Halloween Carnival Comes to Disneyland

DAPs Magic Disney News – by Mr. DAPs 

This Halloween, Disneyland will be adding a Halloween Carnival to its Halloween festivities. Those who visited Frontierland this summer might find some elements familiar as it will look similar to the jamboree that could be found at Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree.

The Disney Parks Blog made the announcement and described what will be happening there:

You can make your own Halloween mask at the craft station, and then join Mickey Mouse and his pals in a “Mask-Parade.” Try your hand at carnival games, like tossing rings on a witch’s hat or spinning the Crystal Ball Fortune Wheel to seek your own happy Halloween fortune. Everyone’s favorite Frontierland musical group joins the fun, too, as Billy Hill and the “Haunted” Hillbillies take the stage six times a day for a round of appropriately spooky tunes, all done in their inimitable bluegrass style.

The highlight of the Halloween Carnival is sure to be the Magic Cauldron Sideshow. Dare to venture into this tented area, and you may be asked to help cast a magic spell, conjuring a Disney Villain from his or her realm to meet your group before returning to worlds beyond. Disney Villains fans will want to visit more than once, since you never know which Disney Villain might be summoned each time. Sounds like a real “scream!”


The Halloween Carnival will begin in Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree on September 14th and will continue through October 31, 2012.
