Mickey Mouse Club Costumes

Mouseketeer costumes are a great option as a family or group Halloween costume idea – especially if you are headed to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at Walt Disney World!

Are you familiar with this event? Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a special ticketed event which includes trick-or-treating at the Magic Kingdom and exclusive shows. Costumes – for kids and adults – are a highlight of the party. We went several years ago and weren’t going to miss out on that component of the evening!

We wanted to wear something handmade, under the condition that it is cool and comfortable. After all, it’s Florida and HOT. A few friends (and Disney experts) gave suggestions. In fact, I can’t take credit for the idea; my friend Mandy suggested the Mouseketeers, and I loved it!

Our little guy is a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse fan. The theme song to the show includes spelling M-I-C-K-E-Y-M-O-U-S-E… just like the original Mickey Mouse Club. So, it was a perfect choice for a family Halloween costume at Disney

The Disney World cast members really liked the Mouseketeer costumes. I’d imagine that the nostalgic theme resonated with the cast members.
