Halloween tends to be a big deal here in the United States. Kids dress up in costumes, adults have parties, and many people try for a good scare. When it comes to celebrating Halloween at Walt Disney World and Disneyland, the scares are turned down and the cute is turned up. That doesn’t mean that there’s no Halloween in the other Disney Parks across the planet. Here’s some information from Disney Parks Blog. All photos are courtesy the site.
