We're going to walt disney world

Walt Disney World


I can't even begin to explain how excited this makes me. People that know me in real life and fellow Disney fan's I've met on line will know that WDW is literally all I talk about all the time. To me, Disney really is the happiest place on earth and WDW is the happiest of these happy places. Some of you may know that my son and I were lucky enough to visit WDW last December (2016) and we had the absolute time of our lives and now we are luckily enough to be going back for an all new (to us) Disney experience - I'll give you a clue; we fly out in October ...

That's right we are going for our very first Disney Halloween!!!!!
 Omg, I can not wait to see how they decorate The Magic Kingdom and see all the Disney Villains and buy all the Halloween merch (insert excited emojis here).

Halloween at WDW begins the end of August and runs through until the 1st or 2nd of November so that's quite a big window of opportunity if you are wanting to go to see all the Halloween stuff. We are going early October and aren't actually there for the 31st - however I'm pretty pleased with the way with timed it as the parks should be a lot less busy and we still get the full Disney Halloween experience.

Speaking of the full experience, we've booked tickets for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party and I think this is what I'm looking forward to the most. 

For those of you that don't know, Disney actually closes The Magic Kingdom at 7pm on certain dates throughout the Halloween (and Christmas) period for special ticketed events - the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. These tickets need to be brought in addition to your regular park tickets and are pretty pricey. I believe they start off around $70 per person for the parties earlier in the season (August/September) and rise to over $100 per person nearer the 31st.


What you're getting for your money is, in my opinion, well worth it. The tickets give you exclusive access to the park. On the nights of the parties, cast members sweep the park for non ticket holders and direct them to the exits, meaning that only ticket holders will remain after 7pm. Party ticket holders will be permitted into The Magic Kingdom from 4pm until 12am when the party finishes.

Alongside this are numerous exclusive entertainment opportunities -
  • Children (and adults) are permitted into the park in Halloween costume - just make sure to read Disney's strict guide before choosing costumes.
  • There are Trick or Treating stations across the park where you can get free candy.
  • There are party exclusive character opportunities such as the 7 Dwarfs, Jack Skeleton and Sally and the Queen of hearts.
  • Classic character (Mickey and Minnie etc) Halloween costume opportunities.
  • Character dance parties such as Screem-O-Ween with the Monsters Inc gang.
  • Boo To You Halloween parade led by the headless horseman - I am dying to see this, it runs twice a night and I'm hoping to see it both times.
  • The Hocus Pocus Villain Spectacular - I'm not going to lie, this is the entire reason that we booked party tickets. Hocus Pocus is one of my favourite movies so when I heard that Disney were bringing the sisters back I knew I had to go.
  • HalloWishes (will it still be called this now Wishes has gone?) - a party exclusive firework show.
There's so much to fit in that I don't think that we'll be doing any attractions the night of our party except maybe The Haunted Mansion for obvious reasons.

Have you ever been to Disney during Halloween? If so what are your must see's and top tips?

Thank you so much for reading,

  2. OMG OMG OMG! Sounds like so much fun! Lucky you! I have never been to Disneyworld but I have bean to Disneyland for halloween and it was a blast! just try to get the fast thing tickets so that you don't wait in the queue too long

    1. We can book fast passes 30 days before we go do definitely going to book the busier rides (frozen, toy story mania, soarin etc) xx

  3. I'm literally so excited. Americans go all out for Halloween as well so pairing that with Disney, I can only imagine how great it's going to be xx

  4. Thank you for writing this article, it was very informative! I was actually looking at Halloween at Disney this morning, and I was trying to get a feel what the park actually offers. I got a much better understanding in your article than all the others.

    It's been a dream of mine to go there around that time for my birthday which is in October. I've been contemplating going either this or next year, but have been on the fence.

    1. Ah, thank you. That's very kind of you to say. I've wanted to do Disney at Halloween for years so I'm so excited to finally be going. I would say just keep in mind the difference between UK and US school holidays as obviously the park will be a lot busier and the closer to the 31st you go, the more expensive it becomes xx

  5. This just made me so excited for my trip in 8 weeks! I'm excited to see piccies when your back! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ˜✨🏰🎑🎒

    1. Don't worry I'll spam you with loads of them. I'm going to be so jel when you're there I'm back in boring old England xx
