There's perhaps no better time of year at Disney World than the fall. The smell of pumpkin spice in the air, Main Street lined with pumpkins and our favorite characters dressed up on special Halloween costumes. Tickets for this year's Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party are already available for purchase and while we already know what some of the festivities will include, Disney is dropping a few surprise details on social media.
This weekend, Disney revealed a glorious detail that is sure to excite fans of the film Hocus Pocus. During the Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, fans can catch Minnie, Daisy and Clarabelle dressed as the Sanderson Sisters. You'll be able to see them in costume during Mickey's "Boo-To-You" Parade, but below is a sneak preview of what they look like.
This will be the first time these three characters are dressed as the Sanderson Sisters at Disney World. Previously, you could only find them at Disneyland's Oogie Boogie Bash, where they would also have a meet-and-greet. We don't know if there will be a similar opportunity to meet them at Disney World or if they will only be featured in the parade. In any case, it's nice to see Disney further acknowledging the hit Halloween classic film.
Hocus Pocus is having sort of a revival at Disney. Although the original 1993 film wasn't a huge commercial success, it has grown in popularity over the years. Last year, a long-awaited sequel debuted on Disney+, and Disney has since confirmed that a third film is in development. LEGO and Disney also recently revealed a new collaborative set that lets you build the Sanderson Sisters Cottage.
Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party returns to the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World starting this August and will run through November 1. And then it's time for the holidays!
