Guide to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party 2018 - Disney Halloween Party

You can't exactly feel a chill in the air here in Orlando ... but Halloween season is upon us! We attended the first Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party of the year to help you, the readers, plan ahead for a party night of your own. (OK, we may have had a TOTAL blast along the way ... but no surprise there, right?)

The party we attended not only was the very first of the season, it was also sold out AND saw the debut of new party-exclusive ride experiences. And don't think we forgot to check out this year's delish snacks.

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party Dates, Tickets & Best Days to Attend

Disney Halloween parties typically start in late August and run through early November. The parties are held in Magic Kingdom after the park closes from 7 p.m. to midnight. (New this year: The park closes at 6 p.m. for regular guests, rather than 7 p.m. in past years.) You can now purchase Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party 2018 tickets from your favorite frogs!

Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party 2018 Dates:

  • August 17, 24, 28, 31
  • September 3, 7, 9, 11, 14, 16, 18, 21, 23, 25, 28, 30
  • October 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, 11, 12, 14, 16, 18, 19, 21, 23, 25, 26, 28, 30, 31

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party tickets start at $70 for children age 3 to 9 ($74.55 with tax) or $75 for those over 10 ($79.88 with tax).

Best Dates to Attend Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party 2018

The biggest question we get for this event, as well as for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, is what the best days to attend are. These Disney Halloween parties can and do sell out, especially closer to Halloween, so we recommend purchasing tickets as soon as you know you want to attend.

Oct. 31 historically is one of the most popular dates to attend the Disney Halloween parties, along with Fridays in October, when more locals attend. Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, especially those in early September, are less popular.

Disney does not publicly release its party capacity, but we estimate that a sold-out party is around a crowd level 7 using our Crowd Calendar.

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party Costume Policy

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party 2018 - Coco Costumes

A more restrictive costume policy went into effect for the Disney Halloween party in recent years. These changes were fairly restrictive, especially for adults.

General Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party Costume Guidelines:

  • Disney may deny admission to anyone or remove anyone who is wearing attire that is considered inappropriate or could detract from other guests' experiences.
  • Guests may dress as their favorite characters, but cannot pose for pictures or sign autographs.
  • Costumes must be family-friendly and not obstructive, offensive, violent or objectionable.
  • Costumes must not contain weapons that resemble or could be mistaken for real weapons.
  • Costumes may not contain sharp or pointed objects, or materials that might strike another guest.
  • Guests who do not abide by the guidelines may be refused entry or removed unless their costumes can be modified to acceptable standards.

For guests ages 14 and up:

  • Layered costumes or costume props that surround the entire body are strongly discouraged and subject to additional security screening.
  • Costumes may not reach or drag the ground.
  • Capes should not go below the waist.
  • Themed T-shirts, shirts, sweatshirts and hats are acceptable.
  • Transparent wings, plastic light sabers, toy swords and tutus are OK. Headwear must not cover the face.
  • Masks are not allowed.

For guests ages 13 and under:

  • Costumes and some masks may be worn. Masks cannot cover the entire face, and eyes must be visible.

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party Entering Procedures

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party 2018 - Entrance Truck

The party officially begins at 7 p.m. inside Magic Kingdom. Disney Halloween party guests are allowed to enter the park starting at 4 p.m., which we recommend taking advantage of. A popular question that comes up is how Disney handles the transition between park close and the start of the party. Starting this year, the park closes for regular guests at 6 p.m., which allows cast members more time to filter out those regular day guests who will not be staying for the party. Party wristbands are given to party guests entering the park and are also distributed to those who present a valid party ticket at select locations on the park. Beginning at 6 p.m., cast members are stationed at critical points throughout the park to direct the wristband-less toward the exit.

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party 2018 - Pluto Statue

For party guests arriving just in time for the spooky festivities, you will be directed toward Market Street. (We just found out that the back alley between La Chapeau and Tony's Town Square Restaurant has a name!) This path is where you'll find those adorable Halloween character statues (like Pluto seen above), fun photo-ops complete with props AND your first treat station! Select Halloween merchandise can be purchased here as well. What a grand entrance to the party!

New Experiences for 2018

New for this year are three party-exclusive ride overlays that offer special experiences for guests. Pirates of the Caribbean, Mad Tea Party and Space Mountain transform under the moonlight for an extra special experience.

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party 2018 - Pirates of the Caribbean Overlay

Pirates of the Caribbean invites a live-action character in its queue to warn you of Gunpowder Pete, followed by a man holding a "Wanted" sign in the loading zone explaining your search for the latest pirate villain. Keep an eye out ... you might just see him pop up during your ride.

