Only Disney can celebrate a one-day holiday for two months, so at Walt Disney World, Halloween starts in September and runs right up to (and after) October 31. But if you and your children want to take trick-or-treating to the extreme and you (the adult) wants to dress in costume at the Magic Kingdom, then Halloween season is the holiday visit time for you.
And with any Disney celebration, there is much to do. The mainstay of the season is Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, held selected nights in the Magic Kingdom (dates announced closer to summer). Inside this event there is a special parade and special fireworks (check out the videos at the end of this post). And of course the park is fully decorated for the season, and the greatest Disney villains adorn area as characters you will just love.

WHO WILL YOU BE THIS HALLOWEEN.
As a special treat, I'd like to repeat a set of videos created by a very talented young man of whom I am so envious for his talent and his history. Michael is the host of The Disney Vault. This web site has a set of wonderful videos from his trips to the “World” as well as a host of character art to download.
There are three: Mickey’s “Boo-To-You” Halloween Parade; Villains Mix and Mingle; and the Happy HalloWishes fireworks. Please enjoy, I know I did.
