We're looking forward to Ariel's ride; she's DH favorite redhead, next to Reba.Looking forward to more!!
I wish I had Rebas hair!!!!
I was really excited to finally be there and see this parade after all the years of wishing I could!

Bummer! I don't think the horseman actually runs anymore. He just walked by and I know there was an accident either this year or last year where he turned a corner and the horse slipped and fell. So I am assuming he no longer runs because of that. That worked better for me so I could get a picture that wasn't a complete blurr.

After the parade, I believe we headed over near the jungle cruise and hit the jack pot of trick or treating. They had 2 lines and they were competing on how much candy each side would give the kids. The girls were happy about that.

At this point, I think Carey’s family decided to head up front and try to see the princesses, but Claire and I weren’t quite ready to leave, so we said good bye and headed off on our own.



My favorite ride is Pirates of the Caribbean, so I convinced Claire to head that way.



It looked like it was on fire with an orange glow around it.







I took some pictures on the ride, but most came out just too dark.

We did see the new mermaid additions and that was exciting to us.





We had pretty much had it after this. The lack of sleep was catching up to both of us, so we headed to the front.
This is Claire’s treat bag. My wonderful Dis friend Lisa (mickeystoontown) made one for Claire and Kadence and sent them to us right before the trip. It was a huge hit with both girls.



As we approached Main Street, we noticed it was lit up for the party as well.











We stopped for one last photopass of the night.







We continued down Main Street.



We decided we needed to check out the shops before leaving. I don’t think we end up buying anything though.













They already had a few Christmas items out too.



We headed back out.



A few more scarecrow shots





As we walked by the town hall I asked Claire if she wanted to see the princesses and she said no. I really wish I would’ve insisted on doing so. After seeing Carey’s photopass pictures, I am very jealous of the shots she got.

I tried to get a picture of the “See Ya Real Soon” pumpkins, but it didn’t turn out too great.



We had been carrying “Flat Ben” all night and just plain forgot to pull him out for a picture, so we did get one shot before leaving.



We went to the locker and retrieved our things and then back to turn in the key. We were thirsty, so we pulled out 2 pops to purchase which basically came to the same price as what the locker deposit refund was.

Out to the bus stop and our legs were starting to hurt. We did get a seat, but the bus was pretty crowded. It made a stop at Kidani first and then to Jambo where we got off. Claire was dead tired at this point. She was wishing I would either carry her, or that she would sprout wings so she could fly back to the room. Neither of those things happened!

I guess I had enough energy to take a shot of the lobby.



And then the long hallway to our room.



It did not take us long to get ready for bed and go out. It had been such a long day, but a very fun one too. We made new memories and new friends and we couldn’t have asked for better weather either.

I laid my head on the 2nd pillow of the trip so far. In 2 days I had slept in 2 different spots. “Oh the Places We go”.

That was a long day, but what a great time at the party! I love how the lighting gives a completely different vibe to the park. Made me mad to see the green and red Christmas ears for sale. I looked for ANY kind of Christmas ears on my trip starting on Nov 26, and they were completely sold out everywhere. Such incredibly bad planning to run out of Christmas merchandise by Thanksgiving. I asked for them everywhere and whenever I did, about 10 people around me would say, "I'm looking for those, too!" Merchandise everywhere, but not what people want.

That is really poor planning to run out of them that early. Wow!

I love all the night-time lighting effects at the party. Reading this is getting me so excited that we're going back for the Halloween Party (hopefully!) for the first time in five years!

what a long and tiring day, but still sounds like lots of fun. I love the lightin on POTC, soo cool, like the fort is under attack. Evan LOVED the dance party (Woody, Jessie and Bullseye) too. I think watching him dance was my favorite part of the night.

I enjoyed all of your pictures of MNSSHP. Cute photopass shots in front of the castle as well! The lobby at Jambo looks lovely and quiet. Looking forward to more.
