The Disney Parks social media accounts were filled with creepy and “not so scary” posts, all teasing some updates of what to expect this Halloween season.
Let’s take a look:
Disney After Hours BOO BASH’
It looks like Halloween at Walt Disney World will be a little different this holiday season. Instead of Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, Disney announced an all-new After Hours Party titled “Disney After Hours BOO BASH”.
In the past, Disney After Hours events was open to a limited number of guests and took place after normal park hours. The main draw for the After Hours events were low wait times at a limited number of the most popular attractions.
” “Disney After Hours BOO BASH” will take place on select nights, Aug. 10 – Oct. 31, from 9 p.m. to midnight*. Spooky festivities will include Halloween-themed cavalcades, character sightings throughout the park, special performances by the Cadaver Dans, décor, lighting, music, treat stops with plenty of candy and so much more!”
“Disney After Hours BOO BASH” tickets will grant admission to Magic Kingdom Park as early as 7 p.m. without the need for a day park ticket or Disney Park Pass theme park reservation, giving you time to enjoy even more of your favorites.Guests young, old and immortal can dress in costume for the occasion and get their fill of Halloween candy.”
It appears guests of Walt Disney World resort hotels will have a window for early access to purchase tickets to the Bash’. Tickets for “Disney After Hours BOO BASH” will go on sale next month.
Virtual Haunted Tours
The Disney Parks YouTube account teamed up with Uncle Deadly of the Muppets, to bring us a spooky, self-guided, and interactive tour of Disney’s Haunted Mansions. Fans can watch Uncle Deadly’s intro video and then click around their screens for some behind the scene looks of several Disney attractions.
The tours have been posted as a way to promote Disney’s new Boo Bash’ and Disney+’s new Halloween Special premiering this Fall.
