Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree has begun its transformation into Mater’s Graveyard JamBOOree. The sign has been installed along with some bat wings above the Tow Mater sign. Outside of the queue, the tractor has put on his mummy costume.


Orange Halloween lights have been added to the office at Cozy Cone Motel. Soon, the orange cones will get their Halloween faces installed.

Also coming to Cars Land for Halloween time, the nearby Luigi’s Rollickin’ Roadsters takes guests on a wicked whirl as Luigi’s Honkin’ Haul-O-Ween. For the first time, the resident “car-acter” Guido will sport a ghoulish “car-stume” as he welcomes guests to the Casa Della Tires.

More Halloween Fun at Disney California Adventure

Halloween decorations and projections evoke an air of eeriness in Buena Vista Street. Plus, Cars Land becomes Radiator Screams, where the residents and establishments are decked out in their Haul-O-Ween best.

Honoring the Mexican traditions of Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), the vibrant Plaza de la Familia cultural experience once again brings brilliant marigolds, heartwarming live entertainment and family crafts to Paradise Gardens in Disney California Adventure Park from Sept. 1 through Nov. 2. Paradise Garden Grill will present a celebratory menu inspired by Mexican cuisine.

Throughout the experience, characters and music from Disney and Pixar’s Academy Award®-winning “Coco” highlight the everlasting bonds of family. Several times per day, “A Musical Celebration of Coco” presents a talented company of Folklórico dancers, plus Mariachi singers and musicians, that recount Miguel’s adventure to the Land of the Dead. Guests can also take photos with Miguel, enjoy Mariachi music, add remembrance notes to the Memory Wall, and more.

Over in Cars Land, Ramone will honor Día de los Muertos at his detailing shop with an “ofrenda” celebrating the life and career of the town’s good friend, Doc Hudson.

As the afternoon winds down each day, the thrills go up at Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! in Avengers Campus. Unique to Halloween Time, the attraction transforms into Guardians of the Galaxy – Monsters After Dark, a scream-worthy adventure to save Groot from creatures running amok in The Collector’s Fortress.
