When the spell is cast and the pumpkins appear, Disney’s Happiest Haunts Tour at the Disneyland Resort shows the spirits are near! A special opportunity to add to the fun, this tour is only offered for the Halloween season. With your own ghoulish guide and a headset to listen, you walk through the parks while the jack-o’-lanterns glisten.
As you learn about the history of Halloween as a whole, you will also hear tales specific to Disney on your stroll. Decorating for Halloween since 2006, the resort is the perfect place to get your Halloween fix. Your story begins at Disney California Adventure park, through Buena Vista Street with the Headless Horseman glowing in the dark. Next, you drive on to Radiator Screams where you meet Mater the Van-pire and the rest of his team. As you walk back to Disneyland park, you get your first treat, some delicious candy so spook-tacular and sweet.
At Disneyland park, your first stop is the pumpkin, shaped like Mickey and shows Halloween Time has been summoned. Standing 16-feet tall and a perfect picture location, be sure to stop and marvel at this magical creation. Stroll along Main Street, U.S.A. and delight in the displays, each featuring pumpkins that are sure to amaze. No two pumpkins are alike so be sure to look closely, to see if there’s one that is mostly ghostly. Next, you will be taken to the iconic Partners Statue, where each of the pumpkins represents a different land- yes, it’s true! The tour then continues to locations galore, from New Orleans Square to Tomorrowland that you are sure to adore.
Disney’s Happiest Haunts Tour is filled with many tricks and treats that will make your Halloween visit one that can’t be beat. This premium experience is offered daily in the early evening of Halloween Time, and spends two and a half hours in the beautiful weather of Anaheim. For exact times and to book your reservation, visit Disneyland.com or call 714-781-8687.
