For the first time ever we spent Halloween at the Magic Kingdom and we had tons of fun! During the Halloween season, the Magic Kingdom hosts a Halloween party called “Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween party.” It allows guests to the park to dress up, which is nice because most theme parks do not allow its guests to dress up. Once the park closes to regular guests, it stays open for guests with tickets to the party. The children get to walk around and trick or treat for candy. What better way to spend Halloween?
The only downside to spending Halloween in the park was that it was really crowded. We’ve seen the parks be crowded before but this was on a whole other level. The lines were very long. The upside was that guests were dressed in their Halloween costumes so it was fun to look around and see what everyone was dressed as. We didn’t anticipate being in Disney on Halloween so sadly we did not have costumes.
We did get to check out the new store named Memento Mori. It is a gift shop that is completely themed around the Haunted Mansion. It hadn’t been opened for very long in October so we had to check it out. The items in the shop were really cool. They had all sorts of different things that one would think could be found in the Haunted Mansion. We’d love to, one day, purchase the dishes they offer with the Haunted Mansion logo all over it.
It wouldn’t be a Halloween trip unless we made a stop at the Haunted Mansion so of course we did. It did break down while we were on it but luckily it wasn’t down for very long and we got to complete the ride.
Overall we had a great time during our visit to the Magic Kingdom and we can’t wait to get back there!
