After a champagne toast at dusk, a Studio Page will walk you through the moonlit streets of the backlot and lead you to exclusive areas never before seen by the public. As you venture deeper into over 100 years of Paramount history, you’ll lose yourself in the vast sound stages, vintage film vaults, and hidden passageways of our legendary studio. Witness the birthplace of the industry’s greatest innovations and rediscover the triumphs of the pioneers of filmmaking at the first and only remaining major film studio in Hollywood. We’ll provide the flashlights, but bring your sense of adventure.

Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort
Sep 15-Oct 31 | Disneyland Resort | Ticketed | @Disneyland #HalloweenTime

For the first time, Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort is also taking over Disney California Adventure Park, with areas such as Buena Vista Street and Cars Land getting all dressed up for holiday fun. The recently-opened Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! attraction gets some additional thrills as it transforms into Guardians of the Galaxy – Monsters After Dark each night. Additional attractions will receive spooky fun updates, and there will be plenty of Halloween decorations, themed food and beverage, eerie merchandise and more. Combined with favorite Halloween traditions at Disneyland Park including Haunted Mansion Holiday, Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy and Pumpkin Festival on Main Street, U.S.A., Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort is now twice as much fun.

Halloween excitement begins as guests first enter Disney California Adventure. An oversized, shadowy silhouette of Oogie Boogie, the villainous boogeyman from “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas” ominously leers over guests passing through the main entrance. In a spooky but fun moment, Oogie appears to unleash a swarm of bats which sound as if they fly down Buena Vista Street towards Hollywood Land, Cars Land and beyond. Guests will even see the bats circling the tower of the Carthay Circle Theatre.

Make sure to check out Cars Land Haul-O-Ween and Guardians of the Galaxy – Monsters After Dark.

The new season will bring unnerving nightmares to life as it debuts three all-new, unique haunted attractions, each introducing new menacing storylines and heinous never-before-seen characters.

Dark Ride (New for 2017) – Guests will journey through an abandoned carnival ride where cruel characters still linger in the shadows in Dark Ride, Knott’s Scary Farm’s newest maze. The carnival attraction has become a refuge for sideshow freaks and now those shunned performers have created an ominous world where they plan to unleash terror on those who enter. Dark Ride will lead brave visitors through a treacherous path and into the bowels of a long neglected attraction as sinister shadows and horrifying scenes cast darkness over the once pleasant ride.
Pumpkin Eater (New for 2017) – Daring guests will attempt to survive the wrath of the murderous 7-foot tall creature that haunts the old woods surrounding The Hollow in this year’s new maze, Pumpkin Eater. The notorious creature is on the prowl, hidden within the dark confines of the haunted town he once terrorized. To escape the sinister Pumpkin Eater’s wrath all who enter must go on a quest through the silent town of victims, face a cave of crawling insects and solve the labyrinth of thorns that blocks the only way out.
Trick-or-Treat: Lights Out (New for 2017) - Scared of the dark? Returning more sinister and twisted than ever before, guests are invited to step inside the Green Witch’s haunted home and venture through its dark pathways in Trick or Treat: Lights Out. Armed with only a faulty flashlight, brave visitors must face the terror of the Green Witch’s house completely in the dark. Featuring new state-of-the-art effects, unexpected scares and other eerie surprises, Trick-or-Treat is back to terrorize like never before.

Located on Santa Monica Blvd between Doheny Dr and La Cienega Blvd, WeHo Halloween Carnaval takes over on October 31 from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. Make sure you’re energized—the parties continue in nearby venues.

While the street party is free (no tickets required) and open to the public, it’s best to leave the kids and pets at home. Between large crowds and wild costumes, this celebration is on the naughty side. If the people-watching doesn’t sufficiently entertain, there are multiple music stages along the boulevard blasting live sets and DJ tracks. This year’s performers and Queen of Carnaval are still TBA, so stay tuned for updates.

Alcohol isn’t served or allowed on the street, but don’t worry—there will be killer drink specials as nearby bars to sustain your celebratory buzz. You can get your grub on at the many food trucks parked along the street! Before you go, remember to pack lightly—no backpacks, camera bags or totes allowed. Attendees are asked to carry items in clear plastic bags this year.
