Note: One of the most common questions asked by those who've recently moved to or are visiting Orlando is, "What day and times does trick-or-treating take place for Halloween in Orlando?" Trick-or-treating near Orlando always takes place on Halloween night (even on a school night), and while there are no formal start and end times, popular hours are 5:30-9pm. As a general rule, if front porch lights are on, trick-or-treaters are welcome.

Best Neighborhoods to Trick-or-Treat in Orlando

Baldwin Park

Just five miles east of downtown Orlando and ranked as one of the top 20 neighborhoods in the country for trick or treating in 2016, Baldwin Park does not disappoint. Each year the neighborhood sees a steady increase in trick-or-treaters. The most popular street in Baldwin Park is New Broad Street—most houses are decorated and include fog machines, light displays, and more. The houses are set close to the sidewalk, and most residents set up on their front porch to hand out candy (many of them in costume themselves).

This town is appropriately named for its celebration of all holidays, and Halloween is no exception. There are houses that go all-out with elaborate ghoulish décor and lights. The houses are close together and the neighborhood contains miles of sidewalks. If visiting Celebration this Halloween, be sure to check out the amazing Halloween Lights Display on Jeater Bend. The area gets very busy on Halloween so parking may be difficult. Others who have gone in past years recommend arriving around 4:30.
