Boo! Oh, I didn’t mean to frighten you. The real chills come from the Halloween décor at Magic Kingdom Park. Decorating the park happens overnight and a team of cast members work throughout the year prepping all the decorations, including Halloween-themed bunting, garland and a lot of specialty crafted pumpkins – like the Cinderella Coach wreath.

Debuting last Oct. as part of the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary celebration, the wreath will again line Main Street, U.S.A., and surround Cinderella Castle for this EARidescent occasion. But you don’t have long to marvel at these magnificent coaches. Once the clock strikes midnight on Nov. 1, they’ll turn back into the traditional Mickey pumpkins we all know and love and will be stored until the fall magic returns next year.

Debbie McGowan is one of the talented decorators who helped create this piece and is excited for them to be up for the full Halloween season this year. “It was an honor to help craft the Cinderella coach wreaths just for the 50th   Anniversary celebration, and I’m excited to see them return this year,” Debbie said.   

Check out the video below to see all that goes into decorating The Most Magical Place on Earth for the most wicked season of the year with a touch of 50th Anniversary celebration magic!

Now as they say, “look alive” and be sure to take in the fall decorations next time you’re at the Magic Kingdom Park. And don’t forget to join our ghost and ghouls to celebrate all things haunted during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party on select evenings through Oct. 31. Oh, and no promises that a hitchhiking ghost won’t follow you home. Happy Halloween!
