Where to find the Characters at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party

One of the highlights at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is definitely all the fun and unique characters you can see.

But, Disney doesn’t always make it easy to know who you can find where.

But we can help with that!

Here’s which characters you can see, and where you can find them at the 2022 Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

MNSSHP Character Tips

Here are some of our favorite tips for meeting the fun characters at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party:

MNSSHP

Keep in mind that you can’t meet every character, so be sure to prioritize which ones are important to you.


When it comes to prioritizing, make sure you focus on characters or character combos that are exclusive to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party (and skip the ones you can catch during the regular park day).


Some characters start meeting before the party begins. This is something we definitely recommend you do if your goal is to meet some of the most popular characters. Just make sure you get your party wristband before you hop in line:

  • Jack and Sally: Characters begin meeting at 4:30 (can line up as early as 4:00)
  • Pooh & Friends: begin meeting around 6:30 (we suggest you line up by 5:30)
  • Minnie, Donald, and Daisy: begin meeting around 6:30 (we suggest you line up by 5:30)
  • Elvis/Rock ‘n’ Roll Stitch: begins meeting around 6:30 (we suggest you line up by 6:00)
MNSSHP

If you didn’t meet Jack and Sally before the party begins, keep in mind that it isn’t unusual for them to close the lines around 11 p.m., so don’t wait too long to visit them.


For most other characters, the later the time, the shorter the lines.


Most characters will sign autographs, but a few (like Jack & Sally) do not. For them, you’re handed pre-signed cards, instead.


During the 2nd parade is a great time to meet the characters.


Some character meetings are close enough together that it is easily possible for 1 member of your party to wait in 1 line, while the remaining members of your party wait in the other.

Important: This only works if you have at least 1 person who isn’t interested in meeting/taking pictures with the characters AND if you are respectful of the people behind you and keep it to 1 meet and greet. Don’t have your group of 6 join you in line and then split up into 6 different meet and greets. That’s really frustrating to the people behind you.

So, for example, the Tweedles meet right next to where Alice and the Mad Hatter meet – but it is 2 separate lines. Have the placeholder person jump in the longest of the 2 lines, and the other group can join them after they finish meeting the character with the shorter line.


PhotoPass photographers are available at all the meet and greets. They will take a picture with your camera, but a 1-day Memory Maker purchase (if you don’t already have the full, multi-day one) will give you double the chances to snag the perfect picture.

Do you think there's any possibility they'll bring back the seven dwarfs to later party dates?

We have no way of knowing. Would be exciting if they did.
