Disneyland Special Events in 2019 - Lunar New Year BalloonsPlanning a visit to the Happiest Place on Earth? You may want to consider picking your dates based on specific Disneyland events!

Our frog family gets an extra leap of excitement during these special events. It's also good to know what events are hoppening when you visit, because they can influence Disneyland crowd levels.

Guide to Disneyland Events in 2019

JANUARY

Three Kings Day - Jan. 3-8, 2019

When Christmas season has come to a close, there is still more to celebrate in the new year. The 12th day of Christmas is celebrated in Mexico and South America. At Disney California Adventure, you can celebrate Three Kings Day with decorations, coloring, creating a custom jeweled crown, listening to stories or trying traditional treats such as Rosca de Reyes cake.

Get Your Ears On - A Mickey and Minnie Celebration

Come celebrate 90 years of magic with everyone’s favorite couple. The party kicks off Jan. 18 with “Mickey’s Mix Magic,” a park-wide dance party with a projection show that includes music, lasers and, on select nights, fireworks. The projection show takes place on Main Street U.S.A., on water screens along Rivers of America and at “it’s a small world.” Mickey’s Soundsational Parade returns Jan. 25, with Mickey leading the parade on his new float. Chip ‘n’ Dale will arrive with a giant birthday cake. Be sure to check out Mickey and Minnie’s new colorful celebration outfits. All good things must come to an end, and this party ends June 6 (with special foods ending May 27).

Lunar New Year - Jan. 25-Feb. 17, 2019

Mickey and Minnie at Lunar New Year - Disneyland Special Events in 2019

The Lunar New Year Celebration is a multi-cultural event that includes food, authentic performances and your favorite Disney characters. This event takes place at Paradise Gardens inside Disney California Adventure. Colorful lanterns and other decor welcome you, while hanging banners written in English, Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese wish you a Happy Lunar New Year. You can join the time-honored tradition of writing wishes of good fortune and happiness for your friends and family; receive customized Chinese calligraphy and brush art; color; do free crafts; and purchase some traditional Lunar New Years treats. You can find delectable Asian meals at Paradise Garden Grill, or try a sampling of Asian cuisine from the Luna New Year festival marketplace kiosks.

Most years, there is a six-minute nighttime water show before World of Color each night — Hurry Home — Lunar New Year Celebration, featuring Mulan and Mushu. World of Color is under refurbishment, so we're excited to see if it returns!

Lunar New Year is a well-attended event. The lines to greet characters can get quite long, so hop in line early (by 11 a.m.) for the shortest wait in meeting characters (such as Mickey, Minnie, Chip, Dale, Mulan or Mushu) dressed in their Lunar New Year’s best. In 2019, you can meet the Three Little Pigs in honor of the Year of the Pig! You do not want to miss the New Years procession, led by Mulan and Mushu. There are several shows throughout the day. The best place to watch is right in front of the Jumpin’ Jellyfish attraction. This shady spot will offer you a front and center view of the colorfully costumed dancers, dragon, drummers and characters.

FEBRUARY

Super Bowl and the Day After - Feb. 3-4, 2019

There are no special Disneyland events for Super Bowl Sunday, but it tends to be a significantly more crowded day. Depending on the location of the Super Bowl and the team that wins, there can be a Super Bowl Parade the day after the Super Bowl (sometimes they go to Disney World). When Peyton Manning announced he was going to Disneyland to celebrate the Denver Broncos' victory in Super Bowl 50, many thousands of fans flocked to the park to celebrate too. The day after the Super Bowl may affect crowd levels and park entertainment for the day … or not. There is no way to plan for this, but there is usually an announcement right after the big game.  If you are in town the day after the Super Bowl, you might want to take these factors into consideration when planning your itinerary.

Valentine’s Month - Jan. 22-Feb. 18, 2019

In 2019, as part of the Mickey and Minnie celebration, these two Disney sweethearts hope you’ll join them in a celebration of love. Embark on a special scavenger hunt throughout Disneyland Park. You can purchase a map and stickers and search for hidden valentines that Minnie has left for Mickey. You can usually find Valentine’s Day balloons in February, and this year will also feature Mickey and Minnie shaped foods ad Valentine-themed items.

Disneyland After Dark: Sweethearts’ Nite – Feb. 7

Disneyland After Dark events are special parties that take place for four hours after the park closes. You can meet Disney characters, find fun photo opportunities, dance and ride the rides with short wait times. Sweethearts’ Nite requires a separate ticket, which can be purchased through the Disneyland website. Hop quickly. Tickets are $99 and went on sale Nov. 28, 2018. The event is from 9:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m., but guests can enter as early as 6:00 p.m.

