Calling all Hocus Pocus fans! Don’t miss the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular, a party-exclusive show featuring the mischievous Sanderson Sisters from the beloved film. Join them as they summon Disney villains to help create the ultimate Hocus Pocus Party Potion. This spellbinding performance is not to be missed.
Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular Fireworks
As the night sky darkens, get ready for an incredible fireworks display as Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular Fireworks illuminate the sky and are hosted by none other than the Pumpkin King himself, Jack Skellington. This mesmerizing show is the perfect way to cap off an unforgettable evening.
Magic Kingdom Attractions
During the party, many of the Magic Kingdom’s attractions are open for guests to enjoy. From classic rides like Pirates of the Caribbean and Haunted Mansion to family favorites like Peter Pan’s Flight and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, there’s no shortage of thrills and chills. Some attractions even receive a Halloween overlay with haunting (or not-so-spooky) effects, adding an extra element of excitement to your experience. Disney has also announced that party goers will have an opportunity to enter the grid by joining a virtual queue for the new and exciting Tron: Lightcycle Run!
Get ready to meet some of your favorite Disney characters in their Halloween costumes. Throughout the park, you’ll have the opportunity to interact with Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, and many more as they don their festive attire. Keep an eye out for special appearances, like Minnie, Daisy, and Clarabelle dressed up as the Sanderson Sisters in the Boo-To-You Parade. As if that weren’t enough, there’s even a rare opportunity to meet and greet Jack and Sally from the beloved film, The Nightmare Before Christmas.
Dress to Impress
Are you ready to make a statement?! Dressing up is encouraged for both children and adults, adding an extra touch of excitement to the festivities. But before you embark on your costume adventure, it’s important to keep a few guidelines in mind. You don’t want to compromise comfort or style, especially considering the hot and humid climate of Orlando from August to October.
To beat the heat while still looking fabulous, opt for costumes made from light, airy, and breathable materials. This way, you’ll be able to enjoy the party without feeling weighed down. However, if you’re looking for a more unique approach, you can always consider Disney Bounding. Wondering what that is? Let me explain.
Disney Bounding is a creative way to pay homage to your favorite Disney, Star Wars, Pixar, or Marvel character. Instead of wearing a full costume, you can take inspiration from the character’s color scheme and incorporate it into your outfit. It’s a fun and trendy way to show off your love for Disney while keeping things stylish and comfortable.
So, whether you choose to go all out with a traditional costume or embrace the Disney Bounding trend, your attire will surely make a lasting impression at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Be sure to read Walt Disney Worlds Guidelines on Dress Code before you run out and grab those spooky accessories. https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/en_CA/faq/parks/dress/
