Best Treat at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

 

This past week I attended Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom park in Walt Disney World! This Halloween Party is a separately ticketed event that takes place on select nights throughout the fall season in Magic Kingdom. This event is family friendly and focuses more on the fun side of Halloween! It is the perfect balance of spooky thrills mixed with cute decorations and fun costumes! There is something for everyone!

 

 

An iconic part of Halloween for many of us is candy and all things involving sweets and treats! At Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party you will have the opportunity to actually trick or treat in the Magic Kingdom! Guests of all ages can feel like a kid again as they visit special treat locations throughout the park and receive candy and other yummy snack items.

 

 

In addition to stocking up on candy and treats from the complimentary treat locations around the park, you can also purchase specialty treats. These specialty treats are exclusively available just during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. I tried a few of these specialty desserts and there was one particular one that stood out to me as my favorite!

 

 

My favorite dessert of this year’s 2019 Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party was the Haunted Mansion inspired wedding cake! This cake was meant to look like a small personal size version of the bride from the Haunted Mansion Constance’s wedding cake! The dessert is named “Constance’s for Better or For Worse Wedding Cake” This treat is a Halloween Party Exclusive! It can be purchased at the Liberty Square Popcorn Cart.

 

 

This dessert is a citrus-scented cake with raspberry Bavarian cream, white chocolate glaze, icing pearls, flowers, and is topped with a chocolate axe. This cake had a moose consistency and was very light and decadent.

 

Every aspect of this treat made me a fan! From the fun theming inspired by my favorite Magic Kingdom attraction – to the fact that it was the most delicious and unique tasting treat I enjoyed on my vacation! Be sure to say “I do” to this cake when you visit Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party this year! Contact your Kingdom Magic Vacations Travel Planner today to plan your next adventure.

New Scare Zones Coming To Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights!

 

A frightfully fun part of Halloween is strolling the streets and seeing all the ghouls and goblins out and about! At Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights, the park give that concept a twisted spin with scare zones jam packed with terrifying monsters and demented fiends. At this year’s Halloween Horror Nights, five scare zones will be featured in Universal Studios Florida. Additionally the Academy of Villains, a fan favorite show will return with an all-new powerhouse show! Let’s look at some of the details for each of the scare zones coming to this years event.

 

Zombieland Double Tap

Now is the time to keep in mind those rules of survival. Based on the hit film and its upcoming sequel, this scare zone puts you in the middle of the United States of Zombieland. The infection has spread and bloodthirsty zombies are everywhere you turn. The most important rule to remember: Always double tap!

 

Rob Zombie Hellbilly Deluxe

You may be familiar with his music, now it’s time to actually live it. You will get to walk into the heavy metal horror of Rob Zombie’s music and imagery in this pulse-pounding scare zone. From otherworldly beings to brutal maniacs, guests will come face-to-face with his twisted creations as the music cranks to a frenzy.

 

Anarch-cade

With this scare zone an 80s-inspired arcade has taken over Avenue of the Stars. At first glance, you may think it’s a party. However, you quickly learn that “Game Over” means a permanent end for you. A gang of neon slashers are out to play and this is one game you won’t want to lose.

 

Vanity Ball

You may be familiar with the expression: Beauty is pain. This scare zone takes that literally. In the streets of Hollywood, your flesh becomes the canvas as blade-wielding artists slice up willing participants into horrific living works of art. Here, going under the knife takes on a whole other meaning.

 

Vikings Undead

You might be familiar with the brutal Viking warriors. It’s terrifying enough thinking about facing them alive. Now picture facing them as the undead. They have risen and laid siege to Central Park with an onslaught of gore. Bloodlust never dies.

 

This year’s Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando takes place on select nights from September 6th through to November 2nd. Contact your Kingdom Magic Vacation Travel Planner today to plan your next visit to the Universal Orlando Resort!

Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights 2017 Has A Special Request

How I Survived My Very First Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando

I have never been much of a haunted house fan, but when I got a chance to experience Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights, I was both excited and a little bit nervous.  To be honest, I was a LOT nervous.

How I Survived My Very First Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando

In the interest of full disclosure, I was personally invited to a VIP Event by Universal Orlando and I was treated to an incredible evening of food, drink, and more than my fair share of chills and thrills.