MARCH, APRIL AND MAY

Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival - March 1-April 23, 2019

This is a California foodie's paradise and one of the top Disneyland events in 2019! Taking place each year during March and April, the event offers guests the chance to partake in delicious food and wine offerings every day, plus special workshops, classes and experiences on the weekends. Tad and Lily loved participating in Jr. Chef with Goofy, and we loved the free treat that came with the free experience. Guests can visit Festival Marketplaces, themed around different tastes and drinks of California, and reserve their seats at premium experiences with famous chefs. You’ll also encounter special character meet and greets, including opportunities to meet some rarely seen characters like perhaps, Clarabelle Cow or the Country Bears. Good news! The World of Color is expected to be back March 1, 2019, just in time for the Food & Wine Festival. (Pssst … you can reserve the World of Color Dessert Party starting Feb. 22, 2019!)

New Orleans Square Mardi Gras - March 5, 2019

Disneyland Events in 2018 and 2019 - Mickey Mouse at Mardi Gras

While it's always festive inside New Orleans Square at Disneyland Park, the attraction gets decorated even more for Mardi Gras. New Orleans Square gets festooned with beads and masks, and the restaurants offer themed foods and free beads for guests to wear. The real party is happening at Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen in Downtown Disney, where you can enjoy Mardi Gras decorations and a special menu that includes Fat Tuesday specials, including colorful Mardi Gras Bread Pudding and some discount drinks. You can always put on your Mardi Gras Minnie Mouse ear headband and celebrate Mardi Gras year-round by eating the New Orleans-inspired foods inside Disneyland and trying to catch beads when the bands play in New Orleans Square. You can also hop aboard the Mark Twain and maybe even meet or dance with characters from "The Princess and the Frog!"

Disneyland After Dark: 90s Nite – March 7, 2019

Are you ready to get your grunge on or channel your inner Spice Girl or Backstreet Boy? Are "The Lion King," "Aladdin," "Pocahontas," "Toy Story," "Mulan" or "Beauty and the Beast" your golden age of Disney movies? Then get a special ticket that will transport you back to the 1990s. This nostalgic after-hours party will celebrate Disney films of the era and feature special meet and greet with rarely seen characters. The event features an exclusive "Disney Afternoon" After Dark fireworks show! You can ride rides with short waits, stroll down the "Disney Afternoon" Avenue and dance for hours to your favorite 90’s tunes (rocking your mauve lipstick and overalls, or your Gwen Stefani plaid ensemble.) Time flies, so buy your tickets from the Disneyland website quickly before they disappear like a long-gone decade. Tickets are on sale now and run $99 per ticket. The event is from 9:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m., and guests can enter beginning at 6:00 p.m.

Mini Gay Day - March 2, 2019

Gay Days at Disneyland are traditionally held in the fall around the first Saturday in October, but there is a mini Gay Day casual meet-up in March. This is not an official Disney event, but it can affect crowds, and you’ll see a number of rainbow-colored Disneyland treats. Expect to see folks wearing red shirts in celebration!

Egg-stravaganza - April 5-21, 2019

Hop over to the Disneyland Resort for the biggest Easter egg hunt around! Egg-stravaganza is a fun but low-key scavenger hunt that sends guests scurrying around the Disneyland Resort to find hidden eggs during April. Guests purchase a map and stickers and record their finds by placing the corresponding egg sticker on their map to represent that location. Returning your map to a redemption location is a rewarding experience. Keep your eye out for the Easter Bunny meet and greets during this season.

Dapper Day - April 14, 2019

Disneyland Events in 2018 and 2019- Disneyland Dapper Day

Some of the "unofficial" Disneyland events in 2018-2019 and beyond are the best. There are two Dapper Days each year at Disneyland. Guests dress up in their vintage, “Disneybound” and Sunday best to pay homage to the way guests used to dress when Disneyland first opened in the 1950s. These events are unofficial and independently organized, but they do affect crowds. Read our coverage of Dapper Day from a few years ago. The Dapper Day Expo is at the Disneyland Hotel on April 13 and 14, 2019, but the official day in Disneyland Park is April 14.

