Part of Visit Orlando's 13 Weeks of Frightful Fun in Orlando
Visit Orlando continues our 13 Weeks of Frightful Fun in Orlando with this week's ghostly good tips to help plan your Halloween fun in Orlando.
The happiest Halloween celebration on earth is well underway and you'll have until November 1 to trick-or-treat your way around the Magic Kingdom theme park at Walt Disney World Resort.
Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party continues on select nights and requires the purchase of a separate admission ticket. Party-goers can start entering the park at 4:00PM. So come early and grab your wristband, your commemorative trick-or-treat bag and your park map - you'll need all three.
This event is magically frightful fun for both kids and adults alike. In fact many adult guests don their favorite Halloween costumes right along side their younger "scarers."
Here's a few more boo-rific tips:
- Enjoy the signature Halloween events first before riding your favorite Magic Kingdom attractions. You can do those later or on another visit.
- Don't forget to wear comfortable shoes as part of your costume. There will be lots of walking, dancing and possibly skipping involved.
- Claim your spot for the "Boo-to-You" Halloween Parade early. The second parade is typically less crowded and easier to get a good view.
There are new additions along with all your party favorites to enjoy this year. Here are some of our ghoulish recommendations:
- Joining the party this year are Jack Skellington and Sally from Tim Burton's "The Nightmare Before Christmas." Find them hanging about in Main Street's Town Square area.
- Mike and Sulley, the stars of "Monsters, Inc." are hosting their own Monstrous Scream-O-Ween Ball in Tomorrowland. Be ready for a "scream" of a good time.
- The parade has a new warm up crew - Phineas and Ferb take charge of the pre-parade fun on Main Street, U.S.A.
- More must sees include "Mickey's Boo-to-You" Parade featuring your favorite Disney characters in Halloween style and "Happy HallowWishes" fireworks spectacular, which showers orange and glittering color over Cinderella Castle.
- The most hair-raising event of the night is the ride of the Headless Horseman. Be prepared for a shiver as he gallops along the parade route just prior to kick off. He's coming for you!
