We’re just 10 days away from the start of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party here at Walt Disney World, and with a brand new fireworks show on the horizon, Disney completed a full test of the show in the early morning hours at Magic Kingdom. We have some photos and video for you of the testing to get you into the Not-So-Spooky spirit!
We watched the show from the top of Disney’s Contemporary Resort early this morning, which always provides the best out-of-park view of Magic Kingdom fireworks. The show is about 12 long, and features a combination of big fireworks, rooftop launches, castle launches, and castle stage fire columns. Before we jump into the photos and video, here’s the official description of the new show from Disney as well as concept art.
Jack Skellington from Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas” serves as the host of this all-new nighttime extravaganza, with state-of-the-art projection effects, lasers, lighting and dazzling fireworks filling the sky above Magic Kingdom Park. Jack has come to tell a not-so-scary story about how anything can happen on Halloween night. Jack’s ghost dog, Zero, then flies off carrying everyone along on a trick-or-treating adventure, where four friends – Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy – find themselves drawn into a mysterious haunted house. Their journey takes them from one room of the house to another, encountering dancing skeletons, waltzing ghosts and a whole series of troublemaking Disney villains. “Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular” promises to be the perfect Halloween treat!
Ok, let’s take a look at a couple of noteworthy photos as well as video of the testing of the new show.
First, here’s the full show minus maybe the first 15 seconds as I set up the camera. Worth noting is that there were no perimeter fireworks during the testing this morning. That doesn’t necessarily mean that there won’t be any perimeter fireworks like HalloWishes had though.
Here are some photos that we captured of the various Cinderella Castle projections as well as some in-park fireworks (and even stage fire bursts!).
