Halfway to Halloween debuted last week, and it got me all excited about the spooky season ahead. I love watching all the news roll in of events and snacks, not to mention my favorite merch, but it took me a moment to calm myself down when I remembered that it was still only April. Halfway to Halloween makes it sound as though the festive event is just around the corner, though really, we are a good six months away from the one-day calendar event, and the celebration seems to start earlier and earlier every year. You might have seen me question how long is too long to celebrate the holidays at Disney before. Well, now I am more specifically wondering exactly when we would all like to see the Halloween decorations go up in the parks.

Usually, we will see Halloween theming start to appear in early August, many months ahead of the October 31st date of All Hallow’s Eve. However, for many people, this arrival always seems too early or too late for their liking. What would it be if you had to choose a specific date for Halloween decorations to arrive at the Disney Parks?
