2017 Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Entertainment
Plenty of our favorites are coming back in 2017, happily. Mickey’s Boo-to-You Halloween Parade, Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular, and Happy HalloWishes fireworks always draw massive crowds and, except for Happy HalloWishes, there’s multiple showings. If you’re not a fan of large crowds, the second offering generally has way less viewers.
You’ll also be able to watch The Cadaver Dans (a spin on Dapper Dans). Head to Frontierland to catch their live (or should we write “dead”) show several times throughout the party.
