Halloween Cavalcade Themes & Characters Revealed for Disney’s Boo Bash

It’s the most spooktacular time of the year! Disney After Hours Boo Bash is ready to debut tonight (August 10) at Magic Kingdom park. This first-ever special ticketed event is replacing Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, so we have high hopes it’s just as spectacular – if not better! Not only is Disney After Hours Boo Bash debuting tonight, but Halloween has officially arrived at Walt Disney World with frightfully fantastic experiences. It’s a great time to be at Disney! And now, Disney has revealed the Halloween cavalcade themes and characters you can expect to find at Disney After Hours Boo Bash.

As shared via Walt Disney World’s website, “Be Bewitched by Halloween Cavalcades: Get swept up in the Halloween spirit with captivating, themed cavalcades.” Cavalcades include:

  • Mickey’s Happy Halloween Cavalcade: Delight as Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Pluto and pals—dressed in hauntingly boo-tiful Halloween costumes—parade through the park in this musical procession. (Watch last year’s Mickey float here)
  • Disney Villain Halloween Cavalcade: Behold a legion of villains unleashed to revel in this sinister season. Look out for fiends like Dr. Facilier, the Queen of Hearts and Jafar as they celebrate just how wonderful it is to be wicked. (Watch last year’s Villain float here)
  • Jack’s Nightmare Cavalcade: Prepare for a procession worthy of the Pumpkin King! Jack Skellington—along with Sally and Oogie Boogie from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas—take to the streets to share thrilling, chilling tricks and treats! (Watch last year’s Jack Skellington float go by here!)
  • And last (but definitely not least!), Maleficent will also make an appearance in the form of a fire-breathing dragon!

If you’re on the lookout for which Disney characters may be making a special appearance, Disney has announced, “Enjoy Character Sightings and catch a performance by the Cadaver Dans. Character Sightings will occur across the park, so be on the lookout! You could see:”

  • Goofy
  • Chip ‘n’ Dale
  • Miss Carlotta, Miss Renatta and Broome the Butler at the Haunted Mansion
  • Foulfellow and Gideon
  • And be sure to catch the Cadaver Dans as they make a special comeback (from the dead) appearance. These spooky songsters emerge from their tombs for a cappella performances. You won’t want to miss this—it’s to die for!

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
