best Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party Dates

Which MIckey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is best?

Which Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party date should I choose?

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party has grown tremendously in popularity over the last couple of years.  In previous years Halloween night would sell out in advance and perhaps one or two other dates.

In 2013 eight different hard ticket Halloween Parties sold out at the Magic Kingdom.  Most were on Thursdays and Fridays in October and only one date in late September sold out.  Here’s chart of sell outs from 2013.  I’ll begin tracking them again this year for the 2014 Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

I’ve received a number of questions regarding which day of the week is best to attend on of the parties.  If possible during your trip, you might consider attending on a Tuesday night.  They tend to have the lowest attendance.  Fridays in October are typically the worst days to attend a party in terms of crowds.  These are the dates that I would choose in the order of preference.

      1. I’ll be there on sept 1 as well and look forward to real time updates. This is my first Halloween party and I’m clueless other than what’s on ur site. I have ur app which was awesome in may.,I know for sure I’m getting on line way early for the dwarfs and will do at least 2 villians shows plus the villians dance club and hoping to meet genie and Tarzan as well…

        Off topic but what’s your prediction for how crowded Hollywood studios will be the day before, esp as it relates to bring able to sign up for Jedi training?

        Thanks and look forward to ur real time updates on sep 1


      2. Kenny I actually scored 8:10 Hollywood and vine breakfast reservations for that day. What time would u suggest I leave breakfast to head over to the abc thing for Jedi sign ups?


  1. We could do any of the parties from Oct 24-31. We were planning on Tues the 28th because everything I’ve read said Tuesday is the best day to go. But your list shows it being worse than Friday, Sunday and Thursday nights. Should we switch to one of those?


      1. How would you compare a sold out MNSSHP to a typical crowd in MK? We have been the week before July 4th and The first week of April.


  2. You don’t think sept 1 is a bad night to go simply Bc it’s the first of the year? Or does Bc it falls on Memorial Day outweigh that? I had thought first party of the year on a holiday could cause bigger crowds..

    Also anything new on the Hercules to Halloween party rumor that u mentioned a while ago?


  3. Thanks for this. We arrive on 23rd Oct for 2 weeks was hoping to buy tickets when new arrive for either 28th or 30th as I like to check the weather forecast but do you think I am leaving it to late?


      1. Thanks for the advise, glad to know we in England are not alone with rubbish weather forecasters 🙂 last visit was 2006 I’m guessing the party was less popular then, if I remember right only 31st was sold out.


  4. I thk i will able to catch the sept 1rst party this year before i do that crazy drive back to Nj on the 2nd.Hopefully they change up the characters because it seems always the same most years.Any chance Hercules will show or is tht just rumors?


  5. Thanks Kenny….reassuring to see that my choice for MNSSHP is 5th from the top of your list…’s hoping your list folks stay away too, lol.
