With Disney scaling back it’s fall offerings this year, it means we must get a little creative in making a Halloween itinerary to Disney World. Here, I’ve listed festive activities that can be done in all four parks. Have a spectacularly spooky season!
Haunted Mansion (Magic Kingdom)
Okay, let’s start with the obvious. There’s no experience that can quite put you in the spooky mood as much as a ride on the Haunted Mansion.
Twilight Zone Tower of Terror (Hollywood Studios)
A pretty close second to the Haunted Mansion is the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. I love the macabre ambience of walking through the lobby. This attraction also has a thrill factor to it, which makes it even more terrifying.
Mainstreet Magic (Magic Kingdom)
I wait all year to stroll down a pumpkin decorated Mainstreet USA with a tasty fall treat or drink. It’s the happiest place in the happiest place on Earth, especially when the weather has started to cool.
Villains Photo Scavenger Hunt (Magic Kingdom)
Disney fans love their villains. Lucky for us, there are plenty of new villain cavalcades out there this year. One activity that I am looking forward to doing is taking pictures of as many villains as possible. This would make a fun competitive game too.
Most Magical Pumpkin Patch (EPCOT)
Have you ever wondered how Disney grows Mickey Mouse shaped pumpkins? You can jump on Living with the Land to take a look at their little pumpkin patch.
Trick or Treat around the World (EPCOT)
MNSSHP might be cancelled this year, but that’s no reason to stop the search for tasty treats. Going on a candy tour around EPCOT’s World Showcase is a way to collect and try candies and sweets from around the world.
Batty for Bats (Animal Kingdom)
Over at Animal Kingdom, you can learn about some frightening creatures like bats and tigers.
Creepy Crawlies (Animal Kingdom)
It’s Tough To Be a Bug is one of the most terrifying shows at Walt Disney World. It plays on our natural fear of bugs and has some pretty frightening effects.
Monster Feature (Hollywood Studios)
A perfect Halloween activity for me would include a trip to Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and then dinner at the Sci-Fi Dine In. I love the aesthetic of this restaurant and the clips of old horror and sci-fi flicks. I mean…you can’t have a Halloween celebration without Bela Lugosi, right?
Fall Flavors (Various Parks)
Disney unleashes a plethora of Instagramable fall snacks. Trying some new fall flavors at each park is another great way to get in the fall spirit.
Day of the Dead (EPCOT)
While not a Halloween activity, EPCOT’s Mexico pavilion gives guests the opportunity to learn about other cultures’ fall festivities. In Mexico’s pyramid, you will find some interesting art displays dedicated to the Day of the Dead. You can also catch Mariachi Cobre during the Taste of EPCOT Festival.
Character Couture (Various Parks)
Lastly, Disneybounding as your favorite villain is a great way to get into the sinister spirit. I love how creative guests get with their outfits. If you are unfamiliar with Disneybounding, check out this video.
