Polka Dots and Pixie Dust

Spending Halloween at Walt Disney World is always a good idea. Unlike the later part of the holiday season, you don't have so many crowds, you still have decent weather and frankly, it's when the things that are MOST FUN finally happen. While we love all of Disney's festivals and parties year-round, there's nothing that quite compares to the outdoor kitchens at the Food and Wine Festival, the Halloween events, and the fall-themed treats all over the Disney Parks. Here's everything you can do for Halloween at Walt Disney World. 

Everything you Can do in the Fall at Walt Disney World

We write a lot about fall at Walt Disney World simply because we think it's absolutely the most magical time of year! And it's our favorite season. Hopefully, this will help you take a quick look at all there is to offer and then choose what you think you'll definitely want to make time for on your next trip!

Main Street Trolley Show at Magic Kingdom- Autumn Overlay

Cost: FREE with admission

The Main Street Trolley singers get a magical fall overlay to their usual dance and song with fall-themed songs, costumes, and decorations for the trolley. This is a free show that pops up on Main Street USA in Magic Kingdom every day. Check out the Main Street Trolley page for the details and add this to your plans. It's totally worth it, cool to see, and a nice more up-close treat than the larger-than-life castle shows.

Epcot's International Food and Wine Festival

Cost: FREE with admission

Epcot's Food and Wine festival combines outdoor kitchens with cultural cuisine, foodie experiences, shows, and kid-friendly activities like Remy's Hide and Squeak scavenger hunt. This festival is best when you visit during the day, Monday-Thursday. Absolutely one of our favorite experiences for the family that cooks together. If you've never been to this event, check out our Food and Wine Festival Tips and if you're traveling with kids there's a whole slew of things you should know to make sure they have a great time with all the kid-specific perks of this event. You can also see the Eat to the Beat Concert Series, and take part in classes and presentations on food! Perfect for the family that cooks together.
