#2 COSTUMED CHARACTERS: For the first time ever, the characters will be wearing their costumes in BOTH parks. Mickey, Minnie and the gang will be dressed in different costumes in each park and available for photos. Use the Disneyland app to find them all.

#3 VILLAINS: The villains come out in droves during Halloween Time. You’ll want to keep your eyes open for the likes of Cruella DeVille, Jafar, the Wicked Queen, Maleficent and more. You can find villain appearances by using the Disneyland app as well.

#4 HAUNTED MANSION HOLIDAY: One of the most popular attraction overlays is the Haunted Mansion Holiday, where Jack Skellington and his crew from The Nightmare Before Christmas have taken over the Haunted Mansion. You’ll want to grab a FastPass for this, because lines can get long. And as a bonus tip, if you can't make it to Disneyland during Halloween Time, this Halloween/Christmas mash-up stays through the holidays.
