Should you travel to Disneyland Resort in the fall? Definitely yes! We all have heard a lot about visiting Disneyland in the Fall. I find it one of the best times to visit the Happiest Place on Earth! Not only the weather is mild in California, but there are also seasonal celebrations happening all over the Disneyland Resort.
You will find all kind of decorations, they are ALL over the park. Jack Skellington (From Tim Burton’s the Nightmare Before Christmas) usually hangs out by The Haunted Mansion along with Sally. Main Street USA becomes a pumpkin festival and Frontierland celebrates El Dia de Los Muertos, usually with an amazing display of skeletons.
Throughout September and October Disneyland Resort hosts the Mickey’s Halloween Party. You will need to purchase tickets for this special event. Totally worth it! We were able to enjoy this celebration a couple of years ago, we all enjoyed every bit of it. Can you say ‘sugar crash’?
Guests to the party are able to enter the park as early as 4pm. Save that morning to relax and enjoy the hotel grounds… you will walk a lot collecting candy. More likely everyone will want to stay up late that night, so resting during the day is the best thing you can do!
You and everyone in your party will receive a wrist band, a trick-or-treat bag (you can also bring your own) and a special map; this map shows all the “Trick-or-Treat Trails” and Character locations for Meet & Greets and Restaurants/Stores that are open during the party. Expect a Night Time Parade and special Fireworks too!
Keep in mind that Guests 14 years and older may not wear costumes nor masks. As always, make sure to check Disney’s Dress Code for updates.
When it comes to crowds, there are a few things to consider and this is why your I(Your Travel Agent) will help you plan accordingly… I will take in consideration events, annual pass blackouts, night events and school holidays to help you find the best days, making sure it suits your must-do’s while at the parks.