Disneyland After Dark: Heroes Assemble - April 30 or May 1, 2019

Disney California Adventure is getting its first Disneyland After Dark party, which takes place for four hours after the park closes. You’ll need to buy a separate ticket for this private party of heroic proportions. The event will propel you into the past, present and future of Super Heroes. You can meet some your favorite characters, take advantage of special photo ops, dance the night away and enjoy popular attractions with shorter lines. Annual Passholders can buy tickets starting Feb. 19, and tickets go on sale to the general public Feb. 21, 2019. Make like Dash and race to get these tickets if you don’t want to miss this party, because the last few Disneyland After Dark events sold out quickly.

Bats Day - May 5, 2019

You can expect to see guests dressed in goth, steampunk, Halloween, rockabilly and more for Bats Day. Bats Day, like Dapper Day, is independently organized and takes place usually in May. This event always makes me long for my frog goth phase. There have been rumors that Bats Day organizers may be ending Bats Day in 2019, but Disneyland still has the date posted, so that’s something to watch. You bet this frog squad will show up all in black!

Grad Nites - May and June 2019

Throughout May and June, you may see daytime crowds surge with high school seniors in both parks for local high school grad night celebrations. After 9 p.m., the parties move to a location in California Adventure, but Grad Nite celebrators may be in either park during the morning and throughout the day. You can check the Disneyland Calendar up to six weeks in advance to find out which days have Grad Nites in 2019.

"Disneyland Forever" - June 7-Sept. 2, 2019

The much-loved nighttime extravaganza fireworks and projection show from Disneyland's 60th Anniversary Diamond Celebration returns for an unknown length of time.

SUMMER

“The Lion King” Celebration - June 7-Sept. 2, 2019

Come celebrate the 25th anniversary of “The Lion King” with a traveling troupe of storytellers who will engage guests through story, song and dance. You can honor the spirit of Africa through crafts, music and more. We can already feel the love tonight!

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge - Now Open

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge was open for guests with park tickets and reservations to enter the land until June 23. Beginning June 24, guests no longer needed a reservation. A same-day reservation for Oga's Cantina* and to build a lightsaber* at Savi's Workshop can be made in advance or same day at 7:00 a.m. through the Disneyland app or online.

*Reservations are required for the lightsaber experience and to Oga’s Cantina. You can now make Droid building reservations as well.

Soarin' Over California - Now-Aug. 31, 2019

Back for a limited time, Soarin' Over California returns to Disney California Adventure for the summer. Swoop in for a nostalgic ride that takes you on a journey through the Golden State. Glide past the Golden Gate Bridge, Yosemite Valley, Malibu and more. Mmmm ... I can smell the orange groves!

JULY

4th of July

Disneyland Events in 2018 and 2019 - 4th of July fireworks

Disneyland Park celebrates America's independence during July 4th with red, white and blue decorations, special eats and drinks, and "Disney's Celebrate America! A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky." This can be one of the busiest days of the year. Disney California Adventure also has some fireworks in a patriotic salute before World of Color.

Disneyland’s Birthday - July 17, 2019

"To all who come to this happy place; welcome." Disneyland opened on July 17, 1955. Every year on this anniversary the park celebrates Disneyland’s Birthday. There are special souvenirs available on that day, and some people choose to dress dapper for the occasion. You may expect a birthday cavalcade or other form of entertainment with many Disney characters at points throughout the day. Some people try to attend every year despite the crowds. Even though Disneyland does not actively promote this day, everyone seems to be hopping in droves to the park to join this birthday party. If you plan to attend this day, arrive early and expect typical summer crowds.

The Disney Gallery Presents Happy Haunts Materialize

The Haunted Mansion turns 50 this summer. Enjoy a display of artwork with stories behind the creation of the Haunted Mansion at the Disney Gallery in Disneyland. Special food items and memorabilia are for purchase in the park.

Haunted Mansion's 50th Anniversary After Hours Event - Aug. 7-8 or Aug. 8-9, 2019

Welcome, foolish mortals, to a celebration of 50 years of the Haunted Mansion "Retirement Unliving" at Disneyland Park. Happy haunts are materializing for this after-hours event, a so-called "under the hill" soiree that occurs during the graveyard shift from 1 a.m to 4 a.m. inside the park. Check-in and shopping get started earlier at the Disneyland Hotel. You can dig up some commemorative estate merchandise and enjoy character encounters, special entertainment, photo ops, sips and savors, rides and supernatural surprises. Critter Country, New Orleans Square, Frontierland and Adventureland attractions will be open for this 13th hour event that takes place after the park closes. Tickets go on sale for this very limited event on Thursday, May 23 at 10 a.m. Pacific. "Hurry back" to this link for more details and to purchase tickets. Note: Only one ticket per reservation.

