Traditionally, Cast Members put out the Main Street Jack O’Lanterns the week of or before the first night of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

Given that this year’s event returns on select nights from August 12 to October 31, it looks like the decorations have arrived right on schedule (along with some ghoulishly good party snacks).

Each pumpkin is carved with a design that represents the buildings where they’re displayed. For example, the Fire Station is decorated with a Dalmatian pumpkin and a fire hydrant pumpkin. Meanwhile, the Main St. Cinema has a pumpkin with a film strip carved into it.

A fan-favorite display is the one over at Tony’s Town Square Restaurant. Who can forget the Lady and the Tramp pumpkins sharing a plate of pumpkin spaghetti (well, spaghetti carved onto a pumpkin, to be exact)?

Sometimes the pumpkins are decorative and functional, like the one at the Fire Station that points in the direction of the restrooms.
