Boo to You Parade, Halloween at Disney Hacks and Disney Shirts

Halloween at Walt Disney World is one of our favorite annual sabbaticals to the most magical place on earth. The combination of the Halloween Party, Food and Wine Festival, Free Dining and sometimes more milder weather is our idea of a fun, relaxing vacation away from it all. Since we’ve already shared quite a bit about Halloween in our other post, we wanted to take this one to highlight a few key hacks for Halloween at Disney and honor the Boo to You Parade, complete with lyrics. 

When we went to Walt Disney World the first time it was during Halloween and at that point we had no idea that we would love it so much to start this blog, open a Disney-Inspired shop on Etsy and become annual passholders.

After years of going to Walt Disney World every year at Halloween we have a few tips.

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party Tips, Tricks and Hacks

▢Mickey’s Not So Scary  Halloween Party is an additional cost- usually 80 bucks or less per person. This is definitely worth it for you and your family to experience this at least once.

▢Magic Kingdom closes at 6pm on Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party days and since these occur every other day, will cut into your Magic Kingdom evenings if you do not have a ticket. Be aware of this when your planning your trip as you could have 3-4 nights of your vacation where Magic Kingdom at night won’t even be an option because of the party.

▢The party ticket will you get into MK as early as 4pm… and since you would need to buy a MK park ticket to get in earlier, we suggest using this day as your water parks or resort day. That way you don’t end up paying double ( once to get into MK as a guest and then again as a party guest).

▢If you do enter Magic Kingdom early in the day as a regular guest, be sure to stop and grab your party wristband from one of the kiosks around the park. Cast members will begin guiding people out of the park at 6pm.

▢You get a special Special Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom card at every special event, so be sure to pick your up at the fire station on Main Street.

▢Character-wise Jack and Sally are must-do at this party. They are located at the Storybrook Circus Tent and we recommend hopping aboard the Mickey Railway to get there either right at the beginning of the party or catch them right before the party ends. This can be an 3 hour wait in line if you don’t time it right.

▢Be sure to catch the Celebrate the Magic and the Fireworks show as part of the event. These are often themed to Halloween. And the Hocus Pocus Villain Spectacular is a cult favorite.

▢If you’re attending the party, grab dinner early. We always try for a 4:30 time slot which opens up the evening to partying and special snacks without spending it in a restaurant.

▢Stop at Haunted Mansion to listen to Lady Carlotta share some jokes and Halloween tales.

▢Tuesday is the least busy day for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

▢Everyone, and we mean everyone, will be racing frantically around the park to the Treat stations. Your map will show you were treat stations are located. Here’s a tip…just stop at a few and do so closer to the end of the night so you don’t have to tote it around on the rides. Believe us, they give you so much candy that you will undoubtedly spend half the night collecting candy, bring it back to your hotel room and then realize you really can’t fit it in your luggage. Does anyone need this much candy- probably not. Do all the fun stuff instead.

Halloween Costumes for Walt Disney World Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

We will always recommend dressing up. Mind you, be sure to check out Disney’s Costume Guidelines… they are specific to the party and strict, but still allows guests to have fun and be safe.

If you’re not the dressing up kind there’s no reason that you cant still be in the Spirit of Halloween! If you’d like something a little less loud than a costume but still Disney-centric, check out our Halloween Designs in the Shop.

We’ve got designs for adults and kids. Got questions? Just head over to the shop and send us a conversation.

Boo to You Parade at Walt Disney World

Here a couple things to know about the parade specifically.

▢You can only see the Boo to You Parade at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.

▢The first parade is always the most crowded. We suggest taking this time to tackle rides which will have lower wait times and catch the later parade instead.

▢The best spots to watch the parade are either in Frontierland on the porch of the Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe, or on Main Street. Anywhere on Main Street is great for a parade, but if you’re a photographer aim for the greenspace right in front of the Railway station. Here’s a map of the parade route you can download for a first look. We like these choices because the first one is usually less crowded than the front of the park, and you’re close to a snack shop with popcorn, goodies, and caramel apples for the parade. The second one on Main Street is great, but you will have to save your seat well ahead of time, about an hour. The green is somewhere people don’t know you can go, so its a little less busy and is the best spot to take pics because you get a nice frame of Main Street and Cinderella’s Castle. You pick… snacks or amazing photos…your choice!

▢ The Headless Horseman, from the Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad, opens the parade, on days when the horse behaves that is. It really is the coolest thing to see, but sorta scary for little ones… so keep that in mind.

▢In addition to your favorite Disney characters dressed up you see at other parades you also get a few really special performances in the lineup. The Grave Diggers, The Haunted Mansion Dancers, and the Villains float are the headliners here.

▢Boo to You Parade Song Lyrics are below the pin. This song is pretty easy to learn since it repeats and you will have it stuck in your head forever. If you have kids ( or even if you don’t), pull up a you tube video and learn it ahead of time. This is what Disney people do!:)

You find adventure and sport
But live every minute for all that’s in it
The life of a pirate is short

Yo ho

Oh a pirate’s life is a wonderful life
But not forever they say
When your neck’s in a noose
And you can’t get it loose
For the life of a pirate you pay

Welcome home to the night
When you’re sure to get a fright
From us you’ll get a trick and not a treat
It may sound kind of sappy
But it makes us really happy
To scare you
So boo to you and you

No we’re not being mean
It’s just part of our routine
We’ll scare you and we’ll spook you just for fun
As Halloween arises
We wear up our surprises
So fun
We do to scare you

It’s good to be back
It’s good to be back
To laugh about the very scary fun that we had
Cause a chill, more to thrill
Yes you know that we will
So prepare to be scared
It’s just part of the drill
Yes it’s true
Yelling boo
Is the thing that we do
And to you
We confess
It’s the one we do best

It’s good to be back
It’s good to be back
It’s fun to be the one to make the good guys so mad
Cast a spell
Scream and yell
And it suits us so well
All the fun that we’ve had
Yes it’s good to be bad

Boo boo boo boo boo boo boo to you
