Heading to Florida in the next couple of weeks? Why not visit Disney World for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party! This Spook-Tacular event runs after-hours and is filled with entertainment.
From 7 p.m. to midnight, guests are encouraged to wear their favorite Halloween costumes and trick-or-treat around Magic Kingdom. Kids can meet up with the character – who are dressed up in their very own costume – and take part in some of the fun entertainment options.
Mickey’s “Boo-to-You” Halloween Parade is led by the Headless Horseman and followed by the whole gang from Mickey to the Disney villains.
There is also the bewitching “Happy HalloWishes” fireworks spectacular illuminates the sky in bursts of orange and green fireworks, while Cinderella Castle is draped in eerie hues and ghostly apparitions flit along the park’s rooftops.
The Boo-to-you Parade takes place at 8:15 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. with HalloWishes Fireworks Spectacular in between at 9:30 p.m. Special lighting, music and theming effects combine to transform areas of the park into happy haunted hollows.
The Halloween Party returned to the Magic Kingdom in September and runs for 23 select nights until November 1, 2011. Remaining party dates are: October 23, 25, 27, 28, 30 and 31; and Nov. 1.
