With just over a week left of Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort, there's still plenty of time to seek adventure with many Halloween themed or inspired attractions around the Disneyland Resort.
MouseInfo's own gilded lady Shauna was invited to transport herself into a new dimension, and speak with Mrs. Cookie Fortune on some attractions she might experience during Halloween Time. Our favorite is Haunted Mansion Holiday, but there is also Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy, and even Tower of Terror at Disney California Adventure.

The El Capitan Theater recently revamped its Behind the Scenes tour and is now calling it the Disney Movie Palace and Backstage Tour, and we were invited to take the media tour last week. The tour lasts about 30 minutes and costs $15 and goes literally behind the scenes of this majestic theater. I thought this was a perfect length and every bit of it was extremely interesting. They are also offering an express tour for $5 if there is a movie playing that won't feature inside the theater but does take you backstage!
