Race To Disneyland Haul-O-Ween in Cars Land | Disneyland Halloween

I’ve got Cars on the mind after a trip last year to Disneyland, where Cars Land was transformed for Haul-O-Ween for the first time.

Because Disneyland is my favorite place ever, I am over the moon excited about the recent changes to the parks.

Whaaaat? Shenanigans, you surprise us with this new information!

Yeah, I know; the fact that Disneyland is my favorite is not exactly news. What you may not know, however, is that I have a preferred time of year to visit.

I’ve long held that Halloween at Disneyland is the ultimate time to go.

The big pumpkin decorations, Space Mountain: Ghost Galaxy, Haunted Mansion Holiday, and Mickey’s Halloween Party have always made it a special time to visit.

When the powers that be decided to extend Halloween to Disney California Adventure and Cars Land, I just knew I needed to see it!

As part of a media event, I got that chance. Disneyland hosted 25 bloggers for the night to explore all the new offerings last fall. And I’m so excited that Haul-O-Ween is coming back for Disneyland Halloween 2018!

Disney California Adventure Halloween

We spent most of the time in DCA since it was decorated and update for Halloween for the very first time. And awesome news announced: it’s all coming back for Disneyland Halloween 2018!

From the entrance to the park, where Oogie Boogie greets you, to the attractions with unique Halloween overlays, Disney California Adventure’s decorations team scared up a win.

It felt a little more spooky than the Disneyland side, and I loved it.

I was stupidly excited for this photo op with the Headless Horseman.

The colors used around the park were deep purples and bright orange, which gave such a cool creepy vibe.

The sunset got in on the act as well!

Lots of bats were used as accents around the park.

I was digging it!

I even caught a flock of bats flying out of the Carthy Circle.

Okay, so they were just birds, but it was so well timed it *could* have been bats and at Disneyland, I wouldn’t put it past them to plus the magic that way!

Cars Land Haul-O-Ween

For us Halloween lovers, Cars Land was the place to be!

Or Haul-O-Ween, if you will. Radiator Screams is a ton of fun for your whole Halloween at Disneyland loving family!

Not only does the entire land transform for the season, but two Cars Land attractions will as well.

Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters became Luigi’s Honkin’ Haul-O-Ween. 

We rode this one just after the sun went down and I giggled through the entire dance.

 

 

Halloween songs in Italian just struck me as funny.

Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree became Mater’s Graveyard JamBOOree. 

Since Mater is one of my boys, I knew I’d have a great time spinning around this one. And (spoiler alert) I totally did.

The festivities continued throughout the shops as well.

With a nod to Ramone’s heritage and Disney Pixar’s COCO, the Day of the Dead, marigolds and a sugar car (named Sugar) decorated the outside of Ramone’s House of Body Art.

There was quite the line to get a picture with Sugar, and I’m sure she appreciates the attention.

Disney California Adventure Halloween Food

Our crew made a pit stop at Flo’s V8 Cafe for dinner.

Being the group we were (i.e., bloggers) we bought all the Instagram-worthy specialty foods we found.

Mini Candy Cone Pie and the Car-achnid Pot Pie were two big hits with our group.

Cars Meet and Greet In Radiator Screams

The Cars characters also donned their “car-stumes” and greeted guests at the Cozy Cone.

We managed to catch Mater (dressed as a van-pire) and Mater driving by (dressed as a superhero). Cruz Ramirez is in town this year and I can’t wait to see what she dresses up as!

I love it when Disney puts those special touches on their already fantastic themed lands. Cars Land Haul-O-Ween ranks right up there as an immersive experience for me as Haunted Mansion Holiday.

So well done!

CARS LAND HAUL-O-WEEN (ANAHEIM, Calif.) – Everyone’s favorite Cars characters will transform Radiator Springs into their own Haul-O-Ween celebration during Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort, Sept. 7-Oct. 31, 2018. The Cars characters will be donning their Halloween “car-stumes” as they greet guests and prepare to go “trunk-or-treating.” Mater will be wearing his vampire or “van-pire” outfit, while Lightning McQueen is dressed as a superhero. Cruz Ramirez, Red the Fire Truck and DJ will get dressed up as a pirate, a clown and a punk rocker, respectively. (Joshua Sudock/Disneyland Resort)

 

Guardians of the Galaxy – Monsters After Dark

The details put into Disney California Adventure for Halloween are just too much fun! While most of the Halloween experience was featured in Cars Land, I can’t skip over this great addition.

The new Guardians of the Galaxy attraction also received an overlay of sorts for the season.

While I didn’t ride it last year, I’m going to see if I can brave up and ride it this year!

My friends raved about the ride, which features an all-new 1970s-style punk rock song, “Monsters After Dark,” written by Tyler Bates, the composter for Guardians of the Galaxy films.

 

Guardians of the Galaxy at Disneyland has a Halloween overlay!Race To Disneyland Haul-O-Ween in Cars Land! Disney California Adventure is spooky fun! Cars Land tips for people looking to spend Halloween Time at the park.

 

From Disney:

As the sun sets, the attraction’s exterior goes dark and then suddenly powers back up with lighting effects, a signal that something has gone awry. The Guardians have successfully escaped The Collector’s Fortress, but have accidentally left Groot behind. Guests will help Rocket distract the creatures that have been released so he can find and rescue Groot in this exciting seasonal overlay.

I took a peek into the Lobby where alarms were blaring, warning guests that creatures have escaped at the Collector’s Fortress. If you know me, you know I got the heck out of there before a monster came calling or someone put me on an elevator!

Super creepy set up which leads to an awesomely crazy ride.

 

Disney MaxPass

If riding either version of Guardians of the Galaxy (Mission Breakout OR Monsters After Dark) is your plan while visiting Disneyland, be sure to take advantage of Disney MaxPass.

This is the new digital tool that allows you to utilize unlimited PhotoPass and schedule your FASTPASS experiences through the Disneyland App.

For a small daily fee of $10, you can maximize your time by planning for attractions. And trust me, saving time at Disneyland is so worth the $10.

Bonus, in my opinion, is the chance to grab some fun photos, like this one!

 

Disney MaxPass gives you free PhotoPass pics, like this one!Race To Disneyland Haul-O-Ween in Cars Land! Disney California Adventure is spooky fun! Cars Land tips for people looking to spend Halloween Time at the park.

 

My friend Leslie at Trips with Tykes has an excellent write-up for Disney MaxPass use.

CARS 3 on Blu-ray

I sure hope the additions for Halloween become a long-standing tradition at Disney California Adventure. This was too much fun!

It also got us in the mood to watch CARS 3 on Blu-ray.

 

Cars 3 out on Bluray Nov 7. Race To Disneyland Haul-O-Ween in Cars Land. Disney California Adventure is spooky fun! Cars Land tips for people looking to spend Halloween Time at the park.

 

My youngest wants to have a whole CARS 3 Blu-ray watching party with all the friends from the neighborhood.

I’m not sure my little house (or my patience, just keeping it real here!) can handle too many kids, but I figure a few friends over for popcorn, and a movie might be a fun way to experience CARS 3.

Head over and check out my KA-CHOW! CARS 3 Party Popcorn recipe plus a few others from the #ThorRagnarokEvent bloggers!

If you CAN handle all the fun of an all-out at home CARS 3 party, check out Britni’s post at Play, Party, Plan. She went above and beyond my talents at party planning: you don’t want to miss her post!
