Halloween is not just about ghosts, witches, and pumpkins; it’s also about togetherness – especially when expecting to have your wits scared out of you.  But with the current Covid-19 pandemic, togetherness and crowds are as rare as a sighting of Ichabod Crane’s head.

Disney has opened its parks to visitors and even though October is still a few months away, Universal has decided to cancel their annual Halloween Horror Nights events this year at the Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood.

In a Tween, the company said, “we know this decision will disappoint our fans and guests. We are disappointed too. But we look forward to creating an amazing event in 2021.”

Walt Disney World has also cancelled its annual Magic Kingdom Halloween part for this year.

Both events bring thousands of visitors to the park each year.
