Contributing photographer Jason of disneygeek.com sends us these photos from his trip to the parks on Friday, September 12, 2014 featuring a first look at HalloweenTime.
Halloween Time kicked off at the Disneyland Resort today. In this picture set I feature the Halloween related pictures. There will be an additional update with other photos.
The Mickey and Friends Tram Stop features Halloween Time Billboards
Some Downtown Disney Banners feature Halloween (the reverse side Cars Land).
The entrance turnstile work is complete and the character pumpkins are out in their usual places.
Main Street is home to the pumpkin festival. The red, white and blue of summer is gone and orange, yellow and pumpkins now on the buildings. These are atop the Mad Hatter shop.
The large pumpkin Mickey in town square has returned
As I walked up Main Street took pictures of the pumpkins on the buildings.
A travel mug is available at several locations. This one in Coke Corner.
Approaching the Big Thunder Ranch BBQ, it is decked out for Halloween as usual.
The Halloween Carnival takes place daily in the Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree area. Here is the schedule.
The Pirates League is present again.
A favorite of mine…the pumpkin carvers.
Since it was the first day not a lot done yet…but a couple.
Elvis Stitch carved into this pumpkin.
Characters were roaming around as usual. Here Minnie is signing a picture for a guest.
Halloween Crafts have returned so you can color a mask to use in the parade.
The Games of Fun have returned. This year Cast a Spell ring toss and Wheel of Fortune.
Carnival Treats is between the games and tent.
The menu. The only Halloween themed item is the Candy Corn Cotton Candy.
Pirates League is available in the Jamboree area during Halloween Time. There were plenty of cast members waiting for guests. None stopped by while I was in the area.
There was a Disney film crew and photographer on hand. Guessing we will see a Parks Blog posting soon.
The Scare-Dy-Crow Shack
Frontierland is celebrating Dia De Los Muertos in Zocalo Park again.
The Ray Bradbury Halloween Tree is back in Frontierland.
There are several locations with special offerings for Halloween Time. Here is a Maleficent Dragon Sipper.

Thought this was funny. A guest was taking a picture of Mickey and Minnie photo-bombed in the background.
Time for the Mask-arade again.
Noticed this sign near the entrance. It was re-used from last year. Still lists the Haunted Hillbillies.
Paid a visit to the Haunted Mansion Holiday that opened today.
