Disneyland Halloween Time Part 3 - Woody's Roundup

Since its inception in 1986, Big Thunder Ranch in Frontierland has been home to many different shows and events; from the original petting zoo and BBQ, to the Festival of Fools, Billy Hill and the Hill Billies and now it is host to a couple of seasonal events.

During Halloween Time, you will find Woody, Jessie and Bullseye gracing the stage in Woody's Round-up. Kids of all ages can enjoy the brief show, hosted by Tex the Cowboy. You can decorate a cookie, color, make a craft or wander over to the petting zoo, the Scaredy Crow Shack and even watch an expert pumpkin carver at work. Not only that, but for the avid scrapbooker, there are fantastic photo spots and you can even get a picture with Woody and Jessie after the show. Bullseye works so hard during the show that he has to leave immediately to go back to the barn for some hay.

Big Thunder Ranch is definitely a stopping spot if you are at Disneyland in October!

Hey, howdy hey kids! This is the Woody's Round-up show. If you're lucky, you may get to go up on stage with Tex and attest to the tasty nutritional goodness of Cowboy Crunchies!

Cowboy Crunchies make you STRONG!!

This particular Tex is a friend of the family.

Disneyland Halloween Time Part 2 - Partners

As usual, the Partner's Statue in the Plaza Hub is decorated for the seasons. Halloween Time at Disneyland is no exception. In 2006, the statue was surrounded by yellow and orange mums and artificially carved pumpkins representing each of the "lands" in Disneyland. In 2007 and 2008 the only thing that changed were the hanging plants and the color of the flowers around the statue. This year there were colorful snap dragons and last year there were pansies.

Pooh represents Critter Country.

Jack represents New Orleans Square.

Woody represents Frontierland

Buzz represents Tomorrowland.

Tarzan represents Adventureland.

Tink represents Fanstasyland.

Roger Rabbit represents Toon Town

At night they are all lit up, but I didn't ever take the time to stop and get pictures. It gets crazy busy with the parade and fireworks. Something to shoot for next October!
