Practically every inch of Disneyland has been transformed to a Fall/Halloween wonderland and it is amazing! Last week we spent an afternoon going on rides and an evening of fun at Mickey’s Halloween Party! This is a great event for the kiddos to get in the Halloween spirit without any scares.
The coolest part is that you are welcome and encouraged to dress in costumes! Pete and I went as a normal mom and dad, aka we didn’t dress up, but the girls all did. Now that my oldest is 13 you might think that she wouldn’t get as into it as the littler ones, but that is not the case at all. Disney brings out the fun in everyone, regardless of age and she looks forward to this every year. If you are a people watcher, this is for you. I am amazed at the costumes that people wear. The coordinated costumes are out of this world. I saw Peter Pan and Wendy. All 7 dwarfs and Sleeping Beauty. The whole cast of Cinderella and so much more. I could have just sat on a bench and watched everyone go by, and been in awe. Mickey’s Halloween Party puts Pinterest to shame, if you know what I mean!
This year we had a Gymnast, Alice in Wonderland and Princess Merida!
Can you see all the Halloween trimmings all over? So magical! At every turn there are huge pumpkins and not so scary Mickey Ghosts! Once the party starts there are trick or treat stations throughout the park! This year we only went to a couple. There are so many opportunities to load up on healthy treats and candy alike, but we were more interested in rides and seeing all the decorations.
Can I go off subject for a moment? I’m sure you have heard that The Little Mermaid was re-released today… Disney’s California Adventure has a fabulous Little Mermaid Ride that we go on 500 times each time we visit. <— Slight exaggeration. Be sure to hop over there on your next visit. It’s really well done and there are never any lines.
The FOOD! We snacked on cookies all day and other yummy Halloween inspired treats!
The lake around Tom Sawyers Island was spooky and eery! We even saw a performance by some Halloween Carolers singing “This is Halloween” from a boat!
We finished the night with a breathtaking fireworks show. “Someone” had the best seat in the house!
Tips: There is still time to get tickets to Mickey’s Halloween Party, but you must hurry and buy them quickly. Party nights sell out and I don’t want anyone to miss out on the fun! There are tons of photo opportunities and my favorite is right when you walk into Disneyland. A bunch of your favorite villains rotate so check back often. There is also a really big decorated pumpkin to take a family photo with! Don’t forget to snack on the seasonal specialties like the cookies and also enjoy all the rides.
