Everything You Can Do for Halloween in Disney World Without Going to BOO Bash

Halloween will be here before you know it, and many of us will want to spend it at Disney World, maybe attending the After Hours Boo Bash.

But for those who are unable to attend, how are we going to celebrate Halloween with a Disney twist?

We’ve put a few ideas together to help you out. Because you can still have a blast on Halloween (in the World and the world) without going to After Hours Boo Bash!

Stay Home and Watch Hallowscreams

Okay, so this is the most obvious choice. You can stay home (or at your Disney World Resort) and have a Disney-filled Halloween by watching all the great Hallowscreams content on Disney+. Whether that means you re-watch some old favorites like Hocus Pocus and Halloweentown or spend some time with the new Muppets Haunted Mansion special, you’ll feel the Halloween spirit all night long.


Don’t have Disney+ yet? Well, there are some great promotions you can take advantage of to save money on your subscription!

Here’s What to Stream This Halloween on Disney+

Ride The Haunted Mansion

If you’re onsite at Disney World and want quickly get in a spooky mood quickly, all you have to do is visit Haunted Mansion at Magic Kingdom! Here you’ll attend a swinging soiree full of happy haunts! Nothing says Halloween like a haunted house, right?

It’s always Halloween here!

And who knows? Maybe a ghost will follow you home to keep the Halloween festivities going!

Turn Your Home into Disney’s Haunted Mansion (Yes, REALLY!)

Ride The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror

Likewise, if you’re at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on Halloween, you can hop on the most haunted elevator in the world’s creepiest hotel and take a plunge on the Tower of Terror.

How about a stay in this creepy old hotel?

And be sure to acknowledge Caesar the dummy when you see him — otherwise, he might cause some mischief in your day!

Eat at Minnie’s Halloween Dine

While you’re at Hollywood Studios, you could drop in and have a meal at Minnie’s Halloween Dine at Hollywood & Vine. It’s a chance to see characters in their Halloween costumes in a restaurant all done up for the holiday!


The food is currently being served family-style (in our experience, it’s a big improvement over the old buffet!). The price is  $55 per adult and $36 per child (ages 3-9 years old), plus tax and gratuity.

Decorate Your Disney World Hotel Room

How about celebrating Halloween at your Disney World resort? You could bring some fun decorations along with you on your trip and decorate your room as spooky as you would like!

Or you could order up some decorations and gift baskets from Disney Floral & Gifts to surprise the family with. You can get Disney Halloween balloons, floral gifts, boxes with Halloween gifts, and more!

So you can’t exactly wear a Halloween costume to the parks on Halloween unless you’re going to the After Hours Boo Bash, but you can Disneybound your favorite Disney character. If you’re not familiar with Disneybounding, it’s basically about wearing an outfit that isn’t a costume — normal clothes designed to represent a character.

So you would pick out clothes and accessories in colors and designs that represent a character and wear them on Halloween!

Go On A Halloween-Themed Shopping Spree

There is a TON of fun Halloween merchandise in all four theme parks at Disney World (as well as in resort shops and at Disney Springs), so how about going on a Halloween-themed shopping spree? You don’t have to buy everything, but you could make a game of seeing just how many Halloween items you can find!

Of course, if it’s in your budget, allow yourself to get some fun Disney Halloween goodies, which you can always bring back out next Halloween!

Eat Halloween Snacks

Another thing you can do is eat as many Halloween snacks you can find throughout Disney World. And although some of these snacks are exclusive to the After Hours Boo Bash, you’ll find many that aren’t! There’s a Haunted Mansion Cake, Halloween-themed Caramel Apples, Spooky Cookies, and more!

So wear your stretchy pants and get ready to eat your way through the parks on Halloween. Who needs candy when you’ve got Disney snacks?

Check Out Resort Activities

Believe it or not, a lot of Disney World’s resorts get in on the Halloween fun. Many put up decorations and offer some kind of fun activities on Halloween night. But one resort, Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground, goes all out for the evening!

It’s a long-held tradition at Fort Wilderness for guests to go all out and decorate their campsites. And many even give out candy to trick or treaters.  And don’t miss Disney’s Halloween Golf Cart Parade.

Eat and Drink Your Way Around The World

And if you don’t mind participating in an activity that isn’t so Halloween, but still a lot of fun, don’t forget that the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival is still going on! You could just hop on over to World Showcase and celebrate the day by eating and drinking your way around the world!

EPCOT Food and Wine Festival

You won’t find any Halloween decorations at EPCOT, but when you’ve got some of the best food and drinks at Disney World, does that really matter? And you could even participate in the Remy Scavenger Hunt!

Check Out the Live Entertainment at the 2021 EPCOT Food and Wine Festival!

So if you don’t have a ticket for After Hours Boo Bash on Halloween, don’t worry — there’s still PLENTY to do for Halloween all around Disney World (and in the real world).
