"This fall, ghosts and ghouls of all ages are invited to don their favorite costumes and celebrate all things haunted during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party," Disney Parks Blog announced.

Disney Parks Blog teased the announcement on Wednesday, tweeting: "We smell an announcement coming tomorrow" followed by broom, castle, and candy emoji's. 

It's been 3 years since the Halloween event was held at Magic Kingdom, with the last one taking place in 2019. In 2020, the event was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic and in 2021, Disney held its ‘Disney After Hours Boo Bash’ in its place. 

In a sign of trying to get back to normal guest experiences, this month, Disney World lifted the last of its mask requirements for all guests visiting its resorts, theme parks, and dining districts, making them optional for visitors.
