BREAKING: New Fireworks Show Coming to Magic Kingdom Halloween Party in 2019 Along with 3 Different Ride Overlays

Despite not being announced when tickets went on sale earlier this year, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party 2019 at the Magic Kingdom will host a brand-new fireworks spectacular, as well as new overlays for existing park attractions.

While no name for the show is known yet, the new nighttime spectacular will replace “Happy HalloWishes”, which debuted back in 2005. The new fireworks and projection spectacle should include many of the new tricks that came with Happily Ever After replacing Wishes in 2017, like state-of-the-art projection mapping, lasers, and lighting. We expect this show will share a lot of music and content with the upcoming, yet-to-be-announced World of Color – Villainous show for Disney California Adventure, but that’s just speculation on our part.

Last year marked the introduction of three attraction overlays for just during the Halloween Party: Pirates of the Caribbean, Space Mountain, and the Mad Tea Party. As you may recall, Pirates of the Caribbean and Space Mountain received mostly negative reviews while there was a lot of praise for the lights choreographed to music over at the Mad Tea Party. You can relive the saga of Gunpowder Pete below…

This year will bring three new overlays at three different Magic Kingdom attractions: the Tomorrowland Transit Authority Peoplemover, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad in Frontierland, and the Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor. While we don’t know any details on what these overlays will consist of just yet, we are hoping they will be more substantial than last year’s offerings. With a killer new fireworks show to offer, it’s probably not even a necessity that they be good, but I certainly hope I’m proven wrong. I personally would love to see a haunted Big Thunder experience playing into the story of the cursed gold and the fate of Tumbleweed.

It is worth noting that Disney has not announced these offerings yet and they are not official until announced.

So, will you return to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party in 2019 given these new additions?
