Halloween Disney Style
Florida Guide > Magic Kingdom
If you get the chance we can highly recommend this time of year. Disneyworld is so beautiful, hosting ‘Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween party on specified days from mid September until the end of October. (Guests are required to have an additional event admission ticket and guest numbers are controlled). Attendees are encouraged to dress up in favourite Halloween costumes and there is a real feeling of everyone being part of the ‘party’. (Make sure you are comfortable as you’ll be in them for quite a while and need to get in and out of rides! ) If you’re from Europe you’ll be fascinated at the variety of costumes and the effort made by all ages.
As you arrive at the park, high above the entrance you’ll find Disney characters made to look like they’re made from pumpkins smiling and greeting you. Orange material drapes and decorates lampposts creating an immediate atmosphere of anticipation.
As daylight disappears to dusk the lights down Main Street USA come on whilst additional lights decorate the buildings reflecting cobwebs. Around the park we found little areas themed into Halloween areas – nothing scary but fun to find and explore. Disney cast members wear brightly coloured Halloween outfits in green, purple and orange. Guests don’t miss out on Trick-or-Treating as there are friendly villains and ghosts handing out candy as well as stalls throughout the park where you can collect candy. Apart from the regular rides there is Mickey’s ‘Boo-to-You’ Halloween Parade. The Headless Horseman ‘heads’ up the parade with characters from the Haunted Mansion and other spooky characters following. To finish off there is a beautiful firework display. Mickey’s “Boo-to-You” Halloween Parade is led by the Headless Horseman and is full of characters from the Haunted Mansion and other spooky favourites. Throughout the park, children can collect candy from friendly villains and ghosts! The parade was very popular so you may want to get into a position early.
Disneyworld is a large park so if you’ve got young children remember they may tire. And a tip from us is that if they are very young you may find it easier to leave just before the park closes before the main crowd start to depart.
Don’t forget to take your camera/smartphone– there are so many photo opportunities that are different from a visit at other times of the year. It was an amazing night, one we will never forget.