CHOC Walk in the Park - Sunday, Aug. 11, 2019

For more information visit the CHOC Walk in the Park site.

Disneyland Events - Marvel Cosplay Mickey and MinnieCelebrate 80 years of Marvel Super Heroes - Aug. 9-Sept. 2, 2019

On Aug. 31, the Marvel Super Heroes turn 80. Guests who visit Disney California Adventure that day may receive a commemorative button upon entering the park (while supplies last). Aug. 9 through Sept. 2, guests can celebrate in several ways. Guests can suit up in their most powerful DisneyBound outfits (park costume guidelines apply) and get their faces painted to meet Super Heroes. Several classic Disney characters cosplaying as their favorite Super Heroes are out greeting guests, as well. We hoppened across Mickey as Captain America and Minnie dressed as Black Widow! Guests can jump right into an "Avengers Assemble" comic book for photo ops, and power up with special limited-time themed menu items. Commemorative merchandise is available for purchase. Fans can channel their inner Stan Lee by learning to draw Super Heroes inside Animation Academy on Aug. 10, 17, 24, 30, 31 and Sept. 1. Depending on how well the drawing turns out, this can make a toadally cool free souvenir.

Plaza de la Familia - Sept. 6, 2019-Halloween

Plaza de la Familiar Disney California Adventure - Disneyland Special Events in 2019

Plaza de la Familia celebrates the Disney-Pixar film “Coco” and the bonds of family at Disney California Adventure. Taking place at Paradise Gardens, this celebration features Mariachi music, delicious Mexican foods, a Tree of Life interactive photo exhibit, wing photo walls, free coloring and crafts and The World of Coco exhibit. Face painting is available for a fee. The highlight is “A Musical Celebration of Coco” — a show that features dance, storytellers and original songs from “Coco,” along with an amazing puppet performance from Miguel and some dancing skeletons.

Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort - Sep. 6-Oct. 31, 2019 

Guide to Disneyland Events in 2018 and 2019 - Halloween Time

Halloween is a big-time affair at Disneyland Park, with plenty of decorations, entertainment and other goodies that typically take place mid-September through Oct. 31. Main Street, U.S.A. is turned into a pumpkin festival with hundreds of hand-carved pumpkins on display. You can gather with some of Disney's biggest villains along with other favorite Disney characters for meet-and-greets — in costumes, of course! Jack Skellington and Sally are popular over by the Haunted Mansion, and Cruella de Vil stalks about Main Street and near the park entrance. Guests can enjoy the seasonal entertainment plus special eats and drinks. There are also seasonal overlays to some of the resort's very best rides, including the Haunted Mansion Holiday hosted by Jack Skellington. The Halloween Screams show is now a projection and special effects show that will light up Disneyland park most nights of the Halloween season. The show will be enhanced with fireworks on select nights.

Disney California Adventure has gotten into the spirit, too. Haul-O-Ween in Cars Land has the residents of Radiator Springs dressing in silly costumes and decorating their homes and shops. Luigi’s Honkin’ Haul-O-Ween and Mater’s Graveyard JamBOOree are two ride overlays in Cars Land. Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission Breakout! also gets a Halloween overlay, becoming Guardians of the Galaxy — Monsters after Dark after 5 p.m.

Disneyland Halloween Time festivities are included with regular park admission! We've got a full guide to Halloween Time, so be sure to check it out!

Dapper Day Disneybounding - Guide to Disneyland Events in 2018 and 2019

Holidays at the Disneyland Resort - Nov. 8, 2019-Jan. 6, 2020

Disneyland Events in 2018 and 2019- Holidays at Disneyland

Like Halloween, Disneyland goes all out during Christmas. The parks transform into a winter wonderland from mid-November until early January. This is one of the biggest Disneyland events. Sleeping Beauty Castle is alight in sparkling icicles and thousands of shimmering lights. Snow falls nightly. Beautiful Main Street U.S.A. is decked out in fabulous holiday decor. Across the way at Disney California Adventure, Buena Vista Street and Cars Land are decorated as well for the Festival of Holidays, which offers many festival booths with tasty treats and musical selections representing several cultures.

