Tricks, Treats, Fireworks, Parade, Carriage Ride, Events and Two Months of Halloween to the Extreme.

  • May 7, 2011


Only Disney can celebrate a one-day holiday for two months, so at Walt Disney World, Halloween starts in September and runs right up to (and after) October 31. But if you and your children want to take trick-or-treating to the extreme and you (the adult) wants to dress in costume at the Magic Kingdom, then Halloween season is the holiday visit time for you.

And with any Disney celebration, there is much to do. The mainstay of the season is Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, held selected nights in the Magic Kingdom (dates announced closer to summer). Inside this event there is a special parade and special fireworks (check out the videos at the end of this post). And of course the park is fully decorated for the season, and the greatest Disney villains adorn area as characters you will just love.

But although it's Halloween, there is nothing really scary going on. So, children of all ages are invited to participate. It is a hard ticket event with various prices from $54 to $68 for adults depending on the day and whether paid in advance; and $48 to $64 for children (age 3-9). The prices and dates for 2011 are located on the Disney web site.  It's crowded in the park, but not overwhelming since this is a hard ticket event and there are only so many sold. Also, not all the attractions and features are open in the Magic Kingdom during MNSSHP. Here is an article from EasyWDW to help you make a decision about this event's extra expense.

You can expect that on All Hallow's Eve itself (and also the day before), a variety of special events are being held around the resorts and in Downtown Disney. And a special Haunted Carriage Ride in Fort Wilderness is available as well.

As we get closer to the event, A WORLD VIEW will post more information, dates, times, places and prices to help you plan for 2011 attendance. 

As a special treat, I'd like to repeat a set of videos created by a very talented young man of whom I am so envious for his talent and his history. Michael is the host of The Disney Vault. This web site has a set of wonderful videos from his trips to the “World” as well as a host of character art to download.

That’s not the best part. Last summer he interned as part of the Disney College Program at Walt Disney World and his goal in life is to work for the company. Oh how I wish I were in his shoes (the yellow ones course). Check out his site for more information about this very talented young man.

There are three: Mickey’s “Boo-To-You” Halloween Parade; Villains Mix and Mingle; and the Happy HalloWishes fireworks. Please enjoy, I know I did.

Grim grinning ghosts come out to socialize and the villains go trick-or-treating in the sky. Watch with wonder, as the sky above Cinderella's castle becomes ablaze with magic. It's a fireworks spectacular you have to see to believe. Filmed during the 2006 "Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party" at the Walt Disney World Resort.
