Are you ready for a fun-filled weekend of OC family Halloween events?  This Sunday, October 30th, 2011 from 8am – 11am you will have a chance to bring your kids to the MOST FUN Halloween party ever and give back at the same time at the 20th annual Pumpkins & Pancakes Halloween Extravaganza at South Coast Plaza.

What I especially love about this event is with every ticket purchase, you will be able to choose whether you would like your money to benefit one of three amazing Orange County charities helping local children: Casa Orange CountyCHOC Children’s Foundation and Orangewood Children’s Foundation.

I have gone to this event several times and it is one of my favorite seasonal family events in OC.  At it, you will find the Macy’s and Crate and Barrel wing of South Coast Plaza completely transformed into a multi-level rocking Halloween party!

You can enjoy a delicious gourmet pancake breakfast by one of my favorite breakfast spots, Plums Café and Catering, along with music for dance parties, a petting zoo, face painting, balloon artists, arts & crafts, caricature drawings, professional photos, hair feather artists, surprise characters, silent auction, opportunity prizes and more!

All kids dress in their costumes, so make sure to dress them up and take advantage of all the great photo ops!

Tickets are $30 per person if purchased by noon TODAY (10/28) and $35 at the door. Children under two years old are free.

For more information, visit the Pumpkins and Pancakes 2011 website.

Have a great weekend everyone! See you back on Monday!

It’s Halloween Time at Disneyland!

I have been to Halloween Time at Disneyland the past two years and it is one of our absolute FAVORITE family events for a spooky good time! Starting today, through October 31st, the park is decorated in ghoulishly delightful Halloween decor and has lots of fun in store for the whole family.

Mickey’s Halloween Party, a separate ticket after hours party, has become an annual highlight of Halloween Time for trick-or-treating families and will take place in Disneyland park on 10 special Monday, Tuesday and Friday nights: Sept. 30 and Oct. 3,7,11,14,18,21, 25, 28 and 31.

Tickets purchased in advance for Mickey’s Halloween Party are $49 most days, while tickets purchased on the event days are $59.  All tickets to Mickey’s Halloween Party on Friday, Oct. 28, and Halloween Night, Monday, Oct. 31, are $64. Tickets are available at Disneyland.com/halloween.

Mickey’s Halloween Party invites children to wear their costumes (and adults too!) and trick-or-treat at the resort. Disneyland + costumes and trick or treating? Could it get more fun for the kids?!

This fun party features Disney villains, Mickey Mouse and his friends also in their costumes, along with the seasonal transformations of Haunted Mansion into Haunted Mansion Holiday and Space Mountain into Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy.

Highlights of Mickey’s Halloween Party include:

* Newly themed dance parties

* New character photo locations

* The special opportunity to play in Disneyland for three hours before the party starts

* Trick or Treating – candy and healthy treats ­- in the ultimate Disney neighborhood

* The “Halloween Screams” fireworks spectacular

* “Mickey’s Costume Party” cavalcade, performed twice nightly

* Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland is transformed for the Pumpkin Festival. More than 300 pumpkins will be on display and none of them are the same!

* Visitors to Big Thunder Ranch in Frontierland will find ranch animals, pumpkin carvers, Halloween décor and activities for youngsters.

* And much, much more!

I can’t more highly recommend this event for the entire family and now that they also offer you the opportunity to arrive and play in the park up to 3 hours prior to the party starting, it is a fabulous opportunity to get a long afternoon and evening of fun at Disneyland!

Have a great weekend everyone!

See you back on Monday!