Be sure to check out Mad Tea Party after dark when it truly comes alive! Special lights and exciting, new music enhance the already spinnin' ride.

Meanwhile on Space Mountain, the lights are out! The red and blue tunnels turn pitch-black (along with all lighting effects) providing a thrilling, new ride experience with galactic rock music playing to match.

We're hoppy we took these new ride effects for a spin, but we wouldn't go out of your way unless you were already planning to ride them or they are your favorite rides and you must see the new effects. The good new is wait times are pretty short throughout the night. It's important to know that the rides don't change over until promptly 7 p.m. and only close briefly ahead of this switch for about 10 minutes tops.

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party 2018 - Haunted Mansion

While not advertised as an overlay, Haunted Mansion has some interactive ghosts floating about. They're not new, but they are super fun! These characters are residents of the Haunted Mansion ... and as the song says, the grim-grinning ghosts have come out to socialize! They share some ghost humor and stories from the mansion with guests in the outdoor queue, and on your way out of the exit. The "performance" takes place right on the Haunted Mansion lawn.

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party 2018 - Disney Junior Dance Party

Calling all tadpoles! Storybook Circus is hosting the Disney Junior Jam, featuring some of Lily's Disney Channel faves like Doc McStuffins. Lily LOVED this dance party! I’m excited to have an area dedicated to the extra little ones. It's a great way to quickly meet tadpole faves.

"Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular"

The infamous Sanderson Sisters from "Hocus Pocus" are back for another year at the Disney Halloween party! Watch out — they may put a spell on you as they conjure up the "Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular" show at the Castle Forecourt Stage. The show is held exclusively during the party and features the Sanderson Sisters, Winifred, Mary and Sarah, along with other Disney villains such as Dr. Facilier, Ooogie Boogie and Maleficent. "Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular" replaced the Villains Mix 'n' Mingle. There are typically no picture-taking opportunities with the Sanderson Sisters or the villains. The show is still a wicked good time, especially for fans of the film, and a must see at this year’s party!

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party Trick-or-Treating, Specialty Food & Merchandise

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party 2018 - Treat Bag

One of the big "treats" of the Disney Halloween Party is trick-or-treating around the park. You can haul in quite a lot of candy if that's the goal, but we prefer to enjoy the entertainment and hit a trick-or-treat trail or two as we hop around.

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party 2018 Expected Treat Locations:

Main Street, U.S.A.

  • Town Square Theater (Allergy-Friendly Center)
  • Market Street (party entrance; open until 8 p.m.)

Adventureland

  • Pirates of the Caribbean
  • Jungle Cruise

Frontierland

  • Splash Mountain
  • Dock to Tom Sawyer Island
  • Country Bear Jamboree

Liberty Square

  • Liberty Square Ticket Office (Allergy-Friendly Center)
  • Columbia Harbour House

Fantasyland

  • Pinocchio Village Haus
  • Mickey's PhilharMagic
  • Walt Disney World Railroad Station
  • Ariel's Grotto

Tomorrowland

  • Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor
  • Cosmic Ray's Starlight Café
  • Walt Disney's Carousel of Progress

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party 2018 - Hades Nachos

If the free candy doesn't quite satisfy your sweet tooth, enjoy spooktacular offerings created especially for the season. The buffalo-chicken-nacho-cheese masterpiece pictured above are Hades nachos, found at Pecos Bill's. (The Worms & Dirt found here is the perf tadpole-friendly treat too, by the way.) Right outside at Golden Oak Outpost, our winner for more amazing beverage goes to the Apple Cider Slush. So amazing and refreshing for those fall nights that feel a lot more like summer ;)

A few other party-exclusive highlights include the Hitchhiking Ghost dessert at Aloha Isle, the Oogie Boogie Meringue from Gaston's Tavern and the Muenster Smash Burger at Cosmic Ray's.

Speaking of sweets — while we, of course, advise you to save some room for treats throughout the party, we recommend grabbing a meal ahead of time. Sitting down for dinner with your tadpoles can eat up anywhere between thirty minutes to over an hour of the five-hour party time, so it's much better to enjoy a nice meal before you start partying.

