With the after hours Halloween party moving to Disney California Adventure this year, many thought that Halloween Screams, the fireworks show that was the highlight of Mickey’s Halloween Party, would not be presented at Disneyland Park. This morning, however, the Disneyland Resort shared that Halloween Screams WILL be returning most nights during Halloween Time.

The show will only feature “supernatural projection(s) and special effects” most nights, but on select nights, fireworks will be added.

The resort also confirmed the return of several favorites to both Disneyland Park and California Adventure. Halloween Time begins September 6th and continues through October 31st.
