Halloween Time is haunting the Disneyland Resort throughout the month of October and on Friday I had a chance to speak to some of the eerie experts that help create the special entertainment and offerings throughout the spooky season. With Halloween themed decorations adorning the theme park’s many paths and buildings, guests are immersed into the holiday from the moment they pass through the turnstiles.
To find out about what’s new for 2011 during Halloween Time at Disneyland, as well as a few behind-the-scenes tidbits about how it’s all put together each year, I spoke with manager of Disneyland Entertainment Operations Jennifer Bellman and manager of Disneyland Resort Enhancement Dave Caranci, standing in front of the creepiest attraction of them all, The Haunted Mansion. I also had a chance to join Blue Bayou chef Moises Carranza in creating the famous muffaletta sandwich, available in New Orleans Square during Halloween Time.

In addition to Haunted Mansion Holiday, characters meet-and-greets, and plenty of food, Disneyland also offers a scarier version of Space Mountain dubbed “Ghost Galaxy” and the nighttime night-so-scary Mickey’s Halloween Party featuring the Halloween Screams fireworks show and trick-or-treating – all part of Halloween Time, which continues at the resort through the end of October.
