Disney Kicks Off ‘Halfway to Halloween’, Celebrating New ‘Haunted Mansion’ Film
Welcome, foolish mortals, to this year’s Disney Parks Halfway to Halloween celebration! Spring has sprung, which means the countdown to spooky season has officially begun and #HalfwaytoHalloween is underway at Disney. This week, we’re celebrating all things Halloween with exciting news and updates from Disney Parks around the world and a full celebration of the fan-favorite Haunted Mansion attraction, plus limited-time specialty food and beverage at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort.
To begin your journey into the boundless realm of the supernatural, be sure to check out the trailer for Walt Disney Studios’ “Haunted Mansion” which premiers in theaters July 28. This comically creepy adventure is inspired by the classic theme park attraction and tells the story of a woman and her son (Rosario Dawson and Chase Dillon) who enlist a motley crew of so-called spiritual experts (Owen Wilson, Danny DeVito, LaKeith Stanfield and Tiffany Haddish) to help rid their home of supernatural squatters.
Whether you’re at one of our parks, on a Disney Cruise Line ship or celebrating at home, there will be something for everyone to celebrate Halfway to Halloween this year.
We can’t help but wonder, being halfway to spooky season… will we hear about Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party this week? Stay tuned to find out!
