Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party has been cancelled for 2020 due to COVID-19.

In a statement, Disney said:

While assessing another fall special event, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, we determined that many of its hallmarks – stage shows, parades and fireworks – are unable to take place in this new, unprecedented environment. With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

This year's Magic Kingdom party nights were to begin on August 13 and continue through to November 1. Refunds will be processed in the coming weeks for those who have already purchased tickets.

Disney is continuing to monitor the situation with regard to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party and the Epcot Festival of the Holidays, but has yet to make any decision.

Got my e-gift card refund today. Came through about 12:30 Eastern Time

Just checked my credit card and the 379 went back on today for my Halloween party tickets. That was quick!

Just like my park hopper a when I removed em today, it can take some time.

Nope, tickets were removed from MDE on Friday. I asked a few posts up if anyone has heard anything about the refunds but no replies. Mine was purchased on a GC so I want to make sure I don't overlook the E-GC that it's supposed to be refunded to...

Has anyone gotten their tickets refunded yet?

The fact that local/state officials are “trying to get a handle” on something that erupted in early March is inexcusable... National failure.

while there is increased testing, that doesn't account for all of the new cases and the increased hospitalization. the public is not following physical distancing and mask wearing. Counties are now mandating masks, and are trying to get a handle on things, but have yet to.

That’s the best joke I heard all day 🤪

In the last 2 years that I went to MNSSHP they packed people in like sardines so I can see how that would be unsafe during a pandemic.

That's why we also look at percent positive. If 10% of the population has COVID, then when you test a portion of them, you'll find that 10% are positive. If you test even more, you'll find that 10% are positive. If you test even more, you'll find that 10% are positive. If you test even more, you'll find that 10% are positive. We also see states where when testing goes up, the total numbers are still going down. We also see in states like FL that at times when testing has gone up, the number of cases have sometimes gone up, and sometimes gone down. Conversely, at times that testing has down, the number of cases have sometimes gone up, and sometimes gone down. That pretty much proves, by the fact that it exists, that the number of positive cases is not strictly correlated to the number of tests. The governors of both FL and AZ have said that their increased positive cases is NOT a result of more testing. Oh, and also all medical experts, too.

Science is diagnosing a someone with COVID. You don't know someone has COVID until tested. Therefore, when tested, numbers go up. There is no other way to diagnose COVID. Doctor's are currently seeing a lot more asymptomic cases. How do they know? Testing.

Fun fact, the younger people are the ones catching the disease at the highest rates, its the old people who are dying.

GillyanneJun 22, 2020

So steering this back towards MNSSHP... Has anyone heard any updates as to when the refunds may start? I know it's a small grain of sand in a huge beach of things going on at WDW... I paid with a GC and the email states that will be refunded on a new Electronic GC, so I just want to make sure I don't overlook it/mistake it for junk....

I think that's what you are seeing around the country. Kids taking senior trips and otherwise that generation taking the whole virus thing just a little too lightly.
