Disney Confirms Layovers for Mickey’s Not-So-Spooky Halloween Party

We’re more than halfway through Halloween, and Disney celebrated the occasion by sharing lots of exciting news with Disney fans. Disneyland Resort fans and West Coast residents have been told that Oogie Boogie Bash will return for another spooky year. And Disney shared that Walt Disney World Resort will be bringing back the incredibly popular Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Mickey’s Not-So-Scary had been replaced by After Hours: Boo Bash in 2021, but many guests expressed disappointment, which Disney apparently overheard and reverted to what worked in the past.

There will be lots of fun happenings this year at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Between a ton of great treat trails, dance parties, and rare character sightings, you definitely won’t be bored! Disney has also confirmed that party guests will be able to ride different rides than the ones guests have during the day! According to information shared by Disney Parks Blog:

Specially themed overlays will return to several popular Magic Kingdom attractions: Space Mountain, Mad Tea Party, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor.

At this time, Disney has not confirmed what type of stopover each of these attractions will receive. At Disneyland Resort during the Halloween season, Space Mountain has been given a spooky overlay and becomes Space Mountain: Ghost Galaxy. This layover theme is quite popular with Disneyland visitors, so it’s possible that Disney World‘s Space Mountain will receive the same type of layover.
