Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Pass Now On Sale

Exciting news for Disney locals and out of town guests that are planning a visit during the Halloween season…Walt Disney World is offering an amazing Mickey’s Not Scary Halloween Party Pass this year. I will be visiting the resort a couple of times during the fall and thought about purchasing the pass myself. It offers access to every Halloween party except Halloween night for the price of about $313 including tax per adult. In order to break even or for it to be a savings, I would need to attend 3 to 4 parties depending on the dates. I was already planning on attending two parties, so I decided to see if there were any other party nights during my stays, as it turns out there are not, so for me the decision to purchase or not was easy. Definitely run the math for your visit, because you may find this Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Pass is perfect for you.

The Halloween Party itself as well as the Halloween Party Pass offer many perks and benefits like early entrance to Magic Kingdom at 4pm on the afternoon of your party, lower wait times on many favorites attractions, unique character greetings, holiday foods and treats, scary lighting and music throughout the park, spooky overlays to select attractions, plus the stage show, parade and fireworks display that are exclusive to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.

Here are the details of the Halloween Party Pass courtesy of Disney:

For the 2019 not-so-spooky season, Walt Disney World Resort is introducing the new Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Pass, giving families the opportunity to experience Mickey’s-Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom Park for up to 35 nights.

For these passholders, this means more of everything they love about Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party – more nights, more special attractions and entertainment, more eerie experiences, more sweets and more family fun than any trick-or-treater could possibly imagine. For $299 per adult (plus tax) or $284 (plus tax) for children, Disney guests can get in the “spirit” of this bewitching season more than ever. Note: This pass is not valid for admission on October 31, 2019.

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a separately ticketed event that takes place after normal park hours. This year it will take place on a record number of select nights in 2019 from now through November 1. A new fireworks, projection and laser show – “Disney’s Not So Spooky Spectacular” – joins such fan favorites as “Mickey’s Boo-to-You Halloween Parade,” the “Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular” stage show, Disney characters in their finest Halloween garb and trick-or-treating throughout the park.

The frightfully festive fun also includes spellbinding décor, spooky lighting and spine-tingling music park-wide. Children are encouraged to dress in costumes, and party guests are treated to several Magic Kingdom rides and attractions tricked out in the spirit of the season just for the party.

A great value for Florida residents and families, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Pass invites guests to visit again and again for Halloween fun as only Disney can scare up. This pass is only available, in limited quantities, and can be purchased at any Walt Disney World theme park ticket window; guests with an existing event ticket can modify to a Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Season Pass by calling 407-939-4295 or visiting any Walt Disney World theme park ticket window.

Captain Hook’s Pirate Crew At Disney’s Beach Club Resort

If you have young pirate fans in your family or if you are just looking for a grown-ups night out and a fun-filled place for your little ones to spend an evening on their own, check out the new Captain Hook’s Pirate Crew at Disney’s Beach Club Resort.

Children ages 4 to 12 years old can join Captain Hook’s crew on an adventurous quest for hidden treasure. The immersive experience begins with young guests receiving official pirate names, learning pirating skills, solving puzzles, and gathering clues all on land before setting sail on the high seas of Crescent Lake aboard a pontoon boat.

All of that adventuring makes even the strongest pirate hungry, so once back on dry land, young adventurers will enjoy a hearty dinner that currently features a choice between Cannon Meatballs with Marinara or Macaroni and Gold Sauce along with a Treasure Chest Treat or fruit for dessert (menu subject to change).

Captain Hook’s Pirate Crew is priced at $55 (plus tax) per child. The experience is offered nightly from 5:00-8:30pm at Seaside Retreat in Disney’s Beach Club Resort. For more information or to book a reservation, please call 407-824-KIDS.
