Mickey’s Halloween Party 2017 dates at DISNEYLAND CALIFORNIA: 

How it Works:
1. TICKETS It is a separately ticketed event. In other words, you do not have to have or use a full day ticket to Disneyland to go to the Halloween Party but you may not just use your regular or park hopper ticket to attend either. Tickets start at $95 depending on your chosen date. Tickets available HERE.

2. EARLY ENTRANCE With the Halloween party ticket you may enter BOTH parks starting 3 hours before the event (usually 3pm) to enjoy the rides and decor. The trick or treating and special events will not start until start time (usually 6pm). All visitors to Disneyland (not California Adventure) that DO NOT have a Halloween ticket will have to exit the park but may continue their visit at California Adventure Park. Cast members will check and identify who does and does not have the Halloween tickets.

3. SPECIAL CHARACTERS One of the BEST parts about the Halloween party is that special villains and characters that are not normally out and about at Disneyland make appearances and meet and greets at the Halloween Party. They will also be in the special parade and fireworks show.

4. TRICK or TREAT All the trick or treating is of course, included with your Halloween Party ticket. All guests, young and old can get their treat bags ready. Guests will be provided a bag but you can always bring your own. 

5.* NEW for ALL Visitors to California Adventure Park- (Halloween ticket holders and all others at California Adventure) Disney California Adventure Park will create a  Buena Vista Street like no other. Oogie Boogie from Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas will be large and in charge. Radiator Springs will become Radiator Screams with overlays on Mater's Junkyard Jamboree and Luigi's Rollickin' Roadsters. (Park Hopper tickets are great for Halloween time $13 off right now through 8/21 to use during the entire Halloween season at Disneyland Resort INFO HERE)  

6.*NEW PhotoPASS will be included with Halloween Party tickets this year! All PhotoPass pics that you take during the Halloween Party will be given to you with unlimited downloads. This is a great way to make sure ALL family members get in on the photo fun (yes, MOM too!)

The "Boss"- at Indiana Jones and the Forbidden Eye

TIP #1. Dress in costume! It really is so much fun to get dressed up. We are annual pass holders and had been in the park earlier in the day and because it can still get very warm in Anaheim this time of year - we opted to leave and change into our costumes for the evening party. As soon as the sun went down the kids were comfortable in their Disney-themed costumes.

TIP #2.Watch for all the details and the decorations that Disney makes sure to help you get into a Halloween mood everywhere! Cool overlays and festive decorations will be at California Adventure Park this year too.

TIP #3. Come early- if you are just buying the Halloween party tickets you can enter the parks 3 hours early and then as the party begins you will have to have your party wristband to stay and the others will have to head out. This makes for an enjoyable less crowded time in the park. We rode Indian Jones as fast as we could run through the queue 5 times in a row! 

TIP #4. Explore all the areas of the parks- you will find villains, the Dapper Dans will transform to the Cadaver Dans and look at the Zocalo Dia de los muertos decorations and the new California Adventure Park decorations for sure through Radiator Springs and Buena Vista Street!

TIP #5. Go on all of the special Halloween seasonly themed rides- The Haunted Mansion will be transformed into the Nightmare Before Christmas, Space Mountain will be Ghost Galaxy and new this year Radiator Springs will change into "Radiator Screams"!
