Disney's Halloween Festival

Disney's Halloween Festival

Where even the pumpkins have sprouted mouse ears...

Disneyland Paris at Halloween is colour and laughter, games and sweets; the festival of Autumn as celebrated in Disney's American homeland. The fiendish Disney Villains come out in force and the Disney characters dress up in special spooky costumes for exclusive shows and events throughout the month!

Disney's Halloween Festival will see something of a reinvention for 2011 with the old Pumpkinmen creations, which once upon a time remorselessly covered Main Street in orange "paint", tossed out in favour of a more wholesome, quality, Disney style.

Disney's Halloween Festival

Although the first Disney resort to celebrate Halloween in a big way, Disneyland Paris now takes inspiration from its Californian cousin, which with its HalloweenTime events has redefined the season with a more whimsical, cartoony and fun vibe. One that, crucially, seeks to invigorate the existing lands and stories with new seasonal life, rather than quite literally and unscrupulously painting over them.

Expect a brand new event with Mickey, Minnie and friends on the rarely-used Royal Castle Stage, a brand new Central Plaza Stage show with the Disney Villains and all the characters on their best, most mischievous form. Frontierland even becomes home to Jack Skellington and Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas.

For extra after-dark fun, don't miss the three different Halloween parties, including the quite genuinely frightful Terrorific Night events at Walt Disney Studios Park!

Spooktacular fun as Disneyland Park is transformed with the colours of Autumn and the fiendish frights of Disney villains and Hallowe'en characters in disguise!

Decorations & Atmosphere

Disney's Halloween Festival

It's pumpkin fever on Main Street, U.S.A.!

At last freed from the clutches of the listless Pumpkinmen and their orange paint, this year sees the street reawaken to celebrate Hallowe'en in a more traditional small-town America style — except here, the pumpkins have ears!

Expect plenty of bunting and vibrant Autumnal colours lining the buildings and flower beds.
