As a WDW person, I've heard many amazing things about Disneyland's Halloween celebrations. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to experience them yet, but don't worry! Guest Blogger Lisa Robertson from Babes in Disneyland has written a fantastic article about bringing families and little ones to Halloween celebrations to the Disneyland Resort!
Disneyland is known for its magic and fun throughout the year, but many fans may not know that Halloween time has become one of the most popular seasons. In mid September each year, Disneyland is transformed into a fall wonderland filled with festive décor, mouth-watering special foods and more pumpkins than you can shade a candy corn at.
Families with Disney babies can make truly incredible memories with their little ones. Halloween can be tough because the events and festivities that go along with the holiday are often frightening for young children. Disneyland has it dialed in just right with just the right amount of scary and spooky mixed with great fun for the entire family. From pumpkin carving, art and game activities and petting goats and sheep at Big Thunder Ranch to becoming a pirate at the new Pirates League, Disneyland offers a lot of truly remarkable experiences for young children this time of year.

To make the Halloween season even more special for Disneyland fans, the Park offers a special separate-ticket Halloween event each year called Mickey’s Halloween Party. On these days, the park closes a little early and guests attending this fun and “not-so-spooky” evening get to experience Halloween in a way only Disneyland could imagine. Party goers get to trick-or-treat throughout the park in costume, experience the “Halloween Screams” fireworks spectacular hosted by “Master of Scare-omonies” Jack Skellington, attend dance parties throughout the park, meet unique characters at fun photo locations throughout the park, experience “Mickey’s Costume Party” cavalcade and much, much more!
