Summer is about to awaken across Walt Disney World Resort, but I’m already dreaming of fall and fun-filled special event nights at Magic Kingdom Park.

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party returns for 29 nights of spook-tastic fun, starting September 2 and featuring encore performances of last year’s new hit show “Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular.”

And this year, the team that brought the Sanderson Sisters back for Halloween is hard at work on another new show for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. “Mickey’s Most Merriest Celebration” will make its debut for the 2016 holiday season. In this all-new show, Mickey and his pals invite some of their friends over for an unforgettable Christmas party filled with music, dancing, color and fun. Look for Woody and Jessie from “Toy Story,” Fantasyland friends such as Peter Pan and Snow White, and many more!

Featuring medleys of delightful holiday songs both classic and contemporary, along with special effects, magical projections and beloved Disney characters, “Mickey’s Most Merriest Celebration” will be presented on the Cinderella Castle Forecourt Stage on nights when Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is offered, November 7 to December 22, 2016.

Charles recently shared all the dates for 2016’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, and I can tell you tickets for both events are on sale now.

  • Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party – Advance ticket prices starting at $72 for adults and $67 for children (3-9).
  • Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party – Advance ticket prices starting at $86 for adults and $81 for children (3-9).

For more information and to order tickets, head to, call 407-W-DISNEY or contact your travel agent. You’ll want to get those tickets early, because certain popular dates may sell out fast. Once you have an event ticket for a Halloween party night, you can go ahead and make reservations for dinner at a great place like Be Our Guest Restaurant or Cinderella’s Royal Table, or arrange for a premium dessert party package for “Happy HalloWishes” fireworks. Reservations for Christmas party nights will be available later.

And if you’re thinking about dressing up for the party, please be sure to check out the costume guidelines before you go.
