Top Halloween Events in Orlando for Kids: Things To Do at the Theme Parks and Beyond

Halloween is approaching and festivities are gearing up around Central Florida. 

While some of the larger Halloween events have been canceled this year—notably, Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party and Universal's Halloween Horror Nights—there are still several opportunities to enjoy some spooky (and not-so-spooky) Halloween fun for all ages.  Theme parks, malls, and other organizations are hosting alternatives to door-to-door trick-or-treating, and adding to the fun with costume competitions, live music and games.  Families can also enjoy contactless fun at several drive-thru Halloween events.

Read on for all the details, and be sure to sign up for Mommy Poppins' FREE Orlando newsletter for more fun events delivered straight to your inbox.  For more fall fun, plan a trip to a local corn maze or visit a new playground.
