Hitchhiking Ghosts and an Extra Splashy Mountain
We head back to Disneyland Park this morning, this time with the plan of jogging over to get some Haunted Mansion FastPasses. We are learning the differences between here and DisneyWorld pretty quickly. We spot Chip and Dale in adorable bobby police outfits. Goofy was dressed for Halloween in a skeleton costume. I went to the top of the railroad station and got some photos of the classic transportation vehicles. I love the horse drawn trolley – it looks like it’s floating. Chris was awesome and went running for the fastpasses while I meandered over getting photos. Seeing the Nightmare Before Christmas version was my single must-do for this trip.…
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party
My most favoritest reason for being here finally arrives! Magic Kingdom in FULL HALLOWEEN GLORY. Despite a strongly afflicting phobia of certain things with 8 legs (to the point where not only is the technical term for them absolutely too much, but even the common s****r term is generally avoided) Halloween continues to be my #1 holiday.

Seriously – I had to speed read/half skip *that* part of Harry Potter…
Thundering and Splashing In the Magic Kingdom
Now it’s time to ride! We have a Fastpass so make our way over to the other side of the park. On the way out of lunch, I spot this balloon, and boy was I tempted to get one of my own. We didn’t have time to stop to talk with Belle, but I love the sign. The windmill moves the gears which makes the candlestick ‘arms’ dance. Rapunzel’s tower is still beautiful. I managed to come around in time to catch the Liberty Belle and the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad lined up. Speaking of BTMRR – that’s our Fastpass destination! I grab an awkward shot from the ride before…
