Trick Or Treat

Guests with food allergies don’t have to miss out on the fun! Ask a cast member for a teal trick or treat bag at an official Allergy Center, found at Town Square Theater or Heritage House. Then when you get to each treat station, you will receive a token that can be redeemed for allergy-friendly treats at the Allergy Centers.
Everyone’s favorite witches are back for the Hocus Pocus Villain Spell-tacular, which features the Sanderson sisters recruiting infamous Disney villains to help conjure the ultimate Hocus Pocus Party Potion. The sisters’ wicked goal is to cast a spell on everyone in the park before the Halloween Party ends! The show runs three times per day at 8:15 pm, 10:45 pm, and midnight. Guests can also grab a prime viewing spot to watch as the Headless Horseman leads the spooky procession during Mickey’s Boo To You Parade.
