While trick-or-treating is not offered, there are many other ways to enjoy the spooktacular Halloween season at Disney Springs!
Costumes: You can always find fabulous costumes at Disney Springs for kids of all ages. From superheroes to villains and pirates to princesses, you’ll find something for everyone at World of Disney, Super Hero Headquarters, and Star Wars Galactic Outpost, but be sure to shop early!
Also, take a look at 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.
In case you missed it, The Dress Shop at Cherry Tree Lane inside Marketplace Co-Op is back open with plenty of beautiful dress options 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: There will be four Halloween-themed backdrops 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.

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.
