Mickey's Halloween Party

This party is an adult's only chance to dress up like Alice while riding the teacups, as normally adults aren't allowed into the park in costume. Children can also have fun dressing as their favorite characters and collecting candy. Disneyland will close early on the nights of this event so that the entire park can be transformed.

Costumes: Adults are not usually allowed to wear costumes into the parks but this is your chance, you can even attend dressed as Disney characters. Disney does reserve the right to reject specific costumes so do try to keep yours family appropriate and not dangerous to yourself or others. If you're dressed as a Disney character, regardless of how good the costume is, you cannot pose for other guests' photographs or sign autographs.

Halloween Screams Fireworks: A special Halloween-themed fireworks display just for party guests.

History and Trivia - Hide Section

The Attraction's History: From 2005 through 2009 the Disneyland Resort's big Halloween Party event was held in Disney California Adventure under the name Mickey's Trick-or-Treat Party. In 2010 the combination of the popular World of Color water show and extensive construction throughout the park sparked a move across the esplanade for 2010. Time will tell if it remains this way for a while or moves back to DCA in 2011.
