It’s Halloween at Disneyland which means once again the “villains” are taking over Disneyland (along with Mickey & friends in costumes of course!)
The ENTIRE Disneyland Resort has been transformed for the Halloween Season, now – October 31st. Of course, we’ve already mentioned the always-popular Mickey’s Halloween Party(have you gotten your tickets yet? Remember, this is your only chance to see the amazing fireworks spectacular Halloween Screams, & trick or treat your way thru the park), but that’s just the beginning of the festivities!
As I’m sure you’ve already guessed, Disneyland has got a few tricks up their sleeves…
Halloween at Disneyland
First of all, the “villains” have completely ‘boo’-tified the Parks. Amazing & clever “jack-o-lanterns, candy corn, ghouls, bats & other fabulously frightful Halloween decorations that are ‘boo’-tifing” the resort. (Along Main St. alone, there are over 300 totally unique pumpkins.)
But that’s not all the fun in store… although the “villains” may be in charge, all of the Disney characters have gotten into the spirit of things – I’m sure you’ll see a character (or two) fully decked out in their own Halloween costumes.
Once again, Jack Skellington has returned to take over the Haunted Mansion & bring back the Haunted Mansion Holiday to New Orleans Square in Disneyland. “Transformed to a mix of Halloween spookiness and Christmas tradition,Haunted Mansion Holiday is inspired by the classic animated film Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas. Jack and his friends provide plenty of havoc and surprises as they celebrate the holidays at the Haunted Mansion in their unusual style. Jack’s return to the Haunted Mansion includes the traditional Halloween/Christmas gingerbread house in the Mansion Ballroom,” & I can guarantee there will be with some special spooky surprises in store this year.
Back again this year, and recommended for older kids & adults (because it can be scary), is Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy. “The scary experience will begin as a typical Space Mountain adventure, but will suddenly launch voyagers into an uncharted and haunted section of the universe. Ghosts appear out of the starry darkness and swirling galaxies of Space Mountain, reaching out as if to grab guests as they speed through space. The exhilarating drops and curves of the journey are punctuated by piercing screams, creepy sound effects and haunting music. The Halloween transformation occurs outside the mountain as well, as frightening images, audio and lights illuminate the Space Mountain exterior.”
Amazingly enough, there is still more! As if ALL of that wasn’t enough, if you really want to get into the Halloween spirit of things be sure to check out: The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Main Street Pumpkin Festival, Villain “meet & greet,” as well as all the other characters you’ll find in seasonal costumes greeting guests throughout the park, the Halloween Roundup at Big Thunder Ranch (where you’ll can meet Sheriff Woody & Jessie, make arts & crafts, view some amazing pumpkin carving, & visit with the barnyard animals), the Dia De Los Muertos & all of the delicious seasonal goodies only available this time of year (my personal favorites? the caramel apple cider & candy corn rice krispie treats).
