New Tomorrowland Unit and Haunted Mansion “Spectral Bride” Enhancement Announced For “Mickey’s Boo to You Halloween Parade” at Magic Kingdom
Disney has just announced some new (returning?) floats and enhancements for this year’s Mickey’s Boo To You Halloween parade, presented nightly as part of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween party.
Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is already a must-do experience every fall at Magic Kingdom Park, and it’s even more so this year with the debut of the incredible new “Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular,” a new interactive treat trail at Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor and attractions updated with new Halloween twists.
Presented twice nightly during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, the parade brings forth a cavalcade of fiendishly fun floats as each land of the Magic Kingdom comes together to celebrate Halloween.
The parade opens with a flurry of favorite Disney friends, including Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse in all-new Halloween costumes, as they trick-or-treat down Main Street, U.S.A. Representing Liberty Square, the Haunted Mansion unit features Hitchhiking Ghosts and a new addition, the spectral Bride, who glides among the waltzing spirits.
A new Tomorrowland unit brings The Incredibles and designer extraordinaire Edna Mode to “Mickey’s Boo to You Halloween Parade,” followed by Buzz Lightyear and Alien explorers discovering crystalline treasures on the surface of a planetary playset float.
It’s worth noting that if some of the parade vehicles look familiar or you’re getting a sense of deja vu, it’s because they’re reusing or recycling these from other parades and expos. The Incredibles’ parade vehicles are from last summer’s Incredible Tomorrowland Expo. Same goes for Buzz’s float. It’s actually Jack Sparrow’s old float, just with “intergalactic” crystals on it. The smaller alien saucer vehicle is actually from Pixar Play Parade, as are the Space Ranger dancers.
Wreck-It Ralph, Vanellope von Schweetz and the girls from Sugar Rush will also be reprising their role in the parade. Pirates sail in from Adventureland, Clarabelle Cow hosts a square dance during a Frontierland hoedown, and a wicked assortment of Disney Villains reigns over a Fantasyland-inspired grand finale.
Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party kicks off August 16, with events held on select nights through November 1.
