Halloween at Disneyland 2017 Part 4

By Nick

Halloween at Disneyland 2017 Part 4
Sat. Oct. 28th continued... 

Part 3 can be found here, while Part 2 is here and Part 1 here.

After riding Guardians of the Galaxy-Mission: Breakout 3 times in an hour, we headed over to Cars Land. We passed through A Bug's Land to get there, and came across this...

As was seen in part 1, Sleeping Beauty Castle over in Disneyland had snow on the roof. Christmas decorating had begun. Almost every shop had Christmas merchandise out. It was difficult to find Halloween clothing. We did eventually purchase a couple of items, but it was a hunt. But I digress.

We rode Mater's Junkyard Jamboree, and then enjoyed second breakfast at Flo's.

Mater was dressed up for Halloween!

One of the things I was most excited about on this trip was the various seasonal and Halloween themed culinary offerings, and the Grape Ghoulant Shake was pretty fantastic!

We headed over to Disneyland. One of the reasons I love Disneyland Resort so much is the closeness of it all. Yes, it is a fraction of the size of Walt Disney World, but there is so much fun packed into such a small space here!

As soon as we entered the park we hopped a double decker bus and took a ride up Main Street U.S.A. , note Minnie and Mickey on either side of the photo below.

The second story of one of these old fashioned vehicles is a wonderful way to get a different perspective of the park.

Afterwards, we took some pictures in front of the snow covered Sleeping Beauty Castle...

... before heading to Tomorrowland, which is where Disneyland's Star Wars Launch Bay is located.

The Launch Bay here is smaller, but with 3 characters, instead of 2.
Like in Florida, they have Kylo Ren and Chewbacca.

Here you'll still find Darth Vader!

I can't recall what he said to us, but clearly it was very alarming.

As we left DL to head over to The Disneyland Hotel, the sun was finally burning off the morning clouds.

Barbie and I met our friends Amy and Matt, and their wonderful kids for lunch at Trader Sam's.

After eating we took a walk through the Disneyland Hotel gift shop before saying goodbye and walking through Downtown Disney, returning to Disneyland just in time to use our FastPasses for Space Mountain. Another ride that is better in Disneyland than Walt Disney World!

We returned to the Grand Californian for a nice rest in the main lobby next to the fireplace.

After our little siesta we returned to Disneyland, which was as crowded as on the previous evening. We sat at the Railroad Station and people watched before taking a ride around the park. Another attraction that beats WDW, since we get a ride through the Grand Canyon Diorama and Primeval World!

Before heading out for the evening we stopped for a photo with Minnie!

Stop back for Part 5 soon!
