Every year, beginning September 1, the villains take over the parks, the bats find their place in the Carthay Circle belfry, and Halloween Time begins at Disneyland Resort. With temperatures becoming more bearable after the hot summer months, there is no better time to visit The Happiest Place on Earth. In addition to the hundreds of jack-o’-lanterns and spooky Halloween decorations, there is also a ton of great limited-time food to eat, perfect for those who love the sweet and those who love the heat.

Two attractions also get Halloween makeovers! Guests can visit Disneyland Park, where the classic Haunted Mansion attraction has been turned into Haunted Mansion Holiday. Those who head over to Disney California Adventure Park can ride Guardians of the Galaxy: Monsters After Dark. What is particularly fun about Guardians is that, in the morning, Guests can enjoy the normal ride. Then, beginning around 2 p.m., the ride is transformed into Monsters After Dark for the evening.

It is important to note that a valid theme park reservation is required in order to enjoy the tour. Simply booking the tour does not give Guests entry into Disneyland Park. Reservations are not required, but are highly recommended, and payment is required upon booking.
