On Friday, August 25th, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party kicked off at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World. One of the biggest draws to the party is meeting characters that you normally don’t get to see on an average day at the park. The park map that is given out for the party shows the location of each meet and greet, but doesn’t tell you who will be there.
Most seasoned party goers know that you need to have a plan if you really want to see some of the characters, especially the really rare ones. The lines for Jack Skellington and Sally or the Seven Dwarfs can take hours to get through. The party is only 5 hours long and waiting to meet a character for 2 hours really takes a chunk away from the evening. In addition to the characters, you still have trick or treat locations, Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade (2 showings), the Hocus Pocus Villians Spelltacular (3 shows) and of course Happy Hallowishes. Add in there the Monstrous Scream-O-Ween Ball with the Monster’s Inc. characters and you really have a lot to do within 5 hours. I didn’t even mention going on any rides while you’re there or getting the Magic Shot photos taken, listening to the Lady Carlotta or Madame Renata outside the Haunted Mansion or listening to the Cadaver Dans Barbershop Quartet. Don’t forget to pick up your Sorcerer’s of the Magic Kingdom Card also, it’s FREE! Also, you have to try some of the special desserts! Plan accordingly!
