Little ghouls and goblins can celebrate Disney's Halloween Time at the "happiest place on earth" from mid-September through October when Disneyland adds an autumn and Halloween theme to both Disneyland Resort parks. Show up in your Halloween costume and have your photo taken with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto and friends dressed in their favorite get-ups as well.

The Realm Makeover

Fall decorations include Disney character jack-o-lanterns at the front entrance and orange and yellow bunting up and down Main Street.

The Mickey Mouse flower garden below the train station gets a Halloween mask of mini pumpkins. A 12-foot-tall Mickey Mouse jack-o-lantern dominates Town Square, with more pumpkin-head characters around the statues of Walt Disney holding hands with Mickey Mouse. The fireworks show also gets a Jack Skellington makeover. During HalloweenTime, Zocalo Park in Frontierland will host some of Disney's most famous villains.

At California Adventure, the Hollywood Pictures Backlot is transformed into a horror flick set filled with favorite Disney villains.
