Food Allergy Info:

Guests with food allergies can get a special teal bag that will designate them as having an allergy (teal is the color that represents food allergy awareness).  These bags can be picked up at Market Street, City Hall, Heritage House, Town Square Theater, or any of the trick or treat locations.  At the trick or treat stations, these guests will get a teal token, which can be redeemed for allergy-friendly treats and non-food items at Heritage House and Town Square Theater.  These are also the places to stop with any questions about the process.

City Hall will not be passing out allergy-friendly candy this year as they have done in the past.

Come see your favorite characters dressed up in their Halloween costumes! The floats feature Disney Villains as well as your beloved Disney friends. The parade begins with an entrance from the Headless Horseman!  The Haunted Mansion float is incredible. Vanellope von Schweetz from Wreck It Ralph will bring in the candy at the end of the parade with her squad of dancers.  This parade is a must see!

Before the parade begins, The Creepa Crew will make its way down Main Street to entertain guests while waiting for the parade to get there from Frontierland. This year the Crew will be led by Nick Wilde and Judy Hopps from Zootopia.

8:30 pm and 11:15 pm (begins in Frontierland). 8:15pm and 11:15pm in October.

Tip: The second parade is often much less crowded.

Mickey's Boo-to-You Halloween Parade
