Disneyland’s Mickey’s Halloween Party is much different than its East Coast counterpart. Disneyland’s version offers more meet and greets with villains that aren’t available in Disney World, a special meet and greet pre-party in Toontown and many special character costumes.
If you hope to meet some of the classic characters in their special costumes, you will need to line up at the Toontown gate between 5:00 and 5:30pm. The pre-party begins 1 hour before the party begins. There will be a long line, but many will spend their time trick or treating. Head straight for Toontown City Hall area and you might meet some of these special characters. (These were the 2015 meets, I’ll update 2016 after the 1st party).
