We’re on the countdown to Halloween this week, and that means paying attention to a host of seasonal events that all aim to entertain and amuse us as we head to All Hallows Eve itself. So come on out and get your Orlando Halloween on!
With that in mind, we thought we’d start the week with a look at all the fiendish fun on offer around our many attractions.
SeaWorld’s Spooktacular, Oct 30, 31, and Nov 1: Dive into an ocean of Halloween fun for the whole family with the Halloween Spooktacular! Included with park admission, the daytime weekend event gives kids the chance to score lots of candy and goodies on the trick-or-treat trail. It also features a Halloween Dance Party and all the family’s favorite Sesame Street® friends, including Elmo, The Count, Cookie Monsters, and others, in the Sesame Street Halloween Parade.
On Oct. 30, SeaWorld’s Spooktacular is complemented by SeaWorld Flicks & Frights, a drive-in movie experience showing spooky movies every Saturday night in October
LEGOLAND Florida, Oct 31: Enjoy safe, neighborhood-style trick-or-treating with plenty of candy, seasonal shows and exclusive LEGO® characters at Brick or Treat, a one-of-a-kind kids’ Halloween celebration. The fun event is included with general admission, and costumed kids and their parents can visit six awesomely themed trick-or-treating locations that have been thoughtfully planned to allow extra spacing for families and contactless candy distribution.
In addition to social distancing, all employees at these stations will wear face coverings (masks and/or face shields) and gloves. Other fun features include The Groovin’ Graveyard and A Candy-Coated Curse live shows, LEGO Halloween character meet-and-greets, larger-than-life LEGO models, and other surprises.

Universal Orlando, now through Nov 1: celebrate the Halloween season with a wealth of eerie experiences, all included with park admission. It all starts with two extreme haunted houses at Universal Studios, where terrifying creatures await to haunt your every move. They include Universal Monsters: The Bride of Frankenstein Live, starring one of Universal Pictures’ most legendary monsters, and Revenge of the Tooth Fairy, presenting an original story that uncovers a dark ritual behind the innocent childhood tradition.
What’s more, everyone can wear family-friendly costumes when visiting Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, the latter of which will also have trick-or-treating for guests ages 12 and under. And don’t miss Universal Studios’ Scarecrow Stalk, a new scavenger hunt that will have you searching for unique scarecrows and collecting stamps at 13 retail locations throughout the park. Find them all for a special Halloween treat!
You can also look forward to the Halloween Horror Nights Tribute Store and seasonal, limited-time food and beverage items. Universal Orlando is also prioritizing guest safety with face-mask and social-distancing requirements, plus other measures, so you can scare up a good time with confidence.
