Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort

It’s one of my favorite times of the year at the Disneyland Resort, Halloween Time!  If you have never been to Disneyland during Halloween before, it is a must see!  Here’s why!


Pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere!  From the moment you enter the park, you will be dazzled by Halloween themed decor and that means a lot of pumpkins in the shapes of your favorite Disney characters.

The Halloween colors are sprinkled all throughout the park, from the train station to the light posts.

Around the Partners Statue, there are carved pumpkins, each featuring a different character.  The characters are chosen to represent the lands of the park.  Buzz Lightyear represents Tomorrowland, Woody represents Frontierland, and several other friends join them to complete the park themed pumpkins.

Over in Frontierland, near Big Thunder Mountain, there is a whole section devoted to Dia de los Muertos.  There is an informative post that details the traditions of the holiday, plus you can even get your face painted at certain times throughout the day.  I love the colors of Dia de los Muertos!

One of the highlights of Halloween Time is Haunted Mansion Holiday, where Jack, Sally and the Nightmare Before Christmas gang take over the Haunted Mansion.  You can also meet Jack and Sally in New Orleans Square.

Halloween wouldn’t be complete without a plethora of treats.  There are all kinds of themed treats available, from marshmallow wands to Rice Krispie treats to cake pops to caramel apples.  Make sure you bring your sweet tooth!

Halloween Time is second (in my mind) only to Christmas at Disneyland, and honestly, each year the gap between the two closes a little for me.  If you haven’t experienced Halloween Time before, definitely make plans to check it out.  Mickey’s Halloween Party is also a Disneyland favorite, and I will be attending for the first time next week so check back for all the details!
