Most people who grew up near Disneyland or Disney World know that Mickey Mouse loves to celebrate special dates on the calendar.

And although Halloween is a relatively new “holiday” in Japan, Disney Sea in Tokyo is spook-tacular!

On the Disney train, before entering the park, attendants walked around the cars with plastic pumpkins full of candy, handing it out only after the passengers said, “Trick-or-Treat.”

Inside the park, street lights, building and statues were decorated with skulls and Mickey Mouse jack-o’-lanterns. In the Mexican themed Lost River Delta area, Dia de los Muertos (day of the dead) skeletons hung everywhere.

The shops were full of Halloween-themed toys and trinkets including jack-o’-lantern Mickey heads for storing popcorn.

Disney Sea’s Halloween will run through Thursday.

If you miss it, don’t despair: Christmas is right around the corner.
