Halloween at Disneyland

Happy October brunch babes! It is officially Halloween season (for the rest of the world). If you didn’t already know I am obsessed with Halloween and always have been. The costumes, the decor, the parties, the movies… everything about it is great. I have so many fun things planned to share with you this month as we celebrate my favorite time of year.

Halloween at DIsneyland

You all know I love Disney and Disney Parks do Holidays right! Halloween is no exception and keeping with tradition is my favorite holiday at the parks. Don’t get me wrong I love Christmas, but I feel like Halloween kicks off the season of holiday celebrations.

Disneyland gets fully decked out for Halloween with amazing decorations all around the parks. My cousin and I went down to Anaheim for a Halloween day where we wanted to experience all the spooky goodness.

Haunted Mansion Holiday

First and foremost, Jack Skellington “wrecks the halls” of the Haunted Mansion when the Nightmare Before Christmas takes over. This amazing overlay celebrates when two holidays collide. Disneyland aficionados will note that there are a few new surprises every year in the overlay and a new gingerbread house in the ghost dance party scene. Bonus it smells like gingerbread.

In addition to the overlay at The Haunted Mansion… Space Mountain gets to join in on the fun with Ghost Galaxy. Basically a space ghost is chasing you around outer-space. It is very fun and always something we look forward to every year.

If you roll with my crew at Disney then you know that food and drinks are just as important as the rides. The Spooktini available at Carthay Lounge and Cove Bar was on our Halloween hit list especially since it comes with a poison apple. Sorry Snow – this time we are siding with the villains┬ábecause this is awesome.


I will have so much more fun to share with you as we near the night of all hallows eve. But a few sneaks include Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, Universal Halloween Horror Nights, and a few more tricks up my sleeve.

Let me know in the comments what you have planned for October?

  • Awesome photos! I’ve always thought fall and winter at Disneyland are especially magical<3 The Spooktini is too cute!

  • Danielle Knapp

    I long to go to Disneyland, and even more so at Halloween time because the decorations look way cooler than the ones here at Disney World. So awesome!

  • I’ve always wanted to go to Disneyland for the Halloween festivities! Tokyo Disney Sea is also on my list… Someday! I just love your first photo of Jack Skellington XD I’ll definitely be doing my annual viewing of Nightmare Before Christmas this month!