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party 2018 - Ornament

If shopping is your top priority, visit the Emporium, Big Top Souvenirs for apparel, ornaments, pins and more exclusive to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. You can also find costume pieces at Curtain Call Collectibles, and tons of event pins at Frontier Trading Post. We're not overstating this — lines for exclusive merchandise can rival the lines for the characters. Items can sell out quickly if you wait until later in the night. Before you arrive at the party, decide how much time you're willing to spend to get that limited-edition pin set. If you're lucky enough to be traveling with two "grown-up" frogs, we recommend one waiting for merch while the other takes the tadpoles on a ride or two nearby.

Tips for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party 2018

As we've mentioned a time or too, Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party is one of the Frog Family's absolute favorite events! For those of you who love Halloween, it is definitely not to be missed.

Now, each of us Frog Family members has a different thing we love most about the party, so that just goes to show you there is a little something for everyone! For those of you wondering whether the party is worth the additional expense, for us, it's a resounding "Yes!" To make it the absolute best experience for your family, follow these tips:

1. Wear a costume

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party 2018 - it's a small world Costumes

While it's not required that you wear a costume, it sure adds to my enjoyment, because my favorite part of the night is taking in all of the elaborate costumes! And since this is the one event of the year where you are allowed to wear a costume at Magic Kingdom, I like to take advantage of it. And, in case you're wondering, you're never too old to enjoy Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. Note: Masks are not allowed to be worn at the Magic Kingdom, so keep this in mind when choosing your costume.

2. Keep it light

While temperatures in Orlando are cooling down a bit, the average high is 90 in September and 85 in October. It can still be quite muggy, especially after those still-frequent afternoon rains, so parents should dress their children (and themselves) accordingly for the Disney Halloween party. Think twice before outfitting your little monster as Sulley, at least a head-to-toe furry Sulley. Consider bringing a change of clothes for younger children "just in case" and picking up rain ponchos at your nearest dollar store before you leave for the trip.

3. Bring your own trick-or-treat bags

Upon entry into the park, guests will receive treat bags. That's a cool perk, but they are on the smallish side. If your children are there for the loot, consider packing extra bags. You can also purchase souvenir bags that do the trick! Trick-or-treating is Lily's favorite part of the party, but she loves saying "trick-or-treat" as much as she loves the candy. You'll find candy stations throughout the park. Save time and skip the crowds by trick-or-treating later in the evening.

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party 2018 - Treats

If you're not planning on hitting every treat spot, try visiting the unique places, such as inside of the Enchanted Tiki Room. Treats with tiki birds = extra fun! If your treat line is long, don't wait. Visit a different one, or come back later. You'll find the same candy at each one!

For allergy-friendly offerings, a teal chip is handed out at the entrance of the party. Make your way to the street behind Tony's Town Square Restaurant to pick up your chip. You'll exchange this token for a teal treat bag and special candy at the allergy-friendly locations.

4. Get to the parks early

This is the single-most important tip for maximizing your fun and justifying the cost of this separately ticketed event. While the Disney Halloween party officially starts at 7 p.m., guests can begin entering the park as early as 4 p.m. We highly recommend you get to the park early, so you can spend as much time in Magic Kingdom as possible.

When you arrive, Halloween Party attendees will be directed to a special entrance to receive wristbands. If you've already spent your day at the Magic Kingdom, you can secure your wristband from a cast member at specially designated locations throughout the park —don't worry, you can't miss the signs! Receiving your wristband is an absolute MUST-DO. Cast members are around every corner to usher non-party attendees out of the park.

5. Visit the most "in-demand" characters first

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party 2018 - Disney Halloween Party - Jack and Sally

Leap's favorite part of the party is meeting all of the characters who greet guests in different locations. "Rare" characters are out for photo-ops, and your usual favorites are wearing their best Halloween garb. Lines can get very long for the most popular characters (up to three hours or more!), so be sure to prioritize. (If you want a costume idea, check out our DIY Jack and Sally T-shirt.)

Some of the more exclusive characters (Jack & Sally, the Seven Dwarfs, and this year, Moana) may be found meeting before the party even begins, but only for Halloween party guests with wristbands. We saw Jack and Sally out as early at 6 p.m. — and there was already a three-hour wait! If you arrive at Magic Kingdom when doors "open" for Halloween Party guests at 4 p.m., we recommend heading toward the characters' designated locations and asking cast members where and when to line up. That way, you can spend valuable party time doing other fun activities!

Can't make it early? Have no fear. Our best advice is to wait until just before parade times to hop in line for character meet-and-greets. Pick one of the two parade showings to attend, and then spend the other time snapping pics with your favorite characters. Another great idea is hopping in line toward the end of the night. The park starts to empty out as families head home, so 11 p.m. is a great time to get in line.

