After seeing the premier of the Boo Bash during last year’s Halloween season, we were unsure of the fate of what special spooky celebration would be coming to Disney World for 2022. However, today it has been confirmed that the fan favorite Mickey’s Not-so-Scary Halloween Party will be returning to Magic Kingdom for 2022. This news comes with other special and scary announcements coming to the Disney Parks!
It’s official– the Sanderson Sisters will be back to cast their wicked spells across Magic Kingdom park on select nights for the Halloween season.
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party returns on 37 select nights Aug. 12 through Oct. 31, 2022 from 7pm to midnight. As part of the event, guests can look forward to event-exclusive entertainment, notorious Disney villains and the Haunted Mansion graveyard gravediggers. And in honor of the 50th Anniversary celebration, we’re adding even more fun this year in the form of event-exclusive step-in photo opportunities. And in addition to the reusable trick-or-treating tote bag, guests will also receive a Halloween-themed 50thAnniversary celebration commemorative print.
Updates from Disney Cruise Line ‘Halloween on the High Seas’
In addition to Minnie, Daisy and Clarabelle debuting never-before-seen outfits as they dress up as the Sanderson Sisters, there will be stunning new décor aboard the Disney Wish. Aboard the Disney Wish, guests will witness the debut of an all-new Pumpkin Tree in the “Cinderella”-inspired Grand Hall. Featuring lighter bark, graceful branches and a mystical face, legend has it that this enchanted tree (named Boo) grew beautiful gourds with the help of a wishing star. The best pumpkin of them all was destined to grant a very special wish … and that moment came when a carriage was needed to send a fair maiden to a royal soiree. In a flash of bibbidi-bobbidi-boo, that perfect pumpkin became the coach that carried Cinderella to the prince’s ball!
