Woody's Halloween Roundup is now the
Big Thunder Ranch Halloween Carnival!Woody's Halloween Roundup is now the Big Thunder Ranch Halloween Carnival!
Every year, Frontierland stages a Halloween celebration as part of "Halloween Time at Disneyland Park." The exact name and the exact features of the festival get updated every year or two. This year, the Big Thunder Ranch will be staging a Halloween carnival!
What activities will you enjoy at the Big Thunder Ranch Halloween Carnival? Woody the cowboy is out...and Disney Villains are in! You'll be able to conjure up some of the famous bad guys & gals of popular Disney movies...as well as play various types of carnival games.
Billy Hill and the Hillbillies are performing a special Halloween musical-comedy act on the Big Thunder Ranch stage...and are these fellows ever talented! In addition to the carnival games & Billy Hill's show, what else will you enjoy? Pumpkin carving, a petting zoo, and plenty of fabulous seasonal decorating!
Where can you find the Big Thunder Ranch at Disneyland Park? Head to the very back of Frontierland...out 'way behind the Big Thunder Mountain roller coaster.
Big Thunder Ranch Carnival ActivitiesAs you can see in the photo of the banner (to your left,) you'll find children's crafts going on at the Woody's Halloween Roundup area, too.
If your child enjoys doing a bit of coloring, this will give you a chance to rest on the benches in the shade for awhile!
Kids will also have fun petting the farm animals in a pen adjacent to Woody's Roundup. As you can see in the photo to your right, even the goats get in on the Halloween celebration by wearing a seasonal bandanna!
As most large and "politically correct" zoos are doing these days, young guests do NOT feed the animals here at Disneyland. Instead, they BRUSH the animals. Your toddlers won't stand much chance of being knocked over by a lively animal; the goats and sheep simply stand or lie still, for the most part.

Right next to Woody's Halloween Roundup, you'll be able to see a professional pumpkin carver at work making intricately designed Jack O Lanterns...many of which bear the image of a Disney or Pixar character!
A separate building in this area also houses cute pumpkin-headed scarecrows posed in vignettes. You can pose for pictures...and get still MORE ideas for seasonal decorating!
