We shared earlier this year Disney’s Halloween Time plans to add the Headless Horseman to its Mickey’s Halloween Party event at Disneyland and now there’s more details about his appearance and it comes via an expanded new Frightfully Fun Parade.
Ditching the simpler cavalcade approach of years past, this new expanded offering will feature the popular Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow who sets the mood as he arrives on his ghostly black steed just ahead of the parade itself, carrying a flickering jack-o-lantern as a warning to everyone along the parade route.
New float segments for the parade range across all the expected Disney spooctacular franchises.
- “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas” is featured with Jack Skellington the Pumpkin King brings greetings from Halloweentown, as residents arrive to celebrate their favorite time of year. Expect to see Sally too along with the Mayor of Halloweentown and more.
- Haunted Mansion is represented with grim, grinning ghosts who come out to socialize when the iconic attraction comes to “afterlife,” with swirling ballroom dancers, ominous gravediggers and a certain trio of hitchhiking ghosts.
- “The Princess and the Frog” brings the sinister Dr. Facilier who calls on mystical powers, summoning his Shadow Men from the bayou to loom large over his strange and twisted Voodoo parlor
- Disney Villains appear out of the darkness, ready to stir up some trouble with a dark and dungeon-like lair, bringing with it a wicked gathering of villainy from Hades and the Evil Queen to Jafar, Cruella and more! Maleficent may well be in a scaly mood…
The “Frightfully Fun Parade” will be presented exclusively during Mickey’s Halloween Party, a separately ticketed event at Disneyland park hosted over 17 nights from September 23 to October 31, 2016. Purchase your tickets early here and save!
