    We're planning our first Disney World trip in late October with our 4 y/o. Will the experience be "Halloween-themed" that time of the year? I know there will be Halloween events but didn't want the whole experience to be centered on that.

    Hi there, Marissa! Greetings from everyone here at planDisney! We appreciate you taking the time to reach out and allowing us to help you plan your vacation to Walt Disney World Resort! 

    One of my personal favorite times to visit Walt Disney World Resort is during the Autumn season! The weather is beginning to cool down and there are so many fun, seasonal offerings available for Guests to experience! 

    From my personal experience, I would not say that every part of our vacations is centered around Halloween during that time of the year! As you’ve mentioned, there are seasonal events that celebrate the Halloween season but these are typically found only in the Magic Kingdom and Disney Springs. So, you will find various Fall-themed decorations throughout both of these destinations. Other theme parks and destinations may have light theming but Magic Kingdom and Disney Springs historically have the most! 

    If you are interested in participating in some seasonal events, I highly recommend checking out the Disney After Hours Boo Bash! This all-new event will take place in the Magic Kingdom on select nights between August 10th and October 31st. This event begins at either 9:00 pm or 9:30 pm and will last three hours. Guests can look forward to some frightfully fun entertainment, delicious, event-exclusive treats, and trick-or-treating across the theme park. There will also be Halloween-themed cavalcades and various Disney Character sightings throughout the night! 

    Tickets go on sale for Disney After Hours Boo Bash beginning June 15th for all Guests and are currently on sale for Guests staying at select Disney Resort hotels! So be sure to mark your calendar! 

    I hope you have a magical time visiting Walt Disney World Resort later this year! Be sure to let us know if we can provide any additional planning assistance as well!
