Introduction

This is the story of our Halloween trips to Walt Disney World and Disneyland, with a little bit of Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings research thrown in for good measure. (And, no, “research” is not a euphemism for “wedding crashing” this time!) It was also the first time we spent more than one day at Epcot’s Food & Wine Festival or ventured to a non-Disney theme park—in this case, Islands of Adventure for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Plus, we were lucky enough to steal a bit of The Roots’ last few days in Orlando for a fun meal and trip to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.
