MNSSHP with Allergies

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP) is one of the highlights of the fall season at Walt Disney World. The Magic Kingdom is transformed into a slightly spooky, but never scary Halloween wonderland.

While you have the opportunity to see many of the decorations during regular days at the parks, it is when the entertainment at night really shines and makes MNSSHP extra special.

One of the Hallmarks of the event is the opportunity to go to various “treat stops,” that are marked on a map to go trick-or-treating.

But, if you have a food allergy, the decorations are not the only scary thing in the park.

The candy changes each year, but it usually stays around the same type including Snickers, Milky Way, Butterfingers, M&Ms and Kit Kats, Werther’s Caramels, chocolate and yogurt covered Craisins, Halloween Peeps and more.

When you enter the park, you will be greeted by cast members that give you a wristband and a treat bag. If your child has an allergy exchange the bag for a teal colored one at Market Street, City Hall, Heritage House, Town Square Theater or any of the treat locations. When you reach a treat location, the cast member will then give your child a teal token that can be redeemed for allergy friendly goodies or non-food treats at Heritage House and Town Square Theater. These are also places where you can go if you have any questions.

You might also want to check out the City Hall treat location because they have been known to pass out allergy free candy.

As with everything, if your child does have a severe allergy, do not forget to carry their medication with you.

If an issue would arise make your way to the park’s first aid station, located near the entrance of the Crystal Palace restaurant situated toward the left of Main Street U.S.A., where they will be able to give you emergency treatment.

If your child has food allergies, how do you deal with special events where there is a chance to allergy exposure? Leave your comments below.
