The end of summer is almost here, which means it’s time to start getting excited about fun fall events!

Trick or Treating
It wouldn’t be Halloween without trick-or-treating, so there are candy stations set up all around the park offering sweet treats for kids to collect throughout the night. Guests with allergy concerns don’t have to miss any of the fun, just make sure to get a teal goodie bag from a cast member to carry around the various trick or treat locations. People with teal bags will receive tokens instead of candy at each stop, and once you’re done trick or treating you can take your tokens to one of the park’s Allergy-Friendly Centers to be redeemed for special treats. Allergy-Friendly Centers can be found at the Town Square Theater and the Liberty Square Ticket Office.
As usual, guests of all ages are welcome to come to the party dressed up in their favorite Halloween costumes. However, there are a few dress code rules you must follow.
- You can dress as your favorite Disney character, as long as you don’t pose for photos or sign autographs for other partygoers.
- Costumes must be family-friendly and not obstructive, offensive, or violent.
- Costumes can not include weapons or items that can be easily confused for weapons
- No sharp objects, pointed objects, or materials that may accidentally hurt another guest
- Masks can only be worn by guests who are 13 years old or younger and can not cover the whole face or eyes.
- Adults (guests 14 or older) are not permitted to wear full-length costumes, capes, or layered costumes.
Acceptable accessories include transparent wings, plastic light sabers, toy swords, and tutus. Keep in mind that Disney reserves the right to deny entry or remove guests with costumes that Cast Members feel do not follow the guidelines.
Several Disney characters will also be attending the party in their finest Halloween costumes. Beloved friends like Mickey, Minnie, Jack Skellington, and so many more will be hanging out all around the park ready to meet and mingle with party guests!
Magic Kingdom’s annual Halloween celebration always brings a variety of spooky and silly entertainment for partygoers to enjoy around the park. The Cadaver Dans Barbershop Quartet is back in Frontierland performing tunes like “The Oogie Boogie Song” and “Grim Grinning Ghosts” throughout the night. The comedic signing group is just one of many ways you will be entertained during the event!
Mickey’s Boo-to-You Parade
Mickey’s Boo-to-You Parade brings the Halloween spirit to life in a spooky procession through the park. Beloved Disney characters and evil villains join together in a series of incredible floats that represent different areas of Magic Kingdom.
The 20-minute parade includes stars from the Haunted Mansion like hitching ghosts and the Spectral Bride representing Liberty Square, pirates from Adventureland, and Clarabelle Cow hosting a Frontierland-inspired square dance. The Tomorrowland float includes Edna Mode, The Incredibles, Buzz Lightyear, and a crew of alien explorers. Wreck-It Ralph, Vanellope Von Schweetz, and the Sugar Rush Girls also make an appearance in this year’s procession. The grand finale is an ode to the darker side of Fantasyland starring Disney’s most notable villains.
