Orlando Halloween Options

Wall Street Plaza is having its annual Plazaween on Saturday night. One cover gets you 8 bars with DJ's at Slingapours, One-Eyed Jacks and outside including DJ Digital (USA). Costume contest.

But downtown everywhere is just plain crazy! This picture from last year provided by reader Brian shows how many revelers were out there, most in costume! They close down a long stretch of Orange Ave.
Church Street is also closed down and Church Street Entertainment clubs have parties inside and out on the street. Clubs include Antigua, Chillers, Big Belly Brewery, Lattitudes and Rok Room. $3000 in cash prizes for costumes. Saturday night.
Bliss Ultra Lounge has $2500 in cash and prizes to give away for their Haunted House Halloween Party.  DJ Mickey Bono (USA) will magically transport you back to Mannequins with awesome Dance music! Saturday night.
The Electric House of Terror will be taking place at Firestone Live on Saturday night with local DJ's Elias R and Carlos Mendoza (USA) along top European female DJ Ilgin (TR) playing Electro and Tech House. Multiple rooms.
All events in this article are on Saturday night except for this Sunday night event. It's the Halloween Bacchanal with DJ Stefan (USA) at Independent Bar. Real vampires will be out for Industrial, Synth, Electro and Dance. No cover.
CityWalk has no official Halloween events planned but it does get crazy as this picture from last year at The Groove shows.  However, as you can see, only about 5% of the patrons wear costumes which spoils some of the fun!
Meanwhile at Pleasure Island, ghosts will be dancing in Rock'n'Roll Beach Club and Motion. Actually, the only thing Halloween-like at PI is this pumpkin pretending to be Mickey at Laffers Cantina. Otherwise, the term ghost town comes to mind!

Back downtown , The Beacham (formerly Tabu Night Club) has the city's largest prize package on costumes along with DJ Richie Rich (USA) playing mostly Hip Hop but mixing it with Top 40 Dance and a lot of Oldies.

Hey Bob, no party at Rix this year? I remember events advertised the past couple years there. Guess they've completely given up on being anything but a hotel bar.

For that matter, nothing at ADH. WDW has become so lame.

71, Rix is having a Halloween Party with costume contest; $10 admission and free for hotel guests. I just couldn't list everything. Like CityWalk, nothing official at ADH.
