Home Base San Diego: A Spooky Day Trip to Disneyland

Take a Spooktacular Day Trip to Disneyland

San Diego is the perfect place to make your home base in Southern California during a fall vacation. You can enjoy great local attractions including the beach, SeaWorld and LEGOLAND, then take a quick day trip or two to the mountains for some skiing or snowboarding, Joshua Tree National Park for some hiking, or Disneyland for some holiday family fun.

Disneyland is a great option for a day trip full of spooktacular Halloween fun including hundreds of carved pumpkins, Disney villains, a festive Haunted Mansion decorated by Jack Skellington, Halloween treats and more.

The best part: the drive from downtown San Diego to Disneyland is just over 90 minutes (but plan for a two-hour drive just in case of traffic problems), meaning you can be back in San Diego that same night after a full day of Disney fun and at the beach the next day!

Here is a short preview of the fun and excitement you will find during a day trip to Disneyland’s Halloween Time:
