Official: 2020 Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party has been cancelled

Unfortunately, Disney has made the difficult decision to cancel all 2020 Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Parties at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. Their announcement cites the inability to host the event’s most iconic elements – an amazing parade, fireworks and stage shows – as the reason they’re cancelling and not offering a modified version.

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.  

Disney will refund all guests who purchased tickets to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party over the next few weeks.

As disappointing as this news is, it’s not a complete surprise. We discussed the very possibility the party might be in jeopardy as rumors swirled about cancellations back in in April. Most of the key elements of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party involve guests crowding together to enjoy some spectacular and unique entertainment. Remove that entertainment and what you’re left with can’t justify standing on its own.

Shifting over to Epcot, Disney has also announced that they’re basically combining the Flower and Garden Festival with the Food and Wine Festival to offer a hybrid offering for guests. You can read more about that here.
