Disneyland is a great place to visit for a family vacation, no matter the time of year. If you are looking to add to the magic on your next visit to Disneyland, take a trip during Halloween Time! The extra festive touches make this fall escape one to remember. I’ve put together the ultimate guide to Disneyland during Halloween Time to let you in on all the best tips for your trip.
#1: Book with a reputable Disneyland provider
When booking your Halloween Time Disneyland trip, it is very important to book through someone trustworthy. There are discount tickets available on the internet, but most of the time they shouldn’t be trusted. Get Away Today is the best (and my favorite) place to turn to when looking for discount Disneyland tickets! They have tickets that are discounted off the gate price, along with low hotel rates, making your trip not only magical, but affordable. If you book a two or more-night package with two tickets, you can even get an additional $10 off by using promo code TwoGeeks.
#2: Check out the spooktacular décor in the park
Disneyland goes all-out when decorating the parks, and Halloween Time is no different! With festive additions throughout the park, every turn you take will be delightfully frightful. Some can’t miss decorations include the annual Pumpkin Festival on Main Street, U.S.A. where you can find hand-carved jack-o-lanterns lining the streets. Don’t forget to snap a photo with the giant Mickey pumpkin while you are there!
If you are in Frontierland, stop by the Dia de los Muertos celebration where you can find hand-painted skeletons and yummy Mexican treats. You can also get your face painted while celebrating the Day of the Dead in the Happiest Place on Earth!
This year, Disneyland park isn’t the only park getting a spooky makeover. California Adventure is joining in on the frightening fun and will be decked out in all things Halloween. Oogie Boogie will greet you as you enter the park, demanding that Halloween lasts forever! Bats will surround Carthay Circle Theater and a statue of the Headless Horseman will be on Buena Vista Street.
Cars Land is also going to be a part of the fun when Radiator Springs turns into Radiator Screams. The town will be decorated in its Haul-O-ween best. You can check out your favorite town shops like Filmore’s yard of ghostly folk art and Sarge’s pump-kin patch. Don’t forget about Flo’s V8 Café covered in cobwebs and other fun décor. Your favorite Cars characters will even be in costume! This really is a can’t miss – first ever display!
#3: Take a spin on the haunting rides with overlays
Not only do the parks get eerie elements added, but some of your favorite rides get overlays as well. Take a ride on Space Mountain: Ghost Galaxy for a spooky galactic ride and Haunted Mansion Holiday where you can see your favorite characters from The Nightmare Before Christmas. Both of these rides have a Fastpass available, so while you are waiting for your return time, check out the decked out rides in Cars Land! You can hang out with Mater on Mater’s Graveyard JamBOOree and with Luigi on Luigi’s Honkin’ Haul-O-Ween! Now this is fun you won’t want to miss out on.
#4: Treat yourself to some ghoulish grub
Everyone knows that Disneyland has the yummiest snacks, and they really step up their game during Halloween Time. You can munch on a pumpkin churro, a butterscotch beignet or even a Mickey bat cookie. Whichever you decide to sink your teeth in, it’ll satisfy any sweet tooth.
