Halloween Tribute to Disneyland & Disney California Adventure
With all of the painful news of Disneyland’s ongoing closure, it’s time to celebrate something wonderful. And this time of year is the time to do that. Join us as we visit both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure to recall the magic and festivities of Halloween. We see Main Street, U.S.A. all decked out, a unique pumpkin way finding experience in the central hub; visit the pumpkin tree in Frontierland as well as a festival Dia de los Muertos. And what could be better than Nightmare Before Christmas at the Haunted Mansion. Then it’s off down Buena Vista Street at Disney California Adventure to visit the Headless Horseman; check out Coco in Paradise Gardens Park; and take a look at the most unusual Halloween theming ever in Radiator Springs. It’s a full itinerary, so join us!

Jason hIt’s Halloween, but any time of the year is a great time to celebrate the infamous Haunted Mansion. We are fortunate to have former Disney Imagineer and author of The Haunted Mansion: Imagineering a Disney Classic. We take the time to talk about those Imagineering pioneers who made the mansion a possibility, from Marc Davis, Claude Coates and Rolly Crump, to Ken Anderson, X Attencio, and the original Imagineer, Walt Disney. We’ll talk about what makes this attraction so amazing, and share our favorite moments as well as insights. Join as we celebrate The Haunted Mansion.
Jim Korkis is our guest as he shares how Disney and Halloween have come together over the decades. We cover all things haunted, from The Tower of Terror to the Haunted Mansion. We talk about the advent of Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Parties, and some of the best Disney villains, shorts and scary moments in the movies. Did you know that The Headless Horseman almost had an attraction when Magic Kingdom opened in 1971? Did you know that there are different versions of the Halloween tree on the Disney Cruise Line? We’ll share all this and more.
Fall is upon us and at the Magic Kingdom, that usually means a big salute to Halloween. In the absence of Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, we cover what Disney has tried to do to make the holiday succeed during this pandemic. We look at decorations, character cavalcades, food, and merchandise. We also pay homage to those missing pieces this year. All this and more on this Disney at Play post & podcast.
And Stay Tuned, Halloween is not over! We have more to come!
