在过去的60年中, 迪士尼 学会了举办派对的一两件事。但是初期 万圣节 at 迪士尼 were nothing like 您可以在世界各地的公园中体验到什么,虽然今年'大流行改变了人们的庆祝活动。

"Holiday Magic at 迪士尼 Parks: Celebrations Around the World from Fall to Winter," a new book from 迪士尼 Editions, includes photos of 迪士尼's past 和 present 万圣节 festivities along with historical resources from the Walt 迪士尼 Archives.

Even before 迪士尼乐园 opened in 1955, 迪士尼 characters, performers, 和 themed floats had a presence in the annual Anaheim 万圣节 Parade. It wasn't until 1959, however, that 迪士尼乐园 brought 万圣节 inside the park with a Parade of Pumpkins. This event is one of the few in 迪士尼 history that Walt 迪士尼 had a hand in planning. 

On the Saturday before 万圣节, 迪士尼 piled up 1,000 pumpkins outside the gates of Holidayland, a 野餐和活动区 that once sat near 迪士尼乐园'的正门。想要参加游行和南瓜雕刻比赛的嘉宾带回家一个南瓜,并在万圣节期间带着服装和他们雕刻的南瓜回到法官面前游行。

At the time, 1,000 was an ambitious number even by 迪士尼 standards. 

"The park wasn'每天吸引成千上万人。他们不能'当时不适合在公园里"艾伦告诉内幕人士。"放弃南瓜是保证人们会来的。如果你放出1000个南瓜,你'希望下周下500人会带着他们雕刻的南瓜回来。"

评审后,孩子们将他们的作品带到了幻想世界's Mickey Mouse Club Theater to receive their prizes. When the festivities were done, the contestants 和 their chaperone received 自由 admission to 迪士尼乐园 for the day.

万圣节 celebrations at 迪士尼 were minimal through the 1970s, 1980s, 和 early 1990s.

尽管举行了开幕式's success, 迪士尼乐园 didn'直到1968年为止,公园内都没有举行过万圣节庆祝活动,即使那时也只是万圣节游行。

1970年代,佛罗里达州沃尔特迪斯尼世界的魔幻王国举办了主题活动和娱乐活动的万圣节周末派对,但是,正如艾伦(Allan)所说,"与您今天所看到的相比,规模很小。"根据迪士尼公园博客的说法,这些通常是 下班后活动 现场音乐,魔术表演和面向成年人的游行。

"我认为有人认为万圣节不是'Disney' holiday," 所有an said. "万圣节适合大一点的孩子,因为它有一个可怕甚至血腥的角度,如果要有一个家庭友好的万圣节,它将在您的大街上。" 

迪士尼 Parks Blog reported the 迪士尼 parks started to get more 雄心勃勃的万圣节庆祝活动 到1980年代,以主题商品和万圣节活动为主题。

在中间-'90s, 迪士尼 brought family-friendly 万圣节 celebrations to its parks on both coasts.

迪士尼乐园'1994年的万圣节复兴活动起步艰难,当时该活动免费提供给任何在早上6点至早上8:30之间穿着服装的人入场。公园很快就座无虚席,大量游客涌入,造成了四个小时的高速公路交通阻塞。虽然没有'未能按计划进行,很明显人们为迪士尼感到兴奋's "not-so-scary"万圣节的版本。

迪士尼 stepped it up the following year with official 万圣节 parties at 迪士尼 World 和 迪士尼乐园.

第一米奇'1995年,不那么恐怖的万圣节派对在迪斯尼世界举行。晚会是迪斯尼演员在公园关闭后对普通客人开放的一晚活动。作为事件'这些年来,人气越来越高,派对的规模也随着增加的日期而增加,以适应需求。
