Confession: I just LOVE Halloween and Christmas at Disney.  I’m always amazed by all the special touches that are only present in the parks during the fall months.  There’s the pumpkin decorations at the parks, trick-or-treating around Magic Kingdom, and meeting characters in their Halloween costumes.  Then there’s also the larger-than-life Christmas trees, snow falling on Main Street, and of course, Santa Claus for the holidays.  Bottom line: there’s nothing quite like Halloween or Christmas at Disney World.

So when Disney announced the dates for this year’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party & Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, well, I just had to rush to share it with you, my fellow Disney fans.  Without further ado, here are the 2017 dates for Magic Kingdom’s holiday parties:

Disney has announced the return of the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular stage show, which takes place in front of Cinderella Castle and stars Winnie, Mary & Sarah Sanderson from the Disney film Hocus Pocus.  Also returning is Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade and Happy HalloWishes, a special parade and fireworks show reserved only for party guests.  HalloWishes is at the top of my list when it comes to fireworks shows at Disney, so if you have not seen it before, make sure to add it to your Disney bucket list.
