TAMPA (WFLA) – Walt Disney World has canceled ‘Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party’ due to coronavirus concerns.
Disney made the announcement in an update for seasonal events on the Disney Parks Blog.

With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.”
Additionally, Disney H2O Glow Nights, the nighttime special ticket event at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon, will not take place for the remainder of 2020.
As of now Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays have not been canceled at this time.
