Halloween lands on a Tuesday this year, which makes trick-or-treating tough for families with youngsters. Luckily, there are plenty of spooky and safe family-friendly Halloween events in Orlando happening all month long and in the days leading up to October 31 all over the Orlando area.
From September 22 to October 28 and on Sunday October 29, Old Town is being haunted every Friday and Saturday night from 6 pm to 1am. As the sun sets, enter the Orlando Halloween madness and watch fears and phobias come to life in haunted mazes or scare zones. Find out if you have the skills to survive the zombie apocalypse. And keep an eye peeking around every corner because that unsettling feeling like someone is following your every move is probably real. You're invited to enter if you dare, survive if you can.
On select nights from August 25 to November 1, the gates of Cinderella's castle will close at 7 pm for anyone who hasn't purchased admission to the Halloween event in Orlando when the Disney spirits will awaken at Magic Kingdom. There will be magical trick-or-treating through the lands, villainous entertainment, fireworks of HalloWishes, your favorite Disney characters, and more.
