While a visit to the Mouse is on the list for a lot of vacationers heading to Orlando any time of year, there are other Orlando Halloween activities and attractions, many full of Halloween spirit, to fill your time. No matter how you celebrate Halloween or the fall season, there’s something for everyone. Make sure to bring a mask, as some places may require it for entry.
Disney After Hours Boo Bash
Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, and all your favorite Disney characters have concocted a spooky show full of family Halloween fun for all ages. After the Magic Kingdom closes for the evening, bash attendees will enjoy party music, decorations, “Character Cavalcades” and more, it’s a Halloween party like no other. Make sure to dress in costume and bring your Trick-or-Treat bag to collect treats from characters in their Halloween flare. There are no day park ticket or reservations required after purchase, but there are only a few select dates still available. Another perk to this ghoulish party: the after-hours ticketed event means smaller crowds and shorter wait times at your favorite rides and attractions!
Trunk or Treat
Save your cash for other souvenirs and experiences during your trip and head to the Promenade at Sunset Walk for the Kid’s Trick or Treating & “Trunk” or Treat car show. There are over two dozen locations giving out sweets and treats at the outdoor event. The event starts at 4 p.m. on October 30 and is free to attend.

Gators, Ghosts and Goblins
Head to Gatorland for a fright beyond seeing alligators spring from the water to snap food from trainers, or a trainer wrestle the beasts. This year, attend the 3rd annual Halloween celebration perfect for all ages. The daytime bash features multiple themed haunt zones, interactive characters, animal meet-and-greets, the Crocs and Cryptids Zone, Swamp Ghost’s Monster Museum, and more.
