Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend (spring)

Disneyland Resort becomes Never Land for a magical weekend especially for fairies and princesses. It starts with a family 5K and kids' races and culminates with a 13.1-mile run that weaves you through Disneyland Resort. Just follow the second star to the right!

Disneyland Resort Half-Marathon Weekend (fall)

Chase your dreams at the Happiest Race on Earth for the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend. Imagination is your destination on this 13.1-mile course that winds through the city of Anaheim, California and the Disneyland Resort. Run through Sleeping Beauty Castle and discover the treasures that lie in Disney California Adventure Park while high-fiving your favourite Disney Characters along the way. There's a little magic around every corner for the whole family!

Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort (September/October)

The Happiest Place on Earth gets spookier during Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort. Creep on over and meet up with the Disney villains—plus Mickey Mouse and some of his Disney Character friends, all dressed up in their Halloween best. And be sure to check out special fun in Disneyland Park, like Haunted Mansion Holiday, Space Mountain: Ghost Galaxy and, on select nights, Mickey's Halloween Party*.

For even more "treats," head over to Disney California Adventure Park, where a Halloween-spiced Mad T Party offers up some ghoulish surprises. And as always, the staff of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ is positively dying for you to drop in. Too scary? Shift gears and cruise over to Cars Land for some laughs. Or, if you need a night-light, catch a performance of the spectacular World of Color.

*Space is limited. Admission to this event requires a separately priced ticket valid only for the specific theme park, event date and hours, while supplies last.
