BREAKING: New Halloween ‘Disney After Hours BOO BASH’ Event Coming to Magic Kingdom in August

Disney has not announced the return of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party for 2021, instead revealing a new Halloween-themed Disney After Hours event coming this fall to Magic Kingdom Park! 

“Disney After Hours BOO BASH” will take place on select nights, Aug. 10 – Oct. 31, 2021, from 9 p.m. to midnight. Spooky festivities will include Halloween-themed cavalcades, character sightings throughout the park, special performances by the Cadaver Dans, décor, lighting, music, treat stops with plenty of candy and more.

“Disney After Hours BOO BASH” tickets will grant admission to Magic Kingdom Park as early as 7 p.m. without the need for a day park ticket or Disney Park Pass theme park reservation, giving you time to enjoy even more of your favorites.

Guests young, old and immortal can dress in costume for the occasion and get their fill of Halloween candy. As an important reminder, costume masks are not permitted for adults; they can only be worn by children younger than 14. In addition, all guests are required to wear approved face coverings during the event.

In case you aren’t familiar with Disney After Hours, it’s a special event that’s open to a limited number of guests, after normal park operating hours. The experience offers low wait times at more than 20 attractions from classics like the Haunted Mansion and Space Mountain, to newer favorites like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. We have reviews of several versions of the event:

Tickets will go on sale in June, with an early purchase window available to guests of select Walt Disney World Resort hotels.

Although happy to hear parties returning…. Disney is making me sad that now “special events” and festivals are not even special anymore. Just like if you get ice cream every day for dessert, than going out for ice cream isn’t special anymore. Halloween on Aug 10th is hardly appropriate. Wait til Labor day for heavens sake. Make planning a trip fun. Sometimes you choose the fall, or Xmas season or for flower and Garden (which is also wayyyyyyy too long) Just my take.

I kind of agree with this, BUT!!! really hard to celebrate this event when you have kids in school and live out of state, I for one am glad they do it in August, because it gives my family a chance to attend.

We already have reservations for late August and was hoping for Mickey’s Not So Scary, but this has some advantages. Probably smaller crowds and the cavalcades are better than parades in that you don’t have to waste time getting there early for a good spot. As long as the candy is plentiful, my grandkids will be happy.

This sounds too much like a replacement for MNSSHP, and if that is the case, this is a HUUUUGE disappointment for many!! Notice how the time period is exactly when MNSSHP is, and I don’t see how they could do both, as they’d be closing MK down every night at 6.

Cavalcades are great, but if I’m paying a premium price for a special event, I want the real parade. Same goes for “character sightings” – I want the real meet & greets. Also fireworks. What cheapened experience.

Dear Disney, how about restoring some of the perks that I’m already paying for, such as your shows or extending after hours for on-property guests before implementing more pay-for-play services.
