Halloween time at the Disneyland Resort

Halloween returns to Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure on September 7, 2018. Halloween is one of my favorite times to be in the parks besides Christmas so I can’t wait and I am so happy it is happening this soon!

Pretty soon after entering the gates of Disneyland you will soon see the Main Street Pumpkin. It will surely put you in a Fall and joyous mood. You can take photos in front of each side of the pumpkin with your own cameras or with a Photopass photographer. This is a very popular photo spot so be prepared to wait in line or get there early for some great shots!


One of the best parts of this frightfully fun time will be the revamped classic rides into Halloween themed ones. Haunted Mansion Holiday and Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy will also be available starting September 7, 2018. Haunted Mansion is one of my favorite rides at Disneyland and Haunted Mansion Holiday will always be a timeless favorite for me.


We have already started to see Halloween merchandise pop up throughout resort stores and I already purchased some! Some of my favorites so far include the headwear and the Halloween Countdown Calendar.

Character Meet & Greets:

You can expect to meet some of your favorite characters dressed up in Halloween Costumes at both Disneyland and California’s Adventure. Make sure you look up when you can meet them due to various time slots.

Special Events:

Mickey’s Halloween Party is a separately priced event that starts in September and has dates through October. This event includes trick or treating, a Fireworks show, and a Frightfully Fun Parade! Walt Disney World has its own party: Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party! I hope this blog post was informative and gets you excited for this upcoming Halloween Season!
