For the first time in 14 years, we’re introducing a brand-new, Halloween fireworks spectacular to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom Park!

The spooky fun event, that happens on select nights from August 16 to November 1, will feature returning favorites along with all-new experiences, including the debut of an incredible new fireworks spectacular.  As you can see above in the very first scene to be released, this new show will feature state-of-the-art projection effects, lasers, lighting and dazzling fireworks that come together to tell a not-so-scary story about how anything can happen on Halloween night. The show will take guests along on a trick-or-treating adventure, where four friends – Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy – find themselves drawn into a mysterious haunted house. The journey takes them from one room of the house to another, encountering dancing skeletons, waltzing ghosts and a whole series of troublemaking Disney villains.

I’m already so eager to see this new show! And if you are looking for an extra special way to celebrate the brand new show in its first year, our fireworks dessert parties are the perfect option! You can add on this experience to savor frightfully delightful treats – including chocolate-dipped strawberries, cupcakes, ice cream, seasonal fruits, cheeses, sparkling cider, signature lemonades and other ghoulish goodies – and take advantage of dedicated, dazzling views of the new Halloween fireworks spectacular.

And there’s more! Returning to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party are the popular live show “Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular,” featuring the Sanderson Sisters and Disney villains the likes of Oogie Boogie, Dr. Facilier and Maleficent.

Other returning favorites include:

  • “Mickey’s Boo-to-You Halloween Parade,” which happens twice nightly and features favorite Disney characters dressed in their Halloween best, along with the Disney villains and a cavalcade of fiendishly fun floats.
  • Storybook Circus Disney Junior Jam in Fantasyland is the spot for all of the young partygoers to get their groove on with favorite Disney Junior characters like Doc McStuffins and Vampirina.
  • In Frontierland, prospector Cactus-Flower Cate rounds up youngsters for the “Frontierland Costume Promenade,” encouraging them to show off their costumes in a quest for the greatest treasure in the land – candy! The “Frontierland Costume Promenade” takes place just prior to each run of Mickey’s “Boo-to-You” Halloween Parade.
  • Trick-or-treating throughout the park!

And last but not least, the parties will feature attraction enhancements just for the Halloween party!

  • Hi Sarah,

    Thanks for this information! We will be eating at the California Grill on August16th and would like to return later this night to see the fireworks from the top of the Contemporary for this the first night of the new Mickey’s Not So Scary! I cannot find any information regarding the time of the fireworks?

  • Whenever I book my Disney Holiday, I also make sure that I come when Halloween is on. I love this time of year to visit as it’s so much fun and the fireworks, lit up castle and parade are my favourites. I love the image and I can’t wait to see all the new fireworks show. You do such a fantastic job with these events. Thank you.

  • Such an adorable image that I am saving it as a screen saver for Halloween! Thanks!
