Even though Disney Halloween officially begins on September 15 at Tokyo Disneyland, we visited the park a day early to check out all of the Halloween decorations.
Disney Halloween 2023 Decorations at Tokyo Disneyland
In front of the entrance to Tokyo Disneyland, the Mickey floral display has been transformed for Halloween, depicting Mickey as a vampire, complete with white fangs and a black cape.
Even Tinker Bell is getting in on the Halloween spirit and has dressed up as a witch for her appearance on the Tokyo Disneyland entrance sign.
Jack-o’-lanterns in beds of fall leaves are beneath the Tokyo Disneyland sign, on each column.
An orange banner and purple banner featuring 40th anniversary jack-o’-lanterns and Halloween snacks are on the columns.
Lights shine on the banners at night.
Behind the entrance archway, the resort’s 40th anniversary “Dream Garland” has been updated for Disney Halloween 2023, and hangs across the balconies above. The Dream Garland is a special decoration for the 40th anniversary, and represents the idea that guests, Cast Members and Disney friends are connected, like pieces of garland, and celebrate the anniversary together in grand fashion.
The Dream Garland features the “Lonesome Ghosts” and the Disney Halloween 2023 logo.
In World Bazaar, the giant Mickey Jack-o’-lantern has appeared, ready to light up the night for Disney Halloween.
The jack-o’-lantern face has fangs, just like the floral display outside.
The giant jack-o’-lantern sits on a pedestal with “Disney Halloween” on the front, against a spiderweb.
Around the giant jack-o’-lantern are smaller Mickey jack-o’-lanterns. The ones facing towards the park entrance have large mouths with candelabras inside.
The smaller pumpkins sit on vases with flowers spilling out of them.
The pumpkins at the back, facing Cinderella Castle, feature the “40 Dream-Go-Round” logo.
The back of the giant Mickey jack-o’-lantern reads “Disney Halloween.”
At night, the jack-o’-lanterns are all lit up from within.
In the castle hub area, scarecrows, tombstones, and jack-o’-lanterns are dotted throughout the landscaping.
There are Mickey and Minnie scarecrows.
Everything is illuminated at nightfall.
Life-size figures of the “Lonesome Ghosts,” in their hats and capelets, lounge around one planter.
They are singing and playing their instruments. “Lonesome Ghosts” is a 1937 Disney short film.
The gravestones appear to be for the ghosts.
Banners on the lampposts feature Mickey & Friends dressed up for Halloween.
Cinderella Castle is lit-up orange and purple at night.
Adorable decorations also featuring ghosts have taken over Toontown, including this sign on the walkway pointing to “Pumpkin Street.”
The windows of these doors have been decorated with images of ghosts and jack-o’-lanterns, with “Trick” and “Treat” above the doors.
This set of dumbbells on the ground are now jack-o’-lantern dumbbells.
A ghost in a striped prisoner’s uniform is trying to escape the Dog Pound, which has jack-o’-lantern decals.
Cartoon-ish jack-o’-lanterns are throughout the land.
Outside the gas station is a pumpkin car with a bat hood ornament.
It even has a Mickey jack-o’-lantern license plate.
A string of Mickey & Friends as jack-o’-lanterns hangs between the gas station’s columns.
We also got to see the return of the Spooky “Boo!” Parade, although its sneak peek performance was modified due to high temperatures in Tokyo.
