Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular opening night show

The 2015 Halloween season kicked off last night at the Magic Kingdom with Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, headlined by the all new “Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular.”

The 22 minute castle show sees 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.



“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 the highlight of Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

There are four opportunities during each party night to see the show, with showtimes at 8pm, 9:20pm, 10:40pm, 12am.

We've got a video from the opening night performance of Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular - check it out below.

Sorry, I keep popping in here with different videos of Hallowishes but I noticed something else while watching a video. There seem to be lights in the Main Street windows that are synched to the soundtrack that I've never noticed before. You can see them in this video (you can see it best if you watch the emporium): I really dont remember ever seeing those. Are they new?

Went on 10/23 - what a spectacular event! Jack & Sally came out @ 5pm! We hit them up first, even though the line was small, still took 1hr. They do a great job interacting. Also got in the Seven dwarf's, the witch from snow white, and a few others. The parade was excellent! Will go again!

I would guess a supply issue if history is anything to go by. I seem to remember @marni1971 mentioning it happened last year, to the point where they had to start getting a bit creative to fill the shows. That second video is particularly strange, as I've never seen an all willow finale for a fireworks show, Disney or non-Disney!

Most likely Supply. If not, then testing new shells?

ChristianGOct 24, 2015

I was watching recent Hallowishes videos and noticed that the finale looked a bit different. They seem to be using different shells for the very last part. Look at wdwmagic's video from September (skip to 10:00): A more recent video shows them using different shells (11:10): Also (I truly feel like a detective right now), I found another video of the show from a different date where they seem to be using different shells again (12:50) : Does anyone know why? Is it just a supply issue? I mean, probably, but I'm just curious.

Surprised they're still around considering they're worse than the dining notification (not scalping) sites ever were.

Strongly recommend not buying these tickets from third parties. Disney can and will revoke them if resold.

EUmickeyOct 22, 2015

Stubhub still offers tickets for some days with 31'st being cheap but this week with prices up to 400. But be quick if you don't have any tickets cause they seem to go really fast there now aswell now that face value's are sold out.

According to the Disney website, tonight is now sold out. Anyone wanting to go this year who doesn't have tickets are out of luck. Maybe next year! Luckily I bought mine this morning! :)

Final call - tonight is the only date left with tickets remaining for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party
