When Halloween Time returns to Disneyland Resort this Friday, there’s going to be something new at the Halloween Carnival over at Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree in Frontierland.

This season, a bit of Halloween magic will appear on the Jamboree stage to amaze you with feats of illusion and sleight-of-hand. You’ll be delighted by the juggling antics of Zester the Jester and astounded by incredible illusions and surprises from the carnival’s Master Magician. You may even get a glimpse of your future courtesy of Madame Beauchance, a comical fortune teller.


All around the Halloween Carnival you’ll find fun for the whole family, with favorite Disney characters in Halloween costumes, Mickey’s Mask-Parade, amazing pumpkin carving demonstrations, carnival-style games and activities, Halloween merchandise, and yummy treats! And don’t forget the astounding “Conjure A Villain” sideshow tent. Dare to venture inside, and you may be asked to help cast a magic spell, summoning a Disney Villain from his or her realm to meet your group before returning them to worlds beyond.

The Halloween Carnival at Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree sounds like a real scream! The fun starts September 12 and continues through October 31. Please check the park Times Guide for daily operating schedules.


  • Was terribly disappointed that the carnival wasn’t open during our Halloween Party experience on October 6th.

  • We are trying to book dining at Big Thunder BBQ for the first week December and Blue Bayou as well. I was told bty dining that they both may not be open at that time, is this true? If it is its very disappointing.

  • Are you able to enjoy the Halloween carnival show even if not eating at the barbeque?

  • Will this be taking place during regular park hours only or will we be able to enjoy during the Halloween Party hours?

    • Angela – The Halloween Carnival is open during regular park hours.
