Be sure to stay tuned to WDW News Today as more information on this refurbishment becomes available.
Walt Disney World has launched a new interactive website just to distribute details to guests on the Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Parties at the Magic Kingdom, currently taking place on select evenings until the end of October.

To get more information on the fireworks, candy, characters, and parade [...]
