Have an Oogie Boogie time! Halloween at Disney
For those who still like a little spooky but not chills and frights, Halloween at Disney is for you. Each park has autumnal Halloween decorations, rare character sightings and limited-time themed food and drinks that are only served during the Halloween festivals. Most parks will also have an after-hours party where you will experience Disney After Dark, with special shows and even Halloween overlays to some rides!
