Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party may be receiving a big upgrade at the Magic Kingdom. Recent rumors suggest that a new fireworks show will arrive for future editions of the party, replacing the old Happy HalloWishes show.
To date, several Disney insiders have stated that a new fireworks show has been in the works for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Those rumors have swirled ever since Happily Ever After introduced projections on Cinderella Castle, suggesting that the older Happy HalloWishes’ days were numbered.
Now, Disney has announced that guests can book reservations for a dessert party during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. While that seems insignificant to this rumor, their listing for the dessert party leaves out any mention of Happy HalloWishes. The term “Halloween Fireworks” is used instead.
Coincidence? It’s worth noting that previous dessert parties carried the Happy HalloWishes name in their title. The exclusion here seems to give merit to the idea a new fireworks show with a new name is coming.
Realistically, an upgrade is a bit overdue for both the Halloween fireworks spectacular and the spectacular for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. The current fireworks shows for the seasonal parties look a bit dated without the projections and laser technology that was added for Happily Ever After.
This should be considered a “when” and not “if” rumor. Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is overdue for a new fireworks show, but nothing has been officially confirmed yet by Disney.
