Halloween Time is in full scream at the Disneyland Resort. This year in addition to the fun decorations and atmosphere of Disneyland Park we have a newly overlay theme for parts of Disney California Adventure. The new theme is a good balance between the fun of Disneyland's Halloween Time, and the fright of Universal's Halloween Horror Nights or Knott's Scary Farm

Boona Vista Street

The banners in the esplanade are a foreshadowing of the great theme on Buena Vista Street. After passing under the huge silhouette of Oogie Boogie and his minions at the front gate, we saunter down the 20's era street decorated with gray and purple. There is a impressive statue of The Headless Horseman in front of Elias and Co.. This is the most popular picture spot in the park. As fantastic as it looks during the day you must re-visit after dark. The lighting a special effects make it a must see! Also at night is a lighting ceremony in Carthay Circle. The lighting on Buena Vista Street is wonderful and night the music changes to a more modern scary beat. A word of warning the Carthay lighting ceremony is at the same as a ceremony in Cars Land, to see them both you will need to visit twice. Even the characters are in the spirit on Buena Vista Street. They created their own costumes. Some are adorable and original, some are simply additions to the character's normal Buena Vista Street costume, and there are some that neither I or the Cast Members can explain.

Hollywierd Land

In Hollywood Land Walt Disney Imaginearing has outdone themselves. The overlay of the new and popular Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout attraction is getting great reviews. It seems the Guardians of the Galaxy have escaped the collector's fortress, which when lit at night is one of the highlights of the holiday. However during the escape Baby Groot was left behind because he wandered away from our heroes. So during your tour of the Tivan Collection do not be surprised if Rocket recruits you for a rescue attempt! As the overlay title suggests "Monsters After Dark" is only available at night, making it a two part story with the original during the day.

Haul-o-Ween

For a family treat visit Radiator Springs. The Disney attention to detail is such that an adult will be kept in wonder, but the boys and ghouls in your part will enjoy the fun atmosphere. This area is incredibly charming by day, with the addition of 4 new cars to snap pictures with. One with the new entrance billboard, and three more as you travel the mother road. The lighting moment at twilight has been updated for the holiday along with new music that sets a different tone at night. There is even new music and voice overs at Mater's Junkyard jamboree, and Luigi's Honkin' Haul-o-Ween. 


Official Announcements

Disney has announced that all dates for Mickey's Halloween Party for 2017 are sold out If you a guest of an official Disneyland Resort Hotel there maybe one small glimmer of hope. In past years the hotels have had a limited number of tickets for purchase the morning of the event. Please, bare in mind I have seen over the years people taken advantage of with on-line purchases from non-official sources save your money and your child's spirits and stay away from these possible scams.

Disney also confirmed this week that both Ridemakerz and Build-a-Bear will remain open in Downtown Disney at least through the holidays. Giving those employees and some tots a Christmas wish come true! However Ridemakerz will have restricted hours of 10:00 - 5:00 Tuesday through Saturday. Chapel Hats however is still scheduled to close this month to make room for Disney shop carrying The Dress Shop line of Disney dresses, jewelry, and accessories. The collection is currently sold in Disney's Vault 28 which will be closing this month to make way for announced Star Wars 4D experience
