Here’s How Disney Decorates Magic Kingdom Park for Halloween
I’ve always been fascinated by how Disney transforms the Magic Kingdom literally overnight for Halloween. One day it’s normal, and the next it’s full-on Halloween!
An amazing team of cast members work non-stop throughout the year prepping and maintaining all of the decorations that we get to see and enjoy during Halloween. This includes Halloween-themed bunting, garland, and a lot of specialty crafted pumpkins – like the Cinderella Coach wreath.
Debuting last Oct. as part of the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary celebration, the wreath will again line Main Street, U.S.A., and surround Cinderella Castle for this EARidescent occasion. But you don’t have long to marvel at these magnificent coaches. Once the clock strikes midnight on Nov. 1, they’ll turn back into the traditional Mickey pumpkins we all know and love and will be stored until the fall magic returns next year.
Debbie McGowan is one of the talented decorators who helped create this piece and is excited for them to be up for the full Halloween season this year. “It was an honor to help craft the Cinderella coach wreaths just for the 50th Anniversary celebration, and I’m excited to see them return this year,” Debbie said.
Check out the video below to see all that goes into decorating the Magic Kingdom for the spookiest season of the year with a touch of 50th Anniversary celebration magic!
Now as they say, “look alive” and be sure to take in the fall decorations next time you’re at the Magic Kingdom Park. And don’t forget to join our ghost and ghouls to celebrate all things haunted during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party on select evenings through Oct. 31. Oh, and no promises that a hitchhiking ghost won’t follow you home. Happy Halloween!
