Happy Halloween! Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party has begun at the Magic Kingdom, and this year the Trick-or-Treat allergy friendly experience has changed.
Partygoers who have food allergies or dietary restrictions are encouraged to first visit one of the two Allergy-Friendly Centers that can be found at the lobby of the Town Square Theater on Main Street U.S.A. and at the Heritage House in Liberty Square.
Inside of each of these locations you can speak with trained Cast Members about what your candy options will be based on your allergies and dietary restrictions, learn about the Trick-or-Treat experience, and receive a special teal treat bag (if you would like) that makes you more recognizable to Cast Members.
Now that you know your options it is time to go trick-or-treating! As you travel throughout the Magic Kingdom during the party, look for Cast Members at each treat location with either a teal bag or treat sign and ask them for a token. Keep in mind that the trade in value on tokens is one-for-one at the Allergy-Friendly Center.
Now that you’ve got your tokens it is time to head back to an allergy-friendly center to trade in your tokens!
Here is a closer look at the different treats, both candies and non-food items, available on the allergy-friendly assistance menu:
Although not listed on the menu, there are also sugar free treats available at the centers.
Keep in mind that they Allergy-Friendly Centers should close with the party, so don’t count on being able to trade your tokens in after the party has ended.
Tips for making the most of your Allergy-Friendly Trick-or-Treating at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party:
- Make sure to visit one of the two Allergy-Friendly Centers as soon as they open! While the party officially begins at 7 pm, these stations **could** open earlier if Cast Members are there and the area is all set-up.
- Don’t be shy! Talk the cast members who have the allergy friendly treat tokens! They want you to have as much fun as everyone else, so don’t feel out of place asking them for one…or two! 😉
- Lines to redeem your tokens can be quite long, so an ideal time to visit one of the Allergy-Friendly Centers is when other major party activities (like the second Mickey’s Boo To You Parade) are under way.
- There’s no limit on how many times you can visit a candy stop! So don’t feel bad for getting back in line to go through again if the line is shorter than you expect.
