Mystical Spirits of the Blue Bayou is a premium dining and entertainment experience that features a themed 3-course dinner, spooky-kooky entertainment and a special parting gift. Tickets to this exclusive event can be purchased only by Guests who already have tickets to Mickey’s Halloween Party.

The enchantment begins under the twinkling stars and eternal twilight of the Blue Bayou Restaurant, where our chefs have conjured up a voodoo-licious prix-fixe dinner just for the occasion. Begin with your choice of appetizer: Beguiling Bayou Crab Cake with crisp creole slaw and tart Remoulade Sauce, or a warm, melted goat cheese Bon Coeur Tart coupled with fresh baby spinach, golden beets and savory prosciutto, with a drizzle of dried cherry vinaigrette.

While “live” performers capture your eyes and ears, all your other senses will be captivated by the 3 main entrees to choose from—Braised Bayou Short Ribs, with Danish blue-cheese whipped potatoes and baby carrots, served with huckleberry-pinot noir sauce; Bourbon-Glazed Chicken Breast over a bed of smoked-white cheddar polenta, with crisp asparagus spears and a savory thyme jus; or Red Fish, sautéed to flaky perfection with crispy rock shrimp, seasoned Louisiana long rice, haricot vert and étouffée sauce.

Finish your feast with either a dark chocolate crème brûlée with salted caramel macaroon, or an almond praline cheesecake with petit honey beignets—plus a tempting selection of non-alcoholic beverages.

Dr. Facilier is fast and facile, but his wicked wit and mysterious ways always lead to laughter. A spoonful of “funny” makes the Medicine Man go ‘round and ‘round—the tables—to make sure your dinner is as delightful as it is delicious.

To ensure that your Halloween feast is the most memorable ever, your host has invited some “friends from the other side.” So keep an eye out—but not too far out!—for other “live” performers, including the Cadaver Dans and mischievous pirates. (We assume they’re alive.)

When the dining concludes, our ghoulish Guests (you are wearing a costume, yes?) will meet, and be given a special amenity by, Dr. Facilier and his “boogie” men and women—a beautiful, frame-worthy lithograph of original artwork by Disney Animator Eric Goldberg! Guests will then be escorted by our Ghoul Control to a reserved area in Central Plaza for priority viewing of the Halloween Screams fireworks spectacular!

The price is $150.00 per adult/child (ages 3 to 9), tax and gratuity included. Must be paid in full at time of booking. Price does not include Mickey’s Halloween Party admission.

To attend the Mystical Spirits of the Blue Bayou premium dining event, you must have already purchased a ticket to Mickey’s Halloween Party for that same day.

Space is limited and advance reservations are highly recommended. Use the “Check Availability” tool to book online.

After booking your reservation, you will be contacted by a Cast Member prior to the event date to make your main course food selections.

Guest check-in on the day of event starts at 4:00 PM at Blue Bayou Restaurant. Guest seating begins at 7:00 PM, and dinner is served at 7:30 PM. Guests will be escorted to the reserved fireworks viewing area at 9:00 PM, and Halloween Screams Fireworks will take place at 9:25 PM. The premium experience ends at 9:45 PM.

No refunds, exchanges or discounts.

Disney Parks has announced that they have lowered the price of Sphero’s BB-8 toy from $200 for $149.99. Many fans that participated in Disney Parks’ Force Friday events at Walt Disney World and the Disneyland Resort were disappointed when they were charging $50 more for the popular toy than other retailers that are charging the $149.99 price. Customers purchasing directly from Sphero were charged the lower price and even Disney Store was offering the product for the $149.99 price.

Guests who purchased BB-8 at Disney Parks for $200 are able to receive a refund if they provide a reciept. Ask a Cast Member at World of Disney (Disneyland Resort) or Once Upon a Toy (Walt Disney World) for more information.

In an in-depth interview with The Guardian, Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) discussed Disney’s desire to keep details of future Star Wars stories under wraps:

“The secrecy has been beyond ludicrous,” he sighs. “For heaven’s sake, it’s a movie. When I got the script, it was typed in black on paper of the deepest red so you couldn’t photocopy it. I got a hangover just reading it.”

He went on to discuss being chided for revealing an actor’s involvement in the film on Twitter:

“I said that I’d met so-and-so. An actor who plays a … thing in the film. A character. Immediately I received a message from Disney: ‘Remove the tweet! You’re not allowed to say that!’ Honestly. It’s a kind of Kremlin attitude. Look, I know perfectly well not to tell you now what I’m giving you for a Christmas present because it would spoil the surprise. And these films are all about opening the box on Christmas Day.”

He also discussed his opinion on the prequels:
“Hmm. I turned one on the other night. Sky seems to have devoted a whole channel to them. The effects are clever but pointless. The skill is there, but so what? Coldness, that’s the word. Bleakness, even.”

Dine amidst the flora and fauna as the sun rises over the world-famous Jungle Cruise in Adventureland.

Becoming a Jungle Cruise skipper is no easy task. It takes years of training and practice—or at least a boat and a megaphone. In the interest of grooming newest batch of recruits—totally unrelated to rumors of skippers joining the local tribe of headhunters—we invite you to our Sunrise Safari Breakfast Adventure.

As your journey begins, you’ll meet your safari guide and make your way into the African savannah. There you’ll dine on a wild assortment of unique breakfast favorites inspired by the jungle diet of the rare “brunching tiger,” including fresh pastries, exotic fruit & chia parfaits, glazed pork belly bacon, pan-seared sausage and roasted gold potato & onion hash along with an assortment of juices, freshly brewed coffee and specialty teas.

After your feast is finished, your guide will escort you back to civilization in time for a private ride on the Jungle Cruise to hone your skipper skills before the park opens to the public.

To certify these brave explorers as officially unofficial Jungle Cruise skippers, each Guest will receive a special Tribal Mask keepsake to commemorate their adventure.
