  • if thickets for Oct 26th are sold out can I get them somewhere else? or maybe use the daily pass?

  • Thanks, Erin, for giving us a taste of what we can expect!!!!

  • We are going on the 15th!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOO HUUUUUUUUU!!!!!

  • The Cadaver Dans were a personal highlight of my group. My 8 year old son could not believe that was really them singing (he was impressed to say the least)

  • I like the “Mickey’s Not-so-Scarey” theme used, and am assured that my grandchildren can look forward to a safe, fun, and well thought out Halloween party! Thank you in advance!!

  • Remember when you told us about the Beast Library update? I really would like to know if it will be made to the one in Hollywood Studios. That would be great!

  • Thank you for the photos Erin. I”m going to Mickey”s Halloween Party for the first time this year!

  • We went in Orlando a couple years ago, and it was a ton of fun. We loved the shorter ride lines, and the kids loved the candy and dressing up (we had a Tinkerbell and Harry Potter with us). I only wish I thought of bringing our costumes. Mom and dad love to dress up, too!

    We also liked it because we planned the night at the Halloween party as a down day. We enjoyed the Disney hotel’s pool and just relaxing all day, and then made it out to the park for the party at night and probably did as much as we could have all day. Super cool!

  • I’m supper excited for going! This will be my first time going during Halloween! I will be there in 21 days!!! I can’t wait for the Halloween party! Can’t wait to see everything!

  • Looking forward to the character meet n greets of the characters you don’t ger to see in the park regulary, Since I have not been yet (on the 19th), Looking forward to the new things, Have heard great things about the Cadaver Dans. and seeing Jack Sparrow, Maleficent again.

  • We attended opening night and it was our first time going to this incredible party! The rides were practically all walk-ons, the Trick or Treat trails were stocked with candy and healthy treats, the dance party at Tomorrowland Terrace was great fun – especially dancing with Buzz Lightyear! But our favorite part had to be the incredible Fireworks show! If you have the opportunity to go – it’s definitely worth it – we would go again in a heartbeat!

  • My family and I went a few years back when it was at California Adventure. We had a blast. Four of us went, and all four of us came back with a bag and a half full of candy. We had a total of six bags of candy come home with us!! It got so bad, I would take a whole bunch with me to school and share it everyone at school. There were like no waits for rides so we basically walked right on to Tower of Terror. If you’ve never been, its definitely a great experience. I mean, where else can you say “I trick or treated with Mickey and the gang on Halloween?”

  • I love all the character meet and greets and decorations in the dark

  • I love EVERYTHING about Halloween Time at Disneyland, and Mickey’s Halloween Party is the cherry on top. I loved everything about it, but I think the biggest takeaway from it will totally be meeting Maleficent. My favorite villain of all time! She is too cool. Love the villains, ha ha.
