We are halfway to Halloween and have just received some HUGE Disney Halloween news!
Last year, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and we’ve wondered for months whether it would return this year. And now we’ve got our answer!
Earlier today, Disney announced a NEW Halloween-themed after hours event that will take the place of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party this year!! The new event is called “Disney After Hours BOO BASH.“
The 3-hour event will take place at Magic Kingdom park. According to Disney, the event will feature party music, Halloween decorations, Disney attractions, and “oh-so-eerie entertainment.”
There will also be Halloween-themed cavalcades and candy stops throughout the park. Spooktacular characters like Dr. Facilier and Captain Barbosa will make an appearance in the park, and classic characters like Goofy and Chip ‘n’ Dale will also be around.
The Cadaver Dans will also perform during the After Hours event. Guests can look forward to enjoying a number of “themed offerings, from sweet treats to savory delights.” And more than 20 rides will also be open for guests to enjoy including the Haunted Mansion, Space Mountain, and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.
And, according to Disney, “Guests young, old and immortal can don a costume for the occasion.” Just be sure to review Disney’s dress code and costume guidelines before attending.
Disney After Hours BOO BASH will take place on select nights from August 10th through October 31st.
Tickets for this event will go on sale NEXT MONTH. There will, however, be an early purchase window available for guests of select Walt Disney World Resort hotels.
According to Disney, “Disney After Hours BOO BASH tickets will grant admission to Magic Kingdom park as early as 7:00 PM without the need for a day park ticket or Disney Park Pass theme park reservation.”
The event will technically begin, however, at 9PM and will last from 9PM to midnight each night it is offered. Some event nights in August and September will actually be from 9:30PM to 12:30AM.
