Earlier, Disney announced that Halloween activities, would indeed be returning to the Walt Disney World Resort for the 2020 fall season! Part of the announcement was the fact that there would be delicious treats, incredi-boo-le merchandise, and the ability for Guests to be able to dress up in costume, for the first time ever, during a normal visit to the Magic Kingdom! But that’s not all and today, we got a peek at some of the spooktacular Halloween entertainment offerings that Guests will be able to see!
So, while Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party won’t be happening this year, Guests will still be able to see some of their favorite Mickey’s Boo-To-You Parade characters and floats! Throughout the day, special Halloween cavalcades will pop up and head down Main Street U.S.A. Guests may see Mickey Mouse and his pals, all dressed in Halloween costumes. Or, you may even come across a cavalcade of Disney Villains, including Gaston, Maleficent, Queen of Hearts, Jafar, and even Jack Skellington!
Also, in another fantastic move, (that, by the way, I absolutely called) The Dapper Dans will be returning to the Magic Kingdom beginning September 20, however they will be performing as The Cadaver Dans. We caught their set last year during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and it was haunting.
Moving over to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and their Halloween entertainment offerings, it was announced that Minnie’s Halloween Dine is coming back to Hollywood & Vine, beginning on September 25. Dining here will look a bit different from the past. Instead of a buffet experience, the meal will be served table-side, as a family-style option. In addition, Guests will find Minnie Mouse, dressed as a witch, Goofy as a spooky cowboy, Mickey Mouse as a vampire, and Pluto, will be wearing a Halloween collar. You won’t be able to hug the characters like normal, but you will still be able to grab a photo….again, in a different manner than previously done before.
Halloween and fall events will take place at the Walt Disney World Resort from September 15 through October 31.
