3 Halloween Orlando: SeaWorld Howl-O-Scream

United Parks (the conglomerate behind SeaWorld, Busch Gardens, and more) has its own Halloween event as well. Howl-O-Scream uses a very similar format to Halloween Horror Nights, with closed haunted houses and interactive scare zones distributed throughout its parks.

The SeaWorld edition stands out for integrating its aquatic theme into haunted houses and scare zones. Plus, it includes ominous photo opportunities as well as themed food and drinks.

This year the event will also debut an adrenaline-filled experience on Halloween Orlando, the Howl-O-Scream 5K Run marathon, which will take place on September 13. Details are scrace, but its slogan (“Run for your life”) leads us to speculate that it will involve terrifying entities chasing joggers. We can’t wait!

Disney Springs Halloween

5 Halloween at Celebration or Disney Springs

The dream of many die-hard Disney fans is to retire and live in Celebration, an Orlando residential community developed by the same company behind the Disney parks. Every October 31, the community invites Orlando tourists to take part in a traditional trick-or-treating tour through an American suburb.

During Halloween Orlando the streets of Celebration are filled with costumed children and their companions, who go door to door asking for all kinds of candy. Houses and gardens are decorated according to the spooky theme of the season, but with the Disney brand’s fun and harmless touch characteristic. Bear in mind, there is no parking and the crowds are massive!

If you prefer not as many people around you can also head to Disney Springs, Walt Disney World Resort’s open-air entertainment venue and shopping center. There you’ll find seasonal decor, Halloween store specials, restaurants with Halloween offerings, and live entertainment.
