As summer winds down, Walt Disney World is gearing up for fall with a host of new festive activities.

Kicking things off is Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party on Aug. 25. The Magic Kingdom will host the guest-favorite event from 7 p.m. to midnight for 32 nights. Highlights include Mickey’s Boo-to-You Halloween Parade, Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular and Happy HalloWishes Fireworks Spectacular. Disney characters will be dressed in Halloween costumes and treat trails will line Magic Kingdom.

In September, artists will take the stages at ESPN Wild World of Sports Complex to perform Christian music for the Night of Joy Concert Series. The annual event, held September 8 and 9, also includes a family activity zone and food trucks.

Foodies can head to Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival for culinary events, seminars and workshops. Running from Aug. 31 to Nov. 17, the festival will include more than 35 specialized marketplaces throughout the World Showcase Promenade and Future World offering tapas-sized dishes, beer, wine and ciders. Celebrity and Disney chefs will present culinary demonstrations; beverage experts will host daily wine tastings and seminars; and 32 musical acts will perform during the Eat to the Beat concerts.

Disney Springs will welcome a new dining venue led by James Beard Award-winning Chef Tony Mantuano with the fall opening of Terralina Crafted Italian. The restaurant will serve authentic Italian cuisine and a wood-burning oven will fire up a selection of artisanal, hand-tossed pizzas.

Hi, my name is Lori Judd and I am a CTA Graduate of ICTA (Institute of Certified Travel Agents) as well as a ACC accredit agent of CLIA. I have been in the travel industry for 20 years. I started my travel career at Journey's Travel and later joined the Walt Disney Travel Company, where I booked travel vacations for the company for 10 years. I left WDTC to pursue my dream of opening my own travel agency. Why should you book through me? You will find that am I extremely knowledgeable in my field with first hand experience with many cruise ships and vacation destinations. Plus, unlike most agents who are condemned to book vacations to make their agency a certain amount of revenue (or risk losing their jobs), I am able to book what you actually want vs what the agency needs. This means your vacation needs will never be compromised just because a supplier is offering more commission to book them. Also, since we are affiliated with a larger travel company we are still able to compete with other agencies by giving our clients competitive prices. The bottom line is: Prestige Travel Vacations is more interested in making your dreams come true by booking exactly what your asking for based on your needs and not by what someone else's idea of what a great vacation for you would be just because it will get them more commission. My cruise experiences: DCL- cruised 9 times! Current Platinum Member/ Wonder (twice in '06) and recent 11/2010/ Magic inaugural & Disney Dream -Apr. 2011 RCCL- 5 times! Current Platinum Member. Sailed once in a family suite. Granduer/ Enchantment/ Mariner/ Navigator 'Jan.08 & 2010/ New- Allure May 2012 Carnival- Fantasy/ Miracle and Inspiration 9/17/09. Ship tours incld.: CCL- Legend/ Holland's Veendam /NCL Star Nov.2011/ RCCL Jewel 3/12/12/ CCL Paradise 10/21/12
