    Hi there, we are planning on visiting WDW for Halloween and I was wondering, are the cabins decorated for Halloween? I was thinking, if they are it might be worth a walk through with the kids.

    Hi there, Robert!

    Thank you for stopping back by planDisney. An autumn vacation at Walt Disney World Resort is sure to be a (trick-or) treat! By then, the weather will have turned the corner from the hot summer months, and the seasonal decorations that adorn Magic Kingdom Park this time of year are always boo-tiful. Since EPCOT, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park have not historically displayed Halloween decorations, if your family is hoping for an extra helping of spooky spirit, The Cabins and Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground are definitely worth a stop.

    The Cabins and Campsites are known for their elaborate holiday decorations, and Halloween is no exception. You can typically expect to find various holiday themed inflatables and even homages to iconic Disney attractions throughout the Campground. Because the decorations are provided by Guests, they vary each holiday season and are not guaranteed by Walt Disney World Resort, but with multiple contests and parades of golf carts and pets available to Guests of the Resort, the tradition continues to be popular year after year. I did a bit of research and discovered that due to the increasing popularity of the decorations and celebrations in recent years, Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground has restricted access to resort Guests and those with advance dining reservations on Halloween and the dates surrounding it. While I have never personally experienced it, my planDisney pal Alison raves about Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue, the dinner show offered at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. A Halloween reservation here would provide an excellent (and fun-filled) way to ensure your family is able to enjoy the decorations. 

    Since your magical vacation will be taking place during October, I hope you will purchase tickets to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party to celebrate the spooky season. My husband and I loved dressing up in costume and enjoying the special holiday treats and overlays on our favorite Magic Kingdom attractions. Just like my favorite seasonal popcorn bucket, details for the event are still currently under wraps, but keep an eye on Disney Parks Blog, especially as the Halfway to Halloween celebration kicks off, for more details on Walt Disney World's upcoming Halloween celebrations.

    I hope this was helpful, Robert. Don't hesitate to stop back by with any additional questions that may arise before your magical vacation begins. Just like in Haunted Mansion, there's always room for one more. 

    Cheers to 2024,
