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!
I absolutely LOVE how the park is dressed up for the Halloween Party!
My absolute favorite theme park Halloween Event! So much fun!
As soon as you enter Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party you start getting treats!
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!
All the characters are out in their Halloween costumes!
