The witching hour fast approaches! Last week we looked at Disney movies and more to get you in a Halloween mood any time of year, and now let’s take a peek at Disney delights just for All Hallow’s Eve. Whether you want to plan the perfect party, craft up the perfect costume for trick-or-treat, or make a pilgrimage to one of the Disney Theme Parks for a special Halloween party, we’ve got all the info you need to spook it up in style.
There’s no better starting place for your homemade Halloween than Spoonful.com’s extensive Halloween Section. Crafts, games, printables, recipes, and more – it’s a treasure trove of ideas. Just for we who love Disney, Spoonful is offering a Disney Halloween idea for every day in October. Print Evil Queen candyboxes, create eerie Autumn décor, or even whip up last-minute masks.
Find recipes for sweet treats and savory dishes alike, including a bunch with Disney themes – we love the Jack Skellington cupcakes and the Munchable Monsters can easily be Disneyfied into Munchable Monster Mickeys with addition of pepperoni-slice ears. You’ll find ideas for party treats to serve at your monster bash or for kids to share at school, plus dinner ideas and even healthy dishes to balance out all that candy consumption! Even a picky eater can’t resist a nutritious lunch when it’s in the form of a Jack Skellington Bento Box.
Spoonful also has a treasure trove of costume ideas, from cute to clever to deliciously creepy. If you want a cornucopia of costume ideas and accessories, turn to DisneyStore.com’s Halloween store – your order will arrive in time for Halloween if you choose 3-day express shipping no later than Thursday, October 25, or 2-day express shipping no later than Friday, October 26. From princesses to pirates, villains to superheroes, there’s a delightful disguise for everyone in the family!
Maybe you’ll spend this Halloween exploring a Haunted Mansion and shaking hands with roving Villains – in the most magical locations of all, the Disney Theme Parks. In that case, the Parks have plenty to do and see in the spookiest of seasons, from seasonal décor to special events. Visit displays of pumpkin-carving, enjoy the Halloweenified Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy, and nibble on autumn treats throughout the Parks.
You can revel the evening away at Halloween parties that aren’t too eerie for young Guests at both Disneyland Park and the Magic Kingdom Park. On select nights (including October 30 and 31) and requiring a separate ticket purchase, Mickey’s Not-so-Scary Halloween Party at Walt Disney World Resort’s Magic Kingdom and Disneyland’s Mickey’s Halloween Party combine the fun of trick-or-treating with the magic of live Disney entertainment – at both events you’ll find a Halloween parade, a special fireworks show, and Disney Characters wearing their own Halloween costumes to meet and greet. Each event’s parade and fireworks show is unique to that Park, so if you’ve been to one, consider visiting the other!
Whether your Halloween is spent at home, out on the town, or at a Disney Theme Park, we wish you a safe and sweet night full of magic.
