Taking Kids to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party
You may think Disney is all sunshine and rainbows, but it does have its dark side. After all, there’s that whole scene with Bambi’s mother. (I’ll wait while you grab some tissues.) So while Disney certainly has its wholesome, cheery side for the little ones, there’s still just enough of a spook factor to keep older kids — and adults — entertained at Halloween. That’s why they host the annual Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, instead of the Not-Scary-At-All Party. No matter what the age, everyone can enjoy the Halloween festivities. Book one of the Fantasy World vacation villas in Kissimmee Florida today to take advantage of this spooktacular party.
The party is an after-hours, separate ticket event at Magic Kingdom. It takes place from 7 p.m. to midnight on multiple nights from now through November 1. As well as enjoying some of the regular rides, there are special spooky productions, as well as a Halloween-themed parade. In addition, there are plenty of chances to get candy, see characters, enjoy the fireworks, and find just the right level of spookiness for everyone in the family.
Ideally, let your children figure out if they want to try a ride or meet a character. Some children will thrill to the Haunted House, while others will find Space Mountain too scary, and vice versa. You know your children’s threshold the best.
Among the special events and performances are the Happy HalloWishes Fireworks, Cadaver Dan’s Barbershop Quartet, and the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular stage show with the Sanderson Sisters, as well as other baddies, such as Maleficent and Oogie Boogie. The parade is one of the highlights, though, with a who’s-who of Disney villains, with floats featuring spooks, ghouls, and all sorts of ne’er-do-wells who are well-known and sometimes even well-loved.
You’ll find plenty of characters on hand for meet-and-greets, including the Pumpkin King Jack Skellington, from The Nightmare Before Christmas. However, this is also an opportunity for visitors to dress up in their own character costumes, though there are certain rules, such as no full masks for children 13 and under and no masks at all for anyone 14 and over. Light sabers, however, are allowed. Be sure to check the official website for all of the costume rules. The Fantasy World vacation villas in Kissimmee Florida are a great place to stay, since they provide plenty of room for the whole family to get dressed up in their favorite costumes.
These are just a few of the festivities taking place at this unusual party. There’s also the separate Happy HalloWishes Dessert Party, as well as the Goofy candy machine that rides along the parade route handing out lollipops, and plenty of other ways to get all sorts of sweet treats and fun memories.
So no matter what age your children are, there are plenty of activities to enjoy at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, whether you just want fun or at least a little bit of a fright!Tags: Kissimmee Condo, Orlando Vacation Packages, resort Orlando vacation
