I can see them now! Yay!
Disneyland is a fun place to visit during HalloweenTime. While only a portion of the parks are decorated, it's still fun to check out the decorations.
Pumpkin Mickey, Goofy, Donald, Minnie, and Pluto greeted guests over the main ticket gates.
Signs in the Esplande facing Disneyland.
Signs in the Esplande facing DCA.
Mickey and Donald were goofying around as they headed to their M&G locations around Town Square.
Lots of crows in Uptown Jewelry.
Pumpkins near Westward Ho Trading Co.
The Halloween Tree was all lit up.
The Toontown sign had purple and orange bunting and a Mickey and Minnie pumpkin on each side.
Toontown only had a small amount of Halloween decorations.
Dia de los Muertos
The Dia de los m Muertos exhibit returned to Frontierland, near Rancho del Zocalo.
The Oogie Boogie sign over the entrance to DCA looks great at night!
The Headless Horseman statue at the end of Buena Vista Street looked great at night. They've added sound and fog effects, which added to the mood.
Carthay Circle looked great at night!
Carthay Circle in the day!
The bat signs were out along the walkways.
The Grizzly River Rapid bear had a trick or treat pumpkin bucket!
Carsland was all decorated for HalloweenTime again this year! Scary Car was waiting to greet guests at the Carsland sign. This year they had a plush of the Scary Car, along with a ornament. There was also an ornament of the Dia de los Muertos car.
The graveyard near Mater's was back featuring ominous warnings to travelers. These look better at night, but they're also much harder to read because of the low lighting.
Posters for four Halloween Themed movies were on the garage wall across from Sarge's.
Sarge's pump-can patch was back, along with the giant oil-can spider.
Spooky decor along Route 66.
Mater's Junkyard Jamboree sign and Sarge's tree were decorated with purple lights.
Cute signs and decor in and around Radiator Springs Curios.
The spooky car is again wrapped around the tree...make sure to watch it for a few minutes to see the spooky lights and hear the ominous/ghostly rumblings...
Luigi's tire tower is back, along with the Horn of Plenty! Inside there were pumpkin tires (which ties in nicely to the pumpkin tire straw they're offering at the CS location in Carsland).
Flo's is decorated with spider webs and the spider car is out front.
Ramone's House of Body Art has a Dia de los Muertos car outside and an ofrenda for Doc Hudson inside.
Lightning McQueen and Mater were all dressed up for Halloween.
Even the Cozy Cones were decorated for Halloween!
Stanley had his witch's hat and the Courthouse had eyes!
Plaza de la Familia
The Paradise Gardens Park area of DCA was once again transformed into the Plaza de la Familia, celebrating Coco! There was specialty food items, arts & crafts, the World of Coco exhibit, and a musical show. Inside the gazebo (where they used to have character M&Gs), was a display with art from Coco and some recreations of Santa Cecilia.
Dante was outside, in a display of yellow flowers.
Inside were several groups of art and props. Each had several pictures, plus information about the story of Coco.
The banners hanging across the ceiling had several different images of the characters from Coco.
In the center was a display honoring Ernesto de la Cruz. The old TV played clips from his movies.
Another display, this one focusing on the the Land of the Dead.
Disneyland always releases several souvie type items for HalloweenTime...popcorn buckets, travel mugs, straw clips, glow cubes, etc.
Poison Apple Cauldron - This year's big new premium popcorn bucket was the Poison Apple Cauldron ($20)! The lid lights up and there is even a Hidden Mickey on the top!
Oogie Boogie - The second premium bucket this year featured Oogie Boogie ($18). It's very similiar to last year's design, but the base and strap are much more colorful and Oogie is a brighter green color.
Round Popcorn Bucket - This year, there were two HalloweenTime round popcorn buckets! One for each park. The DL one looks like the travel mug and features Mickey and friends in Halloween costumes. The DCA one has Oogie Boogie and the Headless Horseman.
Purple Poison Apple Glow Cube - This was a Carthay Circle Restaurant and Lounge exclusive this year. It comes with the Poison Apple-tini ($17).
Green Poison Apple Glow Cube -Last year, this was the exclusive glow cube at Carthay Circle, but this year it is readily available throughout the resort ($5). I did not see the red poison apple glow cube this year.
Green Poison Apple Stein - Another new items for this year, the green poison apple stein looks like the red one, but is green (prices vary, ~$14-$16).
Headless Horseman Straw Clip - Another items that was available last year (not at the start of the season) was the Headless Horseman Straw Clip ($6). Both the horse's eyes and the pumpkin's face light up.
Pumpkin Tire Straw - This was also available last year (not at the start of the season), and is again available in Carsland ($6).
Travel Mug - This year's travel mug features Mickey and friends in cute Halloween costumes ($7.50). It's available at most CS locations throughout both parks.
Haunted Mansion Holiday, 2018
Every year at HalloweenTime, the Haunted Mansion is transformed into the Haunted Mansion Holiday. Jack Skellington and his friends re-decorate the Mansion and move in for a bit. Overall, the 2018 version of Haunted Mansion Holiday looked pretty similiar to the previous versions, with only a few small changes (aside from the Gingerbread house).

The Endless Hallway
(I had never noticed that one of the packages just before you reach the endless hallway has dog bones for Zero. It's hard to see, but we spotted it one time when we got stopped there for a bit.)
The Gingerbread House - This year's house featured a giant spider suspended above the house.
The Monkey Bride
The Hatbox Ghost