As a time saver, try meeting characters who are joined by a friend. This may also make your tadpoles hoppier. Lily was dying to meet Jasmine, but Tad was all "whatever." Once he saw Genie join Jasmine, he hopped right in line with his sister.

The lines for characters have grown longer than in years' past. We recommend deciding as a family who your "top priority" characters are and making a game plan before you go. If a photo isn't a must, it's fun just to walk around and see the characters and their unique outfits. A majority of them meet outside, so it's easy to check them out in passing.

6. Stake out your parade location

Tad's favorite part of the party is watching Mickey's "Boo-To-You" Parade. He loves the Headless Horseman, all of the spooky floats and the characters in costume. You don't want to miss the Grandmaster's entrance — even if he is missing his head. Be sure to find a spot along the parade route at least 15 minutes in advance if you don't mind standing behind other people. If you want to be in the very front row, you should plan on staking out your spot — especially near the Castle and along Main Street U.S.A. — at least an hour ahead of time. You'll spot people snagging the best spots up to two hours ahead of time.

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party 2018 - Haunted Mansion Ghosts

Don't want to spend so much time holding your ground? We recommend viewing it in Frontierland. You can get a great spot with a much shorter notice. We found a spacious area for the family just about fifteen minutes before the parade kicked off. We love the atmosphere of Main Street U.S.A., and that's where you'll find us for the Christmas parade. Halloween is a different story. We think Frontierland fits the spooky ambiance of "Boo-to-You." Since the parade starts in Frontierland, that also means it finishes sooner. So you can hop on more rides and character meet-and-greets while the rest of the audience waits for it to finish up.

The parade happens twice nightly and kicks off in Frontierland, follows the waterway until it reaches Liberty Square, crosses the Liberty Square bridge, circles Central Plaza in front of Cinderella Castle then heads down Main Street, U.S.A., where it ends next to Harmony Barbershop. If you don't mind the kids staying up late, go to the second parade. It's usually much less crowded.

7. Make time to mingle

Favorite Disney villains make special appearances to meet and greet party guests. In the past, the villains would mix and mingle after their singing and dancing performance on the Castle Stage. This year, the Sanderson Sisters take over the stage in the "Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular," also featuring Dr. Facilier, Ooogie Boogie and Maleficent. Although these villains will not be joining the crowd for photo opportunities, the performance is worth making time to see. The lines for character meet and greets are typically a lot shorter just prior to and during parade performances, so plan to see some characters during either the first or second Boo-to-You parade.

8. Get your boogie on

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party 2018 - Sulley

It just wouldn't be a Disney Halloween party without a dance. Mike and Sulley play host to their own Monstrous Scream-O-Ween Ball on the Rockettower Plaza Stage in Tomorrowland. You can dance the night away with your favorite Monsters, Inc. employees … and the adorable Boo!

9. Don't forget HalloWishes!

The centerpiece of the night is the villainous fireworks show Happy HalloWishes! You must not miss the show, as we think it's one of the very best fireworks shows of the entire year. The very best spot for taking in the pyrotechnics is straight ahead on Main Street U.S.A. For a unique (and less crowded) perspective, check out viewing areas near Fantasyland. If you're not worried about seeing the castle, we found fantastic views of the fireworks on the Frontierland bridge, overlooking Tom Sawyer Island.

10. Don't spend too much time waiting for the ride overlays

While it's always neat to experience your favorite attraction with a twist, we didn't find any of the special Halloween party attraction experiences worth waiting too long for. The difference in the party-exclusive changes on Pirates of the Caribbean, Space Mountain and Mad Tea Party are fairly minor, so don't get your hopes up on having a toadally different experience. We wouldn't wait any longer than 20 to 30 minutes for any of these. Luckily, the wait times didn't get too crazy for any of these attractions. We anticipated excited crowds lining up, but they didn't seem to pull any longer of a line than they normally would at the party. So if you can catch a short line (like our 10-minute wait for Pirates) you should check 'em out!

Hi, This site is great. I do have a question. We are going on halloween night, and I was wondering if speed passes are allowed, and any suggestions on which rides/attractions should we hit? Time is limited and there is so much to do.

Hi Dennis,

FastPass is not available once the party starts, but ride lines should be fairly short since most people are focused on the Halloween party activities!

We have tickets for the halloween party on halloween night. Is it super busy that night? And is there anything I should try to do right away? I am taking 3 small kids with me.

