    Does anyone know when they start decorating Disneyland California for Halloween & when the themed foods start? We’re planning a birthday trip for my son and want to go around that time.

    Aloha Elizabeth, and welcome to planDisney!  I can't think of a more magical place to celebrate your son's birthday than the Disneyland Resort!

    Halloween Time is one of my favorite times to visit the parks, it's just so festive to see all of the fall décor and enjoy all of the new fall food and treats! 

    We do not know the exact date yet, but it's usually around the first weekend in September.  I'd say if you planned your visit for mid-September through Halloween, you'd have a very good chance to catch all of the fall and Halloween seasonal offerings.  The Disney Parks Blog is a great resource, and they usually will have an announcement of when the Halloween and fall celebration will take place, so I'd keep an eye on the site!

    You may also want to explore the Oogie Boogie Bash Halloween Party at Disney California Adventure Park.  It's a separately ticketed Halloween party, and offers a ton of family-friendly activities, trick-or-treating, photo opportunities with special characters, and the whole family can dress up in their favorite Disney costumes!  If you're a Halloween-loving family, I highly recommend checking it out!

    I hope this information sets you and your family up for a frightfully fun time Elizabeth!  If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to come back to planDisney and ask!  

    Have a magical day!
