When Walt Disney World Resort announced its Halloween character plans this year following the cancelation of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, the focus was heavily on new cavalcades.

These include an all-new Disney Villains cavalcade, a Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas cavalcade, and an adorable cavalcade featuring Winnie the Pooh and friends.

The Disney Princesses, however, were not specifically mentioned in any of Disney World’s Halloween celebration announcements this year. This has sparked a great deal of online conversation, including a Reddit thread in which user @crOwndhunter asked:

We have been watching videos of the new decorations at MK and haven’t been seeing any princess cavalcade floats. We are going next week with a little girl who would love to see the princesses, but if not she would probably like the characters in their Halloween costumes.

Fortunately, the Princesses are still out and about at both Magic Kingdom and EPCOT throughout the Halloween season! Just this morning, an ITM team member spotted Rapunzel, Elena, Snow White, and Belle waving to Guests from the Magic Kingdom train station platform.

On September 15, the day fall decorations debuted at Disney World, Instagram user @mainstreetjohn had a magical sighting of Cinderella on the balcony of her newly remodeled castle!

Also on September 15, Twitter user @ThatDisneyBoi shared a photo of Merida and Angus riding through Magic Kingdom park.

Remember, at this time, all four of Walt Disney World’s theme parks are operating at limited capacity and you must have a Disney Park Pass reservation to enter Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, or Disney’s Hollywood Studios. According to the official Disney World website:

To manage attendance during this reopening period, while also helping Guests plan ahead before their arrival, we are introducing the new Disney Park Pass system. During this time, all Guests with valid admission will be required to make a reservation in advance for each park entry, using this new online tool.

To enter a park, both a park reservation AND valid admission for the same park on the same date are required for each person in your party ages 3 and up (limit one park per day).
