Disney has just announced that Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party will return to Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom in 2022.

Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party will take place across 37 nights, from August 12 through October 31, 2022. The party begins at 7pm and ends at midnight, with park entry for ticket holders from 4pm.

Tickets for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party may be purchased online or by calling 407-939-4240 beginning May 18. Guests of select Walt Disney World Resort hotels can begin purchasing tickets as early as May 12. Ticket prices will range from $109 – $199. Tickets for the canceled event in 2020 began at $85 for advance purchase, rising to $144 for October 31. Disney After Hours Boo Bash in 2021 began at $129 and went up to $199.

The event dates are:

  • August: 12, 16, 19, 23, 26, 30
  • September: 2, 5, 9, 11, 13, 16, 18, 20, 23, 25, 27, 29, 30

Walt Disney World Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club members may purchase specially priced tickets for a $10 discount on select dates.

The number of nights and date range is very similar to the event calendar in 2020 that was ultimately canceled, with this year's season having one more night (37 vs 36), and starting one day earlier.

Sounds more appropriate for Halloween Horror Nights. Speaking of HHN, given that Frequent Fear has been a thing for many years, it's odd that Disney only tried the party pass once.

Seems like with the impact of current economic conditions and possibly people being turned off by the crowds and cost of these events, Disney may have hit its upper limit with what they can squeeze out of guests. I guess they can always bring back the Halloween party pass they had a couple of years ago.

...or the Extra Special Villains Party up-charge... Which in this case would be a round-table discussion by Bob and Josh on how they're going to maximize per-guest spending in the coming year.

I'm surprised they haven't said anything about pay extra options like dessert and/or fireworks viewing.

I am hoping the higher pricetag keeps attendance low but I doubt that will happen given that Boo Bash sold like it did with far less offerings. Oh well, one can dream.

You can see all the sell out info as it happened on https://www.wdwmagic.com/events/mickeys-not-so-scary-halloween-party/news.htm :)

Or they raised capacity/the number of tickets sold per night.

I know that the first day and Halloween usually sell out first but I can't remember how early, I don't think its usually until later July/mid august but don't quote me

Is it just me, or did Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party sell out this early in the past?

Legit surprised by this. I would have expected Halloween to sell out quickly and then the cheaper parties to go quickly after that. A month and a half to sell out Halloween (and it’s the first to sell out) cannot make TDO happy.

That took...a bit. Tickets went on sale on May 12th...that's more than a month and a half for Halloween night to sell out. For the moment, that may spell good news for those of us at earlier parties.

According to the Halloween ticket availability calendar, October 31st is the first date to sell out.

Got mine at midnight. I assumed that's when they'd be out and I was correct!

MagicHappens1971May 18, 2022
