Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party
If you are in Florida over the October period, and want to do something a little different then why not consider going to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party which is held at the Magic Kingdom.
You will need to buy specific tickets for the event which is held on a number of nights per week in October, as you can not stay in the park on a normal entrance ticket for these nights, however they are well worth it.
Dressing up is very much the order of the day for both children and adults alike, we found that most of the children are dressed up and about half of the adults as well. One thing to mention is that although the British view of dressing up for Halloween revolves around Ghosts & Ghouls, in America it is normal to wear things such as princess costumes for girls and super hero outfit's for boy's.
Getting hold of a costume is easy - Walmart have a vast number of different outfits and accessories in their stores at good prices so you might as well wait until you are out there before getting your costume.
When you first arrive at the Park both children and adults are provided with a trick or treat bag to carry round and a map which will show you where the trick or treat points are and what times the processions and fireworks are.
As you go round the park you will find special zones where you simply open up your bag and you will be given a handful of sweets from huge tubs that are constantly refilled (there is no restriction on how many times you go to the same zone). You could easily come away with sweets worth more than the price of your ticket, and with enough to keep you going for month's afterwards.
Many of the rides are open and it is worth arriving early as there are virtually no queues in the first hour or two, and they never become too long as there are limited numbers of people allowed in for these events. As an idea we waited 15 minutes to go onto Space Mountain which was as long as the queue got.
There are 2 processions on the night which are Halloween themed and are very good - children stand at the front if you can as you will get yet more sweets from the dancers.
You also get a special firework show which is quite spectacular - a good viewing point is the Plaza Pavilion which gives you cover in case there is any rain as well as having toilets near to hand.
We would certainly recommend that any one staying in the Disney area during October try to attend if possible.
