|Spooky entrance to the Magic Kingdom|
One of the first things that I noticed upon my arrival to the Magic Kingdom were the haunting sound effects and the ethereal lighting, not to mention the wonderful pumpkin statues. This theming is carried on right down Main Street, after that there are touches of Autumn (Fall) most everywhere….
|Wonderful Jack o’lantern theming.|
Be sure to pick up a special party park guide map which contains all the info you’ll need for your evenings entertainment; like the Boo To You Parade & HalloWishes firework display times, character dance parties and most importantly the for kids (both big & small), a guide to where all the Trick or Treating stations are!

Disney totally bewitch Main Street USA; it seemingly crawls with revellers all night long……

|The ghoulish Cast Members of The Haunted Mansion.|
During the party is a brilliant time to find lots of seldom seen characters, so if you get lucky you could snap a picture with Snow White & all Seven Dwarves, Tarzan, Jane & Terk or Mickey & Minnie in their Halloween Costumes! All the cast members get into the spirit of things, especially those from the Haunted Mansion who seem to be totally and utterly in character the whole time; which I found intriguing!
The same rules apply at night as for during the day, the early staking out of a good spot to watch the Boo To You Parade; you really don’t want to miss the Headless Horseman galloping down the street mounted on his ‘black as night’ steed! The same strategy goes for HalloWishes; British Diva’s top tip is to catch the parade from Frontierland and I believe the fireworks are best viewed from Main Street.
If you are lucky enough to be visiting Walt Disney World from early September to early November then I can throughly recommend that you pay the extra $$’s & experience MNSSHP on these selected dates.
