Forget about the special events of previous years, the 2023 edition focuses on an enriched experience accessible to all visitors on this day.

Disney Halloween Festival Must-Sees
Of course, all the iconic activities of the Disney Halloween Festival will be back in 2023. Starting with the special Halloween parade, with Mickey and friends in costumes, which will bring Main Street to life. Always a crowd-pleasing moment for families.
Another highlight is meeting the Disney Villains, for guaranteed spooky photos. Maleficent and Captain Hook will be among those in attendance. And what would Halloween at Disney be without the traditional twilight at Sleeping Beauty Castle? Chills and wonder guaranteed.
On the attraction front, Phantom Manor, hugely popular with fans, will exceptionally open its doors throughout the Halloween period. Same for Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. In short, plenty to enjoy among the pumpkins and friends.
Earlier Dates in 2023
Notable change this year: the Disney Halloween Festival starts on October 1st, and no longer in early September as in previous years.
A date more consistent with the calendar, allowing guests to make the most of the Halloween atmosphere throughout the entire month of October, without encroaching on back-to-school season. Mark your calendars!
What Are the Ticket Prices for Halloween?
Several options are available this year to enjoy Halloween at Disneyland Paris. It depends on your needs and desires.
The most forward-thinking will opt for a Stay Package including park tickets and a hotel. Prices decrease based on the number of nights. A turnkey package ideal for an extended family or friends weekend.
Dated tickets for 1 to 4 days are also available. They grant access to both Disney Parks. A good plan for regulars staying outside the parks. Good to know: tickets can be canceled up to 3 days before the date for added flexibility.
Finally, the non-dated, 1 year valid ticket is perfect for those wanting to keep their options open or gift a Disney entry without a fixed date. The ideal surprise gift! Whatever you choose, book early to get the best rates.
