Slow sales of tickets to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party this year have prompted a new pilot program that aims to get guests staying at Magic Kingdom area resorts to buy more tickets. So far, the 2019 edition of the Halloween party has sold out three dates, which is about average for this time of year. That said, sales have been considered slow enough for Disney to add salesman kiosks at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort in an effort to sell more tickets. The resorts targeted not only have higher average per night rates than other hotels around property, they are also conveniently located, connected to Magic Kingdom via the monorail system.
According to Cast Members we spoke with at the kiosks, this is a limited-time pilot program to see if they can sell more tickets to guests at the three area resorts. In addition to the kiosks, there are child-sized, walk-in photo ops near the kiosks and a-frame advertisements at the bus stops.
We also spotted an advertisement for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort near the quick-service queue.
