I love surprises. I love getting surprised (if it’s a good one of course) & I love surprising people. The reactions are priceless.
This Friday, I surprised my two oldest children with an evening at Disney World. We didn’t tell them until we pulled up and they saw the famous Magic Kingdom entryway.
It was a very cool moment that I tried to capture on camera, but it didn’t work out. They screamed and both couldn’t believe that is what we were doing on our Friday Night.
Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party
We were invited out to experience Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween. The last time we were at Disney was in May for Mother’s Day, so you can imagine the scenery was completely different.
As we approached the gate, we noticed that many people were dressed in costumes. It was hilarious. There we so many cool costumes & people went all in with their creativity.
The event started at 7pm and goes to around 1am. It’s called not-so-scary Halloween because it allows children of every age to enjoy the event. The decor resembles a cross between Thanksgiving and Halloween which is enjoyable and festive.
Here are 5 Things Your Children (& You) Will Enjoy:
- Candy – It’s everywhere. There are “treat” balloons all over the park. When you see a balloon, you can get a handful of candy. If you want more, just get back in line. My children got enough candy for a few Halloweens. I told them that they are not going trick or treating this year. Disney took care of that.
- Rides – The lines for the rides were non-existent. We basically walked on to Space Mountain with no line. Oh! I am not getting on that again. I screamed the entire time. They didn’t allow for fast passes because the crowd was light. We were able to go from ride to ride with ease. The kids loved that!
- HalloWishes Fireworks – Who doesn’t love a good firework show? They do the firework display 2 times that evening, so if you miss the first one – you can catch the second one. They light up the sky with Halloween colors too!
- Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade – Have you ever been to a Disney Parade? It’s magical. The parade is a great display of Disney’s Villains singing and dancing. Show times 8:30pm & 11:15pm
- Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular – this is a stage show directly in front of the castle! Get there early because it’s a show stopper! Times are 9:15pm & 10:40pm
