This year's version of the after-hours, hard-ticket event at the Magic Kingdom features a new show, the "Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular." Drawing upon characters from the relatively obscure 1993 Disney film, Hocus Pocus, the show features three sisters who "plan to use their magic to throw the best, evil Halloween party this side of the graveyard." Here's a preview:
Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is the first of this year's Halloween events to start at major theme parks around the country. Moving from family-friendly trick-or-treating events to more adult-style horror, tonight is the team member preview for Halloween Horror Nights 25 at Universal Studios Florida. Theme Park Insider will be at the park for the official opening Friday night. We also will be at the opening of the Universal Studios Hollywood version of Halloween Horror Nights the same evening, and will bring coverage of both events to you this weekend.
One week from Friday, Mickey's Halloween Party kicks off at Disneyland, and we will be covering the west-coast version of Disney's family Halloween event for you then, too.
