Mickey’s Halloween Party is Here!

Wednesday, September 29th, 2010

Do you live in Southern California? Plan on visiting in October? Here’s something you and your family won’t want to miss…

Mickey’s Halloween Party is a private-party celebration (how cool is that?) held for 10 nights in October at Disneyland, offering adults and children a chance to dress up in costume and trick-or-treat at the resort. It’s scheduled for Tuesdays and Fridays in October (1, 5, 8, 12, 15, 19, 22, 26 and 29) plus Halloween night, Sunday, Oct. 31.

Highlights include:

—  Trick or Treating at Disneyland, with even more treats along “Mickey’s Hide-and-Go-Treat Trail.”

—  Looking for Boo on the Bayou Trail, Enchanted Sweets Trail and elsewhere.

—  During the 10 nights, guests will enjoy nearly half a million pounds (yikes!) of candy — and even some healthy treats such as apple slices, carrots, raisins and dried fruit crisps.

—  The “Halloween Screams” fireworks spectacular, hosted by “Master of Scare-omonies” Jack Skellington (presented exclusively for guests of  Mickey’s Halloween Party)

—  Dance parties (for all ages!):

°  Club Skellington, at the French Market, features Skellington Crew dancers, DJ Dirge and Miss Twisted (host), Jack & Sally Skellington

° Buzz Lightyear’s Intergalactic Space Jam includes Buzz Girl dancers, Green Army Men and Space Diva DJ, at Tomorrowland Terrace

—  New surprises in “Mickey’s Costume Party” cavalcade, performed twice nightly

—  Character photo locations featuring Mickey and his pals, princesses, pirates, Disney villains and more

—  The opportunity to arrive three hours before the party starts to play in Disneyland. (I know my son would make the most of THAT time…) Nearly all your family’s favorite Disneyland rides and attractions will be available.

Tickets purchased in advance for Mickey’s Halloween Party are $49 most days, while tickets purchased on the event days are $54.  For Oct. 31, all tickets to Mickey’s Halloween Party are $59. Children under age 3 are free.

Save some bucks by buying your tickets in advance and then splurge on some Mickey Mouse ears!

snowing at disneyland

Such an amazing site: Sleeping Beauty’s castle, all decked out for the holidays, with “snow” falling all around us.

After Thanksgiving, I’ll be reporting a lot more on our recent visit to Disneyland, and sharing all the cool stuff they’re doing for the holidays. But for now, I just had to share this photo.
