More Halloween parties as the Halloween season continues! Read on to find out about this and more in this week’s Disneyland preview.
Special Events and Notes
The Halloween season at Disneyland means Mickey’s Halloween Party and lots of other Halloween fun! Note that all remaining party dates are sold out, so if you don’t have tickets already, be aware that Disneyland Park will close early on party days. This week, the party will take place on Tuesday and Friday. If you’re planning on going, be sure to check out our planning guide for the event.
Even if you’re not going to the parties, however, the parks will be decked out in Halloween decor (take a look at some pics from the parks here), there will be plenty of unique seasonal treats, characters wear costumes on their costumes, and the following rides have holiday-themed overlays:
- Haunted Mansion Holiday
- Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy
- Luigi’s Honkin’ Haul-o-Ween
- Mater’s Graveyard Jamboree
- Guardians of the Galaxy: Monsters After Dark (evening only).
For more information, make sure you check out our preview of the season here.
Finally, the Dia de los Muertos celebration continues at Zocalo Park in Frontierland in Disneyland Park. Stop by there, and nearby Rancho del Zocalo Restaurante, for photo opportunities, face painting, and treats like Pumpkin Flan. In a similar vein, Plaza de la Familia activities are taking place over at Paradise Gardens Park, including Coco-inspired entertainment, special food options, and exhibits.
Crowds are predicted to be pretty variable this week, ranging from level 9 on Sunday, all the way down to level 4 on Tuesday. Make sure you plan accordingly!
Full details, including park-by-park crowd levels, are available on our Crowd Calendar.
The weekend will feature relatively cool weather, but a significant chance of rain both days. The work week should be drier (except for Tuesday, which forecasts a 50% chance of rain) and warmer, with highs in the low 80s.
As always, it’s wise to double check the weather as the day of your visit approaches. Check out the most up-to-date forecast here.
With the exception of Party nights, the entertainment schedule is lighter during the week, with no fireworks and fewer parades. There are, however, special shows, including a parade and fireworks, that run during Mickey’s Halloween Party on Tuesday and Friday. Detailed show schedules, including smaller diversions like The Straw Hatters can be found here.

Admission and Hours
Passholder blockouts remain the same this week; Southern California Select Passholders and Southern California Passholders are both blocked out on Saturday and Sunday. All other passes are honored every day this week. For those of you buying tickets as day guests, single-day tickets are at Peak Price ($135/$127) on Saturday, and Regular Price ($117/$110) the remainder of the week.
Regular park hours (excluding Extra Magic Hours/Magic Mornings) are as follows this week:
As per usual, the parks will open one hour early for eligible guests at Disneyland Park Saturday, Tuesday, and Thursday, and at Disney California Adventure Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Resort guests can take advantage of these hours every day of their stay for Extra Magic Hours, while guests eligible for Magic Mornings can use that benefit one day at Disneyland Park only. Full park hours can be found by clicking on each date in the Crowd Calendar.
Virtually everything is up and running at the moment. At Disneyland Park, the Matterhorn is down through November 17, but everything else is scheduled to be online.
Similarly, at California Adventure, only World of Color remains offline until further notice — we’ll let you know when we have a better idea of when it will return as well, but we are not anticipating it back until the latter part of the year. All other attractions are currently operational, but as always, be aware that refurbishments can pop up unexpectedly, so check out our refurbishments page for details on exactly what will be down and for how long.
That should do it for this week’s preview. Check back next week and every week to find out what’s coming down the pike. Got questions? Aware of anything else that prospective guests should know about? Let us know in the comments.
