Fall is a time for fes­tive fam­ily fun and, as the crowds calm and the weather cools, Kis­sim­mee is gear­ing up for one of the high­lights of the year: Hal­loween, promis­ing more treats than tricks for trav­ellers vis­it­ing at this time.

But Hal­loween isn’t the only rea­son to visit Kis­sim­mee dur­ing the au­tumn, it’s also the sea­son for food and drink, with nu­mer­ous fes­ti­vals tak­ing place, and the chang­ing leaves adding a touch of rus­set splen­dour to this re­gion of Florida.

Hal­loween hap­pen­ings

Clients are in for a scream with Hal­loween Horror Nights™ at Univer­sal Or­lando Re­sort™, tak­ing place se­lect nights from Septem­ber 14 to Novem­ber 3. The event will fea­ture horror movies of the 1980s, in­clud­ing a haunted house in­spired by Net­flix’s sci-fi thriller Stranger Things.

Young fam­i­lies may be more suited to Mickey’s Not-SoS­cary Hal­loween Party, from Au­gust 17 to Oc­to­ber 31 at the Magic King­dom® Park. Here, chil­dren can get close to their favourite char­ac­ters in their spook­i­est at­tire, plus the Ho­cus Po­cus Vil­lain Spec­tac­u­lar show will re­turn. SeaWorld’s Hal­loween Spook­tac­u­lar® runs at week­ends from Septem­ber 22 to Oc­to­ber28 and LE­GOLAND® Florida Re­sort is host­ing Brick or Treat on se­lect nights from Oc­to­ber 6 - 31.

Foodie fest

Vis­i­tors can feast on culi­nary creations from more than 30 global food and bev­er­age mar­ket­places at the 23rd Ep­cot® In­ter­na­tional Food & Wine Fes­ti­val (Au­gust 30 -Novem­ber 12), while fam­i­lies will love Partin Ranch Corn Maze where they can com­bine lo­cal food with hay rides and get­ting lost.

Vis­i­tors to Cel­e­bra­tion Town’s Ok­to­ber­fest (Oc­to­ber 19-20) can sip a beer while watch­ing a spec­tac­u­lar sea­sonal colour change hap­pen in front of their eyes. And for evening en­ter­tain­ment there’s the re­cently re-opened Pi­rates Din­ner Ad­ven­ture, or ev­ery­thing from live jazz to fla­menco dancers at Mata­dor Ta­cos and Ta­cos Bar.

Fall fash­ion

Those in need of a fash­ion fix for the colder sea­son are spoilt for choice no mat­ter what their bud­get. New re­tail­ers in­clude In­victa’s col­lec­tion of hand-crafted time­pieces at Or­lando In­ter­na­tional Pre­mium Out­lets and Swarovski at The Florida Mall.
