New Event during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party for 2014

Villains’ Sinister Soiree: A Wicked Takeover of Cinderella Castle is a new addition to the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom in fall 2014. The event is $99 plus tax on top of the price ticket for the party.

Here is the description for the party and what is included with that price.

 Join Lady Tremaine and her villainous friends at the witching hour for the season’s most decadent dessert party. Taking place during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary-Halloween Party, it’s the Villains’ Sinister Soiree: A Wicked Takeover of Cinderella Castle!


Set within the majestic halls of Cinderella’s Royal Table, don’t miss your chance to meet a menagerie of malevolent special guests—all while you indulge in devilish desserts and wicked entertainment.


As the evening continues, follow fellow Guests to the dining room, where the surroundings have transformed into an upscale, villainous atmosphere. Inside, enjoy the eerie entertainment as a piano player provides live music, accompanied by a few haunting solos from Lady Tremaine herself.


By purchasing a ticket to both Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and the Villains’ Sinister Soiree: A Wicked Takeover of Cinderella Castle, you’ll receive preferred viewing for the 8:15 performance of Mickey’s “Boo-to-You” Halloween Parade, as well preferred viewing for the Happy HalloWishes Fireworks Spectacular.


Plus, you’ll be treated to the Dessert Soiree at Cinderella’s Table—a delightful affair where you can feast your senses on Lady Tremaine’s eerie musical talents, over-the-top desserts and specialty non-alcoholic beverages. You’ll even receive an autograph card and a souvenir Maleficent dragon cup!

Things to do during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party:

Character Meet & Greets. During the party there are several meet and greets of lesser seen characters around the park! The 7 Dwarves (seen with or without Snow White) will be especially popular this year with the opening of the new Mine Train ride, but some princes, Jack Skellington and Sally, Winnie the Pooh and Friends (in Halloween costumes!), and more are also scheduled to appear.

Boo To You Halloween Parade. I am normally not a parade person and in my opinion the 3:00 parade is hit or miss… and I usually take a pass. But this parade is my absolute favorite attraction in all of Disney World! From the headless horseman’s ride at the start of the parade to the gravediggers and more this is a show NOT to be missed.

HalloWishes. A special extra pyrotechnic fireworks show only put on for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party!

Rides! One of the greatest benefits to attending a “hard ticket” event at Disney is that the crowds are lower than a normal day. This often means rides have little to no wait and you can often walk right on! For me, a Halloween party isn’t a Halloween party without a ride on Pirate’s of the Caribbean and the Haunted Mansion, at the very least.



  • You can enter the Magic Kingdom beginning at 4pm with your party tickets. The party doesn’t begin until 7pm but that’s 3 hours of extra park time! Make use of it, even just to grab some dinner before the party starts.
  • Think about having a relaxing morning at your resort or Downtown Disney on party day, especially if you’ve got little ones. A nap before the event will help everyone stay happy until the end of the party at midnight!
  • While normally very crowded, my favorite place to view the Boo To You Halloween parade and the Hallowishes fireworks show is on the train station platform at the entrance of the Magic Kingdom. I’ve had good luck nabbing a great spot there even 20 minutes before the second parade was set to begin!
  • Don’t waste time Trick-or-Treating. Sure, the kids will want candy but the lines can get long and you can buy a bag of your favorite candy (this isn’t special Disney candy, just grocery store stuff) for a lot less than the cost of your ticket 😉
  • Wear a costume! Children and adults alike dress up for this event, or at the very least wear a festive holiday tee shirt 🙂
