Magic Kingdom: Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party
This Halloween party at Magic Kingdom does exactly what it says on the tin – it’s a fun dress up occasion for all the family with none of the gore of other Halloween events! And you really do have to dress up to fit in…children and adults alike make a huge effort for Mickey’s party, so if you want to join them, you definitely won’t be out of place.
On top of this, there are special parades, trick-or-treat-stations and, our favourite, ‘treat-trails’! To follow the treat trails, all guests are given a treat bag to fill up as they trace the trails on their special maps.
For live entertainment, there’s the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular stage show, featuring the Sanderson Sisters from the movie Hocus Pocus; two showings of Mickey’s Boo To You Parade, and the spectacular Happy Hallowishes fireworks display. Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party takes place on select nights from 7pm until midnight, with your ticket getting you into the park from 4pm.
Universal Orlando: Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights
Be prepared to be blown away by the most terrifying night of your life at Universal Studios Florida. No expense is spared at this annual event to create incredibly realistic sets, build chilling haunted houses and include professional scare actors intent on ruining your night.

Busch Gardens: Howl O Scream
Another blood-curdling one for the thrill-seekers among you, Busch Gardens’ Howl O Scream is not for the faint hearted. Although ever so slightly tamer than Halloween Horror Nights at Universal, this is still one of the most terrifying Halloween nights in Orlando – prepare to be chased, jumped out on and horrified by the incredible outfits and sets put together by a team of spooksperts.

Unearthed: Scarlett’s Revenge
Zombie Containment Unit 15: Moving Targets
Deadfall: Thirst for Blood

This event takes place during regular park hours and is free with park admission. SeaWorld’s Spooktacular is offered on October 3-4, 10-11, 17-18, 24-25, and 31.
SeaWorld’s Spooktacular is the perfect event for little ones as it’s all very light-hearted in its spookiness – nothing like Halloween Horror Nights at neighbouring Universal Studios! It’s bright and colourful and stuffed with sweeties. There’s plenty of ‘spooky’ colourful characters to meet, as well as live shows and Penelope’s Party Zone for crafty fun, dancing and games.
On top of this, The Count, Elmo, Abby, and their Sesame Street friends perform Countdown to Halloween in the Seaport Theater, and, for an extra fee, guests can attend the Spooktacular Brunch, a Halloween-inspired version of Dine with Shamu.
