As usual, the parks look great. I particularly like what they did with Cars Land.

DCA and DL look great! I can't believe it's been nearly 10 years since my last visit. Cars land, Guardians, and the special edition Space Mountain version are all very alluring..

CarsLand looks great. I've seen the animation but actually seeing how it really looks is amazing. I really hope they'll keep the Disney California Adventure Halloween theme when we visit in a couple years during this time. Was there anything else at DCA or was it just in the front part of the park? Does DCA do a Halloween Party like Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween party? The food still looks delicious.

My boys had the fortunate experience last year when meeting Minnie in her costume, they were the last one's in line and when Minnie was going on her "break" she held their hands and took them near the backstage area, but then Goofy came out in his costume and they got another photo op with him. It was so awesome and my older son still talks about how he met them in their costumes.

Thanks for the excellent pics! Look forward to checking out Carsland in a couple of weeks. Lot of new sugar treats popped up too, all look pretty good.

I'd be really surprised if it wasn't around. If anything, I think it could even get expanded upon.

To my knowledge it's just Cars Land, Guardians, and Buena Vista Street. Brittney didn't have time at the event to check out the rest of the park, but nothing was advertised for the other areas.

Not yet, but I suspect that's the direction the park is headed in. They could sell a lot more MNSSHP tickets if the event was at both parks, and with MNSSHP tickets currently selling out well in advance, the demand is clearly there. IMO I don't think the DCA Halloween offering is quite as good as Disneyland's yet, but if they added a Halloween World of Color show and some simple theming around the pier I would think they could divide the crowds between the two parks pretty nicely.
