If your kid(s) can’t get enough of Disney and you don’t mind spending a little extra money on Halloween spirit by taking the kiddo(s) to Walt Disney’s Magic Kingdom. Known as the “Happiest Haunting on Earth,” your family can take part in meeting your favorite Disney characters dressed in Halloween costumes that you wouldn’t normally see them; such as Donald and Daisy Duck dressed as a Prince and Princess. Also, explore Disney while your little one(s) gets to trick-or-treat throughout the ENTIRE park! Just as a suggestion, you might want to make the most out of your money by picking a date prior to Halloween because prices are cheaper (Local Pro Tip).
Possibly not for the ordinary family, but it’s totally worth mentioning because WHY NOT?! Take a short drive right outside of Orlando and visit the famous Spiritualist Camp known as the town of Cassadaga. Established in 1874, Cassadaga is home to a community of psychic mediums, but the town is better known for the spirits of those who never left. Take a historic tour, seek guidance from a professional medium, but regardless of what you do, be sure to visit the cemetery after-dark to sit in, what’s known as, “The Devil’s Chair.”