There is a nightly Christmas tree lighting on Buena Vista Street, as well as a special holiday World of Color. You’ll want to join Mickey, Minnie and the Three Caballeros at the Disney Viva Navidad! Street Party. Two Cars Land rides receive holiday overlays: Mater’s Jingle Jamboree and Luigi’s Joy to the Whirl have exciting holiday songs. The celebration wraps up with Three Kings Day Jan. 3-6, 2020.

Back at Disneyland, Jack Skellington's takeover continues at Haunted Mansion Holiday. The "it's a small world" overlay is the merriest cruise that ever set sail. Once the sun goes down, the façade turns into one of the most beautiful holiday lights displays you'll ever see…be sure to catch the ceremonial lighting and projection show each evening. You'll definitely want to stay for A Christmas Fantasy Parade and the Believe…in Holiday Magic fireworks show! Santa Claus greets guests in both parks. There is no hard-ticket Christmas Party like Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom, and all of the Christmas festivities are included with regular admission. You can read more about it in our guide to Holidays at Disneyland.

New Year's Eve at the Disneyland Resort

The Christmas festivities continue through early January. If you're planning to visit around the New Year, you definitely want to stay for the "Ring in the New Year" fireworks spectacular! There are usually two fireworks shows (around 9 p.m. and just before midnight). California Adventure usually offers a dance party, fireworks and a New Year's Eve countdown as well, although this is not confirmed for 2018. New Year's Eve is one of Disneyland’s most popular days to visit either park, so follow these tips for spending New Year’s Eve at Disneyland to get the most out of your visit.

Our guide to Disneyland Events in 2019 is never really complete. As new events are announced and others receive official dates, we'll add them here. Check back often to see what's hopping all year round. We're a pretty lucky Frog Family in that we're able to visit the Disneyland Resort often. Visiting is never routine, but knowing that there are outstanding special events throughout the year means that there is always a new experience waiting for us.

Thanks for reading our guide to Disneyland Events in 2019. It's always a great time to visit the parks, but especially with so many terrific Disneyland events. Have you visited during any of these events? Share your memories in comments below. Have a question about any of the events? Ask away!

Hello, we are going to Disneyland April 29th to May 3rd. I see now that there are two days that Disneyland California Adventure is having a special superhero event after hours. We are not interested in attending this event but wondering how this may affect the daytime crowds in Disneyland and California Adventures.

Many thanks for your advice

Lived in SoCal for 20 years and always went Labor Day...no crowds and still summer hours and attractions. Now living in the Midwest and trying to make a trade show in Vegas in September coincide with a Disneyland side trip, but not being a "local" anymore, am unsure of September hours and events, specifically Fantasmic. Looking at the week of September 9-13. I know it's too soon to make any guarantees, but any idea when (if) Fantasmic will still be showing and what days of the week?

Unfortunately, the only information we have at this time is that Fantasmic will be reopening in early March. If this is indeed the case, you should be in luck for your September trip!

Do you have any idea if there will be any special Star Wars Celebrations at Disneyland around May 4 this year? I haven't seen any announcement of it, but I know they did it in previous years. I am hoping not to have any extra ticketed events during our stay. (We still don't have our dates lined up yet-- trying to make all the schedules match!)

So... I'm seeing that from January to "Spring 2019" the Castle is being refurbished, which I'm assuming means no fireworks or parades on main street. Also that Fantasmic! is down for refurb during the same time.

What exactly do they mean by "Spring"? Because we are going for the week of Spring break (March 17 - 23) and I just cant bring myself to believe that Disney would have ALL THREE of their biggest events (Fireworks, Parades, Fantasmic!) CLOSED during Spring Break - one of the BUSIEST times of the year?? ESPECIALLY when the Food & Wine festival is going on during that time too .

Is that TRUE??

Because if it is please let me know NOW so I can cancel my vacation package. I've been to Dl many times with my own kids but this time I am brining my mom with us and she hasnt been since the 80's when she took us as kids. We just lost my dad last year so I want her to go back to her favorite and nostalgic place ( Their honeymoon was in Disneyworld). I didn't want to put our trip of until Summer because of the heat and the crowds will be even worse especially with Galaxy's Edge rumored to open in the Summer instead of the fall. But there's no point in spending all that money to go and re-introduce my mom to 21rst century Disneyland that I'm always talking up to her and telling her she needs to see, and then not see any parades or fireworks or even the Castle. Sheesh. I could suffer through doing without one or even two of those things (Like I did last year when we went while the Main Street tracks were being refurbed) but not ALL three.

