IT'S THE GREAT MICKEY PUMPKIN!! Halloween is approaching kids and ghouls and Disneyland decked out their resort mid September. The whole Disneyland resort looks sooo cool this year! Usually Disneyland park just decorated and some of Downtown Disney, but not this year! California Adventure park has also decorated for the ghoulish holiday and it looks sick! Disneyland is usually more Fall theme with the oranges and browns and DCA is black, purple, and bats theme and is hosted by Mister Oogie Boogie himself from Tim Burton's film The Nightmare Before Christmas! So cute and you get the best of both worlds of fall and Halloween when celebrating at the parks!
I would highly recommend to plan on visiting Disneyland Resort in the fall because it's decked out and even some rides change for the fall time. Here are some highlights from DCA!
Bat Wing Raspberry Sundae
This spoopy, yummy sundae is only sold at DCA at Clarabelle's Ice Cream Parlor. It's raspberry ice cream in a chocolate waffle cone, topped with raspberry sauce, and whipped cream! It also comes with two chocolate bat wing cookies! Super good and sweet! Loved the raspberry ice cream. $7.49
Spoke-y Cone Macaroon
This is an ooey -gooey, delicious treat only sold at one of th cones at the Cozy Cones in DCA's Cars Land! It's a marshmallow stuffed macaroon with small candy corns in it! As I am a candy corn lover, I love this sweet treat!
DCA's Cars Land
KUDOS to Disney Imagineers for going all out with the decorating for the cutest land in the Carburetor Canyon and DCA! Cars Land looks phenominal with the purple, orange, and green lights strung along the neon signs and some cute bats and garland hung up! ALL the cars are dressed up to their best and they look so great! Mater won the best costume this year if you ask me! Two of the rides at Cars Land changed a little for the holiday too, like the Mater Ghostyard Jamboree and Luigi's Rollickin' Roadsters added some new music to their dancing cars! SO CUTE! SO much detail at this land so do yourself a favor and check them out!!!
Mater is SO CUTE and scary as Count Dracula!! BEWARE of long lines for the photo ops here at Cars Land! BUT it's always worth it!
Pay attention to all the details at Cars Land, like these flags by Ramone's!
At the Cozy Cone Motel, five cones sell so much yummy food there! AND almost every food is served in a cone shape! Some popular treats there are the churros, chilli in a bread cone, Mac and cheese coated with hot Cheetos dusty, and the flavored popcorn! My favorite treat there is the Spoke-y Cone Macaroon mentioned above!
RIP The Fabulous Hudson Hornett
Buena Vista Street AND HOLLYWOOD LAND
The new Guardians of the Galaxy attraction has a new mission only to be ridden and battled at night time! It's called Guardians of the Galaxy: Monsters After Dark and it is a thrilling, fast ride, battling huge monsters with the Guardians gang! So fun, try to get on that ride when it opens for it at 5 pm before the line turns into 100 minutes long!
The Headless Horseman is found entering into Hollywood Land by Buena Vista Street. So cool and spooky!
Thanks for reading and hope you enjoy this recap of DCA! This is one of my favorite parks with it's modern look and attractions and usually being less crowded. Disney definitely did a superb job with decorating DCA this spooky season! DCA is decorated until October 31st, 2017. GO CHECK IT OUT!!
HAPPY HALLOWEEN GHOULS AND GHOSTS! 👻
