What Should the 2021 Disney Magic Kingdoms Halloween Update Be?

The Haunted Mansion Bride in Disney Magic Kingdoms Game

Disney Magic Kingdoms typically adds a Halloween event every year, and with the spookiest time of the year approaching, I am going to start speculating on what could be added to the game in a seasonal update this year.

Now many of the obvious choices have already come to the game. Essentially all of the significant Nightmare Before Christmas characters are already in the game, so I am assuming that is not what's getting added.

So what could be added? I have three main guesses.

Given the timing of the 101 Dalmations updates which will run throughout September, I think we can assume the Halloween Update this year will be a little smaller, so I am taking that into consideration with these guesses.


Mama Imelda Character Coco in Disney Magic Kingdoms Game

Coco, as a film based on and around Dia De Los Muertos, could easily inspire a Halloween update, adding a few new characters from the film. There are certainly more living and dead characters that could come to the game and make for a fun smaller update.

While not a Halloween film, it is still in the style of the season and would be a great update for a different holiday.

Haunted Mansion

The game already has one character from the Haunted Mansion, The Bride/ Constance Hatchaway, and another character or more from the attraction could make for a great update to the game to celebrate Halloween.

There are many characters who would make for great additions to the game from this attraction. The Hatbox Ghost, The Hitchhiking Ghosts, a Butler, and more would all be amazing additions to the game, and add parks original characters as Walt Disney World celebrates its 50th anniversary.

This would be my prefered update, but it is made somewhat less likely as there is only one parks original character in the game at the moment, even if they are from the Haunted Mansion.

Hocus Pocus

Hocus Pocus has become a Halloween classic, and adding characters from the film, specifically the three Sanderson Sisters, would be an amazing update. The movie has never been more popular and has become a seasonal tradition for many households. It would be a perfect addition to the game.

The only reason I think this might not happen now as in 2022 the film will be getting a sequel on Disney Plus. I assume that if the game was to add these characters, they would wait a year to release them alongside the new movie.


  1. I would Like to see "Return to Oz" from 1985 since the movie is set in October and scared a lot of people as kids characters could include Dorothy, Billina, Tik-Tok, Jack Pumkinhead, The Gump, Ozma, The Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion, Tin Woodsman, and Mombi. and Attractions could include The Emerald City, The Nome King's Lair, Yellow Brick Road, and Dorothy's House. Consessions could include a Ruby Slipper stand, Oz Crown Stand (the one the scarecrow wears), and a lunch pail stand (from the lunch pail tree).
