The new “Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular,” which replaces Happy HalloWishes, is the first update to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. This fireworks display features projections, pyro, and the host, Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas. Each evening, fireworks are only displayed once.

“Jack has here to share a not-so-scary story about what may happen on Halloween night.” Zero, Jack’s ghost dog, then takes everyone on a trick-or-treating adventure, where four pals — Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy – are lured inside a spooky haunted mansion. Their trip takes them from one floor of the mansion to the next, where they encounter dancing skeletons, waltzing spirits, including several malicious Disney villains.”

Trick-or-Treat throughout the park

Trick-or-treating will, of course, be free for all guests to enjoy. According to Disney, guests will be able to “roam the trick-or-treat trails” to collect various sweet treats. M&M’s, SKITTLES, SNICKERS.

If you have a food allergy, approach a Cast Member and request a teal-colored bag. Those trick-or-treating with teal bags will receive a teal token at the treat stations, according to Disney. These may then be redeemed for special treats at the Allergy-Friendly Centers.
