Halloween Attractions in Disneyland Great for the Entire Family

Halloween, of course, is on October 31, but Disneyland will be celebrating the spooky holiday from September 9 to October 31. As can be guessed, Disneyland will pull out all the stops in terms of decorations; there will be pumpkins and orange lights everywhere. There will also be plenty of events:

Mickey’s Halloween Party
Mickey’s Halloween Party will be held on 13 select nights from September 23 until Halloween. Depending on the date, it will start at 6 or 7 p.m. Highlights of the Party include the Frightfully Fun Parade, the HalloScreams fireworks display, and character meet and greets. The parade includes spooky characters like ones from “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas” and a bevy of villains including Hades and the Evil Queen. At the Villain’s Square, guests may meet, greet and get their pictures taken with their favorite Disney villain. From September 23 on, the Cadaver Dans, a barbershop quartet of zombies will perform in Frontierland.

Guests may wear costumes, and kids can go trick or treating.

Haunted Mansion Holiday
The Haunted Mansion gets a Halloween- and Christmas-themed makeover that lasts from September 9 until early 2017. It will be open from 9 a.m. until (fittingly) midnight. The Holiday will be hosted by Jack Skellington and other characters from “Nightmare Before Christmas,” and they will have decorated the Mansion with pumpkins and wreaths.

Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy
The venerable ride Space Mountain also gets a sinister makeover in honor of Halloween. It gets suitably spooky music and lighting, and riders see ghostly aliens – or should that be alien ghosts? Older riders may find it reminiscent of old-time horror movies.

Dia de los Muertos Celebration
Mexico’s “Day of the Dead” comes to Zocalo Park in Frontierland from September 9 to November 1. The celebration honors deceased loved ones. There will be a musical trio of calacas or skeleton figures and a variety of seasonal decorations. The Rancho del Zocalo Restaurante will offer pumpkin flan and other traditional foods. From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., guests can enjoy Calaveras-style face painting. The Halloween Tree is an homage to the late Ray Bradbury, an author and die-hard Disney fan.

If you’re considering taking a trip out to Disneyland this September and October, be sure to check out the great accommodations, whether it’s staying on site or off site, like at a vacation rental from www.lunamarvacationhomes.com!
