Halloween Fun at Disney Parks

We all know visiting Disney Parks is magical any time of year, but Halloween time is especially thrilling. From Orlando to Anaheim, Calif., your favorite attractions are transformed into spook-tacular events for both kids and adults through October 31st. Keep reading to explore our favorite can't-miss Halloween events and treats.

"Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party"

Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party offers something for everyone, including stage shows like Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular at Magic Kingdom Park in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. The show features your favorite sisters, the mischievous Sanderson Sisters from Hocus Pocus, who throw an evil Halloween party and includes appearances by Dr. Facilier, Oogie Boogie, Maleficent and other Disney villains, along with dancers, projections, and special effects.

Characters in Costume

Donald and Daisy Duck, along with all your other favorite characters, greet guests and pose for photos in their best Halloween attire at Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Trick-or-treat with your little ones, enjoy the Halloween parade and stick around for the amazing Happy HalloWishes Fireworks Show.

"Happy HalloWishes Fireworks Show"

Cinderella's Castle in Magic Kingdom gets a spooky makeover at the Happy HalloWishes Fireworks Show, with spectacular orange fireworks and illuminated pumpkins projected with light. Narrated by the Ghost Host from The Haunted Mansion, the sky lights up with fireworks to the tunes of "Grim Grinning Ghosts," "Poor Unfortunate Souls," "Never Smile at a Crocodile," "The Skeleton Dance" from Silly Symphony and more.

It's All Treats (No Tricks)!

You'll find more than a dozen specially-created treats at Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, including this Mickey-shaped cinnamon roll with orange icing and a chocolate spiderweb.

Jack Skellington Panna Cotta

Jack Skellington, from The Nightmare Before Christmas, gets his own dessert at Sleepy Hollow in Liberty Square. A vanilla panna cotta parfait with chocolate cake, vanilla buttercream, white and dark chocolate crisp pearls, dark chocolate curls and a white chocolate Jack Skellington is the perfect nod to the character.

Worms and Dirt

Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe offers up a creepy, crawly treat. A chocolate gravestone with chocolate cake and mousse with a chocolate glaze is topped with chocolate sandwich cookie crumbs and gummy worm candy.

Pumpkin Mickey Waffle

What's better than a waffle? A Mickey-shaped, pumpkin-flavored waffle with whipped cream, sprinkles and caramel sauce offered at Sleepy Hollow.

Halloween Time at Disney California Adventure Park

Walt Disney World Resort isn't the only Disney Park celebrating Halloween. Oogie Boogie takes over Disney California Adventure Park with his twisted tale of a forever Halloween, inspired by Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas . Oogie Boogie's oversized silhouette beckons guests through the main entrance of the park and brings a swarm of bats to life around Carthay Circle Restaurant and Lounge.

Guardians of the Galaxy - Monsters After Dark

The attractions at Disney California Adventure Park transform each evening from Mission: BREAKOUT! to Monsters After Dark. All-new lighting on the exterior of the Fortress alerts guests that something inside has gone awry and empty glass cages greet guests in the lobby. Guests will be tasked with helping Rocket find Groot amidst the monsters inside.

Halloween Time Characters

Along Buena Vista Street at Disney California Adventure Park, guests can enjoy Halloween decorations in store windows and Mickey and his friends donning their period-appropriate Halloween costumes, such as a bat for Mickey Mouse, a ghost for Goofy and a witch for Daisy Duck - all in playful fun, of course.

Cars Land Haul-O-Ween

Everyone's favorite Cars characters have transformed Radiator Springs into Radiator Screams for a Haul-O-Ween celebration during Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort. The characters wear Halloween car-stumes as they greet guests and prepare to go trunk-or-treating. Mater is dressed as a van-pire , while Lightning McQueen is dressed as a superhero. In addition, two Cars Land attractions get a Halloween makeover. Mater's Junkyard Jamboree becomes Mater's Graveyard JamBooree and Luigi's Rollickin' Roadsters becomes Luigi's Honkin' Haul-O-Ween.

Cars Land Eats

Frightfully delightful treats and eats can be found throughout Disneyland Resort through October 31st, including at Cars Land. This Spoke-y Cone macaron is filled with marshmallow buttercream and a Halloween favorite, candy corn.
