Fall Fun at Magic Kingdom Park

From Sept. 15 to Oct. 31 you are sure to “fall” in love with Magic Kingdom Park all over again. You’ll soak in the aura of autumn with Main Street, U.S.A. dressed in fall décor and other seasonal offerings.

Of course, Halloween is THE fall holiday, and there will be some bewitching surprises this year, including a special Halloween-themed cavalcade with Mickey, Minnie, Pluto and pals wearing their favorite Halloween costumes. You may even spot those rascally chipmunks, Chip ‘n’ Dale, in costume over in Frontierland, and look for other Disney character friends dressed up and riding the horse-drawn trolley down Main Street, U.S.A.

And speaking of costumes, get yours ready! To bring some Halloween party fun into the park this year, for the first time guests of all ages can wear your funniest, Disney-ist, most creative costumes during Magic Kingdom Park regular operating hours from Sept. 15 to Oct. 31. As an important reminder, costume masks are not permitted for adults; only children younger than 14 years old are permitted to wear costume masks. In addition, all guests are required to wear approved face coverings during their visit. Before you arrive, check our Know Before You Go page and Costume Guidelines.

As you can see in these new photos, our cast members are prepping pumpkin-themed wreaths that will adorn lampposts up and down Main Street, U.S.A., putting you in the fall spirit almost as soon as you step foot inside the park.

Autumn at Walt Disney World Resort wouldn’t be complete without our popular fall treats, such as the famous Pumpkin-spiced Waffle Sundae at Magic Kingdom Park. Visit our official Foodie Guide to Fall Treats at Walt Disney World: Parks Edition, which features all of the yummy details.

Festive Halloween-themed merchandise will be available in select locations around the park. Featured items include a new spirit jersey, Loungefly backpack and candy-swirl Minnie Mouse headband, along with a selection of apparel inspired by Disney Villains and more. 

And be sure to capture your special moments with Disney PhotoPass! Photographers will be available throughout the park for themed photo opps. But beware – happy haunts may materialize in your pictures!  We’ll share more fall and upcoming winter holidays details at Walt Disney World Resort soon, so keep checking Disney Parks Blog for updates.


  • Are they still doing the candy trick or treat or something?

  • Hope this means Christmas decor will magically appear the first week of November. Any official word yet?

  • Love the new villains merch! I wish I could be at the park for Halloween, but hopefully next year.

  • Will be spending my birthday in Sept at Epcot. Looking forward to stay at the Riviera as well. I know this is a different time right now, but hope there will be fall decorations at Epcot as well!

  • Any word on the Headless Horseman?? This is absolutely my favorite and taking some people for their first Halloween experience and I really hope they make it available.

    And the Boo to you parade?? Maybe a modified version? 😩😩

  • I love the stories and videos, but I miss the regular authors like Jennifer-Fickley-Baker and Steven Miller. Are they ever coming back?

  • It would be so awesome if they do the Halloween overlays on the rides too! Space Mountain in total darkness was one of the best rides I’ve ever had on it!

  • This is fantastic! Two years ago I went to the very first August party of the year 2018. The special events have been something I look forward to with my niece, especially the Halloween party because we trick or treat and then swap out for peanut and tree nut free alternatives for my nephews (her little brothers.) This at least gives us a way to dress up and spend quality time even though we are in our 20’s now. The rest of the month we try to match and Disneybound but this is extra special. Thank you! -Lexi

  • Still looking for the Hades spirit jersey!
