Disneyland's Diamond Celebration has finally come to an end, just as there's a welcome change of seasons in the park.
I spent last evening enjoying Disneyland's annual Halloween Time decorations. Most of the photos in this post were taken Monday night, while a few were taken earlier in the month.
Above, the tram route decorations are now up. The odd-looking background blocks the view of Stars Land construction.
Main Street U.S.A. is now fully decked out!
One of my favorite things each year is the Ray Bradbury Halloween Tree in Frontierland, which seemed to me to look especially beautiful this year:
Love the seasonal cup designs!
I had such a nice time sitting and chatting with friends at Coke Corner on Main Street last night.
I'm sad about the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror going away in favor of a Guardians of the Galaxy theme. I'm a Marvel fan but Guardians of the Galaxy simply doesn't fit with the Buena Vista Street theming. I continue to regret that Disney refused to invest in a "third gate" for its Star Wars and Marvel properties, which would have been a lot of fun while not disrupting so much at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure.
Disney California Adventure has brought back the "AP Days" theme from earlier this year and is offering passholders a different button each week in September. Here are the first three designs I've collected. The other button markets the 25th Anniversary Edition of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (1991):
I'm looking forward to attending Mickey's Halloween Party in mid-October!
