Fall foliage and Mickey pumpkins adorn the light posts on Main Street, U.S.A. Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is in full swing at Magic Kingdom Park, and the 2019 Epcot International Food and Wine Festival kicks-off this week on August 29, 2019. All of these magical events could mean only one thing, Fall has arrived at Walt Disney World Resort. And while the temperatures may still say summer, the Disney Parks Moms Panelists say, “bring on Fall!”

“As the days get shorter, I love having time to enjoy the stunning sunsets around the resorts and spend time in the parks at night,” explained Robyn M. “Each theme park is beautiful in its own way at night, from the shadowy palm trees and neon lights of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, to the twinkling lanterns and firefly-lit trees of Magic Kingdom Park. Walt Disney World is gorgeous every day of the year, but the golden light of fall holds a special kind of magic.” 

Brandy B. and her family are also big fans of Fall and think the Magic Kingdom park decorations are quite spooktacular. She reminds Guests to be sure and take a peek at all the décor on Main Street, U.S.A. “Many of the pumpkins that line the shop overhangs are quite unique, and some of them can scare up quite a few laughs.”
