Hocus Pocus Villain Spectacular

    Will we be able to ride Tron during the MNSSHP in August? Will there be long lines? Could we purchase lightning lanes in the morning to make sure we can go to it? We'll be staying at Disney Riviera Resort, but not going to any park that day.

    Hi Nora! Welcome back to planDisney. I'm glad you brought your question to us today!

    Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party is such a fun and festive event at Magic Kingdom Park. In fact, it's one of my favorite events at the resort. So much so that I'm going again this year! One of my favorite parts of the event is the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular. Hocus Pocus is one of my favorite movies and this show is, well, spectacular!

    Disney Parks Blog announced that there will be a Virtual Queue for TRON Lightcycle / Run presented by Enterprise during the party. The timing of when you can try to join a Boarding Group through your My Disney Experience mobile app has not yet been announced, but stay tuned as the spooky season approaches. Since a Virtual Queue is being offered, a standby queue is unlikely to be available. Furthermore, the Disney Genie+ Service and Individual Lightning Lanes are not usually available during the party.

    Did you know that even though the party starts at 7 p.m., you are usually able to get into the park as early as 4 p.m. with your party ticket? A lot of times I like to get some attractions done before the party starts so that I can concentrate on the specialty offerings during the party. However, if you'd like to ride attractions during the party, go for it, as the lines are usually much shorter during the event than during a regular theme park day!

    Nora, I hope you have a wonderful time at the resort during the spookiest time of the year. If you want an elevated dining experience during your stay, be sure to make an advanced dining reservation for Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera at your resort. I hear the character breakfast is also outstanding!

    Be sure to reach out with any other questions you may have leading up to your trip!

    Boo to you,
