The Long Beach Convention Center played host once again to the fabulous Midsummer Scream which brought panels, cosplay, exhibitors and an amazing collection of fandom ranging from spooky to outright gory. Although the event can and does delve deep into the creepiest, scariest, and goriest that Halloween has to offer, it also celebrates the lighter, funnier, and more colorful aspects of the holiday which means… plenty of Disney fans!

At its heart, Midsummer Scream is a pop culture convention similar to others you may have seen but the unique focus here on the cherished fall season makes this an absolute Halloween dream! Enjoy as we take a look at the offerings of the 2022 event that offer a Disney focus or general appeal to Disney fans and MouseInfo readers! ENJJOY!
