'Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party' canceled amid coronavirus concerns, Disney says
ORLANDO, Fla. - Walt Disney World has canceled 'Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party' as the coronavirus pandemic continues.
In an update about seasonal events at Walt Disney World, park officials announced that the 2020 'Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party' at Magic Kingdom is canceled, as many of its hallmarks -- like fireworks, parades, and stage shows -- cannot take place in the current environment.
They also announced that Disney H2O Glow Nights, a nighttime event at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon, will also not take place for the remainder of 2020.
Looking even further ahead, they said they are monitoring conditions for 'Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party' and the 'EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays,' including the Candlelight Procession. A decision on those events will be made later.
