Halloween at the Walt Disney World Resort

A Special Trick-or-Treat Experience Just For You at Walt Disney World Resort

posted on September 20th, 2013 by Jean Volante, Manager of Dream Making, Disney Floral & Gifts/DEG


UPDATE: Good news! You asked for the Disneyland Resort party map and I’m happy to include that for you today in follow-up. Also, I’m posting an updated map for the party on the 24th. Thank you for keeping me on my toes!

Remember how excited we got as kids receiving candy on Halloween? It was one of the few times a year we could receive an overwhelming amount of sugar and the stash was completely ours. Dressing up was fun and the Halloween parties were great, but the candy made it the real treat. Let’s just say that at Walt Disney World Resort, we take the holiday to a whole new level with our Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Where else can you experience an amazing Halloween party complete with Disney characters, a parade, fireworks and trick-or-treat trails that are to die for!

This year, I got ahold of two Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party park maps to help you plot your trick-or-treat path in preparation for your big night. The first park map covers the party’s trick-or-treat trails for September 24.

This second map covers the September 20, 27 and 29 party date trick-or-treat trails. More to come real soon on the October party map.

And here’s the map for Mickey’s Halloween Party at the Disneyland Resort.

Now for the inside scoop:

  • There will be 11 trick or treat locations including two trails, three of which are in New Fantasyland. You may even find some interesting “characters” involved to make your experience even trickier.
  • There will be healthy options, too. Special Dietary options are available at City Hall upon request (but this is not a treat location).
  • Worried that all the good candy will be gone by the time you get here? Take heart in the fact that there will be more than 11 semi-trailer refrigerated truck loads of mixed candy for the whole season.
  • Wondering how you’ll carry all this candy in the parks? I thought so. The park provides free treat bags for guests at the Main Entrance and at one of the satellite wristband locations.

Now, for those who are looking for an enhanced trick or treat park experience, here’s a treat you may not know about. Check out these adorable light-up Mickey’s Trick & Treat Pumpkin and Minnie’s Trick & Treat Pumpkin from Disney Floral & Gifts, that also doubles as a gifting experience. (A gift delivered to your resort room that ties in with an experience or attraction in the parks).

For instance, the light-up pumpkin has an autograph book and pen for character meet and greets in the parks, treats to snack on, a light-up lanyard for the park, and a magic trick they can learn (and let’s just say it will keep the kids busy for hours – I’ve tried it myself). And of course the pumpkin doubles as their trick-or-treat pail for collecting candy!

And for the older kids, check out A Spirited Halloween Surprise packed with fun glow pieces that will make their visit to The Haunted Mansion a real scream! It also doubles for a candy bag.

But here’s the cutest offering yet for Halloween. It was designed especially for your little one – My First Disney Visit Halloween.

Mickey included his pal Duffy in this gift to take along on all your little one’s “firsts” at the Disney Parks. It includes all their “firsts” such as: Mickey ears; autograph book for character greetings; plush; and Mickey pillow-blanket. There’s an adorable heart-warming story too, that will tug on your heart strings. It’s a gift and keepsake you’ll totally want to preserve and remember memories made for years to come. Trust me!

And, get this – if you want to add more treats and surprises to any of these gifts, you can. They’re available for purchase now on Disneyfloralandgifts.com or by calling 407-WDW-GIFT. Gifts can be delivered anywhere on Walt Disney World Resort property and same-day delivery is available. One thought to consider: There are limited gifts so it’s better to order sooner rather than later. This year is a great opportunity to “treat” your family to a real sweet experience.

Oh, and by the way, I’m going to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party real soon, too. If you see an adult woman dressed as a “Fairy Godmother” sitting on the ground in a pool of candy smiling, it’s been a successful evening!

More than a few people would like to see the Disneyland map for Mickey’s Halloween Party.

 

Jean Volante on September 20th, 2013 at 4:34 pm

Hi Greg: Great question… I’m check with our partners as we speak…

Georgette on September 20th, 2013 at 3:48 pm

What is the difference in maps? I see none. I downloaded the one one the web page that provides details and it’s the same as well

 

Jean Volante on September 20th, 2013 at 4:47 pm

Check the attractions as well…specifically Space Mountain. Our team wanted to make sure that all detail was available for you.

Disneyland version please!

Jeffrey from FL on September 20th, 2013 at 5:37 pm

Jean, those two maps are EXACTLY the same. I scoured all of the information on it and even Space Mountain is the same.

 

Jean Volante on September 23rd, 2013 at 5:07 pm

Thanks for keeping me on my toes Jeff! I just received a new update and hoping to get it to everyone soon.

This is so cool! I agree with Greg I would love to see the Disneyland version. My family is flying out from Texas in a few weeks to visit and I would love to be able to see the map and use it as a reference. Thanks so much!

 

Jean Volante on September 23rd, 2013 at 5:12 pm

Good news…we just received approval to share the DLR party map…stay tuned! Hoping to post it real soon.

By “interesting characters” on the trails, what do you mean, Jean?

What kinds of characters can we expect at them and when will they start appearing at the parties?

 

Jean Volante on September 23rd, 2013 at 5:19 pm

There are some new characters that have been added to the party this year. I don’t want to spill the “candy corn” but let’s just say they are of a villainous nature.

We just returned last week and did the first night of the party Sept 10 This had been the first time for us and it was wonderful, the 9 of us all had 101 Dalmatian’s costumes with our spots we were a sight, and the entire evening was truly magical how many people can say I trick or treated in Walt Disney world? This will be a memory we cherish forever, it was also our 4 year old grandsons first visit as well.

 

Jean Volante on September 23rd, 2013 at 5:21 pm

Awww…that’s great Misti. Isn’t the experience something? Truly over the top, amazing and magical all in one.

I already ordered Mickeys Trick or Treat pumpkin from the Disney Florist for my little to use to MNSSHP. I was concerned it wouldn’t be at our hotel at check in and the Disney Florist customer service moved my delivery date to day prior to ensure it would be there. It was easy and I was truly grateful. We come to MNSSHP every year, so this is an added bit of magic. Can’t wait to see the look on my little’s face when she gets the presents from Mickey!!

Jenel from OH on September 22nd, 2013 at 2:44 pm

My family also attended on Sept 10th. We had a wonderful time. We had 4 college aged kids with us and they ran around trick or treating like little kids. It was so fun to see.

Your inner child definitely comes out at Disney World!

The two Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party park maps are not large enough to read.

Jill on September 23rd, 2013 at 11:00 am

Do adults have to dress in a costume to go trick or treating?

 

Jean Volante on September 23rd, 2013 at 5:03 pm

Hi Jill:

Good news.. you dont have to dress in costume to go trick or treating. But then again, dressing up is alot of fun too.
