Looking for the Complete Vegan Guide to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party in the Magic Kingdom?
You’ve come to the right place.
Attending Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party as a vegan and have no clue what to expect? Will you be feasting on fists full of craisins and carrot sticks while your fellow party goers stuff their faces full of chocolate bars?
Read on and find out…
First a few tips for you.
Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a separate hard ticket event. This means that the party is not included in regular park admission. You must purchase a separate party ticket to attend.
The party runs from 7 PM to midnight but you are able to enter the Magic Kingdom as early as 4 PM with your MNSSHP ticket.
If you enter the park early, my suggestion is to go ahead and find a place to eat supper before the special party festivities begin. Trust me, you’ll be hard pressed for time to eat if you are wanting see, do and ride everything during the party.
Vegan Eats Before Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Treats
There are several places which offer vegan options for dinner inside the Magic Kingdom.
Here’s a look at the quick service options you can indulge in.
This is the Plant Based Southwest Cheeseburger from Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn & Cafe in Frontierland.
It’s a Beyond Meat patty topped with vegan jalapeño jack cheese and vegan avocado aioli on a toasted bun. The burger is vegan as-is with zero modifications and I dressed it up at the toppings bar with lettuce tomato and pickle chips. It comes standard with a side of corn chips. Salsa and pico de gallo is available at the toppings bar to dip your chips in.
Also, how cute are the Halloween cups?
Another option is the Vegan Brat and Tots from Friar’s Nook in Fantasyland.
This is a Beyond Meat sausage on a pretzel bun loaded up with sauerkraut and a side of tater tots. Pick up a packet of mustard to make your brat even more extra.
But perhaps my favorite option is the Plant-Based Loaded-Slaw Dog from Casey’s Corner on Main Street U.S.A.
It’s a vegan Beyond sausage topped with pickled slaw, BBQ vegan aïoli and roasted corn relish served with french fries or apple slices. It is SO good! I’d say it’s a much better option than the dog pictured above.
Once the party is about to officially get underway, you can make your way back to the front of Main Street U.S.A. to experience the first treat trail and side entrance into the party.
Cast Members will be directing day guests down the center of Main Street to the park exit while encouraging party guests to use the walkway that leads you “kind of backstage” from Town Square over to the area near Tomorrowland Terrace.
While you’re still in town square be sure to collect your free limited edition Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom card.
2019’s design is “The Phantasmal Fireworks Flash”. This specific card is only given out to guests attending Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and makes a great complementary souvenir. You can pick up your card at the Main Street Fire Station next to City Hall starting at 7 PM. Card distribution ends an hour before park closing, so keep that in mind.
Once that is out-of-the-way it’s time to pick up your special vegan trick-or-treat candy bag.
These bags are distributed at the same place where the regular trick-or-treat candy bags are distributed. They are also sometimes available at the trick-or-treat stations situated throughout the park.
Look for this inflatable signage to locate candy distribution locations.
Vegan Trick or Treat Options at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party
Once you’re ready to trick-or-treat, you have two options. You can collect Skittles or blue allergy tokens. Skittles are the only vegan candy offered at the regular trick-or-treat stations.
Cast Members are always happy to dig out a few packs of Skittles for me at each trick-or-treat spot when I collect an allergy token and tell them I’m vegan and that the only vegan candy they have are Skittles.
If you’re not into Skittles, you can request a teal token at each candy spot which can later be redeemed for vegan treats.
There are two redemption centers inside the Magic Kingdom. The most convenient location is in the Heritage House in Liberty Square adjacent to the Hall of Presidents.
The other location is at Town Square Theater near the park entrance. This would be a good option to stop in at at the end of the party when you are exiting the park.
Your options when redeeming tokens are for vegan treats or non-edible small toys.
