    My family and I are going to MNSSHP in September and I was wondering is the Shadow Man and Mother Gothel will be there during the party for pictures?

    Dear Samantha,
    How exciting to know you'll be at the Disneyland Resort for the Halloween Time Festivities!
    Make sure to look out for some amazing food offerings, including the Bat Wing Raspberry Sundae, which is made white chocolate-raspberry swirl ice cream, blood-red sprinkles, whip cream and a Bat Wing cookie! You can get this particular dessert at Clarabelle's Hand Scooped Ice Cream inside the Disney California Adventure.
    As you know, Mickey's Halloween Party ticket holders will have access to both Parks this year so you'll have a ghoulishly great time!
    As far as the infamous villains you're asking about, I am happy to share that Dr. Facilier (Shadow Man) will certainly be on hand to take pictures with you and your guests at the Disneyland Park!
    Plus, you can also catch him during the Frightfully Fun Halloween Parade.
    As far as Mother Gothel, Disneyland Cast members say she will not be present at this year's Halloween festivities.
    I personally would love to meet her myself and possibly even join her for a duet version of "Mother Knows Best"... ha!
    The good news is, you'll be able to meet several other villains, including Ursula, Cruella, and Jafar and trick-or-treat to your heart's content!
    Have a Spooktacular time and thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
