In the past Disney has usually announced Halloween and even Christmas events and dates by now. Hopefully we will get more information soon as Disney announced they are celebrating “Halfway to Halloween” on April 28th.
“It’s hard to believe but we’ve reached the halfway point to Halloween and this year we’re celebrating like never before with a series of wickedly wonderful surprises leading up to a full day of #HalfwaytoHalloween fun and spellbinding Disney Parks announcements on Thursday, April 28″
Today they posted some of the celebratory “Halfway to Halloween” treats coming to the parks.
They also added that tomorrow they will post the “Halloween-themed At-Home Planning Guide.” While Wednesday brings us “@DisneyParks Twitter Watch Party featuring a favorite film of the Halloween season on Disney+ (which you may be able to guess from our bewitching Blog theme). Bring your favorite snacks and join us live on Twitter on April 27 beginning at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.”
Disney is going to utilize TikTok a lot on the actually “Halfway to Halloween” date, April 28th:
” And we’ll be your ghost host for a first-of-its-kind @DisneyParks TikTok Live beginning Thursday at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT. It’ll be the first time we’re live from multiple Disney Parks locations including Disney Cruise Line featuring some fa-boo-lous surprises. You can also expect some mummy-approved “shriek peek” surprises, a new “Hocus Pocus” Sanderson Sisters-inspired look for all of our Disney Parks channels and much more.”
They are asking guests to “Disney Bound” in the parks of the 28th if you happen to be there. Disney Bounding is dressing as a character without wearing an actual costume.
Here’s the example they give:

Personally I’m hoping for some information about what they are doing for a Halloween event in the parks. I would also like to see a peek at the upcoming “Hocus Pocus 2,” and given that they are apparently focusing on “Hocus Pocus” stuff I think we will get it.
We might get some other upcoming Disney+ Halloween special promotions since they are trying to drive subscribers.
I wonder if they will announce some Halloween themed offering for the Galactic Starcruiser since their bookings are so terrible.
Who knows. We will find out soon though!
