Downtown Disney District is Frightfully Delightful During Halloween Time at Disneyland Resort
From the Disney Parks Blog and written by: Valerie Lee
It’s Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort, and the Downtown Disney District is a bubbling cauldron of exciting seasonal things to do, sights to see, shopping to explore and treats to discover! Make no bones about it, you’ll want to carve out time to join us for all the fall fun!
New! Pluto’s Pumpkin Pursuit
Partake in our new pumpkin hunt in the Downtown Disney District! First, purchase a game board and stickers at select Disney merchandise locations, including World of Disney, and search for 13 different hidden pumpkins throughout the district, each inspired by a different Disney character. Then, place the corresponding stickers on your game board! Whether players choose to hunt for pumpkins or not, they can return their game board to a redemption location at World of Disney or Disney’s Pin Trader for a chilling surprise.*
Along with Pluto’s Pumpkin Pursuit, our Horticulture and Resort Enhancement teams have been filling the planters with more than 1,100 whimsically painted pumpkins, 2,000 real pumpkins and 300 gourds!
