Whether you’re a fan of Halloween or not, I think we can all agree that Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort is truly filled with frightful fun. With festive décor, seasonal treats, themed ride-overlays and character appearances, Disneyland knows how to throw a Halloween celebration. This is why I’ve teamed up with my friends at Get Away Today to help you plan the most terrifying trip yet! If you already have a vacation planned or are thinking about traveling during Halloween Time this year, keep reading to find out everything you need to know about 2018 Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort.
2018 Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort
Themed Ride Overlays
One of the best parts about visiting Disneyland during Halloween Time is getting to experience all of your favorite attractions in a spooky new light. Now with seasonal ride-overlays in both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park, you’ll be able to have more fun than ever before. Because of this, I’ve listed all of the Halloween themed attractions you can enjoy below:
Haunted Mansion Holiday:
If you’re a fan of the Nightmare Before Christmas movie, then you’re sure to love Haunted Mansion Holiday. Jack Skellington and his Halloween Town crew take over this attraction to turn it into a festive nightmare. With new music, effects and character experiences, this ride is full of fun for the entire family. Because this ride-overlay is so popular, I would highly suggest getting a FastPass for this attraction.
Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy:
This beloved attraction also gets a makeover just in time for the spooky season. Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy lets you climb aboard a rocket racing through the haunted cosmos in outer space. With eerie encounters with star fields, meteors and a phantom force, you’ll want to brace yourself for this hair-raising ride. Since this attraction is a little scarier than other ride-overlays, I would suggest riding it first before bringing along your little ones.
California Adventure Park
Luigi’s Honkin’ Haul-O-Ween
In Cars Land, you’ll be able to find Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters transform into Luigi’s Honkin’ Haul-O-Ween. At this attraction, you’ll find frightfully fun music and dreadful dancing for the ultimate Halloween bash! This Halloween ride-overlay is perfect for everyone of all ages.
Mater’s Graveyard Jam-BOO-Ree
At this Halloween hoedown, you’ll be able to boo-step to a haunted harmony with Mater and his friends. Here, you’ll be able to sing along to catchy tunes like “Welcome to Radiator Screams” and “Monster Truck Smash.” Young vampires and witches alike will love this seasonal ride-overlay.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Monsters After Dark
Ever since Guardians of the Galaxy: Monsters After Dark debuted last year, it has easily become one of the most cherished Halloween attractions. What’s unique about this ride-overlay is that you’ll only be able to experience it once it gets dark. During the day, you can help the Guardians of the Galaxy escape the Collector’s Fortress. However, at night, Groot accidentally gets left behind, so you and your friends need to go rescue him again. But, beware! Monsters and other ghoulish creatures lurk around the fortress when the sun goes down.
To ensure you get to experience this attraction, we’d recommend getting a FastPass as soon as times become available for Guardians of the Galaxy: Monsters After Dark. Better yet, we’d suggest getting MaxPass to make it easier to snag a time. If not, you’ll be looking at waiting for about an hour or more for this holiday ride-overlay.
Seasonal Treats, Eats & Souvenirs
In addition to the fun, you’ll want to try the spectacular food items they have available during Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort. While they haven’t released their official list of eats quite yet, we’ve seen delicious treats like butterscotch flavored beignets, specialty caramel apples, haunted macarons, a Bat Sundae and more! Trust us, these snacks are so good you’ll scream!
Plus, you won’t want to miss out on all the spooktacular swag that’s offered during the celebration. Grab an Oogie Boogie Premium Popcorn Bucket, Cauldron Premium Popcorn Bucket, Poison Apple Glow Cube, Green Poison Apple Stein and lots more. Don’t forget to get limited-time Halloween-themed Minnie Ears either!
Halloween Time Décor
Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort is filled with boo-tiful Insta-worthy photo spots, sure to make your loved ones at home jealous of your ghoulish fun. To make sure you get the best Halloween Time pictures, I’ve listed all of my favorite photo spots below:
- Entrance to Disneyland Park – Disneyland Park
- Entrance to Disney California Adventure Park – Disney California Adventure Park
- Giant Mickey Pumpkin – Main Street, U.S.A., Disneyland Park
- Dia De Los Muertos – Frontierland, Disneyland Park
- Headless Horseman Statue – Buena Vista Street, California Adventure Park
- Carthay Circle Bats – Buena Vista Street, California Adventure Park
- Radiator Screams – Cars Land, California Adventure Park
You also won’t want to forget to get your picture with Mickey and his pals dressed up in Halloween Time garb. While their costumes change every year, it’s fun to see your favorite characters celebrate the occasion. Plus if you’re lucky, you can catch infamous Disney villains lurking around the park during Halloween Time too.
Mickey’s Halloween Party
If you can’t get enough of the frightful fun, you’ll want to consider buying tickets to Mickey’s Halloween Party. Although it is an additional cost to get in, this Halloween party is one you’ll never forget. Here, you can enjoy exclusive entertainment like the Frightfully Fun Parade, Halloween Screams Fireworks, appearances from vicious villains, and trick-or-treat stations around every corner. Since it is a separate ticketed event, you’ll also be able to ride some of the most popular attractions without a long wait! The best part? You can dress up in your favorite Halloween costume while experiencing all of the fun. To ensure that you don’t’ violate the Disneyland Resort’s costume guidelines, we’d recommended checking their website beforehand.
If you’re looking to attend Mickey’s Halloween Party in 2018, check out the party dates listed below:
- September 19th, 21st, 24th, 26th and 28th
- October 2nd, 5th, 9th, 12th, 16th, 19th, 23rd, 26th, 29th, 31st
For the most up-to-date pricing and availability for Mickey’s Halloween Party, be sure to visit Disneyland’s official website directly.
If you aren’t attending Mickey’s Halloween Party, don’t fret! Like I mentioned before, there is SO much to experience during Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort. However, I would highly recommend purchasing Park Hopper Tickets if you’re traveling during September or October. Since Disneyland Park shuts down early for Mickey’s Halloween Party, it’s nice to be able to head over to California Adventure Park for the remainder of the night. If 1-Park per Day Tickets are your thing, just make sure you plan out your trip accordingly, so you aren’t in Disneyland Park on the night of Mickey’s Halloween Party.
No matter what tickets you choose, you’re spell-bound to have a wonderful time during Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort. If you haven’t booked your spooktacular trip, make sure you book with Get Away Today. With discounted Disneyland tickets, hotel specials and a flexible Layaway Plan, traveling to The Happiest Place on Earth is more affordable than ever.
