    Hi there! I want to take my daughter to Disneyland on Halloween day. Does Disneyland hand out candy to guests on Halloween or is it only offered to guests who attend the oogie boogie bash?

    Trick or treat, Dalilah, and thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I love helping my fellow Californians plan their next visit to the Happiest Place on Earth, especially when it’s for a spook-tacular reason, such as Halloween! 

    I checked with a Cast Member, and was told that unfortunately, at this time, candy is only being handed out during Oogie Boogie Bash – A Disney Halloween Party, which is being held inside Disney California Adventure Park this year. However, there is still plenty of Halloween Time fun to be had inside Disneyland Park! For starters, here’s the Entertainment Schedule for the day. I recommend checking out the wicked Halloween spell-ebration, Halloween Screams, currently scheduled for 9:30 PM. Your daughter will also enjoy getting her groove on with Disney Villains during the Disney Villains Dance Party, which is currently scheduled from 5:30 PM – 9:30 PM in Tomorrowland.

    Nothing says Halloween Time like the classic Haunted Mansion Holiday, featuring Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas! Then, look out for special Character meet-and-greets with Jack and Sally. Speaking of Characters, I recommend downloading the Disneyland app to track down your favorite Characters throughout your visit. 

    Don’t forget to check out the Main Street Pumpkin Festival, featuring uniquely-carved pumpkins scattered up and down Main Street, U.S.A. This is also the perfect spot to snap some memorable Halloween pictures of you and your daughter! 

    Last, but certainly not least, be sure to satisfy your sweet tooth with this helpful Foodie Guide to Halloween Time 2019 at Disneyland Resort. I recently enjoyed the Pumpkin Spice Churro (found near Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters) and loved it! 

    Wishing you and your daughter a pixie-dusted, magical Halloween experience filled with frightful fun and happy haunts!
