If you know me, you know that I LOVE Disneyland! One of my favorite times at the Disneyland Resort is Halloween Time.


Disneyland doesn’t cheap out on anything when it comes to celebrating Halloween at the parks.


If you are wanting to visit Disneyland this fall, have my friends over at Get Away Today help you!

Halloween Décor at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park


First things first, the décor in the park is unbelievable during Halloween Time. Main Street, U.S.A. Will be lined with Jack-O-Lanterns for the annual Pumpkin Festival.


Take time to see each pumpkin, while munching on your own pumpkin flavored churro.

You can also snap a picture in front of the giant Mickey pumpkin placed right in the middle of the street.


Next, head over to Frontierland where you can see Dia de Los Muertos skeleton display along with face painting and yummy Mexican-style treats.

Disneyland isn’t the only one getting a spooky makeover this year. Halloween Time is making its way over to California Adventure to keep the festivities going!


Once you are greeted by Oogie Boogie and the Headless Horseman statue when you enter the park, head over to Cars Land.

Radiator Springs will be transforming into Radiator Screams, complete with your favorite Cars’ characters dressed in their own costumes!




Special Halloween-Themed Attractions


If you want more to add to your Halloween experience, check out all the rides that get eerie overlays to add to the magic.


Previously, only rides in Disneyland got makeovers for Halloween, but not anymore!


During Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort, you can experience Guardians of the Galaxy – Monsters After Dark!

Halloween ride overlays will also be featured in Cars’ Land. You can take a spin on Luigi’s Honkin’ Haul-o-ween and Mater’s Graveyard JamBOOree!


Then head over to Disneyland to ride the classic favorite rides like Haunted Mansion Holiday and Space Mountain: Ghost Galaxy.

Halloween Time Treats


Don’t stop at the spooky décor and ghostly rides, treat yourself to some ghoulish grub while you are at the parks.


If you want to try something a little sweet, there are plenty of options for you.

If you are interested, take a night and head to Oogie Boogie Bash-A Disney Halloween Party at Disney California Adventure Park!


This is a separate ticketed event through California Adventure where you and your little ones can dress up and trick-or-treat with all of your favorite characters.


You can see the Frightfully Fun Parade as well as Villainous! Which is a World-of-Color spooktacular hosted by Oogie Boogie himself!


You also have the chance to see some Disney villains you don’t normally get to see in the park.
