While a fixture at Downtown Disney for several years now, Disney has announced that Happy Haunting, a two day free trick-or-treating event at the Central Florida resort, has been discontinued. The event typically took place October 30 and 31, but Zoraya Suarez, a Disney World media relations manager, said that due to overcrowding the event no longer offers a good guest experience.
If you’re disappointed about the change, rest assured that Downtown Disney will still be getting into the spirit of the season. Restaurants will offer special fall menu items, and the month of October will feature seasonal decorations and more entertainment. Suarez hopes that all of these seasonal specialties will “make it possible for guests to enjoy the offerings at Downtown Disney for a longer period of time.”
