    We are planning a trip to Disneyland in October. Will there be villain (specifically Maleficent) character meets during Halloween time? Outside of the Nightmare Before Christmas characters?

    Hi there, Amber!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. A trip to the Happiest Place on Earth this fall sounds ghoulishly delightful! This is my favorite time to visit as I just love all the autumn decor and specialty food items available during Halloween Time.

    In general, Character appearances are always subject to change, so we don't know for sure who exactly will be meeting during your trip. Your best bet is to make sure you download the Disneyland app and search which Characters are meeting each morning of your in the parks. The best place to find a wide variety of Disney Villains will most-likely be at the all-new Oogie Boogie Bash - A Disney Halloween Party happening select nights at Disney California Adventure Park. This separately ticketed event will feature an array of happy haunts and spooktacular fun. I look forward to Villainous, an all-new Halloween-inspired version of World of Color, and a brand new hauntingly beautiful experience at Redwood Creek Challenge Trail Transformed.

    Some of my favorite Halloween Time experiences are actually in Cars Land in Disney California Adventure Park. I love that some of the attractions here are transformed for the season, and I think it's so fun to see the famous Cars residents of Radiator Springs dressed in costume. Make sure you listen to all the music of the land during this time as it is specially crafted for Halloween!

    I hope this helps, and beware of hitchhiking ghosts!
