Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party will take over Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom for 36 nights starting August 16th. With the first party only 8 days away, here is an overview of new and returning favorites awaiting partygoers.
New Floats Joining the Boo-To-You Halloween Parade
Make sure to see the Boo-To-You Halloween Parade held at 9:15 p.m. and 11:15 p.m. This year the parade will have two new floats, a Tomorrowland-themed unit will feature The Incredibles, including the fashionista Edna; a Buzz Lightyear float comes complete with alien explorers.
Also new this year is a ghost bride who will join the Haunted Mansion part of the parade. To top it off, Mickey and Minnie Mouse will be showing off their new Halloween costumes.
Brand-new Halloween-themed Nighttime Show and Fireworks
Hosted by none other than Jack Skellington from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, the new fireworks, dubbed Disney’s Not So Spooky Spectacular, are to include state-of-the-art projection effects, lasers, and, our course, fireworks.
Attractions Get Halloween Makeovers and Monsters Visit with Trick-or-Treaters
Throughout the night guests get to collect candy along designated trick-or-treat trails. New this year is that Monsters will interact with trick-or-treaters on the Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor trail. Candy is given out generously at 14 different stations throughout the different lands. Guests with food allergies collect treat tokens in a teal-colored treat bag. The tokens can be redeemed for allergy-friendly treats at the Town Square Theater of the Liberty Square Ticket Office.
Popular attractions can be experienced with a minimal wait, and some receive special enhancements. A crew of live pirates interacts with guests inside the Pirates of the Caribbean ride; the Mad Tea Party ride spins to special lighting and music; and you can enjoy Space Mountain in complete darkness, while listening to a new soundtrack.
Shows, Character Meet-and-Greets, Dance Parties, and Music are Fun for the Entire Family
The Sanderson Sisters—Winifred, Mary, and Sarah—from Hocus Pocus return to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party; their Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular is not to be missed. Their wicked show takes place at 8:30 p.m., 10:45 p.m., and once more at midnight.
Kids will love to dance with Mike Wazowski and Sulley at the Monstrous Scream-O-Ween Ball at the Rockettower Plaza Stage in Tomorrowland. At the Storybook Circus Disney Junior Jam, you can dance and sing along with Nancy Classy from the Disney Junior series Fancy Nancy as she joins her Disney Junior pals Vampirina and Doc McStuffins.
For many guests, meeting rarely seen characters is the highlight of the party. Be on the lookout for Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum and the Queen of Hearts, Cruella De Vil, Tarzan, Jane and Terk, and even The Seven Dwarfs.
The famous Dapper Dans Barbershop Quartet joins the fun, transforming into The Cadaver Dans for the occasion and entertaining guests with haunted melodies, such as “The Oogie Boogie Song” and “Grim Grinning Ghosts.”
