What happens when the “Happiest Place on Earth” becomes overrun by haunted ghouls and spooky spells? Disney’s Magic Kingdom Park hosts its annual “Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party” every Halloween to give guests a taste of the famous theme park after dark, with some spooky surprises thrown in. This separately-ticketed event will feature your favorite Disney characters, special access to Halloween rides and attractions, and unique performances you won’t want to miss.
Even the nearby LEGOLAND Park falls under the Halloween spell. Every weekend in October, the park becomes a Halloween wonderland of spooky entertainment including a haunted trail where kids can fend off spooky creatures and ghouls alongside their favorite LEGO characters.
Something strange is descending on Universal Studios and it’s not for the faint of heart. On select nights throughout October, Universal Orlando Resort will transform into a truly frightening scene of haunted houses, fearful creatures, and sinister scare zones that are sure to give even the seasoned horror junkie a fright for their life.
Under the sea, fun and frights await at SeaWorld. Throughout September and October, select attractions will be taken over by spooky ghouls and friendly ghosts, bringing a Spooktacular experience to SeaWorld that is only available during Halloween.
