Whether you’re a major Disney fan or not, Walt Disney World is an enjoyable destination for the whole family on Halloween. Since Walt Disney World specializes in making every occasion magical, Halloween is an incredible experience there. For an extra fun experience, you can visit Mickey’s-Not-So-Scary Halloween party, an after hours event that brings festive excitement to all who attend.
5 Reasons You’d Love To Spend Halloween At Walt Disney World
Although traveling to Walt Disney World in October might be hard to arrange considering school schedules, the fun that you can have is well worth it. Check out these 5 reasons why Halloween is a fantastic time to visit.
1. You can see the characters in their Halloween regalia at the Haunted Mansion.
Have you ever wondered what the Disney characters look like in their Halloween costumes? When you attend Mickey’s-Not-So-Scary Halloween party, you have plenty of opportunities to see your favorite characters decked out in festive gear. From Daisy Duck to Mickey Mouse, all the most well known characters come by to celebrate with you.
When you’re celebrating Halloween with your kids, being around the festive Walt Disney World characters will make the occasion extra special for the whole family.
2. Gaze at the dazzling, orange fireworks sparkling over Cinderella’s castle.
At all times of the year, Cinderella’s castle looks completely magical. My travels this summer (that you can read about here) showed how incredibly exciting it is to go inside the castle and to get up close to it during special events.
For Halloween, Cinderella’s castle is especially beautiful. Colorful fireworks light up the sky and cast an eerie glow on the castle. As an additional touch, the illuminated pumpkins light up the castle walls.
Although the fireworks at Cinderella’s castle are special at any time, they are especially incredible this time of year!
3. The whole park gets in the spirit of Halloween.
If there’s one thing Walt Disney World does well, it would be celebrations! With festive decorations and lighting around all of the Magic Kingdom, the park is a major step up from the trunk-or-treat you’d be attending if you stayed at home.
Since you can’t see these fun decorations at any other time of year, Halloween is a great time to book your Disney vacation.
4. Trick or Treating is more fun when you’re at Walt Disney World.
If you still aren’t sure about veering from your traditional Halloween plans, consider the fact that kids can still engage in typical Halloween activities. Kids can even go trick-or-treating while they visit the Magic Kingdom. With ample opportunities for kids to indulge in sweet treats, you’ll have more than enough candy.
5. Watching a parade brings ghostly encounters!
Although your average Disney parade brings cheery fun and smiling characters, Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade has a ghoulish twist.
Since this is Disney World, you know the parade will be kid friendly. No need to worry about whether the community’s haunted house will be too frightening this year! Simply come to Disney World instead, where your kids will have a pleasant experience and enjoy their surroundings.
