Disney has announced new entertainment coming to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom this year.

Here is Disney’s announcements about the new and updated offerings:

  • Adventureland will be taken over by a spirited pirate band and their crew. Be sure to listen for their sea shanties while their shipmates roam the land sharing tales of their explorations at sea.
  • Get ready for even more chances to “Stand Out” with Max Goof and his Powerline party pack at new pop-up parties throughout Magic Kingdom before this popular crew dances onto Main Street U.S.A. ahead of Mickey’s Boo-to-You Halloween Parade.
  • The Seven Dwarfs will be returning to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Even if you are a little bashful, stop by and say hello! They’ll be happy to see you.
  • Mickey’s Boo-to-You Parade will be more villainous than ever, with favorite foes Ursula, Cruella de Vil, the Queen of Hearts, and the newly announced Sanderson Sisters Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck, and Clarabelle joining the frightful finale.

Last year, Max Goof appeared as Powerline just part of a pre-show for the parade, but it sounds like he’ll now show up throughout the park. Watch our video of the Powerline performance below.

The Headless Horseman also usually rides ahead of the parade, weather permitting.

Entertainment also includes the “Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular” featuring the real Sanderson Sisters and some of their “frightful friends” — the Disney Villains.

Jack Skellington hosts Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular, a nighttime spectacular including fireworks and castle projections. “Happily Ever After” will not be performed on days when Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party takes place.

The Dapper Dans usually become the Cadaver Dans during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and perform in Frontierland.
