It’s Halloween Time 2018 at the Disneyland Resort and that means spook-tacular surprises at every turn! Even the littlest guests can enjoy the season with food, characters and attractions to experience. Here are seven ways families with younger children can enjoy Halloween Time 2018 the Disneyland Resort!

VAMPIRINA AT THE DISNEYLAND RESORT (ANAHEIM, Calif.) – Vampirina has arrived at the Disneyland Resort, just in time for the Halloween season.

Meet Vampirina: Vampirina (aka “Vee”), that lovable girl vampire from the hit Disney Junior series “Vampirina,” has joined us at the Disneyland Resort just in time for Halloween. Swing by Disney California Adventure park to meet Vee!

Cruise through Radiator Screams: Make a pit stop in Cars Land where the residents of Radiator Springs have turned their town into Radiator SCREAMs for the season. Meet Lightning McQueen and Mater in their Cars-tumes, take a picture with the spider car, or ride Luigi’s Honkin’ Haul-O-Ween and Mater’s Graveyard JamBOOree! Younger guests are sure to have a scary good time.

Dance with friends from Disney Junior: While not specifically a Halloween offering, kids will love to dance and sing along at Disney Junior Dance Party! During your visit in Disney California Adventure park, it’s a perfect place for adults to take a rest while little ones dance off some extra energy with stars like Sofia the First and Doc McStuffins.

Share a Halloween-themed snack: This season, there are so many delicious treats to share! For sweet options, split a Main Street Mickey’s Pound Cake or Maleficent churro. If you’re craving something a bit more savory, the Sweet Potato Hand Pie is a yummy treat. For more ideas, check out our Halloween Foodie Guide.

Snap a picture in front of the Mickey Mouse jack-o’-lantern: No trip to Disneyland is complete without a family photo. Kids will love getting up close to the biggest Mickey Mouse jack-o’-lantern on Main Street, U.S.A., while mom and dad will love the photo memories to take home. For Halloween, make your silliest, spookiest face!

Get a Halloween-inspired makeover at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique: With the wave of a wand, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disneyland park offers head-to-toe pampering for guests as young as age three. This season, choose the Minnie Mouse Halloween Costume set as your little one’s outfit of choice – a bewitching look for any young ghoul!

Say hello to Mickey and pals: Disney friends can be found throughout the resort dressed in their Halloween-best costumes, including Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and Donald Duck. Be sure to snag autographs and pose for pictures!

There are so many experiences that await little ones at the Disneyland Resort. Discover resources to plan for trips with little ones here, and download the official Disneyland App to make dining reservations, find characters, see attraction wait times and more!

Five Ways to Enjoy Halloween Time at the Hotels of the Disneyland Resort

Spooky fun and full of delight, the Hotels of the Disneyland Resort have terrifyingly tasty treats, amazing displays and ghostly entertainment, all sure-fire ways to extend the Halloween Time experience, before, during or after a great day at the parks.

Enjoy the Spook-tacular Seasonal Decor: In the lobby of Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is a “spook-tacular” edible display of Halloween pumpkins. These pumpkins take a ghoulish form with Oogie Boogie, and are built from cereal treats, icing, chocolate, and fondant. Our talented pastry chefs used over 200 pounds of icing, 100 pounds of chocolate, and 300 pounds of fondant to create these incredible pumpkins. See if you can find the 13 Hidden Mickeys throughout the display!

Also during Halloween Time, experience ghoulish décor surrounding the Disneyland Hotel and discover the swashbuckler in you at the pirate-themed Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel. The pirates have hoisted the Jolly Roger flag in the lobby, calling all buccaneers for fun at “Pirates Pier”!

Exclusive Trick-or-Treating for Hotel Guests: On select afternoons from October 2 through October 31, overnight guests of the Hotels of the Disneyland Resort are invited to drop in for a howling good time and exclusive, complimentary trick-or-treat festivities. Together, Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, the Disneyland Hotel, and Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel will have a treat map of locations, so little ghosts and goblins (and their parents) can visit all three hotels.
