PHOTO REPORT: Disneyland & Disney California Adventure 9/3/21 (Halloween Time Begins, Haunted Mansion Holiday History, The Dapper Dans Return, & More)
Hey there, hi there, ho there! It’s Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort. The festivities officially kicked off today and we were on-hand to see the debut of this year’s Haunted Mansion Holiday, tons of new themed food and lots of other spooky fun. So join us as we head around both parks to get into the spirit of the season.
These new dark lanterns are foreboding and a nice compliment to all the Jack-o-lanterns strewn about.
This year’s gingerbread house is a stunner. Haunted Mansion Holiday is celebrating 20 years of making Christmas this year, and this is honored in the gingerbread house with a XX inside the wreath’s mouth.
You can ride along with us in our full on-ride video, right here:
We just couldn’t get enough of that gingerbread house, so we came over to the Magic Key Lounge at Starcade in Tomorrowland to check out the photo op featuring concept art and photos from each of the 20 gingerbread houses that have graced the mansion ballroom over the last two decades.

Back in Adventureland, we noticed that Tarzan’s Treehouse has been covered in scaffolding and scrim for a refurbishment.
But other scaffolding has come down recently. The second story refurbishments of the New Orleans Square balconies have been finished, leaving space for Jack and Sally to come say hello to guests passing by.

As we head across the way to try all the festive foods at the other park, we saw the same spooky treatment given to the DCA banners.
