This year we headed to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party dressed as Haunted Mansion Ghost Hosts!!! I didn’t think it was possible, but we just might have had more fun this year than in the two previous years!!!
You can enter the park with a party ticket as early as 4pm, even though the party doesn’t start until 7. Since we have passes, we went in at 3. I’m not sure how this happened, but we also ended up with FOUR fast passes before 7pm. We were able to ride Space Mountain, Thunder Mountain, Mine Train AND Haunted Mansion all before the party started. We also gathered up some of our fave snacks and convened in Gaston’s Tavern to refuel. I chose the pot roast mac and cheese from Friar’s Nook (my very fave), Honey picked a cinnamon roll and John a turkey leg from Gaston’s, and the baby went with popcorn.
Our next stop was Memento Mori for our big souvenir from this trip… Dressed in our Ghost Host finest, we entered the secret room where you have spooktacular portraits made. Look closely at the toile wallpaper. Isn’t it divine?!?!?
Afterwards, we waited by the old armoire for a mysterious bell to ring. Our Ghost Host opened the drawer to find our portraits inside. We were completely WOWed!!!! You can see them hanging in our house here.
We took a few minutes to paint our faces and then headed to Haunted Mansion right at 7 to see all of the cast members dressed up. They had so much fun with us and nearly all of them said something! I loved that one of the dogs in the pet cemetery matches the two on my front porch.
And then we were hungry again so we staked out some prime curb real estate on Main Street and ate Casey’s while we waited for the Boo to You parade! It was spectacular, as usual.
Our bottoms were kind of hurting from sitting at this point, so we moved over to one of the new grassy parks for Hallowishes. We got right up on the fence and were able to spread out and relax for a bit. Honey and I even stargazed. It was pretty magical to be in my favorite park at night and spend time just doing nothing.
At this point the park started to clear a bit so we hit the rides heavy! We literally did everything we wanted to! Space Mountain, Monsters Inc, Stitch, Buzz, Tomorrowland Speedway, Thunder Mountain, you name it! And we popped through the trick or treat stations on our way from place to place, all four of us loading up bags of candy. We even met Jafar again this year with zero wait!
We exited the park just as the clock struck midnight. We were “dead” tired but so very pleased with our memorable night!!!
