Our September issue is a Disney World Halloween party that celebrates the spookiest of details in the parks.
Let’s face it. “Boo To You” is a solid bop. If you know, you know. Now get to Magic Kingdom to boogie down, because it is playing in the streets again this year!
Don’t know what we’re talking about?
Then your mission is also to get to Magic Kingdom to discover the most solid spook song since “Thriller.” It’s a can’t-miss Halloween detail you don’t hear about often enough, along with these Halloween details in the September issue of WDW Magazine.

💀 After Hours Boo Bash
After Hours Boo Bash is the main attraction this year at Walt Disney World. With COVID changing how we scare up some fun, the party is a bit different from Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.
But how different?
We were there on opening day to see just how this party works so that you can save time and money when you’re looking for tricks and treats.
The party includes:
- Character cavalcades (Including Maleficent the fire-breathing dragon)
- Distanced character greetings
- Cadaver Dan performances
- Trick-or-treat trails
- A dance party
- Free snacks
- Special-edition food for purchase
- Super short lines for attractions
It’s a lot to fit into a mere three-hour window.
🍎 Snow White’s Horrifying Ride
Gone but can’t-possibly-be-forgotten. Because it was too scary to even exist, so now your brain has to house it until the end of time.
Do you remember Snow White’s Scary Adventures? It was so scary that they had to adjust it multiple times just to make it kid-friendly. At one point, there were actual skeletons grasping for help.
We couldn’t help them, because we were too busy trying to escape the Evil Queen.
And do you remember what very important character was missing from the first draft of the ride? Guests didn’t get it, so it had to be changed.
Is it all coming back to you? Or are you one of the lucky ones that didn’t have to brave the gnarled woods? Intrigued?
Come with our CEO, Stephanie Shuster, on a ride through your (and Snow’s) nightmares.
🕷️ Villainous Makeup Looks
‘Tis the season for all things purple, green, black, and orange.
But if you want to look truly and sickeningly evil, take it from the experts.
Our style expert, Aly Sferlazza, has been crafting some devilish looks based on your favorite (or love-to-hate) Disney Villains.
These makeup styles can get you ready for Halloween night, or just casually ready to creepy around the parks.
🎃 Don’t-Miss Halloween Details
Boo Bash and Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party are a great reason to head to Disney World for Halloween, but seasoned guests know the devil is in the details.
From those grinning Mickey Jack o’lanterns on Main Street to the whisp of icing that creates a ghost on a cupcake, it’s these spooky details that make Halloween feel like home.
But did you know about one little-known Halloween tradition at Fort Wilderness Campground? Guests put a lot of effort into creating their own parades throughout the month of October. And can you guess what they’re driving?
We are bringing all the details to life in our cozy and campy spotlight on the campground.
👻 Haunted Mansion with Bob Gurr and Rolly Crump
Inside each issue of WDW Magazine, you’ll find Imagineering stories as told by Imagineers and their family members.
Matthew Krul takes us through a creepy manor tour in our September issue to talk about some of the details in the Haunted Mansion.
Krul spoke with Rolly Crump and Bob Gurr to dig up facts on the old haunt.
We can’t reveal all, but while planning Haunted Mansion Rolly Crump walked into his office one morning and Walt Disney was sitting in his chair…
How’s that for a teaser? We give up the whole story, as told by Crump and Gurr.
