Win Two Tickets to Mickey’s Halloween Party at Disneyland!

Mickey’s Halloween Party invites guests, yes, that means adults and children, to dress up in costume and trick-or-treat for candy (and healthy treats) throughout Disneyland. It is a special ticketed event, meaning that Disneyland closes early to those visiting with a regular admission ticket. Guests that purchase a special event ticket can arrive before the party to “mix in” with regular Disneyland guests for three hours prior to the start of Mickey’s private bash. Basically, that means it is a much better deal to buy the ticket to Mickey’s Halloween Party and get there for the early hours — you get some quality park time and the fun festivities of the special event. It’s a win-win.

That isn’t to say those regular guests can’t partake in some seasonal adventure. Halloween Time at Disneyland Resort, to be frighteningly frank, is a lot of spooky fun. Well, it’s not that spooky, your kids will be fine, but it sure is festive, and the fun part is spot on. You don’t have to attend Mickey’s Halloween Party to enjoy the following:

  • Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy in Tomorrowland begins as a typical Space Mountain adventure, but suddenly launches voyagers into a haunted section of the universe.  Ghosts appear out of the starry darkness and swirling galaxies of Space Mountain, reaching out as if to grab guests as they speed through space. The ghost looks more like some sort of freshly peeled zombie than a cluster of stars, and as such it is probably the scariest thing in the entire park. My 9-year-old loved it and the 6-year-old rode with his eyes shut.
  • Haunted Mansion Holiday, in New Orleans Square, is transformed to a mix of Halloween spookiness and Christmas tradition, inspired by the classic animated film “Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas.” As Jack Skellington returns to take over the Haunted Mansion, the traditional Halloween/Christmas gingerbread house rises to a new height in the Mansion Ballroom; it’s nine feet tall, with special spooky surprises in this year’s design. This is one of the coolest things that Disneyland does each year, and the entire family loves it.
  • Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland is transformed for the Pumpkin Festival. More than 300 pumpkins are on display and no two are the same. Not even Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum (assuming they have them, that is).

Those attending the after-hours Mickey’s Halloween Party (remember, it is a separate-ticket event) will have access to those attractions listed above and a whole lot more!

Additional highlights of Mickey’s Halloween Party include the “Halloween Screams” fireworks spectacular, hosted by “Master of Scare-omonies” Jack Skellington and presented exclusively for guests of Mickey’s Halloween Party; “Mickey’s Costume Party” cavalcade; dozens of Disney Characters dressed up for Halloween fun; and DJ dance parties. Just for Halloween, those mischievous Disney villains are plotting to take over Town Square on Main Street, U.S.A. Nearly all of the favorite Disneyland rides and attractions will be open to make the night a real scream.

Mickey’s Halloween Party runs on the following nights: Oct. 2, 5, 9, 12, 15, 19, 23, 26, 29 and 31. Tickets purchased in advance are $54 most days, while tickets purchased on the event days are $64.  All tickets to Mickey’s Halloween Party on Monday, Oct. 29, and Halloween Night, Wednesday, Oct. 31, are $69.

Okay, I took a good portion of that from the official press release, because, come on, that’s a lot of info. Here’s what you need to know as someone that has been there (my family and I were Disney’s guest on Friday, September 28):

Star Wars at Disneyland Halloween

That says it all, right? Look at the smiles on those freshly shaven Jedi faces. That’s a good time, people.

Disneyland HalloweenThose Storm Troopers didn’t stand a chance.

Also, where’s Perry?

Agent P at Disneyland

That should read, “Hey, where’s Whit’s youngest kid?” He was back at the Disneyland Hotel (not provided by Disney) sleeping because we waited until the end of the night to fill our bags with candy, something I recommend so you can do everything else first and not have to carry it all night, but it was too much for a tired little boy and I took him back to the room early — don’t worry, he got plenty of candy. Fun fact: Disneyland does not run out of candy. That is a direct quote from numerous Cast Members!

But enough about me, here is the part you came for: Win two (2) tickets to the October 9, 2012 Mickey’s Halloween Party at Disneyland Park by leaving a comment in the section below. Please leave your email in the space provided or I will not be able to contact you. The date is not transferable so I will draw a winner at random on Oct. 3, 2012 at 5 p.m. PST — I will then contact said winner for a mailing address. If I don’t hear back within two (2) hours I will draw another winner and so forth and so on. I’m mailing the tickets myself, and I want to make sure they arrive in plenty of time. As this is a special event at Disneyland all entries must be from the SoCal area. Must be over 18 or have a parent’s permission and valid email.

Happy Halloween!
