Hocus Pocus Villain Spectacular
The infamous Sanderson Sisters from “Hocus Pocus” are back for the Disney Halloween party celebration. Be careful — they will put a spell on you as they conjure up the “Hocus Pocus Villain Spectacular” display on the fortress Forecourt.
Foods, trick-or-treating and merchandise
One of the massive “treats” of the Disney Halloween celebration is trick-or-treating across the park. You could get a lot of candy if that’s what you are after, however we prefer to experience the shows and hit the trick-or-treat paths as we walk around.
Tips for the spooky night
Wear a Halloween Costume
It doesn’t have to be something extraordinary, keep it fresh, keep it relevant and keep it light; you will be moving around a lot, so don’t wear something that you’ll sweat through and give yourself a hard time!
This goes for kids and adults, bring your own trick-or-treat bags there are loads of places to get some treats. Just as you enter the park, guests get treat bags; they are good and all, but they’re relatively small. If you want to haul in more loot, consider packing extra bags. If you forget, you can always purchase souvenir bags that will do the trick.
Get To The Park During The Early Hours
The park is going to be crowded, if you want to meet all your favorite characters, be the first one’s in line, get to experience all the park has to offer, you’ll have to get there early. While the party officially starts at 7 PM, you can enter the park as early as 4 PM.
Visit Your Favorite Characters First
There are a lot of rare characters which you’ll have to get to first, because if you don’t the lines are going to be massive, some of them include Jack and Sally, The seven Dwarfs, Moana, etc. See them first, so you can slowly see the rest knowing you’ve met the rarest first.
It can be a bit overwhelming, don’t stress out about the place at all!
Get your boogie on, enjoy the parade and the fireworks, mingle a little, have a great time with your friends and family!
