Despite our many visits to Disneyland Paris, we had not yet tested the park during the Halloween period. And then, it was the right timing, as the Marvel hotel had just opened its doors. So, before school holidays started in France, we booked a stay of three days and two nights. Enough to enjoy the magic of the park away from the crowds… EXCEPT… we hadn’t planned for an important element: school holidays in other European countries!

So, a word of advice, if you want to discover Disneyland Paris for Halloween, check the dates of the school holidays in Germany, the Netherlands and the countries of northern Europe. They are very likely to be there at that time of the year!

We went to Disneyland Paris for Halloween during the Covid-19 period so the interactions with the characters were very limited and there was no parade at the time. So this article does not necessarily reflect what you will have the opportunity to experience if you discover the park at this time next year, for example.

We found that probably the most decorated part of Disneyland Paris was Frontierland. There were decorations on Main Street too, with a bit of a spooky soundtrack, but it was pretty limited nonetheless. In fact, we already felt the park was ready to go into Christmas mode. In Frontierland, however, there were quite a few pumpkins and decorations, which is where we felt most in the Halloween mood.

Halloween - Disneyland Paris

Must do

If you want to enjoy the Halloween atmosphere, we recommend that you go to the Haunted House at Disneyland Paris, but at nightfall, that’s when it’s the coolest. And it’s not very difficult since the sun sets very early in October.

The princess loved

The princess could live in Disneyland Paris, so it’s not very difficult to make her happy when she is there. Regarding Halloween, she liked the soundtrack in the park, but also the beautiful decorations combining flowers and pumpkins in Frontierland. Also be sure to offer the kids a make-up near Big Thunder Mountain.

The Ups for Kids

Your kids are over 8 years old

They’ll love being in the park, Halloween or not! But the decorations with ghosts or the visit to the Haunted House in the evening will obviously please them. Do not hesitate to dress up, it is also what’s fun with Disneyland Paris, being able to feel like kids! You will also find Halloween photo spots in the Disney Village.

Your kids are less than 8 years old

So start by making sure they’re dressed up to be the Halloween mood. Offer them a little spooky makeup and don’t forget to go over to Coco’s to tell them about El Dia de los Muertos, which corresponds to our Halloween.
