Don’t worry, they aren’t getting rid of the classic Headless Horseman portion of Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade, they are just adding some pre-parade entertainment: While the dance party-type things aren’t always my favorite, I do enjoy when they actually provide entertainment while guests are waiting for something. So, what do you think of this new Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party offering?

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Magic Kingdom guests blink back in amazement at the scene: not one, but two colorful Dumbos spinning through the sky above Storybook Circus.

Let’s start with the positive: the entire track was replaced, every square inch of the ride repainted, and many previously broken effects were repaired. The long broken geyser scene looks brand-new with every single opening blasting a tall pillar of water into the sky. On the other side, the boulder scene during the final lift hill was completely shut down. In short, non-moving rocks were placed where moving boulders once stood. Also, a lot of effects are still missing, but we assume this was in a rush to open on time. As for the interactive queue…. it’s on the way. [...]
