Walt Disney World Halloween Trick-or-Tweetup A Great Event

Some of the ghoulish entertainment for the evening.

Thursday night my family and I joined nearly 300 other guests at the Magic Kingdom for a special Halloween Trick-or-Tweetup event. The Disney Parks Blog organized this fun, engaging, and magical event for the few lucky guests whose fast fingers got them and RSVP before the event filled up.

Imagineer Pete Carsillo gave tours of the Haunted Mansion Graveyard project he helmed.

Guests were encouraged to dress up and tweet from the event, which many did. Three special guests from Walt Disney Imagineering answered questions from the attendees and Disney Blog team go into the spirit coming in costumes. They also provided free soft drinks and desserts. Finally, they handed out gifts to some of the best costumed guests and everyone got a parting gift (two actually).

Really, I would have been happy with something to drink and the Imagineers. But this event was over the top. One of the best free things I’ve ever experienced as a guest. It’s too bad they can’t do this more often. Disney gets all sorts of great publicity (like this) and the locals get to feel like they’re appreciated.

My biggest critique was that there was so much to do, I couldn’t get it done in the time allotted. Which, if you think about it, isn’t really that bad.

Checkin was at Blizzard Beach. While many guests came in costume, the lack of themed music at checkin was the only real disappointment of the night.

The haunted mansion was illuminated beautifully

Disney artist Tom was available to sign these posters he designed just for the event.

Delicious, themed desserts were a big hit.

At the end of the night we had a great view of them testing and adding the holiday lights on Cinderella Castle. A perfect end to a perfect evening.
