I didn’t get to experience dressing up nor trick or treating when I was a kid, as the season wasn’t popular yet but I did accompanied my then little siblings and cousins to a couple of Halloween events. Realized when I was already a mom how it finally gave me an excuse to dress up as well as Coco and I do our twinning Halloween. If you’ve followed me through the years, you’d notice how I take such great effort in preparing and dressing up Coco for Halloween. It has been our favorite holiday. What more if you add Disney and Halloween together, it will be nothing but spectacular!
It is our first Disney Halloween experience and I’m so glad that we were here during the opening day last September 16, 2022. It was an amazing Halloween bash and I would like to share with you what to look forward to at this year’s Hong Kong Disneyland Halloween Celebration:
You’d know it is definitely Halloween when the famous Mickey landscape at the entrance area becomes a semi-pumpkin patch, plus pumpkins of all sizes has taken over the park – from a huge Mickey head pumpkin at the rotunda in Main Street, Halloween pumpkins that glows at night into your favorite Disney characters, to dressing up the lamp posts. It’s Halloween!
Disney Villains Meet and Greet
Disney Villains are out and about because it is Halloween. This is the only time that they are reigning the park with their presence and their feisty attitude. You’d meet Captain Hook, the Big Bad Wolf, the Queen of Hearts and a lot more at the Halloween Time Festival Garden area in Fantasy Land. While Maleficent, Cruella de Ville, and the Evil Queen around Adventureland. The Tremaine Family aka Cinderella’s Step-mother and her ugly and evil stepsisters around the side of the castle towards Tomorrowland. It was evilish yet fun to see them once in a while.
The Disney Villains merch dominates all the stores around Disneyland during the Halloween season. T-shirts, bags, toys, pens, headbands, etc etc. Who wouldn’t love Jack Skellington from the Night Before Christmas dolls too!
“Let’s Get Wicked!”
For the meantime, the Theater in the Wild’s Lion King would rest as they showcase our favorite Disney Villains in their own musical. Ursula, Maleficent, Rapunzel’s Mom, and Gaston would remind us how they tried to take over the lives of our Princesses in their most evil ways in a SPOOKtacular number that would leave us in awe.
Mickey’s Halloween Time Street Party
Mickey brings out the whole crew to a fun street party from Main Street to the right of the castle all the way to Mickey Wondrous Book Area. Mickey, Minnie and Goofy are in their pumpkin float as their friends dance through the crowd. Don’t forget to say Hi! to Duffy and Friends, Vamperina and Sofia the First too!
Halloween Food and Drinks
Some restaurants would have a special Halloween menu for the park goers to complete their Halloween experience. There is even a drink that resembles blood in a IV Pouch. Popcorn containers even change to Mummy Mickey and Light up Zero.
It’s around the Adventureland area where Disney Halloween Music are played throughout. It would also seem like a huge street party as park goes jive to the music while the host hype everyone before the Wicked Fun Party Zone with Cruella de Ville show begins
Wicked Fun Party Zone Cruella de Ville
As you walk towards Adventureland, you will see a Maleficent and Cruella de Ville installations where meet and greets happen. Don’t be confused with the disguise, Cruella de Ville has its own main show before her meet and greet begins. It was quite popular among the park goers as they would really come once the pre-show begins and would stay till the end of the show. Cruella definitely took the spotlight!
Halloween Bags and Crowns
Halloween bags and crowns were given away to everyone at the Fantasyland garden area. Of course, it would be Mickey and Minnie pumpkin versions that kids loved a lot.
Disney Trick or Treat
Who would have thought that one would be able to do trick or treating at Disney? Trick or Treat stations are scattered around the part and would give kids and kids-at-heart a like a generous amout of Disney gummies and mallows to enjoy.
Bonus: As the Disney Villains took over Hong Kong Disneyland this Halloween season, guests can purchase the “Double the Fun” Special offer to visit the park TWICE. It means they get to enter once during the Halloween season until October 31, 2022 and enter the part again during the Christmas season which starts mid-November.
