Halloween at Walt Disney World


Disney World is usually one of the best places on earth during the Halloween season. The Magic Kingdom, the Disney Parks, and the Disney resorts are decorated in bright fall colors, Halloween decorations and feature great fall snacks and treats. 

While the Halloween and fall seasons will look a little different this year, Halloween at Disney World is still a magical. With low crowds and short wait times, fall is the perfect time to visit Walt Disney World this year!


Magic Kingdom Halloween

Disney’s Magic Kingdom is known for fall colors, Mickey pumpkins, and of course, Disney themed Halloween costumes! This year Halloween at the Magic Kingdom looks a little different.

In 2020, the Magic Kingdom will feature Halloween themed character cavalcades, special Halloween treats and for the first time ever, Disney is lifting their restrictions on Halloween costumes. You can now wear a Halloween costume to the Magic Kingdom from September 15 – October 31.  Disney usually limits Halloween costumes to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party but the party has been cancelled this year during to the unprecedented pandemic.

Make sure to get fun Disney Halloween costumes for your next Disney trip or for your at home Halloween celebrations! 


Traditionally, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween party is filled with Halloween costumes, trick or treating, Hall-O-Wishes, exclusive character greetings, special ride overlays, a Hocus Pocus spectacular, and much more! Make sure to check out Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party for next fall! 

Besides Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, you need to check out the decorations during Halloween at the Magic Kingdom. Main Street U.S.A is lined with orange and yellow leaves, Mickey shaped pumpkins, fun scare crows, and other fun decorations. If you’re looking to get in the Halloween spirit, a visit to the Magic Kingdom is just what you need! 


Epcot International Food and Wine Festival 

While Epcot isn’t decorated for Halloween, during the fall season Epcot hosts their annual International Food and Wine Festival. Many people consider this one of their favorite Disney events every year. 

During the fall and Halloween season, Disney’s Epcot features unique food marketplaces, culinary demonstrations, fun entertainment, merchandise and many other exclusive events.  The food marketplaces are all located in Epcot’s World Showcase and feature delicious flavors and drinks from Brazil, Hawaii, India and many more. 

Epcot Wine and Food Festival

Like the rest of the world, Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival looks a little different this year.  In 2020, Epcot’s World Showcase features over 20 food booths, entertainment, and touches of Disney’s Flower and Garden Festival with beautiful flowers and topiary’s. 

While Epcot’s International Food and Wine Festival, isn’t Halloween themed, this event shouldn’t be missed during Halloween at Disney World! 


Halloween at Hollywood Studios 

During September and October, Disney’s Hollywood Studios features Halloween dining at Hollywood & Vine.  Hollywood & Vine is a character dining location at Hollywood Studios that features Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, and Goofy all dressed up for Halloween. 

This special Halloween event is typically a buffet but the menu has changed in 2020 to accommodate safety procedures. Check out the menu at Disney World’s webpage! If you’re looking to see the characters in special Halloween costumes, make sure to check out this Halloween event at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Halloween at Disney World Resorts 

Like the Magic Kingdom, many of the Disney World resorts are dressed up in Halloween and fall decorations.  Many of the Disney resorts also feature yummy Halloween snacks and treats. On off days, I love to visit the other Walt Disney World resorts to look at the Halloween decorations and try all the fall snacks! 

Many of the Disney Parks and resorts also feature unique Halloween merchandise. If you like yellow, orange, and purple, make sure to pick up these special Halloween at Disney World souvenirs.  

Halloween is going to look a little different around the world this year. Visiting Disney World at Halloween is one of the most magical experiences. Everything is decorated in fall colors, the Disney parks smell like fall, and you truly get in the Halloween spirit. If you haven’t visited Disney World in the fall, you should definitely consider going in the future!

  1. I would love to visit Disney during each of the major holidays, but I bet Halloween is especially fun with everyone dressed up and the way they dress up the park as well. This gets me excited to be able to travel again and for Halloween as well!

  2. I always loved this with my kids when they were little. They are teens now, and are too chicken for Hollywood Horror Nights. Disney is truly dreamy this time of year with all of the decorations. Love it.

  3. Great stuff, Kelsey. I haven’t been to Disney since I was like 8 haha. But it seems like it would cool to go back, especially during Halloween. Hopefully COVID-19 starts clearing up so we can all go back to supporting amusement parks and fun destinations. Thanks for sharing,

  4. I’ve been to Disney once during the fall and it was magical! I love these pictures and am so happy some of the magic is alive despite the pandemic!

  5. Hallowe’en costumes and Disney World combined?!?! It’s my daughters dream come true. I wish we could travel this fall, but will keep this in mind for future travels, as she’s been asking to go to Disney for ages.

  6. I LOVE WDW at halloween! Not so scary party is hands down one of my favourite experiences as I love Jack Skellington! Can’t wait to go back some day 🙂
