It’s that time of year again…when grim grinning ghosts come out to socialize! So what do those grinning ghosts do when they head to Walt Disney World? Here are some hauntingly fantastic ways to celebrate Halloween time at Walt Disney World.
Trick or Treat and Main Street
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP) is probably the number one Halloween event to go to at Walt Disney World. MNSSHP starts in mid-August and runs until November 1st. There are about a billion blog posts covering all of the ins and outs of the party, so I won’t go into too much depth here. You can also check out Disney’s official website for all the details and book your tickets.
I used to attend this event every year, but haven’t gone in a while due to the rising ticket prices and number of people in attendance. However, I would still highly recommend this event to anyone who wants to have some not so spooky Halloween fun. I definitely think this is a party you should at least attend once. It’s a great opportunity for adults to dress up and go trick or treating.
If you can’t attend one of the Halloween parties, you can still enjoy all of the Halloween decorations at the Magic Kingdom without purchasing a MNSSHP ticket. I think Main Street USA is pure magic during Halloween. Plus, there’s no need to go to MNSSHP in order to enjoy the most iconic Halloween attraction of all, the Haunted Mansion. The Magic Kingdom is definitely the park to be at for ghoulish delights!
It’s the Great Pumpkin Crawl, Mickey Mouse
There’s no shortage of pumpkin flavored treats found throughout the Walt Disney World resort. The fearsome foodies can haunt the grounds searching for the tastiest pumpkin treats on property. Will it be the pumpkin beignets at Port Orleans, pumpkin soft-serve at the Magic Kingdom, or a chocolate pumpkin shot in the Germany pavilion? There are no shortages to the number of pumpkin yummy goodness that you can try during the Halloween season.
Silver Screen Spooks
Most of the resorts will be showing Halloween favorite films like Nightmare before Christmas and Hocus Pocus at some point in October. My favorite places to check out a holiday movies is at Camp Fort Wilderness. You can make s’mores at the fire pit, and it’s got the best Halloween atmosphere (despite not having the Sleepy Hollow offering this year). Watching a movie at a Disney resort is one of the rare “free” things that you can do at Disney World. Mouse for Less is a great place to find all of the movie schedules for the resorts.
Where the Wild Things Are
Every Halloween, the golf carts at Camp Fort Wilderness put on costumes and go for a stroll through the park. The Halloween golf cart parade has traditionally been on October 30th and 31st. Guest decorate their golf carts and put on a parade. In addition, many campsites are also decorated. You can take a stroll to look at the sites or pay for a carriage ride. It’s $55+ for a 25 minute carriage ride. These are just a few of the MANY Halloween festivities that take place at Camp Fort Wilderness.
Oogie Boogie to the Party
Disney Springs is party central come Halloween. You’ll usually find street performers and dance parties. There are plenty of Halloween treats to try here too. Be on the lookout for some WonderFall Flavors! Some locations may even have a Halloween themed party. Last year, The Edison threw a Nightmare Before Christmas party. Check out Disney Springs’ calendar of events to see what might pop up this year.
