fall favorites at DisneyLand [giveaway!]

Congrats to winner Sarah Chaney!

We are so stoked to have another post sponsored by Park Savers (the best and only way to get discount Disneyland tickets.) And top it all off we have Julie and Emily here from Magic Kingdom Mamas which is an awesome Instagram you have to follow if you’re ever visiting the park! Today they’re sharing with us all the ways that Disney changes in the Fall and read to the bottom to find out how to win two free tickets to Disneyland from Park Savers!

Hi! We are Julie and Emily, the sisters (and mamas) behind Magic Kingdom Mamas. Using our Instagram account (@magic_kingdom_mamas), we share helpful daily tips and hidden gems for a fun-filled, stress-free visit with kids to Disneyland Resort in Anaheim. Fall Favorites at Disneyland The changing of the seasons at Disneyland is always a magical time, and “Halloween Time” is no different! This family-friendly, 6-week long celebration of all things “fall” is one of our favorite times of year to spend in the park. In addition to a total resort facelift (complete with more pumpkins that one could count), Disney also introduces new Halloween-themed attractions/shows, seasonal merchandise, and even fall foods! Fall Favorites at DisneylandPumpkin Beignets, Pastry Twists, Chile Lime Corn on the Cob, Boysen-Apple Freeze, Dia de Los Muertos dipped apples…these are just a few of our favorite fall things! For a complete list of “Halloween Time” seasonal treats added throughout the parks, check out this post on the Disney Parks Blog. If you’re like us, you’ll treat it like a checklist of sorts and work your way through as the season rolls along…YUM! http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2015/09/complete-guide-to-eats-during-halloween-time-at-disneyland-resort/Fall Favorites at DisneylandIn addition to seasonal eats, various attractions have been “updated” for Halloween Time. Most notably, the ever-popular “Nightmare Before Christmas” has again invaded the Haunted Mansion! The long lines and enthusiastic park guests are evidence of its popularity. We actually think the “Haunted Mansion Holiday” version of the ride is much less frightening for kiddos – but as with any ride, we always say, “you know your kids” – meaning what they can/cannot handle. That said, we’ve seen all ages enter & exit this attraction with smiles on their faces! Additionally, “Space Mountain: Ghost Galaxy” has also hit the parks. Space Mountain itself is a thrilling, fast-paced roller coaster…but the Ghost Galaxy overlay adds an extra layer of terror that is totally scary and totally not for the faint of heart…haha! Again, you know your kids…but we think this ride is pretty terrifying! Use discretion with your young ones. Thrill-seekers must be 40” tall to ride.

Lastly, “Mickey’s Halloween Party” is a separately-ticketed event that occurs on evenings when the park closes early (typically beginning at 6 or 7pm). This is SO much fun! Attendees are invited to show up in full, family-friendly costumes, meet characters that are not usually in the parks, dance along to fun music, enjoy open rides & attractions, trick-or-treat, & experience the special “Halloween Screams” fireworks show. The tickets can be a bit pricey (start at $70 – ticket includes parking), but Disney truly pulls out ALL of the stops for this extra special experience. Added bonus, a ticketed event means that the park is much less crowded than it usually would be – meaning more fun (and CANDY) for all! OH by the way, we’ve heard rumor that Peeps (yes, the neon marshmallow miracles) have been added as official event sponsors this year, so…you’re welcome! More info can be found and tickets purchased here: https://disneyland.disney.go.com/events-tours/mickeys-halloween-party/

There is SO much more that we could share, as the close of each year at the Happiest Place on Earth is just such a blast! Lots of fun events and changes are in store between now and the end of 2015! That said, be sure to follow us on Instagram as we guide you through Disneyland’s exciting updates and continue to offer our most helpful day-to-day tips (like where to nurse your baby, how to beat the heat, save time, save money, save your sanity, etc.)!

    I love these magic kingdom mamas !
    I have a 9 month old son and we first took him at 5 months. Everyone kept saying he’s too young and its going to be hard. I wish they were there to see how excited he was to be there and he had so much fun he did not cry at all ! we just went in September for the Halloween season and its amazing! he got to see jack and sally and was so happy because he recognized them from some of our house decor !
