The only thing available until past this weekend is the Haunted Mansion push pop, but that’s because it’s technically a 50th anniversary dessert, it’s been available all year.

Several things are one weekend but other items appear to be available until the Halloween parties start. Nothing says “Halloween” like late April!!

Maybe the theory of left overs from before is off, my son was watching Disney XD and they had a promo for Halfway to Halloween and were doing some cartoons to coincide with it.

I have zero doubt

What? You doubt that Christmas in July would not be a sellout idea. People would clamor to the parks in droves to experience such a novel event. Minthorne came up with quite an idea.

It would be worth it just to find out how many tools would pay? 🤔

The Goofy’s Christmas in July holiday parties should be a hit next year.

Lather. Rinse. Repeat.

That makes sense, nows their chance before summer vacation starts and we’re thrown to the curb again

Fair …it’s also after the spring break travel season officially ending. To attract locals….Which they spend the rest of the time “not wanting” Business is always convenience

It’s only for this one weekend, I think it’s fun!

After seeing what's coming out, I'm definitely leaning towards this. the Jack popcorn bucket looks familiar, and I got the Mickey mummy from the outlet for $15 (IIRC) in Feb. Don't remember when it showed up, but I think it was also still there late March when I went. They've had bulks of them for a while. I wonder if they pulled them from the outlet to put back in parks. They've definitely done that with other merch when the shortages started...

August is still summer in my book, so I also would not go to Halloween party in August. It is also weird MK has pumpkins and fall decor up that early. In that case, it is a bit of the opposite. If we visit MK in summer, our park photos ought to look like "MK in summer" not Halloween. Otherwise, we might someday look at photos and think it was a fall visit.

I don't have any issue with specialty shops that stock holiday merchandise. I've been to the Christmas store in Pigeon Forge many times. What I'm more talking about is the attempt to keep expanding and celebrating the actual "holiday season." Like having Halloween parties in August. Fortunately, Halloween being October 31st limits how soon they can start the Christmas party, but I'm waiting for the day when they keep having Christmas parties into February.
