Disneyland Halloween Dates 2018

Listen Up, Ghosts and Ghouls β€” We've Got MAJOR Disneyland Halloween News!

HALLOWEEN TIME CHARACTERS (ANAHEIM, Calif.) - Along Buena Vista Street at Disney California Adventure park, guests will enjoy Halloween decorations in store windows and in Carthay Circle, theyll see a 10-foot-tall statue of the Headless Horseman, holding up his jack-o'-lantern head to the sky. Mickey and his friends also will be in the area, donning their period-appropriate Halloween costumes, such as a bat for Mickey Mouse, a ghost for Goofy and a witch for Daisy Duck - all in playful fun, of course.
