Last month I talked about how I would add Halloween fun to other parts of the Walt Disney World Resort that currently don’t celebrate the season. This month I figured I would take it back to the Magic Kingdom and tell you how I would plus Mickey’s Not so Scary Halloween Party if I were in charge.
This coming holiday season Disney Springs will play host to a Christmas tree walk. All sorts of Disney themed trees will be placed along a path for the viewing pleasure of guests. My idea: why not bring a jack o’ lantern walk complete with trick or treating to Tom Sawyer’s Island. I personally would love to experience this part of the park at night. Logistically, they might have to close the island earlier then it usually closes, but for 2 months it would be so worth it.
Next I would relocate Jack and Sallie’s meet and greet to Storybook Circus where Jack meets during the Christmas party. This will put these characters far away from the parade route. That leaves room for a Nightmare Before Christmas themed float in Mickey’s Boo to You Halloween Parade. Having these characters in the parade is a no brainer. I can’t understand why this has yet to happen.
On the main stage, I would light the black candle and conjur the Sanderson Sisters for a meet and greet. Since this would sure prove to be popular, I would distribute wrist bands for this interaction color coded to help with traffic. I would put the band distribution far back in the park on the walkway between the Tomorrow Land Speedway and Storybook Circus. The sisters then would meet between shows. Each show would be a different color wrist band. It might overwork the sisters, but they have been at rest for 23 years.
Finally, in the Diamond Horseshoe I would have a haunted mansion ball room dancing show. How Epic would that be?
