Fall Fun for All Ages at Walt Disney World Guide

Ages 2-5: Fun for Little Ones

If you have kids aged 2 to 5, you should check out Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground. The best part is you can enjoy the Halloween decorations even without a parking ticket. The whole place is decked out with pumpkins, lights, and fun decorations. They start putting these up in September, and it looks the best in October.

Young kids can explore and play here, and there’s plenty of space for strollers. Just remember, if you don’t stay overnight at Fort Wilderness, you’ll need to make a reservation for dining or activities. You can get there by bus, boat, or ride-share.

Ages 2-5: Dinner with Minnie

Another fun thing for little ones is having dinner with Minnie at Hollywood & Vine. Minnie and her friends wear Halloween costumes and serve tasty buffet-style meals. The best part is that the characters come to your table during the meal. Make sure to book reservations, which are really important, and you can do it online, through the app, or by calling Disney.

Ages 6-10: Fun Activities

For kids aged 6 to 10, you can join Remy’s Ratatouille Hide & Squeak Scavenger Hunt at Epcot during the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival. You get to look for figurines of Chef Remy hidden on top of food booths. Kids get a prize when they find all the Remys. In October, there’s also Pluto’s Pumpkin Pursuit, a similar game with Disney character-themed pumpkins. You can find game boards, stickers, and prizes at different spots in Epcot.

Preteens: Halloween Party

If you have preteens, they’ll love Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom on certain nights from 7 p.m. to midnight. It has Mickey’s Boo-To-You Halloween Parade, ‘Hocus Pocus’ Villain Spelltacular show, character meet and greets with costumes, and lots of candy.

One cool thing is that you can wear Halloween costumes, and there are shorter lines for Magic Kingdom rides during the party. There’s even Space Mountain in complete darkness. While the kids enjoy the party, parents can have fun at Disney Springs during Fall Into Magic with entertainment, shopping, and dining.

Teens: Thrilling Experiences

Teenagers can have a blast exploring Disney World’s Halloween and fall-themed treats. There are plenty of cool spots for photos with Halloween sweets and decorations. Thrill-seekers will love rides like the Haunted Mansion, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, TRON Lightcycle/Run, DINOSAUR, and Expedition Everest. You can skip regular lines with Genie+.

Adults: Foodie Paradise

For grown-ups, Epcot’s International Food and Wine Festival is a food lover’s dream. It runs from summer to mid-November and offers delicious small bites and drinks from around the world. Spend a day at Epcot trying these tasty treats and check out the food booth menus you like the most.

You can also book a Dining Package for guaranteed seating at Eat to the Beat Concert Series. And if you’re into running, try Disney World’s half-marathon events like the Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon. You can dress up, and meet rare Disney characters on the course, but remember that the races start early (around 5 a.m.).

In Conclusion

Walt Disney World in the fall is a magical place for families. Whether you have little kids, older kids, or are a grown-up looking for fun, there’s something for everyone. From Halloween decorations to character dining, thrilling rides, and delicious food, you’ll create wonderful memories at Disney during this special season. So, pack your bags and get ready for a fantastic journey filled with happiness, joy, and enchantment in the heart of the Magic Kingdom.
