Mickey’s Halloween Party guests can enjoy trick-or-treating, the exclusive “Halloween Screams” fireworks (which will happen despite the rumored demise of Disneyland Froever) and more. New this year, the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow (from Disney’s animated feature, “The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad”) will make his spooky ride through the heart of Disneyland park each night of the party, just like at Walt Disney World.

Below is video of the old full-speed gallop the Headless Horseman once did before the parade at Walt Disney World (he now travels at just a trot typically):
