Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Merchandise

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Merchandise – UPDATED WITH PRICES

The ability to purchase Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Merchandise is a huge perk of attending Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.

The Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Merchandise goes out promptly at 7:00pm, and is available at select locations while supplies last.

So with all this in mind if there is a certain piece of party exclusive merchandise that you would like to buy, you may want to head directly to one of the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Merchandise locations shortly after the party starts.

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Guide

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Merchandise can be found at the following locations:

  • Emporium, Main Street U.S.A – Shirts and Pins
  • Uptown Jewelers, Main Street U.S.A – Pins Only
  • Plaza del Sol Caribe Bazar, Adventureland – Shirts and Pins
  • Frontier Trading Post, Frontierland – Pins Only
  • Heritage House, Liberty Square –  Shirts and Pins
  • Fantasy Faire, Fantasyland – Shirts and Pins
  • Mickey’s Star Traders, Tomorrowland – Shirts and Pins

Once you get to the locations, you will find the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Pins on racks near the registers and the shirts will be on fixtures that will be rolled out into the store. If you get to the locations early, Cast Members are more than happy to let you know where you will be able to find the merchandise later in the night.

This year’s Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Merchandise continues last year’s trend of being more ‘spooky’ than fun, but it is nothing that is inappropriate for kids.

Another fun thing to note about this year’s Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party shirts is that their design has elements that glow in the dark, which is always fun!

Also if you are a pin collector, you will want to know that you are limited to buying two pins per location. So if you are interested in buying all the pins, you may want to consider buying the set, either framed or boxed, since you will get around the buying limit and will receive a bonus pin that you can’t buy outside of the set.

UPDATED: All of the prices shown are without tax or discount of any kind.

Happy Shopping and Haunting!!!

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party 2012 – Tips, Tricks, and Info

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party 2012 – Tips, Tricks, and Info

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, which is my most favorite party of the year at the Magic Kingdom, is now under way at the Magic Kingdom!

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Gang

I love Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party so much, because the Magic Kingdom is jam packed full of fun details, amazing entertainment, spectacular fireworks, and more importantly candy to celebrate Halloween! I am going to be sharing some of my favorite tips, tricks, and things to make sure that you do while you are at the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party!

The first thing that you are going to want to consider is when you want to attend Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, because there are certain dates that tickets can be purchased at a reduced rate if they are purchased in advance.

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party will be held on the following dates in 2012:

  • September: 18,21, 25, 28, 30
  • October: 4, 5,8, 11, 12, 14, 16, 18, 21, 22, 23, 25, 28, 30, 31
  • November: 2

And here is the price breakdown by date for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Price Breakdown

When arriving at the Magic Kingdom for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, party admission and wrist banding begins around 6:00 pm on party days, you will be directed to use one side of security and turnstiles since you will be receiving a special wrist band from Magic Kingdom Cast Members in special costumes indicating that you are attending that night’s party.

After getting your wrist band, you are going to want to grab a Halloween Treat Bag, this year featuring Frankenweenie and Wreck It Ralph, and a map for the party. One thing that I always do is bring a large purse or backpack to the party, because you will want to bring a large Ziploc bag for each member of your party to put their candy in since the more room you have in your treat bag the more candy Cast Members typically give you!

Walking into the Magic Kingdom,  you will notice that you will also be directed to one side of Main Street USA, since there will be a large group of guests leaving as you are arriving for the party. Also as Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party begins you will be asked by Cast Members to show your armband since they will be trying to clear the park of non- party going guests.

We typically arrive before the party begins, so we like to take a look at the party map and look at all there is, what people are interested in doing during the party, and we grab a bite to eat since a lot of the quick service restaurants are closed during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.

First things first, we hit the firehouse at 6:45 to get in line for our special Sorcerer’s of the Magic Kingdom card for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.  Our friends over at SOTMK Blog have great information about this card and all sorts of Sorcerer’s of the Magic Kingdom rumors and news!!!

This year we decided to break with tradition, and we hit several Trick or Treat Spots before watching the first Boo To You Parade.

Trick-or-Treat Locations can be found throughout the park, and are a really fun way to get into the Halloween spirit!

    • Next to Jungle Cruise where you’ll find some freaky tiki’s offering two treats!
    • In the Pirates of the Cairbbean queue you’ll find some candy booty!
    • Liberty Square
      • Along the waterfront in front of the Liberty Square Riverboat, you’ll be taken to a New Orleans Halloween Celebration.
      • Fantasyland
        • Before you can fly, hit the stop in Peter Pan’s Flight queue.
        • Visit Pinocchio’s Village Haus for a special treat from Werther’s.
        • The new & special stop at the Fantasyland Railroad Station is called the Casey Jr Candy Junction.

          • Near Space Mountain, there is an intergalactic treat from Kellog’s.
          • Beside Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress you will find a candy location sure to please anyone from any decade.

In addition to the Trick or Treat Spots there are two Trick-or-Treat Trails in the Magic Kingdom, which are themed and full of treats and special decorations for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.

