    Disneyland Resort
    Sip in a not-too-spooky setting, with cute seasonal treats galore, in Anaheim on select days through October.

    AN ATMOSPHERIC AFTERNOON: If Jack Skellington invited you over to his pumpkin patch to enjoy afternoon tea, what sort of treats might you eat? Would the ghoulish goodies hail from Halloween Town's very finest restaurants? Would Jack himself have overseen the baking and decorating of the cookies? And would his faithful dog Zero try to snatch snacks from the table, given that he's usually airborne? Socializing with the Pumpkin King is a not-too-dastardly daydream of those who adore "Tim Burton's A Nightmare Before Christmas." And maybe one day you'll receive such an invitation from Mr. Skellington — we imagine the glittery card would arrive in your mailbox at midnight — but, for now, there is a sumptuous afternoon tea with spirited Skellington-esque overtones.

And it isn't all confections on your table, do note; sandwiches, too, like the classic cucumber and watercress, will fulfill the meal part of experience. A Special Halloween "Trick or Treat" Tea is burbling each Friday, Saturday, and Sunday afternoon, from noon to 3 p.m., right through to Sunday, Oct. 29. But you can bet Jack has some magic up his very long sleeve: The tea will also be open for reservations on Halloween afternoon, which is a Tuesday in 2017.
