Walt Disney World is magical at any time of year, but when the parks host special seasonal events, they become even more magical than ever. The seasonal transformations immerse guests into the festivities and offer a totally unforgettable experience. If you’re visiting Orlando between August and December you can join in the fun, at one of these amazing parties!
That’s right, tickets are now on sale for both Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party AND Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party! You’ll only find these tickets in the UK from official Disney ticket sellers like us and these events are hugely popular, so it’s a good idea to book your tickets as early as possible to avoid missing out. Want to know more about the events? Here’s what you can expect…
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party
This year, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party will begin on 17th August, running on select nights until 31st October. This amazing event is great for families as there’s lots of spooky fun, but nothing too scary.
You’ll be able to explore the park after hours and ride some of your favourite attractions in the dark! With only a limited number of guests admitted, you won’t have to worry about waiting in queues either. There will be a host of entertaining shows like the ‘Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular’ and the dazzling ‘Happy HalloWishes’ fireworks show.
The ‘Boo-to-You’ Halloween parade is a must see, so arrive early and get a good spot along Main Street USA to see some of Disney’s most notorious villains. Make sure you give them a wave as they pass by on a series of spooky floats.
Of course, it wouldn’t feel like Halloween without a bit of trick or treating and this is something that both the kids and big kids can enjoy! You’ll be given a bag when you arrive and can visit various stations throughout the park to collect as much candy as you can.

Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party
There’s no better place to celebrate the festive season and if you’re visiting Orlando during the Christmas period, we’d definitely recommend putting Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party on your must do list. Every year, the Magic Kingdom park is transformed into a winter wonderland, with stunning decorations and dazzling Christmas trees. There’s nothing like seeing the iconic Cinderella Castle glistening with hundreds of thousands of lights!
That’s not all though. There’s also an exciting entertainment line-up that you’ll never forget. Watch in awe as Queen Elsa lights up the Cinderella Castle alongside her Frozen pals in the heart-warming show ‘A Frozen Holiday Wish’. Join in the fun of ‘Mickey’s Most Merriest Celebration’ where the whole gang are out in force to celebrate. You’ll see Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy and Goofy to name just a few.
The 'Once Upon a Christmastime Parade' is full of festive cheer. See your favourite Disney characters glide through the park on a series of elaborate floats. Dancing gingerbread men and elves lead the way, as a band of toy soldiers march through Main Street. There’s music, dancing and LOTS of fun to be had. Don’t miss it!
