The happiest Halloween party of all? Mickey’s Halloween Party at Disneyland, of course! Each fall Disneyland gets all dressed up for Halloween with spooky decor, pumpkin-themed treats and special rides and shows. Read on to learn how to join the fun and save money on Mickey’s Halloween Party tickets.

Join the fun

My family has visited Disneyland at Halloween before but we’ve never stayed up late enough to party down with Mickey and friends at the separately ticketed party. (The party starts at 7 pm,which is when we are typically donning our jammies at our house!) This year my kids are ages 5 and 8, which I think is old enough to take the late night plunge into the spooktacular fun. We’ve got our Mickey’s Halloween Party tickets for opening night on September 27.

We’ll be decked out in our scary costumes: a devil, a vampire, a spooky ninja and I am going as…Minnie Mouse. Well, Minnie may not be scary, but she sure is fun. And to me, family fun is the whole point of Halloween! This is a real treat because usually Disney park-going adults are not allowed to come dressed in costume…particularly a Disney character costume.
