Seven Ways To Enjoy Halloween Time at Disneyland Resort Without A Mickey’s Halloween Party Ticket

If you find yourself at Disneyland Resort on Halloween without a Mickey’s Halloween Party ticket, don’t stress! There are plenty of Halloween-themed things to do around the resort that don’t require a party ticket or a 200 percent ticket price markup by someone on Craigslist. Here are seven ways to celebrate on October 31

Take A Stroll Through Cars Land

Cars Land at Disney California Adventure is transformed for “Haul-O-Ween” into a spooky dreamland complete with two Halloween-themed ride overlays, cars in costumes and decorations everywhere.

“Mater’s Graveyard JamBOOree” has new ride songs and decor.

Cars Land Halloween festivities are available during normal park hours and DCA is open to both Halloween party and regular park guests on Halloween party nights.

Ride “Guardians of the Galaxy – Monsters After Dark at DCA

Enjoy the same drop thrill ride with a twist after 5:00 PM. New storylines and music transform this ride into an, arguably, even more frightening experience than the original.
