It seems the Sanderson Sisters are running amuck again this Halloween season. They’ve cast their spell and can be seen at several spooky shindigs and eerie events this year:
The troublesome “Hocus Pocus” trio have already been spotted in front of Cinderella’s castle at the Magic Kingdom hanging with the villains of the Kingdom as part of the Hocus Pocus Spelltacular. This live show is conjured up every night of the extremely popular Central Florida Halloween event, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party which runs select nights, through Halloween.
