Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party: Boo To You Parade Tips

One of our favorite parts of attending this party every year is seeing the Boo to You Parade, catch our photo tour here. Absolutely our favorite Disney parade, we wanted to share our best tips for navigating the parade. And be sure to memorize the Boo to You parade lyrics at the bottom of the post. It’s much more fun when you can sing along!

Halloween at Walt Disney World

Halloween at Walt Disney World is one of our favorite times of year. We love it so much we’ve made this an annual tradition to visit the most magical place on earth. The combination of the Halloween Party, Food and Wine Festival, Free Dining and sometimes more milder weather is our idea of a fun, relaxing vacation away from it all. Check out all our posts on Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party to get a good handle on everything you need to know. 

Boo to You Parade at Walt Disney World Tips

Ok, so if you’ve footed the bill for the Halloween party, get ready for the main attraction. The parade. Here a couple things to know!

You can only see the Boo to You Parade at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.

Boo to You Parade Crowds

▢The first parade is always the most crowded. We suggest taking this time to tackle rides which will have lower wait times and catch the later parade instead.

Boo to You Parade Best Viewing Locations

▢The best spots to watch the parade are either in Frontierland on the porch of the Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe, or on Main Street.

Anywhere on Main Street is great for a parade, but if you’re a photographer aim for the green space right in front of the Railway station. Here’s a map of the parade route you can download for a first look. We like these choices because the first one is usually less crowded than the front of the park, and you’re close to a snack shop with popcorn, goodies, and caramel apples for the parade. The second one on Main Street is great, but you will have to save your seat well ahead of time, about an hour. The green is somewhere people don’t know you can go, so its a little less busy and is the best spot to take pics because you get a nice frame of Main Street and Cinderella’s Castle. You pick… snacks or amazing photos…your choice!

Boo To You Parade Characters

▢ The Headless Horseman, from the Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad, opens the parade, on days when the horse behaves that is. It really is the coolest thing to see, but sorta scary for little ones… so keep that in mind.

▢In addition to your favorite Disney characters dressed up you see at other parades you also get a few really special performances in the lineup. The Grave Diggers, The Haunted Mansion Dancers, and the Villains float are the headliners here. 2019 will see New Characters at the Boo To You Parade, read up on that here. 

Boo to You Parade Song Lyrics

▢Boo to You Parade Song Lyrics and video are below the pin. This song is pretty easy to learn since it repeats and you will have it stuck in your head forever. If you have kids ( or even if you don’t), learn it ahead of time. This is what Disney people do!:)

Headless Horseman Boo to You Parade Opening Script

Gather round friends and hear the tale that started long ago on the Sleepy Hollow Trail. 
Where the air is still with the chill of fall, he’s the one who leads them all. 
From witches laughter to ghoulish grounds, and ghosts and monsters all around.
With a glowing pumpkin to light the way, he’s lurking to find his perfect grave.
He’s the bringer of Halloween fear, beware the Headless Horseman is here!

Boo To You Parade Song Lyrics

Oh a pirates life is a wonderful life
A’roaming over the sea
Ne’er a career as a buccaneer
It’s a pirate’s life for me

Oh a pirate’s life is a wonderful life
You find adventure and sport
But live every minute for all that’s in it
The life of a pirate is short

Yo ho
Yo ho
Yo ho, yo ho a Pirates life for me

Oh a pirate’s life is a wonderful life
But not forever they say
When your neck’s in a noose
And you can’t get it loose
For the life of a pirate you pay

VILLAINS BALL UNIT
Welcome home to the night
When you’re sure to get a fright
From us you’ll get a trick and not a treat
It may sound kind of sappy
But it makes us really happy
To scare you
So boo to you and you

No we’re not being mean
It’s just part of our routine
We’ll scare you and we’ll spook you just for fun
As Halloween arises
We wear up our surprises
So fun
We do to scare you

It’s good to be back
It’s good to be back
To laugh about the very scary fun that we had
Cause a chill, more to thrill
Yes you know that we will
So prepare to be scared
It’s just part of the drill
Yes it’s true
Yelling boo
Is the thing that we do
And to you
We confess
It’s the one we do best

It’s good to be back
It’s good to be back
It’s fun to be the one to make the good guys so mad
Cast a spell
Scream and yell
And it suits us so well
All the fun that we’ve had
Yes it’s good to be bad

Boo boo boo boo boo boo boo to you
