My favorite time to visit Disneyland is during Halloween Time. I know that Christmas Time is also very magical at Disneyland but it is also pretty darn crowded. Disneyland offers wonderful tours and one of my favorites is the Happiest Haunts Tour.
I enjoy Disneyland during Halloween Time because the crowds are manageable, the weather is fantastic – warm (not hot) during the day and cool at night, cool enough for a sweatshirt. I love walking around Disneyland when there is a slight chill in the air.
Entering Disneyland and seeing Main Street, U.S.A. all decked out in fall colors is really magical. It reminds me of living in a small town and having a fall festival. The streets and shop windows are lined with pumpkins from the Pumpkin Festival where no two pumpkins are alike.
The Halloween treats are supper yummy, my kids love the caramel apples.
