We’re getting ready for Halloween here at the Disneyland Resort, and many guests’ favorite part of the season is Mickey’s Halloween Party at Disneyland park. I recently spoke with Carla Carlile, Show Director for Mickey’s Halloween Party, to get a sneak peek of what we can look forward to at the party.
“Mickey’s Halloween Party will have the same fun and spooky but not-too-scary atmosphere,” said Carla, who added that this year’s party will feature new elements, like new trick-or-treat locations to explore. “Party guests will be able to explore areas of the park that they haven’t had the chance to explore before,” she said.
And even though Pirates of the Caribbean is closed for refurbishment, Carla tells us that pirates will be taking over Frontierland at Mickey’s Halloween Party. Jack Sparrow will be there along with Goofy, Pluto, Chip, Dale and Pluto, who will lead guests in a variety of pirate games.
There’s plenty for the little monsters, too, with a special pirate treasure map coloring area and meet-and-greets with Phineas and Ferb – the first time at the Disneyland Resort! Here’s what else Mickey’s Halloween Party guests can look forward to:
- Mickey’s Costume Party Cavalcade – 8:30 and 10:30 each night
- Halloween Screams fireworks spectacular – 9:30 each night
- Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy and Haunted Mansion Holiday
- Admission to Disneyland park up to 3 hours prior to the party
- Meet-and-greets with Disney Villains
- Treat stations with candy and healthy goodies
And don’t forget your costumes! Carla told me that her favorite part of Mickey’s Halloween Party is “seeing families come together, dressed up and experiencing Halloween as a family.” Halloween Party runs on select nights starting September 30 through October 31. Click here to purchase tickets.
