Halloweentime at Disneyland

IMG_9695

Last weekend my younger son and I took our pals to check out all the fun for Halloweentime at Disneyland and California Adventure as guests of the resort.  We spent a lot more time at California Adventure, since our friends had never been there, plus it was far less crowded on this windy Saturday.

During Halloweentime, both parks have special features to help you get into the spooky spirit. Here are the things we checked out, and if you do, I recommend getting a Fast Pass, because the regular lines were really long:

California Adventure:

The Tower of Terror – this freaky ride will scare you anyway, perfect for Halloween!

Disneyland:

The Haunted Mansion – this spooky attraction gets a visit from Jack Skellington and the characters from A Nightmare Before Christmas every Halloween and Christmas. The 6-year-olds loved this ride!

Space Mountain – this ride is already terrifying because it’s in the dark, but add a bunch of creepy space ghosts and it’s even more exciting!

The giant Mickey jack-o-lantern – right at the beginning of Main Street, this seasonal mainstay is an awesome photo spot, but our kids could not be bothered, unless it was to photo bomb someone else’s family picture.

There is a special Mickey’s Trick-or-Treat party that you can attend in the evening – check out all the Halloweentime features at Disneyland’s website. And you can make a little bit of Disney magic at home with this recipe for Jack Skellington cookies at OC Mom Blog. Here are more pictures from our day of fun:
