  • News Halloween Season and Party Dates are out, with more parties

    posted on July 1st, 2013 by Erin Glover, Manager, Social Media and Print, Disneyland Resort


    Friday the 13th seems like the perfect day to kick off the spookiest time of year here at the Disneyland Resort Halloween Time. And this year, will expand to a spooky total of 13 nights at Disneyland park!
    Halloween Time features Disney villains, Mickey Mouse and his friends in Halloween costumes, a Haunted Mansion HolidayDisneyland.com/Halloween! Mark your calendars for the following dates:
    Monsters UniversityDisney Parks Blog, and you can get even more information at Disneyland.com/Halloween. And join the conversation on Twitter with the hashtag #HalloweenTime.

    Re: Halloween Season and Party Dates are out, with more parties

    If you look at the dates...
    Mickey’s Halloween Party 2013 dates:
    Friday, September 27;
    Tuesday, October 1; Friday, October 4;
    Tuesday, October 8; Friday, October 11;
    Tuesday, October 15; Friday, October 18;
    Monday, October 21; Wednesday, October 23; Friday,
    October 25; Monday, October 28; Wednesday, October 30; and Thursday, October 31

    The Wednesday parties later in the month are new. 3 parties a week. The 3rd week which includes the Wednesday the 23rd party is a busy week. The final week with a Wednesday the 30th party is usually not too bad, but the final party on the 31st, Halloween Day, is a busy one(sells out quickly).

      I love Halloween. A lot. But, can someone explain to me why DLR is changing the look of their iconic park and starting Halloween celebrations in September? Thinking like this is what makes DLR more a park for locals than a destination park for out of state tourists. I was originally planning my family's trip for mid September but when I found out the Halloween habit of closing HM for a Halloween refit right before LABOR DAY we changed that plan. If I am going to travel across the country to see Disneyland and DCA I want to see those parks, not Halloween versions of those parks! When do they decorate for Christmas... November 1?

        To answer your last question, after the party on the 31st, Halloween comes down. But Christmas starts going up about the 21of October. They are both extensive theming which take a lot of time to install. It all happens in phases, a little here a little there each night.

        Don't go to WDW where the seasons are longer. These are very profitable seasons so are maxed out. For there to be more regular weeks it depends on how dates fall on the Calendar. The last Friday of September is the contemporary start date for parties. As is the Friday after the week with Labor day to start the season.

                September 13th, really Disney. 7 weeks for a one day holiday. This is beyond me.

                  It comes down to money. With the parties being an extra ticket opportunity, it pays for disneyland to offer as many as they can as soon as they are able.

                    At least I can think about cool weather coming soon.

                      Ok, but how much are tickets going up this year? I don't see that anywhere unless I'm missing it.

                        I saw on Twitter that someone said that it went up from $3 to $5 from last year.

                        FOUND IT:

                        To compare prices to 2012:



                        2012 2013
                        Advanced Purchase - AP $46 ???
                        Advanced Purchase - Public $54 $59
                        Day Of $64 $67
                        October 30/31 $69 $74

                          I will be in town the week of the 13th, and i am excited to be able to experience the Park with two different 'faces'....a few days as it normally is, and then a few days with the Halloween decor.

                          I think i am most excited about finally getting to see the Haunted Mansion Holiday. I have heard a lot about it over the years, but never had the chance to experience it.

                          Looking forward to the season!

                            And yet, I've got family in Colorado who are bringing their two young'uns to Disneyland now in October instead of August because they want to see the Halloween stuff. They are planning on buying tix to one of the parties one night during their visit and dress up, and they want to see Ghost Galaxy and Mansion Holiday.

                            It can go either way for folks.

                              That's nothing. The malls turned Christmas into 12 weeks for a two day holiday (if you count Christmas Eve).
