The magical fall season kicks off September 1 with the first Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party of the year.
The party takes place on 26 nights throughout September and October. The hard-ticket event takes place on select nights through October 31, and highlights of the party include Happy HalloWishes, Mickey’s Boo-to-You parade, and trick-or-treating throughout the park.
Later in September the 19th Epcot International Food and Wine Festival begins. This year’s festival has been extended to a record 53 days – it begins September 19 and runs through November 10.
The festival features tapas size dishes from more than 30 marketplace booths and guests can take part in culinary demonstrations by celebrity chefs, in addition to wine tastings and mixology seminars. The Eat to the Beat concert series is also part of the festival and includes acts such as The Pointer Sisters and Rick Springfield.
