Disney Says “Special Announcement” Is Coming & We Hope It’s The Return of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!

UPDATE: Here’s the “special announcement” we’ve been waiting for! Disney After Hours BOO BASH Is Coming to the Magic Kingdom

Ok, let the speculations begin! Disney has announced they will be celebrating “Half Way to Halloween” beginning tomorrow (May 7). While this usually means special recipes and fun Halloween DIYs… we’re super curious about one particular comment in their announcement. They said they will have a “special announcement”…. so… what could this special Halloween-themed announcement be?! Oh how we hope it’s the return of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!


As shared by Disney: “The #HalfwaytoHalloween fun begins tomorrow morning, May 7! Throughout the day, we’ll be sharing nothing but treats including a special announcement as well as a few “shriek peeks” and some dreadfully delicious dishes. Also, we’re digging up a “mummy approved” Disney+ playlist, not-so-spooky planDisney tips, frightfully favorite Halloween wallpapers and much more.”

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party was cancelled last year due to COVID-19. Being one of the most popular special events at Walt Disney World, it was a huge bummer but understandable. We’ve been awaiting word if/when Mickey’s parties would return to Magic Kingdom… and this might just be what we learn about tomorrow! Fingers crossed! We’ll be sure to post as soon as the “special announcement” is released tomorrow.

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
