True to its name, Walt Disney World genuinely is ‘The Most Magical Place on Earth,’ and as such, the Walt Disney Company takes great pains to ensure everything runs as smoothly as possible, with little to no bumps in the road.

Of course, for the Walt Disney Company, that also includes appearances. Everything must also look pristine and perfectly manicured, with nothing out of place.

While this is a great way to transport guests into another world once they arrive, it’s got a pretty major downside: when something goes wrong, it becomes extra obvious, and as a result, extra upsetting.

Over in Magic Kingdom, Disney’s currently celebrating Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, which is exactly what it sounds like.

This Halloween party is full of limited characters and experiences, including the Hocus Pocus Villain Spectacular, hosted by the Sanderson Sisters from Hocus Pocus (1993).

Other experiences include the Cadaver Dans Barbershop Quartet, Mickey’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular, and Mickey’s Boo-To-You Parade, which begins when the Headless Horseman slowly makes his way down the path, ahead of the parade floats.

This Is Where Everything Goes Wrong…

This display is spooky, eerie, and incredibly impressive…when everything goes according to plan. Unfortunately, that was not the case recently as guests were subjected to a frightening scene:

In this video, we can see that the horse slips and falls on the wet pavement, and the audience gasps and cries out in horror as a Cast Member rushes toward the performer.

Both the horse and the actor portraying the Headless Horseman stand up, leading us to believe that nobody was injured. Despite a lack of injury, this is an incredibly unsettling scene to witness while visiting Walt Disney World.

After all, what if the horse had panicked and run into the crowd? What if the performer had gotten hurt? We’re just thankful that wasn’t the case, as things could have easily been much, much worse.
