Details of Mickeys Halloween Treat and the Ticket Luck value
Mickeys Halloween Treat
It is an annual Halloween-themed separate admission event at Disney's California Adventure, part of the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California since 2005. An earlier event with the same name had been held in the late 1990's at Disneyland, and both are and have been considered to be a family-centered response to the scare-centered events.
Guests are encouraged to dress in costumes, including adults and those over the age of nine years of age who are normally prohibited from doing so. However, guests dressed as a Disney Character are not allowed to have their pictures taken with other guests or sign autographs as those are done by cast members.
Events include trick-or-treating with candy and healthier alternatives like carrot slices and red and green apple slices, meet and greet chances with the Princesses from Disney's animated movies, Mickey and Minnie in Halloween costumes and Disney villains plus coloring activities for the younger guests and dance parties.
Fifteen minutes before the end of the event, a cavalcade is held featuring the characters from the Disney character family to put a festive end to the activities.New in 2006, the Disney Resort is hosting a separate-admission evening event for the Halloween season at Disney's California Adventure called Mickey's Halloween Treat. The park will close early to daytime visitors and re-open in the evening. Mickey's Halloween Treat will include trick-or-treating stations and Halloween crafts for little ghouls and goblins. There will also be live music and entertainment for the younger set.Usually costume-wearing at Disneyland Resort is limited to kids 9 years old and under, but for Mickey's Halloween Treat everyone is allowed to dress up.
For several years the only opportunity to experience a Halloween event at the Disneyland Resort has been the cast member-exclusive party known as Little Monsters. After a brief experiment a decade ago at Disneyland, Halloween has returned to Anaheim in the form of Mickey's Halloween Treat at Disney's California Adventure park. Tickets to the event were hard to come by as Annual Pass holders quickly bought them up, selling out dates even before they were open to the general public.
The regular Disney's California Adventure musical loop was replaced by a loop of Halloween's tunes. We heard Heffalumps and Woozles several times throughout the evening, along with other songs such as Grim Grinning Ghosts and some unusual versions of the usual silly monster songs. At the entrance to Bountiful Farms, a troop of Scarecrows engaged guests in improvisational banter, which was my favorite entertainment of the evening. Disney set up the Pacific Wharf tables for crafts including a handheld Mickey-O-Lantern mask, although the long lines for two trick-or-treat stations and the Mickey and Minnie photo opportunity in the area made navigating the area a challenge.
The event guide advertised three official photo opportunity locations throughout the park where you can get your party's photo taken with a character in a formal meet-and-greet setting. On Paradise Pier near the Ariel's Grotto restaurant, various Disney Princesses charmed families who waited to meet them. In the Pacific Wharf area, Zorro Mickey and Nurse Minnie greeted visitors. Finally, the Villains camped out in the Hollywood Back lot. Unfortunately, the event guide failed to communicate that the lines for these opportunities would close well before the end of the event, the cast members had closed the Mickey and Minnie line just before 10 p.m.
Unlike Walt Disney World's Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, guests do not receive a complimentary photo with their admission to Mickey's Halloween Treat. Guests may use their own cameras at the photo opportunities and/or purchase photos from Disney. Shopping and DiningMany stores are open but none offered special event merchandise, including pins, which seems highly unusual for a special event. The only event logged item we saw were the bright purple sweatshirts cast members not in costume wore, but these were their work uniforms and were not available for purchase. Few outdoor vending carts came out for the evening, but Pizza Oo Mow Mow, Burger Invasion, Award Wieners and the Taste Pilot's Grill were open.
