New To Dos in Orlando Part 2


Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party (The Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World)

This special annual Halloween celebration offers so much entertainment with shows, parades, singing, dancing, parties, rides and attractions, and this year their brand new fireworks show, Disney’s Not So Spooky Spectacular. It’s not to be missed. This frighteningly fun party runs right through until November 1.

Mall-O-Ween at the Florida Mall!

Major theme parks are not the only place that your little pumpkins can celebrate Halloween. The Florida Mall is great to spend the afternoon shopping and grabbing a bite to eat before enjoying a fun and safe night at The Play Park and Center Court, located in front of the Dining Pavilion inside the mall. Children of all ages are encouraged to don their best Halloween costume to hunt/haunt the mall in search of candy. They also offer face painting, special character experiences, a photo booth, and more. Note: Participation by individual stores may vary. Costumes should be worn only during event hours and masks are allowed only on children 12 years old and younger. Mall-O-Ween takes place from 4 pm to 7 pm on Thursday, October 31.

Plazaween at Wall Street Plaza in Downtown Orlando

This event is definitely for the over 21 crowd. Plazaween offers 3 nights of the biggest and best Halloween block parties in Downtown Orlando (2 city streets and 7 venues are participating) featuring live music, light shows, costume contests, and drink specials. I used to go and can say that it is a night of dancing, drinking, and some really excellent costumes. A local gal dressed as the girl from The Ring and is a standout memory for me. Every time I passed her on the street that night, she was in character…creepy and totally awesome! Orlando takes Halloween seriously and this is the adult downtown party of the year. Friday, October 25, Saturday, October 26, and Thursday, October 31. Come in your best costume!

Sebastian Bach at Hard Rock Live

Are you a big fan of 80s hair metal music? Hair metal lifer and former Skid Row supersinger Sebastian Bach will perform on his 30th-anniversary tour at the Hard Rock Live at Universal Studios. I’ve seen Baz many times over the past 30 years and I can attest, this phenomenal frontman rocks the house every single time. Aging is scary enough so relive your youth this Halloween with a rocking spectacular. He draws a big crowd so get your tickets asap. Wear your best glam metal outfit and rock out. Wednesday, October 30 at 8 pm.

And no worries about driving to any of these awesome events. All are just a short drive away from your luxury vacation villa.
