2008 pictures from Big Thunder:



Jack Skellington and Sally who are only out during Halloween Time:



This year there was a photo spot set up on the small court like area near Haunted Mansion and the line was controlled by some CMs in Haunted Mansion costume.

And of course Haunted Mansion Holiday:







Characters in costume:

2009:







2008:









I think the Candy Corn Acres attires count too, we never saw these when Halloween was over:













2008:













EDIT: For some reason the 2008 pictures appear pretty big on here... sorry for that, I am working on it!

Awesome photos, Diznygrl - and great additions to this thread (the little Superthread that could!!)!! Thanks so much for posting them and giving this thread a little boost. We need more Halloween-y goodness from everyone!!

I LOVE those carved pumpkins - so clever and artfully done. I know if my clumsy hands tried to do that kind of work on a pumpkin, it would turn out all kinds of messed up!!

I also love that mug - and even though I think I bought that mug (or a very similar one) at DLR in 2008, if I hadn't bought it in a shop, I would get the pumpkin mousse/carrot cake thingy just to get that mug!! I don't even like carrot cake, but I would get it for that mug!

Amazing photos, Vala (as always!!)!!! You always look like you are having such a blast when you are at DLR. I thank you, especially, for including all the photos of the characters in their Halloween garb in this thread!! Just as Diznygrl gave us a fantastic representation of the carved character pumpkins at DLR, you really showed us the best example of what the characters look like when dressed up in their seasonal garb, which is important to include in our Halloween Superthread. I cannot express how much I LOOOOOOOOVE me some Donald in that pumpkin outift - that is so adorable, I can't stand it!!

Again, thanks for contributing - this thread needed a kick, and you and Diznygrl came through!!

Oh, don't worry too much about the size of the photos! I am guilty of that too, clearly - I loaded many pictures onto Photobucket ages ago and neglected to change the size/dimension settings before I did, so they came out gigantic (it takes too long on Photobucket to edit each one individually and change the size). When I finally remembered to fix the size before I uploaded other photos, everything was fine and the photos were a normal size. I, personally, like to look at the really big photos, but I know it doesn't always work well on certain monitors and some of the photos get cut off, or the pages load very slowly.

Those are great photos and looks like so much fun!! We hope to go back to DLR during the last week of September this year (hopefully the first weekend of Halloween Time)! Quick questions for everyone...does anyone know if Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs are around for photo ops (like at WDW MNSSHP)? It looked like Vala got to meet Snow White and Dopey. Or is Dopey the only Dwarf around during this time? (I'd be happy with just Dopey becuase DS LOVES Dopey). And if it's just Dopey, is he only around during TOTP, or is he around during the day throughout Halloween Time?

I've been sick for a couple of days, today was the first day I had enough energy to come and have a close look on the forum. Otherwise I would have posted something earlier.

This was the first year I ever saw a dwarf out (with the exception of the Parade of Dreams), and I've been going since 2006 for Halloween time.

Last year was the first year they had this Snow White photo op from what I heard. It probably was for the anniversary, so I am not sure if it will be back. It seemed popular, so I am hoping they will keep it.

Dopey was the only dwarf around that we saw last year. The backdrop in my picture was still up throughout the day too for a couple of days after Halloween, so I'd think it will probably be up (if it is back) during Halloween Time too. We've seen Dopey there quite often throughout the day, sometimes with Snow White and sometimes solo.

Hehe, you're welcome, Sherry. I thought I had to do SOMETHING to help this poor little thread.

The pumpkin carvings are actually my favorite part of HalloweenTime. I love how they're always working on new ones, and you can stop by at multiple times during your trip and see a new pumpkin on display. Of course sometimes they leave some of them out too long...last year I saw Lumiere and the rose from Beauty and the Beast that had seen better days...they were moldy with flies buzzing around them. The Caterpillar is absolutely my most favorite 'carving' out of all that I've seen. I just love it!

The mug isn't really a full sized mug, unfortunately. It could probably fit about three or four swigs of liquid in it. After you're done with the cake, the mug is mostly for decorative purposes, I'm afraid. But determined to put it to some kind of use when I got home, I put candy corn in it.

Oh, now see, that mug looks larger in the photo to me than I guess it is in real life!! Oh well, I would still force myself to eat carrot cake to get it if I wanted it! And it has to be used for something once it is cleaned up, so candy or maybe as a votive candle holder would be great ideas!!

I would bet that a lot of people don't think those pumpkins are real. They look SO skillfully carved that it almost appears as if they are prop/fake pumpkins, just for decoration. So the fact that you found some that had seen better days and had flies buzzing around is strangely refreshing to me, because I know they were freshly carved and real!!

Well, I may have to start taking photos of some Halloweentime merchandise I bought at DLR just to post something and keep this thread going. I am still hoping someone posts some good photos of the TOTP from last year!!

Well, until I can get my Halloweentime merchandise photos taken, I will throw in a few more from the exterior of Haunted Mansion Holiday just to keep things rolling along…

I am trying to figure out how to add photos just for this thread. My little way of giving back for all the great advice I've pilfered from the DIS the last 2 years.

OK, so I've got the photos in Photobucket ... now what? I can put a link in here but not the actual photo.

Okay...somewhere underneath or next to each photo you will see a series of 4 codes. Look for the "IMG" code (usually the last one). Click on it to highlight, then copy (Ctrl C) and paste (Ctrl V) it over here directly in the post. Don't leave out any part of the code, just copy and paste the entire thing once it's highlighted.

I think I figured this out (sort of):


I loved the Mickey pumpkins everywhere!






At the entrance to California Adventure:


Candy Corn Acres (note Heimlich peeking out of the giant candy corn)


Being from Arizona, we were particularly fond of the candy corn cactuses (cacti?)


I could have stood at the window of Marceline's (in DTD) watching them make Mickey apples all day!


Sorry the pix are so big ... I'm still learning how to do this.

Excellent, PHXscuba - you mastered Photobucket (and you see my photos were super-large before it occurred to me to change the size prior to uploading them, so it is a common thing to do!) and came through with photos, all for the sake of our little Halloween Superthread in the making!!! I especially love the ones of the pumpkins above the turnstiles at DL - we needed those to be seen in this thread! For some reason, I can never manage to get any photos of those. When I have tried during the daytime, there are too many people everywhere, pushing and knocking me to try to get past. At night, forget about it. I have not figured out the settings on my camera well enough to know how to take a good nighttime shot, and my friend tried to get those pumpkins at night and all we saw was a big blur!! I keep telling myself that, one of these days during Halloweentime, I am going to get on the DLR property super early and walk around to take photos of that stuff at the entry before anyone else arrives!!

I reduced my photos to 4x6 in Picasa before I uploaded them, but maybe I need to export them smaller. Oh well, I like seeing the details. I have some other photos, but they have my kids in them and I'm not nuts about putting photos of them up publicly. That is the back of us you see in the foreground of the Golden Gate bridge shot.

If there's anything in particular someone wants to see a picture of that I have, I'll post it with the kids' faces blurred. But that's a lot of work to do it in 10 more shots!

Speaking of the entrance pumpkins, I tried to take a photo of it lit up at night but it came out blurry...however, I caught a ghost in the left hand corner! Oooh, it really IS Halloween!


Here's a Donald and Daisy display at World of Disney. I just love it when I see Daisy somewhere, it's so rare!


Oddly enough, I didn't take very many pictures at Mickey's ToT Party. I did get a couple from the Trick or Treat on the Street calvacade though.

Witchy dancers.
