Last year, we didn’t have a Halloween party at all at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World due to the state of the world. This year, things have improved slightly, but not to the point of a full return of Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. Instead we have Boo Bash, a modified After Hours event similar to Villains After Hours, without the live stage shows or fireworks. With tickets at a premium of $129 – $169 per person depending on the date, we wondered if Boo Bash is worth it and what exactly are the vegan treats you can enjoy at Boo Bash?
You may recall, a Disney After Hours event includes complimentary snacks and drinks: popcorn from the popcorn carts, ice cream bars from ice cream carts, and bottled beverages such as water, soda, and PowerAde. Additionally several attractions will be open, and character spots will be available for photo ops and character cavalcades appear down Main Street, U.S.A. with some familiar friends. With Boo Bash, treat stations will also be located around Magic Kingdom offering candy – including some vegan allergy-friendly options similar to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.

What Trick-or-Treat Candies are Vegan at Boo Bash?
Enjoy Life brand Chewy Bars, Free2b Sunflower Butter Cups, YUMEARTH organic sour beans, YUMEARTH organic lollipops, Smarties, and non-candy craft items are also available. Werther’s Original sugar free chewy caramels are also available at the allergy stations, but not vegan, so keep in mind and skip those on your visit.

What Other Dining Options are at Boo Bash?
There are a handful of specialty themed snacks being offered at an additional charge at Boo Bash, however sadly, none of the snack items are vegan or modifiable.
There are a few drink options which may be vegan if you remove the whipped cream such as the Prince John Sucker Slush. Remove the whipped cream and you should be good to go, but check on the ingredients before ordering, and ask if they are putting a caramel drizzle on it, which isn’t listed on the sign but has been added, there may be dairy in the caramel. The Mocha Chip most likely has dairy in it, but double check, you may be able to get it without dairy. The Apple Ginger Dale Frozen Drink may also be vegan without whipped cream, but again, with all of these, double check the ingredients list. We will update if we hear confirmations on any of these drinks.
