posted on October 25th, 2013 by Erin Glover, Social Media Director, Disneyland Resort


One of my favorite parts of Mickey’s Halloween Party at Disneyland park is watching the Cadaver Dans perform along the Rivers of America. They emerge from a fog aboard their raft, singing Halloween-inspired songs. This year, as part of “Limited Time Magic,” this barbershop quartet from beyond the grave will entertain grim, grinning ghosts and guests alike from the balcony of the Haunted Mansion in New Orleans Square during regular park hours. This is your chance to catch them outside of Mickey’s Halloween Party! They’re appearing in the daylight for a limited time only, October 28 – November 3.

Check out the video below for a peek at one of their performances during Mickey’s Halloween Party at Disneyland park.
