HalloweenTime at Disneyland, 2018

It's September, so you know what that means...Disneyland is ready for Halloween! Get your costumes on and open a bag of Halloween candy, because we're going to run down all of the spooky fun that's coming September 7!

Special Foods

This is always our favorite part so we're starting here! Below you'll find the amazing guide to HalloweenTime food that the Disney Food Blog put out. Both parks will have specialty fall/halloween churros! There are 10 distinct flavors to try and they all sound pretty incredible. There are special desserts (like a Black Rose at the Red Rose Taverne, Spider Bundt Cake at the French Market, Pumpkin Spice Funnel Cake Fries at Award Weiners), new meals to try (we're excited about the Anti Vampire Pizza at the Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta, Haunted Firehouse Chicken Sandwich at the Carnation Cafe, and the Musubi Special at the Bengal BBQ), and even some special drinks (we're looking at you Pumpkin Hard Cider at Bayside Brews, Green Apple Spell Lemonade at Smokejumpers Grill, and Caramel Apple Smoothie at Schmoozies!). What looks best to you?

Ride Overlays

All of the fun from last year is back! Over in Disneyland expect to see (our very favorite) Haunted Mansion Holiday as well as (not a fave, but still fun) Space Mountain: Ghost Galaxy. And check out this year's spider themed Gingerbread House in the Haunted Mansion!

There are more Halloween overlays in California Adventure! ALL of Carsland gets a spooky makeover, more on that in a bit, including special decorations and music for Mater's Graveyard JamBOOree and Luigi's Honkin' Haul-o-ween.

Head over to Guardian's of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout to see the super scary Monsters After Dark. Groot was left behind during the breakout during the day, and now you have to help Rocket get past all kinds of monsters to get him that ride wasn't scary enough???

Spooktacular Decorations

We were lucky enough to get to visit Disneyland during Halloween last year, and it was amazing! Scroll through for our fave decorations pics.

Adorable Jack O Lanterns surround the Partners statue on Main Street
The Halloween Tree is up in Frontierland!
Unique Jack O Lanterns decorate the shops all up and down Main Street. Elvis is my fave!
Of course, Haunted Mansion Holiday is one of the spookiest places in the park.
While there's no Matterhorn overlay for Halloween, the Halloween balloons really spook the place up, don't you think?
Oogie Boogie guides your way into California Adventure
Bats are tearing out of the tower above Carthay Circle!
Don't forget to see the Headless Horseman. And be sure to check him out at night for an extra spooky glow.
Speaking of night, purple trees are all along Buena Vista Street and in Carsland
Have a seat in a spider car, if you dare!
Halloween movies, Cars style!
Lightning and friends are in their costumes!
Head into Ramone's shop to see the Offrenda for Doc for Dia de los Muertos.
Villains' Tea

Brand new this year is the Villains' Tea Party at the Disneyland Hotel. "Trick or Tea" will run Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays through Halloween and will feature food and desserts inspired by the nastiest Disney villains. Make your reservations now because this might book up fast! Premium Party is $65 per adult, Classic Party is $52, and Children are $35 each.

Mickey's Halloween Party is back! On select nights from September 19-Halloween, you can see the exclusive Frightfully Fun parade (led by the Headless Horseman!), the Halloween Screams fireworks show, have a meet and greet with your favorite Disney Villains, and go trick or treating around the park. I've heard the candy haul is pretty amazing. Your ticket gives your entrance to BOTH parks 3 hours before the party starts (if you don't have tickets for that day already), but you can't get all day access with only the Halloween Party tickets.

Speaking of tickets, the Halloween Party sells out fast. As of writing this blog, every Friday night party is already sold out. BUT most other nights, including Halloween itself, are still available starting at $105.

**Keep in mind if you're visiting Disneyland during this time but NOT going to a Halloween party, Disneyland Park will close early, so plan to be over at DCA during party time.
