CarsLand Rules Halloween

In the last couple of years, California Adventure has really stepped up their Halloween game. From the steaming Headless Horseman statue to the purple lights in front of the bat infested Carthay Circle, its the place to be for a spooky vibe. But best of all, is CarsLand! We had a team over at DCA last weekend taking pics of all the amazing Halloween fun, so follow along and see why we think CarsLand is the winner of Halloween this year.

Have a happy Haul-O-Ween! A new welcome sign greets you as you enter CarsLand.
A monster face with sharp cone teeth hangs over the street to watch over you.

Hang out in the spider car over at Flo's.
Mater's Graveyard JamBOOree has all different Halloween themed music, and some spooky messages on the grills of old cars while you wait in line.

And our favorite tractor is dressed as a mummy! (A "moomy?" Is that too much?)
Luigi and Guido have Halloween music ready for their ride too. It's Luigi's Honkin' Haul-O-Ween!

Sarge has a gas can pumpkin patch and a spider clinging on to the side of his garage.

The cones aren't looking too cozy this time of year!

Mater is greeting guests in his Halloween costume!
Lizzie's store has to be the spookiest of them all. She really went all out!

She's even ready for kids to come Trunk or Treat!
Want to see a Halloween movie? The residents of CarsLand are looking forward to Hocus Spokus!
This amazing sugar skull car is out in front of Ramone's store.

Inside Ramone's is a Dia de los Muertos ofrenda for Doc! I love it!

 What do you all think? Does CarsLand take the (spooky) cake, or what?

Where in Disneyland: Lights!

Welcome to the second edition of our "Where in Disneyland?" game!

As Disney lovers, we always pay attention to our amazingly detailed surroundings when we're in Disneyland. But, how many of us take the time to look up at the fixtures lighting our way? Let's put it to the test!

We play on the honor system, so scroll through and see how many you know before checking out our answers below. No cheating! Then hit us up in the comments and let us know how you did. (And if you missed out on our first edition, check it out here.)

Ready?? Let's play!
















Ready for the answers?? Just scroll down...

1. Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters (Started you off easy with a planet shaped light!)
2. Boardwalk Pizza and Pasta/Paradise Garden Grill outdoor eating area
3. Radiator Springs Racers queue
4. Alice in Wonderland
5. Flo's (Anyone else want to just eat there all day every day and watch the cars on Racers zoom by?)
6. Tiki Room exit
7. Little Mermaid exit (can you spot the hidden Mickey in this one??)
8. Carnation Cafe (I LOVE these! They're so old school, they look like Walt or Lilian Disney might have picked them out themselves.)
9. Fillmore's (A little obvious with the peace sign, right?)
10. Near the Royal Veranda Cafe (Address is 50 Royal Street, I'm guessing! I love how everything on Royal Street has an address.)
11. Elias & Co. shop on Buena Vista Street (Ok, that was a hard one!)
