Disney Decorates Magic Kingdom for Halloween Party

Summer might still be in full swing, but the Cast Members in Walt Disney World Resort are already hard at work transforming Disney’s Magic Kingdom to suit some fall celebrations!

Journalist Ashley Carter has shared images from the Walt Disney World Resort’s famous theme park, the Magic Kingdom, revealing that the Magic Kingdom is putting on more and more of its fall attire. Pumpkins and brown, orange, and red foliage decor are being added to the Disney Park bit by bit, in preparation for a well-known autumnal Disney event that is coming up: Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!

Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a fan favorite when it comes to special events that take place within Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort. This multi-night Halloween party is beginning on August 12 and happens again on select nights all the way through Halloween (i.e. October 31). Guests can expect spooky yet fun festivities including trick-or-treating, a fun Halloween parade, a special stage performance, Meet and Greets with Disney villain characters or heroic Disney characters, Halloween costumes being worn by classic Disney characters (including Disney villains), and (of course) special Halloween food!

Many Disney events have gone through periods of closure due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party might just be some Disney fans’ most-missed event. Walt Disney World Resort is clearly eager to get on with the autumn fun and the Disney villain-filled events, since decorations are already going up!

While August might seem early for fall decor, since Florida is feeling the heat of summer as we speak, plenty of Disney World Guests will be happy to learn that there is almost two months’ worth of chances to experience the Halloween party that brings Guests everything from a Halloween parade to a Disney villain Meet and Greet!

Disney Park transformations like these are often done at night, while the Disney Parks sleep, so to speak. We’ve seen fun footage of Cast Members’ efforts to change Disney Park decorations at night before, particularly around Christmastime, and it looks like Disney World is adopting a similar strategy for Halloween — albeit a more subtle one, since the pumpkins and Halloween decorations are being brought in a little at a time!

Are you heading to Disney World this fall to celebrate Halloween with Mickey Mouse and pay a visit to spooky attractions like the Haunted Mansion? Are you a fan of spooky celebrations and Disney villain celebrations like the Oogie Boogie Bash in Disneyland Resort and the Hocus Pocus Villain Spectacular, or do you prefer less scary rides like the Mad Tea Party?
