My favorite things at Mickey’s Trick-or-Treat Party…
Dressing up! Most everyone attending Mickey’s Trick-or-Treat Party was dressed up in costume and ready for Halloween – that means adults and children! It makes for a great reason to yet again wear that costume that you either spent a bunch of time creating or a bunch of money buying for Halloween!
The Treats! Yes they have trick or treating stations through out the park, but of course, right?! Here’s how it works….your strolling along when all of a sudden a line is forming…sometimes they are loooong and other times they are short and when you get to the front, there’s people passing out a handful of candy as trick-or-treaters hold out their bags or pails.
(NOTE: Disney did offer a plastic bag for you to put your loot into when you enter the park or you can bring your own. My kids got these awesome Mickey pumpkins to hold their candy, thanks to the great folks at Disneyland! And you betcha those things made it all the way back home with us in California. I took them on the plane with me as part of my carry on :))
The RIDES! We had been to California Adventure before (earlier that week, actually)but we didn’t get to ride a lot of the rides because we were short on time. But when we returned for Mickey’s Trick-or-Treat Party, we were able to go on the rides with little to no lines. It was awesome and really made the experience all that much better – actually I think that was the icing on the cake.
Meeting the Disney Characters!! As we were meandering around the park, which is all dressed up for Halloween with huge Mickey ghosts lining the walkways and a garden full of candy corn, we happened upon some of Cameron’s favorite characters, like The Incredibles….which were getting a groove on at a Dance Party with the kids. It was sooo cool, the characters are right there dancing with you!
We then met Handy Manny, saw some of the Seven Dwarfs and the ultimate…WE TOOK A PICTURE WITH LIGHTENING MCQUEEN AND TOWMATER!! I’ll be honest I was equally (if not more) excited as Cam…Lightening is rock start status in our house…it was pretty great to see him in the flesh, I mean, in the metal.
The only bad thing I can say about the experience was the parking. While Disney has it down almost to a science, it’s still a pain to have to stand in line, fold up your stroller with kids in tow, and try and cram it all on to a tram. But, I have no idea how they could do it better other than to use some pixie dust to magically transport us, so until then, I’d say they have it pretty figured out!
Hands down we LOVED Mickey’s Trick-or-Treat Party! You have a week left…try to go and check it out! I’d say it’s totally worth it!