Once we arrived at Universal Orlando we were escorted to a VIP staging area where we joined our other intrepid adventurers until it was time for us to venture out into the park and survive not only the houses themselves, but also the street walkers.

This year, the entire park was transformed into a not-so-living nightmare from AMC’s The Walking Dead.  Dozens of zombies walked all over spooking and scaring passers by who were often not paying enough attention to see them coming.

How I Survived My Very First Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando

And then we arrived at our first house, based on the movie The Evil Dead movie re-make, where we were encouraged to “relive ‘The Most Terrifying Film You Will Ever Experience’ as gruesome Deadites tried to possess our souls.”  It was terrifying and amazing all in the same breath.

Next was  The Cabin in the Woods house where several of our nightmares came to life.  I was a fan of this movie and actually looked forward to this house…with much trepidation.  And it was incredible.  The last half of the house was based on the Control Room – the last 5 minutes of this house are not to be missed…if you can keep your eyes open that is.

My next favorite house was based on the the classic horror film “American Werewolf in London”.  Universal actually brought in some of the original creature creators from the movie and you can tell.  The werewolves are unbelievable.  They are scary, but at the same time, beautiful.  They were very life-like and much more malevolent that you would expect.

How I Survived My Very First Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando

Next came the house based on the movie Resident Evil and like the title states, evil resided in this house.  It was a mix of creepy monsters and killer sci-fi.  My favorite section was about 1/2 way through the house.  The Resident Evil movie franchise is based off the video games of the same name.  One of the sub-rooms in the house simulated the game player pressing pause.  It was terrific!  There was so much going on in all these houses that you could not see it all, and in this house there was a ton going on!

And this was just the half way point.  Time for a much needed break.

After a relaxing respite from the ghosts and ghoulies,  it was time to head over to the back side of the park to experience AMC’s The Walking Dead, Urban Legends: La Llorona, AfterLife, and Havoc 2: Derailed.  These houses were smaller but still packed quite a scary punch.

My favorite house of these four was Afterlife.  They incorporated a 3-D element into this house and was less scary than it was really funky-cool.  There were several elements that were just incredible to look at…but there were also some truly scary moments as well.

How I Survived My Very First Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando

After these houses we enjoyed another break while we waited for Bill & Ted’s Excellent Halloween Adventure where we were invited to “party on” as those two most excellent dudes return to skewer the biggest names in entertainment and pop culture.

While this type of event might not be for everyone, it is an experience that you should at least attempt.  The houses are not a horrific as you might think, so if you are worried that you can’t handle it, you might be selling yourself a little short.  But remember that all of the rides and attractions are still running throughout the park, so you can still enjoy your night at Universal Orlando even if you don’t enjoy the haunted houses.

5 Simple Tips To Enjoy Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party

If you are anything like us, you love Fall and Halloween at the Magic Kingdom and especially Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!  These parties are extra special events where they close the Magic Kingdom to regular park guests and bring in some extra special Halloween decorations and treats that you can only experience at the Party!

Here are 5 tips to help you enjoy these parties and get the most treats with no tricks!

1.  This is a Family Friendly Event  – Like the name implies, this is a Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.  Unlike other Orlando Theme Parks, Walt Disney World offers a purely family-friendly environment that is suitable for children of all ages.  There are some dark areas, but if your kids loves the Haunted Mansion, that is about as dark as the entire evening gets!

2.  Wear A Costume – Children are always allowed to wear Princess Outfits or Pirate Costumes in Disney Parks, but adults do not have that luxury…except for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Parties!  As long as you wear a costume that does not cover your face (ie. a full head or face mask) you are welcome to enjoy the party.  Remember, it’s still pretty warm in Orlando during the Fall, so make sure that your costume is lightweight an not too heavy!

5 Simple Tips To Enjoy Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party

3.  Trick Or Treat All Night Long – During the party, there are several locations located all around the Magic Kingdom…and you can trick-or-treat as much as you want.  You can return as much as you want and as the night progresses, many Cast Members often become more generous in their treat giving.  We suggest bringing your own bag though…the bags that Disney provides are a little small.

