A little over a week ago my husband and I went to Mickey's Halloween Party at Disneyland. It's become tradition for us and we've gone the last several years. It's interesting to see how it's grown since we first went in 2007. Back then the parties took place at California Adventure and since then the parties have evolved and have even moved over to Disneyland.
We always have a nice time although I must admit we do miss the days when the parties were less popular and you felt like you had the park to yourself (the California Adventure party days). Last year was our wedding and I had family in town for it so some of us were able to all go together to the Halloween party the day after the wedding! We went a second time with friends right after our wedding week and we had a great time with them as well!
This year we waited until the last minute to get our tickets but were able to get some for the Friday before Halloween. One of the things I love about the parties is that grown ups are also allowed to wear costumes as long as they abide by Disney's rules. I wish that grown ups could always wear costumes to Disneyland but I'm glad that we can at least to the parties.
This year we didn't want to spend a lot of money on costumes so we decided to put them together ourselves and dressed like Anita and Roger from 101 Dalmatians. A lot more people realized who we were than I thought would so I think we did pretty good!
When we walked in, it seemed uncrowded except for a really, really long line that lead to Maleficent! I had never seen Maleficent outside of Fantasmic so it was a fun character to see.
