Disney’s Fort Wilderness Halloween Golf Cart Parade returned this year after not being held in 2020. It was great to see it back! There are several golf cart parades through the year (Fourth of July and Christmas are the other two), but Halloween always seems the most popular. As is often the case, chairs were lined up hours ahead along the parade route. And there always seems to be one or two themes with multiple carts, I was surprised that one of those was Moana (with four or five carts). Below are our photos and video. There were a lot more carts than in my photos, it was a great turnout.
A rider on horseback with the American flag led the parade. There was no official character/s this year. Chip and Dale often do the honors.
Here is our video of the parade. We’ve been posting videos and photos of the parade since 2010 and we always really enjoy the creativity of the campsite guests who put so much effort into their cart (and campsite) decorations.
Throughout the parade, there were some Cast Member designed carts. This one celebrated 50 years of Disney’s Fort Wilderness Camground from the Housekeeping and Custodial Team.
There was a fun Coca-Cola themed cart with guests dressed in sock hop outfits.

An AT-AT is on this cart, and included a Stormtrooper.
A Disney Villains cart included Oogie Boogie and the Evil Queen.
This Inside Out cart included Bing Bong. This was a fun parade, we lined up an hour early since it was so busy and it was great to see so much Halloween spirit. We usually stay longer until the winners are announced (and to check out the decorated/carved pumpkins) but we were already late for an event.
I’ll post a separate article with some of the decorations. They include the Hitchhiking Ghosts.
There are many forms of skeletons throughout the campground.
And this was a cheeky display!
