Fall into Magic at Disney Springs
Disney Springs always pulls out all the stops for the fall months at Walt Disney World. Whether it’s a WonderFall Foodie Crawl, Fall into Magic or a Scavenger hunt for all the Fall Disney Treats across the shops. You will be sure to find something fun over at the Disney Springs Info Center to add a little Fall Flavor to your Disney Springs day.
New Disney Fall Merchandise
So many Halloween and Fall things to buy! Another of our favorite reasons to visit Disney World in the Fall is the merchandise. While we are chronic browsers, we 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. Luckily you can grab loads of the new Fall, Food and Wine and Halloween Merchandise on shopDisney.com. Check out the latest Disney Halloween Merchandise for 2022 on the site!
New Disney Snacks in the Fall
Head to any of the Disney parks, resorts or Disney Springs for new snacks filled with apple, caramel, chocolate and fall flavors of all kinds. Many restaurants even adjust menus to accommodate fall desserts and entrees. Check out all the New Disney Fall Snacks to help get you in the mood for the season.
Disney Resorts in the Fall
Disney Resorts get into the feeling of the season as much as the Parks! We love browsing the gift shops, scouting out new fall flavors in the dessert cases, and watching the fun Halloween movies on the lawn. Did you know there are even certain Disney Resorts that are better in the fall? From upping the coziness factor to location and the best fall snacks, check out all our favorite Disney Resorts for Fall.
Disney Decorations in the Fall
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.
Fall at Walt Disney World 2022
We absolutely love Walt Disney World in the fall. If you’re looking for the best time to go to Disney World aim for the second or third week in September. We also love early November when all the fall decorations are still up and the weather is cooler. Hopefully, this post has given you some amazing things to look forward to for your Disney Fall Vacation. Have any favorite experiences we missed? Let us know!
