Disney World announces dates for 2017 Halloween & Christmas Parties


It’s only April and Disney is already thinking about the Headless Horseman and Santa Claus. Walt Disney World announced dates today for both Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Parties at the Magic Kingdom today.

For the first time ever, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party will kick off in August, giving families plenty of time to plan their Halloween vacations. The event kicks off August 25 to be exact, and then runs select dates through November 1 at the Magic Kingdom.

Walt Disney World has not yet announced pricing or when tickets go on sale, but with dates announced, surely those details are not far behind. Just remember that when tickets do go on sale, to purchase your tickets early, because many event nights sell out.

Remember, due to recent security changes at Walt Disney World, there are new rules and guidelines to follow in regards to costumes. You can read Disney’s costume policy here.
