Guests looking to plan their fall visits to Walt Disney World are a bit in the dark right now as it relates to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Of course, Disney allows guests to plan up to 180 days in advance of their visit, but last year guests were treated to extra early planning when Disney announced the sale of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party tickets on January 15, 2019.
Last year was a bit of an outlier in recent memory for the announcement of ticket sales. Typically they are announced a bit further in the spring. Here’s a look at recent “on sale” dates:
- 2019 – January 15th
- 2018 – March 19th
- 2017 – May 10th
- 2016 – March 23rd
- 2015 – April 8th
- 2014 – May 16th
- 2013 – May 8th
By announcing the ticket sales so early last year, Disney has left many guests wondering when tickets would go on sale for the 2020 event. While we don’t have that answer just yet, we can predict the actual dates for the event based on early closures on the Magic Kingdom calendar.
If you’ve ever attended a Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party or even done planning for one, you know that Magic Kingdom closes at 6pm to day guests and the party starts for the hard-ticket Not-So-Scary event. By using that 6pm close, we can look at the Magic Kingdom calendar and try to predict when Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party will take place. As of publish time, dates are available on internal calendars through the end of September. Here are the 6pm closes:
- August 13, 18, 21, 25, 28
- September 1, 4, 7, 11, 13, 15, 18, 20, 22, 25, 27, 29
Of course, this information is simply meant to be a planning guide, and shouldn’t be treated as official until Disney releases the Not-So-Scary dates and ticket information.
