Here you can view the brand new Disney guide maps for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, 2017! Just click an image to open and enlarge.

 

Remember, if you are attending this year, the event will begin at 7pm but you can enter as early as 4pm. You will have five spooktacular hours to attend the party, so go with a plan beforehand. Also, we can’t tell you how many guests make the mistake of wearing heavy costumes- just don’t. It is no fun if you sweat all night and wind up with heat exhaustion!

Costume Guidelines:

  • Disney reserves the right to deny admission to or remove any person wearing attire that is considered inappropriate or attire that could detract from the experience of other Guests.
  • All Guests may dress as their favorite character, but may not pose for pictures or sign autographs for other Guests.
  • Costumes must be family-friendly and may not be obstructive, offensive, objectionable or violent.
  • Costumes may not contain any weapons that resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon.
  • Costumes may not contain sharp objects, pointed objects or materials that may accidentally strike another Guest.
  • Guests who do not adhere to these guidelines may be refused entry into, and/or removed from, unless his or her costume can be modified to meet the above standards.

For Guests ages 13 and under:

  • Costumes and some masks may be worn, as long as the mask does not cover the entire face and eyes are visible.

For Guests ages 14 and older:

  • Layered costumes or costume props that surround the entire body are strongly discouraged and may be subject to additional security screening.
  • Costumes may not reach or drag on the ground. (e.g. full-length Princess dresses)
  • Capes may be worn if the length does not go below the waist.
  • Themed T-shirts, blouses, sweatshirts, and hats are acceptable.
  • Acceptable accessories include: transparent wings, plastic light sabers, toy swords, and tutus. Headwear may be worn as long as it does not cover the face.
  • May not wear masks of any kind.

Do not forget a poncho, as it is usually rainy for about half the parties each year.

If you have kids in your group, watch the first parade/stage show. That way you can take them trick or treating during the rest of the night!

Don’t forget to have your picture taken by a WDW photographer, either.  You will see them all over the place- it is worth it!

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is beginning it’s annual run on August 25! We are setting up our Mad Hatter clients with tickets RIGHT NOW- so don’t miss the fun. This  event will return to Magic Kingdom on select nights, beginning August 25. This hard-ticket event features Halloween decor, amazing entertainment, Disney characters in seasonal costumes, Disney attractions, Happy HalloWishes Fireworks, trick-or-treating and much more. This year’s event dates are: August 25 and 29; September 1, 7, 10, 12, 15, 17, 19, 22, 24, 26 and 29; October 1, 3, 5, 6, 9, 10, 12, 13, 15, 17, 19, 20, 22, 24, 26, 27, 29 and 31; and November 1, 2017.

Now let’s talk about another of our favorite Mad Hatter adventures- the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival! This year we will have 75 days to enjoy some culinary fun (and delicious food). It will include 35 marketplace locations (this includes 5 new locations this year), 39 dishes to sample, 65 new drink/cocktail concoctions, 225 Eat to the Beat concerts, and some special surprises along the way. ABC’s “The Chew” will return for this year to broadcast five episodes from the festival- and we will be attending one of them for our Mad Hatter client family to see. August 31 is the first day of the Festival.

If you are interested in fun Irish happenings, check out the Great Irish Hooley at Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant in Disney Springs from September 1-4. This good time celebrates all things Irish- song, food, and drink, and will last into late night. This year features entertainment such as The Raglan Roots Coalition, Jake Richardson, and more. It will also feature the Raglan Road Irish Dancers and champion Irish dancer Ciaran Keating on stage.

Farewell, Great Movie Ride- and Hello to Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway

By Rhonda Moffit, Moffits-Mad Hatter Adventures  July 31, 2017

20170509_125539.jpg

We have been hearing rumors since 2016 that The Great Movie Ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios was going to be replaced. It was at the D23 Expo this year that the surprise announcement was made- the last day for the iconic attraction will be August 13th, 2017.

Everyone was surprised, as this means that there will be only four attractions operating until the new Toy Story Land opens next year at DHS. Shocked as we were, it was interesting to see what will replace the classic ride.

mickmin2

This will be the first time Disney has ever featured Mickey Mouse as the star in his own attraction. Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway will be inspired heavily from the same shorts that are shown on the Disney Channel. It will have Mickey, Minnie, and a starring line up of their other famous pals.

The attraction will have a simple setup, as it will allow guests to step through a movie screen and join the cast of Disney favorites as an adventure progresses, making you the star of your own Mickey Mouse short. They say anything could happen and that it will be a zany, out of control adventure with twists, turns, and more surprises.

One of the things we find most interesting about the new attraction is the promise that it will have amazing and dazzling visual effects- without 3 D glasses. The new enhanced screen technology is being referred to as 2 1/2 D. Kevin Rafferty, Imagineer, presented information to us within the D23 panel and stated that teams are inventing new technologies that turn the regular flat world of colorful cartoons into a dimensional display of “amazingness”. We were then presented with a clip of a forest being transformed instantly to a cityscape, which you can see HERE.

The new attraction will feature an all original story and an original song. The pre-show will feature Mickey and Minnie getting prepared for a picnic while Goofy attempts to be an engineer. Riders will then board their vehicle, and be pulled through the movie screen into the adventure. Be prepared to seek hidden Mickey’s during this experience, as the attraction will have the largest amount of them placed in any attraction, ever.

There is a lot of controversy about this project, as The Great Movie Ride has been one of the favorite attractions at DHS for a long time- since opening day. Some Disney fans commented to us that they were very sad that Disney will not be updating the ride instead of changing it, and that it could be done with a larger variety of classic and modern film memorabilia. The Great Movie Ride is the last original attraction remaining from that historic opening day of DHS. When it closes in just a few days, it will be the end of an era.

Mission Space- New Space Themed Disney Dining Experience on the Way

By Rhonda Moffit, Moffits-Mad Hatter Adventures  July 31, 2017

One of the things that were announced at this year’s D23 Expo is out of this world! There will be a brand new restaurant at EPCOT that will offer an amazing dining experience and spectacular views- from above the Earth in space.

The new restaurant will be adjacent to Mission:Space and will invite all guests to journey into space and dine while among the stars. The new restaurant will be operated by the same Restaurant Group, Patina, that operates many other Disney dining locations, including Tutto Italia and Via Napoli at EPCOT and Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs.

We’ll be sure to let you know as this progress. Keep checking back for details, and in the meantime be sure and reach for the stars.
