    Can you see parade and Hocus Pocus from plaza viewing

    Welcome to planDisney Leigh, thanks for stopping by with your question.

    Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is one of the most fun-filled events that Magic Kingdom Park hosts. During the spooky season, you can buy a specially ticketed event on select evenings from August 11 through November 1, 2023. These parties are fantastic and you can trick-or-treat all night, ride some of the classic attractions that are open with little to no wait, and see Mickey and all his pals too. The Sanderson Sisters are out on these nights so be careful. They usually take the stage in front of Cinderella Castle and perform a ritual called the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular. If you decide to book Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular Dessert Party with Plaza Garden Viewing you will have access to check-in 1.5 hours before the fireworks begin at the Tomorrowland Terrace Restaurant. The Hocus Pocus Villian Spelltacular and parade will happen at different times of the night when you will not have access to the special viewing areas you would for those special fireworks featuring Mickey and friends along with those classic villains. 

    Make sure to get a Mickey bag for trick or treating. There will be a path and specific locations where you can pick up the treats. You also must get a schedule to check for showtime including where to lineup for Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade. This parade has some legendary characters in it like the headless horseman and all the characters dressed in their favorite Halloween costumes. I hope you are ready for this visit it will be here before you know it. 

    Stop by again anytime at for other tips and advice to make your visit extra special. Happy Halloween!

    See ya real soon,
