What’s New for Halloween at Disney?

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is returning in 2022, with select party nights from August 12- October 31, 2022. We’re also anticipating the return of Disney’s After Hours Boo Bash. Hopefully. Starting mid-August the parks get decorated for the spooky season. This marks the beginning of the fall and Halloween season, so while new Halloween treats and decorations may not be fully in the parks until early September, you can count on spooky vibes as early as August.

This special ticket event at Magic Kingdom offers evening activities from 9-12 pm with a 7 pm park entry on select nights. Similar to the other Disney After Hours events, this Halloween Party includes spooky character cavalcades, new snacks, merchandise, and snack stations. Check out all the details in our Disney’s After Hours Boo Bash post. 

The Cadaver Dans on Main Street U.S.A

The Cadaver Dans ( aka The Dapper Dans in Halloween gear) arrive in Magic Kingdom later in September and bring extra spooky sounds to Main Street USA. And Disney characters along the parade route waving from afar! Plan to see Mickey Mouse and friends in Halloween costumes.

Disney Villains Halloween Character Cavalcade

In Magic Kingdom, you may get lucky you may even see a Disney Villains Character Cavalcade for the season featuring Gaston, Maleficent, Queen of Hearts, and Jafar. Plus Jack Skellington will also be making appearances sporadically throughout the season!

Minnie’s Halloween Dine at Hollywood and Vine

In Hollywood Studios, Minnie’s Halloween Dine arrives at Hollywood & Vine, in early August. With a buffet-style meal and Disney characters, you’ll get photos and interactions with Minnie herself! Dressed in her Halloween best as a happy witch. Mickey Mouse arrives as a vampire, Goofy as a cowboy and Pluto even gets a Halloween Collar. This special meal is the perfect way to kick off the spooky season safely. 

Disney Characters Dressed Up for Halloween

One of the best parts of Halloween at Walt Disney World is seeing all our favorite characters in their Halloween costumes! With Pooh and Friends in their best “spooky” costumes and even Jack Skellington gets some time in the parks! Be on the lookout for spooky Character Cavalcades and impromptu character appearances across the park. 

Do Disney Characters have Disney Halloween Costumes?

YES! We’ll get to see our favorite characters strolling the streets, on the character cavalcade, and on the Main Street Trolley!

Disney Halloween Snacks 

Ok, guys. You knew this one would be at the top of our list because we go crazy for seasonal snacks. Plan to see Pumpkin Spice cupcakes, new spooky cake pops, and candy corn dole whip. You can find Disney Fall Snacks in every park, resort, and Disney Springs. Check out all the new Disney Halloween Snacks.

Disney Halloween Merchandise

So many Halloween things to buy! Another of our favorite reasons to visit Disney World in the Fall is the merchandise. We are chronic window shoppers and rarely buy these goodies because airlines have luggage weight limits. But that doesn’t stop us from staring and wishing and wondering how much shipping it directly home would be. Thankfully shopDisney has Disney Halloween Merchandise to hold us over!

Popcorn Buckets at Walt Disney World for Fall 2020

Disney Halloween Popcorn Buckets

The Disney Fall Popcorn Buckets in the parks are available mid-September through October 31, and are available during open hours at ALL FOUR Parks! These are HOT items! So be sure to grab them when you see them. There’s a purchase limit per person, to deter resellers.

Disney Halloween Decorations

So we’ve talked about the magic that can happen when it’s Autumn at Walt Disney World before. And this Mickey Pumpkin Wreath is the guy we look forward to seeing every fall. You can spot fall garlands, wreaths, decorations, and more all over the Disney Parks. We love to revel in the feelings of Fall even when it’s 90 in Florida. And if you’re looking for extra spooky, head to Haunted Mansion, where you will find extra cobwebs on everything and sometimes even more ghouls than usual!