Hi New Belle,

Fantasmic's closure is expected to last through early March, so we would hope that it would be back up by your visit. For the castle, we would expect work to continue longer since it says through spring, although it maybe that the major refurb is done by spring break. We just don't know! There is a new show that just debuted, Mickey's Mix Magic, and it's happening with fireworks on weekends (without fireworks on other days). Here is the video Tad shot.

Hoppy planning!

WE will be in Disneyland Jan 17-24 2019. I am having a hard time finding out of there are any parades or fireworks besides Fantasmic. I am trying to plan our days for dining reservations and when to go off the park, but don't want to end up leaving if some special event is happening. Can you help me?

PS We are travelling with our handicapped son so I am looking at buying the dining plan with Fantasmic to try to ensure better position for viewing--is that a good idea?

Reply
Dec 27, 2018 at 1:59 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Sherry,

There is a new nighttime projection show, Mickey's Mix Magic, and Mickey's Soundsational Parade returns Jan. 18. While those two entertainment offerings aren't yet listed on the Disneyland schedule, we expect they will run daily!

The dining packages definitely offer the most central and closest viewing with the shortest time investment. Plus you can sit rather than stand. If your son uses a wheelchair, you will be seated behind the people sitting on the ground, but it will still be a nice close viewing area.

Hoppy planning!

Hi Roxanne!

That is peak time at Disneyland, so we expect the park to be operating at maximum hours. It is likely to be 8 a.m. to 12 a.m. but they do not release the hours and entertainment calendar until 6 weeks in advance, so check back in November. There are usually Extra Magic Hours in both parks that week.

We are heading out on vacation this weekend (August 24th-August 26th) to visit both the Disneyland Parks and Universal Studios. My family originally wanted to go to Disneyland Park on Sunday but I just noticed the CHOC Walk the Park event will be held that day. My question is does Disneyland get crowded for the CHOC event? and if so should we head to Universal Studies on that day instead?

We are debating whether to go to Disneyland 10/4-10/5 (Thu-Fri) or 11/2-11/3 (Fri/Sat) this year. Crowd levels look similar those days. The two requests from our daughter are Nightmare Before Christmas Haunted Mansion AND Fantasmic. Disney has not yet posted and hours info for these dates yet, but can you tell me if Fantasmic has historically been running during these times? Mickey's Halloween Party is running on 10/5 and I am guessing they don't typically also do Fantasmic on these nights? Thank you!!!!

Reply
Jul 9, 2018 at 12:02 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Rebecca!

There typically are not any showings of Fantasmic! on Halloween Party nights due to different entertainment taking place on Rivers of America and trick-or-treat stations set up in the viewing areas. It's tough to say what entertainment will be taking place so much later in the year, but Fantasmic! tends to run Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights (except for party nights) so 11/2 or 11/3 are your best bets! Haunted Mansion Holiday will be running then as well, as the post-Halloween season is quite enjoyable and peaceful!

Hi Chelsea,

That is a really great time to visit! The park will be much quieter than usual. It will likely be hot, so be prepared for hot weather. The first day of Halloween Time is not terribly crowded except for the Haunted Mansion Holiday area, and there will be lines to meet Jack and Sally. You may see a lot of fans of Halloween time and Disney Villains dressed up in fun outfits and accessories. But this is definitely one of our favorite times to visit!

I'm planning to come the 2nd week of September with several grandkids. Would kind of like to avoid the Halloween party dates as I don't really want to pay extra for that, but also don't want to get kicked out of the park at 7pm. Would the parties start that early in the month? Do they have more than one a week? Also, I heard they may close attractions prior to Halloween events to decorate them. We would hate to miss out on certain rides. Anyone have any take on this?

Hi Connie,

Last year the party started on September 20. We aren't yet sure of the exact dates for this year, but would assume it would be pretty similar to last year (although that can always change). Hop over to our Disneyland refurbishments post to see what rides/attractions will be closed. Usually, Haunted Mansion and Space Mountain close down near the end of August for their holiday overlays. Hope you have a great trip!

Hi

We traditionally have always gone to WDW for a vacation bu have decided to go to Disneyland Resort in 2018. We are somewhat open to travel dates - looking at your calendar it looks like the 3rd week of September is a much less crowded time to visit as 3 days that week are green. Any other times to suggest? Also would they be running the Halloween party at Disneyland by this time as we enjoy the one in WDW. One last thing - How does the FastPass work in California, as I know it was the old style they used to use in Florida but heard it has changed now.
