It is one of our favorite times of the year at the Disneyland Park. Pumpkins and fall decorations adorn The Happiest Place on Earth just in time for Halloween. Last night was the first night of Mickey's Halloween Party where guest could purchase a special admission ticket to trick-or-treat throughout the Disneyland Park.
As the sun begins to set, the park closes down and is only open for visitors with special event tickets to the Mickey's Halloween Party. The lights go dim festive music starts to fill the air and trick-or-treat stations open for trick-or-treaters.
Before my family started trick-or-treating around Disneyland Park, we enjoyed the elaborate decorations and entertainment in the park.
Space Mountain in Tomorrowland transformed into Ghost Galaxy. We flew into space on this thrill seeking ride that has been invaded by spooky space creatures.
The Haunted Mansion attraction in New Orleans Square becomes the Haunted Mansion Holiday inspired by Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas. Jack Skellington greets visitors in the mansion along with ghosts, ghouls and other special surprises.
Our three little swashbucklers got transformed through the magic of Disney at The Pirates League. After taking an official Pirates League Oath, our children got an opportunity to become their favorite pirate. The Pirates League is available at Disneyland by reservation only and is located in New Orleans Square.
Then it was time to start trick-or-treating. Our children walked to various candy stations where friendly Disneyland staff offered the children candy or healthy treat options.
The night ended perfectly with the "Halloween Screams" fireworks spectacular. Fireworks burst into the air over the Sleeping Beauty Castle perfectly coordinated to themed music.
