Disney Sea lights up for Halloween in Japan

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.
