Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, a family-friendly Halloween party done Disney-style at the Magic Kingdom, is adding a new stage show for its 2015 dates.
“Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular” will take place on the Castle Forecourt Stage and feature the mischievous Sanderson Sisters from Disney’s “Hocus Pocus” movie. The sisters were last seen in the 1993 comedy film, but now they’re back for one night during the Halloween season.
Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party returns to scare families at Magic Kingdom from September 1 through October 31.
On 26 select nights during this time period, the event will take place after-hours with guests mingling with Disney characters in their favorite Halloween costumes. Partygoers can also show their Disney Side and dress up in favorite costumes.
Entertainment includes the twice-nightly “Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade” led by the infamous Headless Horseman, at 8:15pm and 10:30pm, and “HalloWishes,” a green and orange fireworks spectacle complete with Disney villains, caps the evening festivities at 9:30pm.
Disney villains take center stage with “Villains Mix & Mingle – Live on Stage” castle show; and Club Villain, an all-new nightly character dance party experience takes over the Diamond Horseshoe Saloon in Frontierland. Mischievous villains will be available for guests to meet all night long in locations throughout the park.
