No, it's not quite the same as filling your bag with all the candy you collect in the party's unlimited, all-ages trick-or-treating, but it a free way to enjoy the approaching Halloween season. Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party runs select nights through November 1 at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom. On the west coast, Mickey's Halloween Party starts at Disneyland tonight, running select nights through Oct. 31.
Universal opened its annual Halloween Horror Nights events in Orlando and in Hollywood last weekend, as did Cedar Point and its Halloweekends. Knott's Scary Farm gets into the mix tomorrow night. (We will be in Buena Park for the debut.) Other Halloween events kicking off this weekend include:
• SeaWorld Orlando's Halloween Spooktacular, a family-friendly event featuring Sesame Street characters, starts Saturday and runs during regular park hours on weekends through October 29. Trick or treating is available to children in costume.
• Howl-O-Scream opens Friday at Busch Gardens Tampa and Saturday at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. The Tampa event is an after-hours, hard-ticket scare event, while the Williamsburg event takes over the park after 6pm, but is included with regular park admission for the day.
• Six Flags Fright Fest starts at Six Flags Over Texas, Six Flags Over Georgia, Six Flags America, Six Flags New England, and Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. (Fright Fest started last weekend at Six Flags Magic Mountain, Six Flags Great Adventure, Six Flags Fiesta Texas, and Six Flags Great America.)
