Mickey’s Boo To You Halloween Parade

  • Location: Parade route (begins in Frontierland by Splash Mountain and ends on Main Street, U.S.A. by fire station)
Parde viewing for Boo To You

Mickey’s Boo To You Halloween Parade celebrates all things spooky — but in a Disney-friendly way.

You’ll be able to see beloved characters in costume, Haunted Mansion’s grave diggers and Constance Hatchaway, guitar-playing and singing skeletons, and so much more.

The parade is held twice nightly during the party, with the first showing at 9:15 p.m. and 11:15 p.m.

It kicks off in Frontierland taking the normal parade route and ending on Main Street, U.S.A. by the fire station.

The second parade is usually the least crowded. Keep in mind that the parade will enter the Main Street area about 15 minutes after the official parade start time. We recommend watching the second parade in Frontierland for easiest viewing.

In the past, guests along Main Street waiting for the parade to start were also treated to a Zootopia Party Patrol which featured Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde from Zootopia.

But, for 2022, Max Goof dressed as Powerline and a 90s dance crew will lead the parade!

Even before the parade starts, there is one major highlight and a truly signature moment of the entire evening: the appearance of the Headless Horseman.

Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular

  • Showtime: 8:30 p.m., 10:45 p.m., and midnight (August – September); 7:40 p.m., 8:35 p.m., 10:45 p.m., and midnight (October)
  • Location: Cinderella Castle stage

Are you ready to have a spell put on you? By the Sanderson Sisters, that is.

The Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular is a show that happens at various times on the Cinderella Castle stage. It’s one you shouldn’t miss and thankfully you have many chances to catch it.

Winifred, Mary, and Sarah sing and dance, alongside some other wickedly entertaining villains (Dr. Facilier from The Princess and the Frog and Oogie Boogie from The Nightmare Before Christmas, among others).

Usually, the villainous stage show runs at 3 different times in August and September and 4 times in October.

Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular

  • Showtime: 10:15 p.m.
  • Location: Cinderella Castle

While HalloWishes no longer runs (it came to a close in 2018), Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular is another nighttime spectacular starring Jack Skellington as the narrator.

There are spooky tunes, lasers, projections on Cinderella Castle, and fireworks.

Even Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy join in the spook-tacular show. Keep in mind that the fireworks extravaganza only takes place once during the party.

Because of the use of projections, much like Disney Enchantment (the regular nighttime show), the best views will be close to the castle.

The Cadaver Dans Barbershop Quartet

  • Showtime: 7 p.m., 7:45 p.m., 8:30 p.m., 9:50 p.m., and 10:30 p.m.
  • Location: Frontierland (balcony by Country Bear Jamboree)

The Cadaver Dans, aka the Dapper Dans dressed up in their Halloween best, sing popular “tombs” for guests in Frontierland.

You should be able to watch them at various times throughout the party, but you certainly can’t miss them thanks to their costumes, makeups, and ghoulish voices.

Disney Junior Jam

  • Showtime: 7 p.m. – midnight
  • Location: Storybook Circus
