BREAKING: Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Has Been Canceled for 2021

Last June, we shared the news that Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party would be canceled for 2020. The announcement came prior to Disney World reopening after its temporarily closure amid the pandemic, and many guests who routinely visit the Halloween Party learned they would be skipping their October 2020 pilgrimage to Magic Kingdom.

Now, we’ve learned that the Halloween parties will once again be canceled for 2021.

Disney just announced that Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party will be canceled for 2021, marking two years in a row now that the parties will not go on. However, there will still be an after-hours Halloween event to look forward to this year!


Instead of Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, Disney has announced that Disney After Hours BOO BASH will be coming to Magic Kingdom. The event will take place on select nights from August 10th to October 31st, from 9PM to midnight (with some nights 9:30PM to 12:30AM).

The new after hours event will grant guests admission to Magic Kingdom as early as 7PM, and they will NOT need a Park Pass reservation ahead of time.  Additionally, the event will feature Halloween cavalcades, characters throughout the parks, treats and candy galore, and a chance for guests to wear their Halloween costumes!

  1. Very disappointed they’re canceling Mickey’s not-so-scary Halloween Party once again this year! Since my daughter was a baby I’ve been taking her there it’s our bonding time together and now she is going to be 13 and we couldn’t go last year and we were hoping this year would be different. Please bring it back!

  2. Highly disappointed that Disney is cancelling Not so scary. Was looking forward to go with my granddaughters and daughter this year. We so love not so scary

    Why shorter hours and more money

  3. My adult sons and I were really looking forward to going this year. We went in years past and love this party. Already thinking about costumes. My opinion is that this “light” version is lame! As others have said, guests will be allowed in at 7:00 instead of 4:00, no parades, meet and greets, etc. More money. Looks like on-site guests will get first dibs on tickets? I think we’ll wait until next year.

  4. I was able to experience Mickeys not so scary Halloween in 2019 it was by far the best !!! We loved it. Very sad they would cancel or change it because it was amazing. Hope they bring it back in full. I wanted to go this year.

  5. overpriced! it used to be worth it when the tickets were less than 100$ (2 years ago) & u can go in as early as 3pm till closing. enjoy the fireworks, parade, etc. tons of treat stations. Now its cut in half, double the price persey, and for what- to say for them to wear there costumes?! no thanks. might as well have ur own parties & take the kiddos trick-o- treating. =)

  6. Disney expects us to pay full price for half a show. I will be at the Grand Floridian in Oct. because I am DVC but I will go to Halloween Horror Nights and spend my money at Universal. If Disney continues this nonsense I will be selling my DVC contracts and staying at Universal.

    1. Kevin Mucha: These are the differences: No parade, no Fireworks, no rare character meet & greets, shorter hours, increased ticket price since it is an “after hours” event even though it is a “lite” version of the normal party

    2. Mostly sounds the same. However, its sounds like there won’t be a Halloween parade like the past and this event will still have cavalcades, and that there won’t be the meet and greets like the past, but the characters will make socially distanced appearances like they do now. So guessing the name change is more of a PR thing so that guests won’t think they will get the same experience this year like what was given before Covid.
