Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is an event that takes place every year at Walt Disney World. Unfortunately, the 2020 Halloween party was canceled due to the current ongoing pandemic, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still bring the Halloween spirit into your own home! We recently wrote an article on how to bring the popular Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party right to you, which you can check out here.

We also have plenty of pumpkin-inspired recipes that you can follow including pumpkin soup and pumpkin twists. Be sure to check them out!

And our personal favorite, these copycat Halloween cinnamon rolls, which you can find the recipe for here.
