Halloween time at Disneyland is my absolute favorite time to visit. The summer rush is gone, rides get autumn makeovers, and shades of both pastel and bright orange cover the park (along with purple and black undertones).
My birthday was at the end of September and to celebrate we went to Disneyland for the new Halloween party: Oogie Boogie's Bash.
Read more for the guide on what to do, see, eat, and drink at Oogie Boogie's Bash!
Oogie Boogie's Bash
Two Rumors that I need to address first...
Trust me, you WANT to go Trick-or-Treating at Disneyland. No matter your age or dietary needs, Disney has you covered. They give out everything from candy, to apple slices, to gold fish, and even fancy cookies. And they give you SO MUCH that the bag they give you for free will be full by the second treat trail you visit. I recommend bringing your own trick or treat bag, but if you forget it there are larger bags available for purchase at their stores.
I suggest trick-or-treat trails from 6-8 so you can hit all the trails before the shows start!

Place to catch a break??
I loathe crowds, so I always find a nice spot to get away for a few minutes while at the park. I promise these places exist!! When we were at the Bash we found the Paradise Garden Grill area to be completely empty! The restaurant is closed, the lights are half off, but the Coco themed decor and Did de Los Muertos altars are still out (there's also a restroom and an ATM!).
Take a much needed break from the crowds and recharge your tired bones.
A Halloween guide to Disneyland is coming soon, including a spooky treat section... after I go back to do some more research! haha
On the last trip I had my go to corndog with apples, my friends got me this amazing slice of birthday cake, and I accidentally missed (but still took pictures of) my favorite: Disney's Carmel Apples!
