ORLANDO, Fla. – Halloween is just a week away—at least at Disney World.
- Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party starts Aug. 16
- After-hours event to feature new fireworks show
- Jack Skellington to tell tale about Halloween night
Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party returns to the Magic Kingdom on August 16. And with it, a brand new fireworks show called Disney's Not So Spooky Spectacular.
In this new show, Jack Skellington from Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas plays host, sharing with visitors a tale about the unexpected things that can happen on Halloween night.
The story revolves around Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy, who venture through a haunted house that has plenty of tricks and treats in store.
On Friday, Disney shared video of the show undergoing testing, giving many a very first look.
"This show is different from other spectaculars you may have seen mainly in that the storytelling of the show is so unique," said James Silson, Disney Parks Live Entertainment show director, in a video. "We're telling what feels like an episode of a Mickey short on the castle, but done in such a spectacular way."
The show will include projections, lasers, lighting effects, and of course, fireworks.
Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is an after-hours, separate ticketed event. In addition to the new fireworks show, visitors can enjoy the Boo-to-You Halloween Parade, the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular show and trick-or-treating around the Magic Kingdom.
