Magic Kingdom's 2024 Not-So-Spooky Spectacular Dessert Party: Here's What It Costs and What to Expect

May 08, 2024 in "Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party"

Posted: Wednesday May 8, 2024 7:21am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

During Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom from August 9 through October 31, 2024, guests can choose between two dessert party experiences, both offering a selection of sweets like chocolate-dipped strawberries and s'mores cups, along with cheeses and beverages including beer and wine.

The first option, Disney's Not-So-Spooky Spectacular Dessert Party with Plaza Garden Viewing, is held at the Tomorrowland Terrace Restaurant but includes viewing the fireworks from a standing location in the Plaza Garden, offering an unobstructed view of the castle for $99 for guests ages 10 and up, and $59 for children 3 to 9. This option requires guests to check in 1.5 hours before the fireworks and involves moving from the dining area to the viewing location. The second option, at the Tomorrowland Terrace, allows guests to dine and watch the fireworks from the same spot for $119 for adults and $75 for children, with a check-in time one hour before the fireworks. Both require a separate admission ticket to the Halloween party itself, not included in the dessert party price.

Reservations are not yet available, but full details of both Disney's Not-So-Spooky Spectacular Dessert Party options are below:

I won't use the laughing reaction to the actual post, because I'm not laughing at you, but that's friggin' hilarious. You'd think a multi-billion dollar global media behemoth would have an IT staff with a clue. Oops.

So much for the much vaunted "shift" in the reservations for the dessert parties during MNSSHP. Didnt go live until after 8 this morning and then only for dates up until the end of August.

A minor procedural question: Do you have to have tickets already purchased to the party in order to be able to book a dining reservation during the party? Or are those completely separate things?

I've paid enough for the party ticket, I'm not paying that much extra for a desserts party.

It's still listed on the Mickey's-Not-So-Scary Halloween Party website, but the link about Table Service restaurants is broken and there's currently nothing listed on Cinderella's Royal Table web page about the party. 🤷‍♂️

No Cinderella's Royal Table this year?

It's worse than that... with no discount for party day tickets, reduced ride availability during the party, and the party ticket price easily equivalent to or higher than a normal single-day ticket, they're practically doubling admission income with essentially no increase in labor expenses. Conceded: a few more hours of electricity and water, but they don't take the park off the grid overnight anyway.

We got in at $69/person for the after-fireworks dessert party in 2019, just days before they hiked the price to $84/person. That was steep enough then, and like I said, we couldn't eat enough to justify the cost. Of course, I remember buying Mickey Ice Cream Bars for my wife and I plus 2 of our 3 kids (at the time) for about $12, back in I want to say 2007 (and we did it a year or two earlier as well), and watching Wishes! from the Tomorrowland Terrace seating area facing the castle for free. Which is why I have no problem pointing out to people that Disney is, in fact, charging for things that used to be free.

I remember when my kids were 2, they were free and the party was $30 (!) Hard to believe it was that cheap 9 years ago. It was worth $60 to us. I could never imagine spending $500. Different strokes, I guess.

Dessert parties aren't worth the money when it's a regular park day - You are paying upwards of $100/person for average (at best) desserts you can't possibly eat enough of to justify the cost (The 6 of us tried, in the before-times, at a lower price point, still couldn't do it). During a party? I won't say it's dumb to do them, but... you have far more money than brains if you do.

That's what I thought. I'm not terribly upset about missing out. I'm looking at going on Sunday 10/27 as I have the Pixie Dust pass and can't be in MK during regular admission that day.
