Disneyland once again welcomes the Halloween spirits, transforming overnight into a festival of happy frights from Sept. 7- Oct. 31 2018. Pumpkin clad tops of the entrance gates greet guests as they enter the park. Even Mickey with his top hat and Minnie in a witch’s hat partake in the fun by dressing up in purple and orange Halloween costumes. If you want to join Mickey and Minnie in festive attire, Disneyland sells a vibrant orange sequined Mickey ear headband with a black and orange polka dot bow along with a variety of other Halloween ear choices.
One of the main attractions of Disneyland Halloween, drawing visitors in every year is the Haunted Mansion Holiday. Jack Skellington from the Nightmare Before Christmas takes residency at the Mansion decking the manner out like his hometown: Halloweentown. Every stage in the attraction showcases an odd mix of Christmas and Halloween. Christmas lights in Madame Leota’s room, a towering snow hill of pumpkins, appearances from Jack and friends mix with the usual spirits of the mansion. In the ballroom an enormous gingerbread house resides being ripped from its base by a spider hanging down from a web. During the season, Ghost Galaxy replaces Space Mountain. Frightening lights, sounds, and music pierce the atmosphere as riders zoom through space dodging eerie space creatures from an unknown galaxy.
Another perk of Halloween at Disneyland is Mickey’s exclusive costume party taking place Sept. 19- Oct. 31 on select dates in both Disneyland and California Adventure parks. Extra celebration time after park hours are granted to party guests who purchase a separate ticket which offers five hours of Halloween themed activities: character meetings, a unique firework display, a villainous parade, and certain trick or treating locations reside within the park for party guests to claim candy. Attendees are welcome to come dressed in costume while they take advantage of the special activities. A limited amount of tickets are available for the party and are currently sold out for this year’s bash.
