If you’ve never experienced Disney World or Disneyland at Halloween, you’re in for a treat. There’s plenty to see and do at the parks on a regular day. But at Halloween? There are even more parties to attend, entertainment to watch, and magic to explore. Of course, every good party has a few rules. Disney’s Halloween festivities are no exception.
Below, check out the more surprising rules you’ll need to follow if you want to celebrate Halloween at Disney.
1. You’ll need a separate ticket
Celebrating Halloween at Disney isn’t quite so simple as showing up with a regular ticket during October. As the Disney Parks Blog notes, you’ll also need a specific party ticket if you want to attend one of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Parties, which are happening on a variety of different nights. You’ll need a party ticket to enjoy perennial favorites like Mickey’s “Boo-to-You” Halloween Parade, the “Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular,” and Happy HalloWishes Fireworks Spectacular.
The same goes for the “Frightfully Fun” Parade, the “Halloween Screams Fireworks,” and the “Cadaver Dans” at Disneyland. Everybody needs a ticket to join the party at Disney World or Disneyland. However, special prices are available for Annual Passholders and members of the Disney Vacation Club.
