An Orlando HalloweenFriday, October 31, 2014
Scrambling to find something to do in Orlando for Halloween? There are tons of spooky events and trick-or-treat happenings on this frightful weekend; here is a list of some of our favorites:
Halloween Horror Nights, at Universal Orlando Florida, is likely the scariest place to be on Halloween night. Referred to as the “Ultimate Halloween Experience” and awarded the “Best Halloween Event” by Golden Ticket, this fearsome affair is sure to bring terror to anyone who steps foot in the door. The doors open Halloween night at 6:30 p.m. and won’t be closing until 1 a.m. This terrifying occasion is not recommended for the faint of heart, so make sure to prepare yourself for this all night event which includes horrifying haunted houses, street screams, and spectacular shows. For more on the attractions that will be offered at HHN 24, be sure to take a look at their Event Overview page.
Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is open for family fun on Halloween night. Get your little ghouls and goblins in their favorite costume for a night of trick-or-treating with Disney characters and villains. The doors for this ghastly occasion open at 7 p.m. and will be closing at midnight, which leaves plenty of time for all of the spooktacular parades, shows, and attractions planned. Helpful tip: start your night of fun in the back of the park then make your way to the front. You will experience less crowds and lines by changing up the way you explore Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom.
Boo ‘N Brew is a fall beer festival happening near University of Central Florida at the Waterford Lakes Town Center. From 5 p.m.-9 p.m. children 12 and under are invited to trick-or-treat around the many stores throughout the town center. There will also be kid’s entertainment throughout the event including The Trixie Chick Face Painting and Bounce Houses courtesy of Spacewalk Orlando. For the adults 21 and over, there will be beer and food sampling along with local area business displays. Price of admission opens the doors to unlimited samples of craft beers and seasonal brews.
If you are looking for a place to go trick-or-treating for free (other than a local neighborhood), there are a couple of family-friendly events going on in Orlando, like Celebrate Halloween at the Fashion Square Mall and Halloweenfest in Downtown Winter Garden.