Here’s the full list of treats available to vegan party guests:
???? Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Mini Bars
???? Enjoy Life Ricemilk Chocolate Mini Bars
???? Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Morsels
???? Enjoy Life Double Chocolate Crunchy Cookies
???? Enjoy Life Soft Baked Snickerdoodle Cookies
???? Enjoy Life Seed & Fruit Mountain Mambo Mix
???? Free2b Dark Chocolate Sun Cups
???? GoGo squeeZ applesauce
???? YumEarth Lollipops
???? Foam Candy Corn Bat Ornament
???? Stacked Ghost Ornament
???? Halloween Fuzzy Bookmarks
Skip the Surf Sweets Gummy Bears, Gummy Worms and Jelly Beans as they contain gelatin. And you’ll also have to skip the Werther’s Originals as they contain dairy.
PRO TIP: Redeem your allergy tokens earlier in the evening for maximum selection as the more popular items tend to run out closer to party close.
I also want to mention that token redemption is not a one token for one treat kind of thing. Bring one token in to the redemption center and the cast members there will fill your trick or treat bag up with whatever you would like.
Another specific treat to consider are the party exclusive refillable Popcorn Buckets filled with vegan popcorn. All “butter flavored” popcorn ???? at carts located through the Disney parks is vegan.
And be sure not to miss out on this Maleficent Dessert over at Storybook Treats in Fantasyland. Green lime Dole Whip is swirled into a black waffle cone and then topped with purple sugar. Ask to omit the chocolate Maleficent horns to make it vegan.
There are two “party exclusive” beverages available this year.
The Berry Blaster is a mix of cherry lemonade, blue curacao syrup and Sprite garnished with a lemon wheel and raspberries. You can find it at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe in Tomorrowland.
The other vegan option is the Pirates Horizon. This one is a mix of orange juice, passionfruit syrup and pineapple juice garnished with a pineapple wedge on a pirate sword skewer. You can purchase this one at Aloha Isle in Adventureland.
Special lighting effects help to set the mood…
Now let me tell you about a few things you can not miss during the party!
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Must See
The first one is Mickey’s “Boo to You” Halloween Parade. There are two parades nightly at 9:15 and 11:15 PM. The second parade is usually less crowded.
The Parade begins in Frontierland near Splash Mountain and ends on Main Street U.S.A. Near the park entrance.
My favorite scenes involve the ghoulish dancers and Haunted Mansion grave diggers.
The second thing not to be missed is the brand new “Disney’s Not So Spooky Spectacular” fireworks, projections and laser lights show hosted by Jack Skellington which takes place at 10:15 PM high above Cinderella Castle. This show replaces the Happy Hallowishes Fireworks.
Another underrated and sometimes overlooked attraction are the Cadaver Dans.
These fellas are a reincarnation of the Dapper Dans who perform on Main Street U.S.A. During normal park hours. They sing off the wall Halloween songs and tell jokes. Find them in Frontierland.
You can also listen to Madame Carlotta heckle guests outside of the Hauntd Mansion. Don’t miss out on these special party exclusive entertainers.
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Special Photopass Photo Spots
Also, don’t miss out on these special Photopass opportunities near the Haunted Mansion!
And the gravediggers near the water’s edge.
There are several “magic shots” located throughout the Magic Kingdom. Consult your guide map on where to find them.
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Must Do Attractions
During the party there are special enhancements to three beloved attractions.
The Pirates of the Caribbean attraction gets invaded by LIVE pirates on the hunt for Gunpowder Pete!
Space Mountain goes COMPLETELY DARK! I’m talkin’ NO lights and a rock music overlay that will have you screaming the entire time.
The Mad Tea Party also gets a new light and music overlay.
Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is definitely worth the money. There are a limited amount of tickets sold each night so crowds are generally lower than they would be during normal park hours. My tip is to go to one of the parties earlier on. The closer you get to Halloween, the more congested the parties become.
Guests of all ages are welcome to dress in costume. See Disney’s website for the rules on costumes.
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party takes place on select evenings through November 1st. Happy Halloween darlings!
