SPOOKY EMPIRE EXPANDS WITH WICKED ADDITION OF SPOOKY DAY IN THE PARKS

A New Event by the Creators of Spooky Empire for a Weekend of Villainy Fun 

LAKE BUENA VISTA, FL – Spooky Empire is thrilled to announce the addition of a new event:  Spooky Day In The Parks. Coming to Central, FL this Fall on September 22 – 23, 2017, Spooky Day in the Parks is a two-day meet up event for fans that have a “villainous” side. The weekend taking place throughout the Walt Disney World® Resort, will include a mixture of Theme Park gatherings, Special VIP events, a “Bizarre” full of merchandise to fulfill their dark side, art exhibit, fashion show, and much more to be announced.

This is an opportunity for fans to gather and celebrate their favorite Disney villains and haunted attractions. Not to mention a chance to step out in your best ghoulish garb. Attendees are encouraged to express themselves through Disney bounding or wicked attire, but do keep in mind this is not a costume or cosplay event. Be it dark or fun, guests will be able to showcase their personal style and materialize for this spirited event.

“We wanted to combine the Spooky Empire brand with our love for Disney. It was only natural to combine the two and honor the villains and haunted theme park attractions,” said the owners of Spooky Empire “We are so excited to see this inaugural event come to life.”

Meet-ups during the event will happen at multiple locations around Walt Disney World:

  • Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort (central location)
  • Magic Kingdom® Park
  • The Twilight Zone Tower of TerrorTM at Disney’s Hollywood Studios®
  • With more to be announced

Ticket packages will be announced soon.

Rooms are available at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort for a discounted price of $199 per night. Rooms can be reserved by visiting our website SpookyDayInTheParks.com

Spooky Day in the Parks is not associated with Walt Disney World® Resort, Disney’s Hollywood Studios®, or Magic Kingdom® Park. Spooky Day in the Parks works closely with Disney to insure all park rules and regulations regarding attire are followed.
