There’s never been a better time to be a foolish mortal. In case you missed it, Disney Parks made some spooktacular announcements today about their 2022 Disney Halloween events. 

We got a shriek peek at all the ways we can ring in Halfway to Halloween at the parks, on cruises, and at home. We also got some not-so-scary news about a beloved Parks party that hasn’t been celebrated since 2020. 

Disney Halloween Events on TikTok

🎃 Disney Parks Blog will go LIVE on TikTok at 10:00 PM tonight (Eastern time).

You’ll be swept away to multiple Disney Parks for some bootiful surprises to get your bones chilled just in time for October 31. This will include some Hocus Pocus fun, so grab your pointiest hat and don’t miss it!

Hold onto your Mickey Mouse Jack-o’-Lantern Ears. This is the BIG story coming out of the 2022 Disney Halloween events round-up.

NEW🎃 MNSSHP 2022 dates will be on 37 select nights from August 12 to October 31. Hours will run from 7:00 PM to midnight.

As a real treat for all guests at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, a Halloween-themed 50thAnniversary celebration commemorative print will be handed out!

Every Disney Parks fan remembers where they were they found out that Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party had been canceled in 2020. It was news that was, indeed, scary. And sure. We had the After Hours BOO BASH last year, but we couldn’t help but wonder if our favorite must-scream event would ever come back. Well, fear no more. Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party returns to Magic Kingdom this fall!

As a tie-in to the upcoming Disney+ release of Hocus Pocus 2, the Sanderson Sisters will be on hand to make some mischief. Could they be performing in a revival of the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular?

This is pretty huge news so, naturally, we have some questions. 

🎃NEW🎃 Trick-or-Treating will be back! Haunted Mansion graveyard gravediggers, special photo-ops, and exclusive entertainment are coming to Magic Kingdom!

Will Mickey’s Boo-to-You Halloween Parade be back too?  We may not have all the details yet, but rest assured, this party is going to be a frightfully good time. 

“Dark Variant” Characters at Avengers Campus

If you watched Marvel’s What If…? on Disney+, then you know things got pretty bad in the universe where Doctor Strange lost his heart instead of his hands. 

Now, it looks like the multiverse is causing more than a little madness at Disney California Adventure too. Starting in May, “Dark Variants” of our favorite Marvel characters will descend upon Avengers Campus. 

💥NEW💥 Scarlet Witch and America Chavez from the new film “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” will make limited-time appearances in Avenger’s Campus!

As long as the Avengers zombies don’t show up, we should be safe … right?

If you took Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, BOO BASH, and a Disney Cruise and Frankenstein-ed them together, you would get Halloween on the High Seas.

If you know, you know.

So what’s in store this year? Get ready to see Daisy Duck, Minnie Mouse, and Clarabelle Cow debut their new Sanderson Sisters costumes. (Daisy’s totally a Sarah, right?) 

🎃NEW🎃 An all-new Pumpkin Tree will debut in the Cinderella-inspired Grand Hall of the Disney Wish.

Meanwhile, aboard the Disney Wish, a Pumpkin Tree will be on display in the Grand Hall.

To celebrate Halfway to Halloween, Disney Parks is making us rethink our definition of ghoulish snacks. (Not that we’ll ever say no to candy.) 

From Blue Ribbon’s Cheddar Pickle Dog (A Frankenstein frank? A Frankenweenie?) to the Sister’s Elixir Hot Cocoa Bomb, there are more than a few options to scare up an appetite.

🎃NEW🎃 Check out our Halloween snacks preview for every ghoulish bite.

Oh, and did we mention that there are two collectible popcorn buckets up for grabs?
