At Disney California Adventure Park

For the first time, Cars Land in Disney California Adventure will transform with a special Haul-O-Ween makeover as the citizens of Radiator Springs don costumes and decorate their respective homes for the season. Lightning McQueen, Mater, Cruz, Red and DJ will be all dressed up–as a super hero, a "van-pire," a pirate, a clown and a punk rocker, ready to go "trunk-or-treating." Attractions transform, too, with Mater's Junkyard Jamboree turning spooky as the Graveyard JamBOOree, and Luigi's Rollickin' Roadsters getting a seasonal twist to become Luigi's Honkin' Haul-O-Ween.

Scary the Scarecar will stand guard over the entrance to Route 66, a preview to the Haul-O-Ween transformation awaiting guests in Cars Land. With Fillmore's Jack-Oil Lanterns, the web spun over Flo's by a Spider-Car, and the Cozy Cone dressed up in car-stumes, the townsfolk turn Radiator Springs into Radiator Screams.

Oogie Boogie appears for the first time at Disney California Adventure, too, taking over with his twisted tale of a forever , inspired by "Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas."  Oogie Boogie's oversized silhouette beckons guests through the main entrance of the park and he brings to life a swarm of bats around Carthay Circle Restaurant and Lounge.

Disney California Adventure also will be featured for the first time as part of the pre-party mix-in for Mickey's Halloween Party, a separate-ticket event that features special entertainment, Disney characters in their Halloween attire, and trick or treating at locations throughout Disneyland. This year, a ticket to Mickey's Halloween Party has even greater value as guests will be able to visit Disney California Adventure as well as Disneyland during the three hours prior to the beginning of the party in Disneyland.

Tickets to the popular Mickey's Halloween Party go on sale for Annual Passholders, Disney Vacation Club members and Disney Visa Card holders. Tickets go on sale for the general public.

At Disneyland Park

At Disneyland, guests will enjoy frightfully fun thrills on popular Halloween attractions Haunted Mansion Holiday and Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy, along with themed foods and merchandise, plus spooky décor that includes a giant Mickey Mouse jack-o'-lantern and a Pumpkin Festival on Main Street, U.S.A. 

Haunted Mansion Holiday celebrates the collision between Halloween and Christmas as Jack Skellington, from the Walt Disney Pictures classic "Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas," offers his unique take on the holidays. The annual Haunted Mansion Holiday gingerbread house, presents a new design each year, and this year it's the creepy Oogie Boogie in the form of a 7-foot-tall cookie on the table in the Mansion ballroom. He is peeling back the roof of a gingerbread Haunted Mansion, uncovering myriad gummy bugs and worms. 

Another Halloween Time favorite at Disneyland is Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy, a reimagining of the popular thrill ride in Tomorrowland. Guests on board the speeding Space Mountain vehicles are thrust into a ghostly galaxy where they are surrounded by eerie screams, sound effects and music. Spine-chilling spirits pop out of the darkness, appearing to reach out and menace the space travelers.

Disneyland will continue to offer its traditional Diá de los Muertos skeleton display in Frontierland for the Halloween season, through .

Mickey's Halloween Party

Guests are invited to dress in costume for Mickey's Halloween Party where they will trick-or-treat throughout Disneyland for candy and healthy snacks. And this year, capturing memories during the party will be easier than ever as guests who have admission to Mickey's Halloween Party will enjoy the added bonus of unlimited Disney PhotoPass.

Another extra-special treat is the "Halloween Screams" fireworks spectacular, a Mickey's Halloween Party tradition presented exclusively for party guests and hosted by "Master of Scare-omonies" Jack Skellington.



Also exclusive to Mickey's Halloween Party is the "Frightfully Fun Parade" led by The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow (from the Disney animated classic "The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad"). The Horseman rides through the park on his ghostly black steed with a flickering jack-o'-lantern to usher in the parade featuring Jack Skellington followed by a procession of grim, grinning (and hitchhiking) ghosts from the iconic Haunted Mansion attraction. The creepy Dr. Facilier from Disney's "The Princess and the Frog" calls on mystical powers, summoning his Shadow Men from the bayou to loom large over his strange and twisted Voodoo parlor. The mischievous Disney villains appear out of the darkness, ready to stir up some trouble.  The wicked gathering includes the Evil Queen, Jafar and Cruella.

Disney characters–villains as well as Mickey Mouse and friends–will appear at locations throughout the park, and the Cadaver Dans ghostly quartet will perform on the Rivers of America in New Orleans Square and Frontierland.

Another popular feature of the party, the opportunity for guests to "mix in" with regular park guests for three hours prior to the party's opening time, now will allow visits between Disneyland and Disney California Adventure parks.