4.  Arrive A Little Early – Even though Mickey’s Party officially starts at 7 p.m., which is when all of the entertainment actually begins, guests can enter with their Halloween Party tickets as early as 4 p.m. This is not something Walt Disney World advertises, but it absolutely is true, and you will see plenty of other guests arriving at 4 p.m., and Cast Members in their Halloween outfits at the turnstiles.  This allows you to enjoy a full 8 hours inside the park, for 1/2 the price!

5.  Make Time to Meet Characters – Haloweentime is one of the best times to meet your favorite Disney Characters, and during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary parties, all your favorite characters are dressed in special Trick-or-treat costumes!  Past favorites are Winnie the Pooh and friends, Snow White, and all 7 dwarfs – they are all not to be missed!!

5 Simple Tips To Enjoy Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party

Mickey’s No-So-Scary Halloween Parties are Hard Ticketed events, which means you have to buy a separate ticked for entrance to the party.  The parties run on select nights in September and October from 7:00 pm to Midnight.

Evil Comes Out To Play At Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens

This fall, for select nights, Howl-O-Scream 2013 unleashes thirteen evils, to be exact. The Surgeon, Butcher, Psychopath, Clown, Voodoo Queen and their demented friends will torment you through unexpected terrors lurking around every corner, including new houses, all-new scare zones and thrilling live entertainment. They will leave you screaming for more.

Evil Comes Out To Play At Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens

The after-hours Halloween event at the Tampa theme park is themed around 13 evils incorporated into its haunted houses and scare zones. 

The Haunted Houses for 2013

Death Water Bayou

Death Water Bayou – Deep in the bayou the #6 Voodoo Queen mystically transforms lost wanderers into her minions of evil with black magic. Here, her night servants roam with a zombie-like hunger and seek to grow her collection. The darkest evils lurk in shadows. Get out before you fall victim to her spell.

The Basement

The Basement – From Momma’s secret ingredient to Granny’s bone-ground flour, Momma’s Meats’ award-winning recipe has always been a family affair that’s only created in the BASEMENT.  Escape the depths of the BASEMENT before she and #4 Butcher turn you in to the secret sauce! She always said it took blood, sweat and tears!

Circus of Superstition 3-D

Circus of Superstition 3-D – You’ve tried to avoid black cats and sidewalk cracks, but all those years of bad luck caught up with you! The #13 Clown challenges you to survive 13 superstitions in their 3-D Tent of Terror, but it will take more than luck to escape his whole new dimension of fear.

Blood Asylum

Blood Asylum – As lightning rages and thunder crashes outside, “The Creature” escapes from his holding cell in a high-security asylum for the criminally insane.  Now this sadistic deviant is running rampant, skinning his former cellmates and turning the mental hospital into his own torture chamber. This serial killer’s bloody playground will drive you out of your mind with fear.

Nevermore

Nevermore – Beating hearts, swinging pendulums and a raven’s cries haunt the manor of Lenore, creating a demented and twisted nightmare. Step inside to experience the gothic terror that maddens the lord of the house and feel delusion overcome reality. Find your way out of this horror story before paranoia authors your final chapter.

Zombie Mortuary

Zombie Mortuary  – No one remembers how the epidemic started, but now, the #9 Zombie and his undead friends live here. They infest this small town funeral home and feed on the fresh flesh and brains of mortuary mourners to satisfy their insatiable hunger. Avoid the walking dead or you may find yourself deeper than six feet under.

Ultimate Gamble

Ultimate Gamble – Under sleek Vampire reign, the once-vibrant Ultimate Gamble casino glowed. Now werewolves have overthrown their mortal enemies and are running rampant in the casino. The carnivorous beasts have caught on to the scent of fresh blood inside the closed casino. Will you make it out alive before your luck runs out!

The Experiment

The Experiment* – Researchers challenge your fear tolerance and mental endurance in this never-been-done-before Experiment. In this exclusive study, “test subjects” endure psychological tests and must face top fear-inducing elements, from roaches and snakes to needles and darkness. How far is too far in this study of fear? Will you survive The Experiment?

Howl-O-Scream runs for 14 select nights between Sept. 27 and Oct. 26.

Admission is $89, although there are discounts and options including VIP Packages, the Fright Feast dinner buffet, front-of-line passes and multiday passes. For tickets or more information, contact your Kingdom Magic Travel Planner.

