TR: Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party 2016!

If you've been reading the forums for any length of time you'll probably know by now that out of all the Halloween events that theme parks put on throughout the season, my favorite by far is Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party! I'd have to go back and look at the timeline, but I think this year marks 15 years in a row that we have been going to the event, and we like it enough that we usually go multiple time during the season!

Last night was the first night of the event, so I wasn't going to miss out on heading down to one of my favorite parks during my favorite time of the year, Halloween! Yes, I know some people are all "What? It's only JUST September and we are celebrating Halloween already?!?!" Hey, if it were up to me, I'd be celebrating Halloween ALL YEAR LONG! So I'm totally "okay" with the event starting even earlier! ;)

We live tweeted during the event and our socials went CRAZY last night! For those of you who weren't following along live, here's a re-cap of everything that happened!

First night of Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party for 2016!

Image
I absolutely LOVE how the park is dressed up for the Halloween Party!

Image


Image
My absolute favorite theme park Halloween Event! So much fun!

Image
As soon as you enter Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party you start getting treats!

Image


Image


Image
There is a new entrance area for #MNSSHP this year! Love these characters! Basically, as you enter during the "mix-in" period of 4pm - 7pm, they direct you through the "blow off" area (just behind Main Street) that has been re-themed to Halloween and that's where you pick up your treat bag & some bonus goodies!

Image
All the characters are out in their Halloween costumes!

Image
Plenty of villains out tonight @WDWToday Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!

Image


Image
Best part of Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party? Candy! LOTS OF CANDY!!!

Was awesome running into some TPR fans from Texas @WDWToday #MNSSHP tonight! Go get lots of candy!!!

Mickeys Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is the only time adults can wear a costume @WDWToday #MagicKingdom!

Another benefit of special ticket events like #MNSSHP @WDWToday? Short wait times! 10 minutes for Space Mountain!

Image
The Haunted Mansion cast member costumes are worth it alone!

You can even Trick or Treat inside the Enchanted Tiki Room!

ProTip! Pete's Sideshow has had the shortest candy line @WDWToday Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!



And here's our "highlights" video of the entire Boo To You Parade! Check out the new Wreck-It Ralph segment starting at 3:10

OMG! Just ran into our favorite "candy girl" from last years party!

Image
Here she is handing out candy in 2015!

Image
Yes! I found the Haunted Mansion bride! (She said she'd like me to apply for the 1000th ghost! Yikes?)

Take a moment and watch this entire video! It's amazing! Especially if you are a Haunted Mansion fan!

It really is an amazing and worthwhile event due to the light crowds (and abundance of candy).

Wow what an amazing looking event! I would absolutely love to be there! Thanks for sharing it with us, so that we who live in other parts of the world also get to experience a little of the magic through our screens! :)

Where are the boxes of raisins? :)

I agree, my favorite Halloween event in Florida.
