Last weekend we attended Mickey’s Halloween Party at the Disneyland Resort! This was our 4th year attending the not-so-spooky party and it’s something we all look forward to doing this time of year. In years past, the halloween festivities have been held at Disney’s California Adventure Park, however this year Mickey’s Halloween Party has moved across the way to the Disneyland park and it was a new and fun experience for all of us. My favorite part about Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort is that they only sell a small number of tickets to each nights event. That means you can walk right on to most rides with NO wait! It’s SO awesome!
This year Disney villains have invaded Disneyland Park, along with Mickey and all of his friends dressed up in Halloween costumes. Guests will have the opportunity to dress up in halloween costumes, walk through the park, stopping at “treat” stations along the way and filling up on yummy halloween treats! The decorations are truly amazing and halloween has dawned areas of the park throughout. Halloween music also immerses guests in the halloween time extravaganza and the Halloween Time Fireworks show is truly something to experience!
Two of the parks most popular rides have been transformed for the holiday: The Haunted Mansion and Space Mountain! The Haunted Mansion has been transformed by Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and the ride is filled with holiday decorations throughout. Space Mountain is also rockin’ the holidays with the return of Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy, featuring a thrilling haunted version of the ride.