Hi Tricia,

It will be one of if not the busiest party nights. I would suggest getting in line ahead of 7 p.m. (at least by 6:15 p.m.) for any high-priority character greets, particularly Jack and Sally or the Seven Dwarfs. Alternately, you could save these until the very end of the evening and spend the first few hours before the party starts eating dinner or riding rides. Plan on catching the second parade unless so that you don't have to spend too much time staking out a good viewing spot.

Best,

Mommy Frog

Just found out we will be in Orlando for Halloween. Kids (9 and 10) have never been to Disney and want to attend MNSSHP and there are no tickets available. I just saw tickets for sale on craigslist. I am actually willing to pay the amount asked but don't know how to identify whether or not the tickets are authentic. Thoughts?

great site! thank you! we are going primarily to see Princesses and entering at 4. Will they be in the Princess Fairy Tale hall from 4-7 and would a fast pass be available? or will they be there after 7? WE need to see as many as possible. Thanks!

If you only have a MNSSHP ticket, how do,you go about booking fast passes from 4-7? Can you do them online 60 days prior or that day only with what's available? We will be attending in 2015!!

Hi Emily,

You can book FastPasses from 4-7 p.m. if you have valid admission, and you would be able to do it up 60 days in advance of your check-in if you are staying on-site or up to 30 days in advance of the day you wish to enter the park if you are staying off-site.

Hi!

We are going to the Halloween party on Halloween and are planning on arriving at 4PM but are not going to any of the parks during the day so that we will not be burning one of our park ticket days. My question is that if we book any fastpasses for that day only during the 4PM-7PM free time hours will that cause us to use a day in the parks from our tickets? Want to be able to use pastpass during that day but not if it costs us an actual ticket day in the park.

Thanks!

Thank you for the loads of information!

Is there any way to still get tickets. I'm heartbroken that I didn't know this was going on. It's my daughters first trip to disney and I had no idea it was going on. It's our only day there. We'll be there for a wedding. I'm so disappointed that we can't go AND that we will have to leave the park early. We would definitely pay extra to get them. Do they sell any day of tickets? Any ticket services that sell them?

Hi Kathryn,

You can buy tickets directly from the Disney website or the day of if it is not sold out. I would recommend buying now if you for sure want to attend.

Were going to Disneyland in a couple weeks. Is it worth paying the extra money for the Mickey's Halloween party if we already have a 3 day park hopper? Or should we just skip it? We have 2 adults and 2 kids.

My family and I are planning on attending Not So Scary Disney on October 9th. We have 3 children which one is an almost 3 yr old at the end of October. Will we need to purchase a ticket for him since he's still under 3? Do we need to bring anything to prove his age? If not, will he be giving a wrist band in order to participate along with the rest of the family?

We are planning a trip for October 14th to disneyland. My kids are older (youngest is 12) and aren't that interested in the party but love the idea of staying until midnight and having shorter wait times for rides. My question is - would it be worth it to purchase a regular hopper pass for the day and also attend the party in the evening?

Reply
Sep 23, 2014 at 9:31 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Amy,

The party is a separately ticketed event. Since ride wait times are usually low for the party, that might be a good strategy even if your kids don't want to do the party activities. You would need to purchase regular park admission if you want to enter the park before 4 p.m. and then the party ticket to stay past 7 p.m.

Hi Mommy Frog, thanks a lot for all the good info! This year i'm visiting magic kingdom with my family. We are not attending the halloween party and We don't Know wich day is best to visit.

So i have some questions for you:

October 31: are the kids allowed to use costumes even if they are not attending the party?

Are they allowed to trick or treat?

Do they receive candy?

Do they have the wishes parade?

November 3th:

Are park hours back to normal?

Do they have the christmas decoration in this date?

In which of this dates would you prefer to go?

Reply
Sep 23, 2014 at 9:35 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Ana,

Small children can wear costumes to the parks, but their is only trick-or-treating at the party, and the Oct. 31 party date is sold out.

The Christmas decorations will start going up at Magic Kingdom the week of Nov. 3, but they would likely not all be up by this time.

If you are OK with shorter park hours, Magic Kingdom crowds will be lower on Oct. 31. The park is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. that day vs. 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Nov. 3.

First timer! We were planning to go to WDW for two days Oct 20 and 21. Staying the night in a Disney Resort. Taking a two year old and a three year old, after reading about this Halloween Party I'm thinking that spending Monday at the Magic Kingdom and then Tuesday afternoon/evening for party, my question is this. Can you get a late check out at any of the value resorts or is there something to keep us busy from checkout till 4pm?

