Vegan Guide to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party in the Magic Kingdom

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 Vegan Veggie Rice Bowl at Pecos Bill in Disney’s Magic Kingdom

It comes with roasted vegetables and white rice topped with black beans. Guacamole is $2.00 extra, the toppings bar is not back, but they give you all the fixins on top now. Roasted corn salsa and pico de gallo look like a pretty solid combo to me!

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.

Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is definitely worth spending the money on. 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.

First on the list, 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. This year they are giving out a reusable treat bag, and even though the allergy bag is separate, they will give you the regular treat bag if you’d like to take that home with you too. 

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.

Vegan Guide to the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party in the Magic Kingdom

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 next to City Hall 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.

Vegan Guide to the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party in the Magic Kingdom
Here are the different types of candy/treats available in 2019

 

Here’s the full list of treats available to vegan party guests:

 Skittles
 Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Mini Bars
 Enjoy Life Ricemilk Chocolate Mini Bars
 Enjoy Life Dark Cocoa Loco
 Free2b Dark Chocolate Sun Cups
 Smarties
 YumEarth Lollipops

And that’s it. By contrast, this was the list of available items in 2019: 

 Skittles
 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
 Smarties
 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. This year for 2022, the popcorn bucket will be Mummy Mickey, which is available all day, not party-exclusive. Later in October 2022, a Zero popcorn bucket will return to the party.

Unfortunately there are no “party exclusive” vegan treats available this year. Wah Wah.

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.
