The Magic of Mickey’s Halloween Party

mickey's halloween party i’ve posted before about how much our family loves Halloween Time at Disneyland. in addition to the fun you can have visiting Disneyland during Halloween, you can also attend Mickey’s Halloween Party. this separate ticketed event is a fun and festive Trick-or Treat party, that is only open to those who have purchased tickets. so, what is the difference between Halloween Time at Disneyland  and Mickey’s Halloween Party…well, let me tell you.

first of all, you get to wear Halloween costumes. this is so much fun for the kids, and actually for anyone of any age! here is my cutie ready to head into Mickey’s Halloween Party. he is a police dog in case you are wondering.


there are also things that are unique to Mickey’s Halloween Party that you won’t see at the park everyday during Halloween Time. like….Mickey’s Costume Party Cavalcade! a real fun Halloween parade that runs from a “The Small World” and to the Main Street Town Hall and back, with all your Disney favorites dressed up for Halloween. this is performed twice nightly.


you may even get a chance to see Anna and Elsa from Disney’s Frozen on their magical Frozen float.

guests can get their pictures taken with Disney Villians who prowl the grounds on main street.


or attend the Monsters University Show and Dance Party at Tomorrowland Terrace. it’s a great place to show your Halloween dance moves. my kids had a blast dancing with their friends all over the dance floor. and they also have a Mike & Sulley spirited Monster Scare-Off which all the kids loved. it was a cute show.

and of course the Trick-or-Treating throughout Disneyland Resort is what brings many people to Mickey’s Halloween Party. there are lots of treat trails throughout the park with candy and even healthy treat options. this is one of our favorite things to do during the party, and the boys came home with loads of candy.


of course a trip to Mickey’s Halloween Party wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the Haunted Mansion Holiday. it has been transformed with a mix of Halloween spookiness and Christmas tradition. Haunted Mansion Holiday is inspired by the classic animated film “Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas.” this year, Jack’s return to the Haunted Mansion includes the traditional Halloween/Christmas gingerbread house in the Mansion Ballroom, with special spooky surprises in this year’s design.


i would have to say the best thing about Mickey’s Trick-or-Treat Party is the “Halloween Screams” fireworks show hosted by “Master of Scare-omonies” Jack Skellington. it’s a boo-tiful fireworks spectacular exclusively for Mickey’s Halloween Party guests and is my all-time favorite Disneyland Firework Show.

along with Disney Halloween magic, all these festive Halloween activities, plus everything else happening during Halloween Time at Disneyland Resort is available to guests at Mickey’s Halloween Party! it is not to be missed. we just love going each year, as it has become one of our family’s favorite Halloween Traditions. we stayed till the very end it was so much fun.


and lastly, don’t forget to get your picture with the giant pumpkin Mickey!
