Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party

Rachael Hajec, Editor

Since it is early November and most kids are still eating all their Halloween candy, I figured I would talk about my favorite trick-or-treating experience that took place in Walt Disney World! Every once in a while my family and I plan a Disney vacation. As a child, I always loved Disney Channel, Disney movies, Mickey Mouse, and especially all the princesses and fairy tale stories that came with it. The first time I ever went, my cousin, (who has been there more times than I can count), planned the trip with my mom, brother, and I around March of 2015. It goes without saying we loved it so much, we decided to go back in October of 2016.

Every year around Halloween, Disney World holds a special trick-or-treating event called Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. When you walk into Magic Kingdom they give you a map of all the different spots where you can get the candy, and at every spot there was a villain waiting for you to arrive, villains like Jafar, the Evil Queen, Cruella Deville, and so much more. Since we were all so excited to meet all the villains and get loads of candy, my family and I decided to dress up in matching outfits. My cousin had ordered matching pumpkin shirts, and even made homemade orange and black tutus.

With all of the constant celebrations and people arriving, Disney World sets up their Halloween decorations as early as September 15. Also, November and December appear to be their busiest times of the year because of Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. If you love all three of those holidays as much as I do, and you are given the chance to go to Walt Disney World in Florida, I highly recommend trick-or-treating, eating, and/or Christmas caroling there. And, if all things Disney made up your childhood like it did mine, you will thank me later. Dreams do come true.
