New Halloween Fireworks – Ghoulish Delights for 36 Nights

The Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World features Halloween fireworks and other ghoulish delights for 36 nights 

For 36 nights, Aug. 16-Nov. 1, 2019, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party will return for a record-breaking stretch, including a parade, special menus and an all-new Halloween fireworks show.

Let’s take a look at the goings-on:

New Halloween Fireworks: ‘Disney’s Not So Spooky Spectacular’

Our host for the Halloween Fireworks is Jack Skellington, who spins a tale about the witching season and how anything can happen during this magical time. Zero, Jack’s ghostly canine companion, takes us along on a trick-or-treating adventure with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy and Donald Duck. The four friends are drawn into a spooky haunted house, with skeletons dancing, ghosts waltzing and Disney villains galore. Texture mapping projection effects, lasers and fireworks make up the bulk of the storytelling.

Beware! The Headless Horseman is on the prowl, looking for Ichabod Crane or anyone else so that he can get a-head. (Sorry). Close behind are the safe and spooky Disney characters in their adorable Halloween costumes.

Edna Mode and her favorite customers, The Incredibles, show up for the festivities – and they’re already wearing masks! Wreck-It-Ralph, Vanellope von Schweetz and the girls from Sugar Rush will sweeten things up with their candy-themed floats and vehicles. Plus, you’ll see Pirates of the Caribbean, playful spooks from The Haunted Mansion and a Frontierland hoedown hosted by Clarabelle Cow. Maybe this year, her boyfriend Panchito Pistoles will make an appearance!
