LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – There are more nights and new reasons to celebrate the spooky season this year during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. This special-ticket event runs select nights Aug. 17-Oct. 31, 2018, at Magic Kingdom Park – the earliest it has ever started.



New twists and treats this year include:

--On Pirates of the Caribbean, new pirates invade the experience, interacting with sailing guests who will join the search for Gunpowder Pete.

--The Mad Tea Party will take guests on a colorful teacup ride, as special lighting and other effects put a glowing new spin on the night.

--Explorers visiting Space Mountain will hurtle through deep space, as a new soundtrack and more transform the adventure.

--Storybook Circus welcomes the Storybook Circus Disney Junior Jam, a dance party featuring favorite Disney Junior Characters, including Doc McStuffins.

This year also marks the 25th anniversary of Walt Disney Pictures’ “Hocus Pocus.” What better way to celebrate the film than with the spellbinding Hocus Pocus Villain Spectacular on the Cinderella Castle Forecourt stage where the Sanderson Sisters will “put a spell on you.”

As always, guests should keep their eyes open for dancing ghosts, the Headless Horseman, plus Mickey Mouse, Peter Pan and many more beloved Disney Characters in the Mickey’s “Boo-To-You” Halloween Parade. There will also be plenty of sweets around the park for all trick-or-treaters, including allergy-friendly options. And each night during the party, the skies above an eerily lit Cinderella Castle come alive during Happy HalloWishes, a magical fireworks extravaganza that definitely goes bump in the night!

Advance tickets start at $75 for adults and $70 for children ages 3-9 (plus tax). For a full list of event dates, visit MickeyHalloween.com. Guests are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance, as space each night is limited. For more information, call (407) WDISNEY (934-7639). Attached Images

Favorite photopass picture?

intercot.com - 13 hours 13 min ago
The questions about whether photopass was worth it or not got me to thinking - what is your favorite photopass picture (not ride)? Several years ago, my ex-boyfriend and I went to Disney World for his birthday. At DHS, the photographer in front of Tower of Terror told us to look scared. My ex-bf looks like he is begging God for his life while he's about to pee his pants. It makes me laugh every time I look at it.

Missing Strmchsr

intercot.com - Fri, 2018-07-20 15:20
I know he's been gone for a while now and although I did not know Chris (Strmchsr) personally, I find I miss him regularly.

His contribution/service/ministry to this site was immeasurable.

My daughter is moving to FL for the DCP (Fall 2018) and I find myself wishing I could check-in/follow Strmchsr as we are heading into the peak of hurricane season.

Miss you, Chris and so appreciate your kindness and generosity as you kept us all informed.

Child swap

intercot.com - Thu, 2018-07-19 21:07
I think I remember reading on here that Disney is modifying their child swap policy. Can anyone tell me how it currently works with fastpass and child swap. Does the entire party need a fast pass reservation when doing child swap, or is it only the first group to go through the line - then the second part of the group uses child swap, not fastpasses, to go through the line (as it used to be)?

Thanks!
