Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort

Halloween Time at Disneyland Resort kicked off on September 13th……Friday the 13th.

What is Halloween Time at Disneyland Resort? Glad you asked!  It has been going on for 13 years and over the years it has become very popular and each year Disney rolls out more and more fun.

There are two aspects to Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort.  The first is that the place is all decked out in Halloween decor and the second is Mickey’s Halloween Party on select nights.

  • Celebrate the season with the Haunted Mansion Holiday, brought to you by Jack Skellington, from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, and the residents of Halloween Town.
  • Escape the clutches of freaky phantasms as you are launched to a haunted section of the universe on Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy.
  • Drop in for ghostly encounters and hair-raising thrills at The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.
  • Take a spooky stroll down Main Street, U.S.A., which is transformed into a Pumpkin Festival with hundreds of hand-carved pumpkins on display—and no two alike.
  • Meet some Disney villains as they are conjured up in a sideshow tent at the Halloween Carnival at Big Thunder Ranch in Frontierland.
  • Create Halloween crafts and enjoy some not-so-spooky activities for kids at Halloween Carnival at Big Thunder Ranch. Plus, watch pumpkin carvers and meet some of your favorite Disney Characters in their Halloween costumes.
  • Observe Dia de los Muertos with a traditional skeleton display in Frontierland.
  • Show off your monster moves on the dance floor at the Mad T Party at Disney California Adventure Park, where you can dance the night away, chill out in the lounge or just take in the scene.
  • Discover the thrills and chills of the Disneyland Resort on the Disney’s Happiest Haunts Tour that takes you on lively adventures through both parks.

Then on select nights the park will close a little early and host Mickey’s Halloween Party at Disneyland Park.  This requires a separate park ticket.  If you are an annual passholder you will still need an additional ticket but as an annual passholder you can save up to $16 per ticket on select dates!  But hurry because there are only a few dates left, all other dates are sold out.

The Happiest Place on Earth Gets Spookier
