New Show at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Will Cast a Spell on You

In “Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular,” the mischievous Sanderson Sisters from Disney’s “Hocus Pocus” return to the mortal world for one night during the Halloween season. With only a few hours to run amuck, the three sisters decide to use their magic to throw the best, evil Halloween party this side of the graveyard!

With the help of the Disney villains, Winifred, Mary and Sarah gather together sinister shadows, nefarious nightmares and the power of their frightful friends to conjure the ultimate Hocus Pocus Party Potion and cast a spell on everyone in the Magic Kingdom Park. “Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular” features appearances by Dr. Facilier, Oogie Boogie, Maleficent and other great Disney villains, along with dancers, projections and special effects that combine to make this new show a not-to-be-missed Halloween treat.

“Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular” will be presented exclusively during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, held select nights at Magic Kingdom Park from September 15 – November 1, 2015.

Prince Charming Regal Carrousel

Prince Charming Regal Carrousel (formerly Cinderella’s Golden Carrousel) is an authentic carousel ride in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort. This 90-horse carousel plays organ-based Disney classics during the two-minute ride period. The carousel was originally built by The Philadelphia Toboggan Company, one of the most prestigious carousel companies, in 1917. In 1967, Walt Disney purchased the handmade carousel (and horses) from the Olympic Park in Irvington, New Jersey. Arrow Development, in which Disney then owned a 1/3 interest, produced new engineering drawings for the mechanism and horses. The original name of the carousel was Liberty, and the maidens can still be seen on the top of the carousel. When Disney acquired it, the company artists refurbished the 90 horses so that no two are exactly alike. There are eighteen hand- painted scenes that tell the story of Cinderella on the wooden canopy that covers this attraction.

This is so cool. I love seeing the “Old Epcot” in all it’s glory.
