Boo-To-You Parade

The MNSSHP Boo-To-You parade is one of the most popular parades that Disney offers, and because it is also seasonal, everyone wants to see it.  The good news is, you have 2 options for viewing each party.  Once at 9:15 and again at 11:15.  Both are extremely busy, and viewing can be hard if you wait until the last minute.  Some people will even stake their spot out 2-hours before the parade starts.  It is a good idea to try and get settled 30-60 minutes before hand if you would like front row viewing to the parade.  This will also give you some time to relax, grab a snack, and enjoy your family as well.

Approximately 10 minutes before the parade begins there is a pre-show, a few characters come out and do a little dance, it certainly helps pass the time as the parade gets closer!

Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular Stage Show

This stage show occurs 3 times during each party, so you will have several opportunities to view it.  Enjoy Chills, thrills while villains await during a wickedly fun celebration hosted by the Sanderson Sisters from Disney’s Hocus Pocus.  Be prepared to laugh and yell as your favorite Disney Villains take the stage, this show is so much fun!  You can see this show at 8:30, 10:45, and 12:00am each party night.

Happy HalloWishes Fireworks

This firework spectacular occurs at 10:15 PM each party evening, weather permitting. For these fireworks you have a better view if you are back from the castle a little, not many projections to see, and get ready because the finale is nothing like you will ever see as the fireworks surround you!

Below is one side of the map for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party 2018, and it shows where the characters are located. The silhouette Mickey Mouse head shows exactly where each can be found. There are multiple hard to find characters at the parties, there is no way to see them all during one party (and still do some of the other activities), but we do recommend if this is important that you prioritize which characters you would like to see, and get in line for them early.  A few of these character meet and greets will have very long lines, some even longer than 60-minutes. A good tip is to arrive at the park before the party starts and get in line, this way you are towards the front of the line, and as soon as the party starts you can knock your first priority character off the list.

Main Street U.S.A.
  • Mickey Mouse – Town Square Theater
  • Tarzan, Jane, Terk – Directly across from Skipper’s Canteen
  • Moana – Queue for Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room. Moana is very topical and VERY popular.  If she is on your must do list, be sure to get in line early.  You will see people rushing to meet her as soon as gates open for the party.
  • Aladdin, Jasmine, Genie, Abu –  in Agrabah, you will find that all of these do interchange and switch, so at different times of the evening, you will see different characters
  • Jafar – Also in Agrabah
  • Captain Jack Sparrow – Across from Pirates of the Caribbean on Pirate tutorial stage, he does also appear at this spot daily during regular park hours
  • Brer Rabbit and Brer Fox – These guys are typically walking around the area, if you hang out long enough, you will find them.
  • Brer Bear – Closer to the water by where you will find the boat to Mark Twain’s Island
Liberty Square
  • Jack Skellington and Sally – Gazebo. Note, these two typically have a very long line, be prepared to wait up to 60-min to see them.
  • The Gravediggers –Liberty Square Riverboat area
  • Cruella DeVil – Seven Dwarfs Mine Train area
  • Cinderella, Princess Elana, Princess Tiana, Rapunzel – Princess Fairytale Hall. These princesses can also be seen during regular park hours.
  • Anastasia and Drizella – Behind the outer castle walls
  • Alice and Mad Hatter – Mad Tea Party area
  • Queen of Hearts, Tweedle Dee, Tweedle Dum – Mad Tea Party area, fairly close to Alice and Mad Hatter

  • Ariel and Prince Eric – Across from Ariel’s Grotto

  • Witch Minnie Mouse – Casey Jr. Splash ‘n Soak Station
  • Goofy – Barnstormer.  Goofy is in his fun flying outfit
  • Seven Dwarfs – Pete’s Silly Side Show tent.  Get in line for these guys early, as they are typically a very long wait.
