Ways to do Halloween “Disney-style”

Disney Costumes

Halloween provides us all with a great opportunity each year to enter a world of make-believe and dress up like our favorite characters from books, movies and television. Disney provides a wide array of characters to transform into every Halloween.  For costume inspiration you can look to characters from Disney’s traditional animation, Pixar, Disney Channel/Disney Junior cartoons as well as the newly acquired franchises such as Star Wars and Marvel. Here are some examples of Disney inspired costumes that the Dolewhiplets have worn over the years.

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

If you are lucky enough to be in the DisneyParks throughout parts of September and all of October, Halloween is celebrated with special Halloween lighting and decorations.  There is even a special ticketed Halloween-themed party called Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP) which Disney hosts at the Magic Kingdom on various nights in September-November.  This party lasts from 7pm to midnight includes a special Halloween parade (twice per night), a special fireworks display over the castle, Halloween-themed stage shows and dance parties as well as meet and greets with characters that are only available during these parties.  There are also trick or treat stations set up throughout the park where guests can collect treats.  Costumes are encouraged during these parties for children and adults, although in Disney Parks, you really don’t need an excuse to dress up at any time throughout the year.

Carve a Disney Pumpkin

One more way to bring a little Disney into your Halloween is to carve your pumpkin with a Disney theme.  Just tape a stencil onto your pumpin and score the shaded areas with a point.  Then carve the marked areas out of the face of the pumpkin.  Drop in a tea light candle or an LED candle and watch your character come to life.
