You should head to Walt Disney World or Disneyland in the fall. Why? This guide to Halloween at the Disney parks reveals all! No tricks, just treats! It's not-so-scary and extra magical!

Planning tip: if you’ve never made it to Disneyland and have a love of Jack & Sally: mid-September to early January is when you want to visit!

If you’re like me, you might be making plans to celebrate the season in style with a visit to a Disney Park. If you go east to Walt Disney World or west to Disneyland, you’ll be in for a spooktacular treat. Especially if you hit up one of the special ticketed Halloween parties offered at each park.
