It was announced a few months ago that the fireworks spectacular for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party would be getting a revamp, however today, a few more details were announced that make us very excited about this year’s event.
The new show will be called “Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular” will feature state-of-the-art projection effects, lasers, lighting and dazzling fireworks and will feature Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas. Jack will serve as the host of this all-new Magic Kingdom nighttime extravaganza and he has come to tell a not-so-scary story about how anything can happen on Halloween night. During Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular, Jack’s ghost dog, Zero will then fly off carrying everyone along on a trick-or-treating adventure.
This is where the previously announced portion of the show begins to take place, where Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy find themselves drawn into a mysterious haunted house. Their journey takes them from one room of the house to another, encountering dancing skeletons, waltzing ghosts and a whole series of Disney villains.
But that’s not all that’s new for this year’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party! New this year, when you follow the treat trail into the Monster World at Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor you will also be able to interact in all-new ways with the cast of monsters, as they learn about the Human World holiday of Halloween.
In addition, this year, live pirates will return to the Pirates of the Caribbean where they will be engaged in a whole new adventure in search of treasure. Also, Space Mountain will go completely dark again with a new hard-rockin’ soundtrack, and at the Mad Tea Party will once again offer special lighting and music to give the attraction experience an extra energy after dark.
Finally, during the “Storybook Circus Disney Junior Jam,” Nancy Clancy from the hit Disney Junior series Fancy Nancy will join other Disney Junior pals like Vampirina and Doc McStuffins.
