We know that Disney specializes in bringing magic to us on a daily basis. However, I think Disney goes over the top when it comes to Holidays. One holiday Disney does really well, is Halloween. Each year on select nights from September until the beginning of October, the Walt Disney World Resort hosts it’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. This party is a special ticket event that entertains its guests by transforming the Magic Kingdom into a ghoul’s delight from 7pm until midnight. Once the park is cleared at 7pm, the party begins with ghoulish music, characters you don’t normally see (such as the villains), and new entertainment like Mickey’s Boo To You parade and Hallowishes fireworks. If you or your love is a Halloween buff, this may be a fun time to plan the perfect engagement.
One of my favorite highlights of the Not-So-Scary parties is Cinderella’s Coach. Only on party nights can guests stand in front of the coach and take pictures. The most famous phrase the photopass photographers like to use during this time is “Give your sweety a smooch.” or “How about a kiss?”. This is to say that they are photographing couples and not families or little princesses. But wouldn’t this be a great place to drop down on one knee and pop the question?
Another great thing that happens at the parties, are that the princesses take pictures with their princes. This would be a great way to get character involvement. Usually you are placed in a room with 5 other groups but I’m sure if you were to ask the character attendants if you could have a room to yourself or wait until a room clears out and you are the last group, they would happily oblige. Especially if you tell them why. Disney Princesses are known for their interactions with the guests as they sign autographs and take pictures. This could make for a very memorable engagement.
If your love is very much into Halloween and ghosts then maybe you should stop by the Haunted Mansion to ask the big question. On Halloween party nights, the Haunted Mansion is done up with fog, ghostly entertainers, a picture with the horseless carriage where a ghost appears, and more. Who knows, your love may let out a bone chilling scream of delight when they here your question.
So what do you think? Is Mickey’s Not-So Scary Halloween party a place where you would pop the question? There are a lot of options for you to choose from when considering your perfect plan. Don’t worry, it’s not very scary.
