Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party 2012

Posted in DISNEY ATTRACTIONS, DISNEY'S MAGIC KINGDOM with tags , on October 25, 2012 by disneychronicles

This past Sunday we were at one of my absolute FAV events at Magic Kingdom!

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!

This is a Halloween-themed special event held on select dates in the Magic Kingdom theme park.

Purchase of an additional event admission ticket is required. If you missed it this year I do recommend it for next year.  My boys LOVE it! ( I do recommend you bring your own bags….the ones they have are small)

They do have special events that you would not see otherwise….

Mickey’s Boo-to-You Halloween Parade (and don’t miss the headless horseman)

 

Happy Hallowishes

 

Character Dance Parties

Villains Dance Mix & Mingle

Special Disney Character Appearances in their costumes of course!

This year they also had 11 trick or treat locations, which I think is more than they had last year.

And they do load you up at the exits! I was told they must give away all the candy that they have for that specific night.

Halloween in Central Florida!

Posted in DISNEY'S MAGIC KINGDOM, EVERYTHING DISNEY with tags , , , , on September 3, 2012 by disneychronicles

My favorite holiday! Absolutely LOVE it! when else do you have an excuse to dress up as whatever you want! I also love Fall,  the leaves changing ( I absolutely miss this from living up North) pumpkins, apple cider….must I go on! I am getting nostalgic here!

So Yes, Fall or their lack of the season entirely is a little different here in Florida. Although you better believe I will find ways to still celebrate it!

On a happy note though living so close to Disney I now get to partake in Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party!

It is loads of fun! So let’s start with that.

I decided to put together a list of haunting and scary Halloween adventures in the Orlando area! So please read on….

these are only a few and there is much more…..

Magic Kingdom

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party-Yes, I consider this the “Main Event” bought my tickets and reserved my room back in June! Well I KNEW I was going!

During Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, Guests of all ages are encouraged to dress up in their favorite Halloween costumes. Even better, you can collect delicious candy as you trick-or-treat around Magic Kingdom theme park.

In addition to many favorite Disney attractions, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is filled with special entertainment, including:

  • Mickey’s “Boo-to-You” Halloween Parade—including Disney Characters and the stars of the Haunted Mansion attraction. The parade begins with a spook-tacular ride by the Headless Horseman.
  • Happy HalloWishes—a spectacular fireworks show where the Disney Villains go trick-or-treating in the sky.
  • Many favorite Disney Characters and Disney Villains in special Halloween costumes.
  • Special lighting, music and theming effects transforms special areas of Magic Kingdom theme park into happy haunted hollows.

The tone of the event is, well, “Not-So-Scary”, and is appropriate for children of all ages.

Legoland

This October, the park is debuting “Brick-or-Treat,” Legoland’s first kid-friendly Halloween celebration.

“During Brick-or-Treat, presented by Wells Fargo, Miniland USA will transform into a fun, haunted scavenger hunt for the whole family with the invasion of LEGO Monster Fighters and their enemies.”

“This thrilling family event also features trick-or-treating along the brick-or-treat trail, a kids’ four category costume contest with brick-tastic prizes and a build your own Halloween themed LEGO pumpkin model activity station. Only found at LEGOLAND Florida, families can also check out the world’s largest LEGO Jack-O-Lantern made of 26,500 LEGO bricks and capture a great photo memory.”

Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights

This is not for the WEAK!

ok, not gonna lie…absolutely petrified of doing this! Although EVERY year I say I will ….I don’t…maybe if I got a whole big group of people to go…hmmmm maybe next year! 😀

Face your deepest fears in the flesh, or what’s left of it when Halloween Horror Nights 22 invades Universal Orlando.

Can you survive a nightmarish horde of zombies from AMC’s The Walking Dead? How about the demented mind of Alice Cooper, a magic trick by Penn & Teller gone horrifically wrong, or the next dimension of terror in Silent Hill? There’s only one way to find out! Experience all-new haunted houses, scare zones, live shows and more!
Plan your escape, select nights September 21 – October 31

and then there’s…I may have to leave this one for next year also 😀

Busch Gardens Howl-O-Scream

 

Zombies will overtake Busch Gardens this year. Jill M. Revelle, Marketing Director, promises that, “Even the streets themselves aren’t safe…for zombies live here, and insatiable hordes pour forth from every shadow, hungry to show fans the most horrifying Howl-O-Scream yet.”

My 2011 Review

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party 2011

Posted in DISNEY'S MAGIC KINGDOM with tags on October 29, 2011 by disneychronicles

It was my 1st time! ……and I LOVED it!

Yes it was 90 degrees out when we started but it still felt like Halloween! and it did cool down at night! Perfection! The decorations when your walking through main street are great but that’s about it. Walking throughout the rest of the park it’s almost as if they forgot! I think that may be my only gripe!  It is very different then a regular day at the parks, you can feel the excitement in the air and the guest costumes really liven things up.  There’s a lot to do and it’s amazing how fast the time goes.

These parties restrict park attendance, so you will usually find that the attraction wait times are significantly less; however, the rides take the backseat, as the entertainment offerings are unique to only those attending the party.  The Disney characters strut their Halloween Costumes, the HalloWishes firework spectacular features perimeter fireworks and your favorite Disney Villain entertainment is FANTASTIC! The Boo To You Halloween Parade is by far my favorite parade (wait for the second showing, there’s definitely less of a crowd!)  We saw the headless horseman right before the parade started!

If you’re really into meeting characters, it’s difficult to meet all of the characters, watch the fireworks, do the Villians Dance Mix & Mingle, trick or treat AND watch both parades.  We actually didn’t do the character meets. That seemed to be where the longest lines were. I will have to come back for that for next year! Even the trick or treating was surprisingly quick. Long lines but constantly moving.

Treat wise…they did not skimp on the candy! they handed it out in handfuls! They did also sell hot Cocoa and carmel corn.

It’s these little details that make the party worth the money for us. We had a great time!

I will definitely do this again! but next year I WILL wear a costume!
