Magic Kingdom to open early on Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party days in August

20 days ago in "Operating Hours"

Posted: Thursday July 28, 2022 11:18am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

In a recent Walt Disney World operating hours refresh, Disney has extended the operating hours at Magic Kingdom on Halloween party days.

Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party gets underway on August 12 2022, and all party dates in August have moved to an 8am opening instead of 9am. That means a 7:30am opening for resort hotel guests using Early Theme Park Entry. With an early closing at 6pm, the additional hour in the morning is a welcome change.

September 2022 still lists the regular 9am opening on party dates, but that will likely change in a future update.

Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party ticket prices range from $109 – $199, and 2022 event dates are:

  • August: 12, 16, 19, 23, 26, 30
  • September: 2, 5, 9, 11, 13, 16, 18, 20, 23, 25, 27, 29, 30
  • October: 2, 4, 6, 7, 10, 11, 13, 14, 16, 18, 20, 21, 23, 25, 27, 28, 30, 31 (sold out)

I think that list also missed a Haunted Mansion-related guy meeting out there with the ladies. Someone a hardcore fan might know the name of but I have no clue.

For the cost of the party, they better be handing out full-sized candy bars.

I thought Jack Sparrow was cut, too?

I was there yesterday and didn’t see them at all and did a ton of research for the first party and didn’t see anyone mention them.

You're right. Tarzan, Jane, and Terk have been cut.

They have some seriously great hair and make up artists for this. The three witches look just like Bette Midler , Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy.

So according to the character 'checklist' shown above, it states Tarzan and friends are appearing near the Swiss Family Treehouse. Is this actually happening? I was under the impression they had been cut from the party. -

Is there a definitive list of what characters are at M&G locations and who is signing autographs if any?
