Disney’s Magic Kingdom is in full Halloween mode with the return this week of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. This years MNSSHP festivities run for two and a half months – it must be some kind of record!
This annual holiday event includes the debut of Disney’s Not So Spooky Spectacular, a new Halloween-themed fireworks and projection show on and above Cinderella’s Castle.
Replacing the long-running HalloWishes fireworks display, the new pyrotechnics show features Jack Skellington in puppet form, who serves as host, as well as Mickey, Minnie and friends.
Jack has arrived to tell the audience about the unexpected things that can happen on Halloween night. As the story unfolds, Mickey and his friends appear as they embark on a trick-or-treating adventure. They soon find themselves drawn to a mysterious haunted house.
Once inside the house, the friends move from room to room, encountering skeletons, ghosts and a few favorite Disney villains for good measure , all of whom are projected onto the castle facade.
In addition to fireworks, and there are LOTS of those, the show also features lasers, lighting effects and a musical arrangement that includes songs from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.
The MNSSHP Boo To You parade is always a good mix of floats and well choreographed performers working the crowd.
Good food and drink is a big factor is any halloween celebrations so it goes without saying Disney has got very creative in that department.
Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party takes place select nights now through November 1st.
