It may still be August, but Halloween is in full swing at Walt Disney World! With all the frightful fun surrounding Disney After Hours Boo Bash, we can’t help but shift our focus to all the Halloween-themed food Disney is offering at this most ‘spooktacular’ time of the year. While we’re thrilled to see the return of a Halloween-themed party here at Disney World, there are a few things missing. There are no nighttime spectaculars, fireworks, full parades, or stage shows associated with Disney After Hours Boo Bash like there was with Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Without those extra doses of magic, we are no longer seeing the need for the extra add-ons that used to be available for the special ticketed event, such as the former dining package called “Cruella’s Halloween Hide-A-Way Party” at Tony’s Town Square Restaurant, or the former “Disney’s Not So Spooky Spectacular Dessert Party” at Tomorrowland Terrace.
While Walt Disney World’s After Hours Boo Bash does offer character cavalcades that creep through the parade route throughout Boo Bash at Magic Kingdom, Disneyland’s version of a Halloween party, “Oogie Boogie Bash” does offer a “Frightfully Fun Parade” this year. It’s an actual parade – not just a sole cavalcade here and there. This means unlike the lack of need for a viewing area to catch one of the small Boo Bash cavalcades, it is helpful to have a special viewing area for Oogie Boogie Bash’s Frightfully Fun Parade if you’re willing to purchase the add-on.
First up, here are the details about the Wine Country Trattoria Oogie Boogie Bash Parade Dining. As shared by Disney: “With Wine Country Trattoria Oogie Boogie Bash Parade Dining, dine on a delicious three-course meal (starter, entrée, and dessert) at Wine Country Trattoria prior to the parade and then head over to a reserved standing viewing area to witness the magic and mayhem of the Frightfully Fun Parade during Oogie Boogie Bash party nights. Wine Country Trattoria Oogie Boogie Bash Parade Dining is available for lunch and dinner on party dates during the mix-in party time.
And if you’re looking for the perfect way to fill up on treats, check out the Sonoma Terrace Oogie Boogie Bash Dessert Party. Disney shares, “Sweeten your night at the Sonoma Terrace Oogie Boogie Bash Dessert Party with some terrifyingly terrific Halloween treats along with reserved viewing for Frightfully Fun Parade. With this package, feast on an impressive selection of hauntingly scrumptious desserts and beverages.” The cost per Guest is $84.
We’re not going to lie. We miss parades dearly at Walt Disney World and are ready for them to make their return! We are also eager to see Dessert Parties and any form of Dining Packages return on the east coast. We’ll keep our fingers crossed that maybe by the time the Christmas holidays roll around we’ll be seeing more options available at Disney World. In the meantime, we’ll have to head to Disneyland to enjoy the parade and specialty dining package, and dessert party!
