    My daughter wants to come for Halloween and I want to see the Pixar Parade. Do you know how long the parade is running? Also when do the Halloween party tickets go on sale?

    Howdy, Katie! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!

    I am so excited that you are planning a trip to the Disneyland Resort for Halloween Time! It is such a unique and fun time to visit with so many ghoulishly great things to explore. The Pixar Play Parade is returning on April 13, 2018, as part of Pixar Fest and will be presented in Disneyland Park for the first time. Pixar Fest is scheduled to end on September 3, 2018, which is just before Halloween Time generally starts. It’s not exactly spelled out what will happen to the Pixar Play Parade when Pixar Fest concludes. It’s possible it could go on hiatus or maybe it will move back over to Disney California Adventure Park. Your best bet will be to stay up-to-date with the Disney Parks Blog and to watch the entertainment schedule as your travel dates approach. 

    The Disney Parks Blog will also be your go-to source for information on Mickey’s Halloween Party. Typically, there is an announcement in July about Halloween Time and party dates. They will also list the day that Mickey’s Halloween Party tickets will go on sale. I suggest purchasing these tickets as soon as possible as most, if not all, dates eventually sell out. In the past, having a ticket to Mickey’s Halloween Party allowed you to enter the parks as early as 4:00 p.m. You might want to keep that in mind as you start to plan out how you will spend your days. 

    I hope this helps! Happy planning!
