The hard ticket event (requiring special admission fees) showcases nighttime Halloween fun and entertainment for families, specifically to show the fun of Halloween without being scared, and was created to counter scarier events at other local theme parks, including Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando Resort, and Howl-O-Scream at Tampa Bay's Busch Gardens. Here, guests are allowed to dress as their favorite characters from all Disney films; during most of the year, however, they are not due to safety precautions (kidnapping of children, for example).
About the Event
There are trick and treat stations located throughout the park, such as "Alice and Mad Hatter's Treat Party". A special parade, "Mickey's Boo-to-You Halloween Parade", features characters dressed in their Halloween finery and the special fireworks show Happy Hallowishes lights up the skies with the voices of the Ghost Host and various Disney villains. The villains appear at the Diamond Horseshoe which is transformed into "Club Villain". 2015 introduced the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular, featuring the Sanderson Sisters and various Disney villains.
