How to Have a Last-Minute Disney Halloween at Home
A Disney Halloween month can be a lot of things! Cozy fall recipes perfect for settling in and staying home. A slew of Halloween movies and classic Disney Channel Halloween episodes to watch and the best Halloween DIY projects to help spruce up your home for the season. Here are all our favorite ways to have a Disney Halloween at Home!
Disney Halloween Party Food
Last Minute: We love the Oreos dipped in orange frosting. Tip: Microwave store-bought frosting until it’s just a little softer and you can dip the oreo in the jar. Once dipped, place the cookie on wax paper to set. Meanwhile, you can grab dark chocolate chips ( which are a little bigger than normal chips) and flip them over so the flat side is up, and glue them onto the Oreos as mickey ears with frosting. You can also use chocolate melts if you have them on hand for the mickey ears.
If you have a little more time, explore the pins below. You can find them all on our Disney Halloween board on Pinterest. Also grab this copycat recipe for pumpkin spice latte , we always think the holidays get a whole lot better when you have a special coffee in one hand:) Add in some Pumpkin Spice Mickey Macarons and you’re all set.
Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe
We couldn’t rightfully say it was fall without trying a billion recipes for pumpkin spice latte to get us through the busy holiday season and all those parties! We love this Cinderella-inspired Pumpkin Chai Latte.
Halloween Monster Cupcakes
We also love the idea of just grabbing some cake mix for monster cupcakes of all kinds! This little green monster was found at Pop Century Resort at Walt Disney World. But you can make your own at home with some cake mix, frosting, sprinkles and candy eyes.
Disney Halloween Music
We love the music at the Boo To You Halloween Parade but sometimes you need something a little more scary, fun or non-repetitive. Take a look at the This is Halloween Music Lineup below if you got time to pull something together on your own.
Disney Halloween Costume Ideas
We already let you in on our Haunted Mansion costumes, but we’re always looking for good quick, last-minute throw-together ideas. Here were a few other favorites. Lauren Conrad’s Cruella costume took a little more work than we had time to do, but chances are you have a black dress somewhere that could make this work.
Disney Halloween Pumpkin Carving Ideas
Last Minute: Make it simple. Some paint, some cardboard cut into mickey ears and you’re all set.
Sometimes we get lazy. Mainly because sometimes… we just go to parties for the food. That said, we don’t necessarily always want to get all ambitious when it comes to pumpkin carving time with loads of seed and large knives. We do however still want to impress people… so sometimes we’ll paint our pumpkins instead. You can do this with paint pens, nail polish or whatever paint you have laying around the house.
Disney Halloween Decorations
Last Minute: Set up your Disney mugs as vases for orange flowers or as little stands for mini pumpkins.
Trying to figure out all the ways we can cut corners so we have enough money left over for Christmas gifts, later on, we many times will make our own decorations. Mind you, they usually look stellar, but still – they are homemade and cheap. We really liked the printed Disney Villain Wanted posters, and taking any ol’ Christmas balls, and a mickey hat from the parks for this wreath. We also love pulling together things we didn’t know we had to make something new! Check out our latest Disney Halloween Decor DIY honoring Haunted Mansion! Complete with fancy wreath and spooky webs.
Disney Halloween Games
Last Minute: We love fun and free Disney Games. Just click on the images below to print the Halloween Bingo Cards set below. Use candy as bingo markers and just call out the characters like standard Bingo. If you’re venturing out for trick or treat you can use these as they’re intended as Disney Halloween costume scavenger hunt checklist. Either way its a great way to infuse a little Disney into your party.
Got a little more time, check out this Haunted Mansion trivia and myth infographic. Use it as a trivia game and award winners candy.
Disney Halloween Movie Night
Last Minute: We’ve pulled together all the BEST Disney Channel Halloween Episodes you can watch on Disney Plus plus the best family-friendly Disney Halloween movies. We find all of these flicks are somewhat kid-safe and grandma-friendly. Some are found right on YouTube, and you can always pick up the others at your local library. Check out our spookiest movie nights. We’ve gathered recipes and fun for Haunted Mansion and Nightmare Before Christmas.
Whatever your plans for Halloween we hope you have the best time and find ways to make it a little more magical:)
