A Disneyland Halloween

For as long as I can remember going to Disneyland on Halloween has always been on my bucket list. I just figured that taking my favorite holiday and one of my favorite places and smashing them together would be AMAZING and I was totally right!! This trip was an absolute dream come true! 

Tyler and I kinda screwed up and went to disneyland at the beginning of the year and didn't check the website for which rides would be closed. It ended up almost EVERYTHING we truly wanted to ride and do was closed the first time we went. Splash Mountain, World of Color, The Matterhorn, Peter Pan, and the actual castle had a tarp over it! It was kind of a bummer. So we decided to take a second chance and it was a MILLION Times better. Everything was open and decorated perfectly for Halloween. The people at disney blow my mind with how intensely and beautifully they decorated for Halloween. It was so fun!! I loved just walking around and seeing all of the cool Halloween decorations!

We got to ride all the rides we wanted multiple times, saw the parades, firework show and world of color, googled "top ten treats to get at disneyland" and made it our mission to try as many as we could(favorites include: Matterhorn Macaroon, Mint Julep and Mickey Beignets, dalmatian mint ice-cream sundae, and red apple freeze drink), we magically got lucky with a guy handing us his fast passes for a ride he wasn't using, and then another guy we met in line invited us to come with him on tower of terror using his stroller swap (which is totally cool by the way), and much more!! This trip is one I will always remember. Tyler and I literally could not stop smiling and we had a total blast!! 

 (Posing with the strangers behind us ha ha)

 This my friends is a Matterhorn Macaroon the you get at the "Jolly Holliday" on Mainstreet USA. And let me tell you... the rumors are true. This little piece of heaven is DIVINE! If you love thick, gooey, coconuty goodness... then this is the treat for you. And guess what. It's HUGE and it was $1.99 uh #winning.

 Dalmatian mint chocochip sundae from the ice-cream parlor on mainstreet. Tyler and I shared this and it was amazing!

 The castle was completely decked out in Diamonds for the 60th diamond anniversary celebration and it was BEAUTIFUL!! I kinda hope they keep the diamonds on from now on even once the year is over. 

This is a red apple freeze drink from Cars Land. People kept recommending this one to us and yet it was the treat I was the least enthusiastic with. At first it just tastes like regular apple juice and then once you hit certain spots in the drink, Ty and I decided it kinda tasted like a weird apple pie. But hey!! To each their own! On the other hand... I forgot to take a picture of the Mint Julep drink at the Mint Julep Bar in New Orleans Square and THAT was SOOOO good. You would have to like mint though! I would totally recommend that one instead of this one!

  1. Kyle and I can eat our way through Disneyland Park! I love the Mint Julep and the Matterhorn Macaroon as well. Next time you get a Macaroon from the Jolly Holiday Cafe you should totally order the Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup combo. I am NOT a Tomato Soup person... but that soup and sandwich is DIVINE!

    I've never been to Disneyland in October, but it's on my bucket list too. Looks like you guys had a blast, and I loved looking through your photos! :)
