On our Crowd Calendar we try to indicate dates when we think the Magic Kingdom will host Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Parties before the official schedule is announced, as a way to help our readers begin their initial planning. However, as with everything on the crowd calendar, this is subject to change.
Recently, the release of initial park hours (provided to Travel Agents) showed the set of dates in October when the Magic Kingdom is scheduled to close at 7:00pm. This gives us a way to double-check our guesses for dates of the Halloween Parties. Based on the current schedule, there are two fewer parties scheduled this year than in 2011, BUT that may very well change.
If you had planned to attend a Not-So-Scary Party and it no longer appears on our calendar, withhold your panic. It may re-appear when Disney revisits the schedule as the fall approaches and ticket sales start to roll in.
