‘Sleepy Hollow’ Photo Op Arrives at Magic Kingdom Ahead of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party 2023

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party 2023 is set to begin tomorrow, August 11, and head of the party’s debut, we spotted a photo op themed to “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” in Magic Kingdom.

Disney’s “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” brings Ichabod Crane to life as a lanky, comical schoolteacher. The bumbling Ichabod faces the notorious Headless Horseman in a whimsical and spooky escapade. The headless horseman famously leads Mickey’s Boo-to-You Halloween Parade, a staple of Halloween festivities at Magic Kingdom.

This photo op gives guests the chance to take a photo on a pathway with the Headless Horseman furiously throwing his flaming jack-o-lantern head toward them. Spooky trees as well as headstones are also part of the decor.
