2022 Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Tickets See Significant Price Increase Over 2019

If you were feeling a little sticker-shocked by the price of 2022 Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Tickets, you weren’t alone! While we are all excited for the party to return in full force, let’s look at the pricing compared to years past.

2019 Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Tickets

The most recent year Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party was offered at Magic Kingdom, 2019, was a unique year.

First, it was the earliest tickets had ever gone on sale for the Halloween event. Tickets went live all the way back in January 2019!

Second, Walt Disney World offered a unique All Access Pass that included every Halloween Party except for Halloween night for $299* per adult and $284 per child.

In 2019 the cheapest single dates for the party came in at just $79 per person, while the most expensive, such as tickets for Halloween night, cost $109 per person.

2021 Boo Bash Tickets

While no ticketed Halloween offering occurred in 2020, we did get a Halloween-themed after-hours event in 2021.

Typically, after-hours events at Walt Disney World have been shorter than parties. After-hours events also boast low attraction wait times and much lower attendance than a typical Magic Kingdom party. Additionally, after-hours events tend to have less in the way of entertainment but more in the form of free food and beverages when compared to a party.

Finally, after-hours events tend to be more expensive than Halloween and Christmas parties at Magic Kingdom.

In 2021, Boo Bash tickets ranged from $129-$199. As a comparison, After-hours events announced for 2020 before the Covid-19 closure were $129.

2022 Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Tickets

Now Disney Parks has announced that they will once again offer Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party in 2022. Prices range from $109-$199.

We see a significant increase when we compare 2019 and 2022 prices. On the cheapest night, a party ticket will cost you an additional 38% this year over 2019 ($79 and $109, respectively). For a ticket on October 31, your price increase is 47% ($135 and $199, respectively).

Compared with last year’s ticket prices, the difference isn’t so stark. For the priciest night, Halloween Night, the party is priced identically to Boo Bash in 2021. On the cheapest nights, a $109 ticket to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is around 18% cheaper than a Boo Bash ticket. Whether the value of these two events is comparable remains to be seen.

What Would We Expect the Increase to Be?

Had everything been “normal” and 2020 and 2021 had offered regular Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Parties, what would we have expected to see in terms of price increases?

The percentage increases are date-specific, and that’s important to keep in mind when comparing years. We are also trying to compare tickets from 2022 to tickets from 3 years ago.

So, let’s try to compare the increase between this party and the last party by comparing the percent increase between 2016 and 2019.

Between the years 2016 and 2019, the cheapest party ticket only increased by about 10% from $72 to $79.

During that same three-year period, the price of an October 31 ticket jumped almost 29% from $105 to $135.

If we expected those 2016-2019 rates of increase, the prices for the 2022 party would range from about $87-$174. They are instead $109-$199. Therefore, they definitely have increased more than we would have reasonably anticipated based on the history of the event.

  1. Tickets for the canceled event in 2020 began at $85 for advance purchase, rising to $144 for October 31st, this is two years later with inflation up everywhere. It isn’t too shocking

  2. Too rich for my blood. I have been a regular attendee of the parties on both coasts, but at this price point the value proposition is gone for me. Pay more get less is the mantra of the new Disney. I’m out, more room for the pixie dusters.

  3. I was so excited to see that Mickey’s Not so Scary was going to be held when we were already going to be in Disney. The last time we went in 2017 to the party, I believe it was $75 or around there.

    That is crazy! That’s almost an extra $500 for our family of 4! I feel like I’m going to eventually be priced out of most things we enjoy at Disney

  4. I went to MNSSHP back in 2017 and we each paid $100 for our after-hours event ticket. It was well worth it for $100 bucks. We then went to Boo Bash in 2021 and paid $165 per person. This time it was not worth it. To be fair, we did watch and read reviews of the event prior to purchasing and we bought the tickets based on Disney YouTubers and bloggers saying it was different but great. I get it was during the time of Covid, however, only having 1 place open to get food (and by the food I mean sweets), no specialty churros as promised, and shops closed at the start of the event which was a bummer, and not much entertainment. So, yes, drastically different compared to 2017 with a major price increase.

    We will not be going this year for a couple of reasons. First, the tickets are going on sale way too early in my opinion. For the 2021 event, they went on sale in mid-June. Second, we like to go as close to Halloween as possible, thus we understand we pay more for our tickets. However, given the cost of the ticket last year and the overall experience last year, and only being able to ride 4 rides last year we will pass. In my personal opinion considering Disney hasn’t fully gone back to normal with their open and close times you’re better off buying a full day’s park ticket and experiencing the Halloween stuff you can that way, plus shopping will be available.

    Just to do a comparison of 2021 Special Events; the Christmas Special Event at Magic Kingdom was well worth the money compared to the Boo Bash. Those tickets last year went on sale in mid-August. And don’t get me wrong I love Halloween heaps so there is no bias here.

  5. glad we took the grandkids before cheapact rolled into disney. teired the vey merry christmas beforehand to check it out for our grandkids and it was way oversold. hope with the prices they are charging now they will not oversell tickets again. that would be a complete waste of money. however, as we have all seen, bob the beancounter really does not care about the disney magical experience in the least. just da money!

  6. My family of 6 went in 2018 and my 4 kids loved the Not So Scary Halloween Party. We were planning a big trip this October, but the cost of tickets will be nearly $1,000 for this one event. No thanks. We’re reconsidering our entire trip. I can take my family on a trip to France for what Disney costs now.
