It’s Halloween time at the Disneyland Resort, and the Downtown Disney District is a boiling cauldron of exciting seasonal things, places to see, shopping to explore, and delights to discover. Don’t leave any bones, you will want to take the time to accompany us throughout the autumn.
Novelty Pursuit of Pluto Pumpkin
Join our new pumpkin hunt in the downtown Disney district! First, buy a game board and stickers at certain Disney merchandise locations, including World of Disney, and look for 13 different hidden pumpkins in the district, each inspired by a different Disney character. Then place the appropriate stickers on the game board. Whether players choose to hunt pumpkins or not, they can return their game board to a place of redemption at World of Disney or Disney’s Pin Trader to have a creepy surprise. *
Along with the pursuit of Pluto’s pumpkin, our horticulture and complex improvement teams have been filling the planters with more than 1,100 whimsically painted pumpkins, 2,000 real pumpkins and 300 pumpkins.
Immerse your eyes in …
Celebrate your favorite fall flavors and enjoy tasty sweets with pumpkin spices, savory dishes and spooky cocktails throughout the downtown Disney district.
