Halloween is returning to Shanghai Disney Resort from October 5 through November 1, 2020. As the best time of year to dress up with family and friends, guests are invited to wear their most creative Halloween costumes as they gather together and prepare for an authentic seasonal celebration unlike any other.
Trick or Treating around the resort
In true Halloween tradition, Shanghai Disney Resort is inviting everyone to dress up and go trick-or-treating around the resort. From October 5 through November 1, guests can hunt for trick or treat locations throughout the resort and receive sweet surprises from Cast Members, but only if they say the magic words.
Villain Balcony Walk
As a special surprise this Halloween, select Disney Villains will make occasional appearances on the Enchanted Storybook Castle balcony in the all-new Villain Balcony Walk.
Donald’s Halloween Treat Cavalcade
As dusk falls each evening, Donald’s Halloween Treat Cavalcade will return to the parade route. This Halloween-themed cavalcade will fill the park with witches’ cackles as Donald Duck and Daisy Duck lead a procession of Disney Villains, including Hades, Maleficent, Dr. Facilier and the Queen of Hearts, to a backdrop of classic Halloween-themed Disney songs and a mesmerizing light show.
Guests should also keep a watchful eye out for Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Duffy, and all of their friends who will be joining the cavalcade in their Halloween costumes!
Ghost Pirates: A Trial of Darkness
Guests searching for some spooky fun can head to Treasure Cove, for the return of the hugely popular Ghost Pirates: A Trial of Darkness. Those making their way through the immersive pirate’s world in Shipwreck Shore must beware of the cursed crew, as they may become ensnared in the mysterious curse themselves!
“This IS Halloween!” Dance Party
Not to be missed this year is the “This IS Halloween!” Dance Party on the Pepsi E-stage in Tomorrowland. As the interactive dance party creeps and crawls on, complete with a live DJ and host, guests will be invited on stage to join in the fun and show off their costumes.
Meet Miguel in his hometown of Santa Cecilia
Don’t forget to take a trip to the hugely popular “Coco”-themed area in Adventure Isle, where Miguel and his hometown of Santa Cecilia will once again come to life from October 12 through November 8.
Halloween Days of Spook-tacular
This year the Halloween party is being extended to two whole days of frightful fun with the Halloween Days of Spook-tacular on October 30 and 31, where the party will creep long into the night. Guests with a ticket to the party are encouraged to don their best Halloween costumes – the more creative the better!
Evening guests can head to five different Party Zones dotted throughout Shanghai Disneyland, complete with live DJs, pumping music and Selfie Spots with Disney Villains!
At the end of the final “This IS Halloween!” Dance Party of the day, the ultimate winner of the costume contest will be chosen, and will be invited to ride in the Grand Marshal vehicle at the front of the nighttime pre-parade.
To cap off both evenings, guests will be able to marvel at the special Halloween Villains Fireworks Show, complete with a stirring soundtrack, Disney Villains projections, fire effects and plenty of fireworks.
Special Halloween Treats
Halloween wouldn’t be the same without delicious delicacies. In celebration of the spooky season, the resort is rolling out an amazing array of pumpkin-flavored desserts, including a Halloween Donald Waffle with Pumpkin-flavored Ice Cream, a Donald Pumpkin-flavored Ice Cream Waffle Cone, and a Donald Pumpkin-flavored Ice Cream at Il Paperino.
Those looking for something a little more regal can head to the Royal Banquet Hall, where a delicious four-course Halloween set menu can be found waiting to fill guests with warming family favorites.
The Halloween Mickey Afternoon Tea at Mickey & Pals Market Café will offer delicious brownies, cakes, and snacks.
If guests want to take home a memento after enjoying a snack, the StellaLou Halloween Sipper and Duffy Halloween Popcorn Bucket are available at quick service restaurants and outdoor vending carts.
Halloween Themed Merchandise
This year, guests can enjoy four new merchandise collections, including the Mickey and Friends Collection, Duffy and Friends Collection, “The Nightmare Before Christmas” Collection and, for the first time ever at Shanghai Disney Resort, the Halloween Villains Collection.
Guests can also get their hands on authentic Disney costumes to dress up like their favorite villains, including Maleficent and the Evil Queen.
