After a two-year hiatus during the pandemic, Disney just announced that Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is officially returning this year to the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World with tickets on sale now.

This means special access to Disney villains, exclusive party-only Halloween-themed entertainment and photo-ops, ride overlays, treats and the return of “Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade," led by the Headless Horseman and featuring the infamous Haunted Mansion graveyard gravediggers.

Out west at Disney California Adventure Park, Oogie Boogie Bash will take place as usual during the spooky season.

Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party ticket information

Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a special event that requires a party ticket beyond your regular Disney theme park admission.

While you could get one regular theme park ticket for the daytime hours and then this party ticket for the evening, it is usually in your -- and your wallet's -- best interest to rest during the day, and then enter the park using only the party ticket as early as it allows, which is typically beginning at 4 p.m.

The party itself runs from 7 p.m. to midnight on 37 different nights spanning from Aug. 12–Oct. 31, 2022. Ticket prices vary based on the date you select but range from $109–$199 (discounted tickets are typically available for Disney World annual passholders and Disney Vacation Club members).

Tickets are on sale now and as of the time of publication, all dates are still available.

Official event dates include:

  • August: 12, 16, 19, 23, 26, 30
  • September: 2, 5, 9, 11, 13, 16, 18, 20, 23, 25, 27, 29, 30
  • October: 2, 4, 6, 7, 10, 11, 13, 14, 16, 18, 20, 21, 23, 25, 27, 28, 30, 31

You can typically purchase your tickets directly from Disney or via a third-party site such as Undercover Tourist. If you want your ticket-only purchase to code as travel for the purposes of earning extra points in that category on your credit card, or using up an annual credit card travel credit, then Undercover Tourist is the way to go since ticket purchases directly from Disney typically don't code as travel.

Oogie Boogie Bash ticket information

Last year, Oogie Boogie Bash sold out before the parties even started, and we won't be surprised to see high demand again this year given the popularity of the event.

From the top-notch villain appearances, the treat trail, special parades, spooky decor and the Villains Grove trail, Disneyland really knows how to put on a fantastic Halloween event.

For 2022, Oogie Boogie Bash will run on select nights beginning Sept. 6 through Oct. 31 and tickets go on sale to the general public on June 30 at 9 a.m. PT.

Ticket prices start at $129 per person. Official event dates include:

  • September: 6, 10, 13, 15, 18, 20, 22, 25, 27, 29
  • October: 2, 4, 6, 9, 11, 13, 16, 18, 20, 23, 25, 27, 29, 31

If you want to stay at a hotel that has its very own special entrance directly into California Adventure, consider Disney's Grand Californian, which due to its location, makes attending the evening parties a breeze.

Bottom line

If you love all things slightly spooky at Disney, start making those Halloween plans now. While the party tickets generally don't sell out the very first day they go on sale, availability does historically dwindle and ultimately become unavailable, especially at Disneyland.

But with this being the first Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party in Florida since 2019, there could be pent-up demand for that party -- just as there has been for all other things Disney World. So, mark your calendars beginning May 12 for Disney World Halloween ticket sales and stay tuned for more details on Disneyland.