*A new reservations-required (and extra charge) experience is The Experiment, which turns guests into psychological studies. They must “face fear-inducing elements, from roaches and snakes to needles and darkness,” according to a Busch Gardens media release. Experimentees must pay Howl-O-Scream admission, then $50 for this house (Additional guests, up to four, for $10 apiece).

Face Your Deepest Fears At Halloween Horror Nights At Universal Orlando

For 27 select nights beginning September 20, Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights returns as the nation’s best and most intense Halloween event. Guests will confront extreme Halloween entertainment that cannot be experienced anywhere else.

Face Your Deepest Fears At Halloween Horror Nights At Universal Orlando

Halloween Horror Nights is Universal Orlando’s annual Halloween party, and it is one of the most popular events in Orlando. Especially if you’re a fan of horror films, this is a ‘don’t miss’ event for those looking for something a little edgier than Disney. For 25 nights this fall, Universal Studios Florida will be home to all-new haunted houses, street experiences, hundreds of frightening “scareactors” and live shows. Guests will be immersed in the horrors of years’ past and introduced to brand-new frights.

These are usually temporary structures set up specifically for the event (although, in the past, certain attractions have been converted into haunted houses for the event). Each of the houses is themed differently. As you walk through the attraction, any number of things or people are likely to jump out at you. Don’t worry, they won’t ever touch you, but they come pretty close. Instead of the scare zones of the past, this year there will be street experiences – the horror will come to you.  Everywhere you go, you will encounter The Legions of Horror, creatures who have escaped from an ancient buried cemetery.

The 2013 Haunted Houses

Resident Evil: Escape from Racoon City – Raccoon City is overrun with Umbrella Corporation’s most terrifying experiments, and the only option is complete destruction.

An American Werewolf in London

Street Experiences – AMC’S The Walking Dead

Face Your Deepest Fears At Halloween Horror Nights At Universal Orlando

AMC’s The Walking Dead has overtaken the streets of Universal Studios. From Atlanta to the forests and into Woodbury, you’ll have to fight your way through some of the most iconic locations in the show if you want to survive the night.

  • The Fall of Atlanta – The smell of death is in the air as you make your way past an iconic tank, sandbag barriers, and decayed rotting corpses on your journey through this decimated city. But be warned—the city’s not empty.
  • Woodlands – Tread carefully through these woods, as you never know who you might encounter. Lurking deep in the hidden depths are unforgettable scenes and characters from Seasons 1, 2 and 3.
  • Survivor’s Camp – There’s no one telling ghost stories at this derelict campsite, but there are plenty of undead. Will you dare to go closer to the eerily abandoned RV? Keep your wits about you or you might become a ghost story yourself.
  • The Farm – Something’s burning and it’s not a Sunday roast. Gasoline fumes ignite your senses as you encounter the smoldering remains of a singed country farm. See and smell the putrid barn, the red tractor, and more as you learn what’s causing that horrifying stench.
  • Clear – Turn around and live—proceed and face your fate. Stick together as you head down this street, because the spiked barriers are there for a reason. If you refuse to heed the spray-painted warnings, you’re in for a terrifying walk that will feel like an eternity.

Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom Hitchhiking Ghost Card Debuts at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party

When Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party returns to Magic Kingdom Park next week, Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom fans are in for an additional treat – the chance to pick up an event-exclusive game card!

Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom Hitchhiking Ghost Card Debuts at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party

Just in case you’re new to the game, Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is an in-park interactive experience that allows guests join Merlin’s quest to defeat Disney Villains who are scheming to take over Magic Kingdom Park. Guests use maps to search for villain hideouts throughout the park, visit magic portals and use spell cards to foil a villain’s plan. The quest begins in the Firehouse on Main Street, U.S.A., where you can pick up key cards, spell cards and maps (additional cards can be purchased at select merchandise locations).

This special card features the Hitchhiking Ghosts from the Haunted Mansion attraction and lets us “sorcerers” tap into the supernatural power that lies within the Haunted Mansion’s graveyard. Players can use the card to direct poltergeists to scare away any Disney villains they may come across on their journey.

This special event card will be distributed separately from the regular Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom card packs (yes, you can pick up both while attending the party). The Hitchhiking Ghost card is available at both the Magic Kingdom Firehouse and the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom location behind Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe during the party, and guests must register to play with their party ticket and event wristband in order to get one.
