In just under two weeks, Halloween time will officially begin at the Disneyland Resort. We will find pumpkins and adorable decorations throughout Disneyland and Disney California Adventure; Oogie Boogie Bash will begin, and the Spookiest Time of Year will be in full swing. This year, in honor of Halloween, Disneyland is bringing a brand-new scavenger hunt to Downtown Disney that will be frighteningly fun for children of all ages!
Beginning September 9, all Guests visiting Downtown Disney will participate in Pluto’s Pumpkin Pursuit. A bunch of fun information about the new event was shared by Disney Parks Blog:
Celebrate the Halloween season with your gourd-eous group by partaking in this very special pumpkin hunt from September 9 to October 31, 2021 or while supplies last.
Pluto Pumpkin Pursuit is subject to cancellation or change without notice including—without limitation—dates, surprises and prices. Game boards available while supplies last. Limit 5 game board purchases per Guest. One surprise per game board. Game board valid for redemption through November 7, 2021 or while surprise supplies last.
Please inquire about applicable discounts at the time of purchase.
Pluto’s Pumpkin Pursuit is available for all Guests and is incredibly easy to take part in. Here is what you need to do if you want to join in Pluto’s Halloween scavenger hunt.
- Purchase a game board and stickers at select merchandise locations, including World of Disney, Disney’s Pin Traders, Disney Home, The Disney Dress Shop, and WonderGround Gallery.
- Have fun hunting for hidden decorative pumpkins themed to Disney characters and placing the corresponding stickers on your game board.
- Whether you choose to hunt for pumpkins or not, return your game board to a redemption location—World of Disney or Disney’s Pin Traders—for a spooky surprise.
For Disneyland’s annual Easter Egg-stravaganza, the prizes for completing your Easter Egg hunt are small plastic eggs with a toy inside. However, Disney seems to have upped their game for Pluto’s Pumpkin Pursuit. Take a look at the wickedly adorable prizes below!
At the time of publication, Disney has not said the price for Guests to participate in Pluto’s Pumpkin Pursuit. However, since Disney does say to inquire about applicable discounts, it seems that Disney’s new Magic Key Holders may be able to use their Magic Keys to get a discount on whatever the price is.
Halloween Time at Disneyland Resort will run from September 3 through October 31, and Guests will be able to enjoy fun theming, Halloween Screams, Fireworks at Disneyland Park, and more.
