The Boo To You Parade is back at this year’s Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom. We quickly noticed that two characters were missing from the parade.
Boo To You Parade
The Boo To You Parade is a fan favorite Halloween parade that features many different ghoulishly floats in company of iconic characters accompanied by quite the catchy soundtrack that you will find yourself easily singing along too.
One exciting fact is that the 2022 Boo To You Parade is the first fully staffed parade at Walt Disney World since the parks reopened in July 2020. It is very close in resemblance to pre-pandemic parades which is quite wonderful!
The parade occurs twice nightly and is offered on select nights from August 12 through October 31, 2022 during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom. Mickey’s Boo To You Halloween Parade begins in Frontierland at 9:15 pm and 11:15 pm and ends on Main Street, USA. Do note that a separate Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party admission is required and all entertainment is subject to change without notice.
Although the parade seemed to be back to normal with a full cast of performers, there were a couple of characters that were missing, a float and some characters that were on the parade route in a different manner.
Characters Missing from the Parade
One of my favorite segments during the Boo To You Parade is when Clarabelle Cow hosts a square dance during a Frontierland hoedown which includes Chip N Dale, Big Al, Wendell, Br’er Fox and Br’er Bear. However, the last two of the characters, Br’er Fox and Br’er Bear were not present at the first night’s showing of the Boo To You Parade. Instead, they were replaced with two other County Bear Jamboree favorites, Liver Lips and Shaker.
It is unknown why the changes took place, but if we had to guess it would be due to the imminent closure of Splash Mountain and Disney removing all references to Song of the South from the parks.
Another part of the parade that we noticed had seen a change is that The Incredibles are no longer riding in their solo vehicles. Instead, they now appear riding inside of the Disney Hollywood Studio’s cavalcade vehicles. Lastly, the green alien float was absent from the parade.
