Disney After Hours BOO BASH
Posted: Wednesday June 2, 2021 9:40am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Disney has today announced pricing, booking dates and more details of entertainment offerings for the upcoming 'Disney After Hours Boo Bash' ticketed event at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom. 

Pricing remains similar to previous Disney After Hours events, which were typically around $150. It is however significantly more expensive than Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween party, where tickets began at $85. As expected, fireworks have not yet been announced for the event, but this may change as COVID-19 restrictions continue to be relaxed and a return of Walt Disney World's fireworks remains a real possibility for the summer.

Pricing for “Disney After Hours Boo Bash”

Tickets for the three-hour Halloween event will go on sale June 15 and can be purchased online or by calling 407-939-4240. Guests of select Walt Disney World Resort hotels will be able to book their tickets as early as June 8. Tickets start at $129 – $139, plus tax for August/September nights and $159 – $169, plus tax for October nights, and $199, plus tax for Halloween. Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club Members can take advantage of a $10 discount for event nights in August and September.

Entertainment for “Disney After Hours Boo Bash”

Entertainment will include special cavalcades full of characters popping up throughout the night including “Mickey’s Happy Halloween Cavalcade” featuring Mickey Mouse and friends dressed for the occasion. In the “Disney Villains Halloween Cavalcade,” villains will take to the street and celebrate their favorite time of the year. “Jack’s Nightmare Cavalcade” will feature Jack Skellington, Sally and Oogie Boogie riding down the parade path to “This Is Halloween.” Maleficent will also make an appearance in the form of a fire-breathing dragon.

Character appearances will include Miss Carlotta at the Haunted Mansion, Goofy, Foulfellow, Gideon, Chip ‘n’ Dale in their Halloween best, with other surprise guests spotted across the park. Guests can also stop and listen to the Cadaver Dans during performances on Main Street, U.S.A.

Complimentary snacks such as ice cream novelties and popcorn, along with select beverages are included in event admission.

Complimentary candy will be available while trick-or-treating around the park.

20 attractions will be available including Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Haunted Mansion attraction, Jungle Cruise, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Peter Pan’s Flight, Space Mountain and more.

Disney After Hours Boo Bash is a limited-capacity and separately ticketed event that does not require an additional day’s theme park ticket or Disney Park Pass reservation. Tickets will grant admission to Magic Kingdom as early as 7pm before the event begins.

Halloween can’t occur if we are standing above the debt ceiling. FYI the remaining Mickey pumpkin wreaths were removed last night.

For us that's fine, we've seen then so many times. Looking forward to seeing the carriages!

About those Mickey pumpkins…apparently they’re gone until at least 2023.

Are the resort boats running at the end of the event for guests at Wilderness Lodge, Poly, and Grand Floridian?

My .02: I have never done a MNSSHP, but several MVMCP. I attended the Boo Bash last Friday (9/10). I had a great time, enjoyed the short waits, and the free snacks (I honestly think I did eat $139 worth of ice cream sandwiches ;)). I saw Maleficent roll through Liberty Square, and did see the Mickey and Minnie cavalcade. I trick or treated at the goodie stations. I got the hitchhiking ghost and headless horsemen magic shots. Like I said - I had fun. But I doubt I will do it again next year. This truly was an after hours event with a nod towards Halloween, which was my expectations going in, and they were met. Now if they add some more Halloween to it, I might be tempted. But I get enough of the parks using my @lentesta plans during the day I don't really need an after hours event. FWIW - no way would I pay what they are asking for the Holiday AH event. Even though it appears to be more holiday than AH, I have 'been there done that' with MVMCP to justify spending what they are asking for this year.

Do we know if tickets have continued to be available the day of for each of the parties?

I actually did last Sunday’s Boo Bash, even though the previous week’s crowds were extremely low. I’m much more of a ride and ambience person at the parks. Entertainment is great, but not something I usually go out of my way to catch. With that preface in mind, I had an excellent time at Boo Bash. MK at night is spectacular. I got to the park around 7:30. I kept track, and was able to get on 17 rides from 7:30-midnight. To me, it was nice to see a bit of entertainment here and there. IMO, the biggest negative was the odd dance-party music choices. Was it worth the money? Well, the three ice cream bars and 4 sodas I consumed have an in park value of about $3,765, so that’s a positive. But, at the end of the day, it was worth it to me. Of course, this was a last minute splurge since I changed from on to offsite (since there was almost no incentive to stay onsite). At the end of the day, Disney got a lot less of my money this trip. I’m not sure that’s their intent. My single biggest issue with it continues to be the fact that I used to be able to have a similar experience without paying extra for it. When MK was routinely open until 1am, the park cleared out fairly soon after fireworks. The experience was almost identical to Boo Bash (minus the “free” ice cream and soda). But, that time is past. Disney has learned they can get folks (oh, sorry, I mean “friends”) to pay twice. Such is life.

Check out the Simpson's episode with Homer sailing down the River Styx in the underworld to the song Lady. "Ohhh, this truly is hell!"

I didn't suppose you were looking for gloom. My point is simply that the most probably cause for no reports is because no one had complaints. That and the reduced capacity meant a lot less people actually experiencing it. There were livestreams from the usual suspects for the first few BOOdahs.

We'll be there on 10/24. We already know the music will be scary.
