2019’s Mickey’s Not So Scary will feature an all-new fireworks display at Cinderella’s Castle – Disney’s Not So Spooky Spectacular!
The show is MC’ed by none other than Jack Skellington, himself and features dancing ghosts and skeletons – including classic characters (Mickey, Minnie, Pluto and Goofy), as well as all of the most sinister villains from your favorite Disney movies.
The showtime for fireworks this year is at 10:15 p.m.
- You’ll have the chance to meet all of your favorite Disney characters, with most of them dressed (of course) in their Halloween best.
Here is where you can meet the characters at Mickey’s Not So Scary:
- Mickey Mouse (at Town Square Theater)
- Jack Skellington and Sally (at Town Square Theater)
- Captain Jack Sparrow
- Aladdin and Abu (alternate with Genie & Jasmine)
- Minnie Mouse

You can boogie-down with all of your favorite characters at the dance parties taking place all around the park! It’s a super fun way for kids to burn off some energy (and gives the ability for the parents to either join in on the fun, or take a much-needed rest).
Trick or Treating
- Guests can also participate in a variety of “treat trails” throughout the park. Disney provides the bag and all you have to do is follow the inflatable yellow “treat” markers and collect as much candy as your heart desires.
- Need “allergy-friendly” options? No problem! Disney has special bags and coins for guests that have specific food allergies. You can still participate in the trails… but instead of candy, you’ll be handed a coin that you can trade-in at any of the “allergy-friendly stations” set up around the park for special treats.
What Time Does Mickey’s Not So Scary Start and End?
The park closes for regular guests at 6 p.m. and the party officially begins at 7 p.m. inside Magic Kingdom….but, Halloween party guests are allowed to enter the park starting at 4 p.m.
Pro-Tip: getting there at 4 p.m. will help you maximize the amount of activities you can participate in… so we suggest getting there as close to 4 p.m. as you can!
The party ends at midnight.
Since this event goes until late at night, many “Disney veterans” suggest staying on-property (or close to it), so you’re able to stay as late as you wish without having to worry about driving.
