Disney’s Halloween Party at Walt Disney World
With Disney’s Halloween changes this year, we’re unsure if another option will arrive for families with younger children, as a 9:30 pm start time for any kid is a little late. At present, there is no reason to believe that Walt Disney World will add any additional parties, now that Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party has been replaced with this event. That said, it’s important to remember that fall at Walt Disney World will still see Halloween Snacks, Halloween Merchandise, and Fall decor throughout the parks. So even if you’re not attending this party, you can still get your fill of Halloween fun at Walt Disney World.
