Disney announced today that a new fireworks show will debut this year at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party! It will replace Happy HalloWishes at the Magic Kingdom. The Party nights take place starting earlier than ever in 2019 at Walt Disney World, kicking off on August 16th and running through November 1st. This is the first time in 14 years that there is a new fireworks show. I can’t wait to see the show, it sounds fantastic! And remember, this fireworks spectacular is ONLY at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. One other thing to note – Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens (first phase) on August 29th, 2019 – so that might factor into your travel plans. More information on the new fireworks show is below.
From the Disney Parks Blog: As you can see above in the very first scene to be released, this new show will feature state-of-the-art projection effects, lasers, lighting and dazzling fireworks that come together to tell a not-so-scary story about how anything can happen on Halloween night. The show will take guests along on a trick-or-treating adventure, where four friends – Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy – find themselves drawn into a mysterious haunted house. The journey takes them from one room of the house to another, encountering dancing skeletons, waltzing ghosts and a whole series of troublemaking Disney villains.
Returning to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party are the popular live show “Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular,” featuring the Sanderson Sisters and Disney villains the likes of Oogie Boogie, Dr. Facilier and Maleficent.
