If you read my blogs, you know that Halloween is my favorite holiday. And you also know that Disneyland is one of my favorite places ever. This weekend I get to combine both of these at a blogger event celebrating the beginning of Halloween Time at Disneyland. I've always wanted to go to the Disneyland Resort during this time of year because I've heard how beautifully the parks are decorated: pumpkins everywhere, rides with a Halloween theme, even the characters walking around the park are dressed in costume! Can you imagine Winnie the Pooh dressed as a vampire? Also, the Disney villains are coming out of their coffins and making appearances throughout the park, which is something you never see during the rest of the year. I just know I'm going to take a million and one photos...... watch out for more Disney Halloween Time posts over the weekend and beyond: this is going to be one thrillin', chillin', killin' weekend!
Here's more information about Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort:
Disney villains will invade Disneyland park along with Mickey Mouse and his friends in Halloween costumes when Halloween Time returns to Disneyland Resort Sept. 17 through Oct. 31. Highlights of the Disneyland Halloween season include the return of Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy – the thrillingly “haunted” version of the popular Tomorrowland attraction – and the longtime favorite Haunted Mansion Holiday, in which Halloween and Christmas collide for an attraction inspired by “Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas.” Guests will also enjoy the new, nighttime water spectacular “World of Color,” performing nightly at Disney California Adventure park.
Halloween Time offers families a chance to enjoy seasonal attractions and décor, as well as interact with beloved Disney characters decked out in whimsical Halloween costumes. Guests will also experience spooky fun with Disney’s more sinister characters, the Disney Villains. In addition, the private-party celebration that has been so popular with guests will return for 10 special nights in October as Mickey’s Halloween Party.
Halloween Time offers frightfully delightful fun for children and adults.
* For spine-tingling fun, drop in at The Twilight Zone™ Tower of Terror at Disney California Adventure park, where a “supernatural” event happened on Halloween evening, 1939, forever haunting the building.
* Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland is transformed for the Pumpkin Festival. More than 300 pumpkins will be on display in shop windows and none of them are the same!
* Visitors to Big Thunder Ranch in Frontierland will find ranch animals, pumpkin carvers, Halloween décor and activities for youngsters, all presided over by Sheriff Woody.
* Meeting Disney characters will be easier than ever as Disney villains gather to plot Halloween mischief at “it’s a small world” Mall in Disneyland, while other characters in spooky attire greet guests in Town Square, Main Street, U.S.A.
