On Friday evening, we attended the very first Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party of 2016 at the Magic Kingdom. While I am still composing my thoughts on the overall event this year, I figured I would share some video of the experiences we recorded during our night of fun, including a few short reviews of some of the party-exclusive snacks. Let’s take a look…

Zootopia Party Patrol Pre-Parade

New for 2016, gone is the “Creepa Crew” and here is the Zootopia Party Patrol, a new pre-show of sort for the guests waiting on Main Street U.S.A. for the Boo To You Parade.

The Headless Horseman

A staple of the event, the Headless Horseman rides again just before Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade. However, it is still at that rather slow speed that has been kind of a letdown over the last few years…

Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade

Perhaps the most beloved parade at Walt Disney World, Boo To You returns in 2016 with a newly-enhanced segment for Wreck-It Ralph characters. The parade is performed twice nightly during the event.

The Hocus Pocus Villains Spelltacular

While not new for 2016, new lighting effects and pyro make the Hocus Pocus Villains Spelltacular stage show even more fantastic then before, even though it is now only presented 3 times an evening.

Happy Hallowishes! Fireworks

The Halloween Party’s fireworks show is back, once again unchanged from the previous years.

Celebrate the Magic – Halloween Edition

The Magic Kingdom’s nighttime projection show is back, and just in time for the Halloween season is a special segment featuring the Disney villains. This show is presented just before the one performance of Happy HalloWishes! fireworks.

Party Exclusive Snack Reviews

A series of exclusive snacks are available at select locations only during the party. Below are reviews of the Pumpkin Spice Cupcake at Gaston’s Tavern, the Ghoulish Strawberry Lemonade Slush at Friar’s Nook, and the Candy Corn Soft Serve ice cream at Storybook Treats.

Are they playing the Haunted Mansion music thruout the park again or is it still that sorta cheesy/sorta Halloween dance mix? I was sooooo disappointed when I went and heard the change last year. Thanks for letting us know!

Does the Zootopia crew walk the entire parade route?

I would also like to know if the Zootopia crew walk the whole parade route… Phineas and Ferb and the Creepa Crew were definitely in Frontierland in 2014.

You guys had me in stitches with the candy corn ice cream. Also I love the Jack Skellington TARDIS shirt. Where did you get it? My husband’s two favorite things and I know it would be a fantastic holiday gift!
