Trick or treating isn’t the only thing that I look forward to on the day of Halloween; it’s also when many of the Disney animals get to enjoy a pumpkin (or Jack ‘o’ Lantern) to mark the occasion. You might remember how much I loved the photos from last year when animals from all over Disney’s Animal Kingdom were enjoying their seasonal treats; if you missed them, be sure to have a look; they were adorable! This year, the first smile of my Halloween day was from the Giant Galapagos Tortoises that were celebrating National Pumpkin Day over the weekend and chowing down on their own spooky pumpkins! Of course, I am here to share this little pixie-dusted moment with you. See them enjoy their treat in the Disney Parks clip below!

But that’s not all. Here are more photos of the Walt Disney World animals enjoying their favorite Fall treat this year. Enjoy, and Happy Halloween!
