In 2020, we lost Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party to COVID restrictions. Walt Disney World has decided not to bring it back in 2021 either, but instead of canceling it altogether, it has been replaced with the Disney After Hour Boo Bash. Disney After Hour Boo Bash is going to be a combination of a “party” like Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and an after-hours event.
“Disney After Hours BOO BASH” will take place on select nights, August 10 – October 31, 2021, most nights from 9:00 p.m. to midnight. Spooky festivities will include Halloween-themed cavalcades, character sightings throughout the park, special performances by the Cadaver Dans, décor, lighting, music, treat stops with plenty of candy and so much more!
“Disney After Hours BOO BASH” tickets will grant admission to the Magic Kingdom Park as early as 7:00 p.m. without the need for a day park ticket or Disney Park Pass theme park reservation, giving Guests time to enjoy even more of their favorites.
Guests young, old and immortal can dress in costume for the occasion and get their fill of Halloween candy. As an important reminder, costume masks are not permitted for adults; they can only be worn by children younger than 14. In addition, all Guests are required to wear approved face coverings during the event.
If you aren’t familiar with Disney After Hours events, they a special events that are open to a limited number of Guests, after normal park operating hours. The experience offers low wait times at more than 20 attractions from classics like The Haunted Mansion and Space Mountain, to newer favorites like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. It’s a ghostly good time for all!
