Grim grinning ghosts are out to socialize in the Disney Parks, and they are looking to celebrate the spooky season with you! If there’s one thing the Disney Parks take seriously, it’s the holidays. From decorations to special events to seasonal menu items, tons of new things have hit the Parks as we head towards Halloween.

The Disneyland Resort in California is home to grand celebrations, including Oogie Boogie Bash and the ornately decorated Haunted Mansion Holiday. Beginning September 1 each year, the Haunted Mansion Holiday attraction is decorated top to bottom by Jack Skellington, with inspiration from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.

About Megan Losey

As a Disney foodie, I love writing about Disney food and snacks. Some of my favorites are the Carrot Cake Cookie from Trolley Car Cafe, the Mickey Beignets from Port Orleans French Quarter, and the Apple Blossom from Port Orleans Riverside. When I'm visiting the parks, you can find me on Main Street taking in the good vibe of Magic Kingdom or relaxing with a drink at the Polynesian watching the fireworks from the beach. As a previous Cast Member, I will always have a special place in my heart for the Magic Kingdom, especially Main Street U.S.A.
