Tickets for Walt Disney World’s Not-So-Scary-Halloween Party are on sale and tickets for Mickey’s Halloween Party at Disneyland will go on sale soon. Use this guide to Disney Halloween party planning for your spooktacular trip! 

 

Don’t be scared; go ahead and buy your tickets to the Disney Halloween party of your choice right away!

I’ve been to both Disney Halloween parties on each coast and had a boo-tiful time. (see what I did there?)

Both the Mickey’s No-so-scary Halloween Party at Disney World and Mickey’s Halloween party at Disneyland are a total blast and if you do it right, worth the added costs!

 

 

You should head to Walt Disney World or Disneyland in the fall. Why? This Guide to Halloween Time at the Disney parks reveals all! No tricks, just treats! It's not-so-scary and extra magical!

 

Planning tip: if you’ve never made it to Disneyland and have a love of Jack & Sally: mid-September to early January is when you want to visit!

That’s right: don’t blink, folks; Halloween is just around the corner.

If you’re like me, you might be making plans to celebrate the season in style with a visit to a Disney Park. I’m actually managing to sneak in a trip to both coasts in October and can’t wait to see the new offerings for 2017 Halloween Time at the Disney parks!

If you go east to Walt Disney World or west to Disneyland, you’ll be in for a spooktacular treat. Especially if you hit up one of the special ticketed Halloween parties offered at each park.

Plan to Wear a Costume at Your Disney Halloween Party

You know I’m a big fan of wearing costumes whenever I can! At Disney Halloween parties: adults totally can wear costumes.

To steal a phrase from my favorite Marvel movie

Avengers: Assemble!

I love group Disney Halloween costumes for adults like this one.

 

Disney Halloween Party costumes for adults: Marvel Avengers

 

Inquisitive TravelingMom Amy says costumes are good, but not passing out is even better. Wait – what? Check her tips out here. 

Twin TravelingMom Sarah went with her whole family, and nailed the costume game! You’ll have all the feels with this recap.

And if full on dressing in a costume isn’t your style, please run over to Etsy to check out some of the Disney Halloween shirt options.

There are some fab small businesses making adorable options for your next Disney Halloween party!

 

The Disney Halloween party time period is a fantastic time to enjoy the parks and all that Disney has to offer.

With special events, characters, the chance for adults to dress in costume and delicious treats, you know it will be a Halloween your family will remember forever.

Boo to you!