Br’er Rabbit’s Laughin’ Place Candy Patch is my favorite, because of all the carved pumpkins!
  • Wonderland Curious Candy Way
    • For this treat trail you will want to enter from The Barnstormer in Storybook Circus, and follow the path full of decorations from Alice in Wonderland.
    • Br’er Rabit’s Laughing Place Candy Patch
      • Entering from the Splash Mountain queue, you follow this winding trail full of carved pumpkins and treats for a whole lot of candy & fun.

The Boo To You Parade, 8:15pm and 10:30pm, is by far my most absolute favorite part of the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party!!! This parade is amazing and you will find yourself singing it’s song for the many months to come!

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Boo To You Parade is a MUST DO!!!

The parade kicks off with a ride from the Headless Horseman along the parade route. And while he used togo a lot faster, this ride is definitely one you aren’t going to want to miss!

If you are watching the parade from Main Street you’ll be “Calling All The Monsters” in a Street Jam that takes place twice before the parade in front of the Art of Disney and at the Main Street Railroad Station. While this won’t be everyone’s favorite thing, if you are looking to avoid this Jam you will want to watch Boo To You from Frontierland.

Once the Boo To You parade kicks off, you will understand why I love this parade so much! It is full of characters from the movies, shorts, and parks dancing along to a fun soundtrack on special floats. The Haunted Mansion and Cowboy sections of this parade are my favorite. The parade starts next to Splash Mountain, and there are definite plusses and minuses to watching it from different locations, and my two favorite places to watch it from are near the Flag Pole on Main Street USA and the Shooting Gallery in Frontierland.

If you chose to watch Boo To You from Main Street USA near the flagpole, your pictures will have the castle in the background which is always a bonus. However, there are super bright parade lights on the top of the Confectionery that make shooting pictures and video difficult at times. Most people attending Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party will line the streets of Main Street before heading to this section, and make sure you wait for the line to go out before claiming a spot.

Right down the middle of Main Street USA

Boo To You from the Shooting Gallery in Frontierland is also an excellent spot, because you have great lighting, planters to sit on if your feet are tired, and extra entertainment since there is time to kill from the events going on in Main Street USA. The downside is that since the parade starts in this direction, people tend to line up super early and you will need to stake out a spot for great viewing sacrificing some party time.

After watching the parade, we decided to ride The Haunted Mansion to take in the special features it has during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. During the party, The Haunted Mansion Cast Members are decked out in their spookiest attire and you’ll find one on the 999 Happy Haunts is out on the lawn talking to guests. You definitely do not want to miss this attraction!!!

If Dance Parties and Character Appearances are your thing, you won’t be disappointed during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party!

There are two Dance Parties that let you take a break and shake off the sugar, while dancing with some of your favorite characters.

Club 626 was bumpin’ earlier in the evening!
  • Rock-It Out…Stitch’s Club 626 at the Rockettower Plaza Stage in Tomorrowland.
  • Woody’s Happy Harvest Roundup in The Diamond Horseshoe in Liberty Square.

And for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, you will find that your favorite Characters are in their Halloween finest and mingling among the guests in addition to their normal meet and greet areas in the park.

Then it was time for the best fireworks… Happy Hallowishes!, which begins at 9:30pm. The night sky lights up around Cinderella Castle for this 180° fireworks extravaganza! You will want to make sure that you are watching these with a castle view. If you choose to watch Happy Hallowishes from the Hub area, you will feel immersed in the show! But if you go further back on Main Street USA, you won’t be as crowded in and will be able to better see the whole show. Either way, you can’t lose!

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party
Happy Hallowishes!

After some speed Trick-Or-Treating, we decided to hit the last show of the Villains’ Dance Mix & Mingle, 7:45pm, 8:50pm, 10:05pm, and 11:15pm, in front of Cinderella Castle.  This high energy show features some of your favorite villains breaking it down and getting funky. It’s a lot of fun to watch!

And make sure that you take out those candy bags one last time before you exit the park, because outside the turnstiles there is one last Trick-Or-Treat location with Cast Members handing out Halloween Peeps.

And that was our night at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party!

It was an amazing night with amazing friends, and I hope that you will be able to use this information to make your Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party a blast!!!

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

During select nights during September and October the Magic Kingdom closes early to allow guests to enjoy Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.

And before we go any further, I have to say that Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is hands down my absolute FAVORITE event all year at Walt Disney World…so I might get a little excited about the party!

The Magic Kingdom has special lighting, effects, and decorations that transforms the Magic Kingdom into a Halloween Wonderland. Guests are also encouraged to dress up to add to the awesomeness of the party!

On top of the great atmosphere, there is soooo much to do!!!

CANDY!!!!!

Things are really festive on the dock near the Liberty Belle!

The Boo To You Parade starts with a super special ride from the Headless Horseman and ends with an absolutely amazing parade starring tons of characters from around the parks and movies. The parade steps off in Frontierland, and there are two parades at 8:15 pm and 10:30 pm. I strongly suggest going to the second parade, because it is less crowded!

It was hard to take good pictures...but here are a few that came out...

 

Tick Tock...Tick Tock...
