Awesome Facts About Haul-O-Ween at Cars Land at Disneyland Resort
Disney theme parks around the globe really pull out all of the stops during the Halloween Season from special party nights, attraction overlays, parades, eats, treats and stage shows. However, if we had to pick one of our favorite Disney destinations come the Spooky Season it is definitely Cars Land in Disney California Adventure. Each year, this area of the park is magically transformed from Radiator Springs to Radiator Screams as part of their Haul-O-Ween celebration.
The residents of Cars Land decorate this area of the theme park with lots of fun car-themed touches each Halloween. They can even be found wearing there car-stumes during this festive celebration that runs at Disneyland Resort from September 6- October 31st! In addition, two of your favorite Cars Land attractions get seasonal overlays. Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree becomes Mater’s Graveyard JamBooree. Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters becomes Luigi’s Honkin’ Haul-O-Ween. In addition to some pretty awesome decorations and lighting both rides also boast their own killer Halloween soundtracks.
