Happy Halloween! I’d normally spend every daylight hour of October 31 putting out all my decorations, new and old, to prepare my house for trick-or-treaters. But this rainy Central Florida day is preventing me, for the moment, from bringing out the tricks or treats quite yet. There will be Halloween, rain or shine, but the decorations (particularly electronic ones) will have to wait until the skies stop falling.
So in the meantime, I thought I’d share an assortment of my favorite photo highlights from the past few weeks of Halloween events I’ve experienced around Orlando. I’ve uploaded many of these photos before to our galleries, but there are some new ones I haven’t had a chance to upload until now. Events featured here include Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando, Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, Spooky Empire’s Ultimate Horror Weekend on International Drive, and the Room For One More event celebrating the 40th anniversary of Disney’s Haunted Mansion.
Please enjoy this frightful sights and check back later to see what spirits have gathered around my house, once the rain subsides.
