Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Tickets and Event Information 2011

Orlando, FL. ~ So you want to take the kids out trick or treating and you don’t want to scare them so bad that they will be sleeping with you for years to come. Well there’s good news for you! Every year over at Walt Disney World’s, Magic Kingdom park, Mickey put on a very special Halloween party geared for the smaller trick or treat-er in the family. The great thing about this party is that the Magic Kingdom lets you dress up as your favorite Halloween character and grab goodies along with your little ones. This is also a very special time to enjoy the park as they put on a special parade and fireworks show to celebrate Halloween Disney style. During select dates, the Magic Kingdom will close down its park to the daily visitors and then reopen to the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party ticket holders. I have been there and it is like having the park to yourself. On average the Magic Kingdom holds 85 thousand people, but on these Halloween party nights, there might be only 10 thousand guests or even less. Now that’s my kind of visit. With this small of a crowd, lines to all of the rides are nothing and candy is plenty. Don’t forget to stay and watch the Headless Horseman ride down Main Street USA and afterwards, the very special and spooky Cinderella Castle firework shoot. This party is a must do if your are going to be visiting during this celebration. If you plan to go and need Mickey’s Halloween Party tickets, please call our office toll free at 1-877-406-4836 for pricing and information.
