Disney Halloween Ideas for 2020

Our Halloween season would usually include attending fall festivals, school carnivals and participating in trick-or-treat events! In addition, we always made several visits to the theme parks to see Disneyland at Halloween. Attending the inaugural Oogie Boogie Bash Halloween Party was a seasonal highlight!

Despite the Halloween cancellations of our favorite fall activities, we’re making the most of the season. As a result of many autumn events being held off this year, you might be looking for extra fun things to do. These Disney Halloween ideas are perfect for 2020 and are a fun way to bring some of the not-so-spooky Disney magic to your home this Halloween season!

Halloween Time at Disneyland in Fall is full of tricks and treats for the entire family!

It’s a Nightmare…Before Christmas!

Let’s start off this party with the King of Halloween, Jack Skellington from Tim Burton’s A Nightmare Before Christmas. Jack and Sally always take over the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland and you can get in the spirit at your house too. It’s a Halloween mashup that’s truly spirited! Check out these Nightmare Before Christmas and Haunted Mansion themed items that add just the right amount of scare to your lair.

Spooky Little Touches

I like to make my seasonal decor subtle, almost like a Hidden Mickey. Rather than gory or all out frightening, I enjoy using autumnal decorations with small dashes of spooky. Above all, it’s more appropriate to my family, especially with a preschooler who is easily scared! These are fall ways to decorate your home and body with Disney this Halloweentime.

We all need dishtowels, right? And these Hocus Pocus Kitchen Towels from The Magical Feather on Etsy are Halloween perfection!

All Things Star Wars for Halloween

Star Wars Halloween costumes have been popular since I was a kid. There’s no stopping them now, with the release of the newer films and the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World theme parks! If you have a Star Wars fan in the house, these are some awesome ways to bring the franchise in during the Halloween season.
