Halloween at Disneyland

Giant Mickey Pumpkin decorDisneyland is special enough but Halloween at Disneyland is spectacular. Disneyland has mixed up the colorful playful Candy Corn Acres in California Adventure with the scary Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy in Disneyland. The other attractions that are decorated especially for Halloween are the Haunted Mansion Holiday, The Twilight Zone: Tower of Terror and Halloween Screams. This year, they have a special fireworks show that is fantastic. Try to get a good viewing ar"Halloween Screams-A Villainous Surprise in the  Skies"ea by the castle if you want to watch it. Because of the spectacular fireworks show, Disneyland opened the backlot area by the Carnation Store that will take you to the front of Main Street.

Spooky new fireworks and ghoulish screams at Space Mountain add to the fun when Halloween Time returns to Disneyland Resort until November 1.   Halloween Time offers families a chance to celebrate the season as they interact with some of Disney’s most beloved characters decked out in seasonal costumes at Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure parks.  Guests will also enjoy a unique opportunity to experience some spooky fun with Disney’s more sinister characters, the Disney villains.  In addition, Mickey’s Trick-or-Treat Party returns for 12 special nights in October.

Attraction operating hours may vary from Park hours.  Please see location Information Centers for more information.  For tickets check first with AAA or at Costco.

    YES! Disneyland during the holidays (Halloween and Christmas) has ALWAYS been my favorite. EVERYONE should check it out during both those times, they do so much to make the park really themed in every square inch of both parks. Really special especially for older kids/adults because it should be appreciated!!

    Visiting Disneyland with the family when the Halloween decorations are up was fantastic! No one should miss it. The great thing about Disneyland is there is something for the whole family. It is getting harder to find places the whole family can enjoy together Everyone can enjoy the Haunted Mansion and for the older kids, space mountain is exciting. It is enjoyable for the older adults to walk around and look at the Halloween decorations, or sit and watch one of the many shows throughout Disneyland.
