Halloween at Disneyland!

Halloween at Disneyland!

Every year Disneyland is decorated for HalloweenTime!  It starts September 13-October 31.  I love going to the parks during this time of year and it is very festive!

Disney pumpkins greet you at the entrance

I like Minnie’s bow of leaves

even the plants are ready for Autumn!
They have pumpkins all over Main Street that light up at night!

Every year the Haunted Mansion gets a special Halloween-Christmas overlay themed to the movie, the Nightmare before Christmas.  Each year they feature a special gingerbread house in the ghost dining room.

The Haunted Mansion

 Out in the back of the park, behind Big Thunder Mountain, is the round-up.  It is very nicely themed and a nice quite area of the park.

How cute is this buggy?

 They even have a special petting zoo.

This greets you on your way in/out of Mickey’s Parking Lot

I like how the pumpkins above the Mad Hatter shop are wearing hats!

In front of the Mexican restaurant, it is decorated for Dia de los Muertos

More day of the dead theme

Pocahontas, the donkey!

The cute area behind Big Thunder Mountain

Even themed inside the cabin!

Another cute buggy set up

Aside from the decorations, Space Mountain receives its Ghost Galaxy overlay (they just change the music and the lighting).  You can purchase special tickets for their Halloween party and go trick-or-treating in costume in the parks here. If I had a kid I think I would go trick-or-treating here as it provides a safe-environment with poison free candy (unless of course the Evil Witch from Snow White gives you something!)  j/k about the poison free candy part, pretty sure that’s an old wives tale.

They also have special limited-time food offerings that involve pumpkin. 

I highly recommend going if you are in the area!

    What a wonderful time to be at Disney.

    It's a treat to have you at Seasonal Sundays.

    It reminds me of the post you did on the festival in Germany–with a Mickey Mouse twist! Pumpkin Mickey Mouse makes me giggle!
