2024 Guide to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party tickets

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP) is a specially ticketed event at Magic Kingdom where people get dressed up in costume and attend special Halloween-themed activities that are only offered at the party.

But, if you want to go to the party you’ll need to purchase tickets, and just when (and how) to buy those tickets can be a bit confusing. 

Here’s everything you need to know about Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party tickets in 2024.

Important note: some of the information below is from 2023 and will be updated as new information is released for 2024.
Please check back often for updates.

First, some basics

New to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party?

Before you dive too far into the ticket information, you will definitely want to check out our Complete Guide to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party first.

There you’ll find everything you need to know about the party, including tips on what to expect and advice on how to tour.

When should you buy a ticket?

This decision of when you should buy your ticket is based on a few different factors.

Main Street USA - Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party

One of the first things to consider is what date you plan to attend.

In the past, many of the Halloween parties did not sell out. However, since this is the return of the party after it has been absent for a few years, we believe there will be more parties than usual selling out.

Definitely purchase your MNSSHP ticket early if you want to attend:

  • the first or second party of the year
  • parties in mid to late October
  • Halloween night

As for which day of the week is best, Friday night dates tend to be the most popular (because lots of locals will attend those parties) while Tuesdays typically are the least crowded.

Want a good idea which parties Disney thinks will be popular? Look at the price of the ticket.

The higher the ticket price, the more demand Disney thinks there will be for that party.

How much do Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Party Tickets cost?

In 2024, ticket prices for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party range in price from $119-$199 for adults and $109-$189 for children ages 3-9.

The closer to Halloween you get, the more expensive the tickets, with Halloween being the most expensive out of all the parties.

When do Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Tickets go on sale?

Tickets for the 2024 parties begin sales in mid May 2024:

  • May 8, 2024: onsite guests (including all onsite Disney Resort hotels, Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels, and Shades of Green). Make sure you are logged into My Disney Experience before heading to the Special Events Tickets page on the Disney World website.
  • May 15, 2024 – everyone else

Tickets are limited and may not be available for purchase on the day of the event (or earlier).

Which MNSSHP dates have sold out?

Typically, the first 2 parties to sell out are the opening night and Halloween.

After that, we expect for the 2nd and possibly 3rd parties of the year and the dates close to Halloween to sell out.

Keep in mind that MNSSHP saw all of its dates sell out in 2023.

We wouldn’t be surprised to see all of the 2024 dates once again sell out. But, beyond that, we really can’t say which parties will sell out first.

If you plan to attend a party that is not expected to sell out, there are two main things to consider:

  • Tickets to MNSSHP are non-refundable
  • MNSSHP is held regardless of weather

Since tickets to the party are non-refundable, unless you plan to go no matter what, it may be a better option to wait until you are at Disney World to buy tickets to ensure that you still want to attend the party.

This is especially true for weather-related issues. The Halloween parties occur during hurricane season, so there is a chance that it could be pouring on the night of the party you plan to attend.

If you haven’t purchased tickets before you go, you may decide that it is better to just spend some time at the resorts instead of paying to attend a party in the rain.

And, while the party itself will likely not be canceled due to rain or inclement weather, there is a chance that certain activities (like the parade) will.

Ultimately, if you want to guarantee you have tickets to the party you would like to attend, you should purchase them as soon as possible.

If, however, you don’t have your heart set on a party, or you’d rather wait to see what the weather looks like, we recommend holding off buying them until the date gets closer.

Which day of the week is best?

People attending Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party often want to know the best day to buy tickets, so they can experience the least number of crowds.

Here are some guidelines to help you plan:

  • Tuesdays are usually the least crowded party days
  • The early parties are way less crowded than the later parties (so August and September Halloween parties will be much less crowded than October dates)
  • The only exception to that is that sometimes the very first party is busy as locals and media types attend to get the scoop on party events

Where can you buy Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party tickets?

When it comes time to purchase your tickets, you have several options:

Through your Travel Professional

If you are working with a travel agent, they will be able to purchase your tickets for you. 


MNSSHP tickets can also be purchased online on the official Walt Disney World website.

By phone 

Prefer to call in? You can order tickets by phone by calling 1-407-WDISNEY. If you must call in, keep in mind that wait times may be long.

Discounts for MNSSHP tickets

While large discounts aren’t available, there are a couple of ways to save a few bucks:

Pick an earlier party

Earlier parties and parties on weekdays tend to be less busy, and consequently Disney prices the tickets for those parties at a lower price than ones later in the season.

Check for Annual Passholder and Disney Vacation Club discounts

If you have an Annual Pass or if you own Disney Vacation Club (DVC) you may be eligible for a $10 per ticket discount.

My Disney Experience

After you purchase your ticket, you’ll need to make sure it is linked in the My Disney Experience app and assigned to the correct person.

If you purchased your ticket online from Disney and you were logged into your My Disney Experience account, it may already be linked, but it always a good idea to double-check.

Here’s how that works:

From the homepage of the My Disney Experience app, select the menu button down in the lower right-hand corner:

My Disney Experience home screen

Then, select “Tickets and Passes”:

Tickets and Passes

That will bring up all the tickets you have linked. If you don’t see your MNSSHP ticket linked there, you just need to press the + button in the top right:


From there, you just follow the steps to link your ticket. After a ticket is linked, as long as you haven’t used it you can reassign it, but tickets themselves are non-refundable.

@Ryan, Doesn't look like an official time has been announced but in the article it says last year it was at midnight so they are expecting it to be the same if you're buying them through MDE.
