Walt Disney World allows Halloween costumes for first time

LAKE BUENA VISTA, FLA – For the first time ever, guests of all ages can wear their Halloween costumes during regular operating hours at Magic Kingdom Park, from Sept. 15 to Oct. 31.  

Due to COVID-19, all guests must wear an appropriate face covering while visiting the park, however guests younger than 14 are permitted to wear a costume mask in addition to their approved face covering.

Other activities are planned in celebration of fall.

As guests walk down Main Street, U.S.A., they will see glowing pumpkin wreaths that inspire the Halloween spirit and a Halloween-themed cavalcade will travel the route, featuring Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Pluto and pals dressed in Halloween costumes. Guests may also spot Chip ‘n’ Dale in costume in Frontierland, and other Disney characters dressed for Halloween riding the horse-drawn trolley.

The park will celebrate the season with special food and drinks, including the famous pumpkin-spiced waffle sundae.

Each of the Walt Disney World theme parks will welcome fall with popular specialty treats, such as Halloween cupcakes at EPCOT and Disney’s Animal Kingdom, along with frozen apple cider at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. As temperatures cool in Central Florida, fall is a spectacular time to visit the parks:

The Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival offers more than 20 global marketplaces featuring culinary delights to sip and savor.

At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, guests can travel to a galaxy far, far away in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, enter the cartoon world of Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, or play with their favorite toys in Toy Story Land.

Guests visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom can explore Pandora – The World of Avatar, venture to the “top of the world” aboard Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain, or have a wild adventure on Kilimanjaro Safaris.

More details about fall activities at Walt Disney World will be announced soon. For more information on The Most Magical Place on Earth, visit WDWNews.com and DisneyParksBlog.com.
