It may be hard to think about Halloween when it’s still technically summer, but in Walt Disney World things have gotten Not So Scary. On Friday (Aug. 25), a full two months before the spookiest day of the year, Magic Kingdom held its first Halloween party of 2017, and the accompanying merchandise is giving us some extreme envy.
The motif at this year’s Not So Scary Halloween Party follows years past with a vampire Mickey Mouse leading the way. Vampire Mickey (who still has a friendly smile, implying he’ll sip on sugar-free apple juice with those fangs instead of blood) shows up on a wide variety of merchandise from limited edition pins to popcorn buckets. Vampire Mickey is even feature on a Christmas ornament, in case you want to celebrate Halloween from August until December.
Mickey’s friends Donald Duck, Goofy, Minnie, and Pluto also get in on the Halloween action with their own not-so-scary makeovers. Donald joins Mickey as a vampire, Goofy is a mummy, Minnie is a witch, and Pluto is a skeleton. The “fab five” are featured on a wide variety of merchandise, including limited edition MagicBands, T-shirts, and Halloween tote bags.
Of course, there are also candy buckets, Mickey Mouse ears with ghosts and bats, and a wide variety of Disney-themed costumes. Some items are available for Disney and Halloween fans to buy online, but the majority of items need to be purchased in the park.
