This year, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party has been canceled, but the NEW After Hours BOO BASH event is set to bring some Halloween fun to the parks.
Earlier today, Disney released information about the dates and pricing of the BOO BASH tickets. But, just how do the price of these tickets compare to the previous price of tickets for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party? We’re breaking it down for you here!
Let’s start with a quick peek at what BOO BASH offers in comparison to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. BOO BASH will give guests the chance to see Halloween decorations, ride Disney attractions, listen to party music, and even get candy, much like Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.
But, there are a number of differences between the events. One of the biggest differences has to do with the length of the party. Mickey’s Not-So-Scary has historically run from 7PM to midnight, making it a 5-hour event. BOO BASH, on the other hand, will be a 3-hour event generally taking place on event nights from 9PM to midnight.
But 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.”
