    Hi Disney Moms and Dads! My DD17 and I are heading to Disneyland in Oct. We are all about having Halloween experiences as we are from Aus. We have booked for the party. What else should we do? Can you tell us about the Happiest Haunts Tour? Thanks!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Natalie. I hope you're having a magical week.

    I'm glad to hEAR you and your daughter will be heading to the Disneyland Resort to attend Mickey's Halloween Party. Dust off your broomsticks and accessories, and don your costumes for an immersive experience. Many Guests, both young and young-at-heart, dress up for this spook-tacular event.

    I'm not sure if you and your daughter are interested in the edible goodies available for Guests to trick-or-treat. There are usually candy bars, chocolates, as well as healthier options like carrot sticks and cranberries. I typically take advantage of the smaller crowds during Mickey's Halloween Party to enjoy my favorite attractions. Haunted Mansion is taken over by Jack Skellington and gang and transformed into Haunted Mansion Holiday. Interested in being up-close with Disney villains? Don't forget to check them out at Villains Square (in the middle of Town Square on Main Street, U.S.A.)

    Disney's Happiest Haunts Tour has had different variations each year. In previous years, Guests were escorted throughout Disneyland Park, and park-hopped to Disney California Adventure Park to explore Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. (This required Guests on tour to have a Park Hopper ticket.)  Recently, the Happiest Haunts Tour focused solely on exploring Disneyland Park. There are stops along the way for Guests to taste some seasonal treats. Guests will also enjoy some of the popular attractions at Disneyland Park during the tour, which lasts about 2 hours long. 

    I hope this information is helpful for you. I wish you and your daughter a magical vacation during Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort, Natalie. Please visit us again if you have further questions.

    Safe Travels,

Meet the Panelist: Kiki, California

Greetings from Northern California! I have been fascinated by the magic of Disney since I was a little girl; now that I am a mother of two, I love watching my children experience Disney Parks through their own eyes. I am also surrounded by fellow Disney-loving nurse friends whom I enjoy quick adults-only Disneyland Resort escapes with. Whether you are planning your once-in-a-lifetime family trip or a short adults-only getaway to the Happiest Place on Earth, I am here to help!
