Halloween Time has Arrived at the Disneyland Resort!

Well it has officially begun: the holiday season at the DLR!  While weather-wise, Anaheim is still scorching, Haunted Mansion Holiday, Ghost Galaxy, the Halloween Tree and the giant pumpkin on Main Street have returned.  New this year are the Halloween Carnival at the Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree and the Art of Frankenweenie Exhibition over at DCA.

HMH — the main event for the holidays!

Also new Halloween merchandise has arrived and we always get giddy about this stuff!  Tombstones and mummies are among the many offerings!

These are almost too awesome!
One of those things that makes you re-evaluate your current shelving situation at home!

Along with the special events that are for the public, there’s also Mickey’s Halloween Party (a separate ticketed event) and the Happiest Haunts tour which, while open to the public, fills up quickly.  We hear nothing but amazing things about that tour and hope to take it some day soon — maybe this year!  Be sure to contact guest services to reserve a spot!
