Recently, Disneyland Resort provided a peek at how Haunted Mansion Holiday comes to life each year, and now Disney shared a look at the behind-the-scenes effort that goes into decorating for Halloween Time.
Many of the Halloween decorations at the annual celebration are easy to spot, such as the enormous Mickey Mouse jack-o’-lantern on Main Street, USA. However, many frightfully fascinating details can go overlooked on your visit to Disneyland Resort. In this video, you’ll get a glimpse at how Disneyland Resort Cast Members use a late-night graveyard shift to transform the parks with haunting Halloween details.
WATCH – DECORATING FOR HALLOWEEN TIME AT DISNEYLAND RESORT:
“You do things in the middle of the night that no one sees, and they might not ever know that you do it,” says Jeff Maloney, a member of the Resort Horticulture team. “It takes people time to find these little things we do and it’s pretty awesome, because sometimes it’s not about the big picture, and at Disneyland Resort, we’re always about the fine details that people come here for.”
In addition to the spooky decor, Halloween Time brings a host of delicious treats to the parks. Desserts include a variety of seasonal churros, Pumpkin Spice Mickey Beignets, a Graveyard Cupcake, and more. For those craving a savory snack, there’s a Halloween Hot Dog, Mickey Bread with Fangs, and Anti Vampire Pizza, to name a few.
While you’re visiting, be sure to check out the seasonal transformation of Haunted Mansion, which becomes Haunted Mansion Holiday for a limited time. Each year, the attraction receives a “Nightmare Before Christmas” makeover and also features a new Holiday Gingerbread House. This year’s creepy confection is inspired by classic monster movies.
Halloween Time takes over Disneyland Resort through October 31. For more information on the season’s spirited events, head over to the Disneyland Resort website.
