Boo-To-You Parade with the Headless Horseman

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

The Party

Have you ever been to Disney in the Fall? They sure know how to party at Disney. Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is Mickey’s annual Halloween spook-tacular and promises to be a fun evening. You can dress up in your favorite costume and your evening will be filled with treats and thrills at Magic Kingdom.

The Parade

The evening parade is a must see, especially during Halloween! Right before the fun of the Mickey’s “Boo-To-You” Halloween Parade begins . . . it gets silent . . . and all of a sudden the Headless Horseman comes galloping down Main Street with a jack-o-lantern in his hand. He is an awesome sight to see and is another one of the magical extras that makes traveling to Disney World in the fall one of the best times to go!

Don’t Miss the Grand Marnier Slush at Epcot

Disney Recipe: Grand Marnier Slush from France Kiosk in Epcot

One of my favorite things at Walt Disney World is the Grand Marnier Slush from the France kiosk in Epcot. This is one tasty treat you won’t want to miss … if you are of age. Please be careful though is this is one of those drinks where the booze is hard to detect and it’s VERY delicious.

You can make this at home too. Here is the recipe for you …


  • 1 part Grey Goose Vodka
  • 1 part Grand Marnier
  • 1 part simple syrup
  • 2 parts Quickway sweet and sour mix
  • Ice


1.) Mix all ingredients in a blender until completely smooth. You can be a little more lenient with some of the alcohol to get it to your liking.

2.) To get the orange coloring such as seen at Epcot, simply add orange food coloring to the blend.

Now indulge!

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror—Be Afraid … Be Very Afraid!

My favorite Disney ride is at Hollywood Studios – The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.

It’s a great attraction to ride either day or night and is based on a haunted hotel in old Hollywood. We love the queue up to the actual ride. In true Disney fashion the excitement builds as you get closer and closer to the elevator. My kids love it and look forward to the ride photo every year – they even know where to sit now (and will wait for that seat) so they can pose for the best shot. I do recommend warning everyone it is a thrill ride and it’s going to be a bit scary and dark – you must be 40″ tall to go on the attraction. They do offer a FastPass+ which I highly recommend.

Will you make it back or will you stay forever at the Hollywood Tower Hotel . . .
