Mickey’s Boo to You Parade is a spook-tacular parade that takes place during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, an annual special-ticketed event held at Magic Kingdom Park in Walt Disney World Resort, Florida. The parade is a highlight of the Halloween party and offers a delightful and thrilling experience for guests of all ages.

The Boo to You Parade is a seasonal offering, typically running during the fall season, especially on select nights leading up to Halloween. It’s known for its unique blend of Halloween-themed floats, costumed characters, and catchy music that creates a festive and family-friendly atmosphere.

The parade begins with a special pre-parade called the “Headless Horseman Rides Again,” featuring the iconic Headless Horseman from “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” tale. As the Horseman makes his chilling ride down Main Street, U.S.A., he sets the eerie and exciting tone for the parade that follows.

The Boo to You Parade features a variety of floats and sections, each celebrating a different aspect of Halloween. From classic Disney characters dressed up in Halloween costumes to spooky ghosts, ghouls, and villains, the parade offers a mix of fun and frights that entertain guests of all ages.

One of the most beloved sections of the parade is the “Haunted Mansion” unit, where guests can spot their favorite grim grinning ghosts and dancing grave diggers from the iconic attraction. Other sections may include characters from “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” the Disney villains, and even a Halloween harvest celebration with the beloved Disney characters.

The parade is accompanied by an infectious and catchy musical soundtrack, including the iconic “Boo to You” song, which guests are sure to be humming long after the parade ends.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us. My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back to my first trip to Walt Disney World in the mid-80's. I have since returned to the magical place more than 20 times. I started this site when I came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching Disney content with my 8-year old, so it made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
