HALLOWEEN TIME AT DISNEYLAND

1313 Disneyland Dr, Anaheim, CA 92802, USA

A few months ago Kevin's sister saw some cheap flights to Mesa. We were so excited because having visitors is fun for us. There happened to be cheap flights to California too, so they decided to go to Los Angeles instead. We ended up getting some flights too, that weren't as cheap, but we did get them with credit card points. We bought a package deal from GetawayToday that included breakfast, parking, Disneyland tickets and the hotel for an awesome deal. The last time I was at Disneyland I was 10 or 11, so I was really excited to see it again and go for the Halloween decorations. I've never been to any of the Disney parks during a holiday, and seeing all the decor for Halloween really makes me want to go for Christmas one year.

We were really worried the park would be complete MADNESS because it was so close to Halloween, but on Friday we hit the jackpot. We bought the MaxPass and it was the best $10 we've ever spent. We walked on every single ride we wanted aside from once or twice that we waited 15 minutes. It was the BEST! 


I had been following @DisneyHungry on Instagram for a few months leading up to this trip, so I had a few treats I really wanted to try. I was able to get the Mummy Macaron from Jolly Holiday bakery in Disneyland, and a Ghirardheli Salted Carmel sundae in California Adventure. I'm pretty sure 1/2 of this trip was just eating delicious food ;). The first day we had reservations for Cafe Orleans because I heard they had the best food. I ordered the Monte Cristo sandwich and some frites with parmesan, and it was sooo good. I highly recommend both, but definitely share it with someone because it is alot of food. 


Fastpast+ Tips: The first thing I would suggest is to have your credit card already saved in your account so that as soon as you enter the park (preferably at opening) you can check out with the Fastpast+ (you can't buy the Fastpast+ until after you have entered the park). Choose the earliest time for a ride that you really want to ride because you are able to get another Fastpass as soon as the one you have becomes available or 1 hour after. As soon as the window opens for your first pass, you are eligible to select another one again. The best perk of this is even if you leave the park for a few hours you are still able to select Fastpasses for later in the evening when you return! Let me know if you have any other tips.
