Yesterday, we stopped to watch the 2022 Halloween golf cart parade at Disney’s Fort Wilderness before our dinner reservations. The parade is an annual tradition where guests renting a golf cart decorate them with (often elaborate and Disney) Halloween “costumes.”
Cast Members kicked off the parade.
The first golf cart was decorated with classic fall aesthetics like leaves, corn stalks, and pumpkins.
The next cart had a band of canine pirates.
This cart was strapped high with fireworks as the guests “learn to fly the Goofy way.”
