After cancelling Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party this year, Magic Kingdom Park is still dressing up for fall – and hoping everyone will join them in the fun by allowing all guests to wear Halloween costumes this year.
Disney World has previously banned adults and guests over 13 from wearing costumes during regular operating hours, except during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, but on Friday they reversed that in their announcement that guests of all ages will be able to wear costumes in the Magic Kingdom from Sept. 15 to Oct. 31, Halloween, during normal hours.
Guests of all ages can for the first time wear their Halloween costumes during regular operating hours as Walt Disney World Resort celebrates the Halloween season.
Magic Kingdom guests will be able walk down Main Street, U.S.A. and see glowing pumpkin wreaths that will inspire the Halloween spirit.
A Halloween-themed cavalcade will travel down Main Street, U.S.A. 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 along Main Street, U.S.A.
Festive Halloween-themed merchandise will be available in select locations around the park. Featured items include a new spirit jersey, Loungefly backpack and candy-swirl Minnie Mouse headband, along with a selection of apparel inspired by Disney Villains and more.
The park will celebrate the season with special food and drinks, including the famous pumpkin-spiced waffle sundae.
Themed photo opportunities from Disney PhotoPass will be available at select locations throughout the park.
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.
Hopefully just talking about the upcoming fall season, will bring on some “fall-like” temps early!
