Get those costumes ready, because this Halloween party has frightfully fun tricks and treats for all ages. With the purchase of a separate ticket, you can attend this amazing party on select nights in September and October at Disney’s California Adventure!

The parties will take place from 6:00pm – 11:pm, but you will be able to enter California Adventure as early as 3:00 with your event ticket. There is a limited capacity for these events, so it will seem like you have the park to yourself!

First up, TRICK OR TREAT! You can collect goodies along special treat trails throughout the park. They will have Halloween-inspired music, fun decor, and Villains! Plus, you may even spot more familiar faces! Personally, this is where I like to make my money back! Hit the treat trails FREQUENTLY and load up!

Speaking of familiar faces, get ready to meet some of your favorite Disney characters dressed in their Halloween costumes! And grab a photo or six to remember it!

We love a parade, and the Frightfully Fun Parade, while not NEARLY as great as the Boo To You Parade, is certainly no exception! You won’t want to miss this, as well as the bats that fly around the bell tower at Carthay Circle! Frightful fun for everyone!
