I am someone who does not like Halloween. I don’t like dressing up. I don’t like buying candy and giving it out to the neighborhood kids. I use just put it in a bowl and leave it on my front step. However, at Disney, that all changes. I’ve been to two Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Parties. I dressed up for one. I didn’t for other because it was too hot to be in costume. Disney, in my opinion, does a great job with the Halloween party. They turn Halloween into a fun event compared to all the work I have to put in at home to make Halloween enjoyable.

Last year, Walt Disney World rolled out a lot of special events to its special event lineup. Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas are the tent-poles of the Walt Disney World Special Events. Magic Kingdom and Disneyland Park open for 24 straight hours during Memorial Day weekend is quickly becoming a third tent-pole for these special events. The 24-hour park day is a great promotion for the guests because it does not require an extra ticket to attend like the Halloween and Christmas Party. The other events, on this list, are also “hard/extra ticket” events.
Disclaimer: Everything in this article in regard to what events will be coming to Walt Disney World is pure speculation. None of these events, for this year, has been confirmed or denied by Walt Disney World.
Most of the time, you heard me rip Disney decision-making in regards to add on’s and extras at the Halloween and Christmas Parties. Today, however, is different. They announced something on Friday which I think is a good idea and a good value. The Disney Parks Blog announced that a special “one-day” only Memory Maker can be purchased on nights when Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party takes place.
The “one-day” only Memory Maker costs only $39.95 and is good for any pictures Memory Maker photos: character interactions, select attraction and dining photos as well. This “one-day” only Memory Maker can be purchased at any ticket booth at the Ticket and Transportation Center. It can also be added to existing Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party tickets as well.
To me, this is a nice add-on for guests who are just attending the party but want to have the Memory Maker pictures to remember their experience or even for guests who did not purchase Memory Maker for their vacation but still want to capture the photos of their Halloween party experience. I would also speculate that this “one-day” Memory Maker would carry over into Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party as well.
There was some big news released, this morning, from the World Showcase at EPCOT. Many popular acts, according to WDW Magic, have been told that their final performances will be at the end of September.
- Mo’Rockin at the Morocco Pavilion, Off Kilter in the Canada Pavilion, and Spirit of America at The American Adventure will be making their final appearances on September 27.
- The World Showcase Players have been told that their final performance will be on September 25.
- There are unconfirmed reports that British Revolution will have their final performance on September 27.
No official reason has been issued as to why these groups are being retired. That has left nothing but speculation which I won’t get into here. However, Disney has announced some new groups and shows which will be taking their place.
- A lumberjack show in Canada
- Flag-waving performers in Italy
- A Berber music and dance troupe in Morocco
- Celtic folk music group in the United Kingdom
We will have to wait and see if these groups will put a breath of fresh air into the stage performances at the World Showcase.
