Mickey's Halloween Party 2011


This year I was able to go to two of Mickey's Halloween Parties. Both times were on Tuesdays and they were in the earlier part of October.  Last year I went on Halloween day and it was fun but Tuesdays are my favorite because of the smaller crowds and the short wait times for rides.  Whatever day you go though, the parties are a lot of fun!  My husband and I have gone the last few years and plan to continue going!
Here are some of this year's party highlights:

The park again had extra decorations for the Halloween party and there was spooky fun Halloween music playing throughout the park!

The parties usually have characters you don't always get to meet and this year's had some great ones! Pumpkin Duffy had a spot at Disneyland for this even though he is usually only seen at California Adventure!  I especially enjoyed seeing Phineas, Ferb, and Agent P!

Over by the Rivers of America was Pirates Wharf where you could meet different pirates such as Captain Hook and my sister's favorite, Captain Jack Sparrow!

There was also a small parade where you got to see several characters dressed up for Halloween!  Even the Country Bears were there!  Seeing Miss Piggy at the end of it was my favorite part!  


Both parties that I went to had short waits for many of the rides.  I rode Haunted Mansion, Big Thunder, Star Tours with little to no wait and we even went on Ghost Galaxy after waiting only 5-10 minutes.  At the second party we caught the special fireworks show, Halloween Screams, that you can only see at the parties.  We had a great spot for it and I was having so much fun watching them, I didn't take a single picture!   It's set to great Halloween themed music and features several Disney villains.

Halloween Time at Disneyland!

I love Halloween time at Disneyland!  During this time the park has Halloween decorations, themed rides, and some characters you don't always get to see.  Space Mountain is taken over by a creepy ghost and is called Ghost Galaxy. Plus Haunted Mansion is Nightmare Before Christmas themed! You can see Duffy dressed as a pumpkin at California Adventure or at Mickey's Halloween Parties. I've spent a lot of time at the parks this October with the wedding so I thought I would post a few photos of the Halloween decor and characters from this year.  I went to two of the Mickey's Halloween Parties this month so I'll share some photos from that in my next post!  

Hold on to your coins!  It's the Sheriff of Nottingham and he's collecting taxes!

Coming Soon!

I've sort of disappeared the last couples months.  I'm going to let the Muppets explain where I've been:

I got married last week at the Disneyland Resort and it was a truly wonderful and magical day!

Now that I won't be busy with wedding planning I will again have time to get back to work on this site- so check back for new posts coming soon!
