Disney World is a magical place at any time of the year, but it’s extra special around Halloween! The Central Florida amusement park goes all out to entertain guests during the Halloween season, which runs at Disney World from mid-August until Nov. 1.

Of course, because the “Happiest Place on Earth” caters to the littlest ghouls among us, the Halloween extravaganza is more cute than creepy. If you are eyeing a fall getaway to Florida, you’ll find the magic of Halloween around every corner throughout the Disney World parks and resorts. Take a look at what awaits you down in Disney World this time of year.
