Trick-or-Treating - 2017 

Guests are given Trick or Treat Bags to be used at the candy stations found throughout the Magic Kingdom. Locations are indicated on the map. Some cast members will give more than others, but there's no limit to how many times you can go back to the same location for more.

Trick or Treat Stations


Food Allergy Info:

Guests with food allergies can get a special teal treat bag that will designate them as having an allergy (teal is the color that represents food allergy awareness). These bags can be picked up at any of the trick-or-treat locations as well as at the allergy-friendly centers located at Heritage House and Town Square.

When you trick-or-treat with your teal bag, Cast Members will give you a teal token at each treat station. Later on, you can redeem your teal tokens at the allergy-friendly centers to receive your special treats!


City Hall no longer passes out allergy-friendly candy as they have done in the past.

Costume Guidelines - 2017
Halloween at Disney Springs


Throughout October, guests will find seasonal decorations, entertainment, and treats around Disney Springs, as well as fall menu items in select restaurants.

While trick-or-treating is not offered, there are many other ways to enjoy the spooktacular Halloween season at Disney Springs!

Costumes: From superheroes to villains and pirates to princesses, you can always find a costume for everyone at World of Disney, Super Hero Headquarters, and Star Wars Galactic Outpost, but be sure to shop early!

If costumes are not your thing, check out the thread entitled, "Do you DisneyBound?" on our Theme Parks Attractions and Strategies forum at DISboards.com and research some of the Disneybound designs our posters have shared. These fun looks are a great way to add your own style with Disney Character-inspired accessories or even by just choosing specific colors.

The Dress Shop at Cherry Tree Lane inside Marketplace Co-Op has plenty of beautiful dresses including “Pirates,” “Cinderella,” Minnie Mouse,” and “Haunted Mansion” options that are cuter than ever! Take a look at this story for photos of some of the dresses.

Fall-Themed Photo Backdrops:
 Four Halloween-themed backdrops are located throughout Disney Springs. The huge “Mickey Mouse” pumpkin is iconic, but check out the new “Shopped ‘Til I Dropped” background! PhotoPass photographers will also be wandering around with fun fall-themed props, so be on the lookout for those.

Special Entertainment:
 Halloween music will linger throughout the Disney Springs promenade and continue with a nightly family-friendly DJ Dance Party near Once Upon a Toy. Later this month, spirited stilt walkers will have daily appearances from October 20-31st.

Seasonal Treats:
 Check out this list of some of the treats you can look forward to at Disney Springs:

Halloween Shopping: This month, The Haunted Mansion takes center stage at Centerpiece at Marketplace Co-Op. Check out this gorgeous dining room display that features Haunted Mansion-inspired napkins, plates, and glassware.

Closeby at Disney’s Days of Christmas, guests can pick out a spooky ornament from The Haunted Mansion or Nightmare Before Christmas then have it personalized.

If you are looking for a new Halloween-themed piece of art, stop by the Art of Disney where you'll find seasonal pieces available all month. Also, check out the “Terribly Odd” collection at Pop Gallery – a special Halloween release with the artist will take place 5-9pm on Tuesday, October 31st.

Face Painting and Makeovers: You can even get your face painted by an 'Enjoy Your Face' painting expert! They can do a subtle or an over-the-top makeover and everything in-between; just stop by their shop in the Marketplace. Theatrical Halloween looks are available at MAC Cosmetics for $60 and include a free mascara of your choice throughout the month of October.
