During the Halloween season, Disneyland is transformed with fall colors and unique hand carved pumpkins. But that is not all — there are also seasonal attractions that can only be experienced during Halloween Time.
Halloween Time Rides
- Haunted Mansion – Step up to the gates of the Haunted Mansion for a visit with the residents of Halloween Town from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas as The Haunted Mansion is transformed into a Haunted Mansion Holiday.

Mickey’s Halloween Party
In addition to The Disneyland Resort being decorated for Halloween Time, you can also attend a special Trick or Treat event on select nights after the park closes to the public. This event requires a separate ticket, but you are allowed to enter the park up to three hours before the fun begins and you get complimentary parking for one vehicle.
During Mickey’s Halloween Party your kiddos will get to Trick or Treat around Disneyland Park, as well as attend Monsters U Dance Party at Tomorrowland Terrace. In traditional Disney style there is also a special Halloween Parade and the “Halloween Screams” Fireworks Spectacular.
If you are thinking about going to Mickey’s Halloween Party then you should scoop up your tickets soon because dates are selling out quickly.
