This year’s Halloween festivities was a little different from the years past. With a growing little pumpkin inside my belly, I avoided our annual trip to haunted houses and scary mazes, and opted for a more kid friendly (more calm) environment.
It was our first time attending Mickey’s Halloween Party at Disneyland and it did not disappoint.
I think it’s a great place for kids and kids-at-heart to have fun during the Halloween season.
It’s so great to see the little ones have fun and dressed up in their favorite costumes.
My niece Jazzy dressed up as a mermaid and my nephew Jonah was Spiderman.
They were both so adorable.
The park was sold out on this particular night, but the lines for candy stations weren’t that bad. There plenty of trick-or-treat stations that were spread out all over the park and we were only able to visit about half of them.
Disney was giving out all sorts of candies and chocolates, but they also have an option for healthier treats for those who requested them, I was able to find carrot snacks and dried cranberries and apple chips after I’ve had enough of the candies.
Since the park opened at 6pm, we went right after work, so we ate dinner at the park. I found veggie burgers at Hungry Bear Restaurant (it’s not on the menu, you’ll have to ask for it).
In between the trick-or-treating activities, we also rode rides (shorter lines since there are less people at the park) and enjoyed all the festive decorations.
When it was announced that the Halloween firework show was about to start, we parked the strollers along Main St and waited for the skies to light up.
My nephew missed the whole show as this was already past his bedtime.
But this little trooper stayed up until the park closed at midnight. She was having too much fun with the Disney characters to miss anything.
We had a blast and will plan on going again next year. It was a family affair, with all my sisters joining us and cousins and kids.
We got a ton of candy, and we only went to half of the candy stations. We split our time going on rides and watching the shows.
The picture below is not our picture (it’s a borrowed picture from a friend of a friend) but you get the idea of what you can expect to bring home. We still have plenty of candy at home that we will probably giveaway to our co-workers.
I hope you had a fun Halloween season this year 🙂
