Leu Gardens Fairy Doors: Visitors to Leu Gardens in Orlando may notice a magical touch when visiting the 50-acre grounds. The Fairy Doors have returned for a fourth year.

For example, a door belonging to Piper, a music fairy, is decorated like a piano. $10, $5 ages 4-17, free for 3 and younger. 407-246-2620. 1920 N Forest Ave., Orlando. leugardens.org.

Halloween Horror Nights: Halloween attractions like this one at Universal Orlando are back earlier than ever, maybe to make up for being canceled last year.

There will be 10 haunted houses, including one based on Beetlejuice and another based on Netflix’s Haunting of Hill House. There are five scare zones and two spooky shows, and you can enjoy some of the theme park’s top rides. Creepy favorite Jack the Clown returns to celebrate Halloween Horror Nights’ 30th anniversary. It opens at 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday and runs select nights through Oct. 31. $70.99-$122.99. Universal Studios, Orlando. orlando.halloweenhorrornights.com.
