Today Disney announced a series of surprises leading up to a full day of #HalfwaytoHalloween fun and Disney Parks announcements on Thursday, April 28!

The first of the #HalfwaytoHalloween surprises to materialize was a look at the dreadfully delicious Halloween-inspired eats and treats at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort. They're planning to release a Halloween-themed At-Home Planning Guide on April 26, 2022.

On April 27, 2022, there’s more to come during a special @DisneyParks Twitter Watch Party featuring a favorite film of the Halloween season on Disney+ (which you may be able to guess from our bewitching Blog theme). Bring your favorite snacks and join us live on Twitter on April 27 beginning at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. They'll also be sharing new Disney Halloween-inspired digital wallpaper art earlier in the day - created especially for the occasion.

During the big, daylong #HalfwaytoHalloween celebration on April 28, 2022, it’s nothing but treats as Disney shares several frightfully fantastic Disney Parks Halloween and other spooky announcements that you won’t want to miss. And then Disney will be your ghost host for a first-of-its-kind @DisneyParks TikTok Live beginning Thursday at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT. It’ll be the first time the account goes live from multiple Disney Parks locations, including Disney Cruise Line, featuring some spooky surprises. You can also expect some mummy-approved “shriek peek” surprises, a new Hocus Pocus Sanderson Sisters-inspired look for all Disney Parks channels, and much more.

During the #HalfwaytoHalloween celebration on Thursday, April 28, the Disney Parks blog is inviting guests at Disney Parks to Disney bound in outfits inspired by their favorite Disney Halloween character, film, attraction or theme – costumes are not allowed and please follow the attire guidelines at each Disney resort location. *

Be sure to keep checking the Disney Parks Blog each day throughout the week to stay updated on all of the eerily awesome Halloween-related announcements, experiences and updates during the biggest and best #HalfwaytoHalloween yet.
