Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Canceled for 2020

Hi everyone –

Disney has made several announcements on the Disney Parks Blog, with one disappointing development – though not unexpected – being the cancellation of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party for 2020. With no fireworks, parades and social distancing in force (so no meet and greets), it would have been a very difficult event to put on at the Magic Kingdom. Disney H20 Glow Nights are also canceled this year. Nothing has been decided yet on Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Read the paragraph below and you can check out the entire article on the Disney Parks Blog. There will be “A Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival” starting July 15th and I look forward to that.

From the Disney Parks Blog:

While assessing another fall special event, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, we determined that many of its hallmarks – stage shows, parades and fireworks – are unable to take place in this new, unprecedented environment. With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.  Additionally, Disney H2O Glow Nights, the nighttime special ticket event at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon, will not take place for the remainder of 2020. Guests who have already bought tickets to these events will be assisted with refunds over the coming weeks.
