After enjoying our first ever viewing of the Boo To You parade, we headed over to Adventureland to hit a trick-or-treat stop in the Enchanted Tiki Room. We love the park at night and Adventureland is great! Pirates of the Caribbean had a projection of the skull and crossbones on it that was really cool. So with fresh candy in hand, we make our way to the castle to catch the show.
Let me say here that we did not arrive early enough!!! We got to the castle about 7 minutes before the Hocus Pocus Villain Spectacular began and there were so many people already there. I really wish they would ask everyone to sit down here, because even though the stage is elevated with everyone standing those towards the back had trouble seeing and it is almost impossible for kids to see… Anyway rant over! The show was amazing!!! A group of dancers starts the show and then the three evil Sanderson Sisters take the stage and take control. They need to make a potion and need assistance from the other side… Dr. Facilier of course comes to help and brings his friends Oogie Boogie, Maleficent, Evil Queen, Cruella and Lady Tremain to add the ingredients to the potion. What we could see of the show was wonderful and towards the end we just sat back and listened and watched the light show on the castle itself which was beautiful… and we were able to catch the ending fireworks on camera since we were looking up!
After the show we headed over to Tomorrowland for some more trick-or-treating inside of Stitch’s Great Escape and a ride on the People Mover. Everyone was so tired at this point, a relaxing ride was exactly what we needed. Then we decided to make our way to Main Street to grab a spot for Hallowishes. The decorations on Main Street are our favorite! While waiting we were discussing what everyone liked best about the party and we all agreed, for the most part, that the decorations around the park and the ambiance of Halloween were the best! Unfortunately, a thunderstorm rolled in and the fireworks were delayed… and delayed… and delayed until we gave up and decided to call it a night. We didn’t get to see fireworks, but we saw one heck of a lightning show on our way out of the park!
Overall, we will call this a very successful first visit to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party and we can’t wait to do it again! Be sure to come back next time as we rope drop Epcot and ride Test Track to wake us up!
