When Halloween falls midweek, it gets us a chance to celebrate during the weekend before and the weekend after, not to mention on actual Oct. 31. Here's a look at how the theme parks are marking the occasion for the next 10 days.
+ Magic Kingdom throws Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party events Friday night, Sunday, Tuesday and next Friday night, Nov. 1. Note that its Oct. 31 session is sold out already. Not-So-Scary is an extra ticket, after hours event that features a special parade, fireworks and shows plus ample trick-or-treating spread throughout the park. Tickets range from $57 to $67. Busy these dates? Fear not. Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party revs up Nov. 8. More info: disneyworld.com.
+ Halloween Horror Nights continues at Universal Studios with intense chills provided by eight haunted-house mazes. Themes include TV shows and horror flicks such as "The Walking Dead," "American Werewolf in London," "Evil Dead" and "The Cabin the the Woods." Beware: Universal itself sometimes labels this after-hours event as PG-13. Remaining dates include this Friday, Saturday and Sunday plus Thursday (that's Halloween) and Nov. 1-2. Tickets range from $42.99 to $91.99, depending on date and time of purchase. More info: HalloweenHorrorNights.com/Orlando.
+ It's the final weekend for SeaWorld's Halloween Spootacular, which sports an underseas theme along the path to Bayside Stadium from noon to 8 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Featured are trick-or-treating, character interaction (watch out for roller-skating seaweed), a dance party and craft activities. Costumes are encouraged for the kiddos. Spooktacular is included in regular park admission of $92 ($84 for ages 3-9). More info: SeaWorldOrlando.com.
+ Legoland Florida wraps up its Brick-or-Treat event on Saturday and Sunday. At 1 p.m., the trick-or-treat trail opens, but there's also a scavenger hunt, dance party, costume contest (for ages 12 and younger) and the world's largest jack-o'-lantern made of Lego blocks. These activities are included in regular admission of $81 ($74 for ages 3-12). More info: Legoland.com.
+ Act fast if you want to catch Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens in Tampa. Its final two nights are tonight and Saturday night (7:30 p.m.- 1 a.m.). Yep, there's no Howl-O-Scream on Halloween night. But there are haunted houses and other intensely spook attractions. It's an after-hours, extra-ticket event, too. Tickets are $55 tonight, $65 for Saturday. More info: Buschgardens.com/tampa.
