Halloween is a great time to get out and celebrate in Central Florida. The weather has finally cooled to a bearable point and there are so many locations in and around Orlando that go all out for the holiday. If you’ve never ventured outside of your own neighborhood to celebrate Halloween, here are some good places around town to start.
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party
No one throws a holiday celebration quite like the Disney parks, and the Not So Scary Halloween Party is a great option for families with little ones or even older kids who aren’t brave enough to tackle Halloween Horror Nights. Some of the best-known Disney villains will make appearances to sing songs and make mischief, certain rides and attractions will be open and visitors can wear costumes and trick or treat around the park. While you don’t have to purchase a full day pass to the park to experience the celebration, you will have to purchase a ticket to the event, which runs between $75-100 depending on the day you want to go. With this ticket, you can get into the park starting at 4 PM to enjoy the party.
Halloween Party at Crane’s Roost Park
If you’re looking for somewhere family friendly to spend Halloween night, Crane’s Roost Park in Altamonte Springs holds a Halloween party appropriate for all ages. The free party starts at 5 PM and features live music, costume contests, and trick or treating. There are also, of course, plenty of places to get something to eat or grab a drink during the party. It also ends at 9 PM, which is perfect if you’re hoping to get to bed early for school the next day.
The Haunt at Old Town
Old Town, on the edge of Orlando and Kissimmee, hosts a Halloween celebration every night in October, where in addition to the usual shopping and dining, you can enjoy car decorating and costume contests, listen to live music and be surprised by a few Halloween treats. This is a great free option for those who live a little closer to Kissimmee and don’t want to go too far from home.
Halloween Horror Nights
Possibly the most well-known and most popular event in the area at Halloween time is going into its 27th year, and this year’s theme combines several of the best-known movie villains to deliver an extra terrifying experience. The only drawback of choosing this event to attend is the price tag, as you’ll have to purchase a full price admission ticket to the parks to get in, which cost between $60-80.
Halloween is just another celebration that makes Orlando and Central Florida a great place to live. There are great things to do year-round with amazing weather!
