Halloween at Disney World- Fall Decor, Spooky Treats, Character Costume Cavalcades

Disney World will still be celebrating Fall and Halloween this year as Magic Kingdom navigates the reopening safety measures in place in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Despite the cancellation of Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, Disney is still going to decorate Magic Kingdom and celebrate one of the most popular holidays of the year with their guests from Sept. 15th to Oct. 31st. There will be Fall Fun seasonal offerings like decor, Halloween-themed cavalcade, themed treats, and costumes are welcome!

Cast members are preparing autumn decorations to fill Main Street, U.S.A. in Magic Kingdom with fall fun. The pictures released show pumpkin themed wreaths and fall foliage.

We will keep you posted on what other decor we can expect, it's likely that Disney will put some effort into these decorations as Halloween at Disney World is one of the most loved times of the year for many guests.

Minnie's Halloween DineHalloween Minnie Dine

Minnie's Halloween Dine, the spooky themed character dining, will return to Hollywood & Vine beginning September 25th.

Guests will be able to interact with characters from a distance like Minnie Mouse in her witch costume, Goofy as a spooky cowboy, Mickey Mouse dressed as a vampire, and Pluto wearing his Halloween collar. We expect this character dining option to be popular and with the limited capacity you should get your reservations as soon as possible.

Halloween-themed Cavalcade Mickey and Minnie halloween costumes

But don't worry, Disney World isn't going to ignore the fact that Halloween is the main event in the Fall season. Magic Kingdom has done a great job in their character interactions since reopening with character cavalcades at random times throughout the day. These cavalcades use a variety of parade floats, vehicle cars, and horses.

The Halloween-themed cavalcade will feature Mickey, Minnie, Pluto and pals wearing their Halloween costumes. In Frontierland, you can find Chip ‘n’ Dale in costume. And on Main Street, U.S.A. guests can see other Disney characters dressed up and riding the horse-drawn trolley.

And on select days, guests may find a cavalcade of Disney Villains including Gaston, Maleficent, Queen of Hearts, Jafar along with a nightmarish procession featuring Jack Skellington.

The Dapper Dans will also make their return to Magic Kingdom Park beginning September 20th performing as their undead alter egos The Cadaver Dans.

For the first time outside of a special ticketed event, guests of all ages can wear costumes at Magic Kingdom's regular operating hours.

Guests are still required to wear face coverings and follow the safety guidelines.

  • Costumes must be family-friendly and may not be obstructive, offensive, objectionable or violent.
  • Guests who dress like characters may not pose for pictures or sign autographs for other Guests.
  • Costumes may not contain any weapons that resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon.
  • Costumes may not contain sharp objects, pointed objects or materials that may accidentally strike another Guest.
  • Layered costumes or costume props that surround the entire body are strongly discouraged and may be subject to additional security screening.
  • Costumes may not reach or drag on the ground. (e.g. full-length Princess dresses).

PhotoPass photographers will also be available with special Halloween themed Magic Shots to incorporate into your pictures. You can find them at the most popular photo spot locations or search on the My Disney Experience app.
