One of my favorite times of year to go to Disney World is during the Halloween. It is a magical experience to see Magic Kingdom any time of year, but it really comes to life in a whole different way during the fall months. From August through October you will find that the park transformed! While we love to attend Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, you don’t have to buy the ticket to get to enjoy the Halloween at the Magic Kingdom.
Halloween at the Magic Kingdom is a treat for the senses! The first thing that you will notice when you arrive at Magic Kingdom is the enormous jack-0-lanterns and candy corn colored banners in front of the Magic Kingdom railway station.
When you enter Main Street USA, you will immediately be greeted by holiday scarecrows, pumpkin displays and even more Halloween decor! These make great pictures spots for some lovely fall family photos! Take time to walk around the entire area and notice all the special things that Disney does to transform the park this time of year.
Everywhere you look there is something Halloween-themed in Magic Kingdom. My favorites are the Mickey Mouse pumpkin wreath displays hanging on lamp posts throughout the park. At night, they glow!
Take time to look around the front of Cinderella Castle. There you will find some special Disney character statues that only come out during Halloween at the Magic Kingdom!
Food is also a little more special this time of year because you can find Halloween treats not available any other time of the year. There are Halloween themed cupcakes, candy apples and cookies (like these delicious Mickey Mouse Jack-o-Lantern Cookies)!
And if you want to do some shopping, you will find a ton of one of a kind Disney Halloween items! There are candy bowls, plush, candles and lots of decorations!
These are just a few of the many reasons why I love spending Halloween at the Magic Kingdom. What about you? What are your favorite things about Halloween at the Magic Kingdom?
