This morning Disney World released the dates for the 2020 Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party! More than that, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party tickers are on sale now! Get them while they’re hot. In this post, we’ll talk about the party dates and pricing, and how they are different from last year.
The busiest day of the year at Disney World is probably New Year’s Eve. Now granted, the entire week between Christmas and New Year’s Day is crazy busy, but we really think New Year’s Eve takes the cake. In this post, we’re going to focus on one park, in particular, Magic Kingdom. This post will serve two purposes. The first part is a guide to New Year’s Eve at Magic Kingdom which will focus on basics like park hours, activities, happenings and more. The second part of this post is more a review or trip report of our own experience at Magic Kingdom New Year’s Eve. That part will include some tips and advice we think might be helpful if you are heading to Magic Kingdom on New Year’s Eve. We’ll also sprinkle in our thoughts on New Year’s Eve at Magic Kingdom with kids, as we had Anna and Elsa with us for this particular day.
Tony’s Town Square Restaurant is located in Town Square, which is the first area you encounter when you enter the Magic Kingdom under the train station. Tony’s is located to the right, near the Town Square Theater, where Mickey and Tinkerbell have their regular meet and greets. This restaurant has existed since the Magic Kingdom opened in 1971, even though it has gone through many name changes and iterations until it became Tony’s in 1989. Here in our Tony’s Town Square Restaurant review, we’ll talk about our dining experience, including the food and ambiance.
When the Christmas season approaches, Magic Kingdom becomes a joyous holiday-themed park. In conjunction with this festive transformation, Magic Kingdom also hosts Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. It’s a hard ticket event that you have to pay for above and beyond your regular park admission. But guess what, even paying for the party doesn’t get you into everything. Oh no, there is another hard ticket event known as Tony’s Most Merriest Town Square Party.
As the temperatures at Disney World drop and the holidays approach, Magic Kingdom enters the best time of year. At least in our opinion. The Christmas décor, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, and pleasant temperatures are just a few of the things that make this time of year special. One of the other things we love are the holiday treats and snacks at Magic Kingdom. While these have a more Christmas treat feel to them, they are actually available in early November all the way through early January.
Tucked inside of Liberty Square at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom is a quaint, but not a quiet quick service location known as Sleepy Hollow. Located just over the bridge to the left of Cinderella Castle, this “refreshment” stand sees lots of foot traffic. Here in our Sleepy Hollow review, we’ll give you our thoughts on the food and a little background on this Disney World restaurant.
When Halloween approaches at Magic Kingdom, you can rest assured of two things. That would be the start of Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and some fun Halloween snacks and desserts. I’d say that you can also count on increased prices from the prior years, but that would be a bit of a bummer view on things…oops. Here in our guide to Halloween Snacks and Desserts at Magic Kingdom, we’ll cover all the different Halloween treats you will find.
Each night, during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, Disney World offers an additional up charge event known as Cruella’s Halloween Hide-A-Way Party. During our recent trip to Disney World, we decided to stop by the event and check it out. Or should I say, I decided to stop by. Carla and I did not bring Anna and Elsa for reasons we’ll discuss as we go through our Cruella’s Halloween Hide-A-Way Party review.
It’s hard to believe that we are now less than 30 days away from the return of Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. Part of that disbelief on our part is that the year is flying by. The other part of it is that Disney has somehow deemed mid-August the right time to start the parties. How better to kick fall off than by torturing cast members and guests alike by making them dress up in Halloween costumes while it is sweltering hot! But I digress.
Disney dropped more Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party details this week (link), so we thought it was time to round up all we know. Disney previously announced that they were making some changes to the party and I guess at the 30 days out mark it was time for them to release some more details. Let’s round up what we know, and maybe we’ll speculate about the party a little bit!
This summer Disney World started a new after hours hard ticket event. Known as “Villains After Hours”, this event features many similarities to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, but with notable (and generally better) differences. I stayed for the party recently to see what it was all about, and in general I have to say I was pleasantly surprised! Here in our Villains After Hours at Magic Kingdom review, I’ll give you all the details on what is offered, the unique food available during the party, along with my thoughts on its strengths and weaknesses.
