Every non-local Disney World frequenter knows MCO, the Orlando International Airport, very well. Landing in Terminal A, B, or C is the unofficial start to your magical vacation because the Orlando airport loves to get in on the fun of the area’s most visited attractions. Terminal C’s Universal Studios gift shop will take every passenger into another world, and travelers at each flight gate are already clad in Mickey Mouse ears!

Even though the MCO airport provides integral bookends to many central Florida vacations, we were surprised to learn it has some STRONG opinions about what goes on at its most famous theme parks. Officials representing the airport had this response to Walt Disney World Resort’s post celebrating the start of its annual Halloween party season:

Walt Disney World’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party kicked off the Halloween season today, even though August may be a bit too early for most. One staple of the nighttime ticketed event is the fan-favorite Mickey’s Boo To You Parade, which features the lyrics shared on Disney Parks’ official X (formerly Twitter) page today in celebration.

Without missing a beat, Orlando International replied with the next set of lyrics and a GIF from Walt Disney Animation’s 1929 short The Skeleton Dance. Wow, so cute! Even the Orlando airport is a fan of Magic Kingdom’s Halloween Parade – those are some pretty niche Disney lyrics to know!

It didn’t stop there, though! Orlando International Airport also shared another random clip that is pretty hilarious. Check out this clip from Warner Bros.’s recent smash theatrical hit Barbie, and peep MCO’s caption stating, “That Boo-to-You music just hits different.”

Can you guess what musical track they dubbed over this Barbie dance scene? That’s right…they really did.

Fans really related to MCO’s Boo To You sentiments, and Disney Parks even replied back to the first tweet with more lyrics! This is the kind of wholesome Disney World story we need right now. A true Orlando experience.

Thanks, MCO airport, for always doing you.

About Lana Porter

Lana has never lost a Disney Trivia night. Maybe it’s the hundreds of times she’s been to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, her love for Disney’s ’90’s era hand-animated musicals, or the fact that she’s often likened to cartoon characters, but Disney and its magic have a special place in her heart. Her favorite Disney experiences include the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, eating Mickey Bars on the PeopleMover, and crying during the Magic Kingdom fireworks show. One day she hopes to be chosen as the rebel spy on Star Tours. When Lana isn’t Park Hopping, she’s at home reading books of all topics, watching her favs on Disney+, or snuggling her two cats, which she swears are not named after Disney characters. She loves surprising people with her knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but admits she is still catching up with Star Wars. She is happy to combine her excitement for writing with her love for Disney-style storytelling and share what she can with the world!
