Disney Cancels Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party
As Disney prepares for the reopening of the Walt Disney World theme parks next month, they’re taking a measured and deliberate approach to planning that applies appropriate new health and safety measures. The resort continues to follow guidance from government and health officials for responsibly operating the theme parks, so they can make the right adjustments to park offerings, including upcoming fall events.
After assessing Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, it was determined that many of its hallmarks – stage shows, parades and fireworks – are unable to take place in this new, unprecedented environment. With that in mind, Disney has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Additionally, Disney H2O Glow Nights, the nighttime special ticket event at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon, will not take place for the remainder of 2020. Guests who have already bought tickets to these events will be assisted with refunds over the coming weeks.
Looking ahead to the holiday season, this may spark questions about Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays, which includes the Candlelight Processional. Disney World is monitoring their new environment closely, and will make a decision on these events as they continue to learn more from government and health officials.
Disney says: “The goal is to explore every option and look at ways in which we can still host events and festivals full of Disney magic, while still operating responsibly with the health and safety of guests and cast members in mind”.
