Halloween at the Parks

Not surprisingly, all the major parks inn Orlando celebrate the festivities in their own style.  Walt Disney World, for example, presents the "Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party" geared for the family but targeting the children specifically.  This is typical Disney so the entire family can enjoy themselves without somebody getting in over their heads.

Universal Studios, Orlando, on the other hand, is in total control of your fear.  Using an "in your face approach" to preying on your fears, Universal flexes it's muscle by showing off why they make movies and have done so for over 100 years.  It's intense, it's scary, and it's awesome.  Might not be recommended for kids under 12 years old, but hey, they're your kids! Have fun.

Sea World and Busch Gardens do it more like Disney but add a more interactive twist for the kids.  Lighter and less scary, they are easier than Universal if it's the family experience you're looking for.
