    I see Disney World is decorated for Halloween. When are the Halloween decorations put up? We are planning a trip for next August and would like to see them.

    Boo-to-you, Nancy!

    The Halloween decorations are indeed fangtastic at this time of the year. Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is my favorite seasonal event at the Walt Disney World Resort, and the decorations are a huge part of the experience!

    The decoration schedule usually depends on the first night of Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. I think that's our best guide to think about a date for your 2020 vacation. Shall we do it?

    In 2016, the party started on September 2. In 2017, the first night happened on August 25. In 2018, Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party welcomed the first Guests on August 17, while the first night of 2019 was on August 16.

    Dates can always change, and we can't be sure about them until they're officially announced on the Disney Parks Blog. But, year after year, August is getting more and more Halloweenish. A trip on the last week of the month could be perfect to fit your ghouls!

    As more questions about this spooktacular vacation come up, Nancy, don't forget to come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We love to plan not-so-scary trips with fellow fortunate souls!

    May the magic be with you,
