Hey, loves! I've been so lucky to have taken my family to so many different Disney Parks since the kids were born. But I'd never been during the fall, so I can finally share all the details! Was Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween worth it? Absolutely yes! We planned a trip with Small World Vacations to spend spooky season in the parks, and it was an experience we'll never forget. Here are all the details!
We stayed at the Polynesian Village Resort, which is my absolute favorite! It has all the Hawaii vibes, plus the best food and access to the monorail. We did the walkup waitlist and got right in at Ohana for breakfast! I saved all of my Disney stories to a highlight, so if you'd like to relive it all with me and see a Poly Moana room tour, come on over to @bitsofbri!
Small World Vacations had us set up with the sweetest welcome gift in our room. And here's a little Disney hack for you - use Prime delivery to get snacks, fruit, waters, and milk delivered to your room! Bell services will deliver to your room, and you can bring it all in the parks, which saves money.
We spent our second day in Magic Kingdom, and had breakfast at Cinderella’s Royal Table. Our reservations were made well ahead, and I already new exactly what to get. If you're headed to Cindy's Table, get the steak and eggs or the caramel apple stuffed french toast!
Then it was off to the Little Mermaid, Small World, Thunder Mountain, Splash Mountain, and a pit stop for Dole Whip!
Somehow, we managed to squeeze in some pool time before changing into our costumes for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween. Our three girls and one Landon were the perfect recipe for our Hocus Pocus costumes. I managed to put together my entire costume on Amazon!
I'm glad we did some relaxing by the pool before the festivities kicked off because we needed every last drop of energy we could get for the party and parade.
There’s just so much that makes visiting this time of year special, but if you were thinking of coming to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween next year, here's what you need to know:
🎃 we got to dress up in full costume, which the kids went crazy for!
👻 the Boo To You Parade was filled with new songs and dances that were just spooky enough!
🎆 the fireworks show was absolutely fantastic!
✨ since it was a special event, the lines were so much shorter than normal. We got on rides really easily!
Day 3 was an Epcot Day! My favorite ride ever is the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, and we managed to get on back-to-back!
Then it was hot chocolates at La Crêperie de Paris, then Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, Test Track, Frozen Ever After, and fireworks! Go right in front of the ball for the best viewing spot in Epcot!
Day four was our last day - Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, Oga’s Cantina, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, Slinky Dog Dash, Hollywood Brown Derby, and pumpkin pie dole whip! We really packed everything we could into that last day!
Whenever we do a Disney trip, I always get a ton of DMs about where I shop for our clothes. I made a whole blog post about this to help you guys out if you're planning family outfits, and I linked a few of my favorite Etsy shops and small businesses that I use for the kids' clothes!
If you caught our "We're at Disney World" reel, the kids had the cutest travel outfits that are currently on sale from Gap!
These outfits were actually purchased for a previous Disney trip, so I have them for all three kids. But they're still available here!
How was it with no stroller with the kids? I feel like we might need them with a 4 and 6 yo.
Do I need to use a travel agent to book a Disney trip?

I need Disney outfit ideas! Help! Comfy, but cute.
Rope drop, stay late for fireworks, or both?
