Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Takes Over Magic Kingdom for 23 Nights

One of the best kid-friendly Halloween events in Orlando is of course put on by Walt Disney World. The annual Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a fave among Disney fans.

This year, the event starts on September 11, and runs through November 2, 2012.

On select nights, the Magic Kingdom will be transformed into a family-friendly party, running from 7pm to midnight.

Guests are invited to dress up in Halloween costumes, and there will be trick-or-treating for the young. Even the Disney characters will be dressed up in their Halloween finest.

Nightly entertainment includes the twice nightly “Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade,” led by the infamous Headless Horseman (a Disney-fied version, of course, so as not to spook the kids). There will also be a nightly performance of “HalloWishes,” a green and orange fireworks display with Disney villains.

Select regular attractions and rides will also be open for guests to enjoy.
