Experience Spooky and Magical Fun with Mickey, Minnie and All of Your Disney Favorites
Halloween at Walt Disney World in Orlando is an exhilarating experience that stretches far beyond the confines of a single day. Beginning in mid-August and running until October 31, 2023, Halloween is the longest "season" of the year at Disney World.
The Magic Kingdom becomes the heart of all things spooky, adorned with Mickey-shaped pumpkins and other Halloween decor. As nightfall descends, the park transforms into the setting for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, a ticketed special event. Filled with Halloween-themed entertainment, this party promises a night of fun that isn't too scary for the little ones.
The highlight of the celebration is undoubtedly Mickey's Boo-to-You Halloween Parade. This spectacle features exclusive characters, such as Dr. Facilier, Captain Barbosa, and Oogie Boogie, parading through the park.
Moreover, most Disney resorts offer special complimentary Halloween activities for guests on Halloween day. These include costume contests, spooky arts and crafts, and more. At Disney's Days of Christmas, guests can even pick out a spooky ornament from The Haunted Mansion or Nightmare Before Christmas and have it personalized.
Specialty dining is also a highlight come Halloween season, including Minnie's Halloween Dine. This monsterly feast overcomes Hollywood & Vine in Disney's Hollywood Studios with an all-you-care-to-enjoy character dining experience. Spend time with Mickey, Minnie, and friends in their Halloween costumes. The event runs through November 4, 2023.
Another tasty treat is that Epcot's International Food and Wine Festival runs at the same time, offering plenty ofseasonal delights from sea to sea. In 2023, the festival will be held through November 18.
But the fun doesn't stop there. The Magic Kingdom is the only Disney World theme park that decorates for Halloween, with the majority of decorations, treats, and Halloween-themed merchandise available here.
