Halloween Time at Disneyland
Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resorts in Anaheim is always so much fun! We went recently and enjoyed all of the Halloween decorations and special Hallloween treats as well as all the rides that we always enjoy. One of our favorites at Halloweentime is the Haunted Mansion which is taken over by Jack Skellington and his crew. The mansion undergoes a transformation to Tim Burton's "Nightmare before Christmas" with lots of spooky characters and spooky music.
The Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, altars in Frontierland are one of my favorite displays to see during this time of year. A Mexican tradition which is a fascinating and festive display of color and culture with altars, sugar skulls, marigolds, and favorite foods and drinks to honor the deceased.
Also during this time of year is a visit from some of Disney's favorite villains; Cruella de Vil, Malificent, and Captain Hook!
The whole park is decorated in Halloween decor. Starting on Main Street you are greeted with a giant pumpkin and hundreds of pumpkins and other fall and spooky items to get you in the mood for Halloween. We enjoyed some yummy Halloween cookies and cupcakes while there.
Space Mountain Galaxy is also spookified, as if it could be any scarier!
Lots of great fun to be had at Disneyland and California Adventure. And, don't miss out on Mickey's Halloween Party. Advanced tickets are required and it's on limited days, see website for details. It includes a special Halloween Screams Holiday Fireworks Spectacular, entrance to the park, photos with villains, Costume party, candy stations, Pirate Palooza, Space Jam hi-energy dance party, Space Mountain ghost galaxy and Haunted Mansion holiday, and more....
Have fun and have a great Halloweentime!
