Disney gearing up for Halloween!

Disney’s Halloween costumes are all the craze right now on Instagram. Recently, Disney PhotoPass took to the social media platform and shared their all-time favorite costumes that they captured in Magic Kingdom Park including Esmeralda, Lumiere, and the cast of Onward. They wrote:

We’re #HalfwaytoHalloween! ? We’re getting into the spirit by sharing some of our favorite costumes captured by #DisneyPhotoPass photographers during the Halloween season last year! ?? Check out the link in our bio for tricks, treats and surprises from Disney Parks, Experiences and Products!

Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley lent his face to artist William Reynolds (better known as @holareynolds on Instagram) as he transformed Riddley into our evil friend Yzma from Disney’s The Emperor’s New GrooveBrilliant plans are in the works for Halfway to Halloween as Riddley shares:

It’s time to pull the lever!

And celebrate Halloween with your dear friend Yzma ?

/// ? ? ?

Not THAT lever…
(Why do we still not have this lever situation resolved?!)

Oh well, #halfwaytohalloween will just have to do.

Happy Halfway to Halloween. There are brilliant, brilliant, brilliant plans I tell you! Genius I say what @disneyparksblog is doing to celebrate the favorite time of year for dear Empress Yzma.

Enjoy and get ready ?



Kudos to @holareynolds for your creativity with the brush ✨

Disney fans share Halloween costume ideas

As I was posting my favorite picture at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party today and excited to announce that I will be booking my Walt Disney World vacation to celebrate this new Disney Halloween event, I was shocked to see how many Disney fans also hashtagged #HalfwaytoHalloween and were excited to share their previous Halloween looks.

Here is my family ready to Oogie boogie down Halloweentown with Jack Skellington and Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas:

Although #mnsshp will not be back in Magic Kingdom this year, the Pattersons are super excited to celebrate #halfwaytohalloween and hopefully celebrate Disney After Hours BOO BASH that will debut this August!! Who’s excited to dress up!!

And Inside the Magic’s senior editor, Kelly C., also posted to Instagram that she is more than ready to celebrate Disney After Hours BOO BASH in August. We think she looks adorable as Rapunzel next to her fiancé who is pulling off the dashing Flynn Rider:

We can’t get enough of this Maleficent costume from Rjay Taylor (@_the_adventurous_rjay). The lighting next to the headless horseman in Disney California Adventure is frightening and a perfect example for future costumes coming to Walt Disney World this year.

Felt evil …. might delete later?

I can’t wait to be in @waltdisneyworld for spooky season, and to get into all sorts of spooky trouble at the after hours event!! Stay tuned to @disneyparksblog for all the Spooky Magic and previews that are ahead.

( Yes I am posting this EPIC PICTURE AGAIN BEcause it’s too epic not to )

We look forward to seeing many more Halloween costume ideas and cannot wait to see what Disney has planned for Halloween in the next coming months!
