The scarecrows are gathered in the planters at the center of Town Square, with pumpkins on the ground around them. Each is in a unique outfit and some represent different aspects of Main Street, U.S.A. This stylish scarecrow is in a purple dress with a matching parasol.

This marching band scarecrow got a little overzealous with his drum.

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party entertainment includes Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade. Performed twice nightly — weather permitting — the parade features Disney Villains, Haunted Mansion characters, Mickey & Friends, and more. This year, Minnie, Daisy, and Clarabelle will appear in the parade as the Sanderson Sisters of “Hocus Pocus.” They debuted the looks at Disneyland Resort and on Disney Cruise Line last year.

The Headless Horseman usually rides ahead of the parade. Last year, Max Goof performed as Powerline in a parade pre-show.

The actual Sanderson Sisters host the “Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular,” summoning various Disney Villains for a stage show in front of Cinderella Castle. The show is performed a few times each night.

Jack Skellington of “The Nightmare Before Christmas” 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 event also includes special food and beverage items.
