A few seasonal updates from Walt Disney World were released yesterday.
-Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, due to its many hallmarks – stage shows, parades and fireworks – are unable to take place in this new, unprecedented environment. With that in mind, Disney has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Additionally, Disney H2O Glow Nights, the nighttime special ticket event at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon, will not take place for the remainder of 2020. Guests who have already bought tickets to these events will be assisted with refunds over the coming weeks.
-EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival will begin this year on July 15th! While Disney has stated that it will be a modified festival experience, we don’t have more details at this time. For scavenger hunt fans, Remy’s Ratatouille Hide and Squeak scavenger hunt returns, however the “Eat to the Beat Concert Series” has been cancelled as well.
-Disney has also released a statement regarding festivals later this year during the holiday season:
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays, which includes the Candlelight Processional. We are monitoring our new environment closely, and will make a decision on these events as we continue to learn more from government and health officials. As always, our goal is to explore every option and look at ways in which we can still host events and festivals full of Disney magic, while still operating responsibly with the health and safety of our guests and cast members in mind.
