    Hello! We are thinking about a trip during Halloween. What are the must sees and dos during that time of the year? Thanks!

    Hi, Anne! October is the best time to go to Walt Disney World, in my opinion. The weather is terrific.  The crowds are manageable.  You can still comfortably do the water parks.  There are often specials like free Disney Dining Plans offered (watch the Special Offers page closely). For foodies, the International Food and Wine Festival is in full swing.  However, above all of  these, it is when Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party happens! It is a not-to-be-missed hard ticket (requires a separate admission) event!  The Magic Kingdom is decked out in its Halloween finest - including ghosts on Main Street, U.S.A. Characters sport their costumes, too.  Guests of all ages attend in costume, but it isn't required.  Because the number of Guests is limited, you can ride almost every attraction during the party time frame, especially if you follow my family's lead and skip the Trick-or-treat locations.  HalloWishes is the holiday-themed fireworks presentation that you can only see on party nights.  The Boo-to-You parade is one of my family's favorites. Watch for the Haunted Mansion Cast Members; they are my favorite part.  Check out the Halloween Party page! Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
