Actually, some of the Halloween cavalcades and the original ones that first debuted when Walt Disney World first reopened will run seven days a week, with a few others seeing a reduced schedule.
Here is the current schedule as of Wednesday, Sept. 16:
- Jack Skellington “Nightmare Before Christmas” Cavalcade: Saturday-Wednesday (Thursday and Friday off)
- Mickey and Friends “Boo to You” Cavalcade: 7 days a week
- Disney Villains Cavalcade: Thursday-Monday (Tuesday and Wednesday off)
- Winnie the Pooh Cavalcade (Tigger, Pooh, Eeyore, and Piglet wear Halloween costumes): 7 days a week
- A Goofy Cavalcade: Tuesday-Saturday (Sunday and Monday off)
- A Royal Princess Processional: 7 days a week
It doesn’t appear that the Tinkerbell & the Lost Treasure or the Fantasyland Friends Cavalcade will run during the Halloween season.
It’s unclear when this schedule officially begins, since the Disney Villains Cavalcade ran on both Tuesday, Sept. 15, and Wednesday, Sept. 16. A Goofy Cavalcade also didn’t run on those specific days. But, seeing as the Halloween season only just started, there’s a good chance Disney wanted to debut all of the themed-cavalcades in the beginning to show guests what they can expect.
Halloween officially kicked off at Magic Kingdom on Sept. 15 and will run through Oct. 31. In addition to the seasonal cavalcades and the return of Mickey pumpkin decorations along Main Street U.S.A., guests of all ages can wear costumes during regular park hours.
Even with the parks being modified and the addition of health and safety protocols, there’s still a lot of Halloween fun to be had at Magic Kingdom.
