Taking in the Halloween Celebrations at Walt Disney World on this Virtual Disney Trip

Since this is October, the month of Halloween, I thought it would be a fun distraction from the normal Virtual Disney Trips to take time and see what is going on to celebrate Halloween at the Disney theme parks. We’ll start of this two part Virtual Disney Theme Park trip by visiting Walt Disney World. So, let’s take a look…

Since we’ve been at the Magic Kingdom lately on our Virtual Tours, let’s start with Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. The above video gives you some of the highlights from opening day 2014.

Love shopping? Well here is a video that gives you all the details of the 2014 Walt Disney World Halloween Merchandise with prices. I realize this might have been a better video to watch BEFORE the Halloweentime started.

Here is some footage from the Club Villain (AKA The Diamond Horseshoe). This looks like a similar offering to the Incredibles dance party in Tomorrowland that I showed last week. I’m sure it’s fun to dance around with your favorite Disney Villains.

Looks like the Villains have taken over Cinderella’s Castle! So, instead of princesses, you get to dine with the Villians in the Villains’ Sinister Soiree.

Mickey’s Boo to You Parade is one of the highlights for the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom. It’s the only time of the year where you will see the Headless Horseman at any theme park. He leads off this parade. I also think the music used is kind of catchy.

The Villains Mix and Mingle show is really cool! I love how they use the projections on Cinderella’s Castle to add the backdrop to what is happening on stage. I will warn you, though, that it is strange at times to see your favorite characters out of their normal roles. The music is good, though. It’s just weird to see some of the Villains dancing around.

Like they have on regular days, Celebrate the Magic Halloween Edition leads into the fireworks show. Unlike some of the offerings, this show is pretty much like it usually is with a Halloween type ending tag.

We’ll finish off our time at the Magic Kingdom with Hallowishes…the Halloween version of Wishes. I think this firework show will get you in the mood for Halloween if nothing else in this post does.

Over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, they have some special Halloween treats as well. Oogie Boogie’s Freaky Funhouse Show is an interesting kind of show. The best way to describe it is a circus and/or variety kind of show. There is Only Ooogie Boogie for Disney related characters in this show. So, it’s not really a Disney kind of show.

I’m including this video as a brief overview of everything that happened at the Villians Unleashed event at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Since it’s hard to  find a good video to cover the non-shows, this video will give you an idea of what went down.

Next up, let’s check out the Villains Unleashed opening ceremony at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. If you ever wanted a pretty thorough list of Disney Villians, this show will give it to you. The show is hosted by Hades and they bring out 50 Disney Villians.

Let’s close this virtual trip up with some fireworks at Disney’s Hollywood Studios that closed out the Villians Unleashed show. There’s no better way to end a day at the theme parks than with fireworks. This fireworks show is pretty cool. I hope you enjoy it as well. Check back next Friday, and the Virtual Disney trips will wish you Happy Halloween from Disneyland!

  1. Man we love Halloween at Disney. We have done the MNSSHP at least 3 times that I can recall. We have dressed up every time. The first year our entire family went as the Flintstones and the following year we went as the Ghostbusters! We have a blast! The only place you can still trick or treat as adults! The MNSSHP is off the chart excitement. It is so much fun, and worth the special price to get in. The Boo To You Parade cannot be missed. However, get there early, not just for a seat, but for the headless horseman that runs the route before the parade starts. There is no announcement, you just hear the horse hooves hitting the pavement. It is cool and creepy at the same time.

  2. i love this! I heading down to DL tomorrow for one last visit at Halloween after LA Rock n Roll. I opted out of the DL party the last few years-the price tag just doesnt have enough events to justify the cost(the parade at DL is not a real parade,love the fireworks show but it’s so crowded).

    and I think im going to a work conference next in Tampa so I will definitely plan on going to WDW and doing the MNSSHP-I did it in 2008 and loved it!
