Disneyland doesn’t seem to advertise much for Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy. Maybe they just know that once you’re in the Park and night falls, you’re going to find out about it one way or another. Chances are, that way will be by seeing and hearing the stunning effects that take place on the iconic, out of this world mountain. One thing is for certain – there are definitely “ghosts” in space.
Autumn is finally here. That means it’s time for cooler weather and for pumpkin anything to take over. Enjoy these hazy harvest days whilst you can, because before you know it, winter will be here. At least that’s what my local Target has led me to believe with their Christmas displays.
Halloween can sometimes be thought of as a diabolical holiday filled with evil spirits and gruesome characters, but not at Disneyland. During Halloween Time, there is a sense of wacky spirit and goulish fun throughout the park. It’s surprising to see such a holiday turned into a great time for families and young children. There are only few days left to experience the wonder of Halloween Time at Disneyland.
I love those moments when you see something new or something familiar in a new way. Finding the Hollywood Tower Hotel through the trees on Main Street was one of those moments and the Halloween Time decor the icing on the cake. When you think of Disneyland and Main Street, the Tower of Terror is definitely not the next logical step. For me that’s what makes it. This idea isn’t typical and challenges us to see something differently and allows me to share one of my “aha!” moments with you.
The reds, oranges and yellows of the Halloween Time decorations at Disneyland fit right in on Main Street. At night they glow vibrantly beneath the many lights and lamps adorning everyone’s home town. The giant Mickey pumpkin is definitely the grandest of the decorations and it’s painfully obvious when trying to wait for the crowds to thin out to get a picture. From Park open to close couples and children, families and friends wait to have their pictures taken in front of either side of the gargantuan gourd. But if you wait long enough, you can capture quiet moments like this as security makes their final sweep down Main Street to bid you a good night.
Halloween has arrived at Disneyland and in typical Disney fashion, they have decorated this year to “plus it” from last. We have a lot of fun things in store to share with you. Some things haven’t changed, like this marvelous Mickey pumpkin standing near the beginning of Main Street. It leaves no doubt that Autumn is nearly here and Disneyland is ready for it. The crisp cool air and the soft hazy light of a Fall morning were present for our trip today and oh so welcome. We hope you’re as excited as we are!
