Due to the 25th anniversary of the park, Halloween decorations on Main Street USA were transferred to Frontierland. As a result, aside from some castle area decor, only Frontierland is decorated for Halloween this year.
We are on Main Street USA, it’s time for the Mickey Halloween tricycle Gang! You might be saying to yourself, “Is this a joke?” Well no, it isn’t a joke, it’s a 12 cycle parade that lasts about 3 minutes.
We continue. Frontierland receives a share of the old decorations from Main Street USA. The characters look out of place in their Main Street attire and the look of these figures clashes with the actual Frontierland decorations.
The real novelty this year is the arrival of Coco Dia De Los Muertos decorations inspired by the upcoming Disney Pixar film. And that seems to be the reason for this minimalist Halloween this year. Indeed, these new decoration are neat, a real success, but it has consumed a large portion of the Halloween budget. Moreover, the Walt Disney Company decided that Disenyland Paris wasn’t allowed to actually mention Coco. So, the animations devoted to the Coco franchise had to be cancelled. This is how an ambitious park offers a failed season, while the American parks can display the image of the future film “Coco,” but don’t put the same amount of effort into it as Disneyland Paris.

Unfortunately, the ban on communicating and exploiting the Coco franchise has also led the park to produce a subpar parade called Goofy’s Skeletoons Street Party.
This year’s Halloween season is a real mess, an umpteenth season of transition. It is obvious that a return of the Halloween parade (Mickey’s Halloween Celebration created in 2014) this year would have been the best choice. The reliance on the 25th Anniversary entertainment and decor is not enough to fill the lack of Halloween activities this season. It’s a shame too. Disneyland Paris once did a fantastic job with Halloween. Let’s hope they are already working on making it up to us next year!
