If you were planning on attending Mickey’s Halloween Party at Disneyland Resort this year and haven’t purchased your tickets, I’m sorry to say all party dates are now sold out online.
The following dates are now sold out:

October 2, 5, 9, 12, 16, 19, 23, 26, 31
There may still be tickets available for some parties that can be purchased in person at Disneyland’s ticket booths. Be sure to check!
Mickey’s Halloween Party takes place at Disneyland park and features trick-or-treating, fireworks, dancing, photo ops with your favorite Disney characters, and more AND attendees have the ability to visit both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park with special event ticket during Mickey’s Halloween Party—entry to either park begins 3 hours before the Party start time.
Beginning October 16 on DisneyWorld.com, guests will be able to access a new online vacation-planning destination and purchase tickets priced by the date of their visit. According to Disney, these changes are designed to simplify the booking experience, give guests an enhanced way to purchase theme park tickets and help them more easily plan the Disney vacation of their dreams.
The new online vacation-planning destination features park offering overviews, travel tips from Disney Parks Moms Panelists and customized suggestions based on each guest’s personal preferences – helping guests make more informed decisions.
When guests are ready to purchase tickets online, they may use an interactive online calendar, which displays different prices based on the dates guests choose to visit and states tickets will need to be used during a specific time period. The calendar also allows guests to quickly see the lowest-priced days within a month. For example, prices may be lower during off-peak travel periods.
Once tickets are purchased, guests will be able to continue seamlessly planning their vacation on the website through My Disney Experience, which guides guests through the different phases and steps of personalizing their vacation to make the most of their travel party’s unique interests. Guests can manage their plans through the My Disney Experience mobile app as well, where they will also be able to access the interactive calendar and purchase their tickets on the go.
Disney states the reason for this change is due to crowds and changing the ticket pricing will allow them to better distribute attendance throughout the year so that they can continue to improve and deliver a great experience.
