Why not collect some ghoulish delights?

There is always exclusive merchandise available exclusivly at the Halloween Party, be sure to check the special guide map you are given when checking in for detials and locations.

Theres even an exclusive Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom card to collect for guests of the Halloween Party, this year’s card is  ‘The Phantasmal Fireworks’ Flash’ card. You can register to play Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom at the fire-station on Main Street USA, you are supposed to show your Halloween Party wristband, however, I have had cast members scan my MagicBand for the ticket during the day time and have also received the card.

If your not sure what Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is, its an interactive game you play with collectable cards around the Magic Kingdom. You use your spell cards to help defeat Disney Villans who are trying to take over the Magic Kingdom. Its a fun and clever game that interacts with you and the area around you whilst you play.

Plenty of Halloween Treats for everyone

There’s also plenty of delicious Halloween treats throughout the park, with Disney always delivering spooktacular fun food every year. I know my husband is looking forward to the party exclusive Gluten friendly Sally Pushpops that they will be selling near Cinderella Castle this year, and i cant wait to try the Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream and Milkshakes.🤤

There’s also trick or treat stations dotted around the park, giving you the perfect chance to collect bags of candy, and maybe even bump into some Disney characters too. It’s always the highlight of the Halloween parties, the year sees the addition of an interactive treat trail into Monstropolis where the monsters from Monsters Inc will interact with a comic entourage of monsters who are learning about the curious human-world holiday called Halloween.

Special Attraction Overlays

The classic Magic Kingdom attractions even join in on the fun, with some getting special additions for just for the party. Space Mountain turns off all the lights and stars, going completely dark and hurtling guests through the blackness of deep space.

Pirates of the Caribbean will see a new crew of live pirates engaged in a whole new swashbuckling quest for treasure, and at the Mad Tea Party, special lighting and music enhance the nighttime experience to bring out the maddest hatter in everyone.

Fun for the little ones.

There’s also a ton of fun for the little ones to get in on too, Storybook Circus Disney Junior Jam in Fantasyland is the place to party with favorite Disney Junior characters like Doc McStuffins, Timon and Vampirina. New this year, Nancy Clancy from the hit Disney Junior series “Fancy Nancy” joins the fun.


New for 2019 – ‘Disney’s Not So Spooky Spectacular’

As soon as Disney announced this new Fireworks show for 2019, I know for sure I had to make it to the Magic Kingdom for halloween this year. Hallowishes is an amazing show, so this new show has a lot to live upto, but from the preview Disney have released so far, im sure its going to become a fan favourite.

The new “Disney’s Not So Spooky Spectacular” lights the night sky during the witching season in a spellbinding display playing across the heavens. As host of the spectacle, Jack Skellington from Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas” spins a not-so-scary tale about how anything can happen on Halloween night.

Jack’s ghost dog, Zero, brings everyone along on a trick-or-treating adventure where four friends – Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy and Donald Duck – find themselves drawn into a haunted house. Encounters with dancing skeletons, waltzing ghosts and wickedly troublemaking Disney villains make for a hair-raising adventure. It all comes to life with state-of-the-art projection effects, lasers, lighting and dazzling fireworks.

‘Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade’

The Boo To You parade is up there with my all time favourite parades at a Disney park.

The galloping Headless Horseman fronts “Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade,” setting the stage for spooktacular fun throughout Magic Kingdom. The parade opens with a flurry of beloved Disney friends, including Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse in new Halloween costumes. The spectral Bride from The Haunted Mansion appears in the parade this year alongside waltzing spirits and those famous Hitchhiking Ghosts. Pixar pals join the fun, too, including The Incredibles and designer extraordinaire Edna Mode, as well as Buzz Lightyear and alien explorers on a planetary playset float inspired by Pixar’s Toy Story films.

Wreck-It-Ralph, Vanellope von Schweetz and the girls from Sugar Rush make sure there’s plenty of candy to go around during the parade. In addition, pirates sail in from Adventureland, Clarabelle Cow hosts a square dance during a Frontierland hoedown and a wicked assortment of Disney villains reigns over a Fantasyland-inspired grand finale.

Costume Policy

The Halloween Party is the only time Adult guests are allowed to dress up in costume whilst in the parks, so be sure to make the most of the opportunity, some guests really do go all out. The first time I went I just thought nobody would make the effort and instantly regretted not dressing up, so now try to make the effort every trip, it can be hard to bring a costume from the UK, but you can always try something simple and maybe dress up inspired by your favourite Disney character, rather than going all out.

However, there are a few rules that Disney have put in place for your security and the comfort of all other guests:-


  • Disney reserves the right to deny admission to or remove any person wearing attire that is considered inappropriate or could detract from the experience of other Guests.
  • All Guests may dress as their favorite character, but may not pose for pictures or sign autographs for other Guests.
  • Costumes must be family-friendly and may not be obstructive, offensive, objectionable or violent.
  • Costumes may not contain any weapons that resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon.
  • Costumes may not contain sharp objects, pointed objects or materials that may accidentally strike another Guest.
  • Guests who do not adhere to these guidelines may be refused entry into, and/or removed from, the park unless his or her costume can be modified to meet the above standards.


  • Costumes and some masks may be worn, as long as the mask does not cover the entire face and eyes are visible.


  • Layered costumes or costume props that surround the entire body are strongly discouraged and may be subject to additional security screening.
  • Costumes may not reach or drag on the ground. (e.g., full-length Princess dresses)
  • Capes may be worn if the length does not go below the waist.
  • Themed T-shirts, blouses, sweatshirts and hats are acceptable.
  • Acceptable accessories include: transparent wings, plastic light sabers, toy swords and tutus. Headwear may be worn as long as it does not cover the face.
