What’s New for Halloween at Disney?
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party has returned and is offered select party nights from August 12- October 31, 2022 at Magic Kingdom. Plus, starting mid-August the parks get decorated with Mickey pumpkins, bats, and all things soooky. 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 12th this year.
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party | August 12- October 31, 2022
In Magic Kingdom and running select nights from August 12- October 31, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party offers trick or treat, ride overlays, shows, a parade, and more! Guests to this party can expect to enter Magic Kingdom Park as early as 4 pm, for a 7 pm party start time. We think this is the only party ticket you need to buy all year- as this event is unparalleled where Disney entertainment is concerned. Be sure to read all about Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party for all the details.
The Cadaver Dans on Main Street U.S.A | Magic Kingdom
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. They arrive via the Main Street Trolley, so keep an eye out for them and stop for a listen.
Disney Villains Halloween Character Cavalcade | Magic Kingdom
In Magic Kingdom, you may even see the Disney Villain’s Character Cavalcade. This seasonal cavalcade first debuted in 2020 as a way to bring more Halloween to the masses. And to give those not attending the Halloween Party something fun to watch. Featuring Gaston, Maleficent, Queen of Hearts, and Jafar you can often only see these folks at the party. Fingers crosses this fun cavalcade sticks around in 2022.
Minnie’s Halloween Dine at Hollywood and Vine | Hollywood Studios
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. Minnie’s Halloween Dine is available from August 12, 2022 to November 7, 2022.
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. Otherwise you can see all these costumed friends at the Mickey’s Not So Sacary Halloween Party.
Do Disney Characters have Disney Halloween Costumes?
YES! You’ll get to see favorite characters strolling the streets, on the character cavalcade, and on the Main Street Trolley!
Disney Halloween Snacks | Everywhere
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!
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. Check out our New Halloween Snacks at Walt Disney World post for all the buckets and specialty drink items released.
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!
