Halloween at Disney Parks

At Disney parks, the end of summer means the beginning of Halloween. When the happiest place on Earth becomes spooky for two months, it’s still a magical place to visit. Pumpkins and fall decorations line Main Street, USA and many rides are decorated with a Halloween twist. Disney holds special events around this time such as Halloween parties, parades, performances, and fireworks. The whole family is encouraged to wear their costumes to the park to join in on the fun. Don’t worry, everything is kept PG so the kids won’t end up hiding behind Mom and Dad the entire time. The parks hold parties (tickets are required) that allow meet and greets with Disney characters that only come out this time of the year, including the Headless Horseman, Ursula, and Jafar. They also sell seasonal merchandise, such as Jack-o’-lantern Mickey Mouse mugs, which sells out quickly. When you’re feeling hungry you can pick up a number of delicious Halloween treats prepared with gooey marshmallows and sweet candy. These photos give a glimpse into how spook-tacular the Disney parks get during the fall season.
