A Tale of Two Halloween Parties

The Disneyland Resort in Southern California goes all out for their 'Halloween Time' celebration! When entering Disneyland Park, you will be greeted with by the famous ‘Mickey Planter’ as it’s transformed into a canvas of pumpkins and even Mickey is wearing a mask for the celebration. You'll see oversized pumpkin versions of Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Pluto and Goofy on display.

Main Street will be the site of the "Pumpkin Festival".

In Town Square there's the 12 foot high Mickey ‘jack-o-lantern’ complete with pumpkin ears. Main Street USA also features over 300 carved pumpkins on display in the shop windows. Colorful orange and yellow bunting will adorn the Victorian architecture. Surrounding the ‘Partners’ statue of Walt and Mickey will be pumpkins inspired by Disney characters.

The Haunted Mansion has been transformed into a Tim Burton ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’ theme.  If you’ve never seen the Haunted Mansion Holiday make sure to include it in your plans this holiday season, you won’t be sorry!

Disneyland offers a Halloween fireworks show!  "Halloween Screams" that features Jack Skellington as the show's host. The characters will have a different look when they join in the spirit of the season and appear in their Halloween costumes. Of course, the Disney Villains will be out in full force at both parks to celebrate their favorite time of year.

'Twas a long time ago,
   Even longer now than it seems,

In a place that perhaps
   You've seen in your dreams

For the story that you are about to be told
   Began with the holiday worlds of old

I know you're curious to see what's inside
    It's what happens when two holidays collide
