Five frightfully fun ways to enjoy Halloween at the Disneyland Resort hotels

by Brittani Tuttle

The hotels of the Disneyland Resort are getting in on the spooky Halloween fun this year, and we’ve got five fun ways for you to extend your Halloween Time experience before or after a great day at the parks.


Celebrate Halloween in or out of the parks at the Disneyland Resort!

Enjoy the Spook-tacular Seasonal Décor

In the lobby of Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, a fang-tastic edible display of pumpkins can be seen.


These pumpkins feature the ghostly apparition of Oogie Boogie, and are built from cereal treats, icing, chocolate, and fondant. Disneyland’s pastry chefs used over 200 pounds of icing, 100 pounds of chocolate, and 300 pounds of fondant to create the display, which features 13 hidden Mickeys!


Other dreary decorations can be found surrounding the Disneyland Hotel, and Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel features a fun pirate theme. The pirates have hoisted their Jolly Roger flag in the lobby, and invite all buccaneers for fun at “Pirates Pier”.

Exclusive Trick-or-Treating for Hotel Guests

On select afternoons from Oct. 2-31, overnight guests of the Disneyland Resort hotels are invited to take part in complimentary trick-or-treating festivities. Disney’s Grand Californian, the Disneyland Hotel and Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel will have a treat map of locations for little ghosts and goblins to visit.

The hotels are offering fun activities for kids like coloring pages, bat mask decorating, and create-your-own pirate hats. Cookie decorating kids are also available for an additional fee. Hotel guests can sign up for the trick-or-treating experience at the Guest Services desk.

Surprise Your Family with an In-Room Pumpkin Bucket

Plan a sweet Halloween treat (no tricks!) with this gift delivered right to your Disneyland Resort hotel room. The Halloween Treats Pumpkin Bucket can be specially arranged with Disney Floral & Gifts cast members to be perfect for your favorite ghoul.


The delivery begins with a light-up Mickey pumpkin bucket filled with delicious treats, a one-of-a-kind Halloween-themed keepsake, and a Mickey Mouse pumpkin light-up lanyard.

Taste Yummy Halloween Treats

At Disney’s Grand Californian, guests can find a holiday cart in the lobby offering some sweet and scary Mickey-shaped cookies featuring Halloween-inspired decorations. The cart will also have Halloween whoopee pies, jumbo cake pops, pretzel rods, a cookie box with Witch Finger cookies, and pumpkin pound cake.


At The Coffee House at the Disneyland Hotel, guests can find a delicious chocolate Bat Cookie. At all three hotels, the Red Poison Apple Glow Cube is available at restaurant and quick service locations. The flavors of fall have arrived alongside the spooky tastes of Halloween, as Pumpkin Spice Lattes can be found at Surfside Lounge at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel, and Pumpkin Muffins can be found at The Coffee House at the Disneyland Hotel.

See Spooky Musical Entertainment

Ghostly a capella performers, the Skeletones and the Cryptix, can be found strolling and performing through the hotels of the Disneyland Resort.


Guests can also enjoy the harmonies of the Scareolers in Downtown Disney, as they perform tunes like “I Put a Spell on You” and “Grim Grinning Ghosts.”
