<< Introduction >>

As we saunter through the dog days of Summer toward those first crisp days of Autumn, there's lots of hustle and bustle across the Disney Vacation Kingdom and there's another edition of the INTERCOT Insider in your mailbox.  In this edition we preview all the fun fall happenings, find out what changes are coming this fall, and take a peak at the Halloween festivities on both coasts and at sea.   Hang on to them hats and glasses, cause this here's the most informative ride on the internet!

<< More Than Changing Leaves >>


As Autumn changes the green foliage of Summer into a kaleidoscope of color, Epcot and the Magic Kingdom will be making changes to their offerings to entertain Guests. A new street party is coming to the Kingdom! This fall, guests of the Magic Kingdom can move it, shake it, dance and then play it, in this update of the popular afternoon street party. And for the first time, Stitch and Phineas & Ferb will join in the fun! Also beginning this fall, Epcot be refreshing the atmosphere entertainment around World Showcase with the addition of new acts and enhancements to some existing performances. Guests can look forward to enjoying a traditional Berber music and dance troupe in Morocco, a corps of dynamic flag-waving performers in Italy, a thrilling lumberjack-inspired show in Canada, a Celtic folk music ensemble at the United Kingdom, and more. Unfortunately this means bidding farewell to existing acts - Mo’Rockin’, Off Kilter, Spirit of America Fife & Drum Corps, and World Showcase Players.  As Downtown Disney continues its transformation into Disney Springs, the area will not be able to host the Festival of Masters in 2014 due to the large construction project. It has yet to be announced if the event will return in November 2015.

This 53 day festival will showcase special events like “Dining Through the Decades—A Tribute to Walt Disney,” a foodie “Boot Camp Series” and a Friday-morning celebrity-chef nosh-and-chat cookbook gathering, “Food for Thought.”  All the food, fun, and nightly Eat to the Beat concerts will run through November 10, 2014.


<< Halloween Happenings >>


From Coast to Coast and out at Sea, Disney is offering Spooktacular ways for Guests to celebrate Halloween in 2014.  On select nights September 1 through October 31, the Magic Kingdom will host Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween party. This special ticket event features Mickey’s Boo-to-You Halloween Parade; Happy HalloWishes Fireworks Spectacular; Disney characters dressed in their favorite Halloween costumes; and treat trails throughout the park. New for 2014, the Diamond Horseshoe in Frontierland will be transformed into Club Villain featuring a dance party and opportunities to “mingle” with Cruella De Vil, Dr. Facilier, Anastasia, Drizella, and Lady Tremaine. Also new this year is an extra ticketed dining event, the Sinister Soiree. This $99 per person add-on to your Halloween Party Ticket will gain you access to a private dessert party in Cinderella Castle with Disney Villains and preferred viewing locations for Mickey’s “Boo-to-You” Halloween Parade and the HalloWishes Fireworks Spectacular. Over at the park the Walt built, Mickey's Halloween Party returns to offer Guests real treat of a way to celebrate Halloween. This special ticket event features “Mickey’s Costume Party” cavalcade, “Halloween Screams” fireworks spectacular. During the party many classic spots take on an aura of foreboding like Towne Square transforming into “Villains Square” or the Cadaver Dans aboard a drifting graveyard raft on the Rivers of America.

Landlubbers aren’t the only ones having a spooky good time this Halloween, the Disney Cruise Line is bringing some Halloween magic on board. The 2014 Halloween on the High Seas event will be offered on most voyages aboard all Disney Cruise Line ships from late September through October. This eerie event features Halloween-themed parties, lively entertainment, and spooky decor. Each ship has planted a unique Pumpkin Tree, which magically transforms throughout the cruise.
