
The after-hours Mickey’s Halloween Party is offered as a separate-ticket event* on these nights: Sept. 28 and Oct. 2, 5, 9, 12, 15, 19, 23, 26, 29 and 31.
Tickets purchased in advance for Mickey’s Halloween Party are $54 most days, while tickets purchased on the event days are $64. All tickets to Mickey’s Halloween Party on Monday, Oct. 29, and Halloween Night, Wednesday, Oct. 31, are $69.
I imagine that we will see quite a few Peter Pan costumes at the party, but I wonder how many Mr. Smees will be there. I am almost done with Elliot’s costume. How do you think I am doing so far?
What costume would your kids wear to Mickey’s Halloween Party?
