Despite the heatwave, Cruella was sporting her classic fur coat. Not pictured is Dr. Facilier, who commenters claim was also out and about on that same day. The comment sections on both videos were filled with excitement and envy, as fans are thrilled to see villain activity once again in the parks.

One user speculated that the characters were testing their skills ahead of this Halloween season, as Disney is finally bringing back the beloved Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Several party dates have already sold out thanks to Guests who are elated by its return.

On top of that, Disney Parks Blog released a fall Foodie Guide filled with themed menu items that promise to conjure up some Halloween spirit.

Additionally, this Halloween season brings with it a sequel that some fans feel is decades overdue. The Sanderson Sisters return to run amuck once again in Hocus Pocus 2, coming to Disney+ on September 30.

The evidence of evil lurking around EPCOT is just the start of what is sure to be an exciting spooky season at the Disney Parks.
