Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Shows

Updated 8/7/2018

There are four elements that make up the entertainment for each Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party: Dance Parties, Happy Hallowishes Fireworks, Mickey’s Boo-to-You Parade and the Villains Mix & Mingle. The dance parties offer you an opportunity to dance the night away with your favorite character and are available throughout the party. I recommend visiting the dance parties later into the night in order to make the most of your limited time.

Happy Hallowishes Fireworks


This is one of my favorite Disney fireworks shows. It combines pyrotechnics with great Halloween themed music and even has a 180 degree finale of vibrant explosions that will really shake you. You’ll hear from the Ghost Host, Oogie Boogie, Ursela and other Disney villains. Be sure to stand somewhere behind the Walt and Mickey statue. If you get too close, you’ll miss some of the timed fireworks. If you get too far away, you won’t be able to see the projections upon the castle. I recommend standing somewhere between Casey’s Corner and the Hub on Main Street for the best view. Arrive 15-30 minutes early for the best locations.

Mickey’s Boo-To-You Parade

One of the best parades in all Disney parks! If you have your space secured 15 minutes before the start time, have your camera ready for the ride of the Headless Horseman. During the parade many great characters parade past, but the highlights are the Haunted Mansion Gravediggers who grind their shovels on the ground creating sparks, the Haunted Mansion dancing ghosts and the Ghost Riders in the Sky. I recommend attending the second parade. You won’t have to secure a spot as early. The best spots for the first parade are usually taken 60 minutes early and the same spots could be found for the second parade 15-30 minutes early.

Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular

The mischievous Sanderson Sisters from Disney’s “Hocus Pocus” return to the mortal world during the Halloween season. With only a few hours to run amuck, the three sisters use their magic to throw the best, most evil Halloween party this side of the graveyard!


Cadaver Dans

The Cadaver Dans are the party version of the fabulous Dapper Dans singing group that appears on Main Street daily.  They dress up for the haunted occasion and sing some special songs.

  1. I’m not really sure – I read through the comments here and saw someone ask you if they could sit somewhere for the parade, fireworks and the hocus pocus show you and replied with “You can do that. Read my review on the Villains Soiree” but I’m not sure where to find that? Thanks!

  2. Not sure if you have seen this yet, but disneyworld.com’s schedule is showing different times from last years. Fireworks at 10pm, last parade at 11:15pm. This messes up your touring plans, I think, because I don’t think you could still watch the 2nd parade at 11:15pm and still manage to get in line for Jack & Sally?

  3. Since they are changing up the Halloween Party and now there is the Hocus Pocus Villain Spectacular, do you think we can still expect the other same characters to appear? Do you think the sisters will be doing autographs or if there will be other changes to the party? I have my tickets for Sep 22 and I am SO FREAKING EXCITED!! I’m literally on your website daily!!

    • Most meets will continue. Rumors say more villains meets. Sisters won’t meet or autograph, just show. I’ll have a full update after party 1

  4. Hi Kenny. Can you stay in one spot for premium viewing of the Boo Parade and Celebrate the Magic and Halowishes back to back (either 8:15 then 9:15 or 9:15 then 10:30). If so, which spot or spots would your recommend? Thanks a bunch, Stacey

  5. Can you confirm whether the Headless Horseman ONLY makes an appearance at the 1st parade and not the second parade?? I heard that on a podcast. Thanks!
