Halloween, a night for kids they say but that is not the case there are plenty of adults including myself that cannot deny how much they love Halloween. I personally enjoy the buildup to the costume-wearing, candy-eating, night. The Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at Disney World is the place to be and a must attend event. Where else can you enjoy all things Mickey, get dressed up in your favorite costume, and have the best treats in the world.
