The Fun is Ghostly but Not Ghastly on 24 Select Nights During Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party in the Magic Kindgom with Special Savings for Advance Ticket Purchases

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – “Boo” has never been uttered in a bouncier, bubblier, “not-so-scary” fashion than during Mickey’s “Boo-to-You” Halloween parade … and ghostly apparitions never have been more wistful than they are skittering along the rooftops of Main Street, U.S.A.  When you put it together with a green and orange fireworks spectacular and Land-to-Land trick-or-treating throughout Magic Kingdom, you have a Halloween event like none other: Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

It’s enough to bring a smile to the face of a Disney villain!  And the special-ticket after-hours party on 24 select evenings between Sept. 14 and Nov. 1, 2010, at Walt Disney World Resort will do just that.  About the only one not wearing a grin is The Headless Horseman as he rides his trusty steed through the park ahead (no pun intended) of the parade.

Guests wanting to join in the spirit (no pun intended) of the party are welcome to don their favorite Halloween costumes for the 7 p.m.-to-12 midnight event. The “Boo-to-You” parade takes place at [8:15] and 10:30 p.m. and the “Happy HalloWishes” fireworks spectacular at 9:30 p.m.

In addition to trick-or-treating, meet and greets with characters and entertainment unique to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, many popular Magic Kingdom attractions – including, of course, The Haunted Mansion – are available to experience (but beware of hitchhiking ghosts).

Party dates in 2010 are:

Sept. 14, 18, 21, 23, 25, 28, 30

Oct. 1, 3, 7, 8, 11, 12, 14, 17, 19, 21, 22, 24, 26, 28, 29, 31

and Nov. 1.

Prices are $59.95 (ages 10+) and $53.95 (ages 3-9) for all dates except Oct. 29 and Oct. 31 when tickets cost $64.95 (ages 10+) and $58.95 (ages 3-9).  Advance purchase (prior to event day) savings of $6 per ticket are available for the parties on Sept. 14, 18, 21, 23, 25, 28, 30; Oct. 1, 3, 7, 11, 12, 14, 17, 19, 21, 24, 26; and Nov. 1.

Additional information is available at www.disneyworld.com/halloween.  Tickets may be purchased online or by calling 407/W-DISNEY.

    Last year, the family (7 of us) went as characters from Peter Pan.

    This year, there will be 16 of us! The “over 50” crowd is going as Mouseketeers. The 13 and under are going as the evil step-sisters, Cruella Deville, Maleficent, the Madhatter, and the Queen of Hearts. One Couple is going to be Aladdin and Jasmine, another Burt and Mary Poppins, and my husband and I will be Snow White and her Prince.

    We can’t wait!!

    I’m hoping to get a great costume together. It sounds like many adults dress up as well as the kids. Am I correct? I hope so!

    This will be our 4 time going and we always go as the same characters. I’m going as Constance, the bride in the attic from the Haunted Mansion and my fiance is going as Phineas, one of the hitchhiking ghost. We have the best time every year and we can’t wait to go this year! Speaking of which, we need to start seeing what updates we need to make to our costumes for this year!

    We’re going to MNSSHP again this year. It’s a great party and we love the parade. We’re not dressing up this year, but we love to see the other costumes – both adults and children. Some are very unique.
