Halloween Time Takes Over the Hotels of the Disneyland Resort

Once again this year, the hotels of the Disneyland Resort have gone all out to celebrate Halloween Time.

At Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, Oogie Boogie is taking over the lobby with a huge confectionary masterpiece made with 260 pounds of powdered sugar, 380 eggs, 220 pound of riced cereal, 95 pounds of marshmallow, 80 pounds of butter, 200 pounds of chocolate, and 480 pounds of fondant.


The structure took 370 hours to design and build. To learn more about it, you can chat with one of the pastry chefs from 3:00pm to 3:30pm on Wednesdays and Sundays through Halloween.

Also in the lobby, you’ll find a seasonal treat cart full of cookies, crispy treats, whoopie pies, and more. The selection changes each week.


Down at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel, Ursula from The Little Mermaid has taken over the lobby and glass elevator.


The Disneyland Hotel is still paying tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Haunted Mansion in their lobby.


If you’re staying at any of those hotels, don’t forget that you can order special in-room celebrations through Disney Floral & Gifts. The Halloween packages range from a simple Halloween treats pumpkin bucket to a fully decorated room, complete with door sash, blanket, pumpkin bucket, plush and more.


During October, guests staying at the hotels will be able to go trick-or-treating on select afternoons. Sign up for the complimentary activity and grab a map at the Guest Services desk.

For even more fun, hotel guests can take part in a free hour-long class to learn more about the animation cel process, and during the Halloween season, paint Ursula or Captain Hook. The class is held at the Paradise Pier Hotel, but is open to guests from all three hotels. Pre-registration is required.


Finally, don’t miss the Skeletones, a strolling a cappella group that will be haunting the Disneyland Resort hotels.

For more, take a look at what Allie Kawamoto Choy, a project manager for Disneyland Resort Lodging Experience Integration, has to say:
