It last took place in 2018.
Mickey’s Halloween Party is a special extra-ticket event held select nights at at Disneyland during the Halloween season. The party includes a special fireworks show featuring a fly-by of Zero (instead of Tinker Bell), a Halloween parade called Frightfully Fun Parade, trick-or-treating, and more.
Officially the Party runs from 6 pm on some nights and 7 pm on others. The party runs until 11 pm or 12 am, depending on the night. Guests with valid Halloween party tickets may enter the park up to three hours prior to the event’s start time.
The prices range depending on the date, when you purchase, and whether you're an annual passholder. For 2018, tickets started at $95 and went up as high as $130. Parking is not included with Halloween party tickets and must be purchased separately. Tickets go on sale on June 12, 2018.
Many dates often sell out, so buy your tickets once you're certain of the date you want to attend.
2018 dates are:
Yes. Mickey’s Halloween Party tickets are totally separate from regular park admission media. If you have a one day, one park ticket, you’re welcome to visit DCA in the morning and then Mickey’s Halloween Party in the evening using a Party ticket. This would not count as a “Park Hop.”
No. Beginning in late afternoon, several stations will be set up inside the park to distribute wristbands to Party guests who are already inside. Stop by one of the stations; they’ll scan your Halloween party ticket, give you a wristband, and you’ll be good to go when the part starts.
Costumes are not required to attend the Party, but many guests do add to the fun by getting dressed up. There are a few restrictions on costumes (more on that below), but there is no requirement that costumes be Disney-related. Many guests choose to give a nod to Disney in their dress-up (Minions and about 5000 people dressed as Snow White are popular choices), but you’ll also see plenty of non-Disney costumes on hand.
The goal for costumes is being fun and creative, not frightening. You’ll be asked to change or leave if your costume is too scary or grotesque.
The official language states that Halloween costumes should not:
The last bullet point is strictly enforced. Every year we’ve received feedback from attendees that have either been warned by security or even asked to leave the party because they were stopped by other guests asking for pictures. If your costume is especially good and stands out you will be stopped several times by other guests asking for pictures, despite your best effort to keep moving.
Lines for the rides to be quite short during the Party; however, other aspects of the event can feel quite intense crowd-wise. Think of party nights as a regular busy day at the park, or a 6 or 7 on the crowd calendar. With so many meet and greets, candy stations, fireworks, and the parade, it is hard to do everything.
The Halloween Party has several components:
Besides an expensive dinner package at Blue Bayou, there are no table service restaurants seating guests once the Party starts. However, if you’re seated at a table service before the start of the Party, you’ll be allowed to finish your meal at a normal pace. You won’t be rushed out.
There are a number of counter service venues open during the Party. In recent years these have included: The Plaza Inn, Jolly Holiday Bakery, Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor, Refreshment Corner, Royal Street Veranda, Bengal Barbecue, The Golden Horseshoe, Stage Door Cafe, and Tomorrowland Terrace. These spots give you a range of options from sweets to salads. Check out the restaurant menus for specifics.
Absolutely! Not only can you meet characters, but many of them will be wearing Halloween costumes themselves. Here is a list of characters that often meet duing the Halloween Parties:
The lines for the character greetings, particularly Jack and Sally, can become very long, very fast. Even at the start of the Party, you may face wait times of an hour or more. If character photo opportunities are important to you, but sure to factor wait times into your planning.
Well you're in luck! Here is a very detailed blog post about the 2018 event.
