What Were the Reasons Behind the Cancelled Halloween Parties at Disney World
A few days ago we got the devastating news that all of this year’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween parties have been canceled. While we were hopeful this special event would still be held, Disney had decided that due to the current, unprecedented environment, it’s best to cancel all parties at this time.
Disney released this statement:
While assessing another fall special event, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, we 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, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.
It should be obvious as to why these parties would not be taking place this year- no fireworks, no parades, no meet and greets. The best part of the parties would not be happening so whats’s the point?
However, this tweet from @tallspookygirl made a very valid point also. There would be no Cast Members from the Disney College Program to work the parties.
Disney didn’t cancel MNSSHP bc of health concerns with covid…. they don’t have the workers for it without cps.

A majority of the Cast Members that work the holiday parties are in the Disney College Program and that was canceled back in April.
Disney released the statement regarding that issue.
This was not one of the confirmed reasons for the parties cancellations, but it makes an interesting point.
