The number of nights for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party ties the record with 38 nights in 2024, the same number of nights that were scheduled in 2023.

The 2024 Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party event dates are as follows:

  • August: 9, 13, 16, 20, 23, 27 and 30 
  • September: 2, 6, 8, 10, 13, 15, 17, 20, 22, 24, 26, 27 and 29

The party starts at 7:00 pm on each scheduled night and ends at midnight for a total of 5 hours. Ticket-holders for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party can enter the Magic Kingdom starting at 4:00 pm on the day of the event.

That gives you plenty of time to do some of your favorite Magic Kingdom rides before the party starts.

Ticket Prices

Ticket prices range from $119 – $199 each per person. Prices depend on the date you choose to attend.

In general, the least expensive dates are in August and September. These range from a low of $119 to $149. Once you get into October, prices for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party increase drastically and range from $159 to $199.

Of course, it’s a lot more unpleasant going to a costume party in the Florida heat in August and September than it is in late October, but you’ll have to weigh the pros and cons of saving more money or being more comfortable while you are there.

Here is the full list of ticket prices for the event with last year’s prices. As soon as the prices for each date in 2024 are released, we will update this chart:

Discounts – Disney World Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club Members can purchase specially-priced tickets to attend Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, with a discount of $10 per person. These lower prices are only available for select dates.

Ticket Price Stays the Same – Disney has been drastically increasing ticket prices for all hard-ticketed events in the last few years, however, that is not the case for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party in 2024.

Tickets for the event both in 2024 range from $119 to $199 per person for adults, and $109 to $189 for children ages 3-9.

Just as in recent years, the prices went up again for Mickey’s-Not-So-Scary in 2024. Yes, the top-line price is still $199 like last year, but the low went up $10 from last year. Things get even crazier when you look at how much prices have risen just in the last few years.

For example, tickets for the 2020 event (which was ultimately canceled) began at $85 each and reached a peak of $144 each on Halloween night. That means since then, it’s a $34 increase for the cheapest date and $55 on the most expensive date.

Limited Number of Tickets – You should keep in mind that Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party has a limited capacity, and all of the nights will eventually sell out. The more popular nights (the ones close to Halloween) will sell out almost immediately.

Therefore, if you are planning on going, I wouldn’t waste any time buying your tickets. If you wait even only a few days, you will likely find the dates that you are hoping to go will sell out and then you will either have to change dates or skip it altogether.

Our Thoughts

Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Food and Snacks

After the return of the traditional Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party in the past 2 years, it doesn’t surprise us that it’s back again in 2024. At this point, I wouldn’t expect it to ever go away again unless they come up with something even bigger to replace it with some time in the future.

All of the fan-favorite entertainment options are back and there isn’t really too much new to cover.

The one thing we did notice was the ticket prices staying “the same” on the high-end, even though the cheapest tickets are still increasing. Yes, the overall range only goes up by $10 in 2024, however, we expect many of the dates to be priced higher than last year.

We don’t have all the individual date prices at this writing, but what Disney usually does is they keep the highest price the same at $199, but many of the dates will go up in price over what they were last year. So a random night in September is now higher, even though it falls somewhere in the middle of the range.

This isn’t visible just looking at the overall range, and what’s important is the average ticket price for the year.

Last year, a lot of the nights were priced higher than the previous year, even though the absolute lows and highs stayed the same. The average ticket for the event in 2022 was $143, then in 2023 it was $152 each. That’s an increase of about 5% on a per-night basis.

We will update the average ticket price for 2024 when we get all the numbers, but you can be sure it will get a nice bump.

Even with higher prices, we don’t see this affecting attendance in the slightest. All of the dates in 2023 sold out, and we expect that to be the case in 2024, barring something catastrophic. With the extreme popularity of the event, we fully expect it to sell out every night, even with the higher prices.

Typhoon Lagoon H2O Glow Nights Tickets now on sale

At this time we still don’t have the dates for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party for 2024. However, since Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is back to stay, we can expect the dates and prices to be released for the Christmas party at the Magic Kingdom soon.

More special events are taking place around Walt Disney World this year including the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, and the EPCOT Flower and Garden Festival are taking place this year, as well as the H20 Glow Nights at Typhoon Lagoon.

Stay tuned for more info on all these Disney World Special events and we’ll update you on any more cancellations as they happen.
