Disney is continuing its push to refresh its after-hours Halloween parties on both coasts — today announcing changes to its parade at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom.
Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party kicks off in just a little over three weeks, on August 16 this year. That's 11 weeks before Halloween! The hard-ticket party runs for 36 nights during that stretch, so it needs plenty of attractions beyond the traditional all-ages trick-or-treating to entice fans to pay the $79-135 a night for the event.
Walt Disney World previously announced that it would debut a new Halloween-themed fireworks show for this year's party — Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular. Today, the resort announced that it will revamp (sorry, couldn't resist) the Mickey's Boo to You Halloween Parade, too.
Mickey and Minnie get new Halloween costumes to start the parade, which this year will feature a new Tomorrowland unit. The Incredible and Edna Mode will be included in that unit, followed by Buzz Lightyear and "Alien explorers discovering crystalline treasures on the surface of a planetary playset float."
Disney's also adding a new interactive treat trail at Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor.
On the west coast, the annual Halloween party has moved over to Disney California Adventure, where it's now called Oogie Boogie Bash – A Disney Halloween Party. The relocated event will include a new Halloween-themed production of World of Color called Villainous! and a villains invasion of the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail, plus a Mickey's Trick and Treat show and Descendants-themed dance party in Hollywood Land.
Oogie Boogie Bash – A Disney Halloween Party starts September 17 and runs Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday evenings through October 31, with each night's tickets ranging $110 to $145.Tweet
