Disneyland Halloween Party 2018 Details
Mickey's Halloween Party is the official Halloween party held at Disneyland each year. Like in yeas past, the party will be held in Disneyland Park and the first party will be held in late September. On party nights, Disneyland will close a few hours early to the public and only be open for guests who purchased a party ticket.
The party includes everything included with Halloween Time and so much more. You'll also experience these exlusive extras:
- Disney PhotoPass Downloads taken during the event
- Trick-or-treating stations in Disneyland
- Halloween Screams Fireworks
- Villain Square with Chracater Greetings
- Frightfully Fun Parade led by the Headless Horseman
Parties are five hours long, but you can get into both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park three hours prior to party time. That's up to eight hours of Halloween fun with your Mickey's Halloween Party ticket!
If you don't want the extra expense of a Mickey's Halloween Party ticket, you can head into Disney California Adventure Park if you have a Park Hopper. Or, you can explore Downtown Disney or plan a Character Dining experience at Goofy's Kitchen. You can also venture out a little further and make a reservation for Medieval Times or the Pirate's Adventure Dinner in Buena Park. Whether you're planning on going to the party or not, you'll want to know when the parties are being held. This will allow you to make your plans, whatever they may be.
