What is your favorite part of Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort? Tell us in the comments!


  • We spent the last two days at the park and the Haunted Mansion is always our favorite especially this time of year.. Decorations are absolutely beautiful and love all the new additions!!

  • Looks pretty, It’s a better idea to try the costume this year on halloween.

  • We rode yesterday! We waited 75 mins and it was worth it 100%! My three girls are 11 and under. They did not complain one time about the wait. They were so excited and the energy of Jack Sally fans was awesome!!!!! Ok, we get in, and as always we are in complete awe. We get to the gingerbread houses and we nearly faint!!!!!! OMG!!!!!! You smell gingerbread!!!!!! You get to the cemetery and see Sally’s beautiful face looking at Jack batting her big beautiful eyes!!!!!
    She is perfect!!!!!!! Our goal is, to ride once a week until Halloween!!!!!! YAY!!!!!! Thank you Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse!!!!!!

  • I rode yesterday. Really cool. For those who are wondering; Yes, Sally does have some movement. Her eyes blink and her leg moves (since she is leaning on a tombstone, one of her back legs gently swings.)

  • cool

  • Omg she is absolutely Adorable!! Thank you Disneyland Imagineers for making my dream come true of Sally finally having a part in Haunted Mansion Holiday!!! Can’t wait to see her in person!! ❤️

  • Disneyland has always been known for it’s atmosphere but what I love about Halloweentime is that the atmosphere almost impossibly increases tenfold! From the scent of pumpkin and gingerbread wafting throughout the park to the warm oranges and yellows encasing the buildings, Disneyland completing embraces both the fall and Halloween season. We are looking forward to our vacation in less than two weeks to enjoy all of this firsthand…and devour as many butterscotch beignets as humanly possible.

  • “Trick-or-Treat” it’s Halloween at Disneyland and you will see…
    Creepy creeps with eerie eyes…
    Start to shriek and harmonize!
    Lots of fun and spooky rides…
    Like Haunted Mansion, come inside!
    Jack Skelington is there…
    With all his friends to give a scare!!!

  • Yay!! We are heading over to the park tonight. Cannot wait to see the mansion, pumpkins and enjoy AP days!!

  • looks great, does she have any movement?

  • Looks good, we will be going in December at some point, this is always one of our favorites. Also does anyone know if they will be bringing back the Star Wars Overlay after Ghost Galaxy on space mountain? I had hoped to catch it before it went away.
