Also new this year is “Halloween Screams – A Villainous Surprise in the Skies.”  The new fireworks spectacular will haunt the nighttime sky throughout the Halloween season.  To start the show, “Master of Scare-omonies” Jack Skellington appears in a flash of fire above Sleeping Beauty Castle.  Thanks to Jack’s ghoulish charm, haunting melodies fill the air and a Halloween pyrotechnics extravaganza explodes into the night.  Such classic Disney villains as Maleficent, Ursula the Sea Witch and Oogie Boogie join in the “spirit” of the celebration, and even Zero, Jack’s faithful ghost dog, will make an appearance.  Spectators in Disneyland are encouraged to participate in a bone-chilling Halloween Scream-Along during the show.
