Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Parties will return to Magic Kingdom Park on August 16 – and this year, guests will receive the “treat” of the brand-new “Disney’s Not So Spooky Spectacular” fireworks show.

With just days to go until the big reveal, Disney Parks Live Entertainment has been putting the finishing touches on the spectacular – and our cameras were on-hand to grab you a first look.

In “Disney’s Not So Spooky Spectacular,” Jack Skellington from “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas” serves as host and has come to tell a “not-so-scary” story about how anything can happen on Halloween night. His ghost dog, Zero, flies off carrying everyone along on a trick-or-treating adventure, where four friends – Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy – find themselves drawn into a mysterious haunted house. Their journey takes them from one room of the house to another, encountering dancing skeletons, waltzing ghosts and a whole series of troublemaking Disney villains. The show will also include state-of-the-art projections and lasers, plus lighting and dazzling fireworks that will fill the sky above Magic Kingdom Park.

  • Is it just me or did Disney finally found a voice actress to play Minnie Mouse?

  • Any word if the perimeter fireworks will be back?

  • Tim, I think Russi Taylor probably recorded Minnie’s voice for the new Halloween and Christmas firework shows before her passing.

  • Hi! DOes anybody know if this new show will be live stramed as Disney did on the Happily Ever After one?

  • @Tim it’s not just you; I just watched the Halloween show and it immediately struck me that wasn’t Russi voicing Minnie there. I was just looking to talk about this, but you’re the only one besides me who I’ve seen notice so far. You can really tell it when she says “His collar says ‘Zero'” (“says” goes deeper than Russi’s Minnie) especially. I would think whoever it was would’ve been mentored by Russi for at least a few years now, as Bret was intended to be under Wayne. I wonder when we’ll get to learn more about whoever she is!

    The show is AMAZING. I’m floored.
