    "HalloweenTime" and "HMH" are back beginning 9/21/07

    13 July 2007

    A FAMILY-FRIENDLY HALLOWEEN TRADITION RETURNS AS
    DISNEY’S HALLOWEENTIME BRINGS
    TRICKS & TREATS BACK TO DISNEYLAND RESORT!

    Halloween Dreams Come True Beginning Sept. 21
    When Parks and Characters Are Transformed
    For the Autumn Holiday Season

    ANAHEIM, Calif. (July 13, 2007) Following up on the success of its inaugural season last year, Disney’s HalloweenTime will return to the Disneyland Resort this fall with a lively mix of Disney characters in seasonal costumes, whimsical décor, decked-out attractions, themed shows and tasty treats designed with the whole family in mind. This inviting interactive Halloween experience at Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure will begin a week earlier this year starting Friday, Sept. 21, and continuing through Wednesday, Oct. 31. HalloweenTime at the Resort is part of the Year of a Million Dreams celebration at Disney Parks.

    All new this Halloween season, the Sunshine Plaza in California Adventure will become the site of “Candy Corn Acres,” where Mickey Mouse’s pal Goofy will set out to grow the West’s biggest and most unusual candy corn: candy corn coconuts, candy corn carrots and candy corn pumpkins, among other delicious produce offerings. The Plaza will be overgrown with the “fruits” of Goofy’s labor.

    Also expanded will be Mickey’s HalloweenTreat, a separate-ticket nighttime event which gives kids and their families the opportunity to dress in their Halloween costumes and trick-or-treat throughout Disney’s California Adventure after it has closed to day guests. This year’s HalloweenTreat will offer tricksters of all ages more treat locations along with fun character encounters (including an all-new nightly cavalcade), interactive games, and spirited music with DJ Mickey. Older kids and parents will want to experience the heart-dropping Twilight Zone Tower of Terror® and meet the hotel’s ghostly staff members who materialize only during the Halloween season.

    This year, additional nights have been scheduled for Mickey’s HalloweenTreat: Thursdays and Fridays beginning October 4 plus Monday-Wednesday, October 29-31. Tickets go on sale August 1.

    During regular park hours at Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure, Disney’s HalloweenTime will offer parents and children lots of not-so-scary fun in addition to the parks’ many popular Year of a Million Dreams adventures. HalloweenTime experiences will include special Halloween shows, meet-and-greets with Disneyland characters in their Halloween costumes and spooky-silly holiday themed decorations which guests begin to spot as soon as they reach the entrances to the parks.
    Jack-o’-lantern creations resembling Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Pluto and Goofy will adorn the top of the Main Entrance to Disneyland park. Across the Esplanade, at the entrance to Disney’s California Adventure park, guests will see the iconic 11-foot-tall CALIFORNIA letters transformed into giant pieces of candy corn.

    Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland will once again be decked out for the Main Street Pumpkin Festival. Guests will be greeted there by Miss Cobbler, Queen of the Pumpkin Festival, and Constable Jackie O’Leary. More than 300 jack-o’-lanterns will peek out of shop windows, while festive orange and yellow bunting will grace the quaint Victorian buildings. The whimsical 12-foot tall Mickey Mouse jack-o’-lantern, complete with pumpkin ears, will return to highlight Town Square, smiling at guests as they enter Main Street and giving them a playful wink when they depart.

    The Central Plaza of Disneyland, near Sleeping Beauty Castle, will also be specially decorated with Disney character-inspired jack-o’-lanterns surrounding the famous “Partners” statue of Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse. Additionally, the Disney characters themselves will get into the “spirit” of the occasion, wearing their favorite Halloween costumes, while meeting and greeting guests.

    “Woody’s Halloween Roundup” once again will take over Big Thunder Ranch in Frontierland. The Roundup fun will include a visit with the animals in the “Petting Boo,” crafts and musical activities including a Halloween Hoedown and a spooky interactive sing-along version of “Old McDonald Had a Farm” featuring black cats, ghosts and werewolves. Woody, Jessie and Bullseye from the Disney•Pixar Toy Story movies will appear throughout the day on stage in comic adventure tales hosted by a guitar playing, storytelling cowboy. The Roundup will also feature an array of tasty treats to satisfy the most monstrous of appetites, including cotton candy in Halloween colors and Creepy Cookie Critters that guests create themselves.

    Returning to Disney’s California Adventure will be the spooky Hollywood Tower Hotel staff members who haunt the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror during the Halloween season, and “Golden Screams,” where Disney villains roll out the black carpet for an awards ceremony – “Best Scream,” “Best Act of Villainy” – held daily inside the Golden Dreams Theatre.

    Favorite Disney villains, including Cruella De Vil from 101 Dalmatians, the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland, Captain Hook from Peter Pan and others, will roam both Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure for HalloweenTime meet-and-greets with park guests.

    Throughout the Disneyland Resort during Disney’s HalloweenTime, families can enjoy unique Halloween-themed food items including Zero’s Ghostly Ghoulash, a favorite of Jack Skellington’s pet in “Haunted Mansion Holiday,” and merchandise including Disney costumes, collectible pins and coins, and a special set of Halloween-themed Mickey Mouse ears resembling a Mickey jack-o’-lantern.

    And no Halloween celebration at Disneyland would be complete without the return of Jack Skellington and his friends to transform the Haunted Mansion in New Orleans Square into the popular seasonal “Haunted Mansion Holiday.” Inspired by the innovative animated film Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas, “Haunted Mansion Holiday” depicts the holiday mayhem that occurs when Halloween and Christmas traditions collide.

    Disney’s HalloweenTime will be presented throughout the Disneyland Resort from Sept. 21 – Oct. 31, 2007 as part of the Year of a Million Dreams celebration at the Resort.

    Sounds like the same ol' HMH too...I'm starting to think we're never going to see significant changes on it again (and a new "moving" picture dosn't count).

    i'm glad they are bringing back the Halloween Time. Our family has been saying for years that they need to add halloween to Disneyland. Last year we had a blast going to Disneyland and the Halloween Treat.

    Looking forward to it again this year!!

    I can't wait for Holiday time at the park!

    But I don't get this:
    Disney’s HalloweenTime will be presented throughout the Disneyland Resort from Sept. 21 – Oct. 31, 2007 as part of the Year of a Million Dreams celebration at the Resort.
    What makes their HalloweenTime a part of YOAMD nonsense? The plans look the same as last year (Not the Year of a Million Dreams - NYOAMD)

    I'm looking forward to all this. I did not buy my AP until November last year so this will all be new to me. Well, not all ... I have been on HMH before but the decorations and stuff I've never seen.

    I would guess that Small World Holiday isnt posted in the Halloween release and will be released in the Christmas one later in the year
