Disney World Fall 2019: The Best Parties on the Planet

April 12, 2019 | Gina Schuetter

What is the number 1 reason to travel to Disney in fall 2019?

You may think I would recommend being one of the firsts to see Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge at Hollywood Studios (opens August 29th!) or imbibing on the wonderful drinks and food during the International Food and Wine Festival at Epcot (August 29th-November 23rd). But you’d be wrong!

The number one reason to travel to Disney in the fall? That would be the parties!! Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, specifically.

These parties are offered select nights from August-December at The Magic Kingdom. If you’ve never been one of these parties, you’re missing out. There are new parades and fireworks, treats for party-goers, and overlays on your favorite rides.

The parties last from 7pm-midnight, but your ticket will allow you to enter the parks starting at 4pm. This is a great way to save money for an all-day ticket into the parks, and allows you to rest during the morning and afternoon so you can party all night. All other guests who have been in the park all day are corralled to the exits at 7pm so the party-goers have free reign over The Magic Kingdom and its rides.

The Halloween party is a great place to see the villains, the gravediggers’ spectacular performance in the parade (led by the Headless Horseman), traditional characters is Halloween costumes, watch a special Halloween fireworks show, and partake in trick-or-treating throughout the Kingdom.

Tickets are now available to purchase for the following dates:
