As a Disney vacation planner, I would be amiss if I failed to mention Halloween at Disney Parks. Every year Disney puts together a party for Halloween enthusiasts that is fun and scary “Disney style”. There are dozens of attractions that you can enjoy in each land at the park especially decked out for Halloween. Costumes are encouraged for children and it is a great way take the kids out for Halloween. If visiting during the Halloween season, this is definitely something to consider enjoying. Back again this year it is a chance to collect candies, sweets while the park hosts ghosts, entertainment and all kinds of fun Disney characters. And what is so exciting is that it is safe to bring children of all ages to this event because it is, as the name implies, “not-so-scary” at all.
When to Attend, What to Wear and More

Although Disney encourages everyone to enjoy the season with costumes it is a good idea to make sure you know the rules. It is important to remember that Disney parks are geared toward families, so be sure to follow their guidelines when attending the party.
- Layered costumes or costume props that surround the entire body are strongly discouraged and may be subject to additional security screening.
- Costumes may not reach or drag on the ground.
- Clothing with objectionable material, including obscene language or graphics excessively torn clothing.
- Capes may be worn if the length does not go below the waist.
- Themed T-shirts, blouses, sweatshirts and hats are acceptable.
- Acceptable accessories include transparent wings, plastic light sabers, toy swords, and tutus. Headwear may be worn as long as it does not cover the face.
- Masks of any kind may not be worn by adults but partial masks may be worn by children.

That said come and enjoy some fun with the Boo to You Parade, Happy Hallowishes Fireworks show, Hocus Pocus Villain Spectacular show and the Cavedar Dans Barbershop Quartet. The cost for the event is $74 per ticket and is worth it considering the park is closed to all but those who purchase tickets for the event.
