If you are visiting Walt Disney World and the Magic Kingdom during Halloween time, attending Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a must-do! One of the featured events during the party is Mickey’s Boo To You! Halloween Parade and it is not-to-be-missed.
Don’t be late to the parade – you will want to be able to see the very beginning of the parade for a glimpse of the Headless Horseman. Unfortunately, the night we attended had been wet and rainy, so for safety’s sake, the Horeseman didn’t ride.
Rainy night aside – the parade was so much fun! Everyone was in good spirits... and we always love seeing our favorite classic Characters.
Of course, we were expecting to see some of the best Disney villains, and we were not disappointed. First, Hook and Smee have taken Wendy and the Lost Boys hostage…
…and then we see that Captain Jack Sparrow is enjoying his Pirate spoils.
Things get very spooky with these grave-digging butlers making their appearance. They do an amazing dance and bang, clank and drag their shovels on the pavement… making sparks shoot from the ground!
More Haunted Mansion love is felt as the tombstones pass and the dancing party ghosts twirl on by.
After the creepy (but really beautiful) ghosts move down the street, we are treated to a more colorful harvest scene.
Halloween wouldn’t be Halloween without candy, so sugary treats get top billing in this parade as well. Take a deep breath in when these floats drive by and you may smell the sweet scent of the treats.
One of the great things about attending the special holiday parties is that you often have the chance to have rare Character sightings. Ralph and Vanellope ride with the candy floats and we get to see fun villains like Oogie Boogie from The Nightmare Before Christmas and the hyenas from The Lion King (and as my kids would want me to mention… the Lion Guard as well!)
Mickey’s Boo To You! Halloween Parade is a great event to attend during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Usually it is performed twice during the party and if you can wait, the second parade is often less crowded. However, you never know, you may want to watch it twice!
