Disney World and Disneyland Announce Major Halloween Parties

There will be plenty of opportunities for wholesome family scares.

It may only be April, but the Mouse is already planning ahead for Halloween 2023. This week, Disney World and Disneyland announced the parks' Halloween programming. At Disney World, Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party will return, while the Oogie Boogie Bash is being set for Disneyland. Both events will require entry tickets in addition to park passes.

Here's what you need to know about these mildly spooky festivities.

Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party will run for 38 nights between August and November. In August, the event will be held on Tuesdays and Fridays only, starting August 1. In September, the party will be held on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays, with the exception of the Sunday before Labor Day (the party will take place on Monday, September 4 instead). In October, you'll be able to attend on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays, with the addition of Monday, October 9. And in November, it will only be on November 1.
