Hi, we’re David + Drexelle and we’re Disneyholics. We confess. We’ve been passholders since 2004 when David worked there in college as a cast member. It’s worse now though because, in fact, we’re premium passholders. We love Disney. Period.
Despite the years of having had annual passes, we had NEVER checked out the Halloween Trick-or-Treat events at Disneyland. 2010, we said, would be different. Besides, we honestly needed a good break during this busy wedding season to spend an evening…not working.
*ahem* Please excuse my [Drexelle] lame costume. There was a thunderstorm that night and, while it was great to have the park that much less crowded, gave no incentive to go all out in the costume department…at least for this year.
So how is Disneyland around Halloween?
Well, there’s fog that surrounds Adventureland and vibrant colors and smokes throughout the park:
Creative Halloween GOBOs all throughout the park
Costumed heroes, princesses, and villains! It’s the only time Disneyland will let adults come dressed in costumes at the park.
Not to mention the MOST creative ways to move kids around the park. CHECK OUT the pirate ship stroller! How rad is that. We must confess we were jealous.
AND THE BEST PART – tons and tons of candy stations with the good kinds of candy, including fruit leather, Ghirardelli, and even healthy alternatives like Apple Crisps, apple slices, carrots and raisins.
guess how much candy we collected
We made it our personal mission to get a ridiculous amount of candy. We filled a double-seated stroller with over 40 lbs of candy. 40 LBS! …Now we…just have to figure out what to do with all of it.

We’re officially going to be on a sugar high ’til November after this.
