    I've got a couple of pictures of the entrance to MK, the Main Street Station, and the view up Main Street, USA all decked out in its fall Halloween colors, but I can't help you with the other parks as I haven't been there yet this season. I am itching to get over to MGM and/or some of the other parks first chance I get though. When I get around to it I'll try to remember to take some pics of the seasonal decor.

    I know Disneyland is decorated for Halloween, I've seen pictures before!

    This is just a guess based on the fact that the Disney site has shown the lights going up for Christmas in Studios, so I'm thinking no, only MK. I know I've been at WDW during the Halloween season, but I don't recall decorations other than at MK. Epcot is hosting the Food and Wine Festival, so I wouldn't expect anything there for Halloween either.
    mini-V What will you celebrate?

    I would assume you are more or less correct, although I can't really say I remember all that much from last year either. I'm certain MK is the only one who really plays up the whole Halloween thing real big (due mostly to their hosting of the MNSSHP, I would assume), but I'm sure the other parks must feature at least a little something or other, even if it's a much more subtle. No, they aren't going to turn Spaceship Earth in a gigantic jack-o-lantern or anything, but there might be orange and black colored banners hanging from some of the light posts at MGM, or the strong use of predominantly autumn colors in many of the floral arrangements and gardens and such scattered throughout EPCOT, or something along those lines, ya know? It's not like Disney to pass up an excuse to decorate, so I'll check it out.

    Well, I did manage to get to both DAK and MGM yesterday (stupid me... I forgot yesterday was EPCOT's 25th, otherwise I would have gone there... "stupid stupid stupid!!!") Anyway, I could see nothing in terms of decor that appeared to be blatantly Hallow-themed, although nobody is going to pass up the opportunity to sell their Halloween merchandise. Many stores had all sorts of Halloween trinkets, and some were even selling costumes (above and beyond the normal children's princess dresses and such). So I think that while MK is the only one that actually decorates for the holiday, none of the parks will let you forget that it's coming up, even if its only by packing the displays in all the stores with all sorts of seasonal merchandise.

    Anyone going to the MNSSHP on the 28th? I'm probably going to be attending for that date, and then assuming I do so, I will likely stay the night with my gf,who has a room booked at Caribbean Beach for that one night because she needs me to drive her to MCO the following morning. If for some reason I can't go... (work/school/whatever...) then we'll need to come up with a plan B in a hurry, but as of right now that's the plan.

    I'm almost positive that it's only the Magic Kingdom that has decorations----but they are spectacular!
