Disneyland Resort is about to get frightfully fun, as the Halloween season will come to life at the parks once again starting Sept. 3!
From Sept. 3 – Oct. 31, guests can enjoy Halloween Time at both Disneyland park and Disney California Adventure, complete with the return of Halloween-themed ride overlays, encounters with Disney characters and villains, and of course all the spooky décor and delicious treats you expect. Downtown Disney District will also get into the spirit with themed décor, seasonal treats, and an all-new Halloween-themed pumpkin hunt called “Pluto’s Pumpkin Pursuit.”
Strolling down Main Street, U.S.A. will be dotted with the familiar sight of the Mickey Mouse jack-o-lantern and the Main Street Pumpkin Festival. Disney characters will show up in their Halloween best, and Haunted Mansion Holiday will see the characters from “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas” return for happy haunts.
Every night from Sept. 3 – Oct. 31, guests can enjoy “Halloween Screams,” a projection and special effects show; on the weekends, guests can enjoy the show with fireworks.
Disney California Adventure
Favorite attractions will be transformed under the spell of Oogie Boogie for the Halloween season. In Cars Land, Radiator Springs will become Radiator Screams, where residents decorate their homes for Haul-O-Ween and transform the attractions. Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree will become Mater’s Graveyard JamBOOree, and Luigi’s Rolickin’ Roadsters will change into Luigi’s Honkin’ Haul-O-Ween.
The façade of Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT will spark at night when the attraction transforms into Guardians of the Galaxy – Monsters After Dark, a spooky adventure full of creepy creatures and thrilling drops.
On Buena Vista Street, Mickey Mouse and friends will be dressed up in old-fashioned Halloween costumes, and the street will be decked out in seasonal décor. In addition, the 10-foot-tall statue of the Headless Horseman will return.
Also in Disney California Adventure, Plaza de la Familia will return to Paradise Gardens from Sept. 3 – Nov. 2. This limited-time celebration is inspired by Día de los Muertos, complete with live entertainment, food, crafts and interactive experiences. Performing several times daily will be “A Musical Celebration of Coco,” a street show honoring the Disney and Pixar film. Other offerings will include Mariachi music at Paradise Gardens Bandstand, The World of Coco art exhibit, a photo-op with a hand-animated figure of Miguel, and the iconic Arbol de la Vida (Tree of Life) photo location and memory wall.
Oogie Boogie Bash – A Disney Halloween Party
On 25 select nights starting Sept. 9 and running through Oct. 31, the separately-ticketed after-hours Oogie Boogie Bash – A Disney Halloween Party will return to Disney California Adventure. At the party, guests of all ages can trick-or-treat their way through the park in costume and encounter all kinds of characters.
At this limited-capacity event, guests can enjoy treat trials, the “Frightfully Fun Parade,” Villain’s Grove at the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail, “Mickey’s Trick & Treat” show, and more.
Tickets for Oogie Boogie Bash will go on sale starting Tuesday, July 13, no earlier than 9 a.m. PT at Disneyland.com/OogieBoogieBash.
