On Halloween, characters hide in the rides

by Heather Asquith
(Portland, Oregon)


Before California Adventures was built they used to have a Halloween Party at Disneyland. I went a few times when I was a little kid. It was a lot of fun. They had the trick-or-treating like they will this year, cookie decorating like they do at Christmas, and hot chocolate in fun Halloween-themed glow-in-the-dark collector cups! I still have a few!!

But one of the things I remember the most from those parties is that they used to have Disney characters hiding in some rides, and if you said "Trick or Treat" they would pop out and spook you. For example in the Pirates of Caribbean, there is a dark walkway to the left of the boats where a pirate would hide and randomly pop out and scare people. Also, there were cast members hidden in the Haunted Mansion that would only come out if you said "Trick or Treat".

I don't know if they will be doing that this year but don't be surprised if you see a few characters coming out to surprise you in the rides!! =]

Captain for the Day

by Robert Godair
(Katy, Texas)

When in line for Mark Twain River Boat ride, be the first person to ask the staff member on the very top floor to steer the ship. If you are the first family to ask on that voyage, not only do you get to steer it, but you get VIP treatment by entering the cabin as guests to a private staircase. Your family gets a certificate as a keepsake of the "Magical Cruise."

The Princess Faire is Worth the Wait

by A
(Chico, CA)

If you want to meet princesses, I recommend the Princess Faire over Ariel's Grotto.

At the Faire, the princesses spend the time with you and you don't have to pay outrageous prices for mediocre food. At Ariel's Grotto, my daughter got a maximum of 20 seconds with each princess-- just long enough to have a picture taken, and that was it. For a little girl who had waited months to meet the princesses, this was a big let-down.

The wait at the Princess Faire was much more enjoyable to us.

Look for the Hidden Mickeys

by Kristen R.

Last time I went to Disneyland I found out that almost all the rides at Disneyland have a Mickey Mouse head hidden somewhere in the ride. It's really fun to look for them.


If you can't find them just ask the ride operators to tell you.

Try to touch the brass apple in front of Snow White's Scary Adventures.

by Beth

If you do, a loud thunder clap will sound and the witch will laugh loudly. It's pretty cool, and exciting for little ones.

Horse with the golden tooth!

by Wendy
(CA)

Legend has it that Walt's daughter had a favorite horse on the King Aurthur's Carousel. He painted one of its teeth gold so she would always be able to find it. My oldest daughter was lucky enough to ride it last time we went!
