Guests will also see performances by the Cadaver Dans and treat stops with plenty of candy.

The all-new Halloween event will be taking place during the resort‘s 50th anniversary celebration. Disney said decorations on Main Street, U.S.A., will receive a magical transformation. Walt Disney Imagineering and the Walt Disney World Resort Holiday Services team, will blend a fall look with the enchanting story of Cinderella by creating special pumpkin coach decorations.

Walt Disney World’s former Halloween event was called “Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.”

The popular Halloween event was canceled last year due to the pandemic, along with several other popular holiday festivities.

“Disney After Hours BOO BASH” tickets will grant admission to Magic Kingdom Park as early as 7 p.m. without the need of a day park ticket or Disney Park Pass theme park reservation, giving a guest time to enjoy even more of their favorite attractions.

Guests of all ages can dress in costume for the occasion and grab candy at stops around the theme park. Disney said costume masks are not permitted for adults, but they can only be worn by children younger than 14.

Walt Disney World plans to share more information about “Disney After Hours BOO BASH” as it becomes available.
