Many places in the country are just starting to enjoy the beauty of warm summer weather even though Florida is, for the most part, sunny and warm all year.

Disney, however, is already looking forward to fall – and specifically Halloween.

They’ve started making plans for the fall holiday, so it’s time that you start doing the same.

Let’s take a look at what you can expect if you’re vacationing around Halloween in Disney World.

Return to Sleepy Hollow

Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort hosts a lot of activities – probably more than any other of the Disney resort hotels. This year, the resort will host a special event for Halloween.

Guests can head over to Tri-Circle D Ranch on select dates in September and October for a spooky experience. There will be a screening of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, a 1937 film, plus meet and greets with the Headless Horseman.

For $22, general admission will get you this plus a limited edition Disney Trading Pin. Premium admission is $38; for this, you’ll be seated in the front rows and get priority access to the meet and greet plus a treat bag.

Shows take place on certain days from 8pm to 10pm, and Disney is accepting reservations now. It’s possible that this event could sell out especially on dates closer to Halloween, so get your reservations in now!

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party has been delighting guests for over a decade. It’s the only time that guests over 14 years of age can dress up in costume and peruse the park. It’s also a hard-ticket event, which means crowds are lighter, and guests can see and do more in a short amount of time.

If that’s not enough reason to visit, you also get to meet and greet characters that you can’t normally see during regular park hours.

This year, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party opens two weeks earlier than previous years and runs for two months! Disney makes the event bigger every year too meaning more characters, more attractions, and more candy!

Magic Kingdom closes early on select nights for Halloween ticket holders and welcomes things like the Boo to You parade, HalloWishes, and the Headless Horseman.

Tickets aren’t on sale yet, and we probably won’t know pricing until sometime in May, but Disney announces these things well in advance because people plan Disney vacations years in advance. It’s important to know about these special events so you can plan for them or plan around them including your Advanced Dining Reservations.

Here are the dates for 2017:

  • August 25 and 29
  • September 1, 7, 10, 12, 15, 17, 19, 22, 24, 26, 29
  • October 1, 3, 5, 6, 9, 10, 12, 13, 15, 17, 19, 20, 22, 24, 26, 29, 29, 31

Some parties will sell out, so if you’re planning on going to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party in 2017, make your reservations now!
