    We will be visiting Disneyland and California land Oct. 12th and 13th. What are the park times during October 12th and 13? Also, Will there be light shows at both parks October 12th and 13th? Is there any kind of discount for two days attendance?

    Hello, Karen! Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    October is such a lovely time to visit with all the fall decor around the parks and the spooky fun to be had as part of Halloween Time. It's a bit early to know the park hours for this October, but in the past, the parks opened around 9:00 a.m. or 10:00 a.m. and closed at 8:00 p.m. or 9:00 p.m., with extended hours on the weekends. Mickey's Halloween Party takes place this time of year which usually means that Disneyland Park will close early on select nights and only remain open to those with Halloween party tickets. Last year, Disney California Adventure Park and the Downtown Disney District were open while the party was happening in Disneyland Park. I would bet on the party taking place at least one of the nights of your stay, so you'll definitely want to look into buying Mickey's Halloween Party tickets. The party is a super fun time with exclusive entertainment and character meeting opportunities. Keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog this summer for the announcement of Halloween Time and Mickey's Halloween Party dates. 

    During this time of year, you can typically count on Fantasmic! performing at least on the weekends and World of Color performing nightly. You'll want to check the entertainment schedule about 30-45 days before your travel dates to see official showtimes. 

    Finally, when you buy multi-day tickets you will pay slightly less per day than buying single-day tickets. Also, check out the Offers & Discounts page to see if any offers come along that fit your travel dates. 

    Please stop by again if you have any other questions!
