    What should have been a 6 th birthday celebration is now their 8 th and 10th year ( thanks Covid ! ) gave us the chance to move things around and celebrate Halloween , still debating hotels, need park tickets Magic bands ? Are they a thing at Disneyland ?

    Hey there, Cindy! Welcome to planDisney.

    Wow! I'm so excited to hear that you and your family will finally be visiting the Happiest Place on Earth this year. And as you said, you will be visiting during Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort! You will love the autumnal decorations, pumpkin-spiced treats, and all the festive touches around the resort.

    I recommend purchasing your Theme Park Tickets via the Disneyland Resort website as soon as you can, as Theme Park Reservations are subject to availability. When you purchase your tickets you will be prompted to select a reservation date. You will also have a few options available as an add-on to your ticket, such as Disney Genie+. And it can be used in conjunction with the MagicBand+, which is the only model currently supported at the resort.

    For hotels, you have many options. There are three Disneyland Resort Hotels:

    There are also Good Neighbor Hotels, which are Disney-approved quality hotels located near the resort. I've stayed both on and off-property and both options are great. If you do stay on-property, you will experience the benefits of being a Disneyland Resort Hotel Guest, such as early entry to the theme parks!

    To make your trip extra special, I recommend considering purchasing tickets for the Oogie Boogie Bash – A Disney Halloween Party. There are a few party nights around the date of your visit. It is a family-friendly event held at Disney California Adventure Park that includes after-hours park access to trick-or-treat trails, photo opportunities, Halloween-themed entertainment, attractions, Disney Villain sightings, and more! Your ticket also lets you enjoy the park up to 3 hours before the party begins. Tickets for this event go on sale on June 29!

    Cindy, I am so, so excited for your upcoming trip to the Happiest Place on Earth. There is still plenty of time to return to us with any other questions you have--you can even ask me directly. I hope you have the happiest and spookiest time!

    Your Pal,
