Just a few weeks ago, Disney announced that new fall offerings at Disney World will be starting on September 15th, and thanks to Disney Parks Blog we now know a bit more about what we can expect to see at the parks for the autumn season! Several new experiences will be coming to Magic Kingdom in lieu of Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party this year – including Disney’s announcement that adults can wear costumes during regular park hours for the first time ever – and a Halloween themed character dining experience will be coming to Hollywood Studios a little later this month.
From September 15th through October 31st, the very popular daily character cavalcades will now feature a Halloween theme with characters in costume, much like they usually are for the Boo-to-You Halloween Parade. There will also be special cavalcades taking place on select days that feature Disney villains, which sounds similar to what guests might normally see during Villains After Hours.
The Dapper Dans will also be returning to Magic Kingdom starting September 20th. Like the cavalcades during this time, their performance will be Halloween themed, just as it is every year at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.
Over at Hollywood Studios, Minnie’s Halloween Dine will take place at Hollywood & Vine. This offering will begin September 25th and should be very similar to what we can expect to see at this restaurant during Christmastime (aside from the theming). With very few character dining experiences available during Walt Disney World’s initial reopening phase, this will be a great opportunity to see some of our favorite Disney pals!
There’s no word yet on whether the Halloween ride overlays will be returning this year, but we will update our site if any more details about the new fall offerings at Disney World are announced!
