    Hello there. Do you know when Magic Kingdom will be decorated for Halloween? We’re leaving on August 9th and wonder if we may just about see the Halloween decorations based on previous years dates.

    Hello Robert,

    Welcome back to planDisney and "Boo to you!" Your question came across my screen at the perfect time since Halfway to Halloween announcements were just made. We've all been waiting for these spirits to materialize for a few weeks now and I'm thrilled to finally have more information to share. Let's dive into all the spooky specifics together!

    Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween party kicks off on August 9, 2024, with a few new treats in store, so you can certainly expect to see Magic Kingdom Park decked out in frightfully festive trimmings that day. Last year, I visited a few weeks before the first party date and was pleasantly surprised to see orange banners and pumpkin accents already popping up around Main Street, U.S.A. I can't say that Magic Kingdom Park will be fully decorated before your departure as Cast Members have been known to make magic in the dead of night, but I think it's a safe bet that you'll see at least some of the eerily awesome decor around the park during your visit.

    I'd recommend keeping an eye on Disney Parks Blog for the Disney Eats: Foodie Guide for this year's event. Last year specialty snack items were available at some resorts beginning September 1, but I'll cross my fingers you'll find some ghoulish goodies to enjoy before heading home. 

    Robert, I hope this helped. If we can answer any additional questions please hurry back and send us a message from somewhere beyond. We're always ready to help guests and happy haunts have their most spellbinding visit.

    Hope your Halloween is a total scream,
