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.

Special Activities

Trick-or-Treating: Scattered throughout the park are Treat Trails of trick-or-treat stations where you (and your kids if you feel like sharing) can load up on candy. At least one station in each Treat Trail will offer a healthy alternative like apples or carrots.

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.

Mickey's Halloween Cavalcade: A mini-parade featuring the Disney characters in costume.  This parade will not be presented during the 2015 events because of the addition of the Paint the Night parade.

Paint the Night: Disneyland's new Electrical Parade will be presented during Halloween Party nights in 2015, replacing Mickey's Halloween Cavalcade.

Family Dance Parties: Dance with your family, characters, and other party attendees at dance floors set up for the evening. Locations will be marked on the event map.

Photo opportunities: Meet and greet with Disney villians and other charactes, some dressed in their own Halloween costumes. Locations will be marked on the event map.

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.
