Halloween Time has come to Disneyland, and Team Mousetalgia reports on the arrival of this popular villainous season. But first, we welcome Kevin Kidney back to the show to give some history of the upcoming Anaheim Halloween Parade, what guests can expect at this year’s event, and the intriguing Disney ties to this special hometown celebration. Next, Dave and Becky review Disneyland’s “Unleash the Villains” Limited-Time Magic event on Friday, Sept. 13th, and describe the good, the bad, and the ugly. Dancing with DJs in Disneyland – is it a trend that’s here to stay, or a fad that never quite catches the public’s imagination? Then, we preview Disneyland’s annual Halloween Time celebration, and offer some special food reviews, a description of some of the special seasonal overlays and features, and offer our advice on enjoying the spooky season at the park. Finally, we offer our penultimate Club 33 review of the original club, with more food reviews and a brief discussion of the future of the storied restaurant. Plus – coast-to-coast Marty Sklar book signings, including a Walt Disney Family Museum event; Pixar’s La Luna story app; surviving Disneyland in the heat of SoCal’s Indian Summers – and more!