Such as times for character meet and greets, their locations, fireworks, and shows. We are only going for one night and I want to make sure we get the most out of it. I know they will be available at the gate but I would like extra time to learn the map. But, on behalf of everyone, I am thankful and grateful to Disney for the extra 3 hours we can take advantage of before the party!!

NOT SO! We are ONLY attending the MNSSHP and absolutely made Fast pass+ reservations with our magic bands. BUT the catch is, they have to be between 4pm and 7pm. Most of the rides "cut off" time was actually about 6:30pm. But our family made all 3 fast pass reservations in that time slot for that day!

We will be visiting the park the week of Oct 5th and are trying to decide on the best days to do MK. The crowd number is low on 10/5, but as that is the MNSSHP night, it seems like the park will get quite busy at about 4pm. What are your thoughts on going on 10/5 for a first time visit - 3 children ages 2 1/2, 6 and 11

Reply
Sep 10, 2014 at 8:17 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Rebecca,

You all must be getting very excited!!! The 7th would be a better day in terms of crowd levels for the parks, and Magic Kingdom is recommended. You could do the 5th and have a great time too. We always recommend arriving ahead of park opening to be one of the first in the park when crowds are at their absolute lowest, but you would definitely want to do this if you visit on Oct. 5 because the park closes at 7 p.m.

There is a staggered effect on crowds starting at 4 p.m. as many people are not aware they can come that early for the party, so I would not let that stop you.

Best,

Do you find that people tend to "camp out" along the parade route? When we went for the VMCP there were people with ice chests and blanket spreads the whole night. We couldnt even get close enough to see the parade. I hope itll be better for yall with the NSSHP. Is there a difference from one party to the next...in your past experiences.

I have a Chase Disney debit card that says they offer a special meet and greet daily with characters, as well as a free souvenir photo. Do you have any experience with this? The info I found was vague. I don't know where to go or if it's truly a "members only" type of perk. Also, could the character meet and greet be void because of the special time of year? It would be awesome to not wait in long lines for pictures! Thanks for all the great info.

Hi Rhianna,

The meet and greet is at Innoventions West in Epcot, and the characters vary. Waits can also vary for this, so if they are too long, you are better off trying again later. You get a free 5x7 photo with it!

Thank you so much for these tips and videos! We went last night (Labor Day, 9/1) and we had a great time! We "dressed up" the whole day: dad in a Jack Skellington shirt and cap, mom in an Elsa running costume, teen in a Capt. America shirt, and toddler in a Buzz Lightyear short set. There were more costumed guests than not, and of course, they were fantastic (albeit probably very sweaty). It was hot and it poured during the day, but cleared up by parade time. The reserved section on the parade route for the "Villains Sinister Soiree dessert party" encompassed the entire inner circle in front of the castle, so do get your parade spot early. Definitely take a backpack or something to hold all the candy! Our first bags were full just after a few stops. They were very generous!

Also, if you want to dine in a restaurant after 5pm, you need to show your MNSSHP tickets. We ate at Be Our Guest with a short wait and were the last family to leave (6pm dining time). And definitely try the the special treats! Beast had a special "Blood Orange Cupcake" with a chocolate spider web, and we also shared a Wormy Apple slush at Gaston's Tavern - really fun! Lines for rides and characters were short, even though the park seemed pretty full. It felt a little silly saying "Happy Halloween" to everyone on Labor Day, but Disney does such a fabulous job, you will truly feel like it's Halloween!

Lastly, the monorail is on a limited service. Listen for when service stops (11:30pm last night). Have fun!

Hi Lisa,

There are candy routes, and you can go through them as many times as you would like. Anna and Elsa are there for the party, and FastPass will not be available starting at 7 p.m. on the nights of the party, so, yes, you can get in line. It's possible waits will be shorter for them than normal, since there will be other "rare" characters to meet.

Hello- We have always attended the party on a Tuesday in October about two weeks before Halloween and it has been fantastic. This year we have to go in September so our two choices are Sunday, Sept. 14th or Tuesday, Sept. 16th. I am tempted to go on the Sunday because we are FL Resident seasonal weekday passholders and otherwise would not be able to get in on Sunday. BUT if it means significantly lower crowds on Tuesday the 16th I would be rather go then. Does it matter this early in the season?

Thank you for your thoughts.
