Sadly, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, the annual extra-ticketed, after-hours Halloween party at Disney’s Magic Kingdom, has been canceled for the 2020 season.
The hallmarks of the event, such as stage shows, trick-or-treating, character meet-and-greets with villains, parades, and holiday-themed-fireworks can’t take place due to this year’s pandemic, as it would be difficult to ensure proper social distancing.
We are still hoping that Halloween will come to the parks in the form of the annual classic fall decorations, special merchandise, and ghoulish treats. No official announcement regarding this has been made, however.
For those of us who cannot visit this year, let’s bring some of the Disney Halloween spirit to our homes. Here are some ideas for arts and crafts that will come in handy for a Disney-themed Halloween home.
For good measure, we did stir the cauldron and used some spells to create a fabulous Halloween GIVEAWAY for you. One lucky winner will receive 13 Disney Halloween Trading Pins and a blue-ray version of Tim Burton’s The Nightmare before Christmas. So read on, start crafting your decoration, and enter our giveaway.
There is no reason not to have a Disney Halloween safely at home. Join family and friends via zoom. Kids and grownups alike can dress up in their favorite Disney character costumes, show their Halloween decorations, and have a pin-trading event virtually. You can mail the traded pins after the Halloween party.
In preparation for the virtual party, families can work on handcrafted decorations. Check out these simple arts projects and create 4 different Mickey pumpkins.
No Halloween party is complete without food. So here are some of my favorites for you to try at home. Every family member will love the Mickey Mouse ghost cupcakes or the spooky Jack Skellington goodies.
Of course, there is the matter of costumes. There are plenty of websites for those who want to make their own, and Disney just released their Halloween collection. So there are no excuses to become a prime candidate for joining the Haunted Mansion.
So get going and don’t forget to watch not so scary movies such as The Nightmare Before Christmas and Hocus Pocus. And yes, we really want to see your pictures—pictures of the crafts, the recipes, and, eventually, of your Halloween party. Email them to me (email@example.com), and we will share them on our social media platforms.
