Ghoulish enthusiasts are being encouraged to 'lose their heads' by discovering the dark side of Disney this Halloween.

The Headless Horseman will take centre stage by leading Hong Kong Disneyland's Glow in the Park Parade, complete with Jack Skellington, the pumpkin king of Halloweentown - from The Nightmare Before Christmas film - and dancing zombies.

Adventureland features the Revenge of the Headless Horseman exhibit, with the angry Headless Horseman seeking revenge on the conman running the travelling show.

Elsewhere, Main Street USA will be turned into Ghost Town, including the spooky Main Street Haunted Hotel. Adventureland includes a Cursed Jungle, with black magic bringing nocturnal creatures to life. Space Mountain has become 'Ghost Galaxy', with new thrills - and a few screams - while Tomorrowland features a party zone of non-stop performances, dances and art shows, including a Japanese 'Black Brigade' 4D projection.

Special Halloween dishes and snacks, including Jack Skellington shrimp dumplings, will be available at Disneyland restaurants and kiosks, while numerous Halloween-themed souvenirs will be on sale at shops. Trick or treats locations will be set up around the park for visitors - who are being encouraged to dress up in Halloween make-up and costumes.

People can enjoy a 'treat' of chocolate and marshmallows and have their photos taken with Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck.

During Disney's Haunted Halloween celebrations, visitors can enter the park after 6pm from Thursday night to Sunday night, until October 31. A night ticket costs only HK$228.
