More details on the Halloween cavalcades coming to the Magic Kingdom

16 days ago in "Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party"

Beginning September 15 2020 at the Magic Kingdom, special Halloween cavalcades will take to the parade route and head down Main Street, U.S.A. as part of the park's Halloween celebration.

Along with Mickey and Minnie in their Halloween costumes, on select days, you may encounter a cavalcade of Disney Villains – from Gaston and Maleficent to Queen of Hearts and Jafar and the Pumpkin King himself, Jack Skellington.

Also beginning September 20, the Dapper dans will return to the Magic Kingdom as the Cadaver Dans.

But TDO put out a press release that stated everything will start 9/15.

I was there last week. It was weak. The items such as Halloween were already completed back in January for this season. You clearly do not understand how their Holiday Services works. They do reuse items year over year. And if you had the staff for one night, you could have them for two. Simple math.

You mean, like, Casey's reopening?

went to MK yesterday and despite it being drizzly and/or downpouring all day it was a good time. Saw Jack/Sally/Oogie cavalcade, Cadaver Dans cavalcade and Boo To You. Once it started raining I saw the Princess rainy day cavalcade too with the Boo To You characters up on the train station. Lines were long (for me) 30-60 minutes for most attractions and I was just wet and not having it. I'm going back on the 8th during the week to hopefully see everything else and try some halloween treats.

Your expectations aren't based in reality. Disney clearly marketed what would be available for Halloween, and it wasn't the extravagance of previous years fueled and paid for by large crowds and the party nights. You already are getting something new this year which you wouldn't have had last year: some of the Boo to You floats during the day at no party upcharge. Disney is only getting somewhere of 10-20% of their usual paying customers. Furloughed employees are still furloughed. College Program and International employees are (almost) non-existent. Contracted companies are understaffed. We're still in a pandemic. Complaining that WDW didn't go all-out on Halloween decorations is like complaining there's no fireworks: a complete disregard for extenuating circumstances. And if you don't want to pay full price for a park with less Halloween decorations or no fireworks... don't go.

Not worth it to them to put them up for only a month.

You expect that cause you're used to extravagant decorations from Disney every year. Maybe this year they will REALLY start Halloween decorations and festivities in October and not August/September and start Christmas after Thanksgiving or December and not early November.
