    Hi, I was wondering if the opening of the Halloween rides correlate to the official dates Halloween starts at Disney, August 23rd? Would the rides Haunted mansion holiday and the seasonal guardians of the galaxy have an opening of August 23rd too?

    Hello there, Keira!

    Thanks for bringing us your spooky question! While I'm not nearly as clairvoyant as Madame Leota, I'll do my best to share the information that I do know. Jump in a Doombuggy and let's go for a ride!

    We do know that Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort is scheduled to return on August 26, 2024. That's a little earlier than in past years, so it's exciting to have extra time to enjoy all the festivities! We can also see that there are currently plans to include our seasonal favorites, such as Haunted Mansion Holiday and Guardians of the Galaxy - Monsters After Dark. Usually, those attractions do start on the same day as Halloween Time! But I will give a word of caution: you never know when a silly spook or mischievous talking raccoon might start some trouble, so attraction availability is always subject to change. I'd say your odds are frighteningly good, though!

    Halloween Time brings lots of other fun, too! I especially love Cars Land during the fall, the costumes and decorations are so clever. You'll also find all kinds of frighteningly festive decorations and treats! We may get some Halloween teasers on the Disney Parks Blog soon, so keep an eye on that website for more updates about the fun coming this year. The blog also usually posts a helpful Foodie Guide when we get closer to events, which is really helpful for figuring out what you want to try during your visit. There are usually a lot of choices!

    It looks like you are arriving just in time for all the fun, Keira! I hope you have a fab-BOO-lous time at the resort!

    Keep moving forward!
