While Knott’s Berry farm is credited for the official first transformation from ordinary theme park to Halloween-themed Park, many other amusement parks have also undergone spooky transformations nationwide during the month of October.
Disneyland however, has been slow to make the transformation. While the park has not failed to acknowledge Halloween, the entire park does not take on a completely different look in order to do so. Some nods to the holiday include the Haunted Mansion ride, which features characters from “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” In addition, children are invited to trick-or-treat at Disneyland on October 31st.
This year, to become even more Halloween-like, decorations were put up all over Disneyland in order to continue the celebration for children. Workers were asked to create, assemble and display festive décor all over the park during graveyard shifts, in order to show Disney’s love for Halloween.
Does Disneyland still compare to other theme parks nationwide during the Halloween season?
