Walt Disney World Brings New Fall Fun to Magic Kingdom

Walt Disney World may have cancelled this year’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party due to COVID-19, but they’re still planning to celebrate fall and Halloween with new decorations, food offerings, and even a bit of a rule change.

First, the characters will be getting in the fun by dressing up in their favorite Halloween costumes. Some will be appearing in specific locations, like Chip and Dale in Frontierland. Others will be dressed up and riding the horse-drawn trolley right down down Main Street, U.S.A. There won’t be up-close photo-ops, but close enough (yet still socially distant) to get them in your photos.

There will also be a special Halloween-themed cavalcade with Mickey, Minnie, Pluto and pals.

The park itself will be dressed for fall with pumpkin-themed wreaths that will adorn lampposts up and down Main Street, U.S.A. They always look so festive!

Fall brings to mind certain flavors like pumpkin and pumpkin spice, cinnamon and apples, and lots of chocolate. So it’s no surprise the Magic Kingdom will be offering a plethora of treats with these flavors.

Among those I plan to check out are:

Magic Kingdom - Cinnamon Donuts and Hades Nachos

The Hades Nachos (Black bean nacho chips topped with “fiery” buffalo chicken, lettuce, tomato, sour cream, salsa, and jalapeño) and Cinnamon Donuts (served in a Hitchhiking Ghost Novelty container) at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn & Café.

The Pumpkin Spiced Waffle Sundae (Pumpkin spice-flavored waffled topped with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, caramel drizzle, and sprinkles) at Sleepy Hollow, and The Not So Poison Apple Cupcake (a spiced apple cupcake with pecan crunch buttercream themed after a poison apple) at Pinocchio Village House.

Not to mention the fall and Halloween food-related collectibles like the Jack Skellington sipper, the Haunted Mansion Madame Leota sipper, and the Oogie Boogie glow cubes and popcorn bucket.

And now for the truly big news… this year, for the first time, all guests will be allowed to wear family-friendly costumes during Magic Kingdom Park regular operating hours. Costume masks are not permitted for adults, but children younger than 14 years old are allowed.

All guests are still required to wear approved face coverings during their visit.

The fall fun at Magic Kingdom starts September 15, and runs through Halloween, October 31. Reservations and valid admission are required for entrance to the park.
