Dad is Retiring!

We’ll be closing this site on December 31, 2020.

As of June 2, 2020, we’ll no longer be updating content. But don’t worry - Dad’s friends can still help with all your Disney dreaming, planning, and booking needs!

Thank you for your support of Dad’s Guide to WDW for the past 11 years!

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

At Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party the scariest thing is the guests, and most of them are under 4 foot tall. This party is a kid-friendly “Spooky” party. Guests are invited to wear costumes. (Please adults, Disney World is full of kids who don’t need an anatomy lesson.) Costumes should not hinder vision, and no items resembling weapons will be allowed (with the exception of plastic lightsabers and toy swords).

You can have the Magic Kingdom all to yourself, just you and about 20,000 of your friends, from 7:00pm until midnight. You even get to Trick-or-Treat your way around the Magic Kingdom.
