Fans of Disney’s Hocus Pocus (1993) and Hocus Pocus 2 (2022) have reasons to celebrate this Halloween season. D23 is hosting a unique event honoring the film and its fandom – in Salem – the city where it all began!
The Black Flame Ball
The official fan club of Disney is bringing an “epic Sanderson-styled soiree” at the historic Hawthorne Hotel located in no place other than Salem, Massachusetts. The event, titled the D23 Black Flame Ball, will include a series of themed events inspired by the cult classic movie. Guests who purchase tickets will enjoy a walking tour of the city (including historic landmarks and filming locations) and admission to a colorful Halloween costume party. Fans of the Sanderson Sisters can eat, drink, and be scary as they dance the night away with live music and unique entertainment.
So climb on a broom, mop, or vacuum cleaner and fly over to the most spellbinding event of the Halloween season! Guests are encouraged to dress up as their favorite characters from the movie, such as Winifred Sanderson, Billy Butcherson, Max Dennison, Thackery Binx, or others, and boogie the night away.
And it’s always a good idea, if you plan on attending, to re-watch Hocus Pocus (1993) and the sequel Hocus Pocus 2 (2022) starring Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy.
The exclusive event is available to D23 members, and the tickets are priced as follows:
Gold Member: $229 per ticket.
General Member: $279 per ticket.
Witches interested in attending the event will also receive a commemorative gift. Guests under 18 must be accompanied by another guest who is 18 or older. For more information on the event, details can be found here!
