Each year, we look forward to the fun of trick or treating around Disneyland during Mickey’s Halloween Party. This year the party is bigger and better than ever. We had the opportunity to attend night one of the party and had the absolute time of our lives.
It’s a party like no else. I think one of my favorite things to do is to trick or treat throughout Disneyland Park. There are 10 trick or treat trails to take your kiddies to, with choices of candy or healthy snacks at each one. I love that the kiddos can get candy and yummie healthy treats. The trails are organized and the lines movie quickly. Your kiddos will want to hit each of the 10 trails.
I do have to say that although I love every aspect of Mickey’s Halloween Party, my absolute favorite part is the Halloween Screams firework show, which is only available during Mickey’s Halloween Party. It is my favorite firework show at Disneyland. Yes, I think I love it even more than the Christmas firework show. It is magical!
One thing we all look forward to during Mickey’s Halloween Party and during Halloween Party at the Disneyland Resort is all of yummie seasonal treats. This year there are so many tasty treats to choose from. We had the opportunity to try most of these delish treats and I can’t wait to go back for more!
Our advise is to arrive early! You are allowed to enter the park as early as 4:00 pm, even though the event doesn’t start until 6:00 or 7:00 pm, depending on the night you attend. If you’re planning to eat dinner in the park, we suggest you eat during those early hours before the event truly begins. This was you can spend those remaining hours to experience all the Halloween fun. Additionally, there are some great seasonal menu items available at certain restaurants as well as treats in the Candy Palace. Our must have treat this time of the year is the pumpkin fudge. It always sells out fast, so try to see if there is any available as soon as you arrive inside the park. If they run out at the Candy Palace, check out the Pooh Corner Bakery in Critter Country, as they carry it too.
Be sure to catch Mickey’s Costume Party Cavalcade! The parade is fun to watch and happens shortly after the Fireworks show. I love watching my kids watch the parade. There is something so magical about Disney parades, and Mickey’s Costume Cavalcade is definitely magical!
No visit to Disneyland during Halloween Time can be complete without a visit to Haunted Mansion Holiday. There are fast passes available for the ride. Another tip is to head over there first when you arrive in the park. Grab Fast Passes for later in the evening and then jump in line right after after getting the Fast Passes. This way you can experience it twice without much of a wait.
We had a great time and stayed until closing time. I captured this shot on the way out of the park. I bought the kiddos a hot chocolate and they sat for a bit taking it all in. They were two very tired, but very happy kiddos.
