Good news spooky family, Halloween is not canceled after all for 2020. Disney announced this morning that the Magic Kingdom Park will indeed be dressed for its fall best with a slew of seasonal fall decor, food, and themed offerings. So when will Disney World be decorated for Halloween?
Running from September 15 through October 31, park-goers will get to a chance to experience a seasonal transformation of Walt Disney World’s signature park.
While Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party cancellation was a hard hit to fans, Disney has brewed up a host of other treats to help fill the void. Park-goers will have a chance to wear costumes during regular park operating hours, breaking a long-standing rule that normally prohibits it. In lieu of a full parade, a Halloween-themed cavalcade featuring Mickey, Minnie, and friends will roll through the Magic Kingdom on a yet to be announced cadence. Other characters dressed for the holiday are promised to make appearances on Main Street, U.S.A. and throughout the park.
We’ve got to say, we’re most excited about the fall décor that will be springing up! Expect a healthy dose of Mickey-shaped pumpkins, fall wreaths, and more. The park is shaping up to be the perfect spot for Halloween photo ops! Photopass photographers will be snapping photos that fit the season, offering us a chance to see “happy haunts…materialize” in pictures.
No season at Walt Disney World would be complete with a whole host of new snacks! The Fall Treats Foodie Guide has our mouths watering! Pumpkin-spiced milkshakes, Mickey cinnamon rolls, a pumpkin-spiced waffle sundae? Bye, summer diet! The snack list alone seems like a reason to make a visit.
And of course, there’s merch! We’ve already got a look at the host of new merchandise that will be rolling out for the season. See our picks from the Halloween line here! The pieces hit shelves at World of Disney in both Disney Springs and Downtown Disney early last week.
