’tis the season to start your Halloween planning, if you haven’t already! I love to participate in local festivities and like to have our family costumes ready and the house decorated when October rolls around (or earlier, if that’s your thing!). I’m more of a “decorate for Autumn in general” kind of person and have fewer specifically Halloween decorations, but some of these are just so fun! And of course there are always so many fun Pinterest-type of treats to make for the family. I’ve collected some of my favorite Disney Halloween tricks, treats and costumes to share with you here.

It’s a Nightmare
Jack and Sally have taken over the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland and you can get in the spirit in your house too! Check out these Nightmare Before Christmas and Haunted Mansion themed items that add just the right amount of scare to your lair. I love the cool details on that baseball tee (and I wish it came in women’s sizes!)
Jack Skellington cookies have to be the easiest because you only need to two colors of royal icing and they go together so quickly! I made these cookies for a bake sale and they were the first to sell out.
Spooky Little Touches
I like to make my seasonal decor subtle, almost like a Hidden Mickey. These Halloween dishtowels just speak to me…I mean we all need dishtowels, right? Why not make them seasonally fun!

This pumpkin spice cupcake is available at Disneyland and could be replicated at home.
All Things Star Wars
Star Wars Halloween costumes have been popular since I was a kid and there’s no stopping them now, with the release of the new films.
Check out these cool Star Wars-inspired pumpkins I found on Pinterest from DIY Candy!
The New Trends
From Moana to Finding Dory to Tsum Tsums, here are three costumes that are perfectly on-trend! And the goggles on the Dory costume…love!!
If a pumpkin could ever be adorable, these are it! Tsum Tsum pumpkins from Disney Rewards.
For the Kids
I like the bodysuit costumes for baby that allow for dress up that’s still comfortable & diaper convenient. And cool accessories for older kids that want to participate but might not want to dress in full costume.
