I love checking out all the amazing Disneyland Jack o Lanterns each year. All through the parks – there are so many designs and clever groupings. It’s inspirational, and helps me come up with ideas for my own decor.
This year Disneyland has outdone itself, with pumpkins perched up high all along the entire length of Main street.
From City Hall right down to the Carnation Cafe, there are a wide variety of characters peeping down at you from atop balconies, awnings, movie marquees and windowsills. Each group seems to tell its own story. The decor only gets better after dark when the jack o lanterns light up with an eerie glow.
Here are a few of my favorite characters (and what I imagine they are thinking) from a recent visit to the park. Many of these are new this year, but my very most favorite Jack o Lantern is one that we like to visit every year. Scroll through the slide show to the very end to see which one that is!

I’ll Watch the Shop 7 of 16
If these guys could greet guests coming in an out of the store, I am certain they would. They might even offer to hold your packages and help you find what you were looking for.

Not really Jack-o-lanterns but these balloons are fun and floaty and have that Jack o Lantern feel.
