    I'm trying to help my sister in Australia organize her trip to Disneyland. She really wants to experience Halloween at Disneyland, as we've told her it was our funnest trip. When will the Halloween decorations & fireworks begin this year?

    Hello, Sally! I absolutely love that you are helping your sister plan a trip to the Happiest Place on Earth! As the designated planner for all my family and friends, I know exactly how important and FUN this task is.

    You are right about Halloween Time – it certainly is an amazing time to visit the Disneyland Resort. Especially with the addition last year of all the ghoulish fun in Disney California Adventure Park. The official dates and information for Halloween Time in 2018 haven’t quite been released yet. Typically, this announcement is made on the Disney Parks Blog in the summer, so she will want to subscribe to the blog for updates and follow them on social media. In the past, however, Halloween Time has started in mid-September and continued until October 31. 

    Along with the start and end dates of Halloween Time, the blog will also release the dates of Mickey’s Halloween Party and the days when you can begin purchasing your tickets. This is a very popular event, so I suggest that your sister purchase her Mickey’s Halloween Party tickets as soon as she is able. Finally, I would have her review the costume guidelines (listed on the Mickey’s Halloween Party page) so they can start preparing their costumes in advance. There are a few rules to be aware of and I don’t want her to be surprised when she visits this fall. 

    If you need any more advice as you continue to plan your sister’s trip, please visit us again! Have a magical day!
