Magic Kingdom Fall Decorations Have Arrived!

Magic Kingdom Fall Decorations Have Arrived! 

When I arrived the Magic Kingdom on Tuesday, I was both surprised and excited to see that the Magic Kingdom Fall Decorations were already up .

I love this time of year and always look forward to things like seeing fall colors in the decor, especially the yellow and orange buntings used as accents along the Main Street Train Station, the pumpkins carved to match the stores that they are near.

The Magic Kingdom Fall Decorations most importantly mean that Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, MNSSHP, is just around the corner. This year the first Halloween Party is on Tuesday, September 11, and I seriously can’t wait to go.

Each year this special event takes place in the Magic Kingdom on select nights in September and October, even running until the beginning of November. It is my favorite special event of the entire year, so I cannot wait to go to MNSSHP in the next few weeks. I hope you are able to go sometime to experience this great party! We will be talking a lot more about the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party very soon!

I also love looking at the Halloween Trading Pins and the Halloween Merchandise that can be found all over Walt Disney World! I am a big fan of holiday merchandise, and this year’s selection definitely doesn’t disappoint. I love all of the nods to the Haunted Mansion and that the characters really capture the spookier side of Halloween.

Finding the Magic Kingdom Fall Decorations was a great way to begin my day, and a great start to a really fun time of year at Walt Disney World! I know that there will be additions to the Magic Kingdom Fall Decorations, so make sure that you follow us on twitter for all the latest pictures and news!

Fall In Celebration…I Love My Town!!!

We moved to Celebration a little less than a year ago, so this is our first Halloween here and I am really excited about being here!!!

The first thing we got to experience was Oktoberfest. The original dates of Oktoberfest were rained out, so they gave it another shot and it was wonderful!

Living so close to downtown is a blessing and a curse during these events, because while it is hard for visiting friends to find parking near the house it is also a huge convenience to be able to walk down to the fun!

There are tons of concerts and activities during this two day event, however the highlight for Zoe was the leaves falling! Leaves fall at 7, 8, & 9 pm and you get cute little bags from the downtown merchants to catch them. It was a hoot to watch the kids (both big and small) scramble to catch these leaves!!!

This was a super busy area!!!
Everyone was having a blast decorating their pumpkin!
When it got close to the first falling of the leaves, everyone started to make their way downtown.
THEY'RE FALLING!!!
This is a VERY happy Zoe!!!

The Leaves!!!
The sky as we were walking home. So pretty!!!

Another highlight of Fall in Celebration is the Annual Pumpkin Patch at the Community Presbyterian Church in Celebration (511 Celebration Avenue), where you can purchase a pumpkin and take some great pictures to help a great cause. 100% of your pumpkin purchases benefit Help Now of Osceola, Inc, a non-profit organization that helps provide shelter and empowers survivors of domestic and sexual violence.

It is a great Pumpkin Patch!!!

They have these great pictures spots for everyone to enjoy!!!

I love these guys!!!
I couldn't resist taking a picture of this!!!
Heck Yeah we were!!!! Thanks Emily for letting me know about these guys!!!

And right around the corner from the pumpkin patch is the pirate house! This family really knows how to do it up for Halloween!!! Every year they transform their house into a pirate ship…Enter if ye dare…

Umm...I think we've been hit...

So of course, we had to get in the act!!! And with the help of some amazing friends (Thank you Tom, Emily, Todd, Cheryl, Dan, and Shalon!!!!) this weekend we carved pumpkins and started to decorate around the house for the upcoming swarm of Trick-Or-Treaters!!! I am hoping for more treats than tricks…

This bad boy was HEAVY!!!!

Todd and Tom roasted the pumpkin seeds for us to snack on!

After Halloween things calm down to celebrate Founders Day in Celebration on November 11th, which I am really looking forward to attending!!!

And then before you know it is Thanksgiving and the snow begins to fall…but more about that later! 🙂 I want to enjoy my first fall here as long as I can!!!
