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.

They're going to charge more no matter what they do. They could drop the Halloween cavalcades and still end up charging an extra $25/person if they thought they could get away with it. As outrageous as the price is for Very Merriest, I think paying $150 or so for what was basically Evening EMH was a bigger rip off.

Merriest certainly cost more.

Animaniac93-98Nov 09, 2021

There's no defending Boo Bash 2021 after tonight. Very Merriest is clearly a real party, despite the After Hours branding. If they do Boo Bash again it needs to be much better. There should be no holiday double-standard.

Thank you for the "lightning" fast response. :) We just changed our dates to October 14th-20th next year and we want to do the MNSSHP but maybe not Boo Bash.

I would bet that the new price point is a permanent replacement. You can't have More Magic and More Di$ney without $.

Has it been determined that this will be a permanent replacement for MNSSHP?

Exactly what we said! No genie reservations, no lightning lanes. Come in late, maybe grab a bite or catch a show, watch fireworks and then just be able to walk around and ride the rides and the parks without the huge crowds. Could make even more $ if they went "adult" after fireworks and started selling cocktails in the parks. Unfortunately I got hit for the park pass w/ hopper and then additional for boo bash this time.

If WDW did this for each park taking turns... I'd probably wouldn't buy any day tickets for most of my trip... maybe one day-ticket with a hopper to catch some shows that don't show at night. Sleep in. Catch all the long-line rides with almost no wait in the cool of the night. Yeah... I'm in.

Went last friday night 10/15. It was much more crowded than we expected but not over-crowded. Longer than expected lines for included snacks/beverages for the 1st hour then you could walk right up. Our group of 9 was able to ride Space mountain (twice), astro orbiter, Buzz's Star command, Prates of the Carib, Big Thunder Mountain, Splash mountain & the Haunted Mansion. All while stopping at the Trick or Treat spots that didnt have long lines (some did). The 2 cavalcades were few & far between and if there was anything at the castle we missed it. Other than the normal fall decorations there was nothing extra done. Pros: Short waits and some "free snacks" Cons: A lot Extra $$$, should run later, needs more theming (castle & main street projections would be good) & more cavalcades. The longest wait was the bus ride back to our resort (just over an hour) because they are running a lot of coach buses that have no standing and cant move as many people. I think I would like it if WDW did something like this every night at a different park - perhaps discounted for resort guests. We are night owls and would gladly pay for lower crowd level evenings. Stay at the resorts for the day then head to the parks. Imagine a relaxing WDW vacation...

As long as it’s not “Come Sail Away.” Now, we can talk “Mr. Roboto!”

wdwmagicOct 18, 2021

If only WDW has thousands of entertainment CMs waiting to return to their roles that could provide some proper entertainment. Oh hang on..

If only there were such a thing . . .
