The Disney Parks Blog has shared new details on this year’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom – the first being the name of the new fireworks spectacular that was announced earlier this year.
“Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular” will be hosted by Jack Skellington himself, from Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” The fireworks show will feature projection effects, lasers, lighting and bright, exploding fireworks above Cinderella Castle.
In the new show, Jack has arrived to tell a not-so-scary story about how anything is possible on Halloween night. Jack’s ghost dog, Zero, then flies off and takes everyone on a trick-or-treating adventure, where Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy find themselves drawn toward a mysterious haunted house. As they travel from one room to the next, they’ll encounter all sorts of spooks – from dancing skeletons to waltzing ghosts, along with plenty of Disney villains.
In addition to the new fireworks spectacular, many attractions in the park will receive enhancements just for the Halloween festivities. New for this year, guests can interact with the comedic cast of Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor as they learn all about the human holiday of Halloween.
Set sail on the high seas with Pirates of the Caribbean, where a crew of live pirates will be discovered as they search for treasure. Space Mountain will go completely dark once again, hurling you through the vast emptiness of space to a new “hard-rockin’” soundtrack. The Mad Tea Party in Fantasyland will feature special lighting and music to add an extra bit of madness to this fantastical attraction.
As for live entertainment, guests can enjoy the fan-favorite “Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular,” the Headless Horseman’s parade down Main Street, U.S.A., “Mickey’s Boo-to-You Halloween Parade,” Monstrous Scream-O-Ween Ball and “Storybook Circus Disney Junior Jam,” which will feature Fancy Nancy alongside her other Disney Junior friends Vampirina and Doc McStuffins.
