Trick-or-Treating the Disney Way

What could be better than people giving you free candy just for dressing up for Halloween?  Getting that candy in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. What could be better than trick-or-treating in the Magic Kingdom?  Trick-or-treating in the Magic Kingdom after having a Pirate or Princess makeover!

Mickey’s No So Scary Halloween Party is currently taking place on select nights during the month of October at Magic Kingdom. You must purchase tickets ahead of time for this party and although the tickets are pricey ($70+ for adults, $60+ for children ages 3-9). The party has special appearances by Disney Characters including many villians that are not usually seen in the parks. Trick-or-treating stops throughout the park where they load you up with candy along with some healthy snacks (insider tip…take your own bag!  I made my children bags when we went and they were full when we left!).  There is a special parade along with a special performance on the stage in front of the castle as well. If you plan on being there in the fall, it is well worth your money to do the Halloween Party.

Although it is not required, many people, especially children, dress up for the Party.  If you want to make your Trick-or-Treating experience extra special, book a reservation at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Botique for your little princess or the Pirate League for both young and old pirates.  The Botique is loacted in Downtown Disney at the World of Disney or at the Magic Kingdom in Cinderella Castle.  The packages vary between $54.00 – $194.00 for little girls ages 3-12.  Girls can choose to purchase their princess attire or you can bring your own.  Little Princesses get their hair, make-up, and nails done by a fairy godmother in training.  At the Pirate League, children through adults can get a makeover as a pirate or mermaid.  Little children can even be made over as Jake from Jake and the Neverland Pirates.  Packages range from $24.00 – $75.00.  It is very important to make reservations at both of these places.  Reservations are accepted 180 days in advance. 

Once you are made over, you are ready to collect your candy and experience the park in a totally different way.  One last tip, make sure you rest the day of the Halloween Party especially if you have smaller children.  It can be a busy and late night!
