It is an awesome sight, to see the Magic Kingdom Park transformed for Walt Disney World Halloween. From the moment you step on to the Magic Kingdom Park, you immediately see the changes from the normal park design to a Fall backdrop with Halloween colors and shapes. Large pumpkins, all smiling of course are around to greet you as you enter and smaller nuances like banners draped over the Train Station building give an instant feel that the Magic Kingdom has changed. The kids will have a great time looking at the different scarecrows, pumpkin carvings and many other decorations. During the day these decorations stand out but, at night, with the addition of lighting, this tends to add an extra bit of fun and scaring to the mix.
