With Disneyland Resort’s Diamond Celebration the Halloween season runs through Nov. 1, 2015 with festive Fall decorations throughout the park, plus spooky transformations of Haunted Mansion and Space Mountain. Stay late to see the parades, fireworks or buy a ticket to trick-or-treat.

Here are 10 must see and do experiences during October at Disneyland:

  1. Main Street Disneyland has been transformed with more than 300 pumpkins and a 16-foot-tall Mickey Jack-o’-lantern.
  2. Ride the Haunted Mansion in New Orleans Square to experience a collision between Halloween and Christmas with Jack Skellington from the Walt Disney Pictures classic “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.” See the recently rejoined Hatbox Ghost.
