It's always fun to see what people have come up with on party nights! Disneyland does have costume guidelines, so make sure to check them out before you go. Don't forget to browse through our costume tutorials for a few ideas either:
Get to the park early. Your party ticket gets you into both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park three hours before the party starts. Make the most of the party by utilizing that extra time. This is the first year that Disney California Adventure has been included in the party ticket admission, so you may want to use those few hours trying out the new Guardians of the Galaxy ride. Keep in mind that the actual party is still held at Disneyland and it's a great idea to be in Disneyland at least 30 minutes prior to the official party start time.
Enjoy the exclusive entertainment. Only those at the Halloween Party get to enjoy the Frightfully Fun Parade and Halloween Screams Fireworks. If you don't want to waste valuable time by staking out a spot, you can make a reservation for the Blue Bayou Dining Package. The package includes a delicious meal and premium viewing spot for the night's show. Our tips for Mickey's Halloween Party include making your reservation for the earlier parade time, as you'll be able to stay in your viewing spot for the fireworks show right after as well.
Stop for photos. Your Mickey's Halloween Party tickets includes all Disney PhotoPass downloads of pictures taken during the party. This is the first year they've included this perk, so you'll want to use it as much as you can. Stop for pictures with the Disney villains and make sure to make a funny face for on-ride photos like Space Mountain: Ghost Galaxy.
Be prepared....for lots of candy. If you're planning on trick-or-treating, prepare yourself for a ton of candy. There are healthy options, like crackers and carrots, as well. Either way, you are given a bag at the party, but you may want to bring an extra. Just remember that you'll be carrying it around with you, so you may not want to get it filled too full.
Enjoy! Mickey's Halloween Party is a special celebration that lets you feel like a VIP at a private event. Take advantage of it and just enjoy everything like the grim, grinning ghosts do.
