Pick a Disney Themed Halloween Party
There are so many great Disney movies and characters that it can be hard to choose just a theme.
However, if you are having a hard time picking, here are some suggestions to get your Halloween party planning started!
Mickey & Minnie
Obviously, these two are the first characters most Disney fans think of. That’s because they are adorable and always have fun Halloween costumes at Disney events!
There are plenty of decorations, snack ideas, and crafts out there that will help make party planning easy if you go with these classic Disney characters.
You can even add in the Fab Five- the more the merrier, right?
Fans of this movie based on three witches will love putting together a creepy Halloween party featuring the Sanderson sisters, Billie, and even Binx the black cat.
If you go this route, we have a printable Hocus Pocus bingo game that’s really fun to play during the movie.
If you and your family adore this movie with a town full of monsters and spooky creatures, throw a party filled with the ghoulish but lovable Marnie and friends.
Since there are 4 movies in this Halloween series, you can easily have them playing non-stop in the background. Or turn it into a major Halloweentown movie marathon!
Nightmare Before Christmas
Jack Skellington is one of the most popular Disney characters, so if you want to throw a party that will really wow your older kids, then this spooky Halloween party theme is perfect for you!
We even have a fun Nightmare Before Christmas guessing game featuring Oogie Boogie that’s sure to take your party to the next level.
Your family might love the Haunted Mansion attraction at Disneyland so much that they will jump at the chance to celebrate with some fun Halloween decor that is right out of the manor itself.
Personally, I think it’s the details that make the Haunted Mansion such a fun party theme!
Disney Halloween Food Ideas
Now that you have your party theme picked, it’s time to think about what to serve! For some Disney Halloween party ideas, check out some of these fun snacks you can serve.
Made with just a handful of ingredients, these spooky Oreos are easy to make and fun to eat.
All you need are your favorite chocolate sandwich cookies, vanilla frosting, M&Ms, and food coloring gel in black, red, or green.
Disney Halloween Cupcakes
Skip the store-bought cupcakes and go all out with some Disney Halloween cupcakes that look just like Minnie Mouse, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, or Goofy.
If making characters isn’t in your wheelhouse try a decorative paper wrapper and character-themed jimmy sprinkles instead.
Printable Disney cupcake toppers (like these Hocus Pocus ones) are also a creative and easy way to dress up your desserts.
Mummy Hotdogs (aka Pigs in a Blanket)
Kids and adults love finger food at Halloween parties. Why not make these adorable mummy hotdogs?
All you need to do is wrap dough around a hotdog or sausage. You can even just use refrigerated dough to make things even easier on you. And add on some eyes to make them extra spooky!
The kids will love digging into a fun pizza shaped like a Jack O’ Lantern or even a spooky ghost. You can make them yourself or order from some local pizzerias.
Mickey Pumpkin Cookies
If your kids want a fun treat to take home after the party, consider making some Mickey-shaped pumpkin cookies. You can even have them personalized with their names for a special touch they will love.
You can even get away with refrigerated cookie dough and use this Mickey cookie cutter to stamp out your design. Then, just ice with orange frosting.
Disney Halloween Party Decorations
Now that you have picked your party theme and found some great snacks, it’s time to think about festive Disney Halloween party decorations.
If your kids are into something spooky, go with some creepy decor to get the party started.
But if all things creepy aren’t really their thing or they aren’t really into Halloween, you can always do a fun not-so-scary Disney twist. Think pumpkins, hay bales, and jack-o-lanterns.
A Halloween tablecloth would be simple to create, but if you want to really take it up a notch try making your own Halloween banner to match.
There are lots of Disney movie versions of banners to print and cut online. This is a cute Nightmare Before Christmas printable banner.
Haunted Mansion Party Decorations
Create this creepy scene with some plastic skeletons hanging around to give the party an extra spooky atmosphere.
You can even have one of the skeletons hold up pictures of your family members so they are part of the decor too!
Hocus Pocus Party Decorations
If Halloween isn’t your family’s favorite holiday choose another movie to have as the theme and dress up in costume.
Disney Halloween Party Games and Activities
Keep things lively with some games and activities. For the not-so-scary party try some games like:
Not only will this game occupy your guests but it can be personalized with Halloween pictures or Disney-themed bingo cards depending on what you’re going for.
We have a super fun Hocus Pocus bingo printable game on our site.
I think it would be fun to do a Disney villain version featuring popular characters like Cruella de Vil, Scar, Jafar, and Ursula.
And for older kids, you could add characters like Prince John, Stinky Pete, Sid, and Queen of Hearts.
One of the best games to play at your Disney Halloween party is charades. It’s guaranteed not only will you be able to get everyone in on it, but also have them laughing and having fun!
You can go with any theme – from iconic movie scenes like The Wizard of Oz or Nightmare Before Christmas all way down through villains from within their favorite Disney movies such as Jafar or Maleficent
Disney Halloween FAQs
While there are a ton of really horrible Disney villains, there are a few that take the cake. Remember when Hades unleashed the Titans on the gods of Mount Olympus in Hercules? And we all know how Ursula took Ariel’s voice and then tried to manipulate her way into Prince Erik’s heart. Personally, I think Scar is one of the most twisted Disney villains.
If you want to dress as a Disney villain, some awesome costume ideas include Cruella de Vil, Ursula, Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Jafar, Captain Hook, Dr. Facilier, and Governor Ratcliffe. Or you can do a group costume like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Mary Poppins, The Incredibles, Inside Out, or Peter Pan.
