Halloween at Magic Kingdom. - Orlando / Florida Guide
Florida Guide > Magic Kingdom
So we all know that Universal proudly boasts that it holds the number one Halloween event (and it is perfectly true) But. . . . it is VERY scary; so what do you do if you have young children?
Well. you head off to Disney of course.
And the Disneyworld event is exactly what it says on the tin; ' Mickeys Not So Scary Halloween Party' and it runs on selected dates from the 11th of sep to the 2nd of november in the Magic Kingdom park. .
Now, if you have been to the Universal Halloween event, you will know that it is strictly forbidden to dress up in Halloween clothes but Disney positively encourages it!
So what can you expect? well this is Disney so many area are beautifully themed and the area round the Haunted House is like a ghostly wonderland.
You will find your favourite Disney characters in Halloween garb but I must warn you that the queues to meet them are pretty long. The music is appropriately spooky and special lighting is used to good effect.
The parade turns into a ' Boo to You' spectacular and features many of the characters from The Haunted House' A Headless Horseman leads the parade.
The evening is rounded off by a firework spectacular and even this has a Halloween theme. This is called Happy Hallowishes and some of your favourite Disney villains go trick or treating in the sky.
And while we are talking of trick or treating will you do it here? of course you will. With a bit of luck, the children will go home with enough sweets to last for the rest of your holiday. I am afraid you have to queue for these as well.
This is a separately ticketed event and some nights do sell out.
Last year, the hours were from 7 p. m. to midnight but check nearer the time to see if there are any changes.
So now for my top tips to make the most of your evening:
Select your day carefully; avoid weekends and very close to the date.
Get your costumes from Walmart or you can even get bits from Dollar Tree.
Queues will be long; if you have seen the first parade, time a ride or two for the second.
This may seem like an extra drain on your holiday money but it will leave lasting memories for your children.
