Fall is officially upon us and though the sun is still shining strong in Orlando, there are signs of autumn and Halloween all around. Whether you prefer Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom, or if Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Florida is your idea of frightening fun, there is so much going on this fall in the world of travel and theme parks.
