21 Things to Do in Orlando for Halloween

I love this time of year when the weather cools down and we can spend long days outside. C’mon weather, please cool down.  Pretty please.  I love the opportunity to make special holiday memories with my family. But sometimes I can get a little carried away.  And when that happens I tend to drive myself and everyone around me nuts.  Here are 21 fun things to do this Halloween.  Pick a few and have a blast!
