Great pictures! You have such an eye for the details! I'm so busy focusing on all the large stuff, that I miss the tiny things, like those mini pumpkins on top of the Crystal Arcade! So cute!
The Spooky Shack is at the Big Thunder Ranch. It was neat to go to the Halloween Round-Up and see all those carved pumpkins around the area. The Spooky Shack is right on the left side of BTR BBQ.

Thank you Allison.

Now its time to get back to the TR


Day 1 – September 24, 2011 – Part 2

Now its time to get some pictures from the non-swinging gondola on MFW. As for the followers who follow my TR, I always like to get pictures from MFW. Some of Cars Land was updated a few weeks ago when I was at the DLR during the D23 Expo. I just can't wait to see how the construction is progressing in November during my Holiday trip.

















































That's the pics from MFW and I will get back to the TR another time

Cadillac Range looks just like the movie and taking shape one day after another.

Thank you TK


Day 1 – September 24, 2011 – Part 3

After getting off MFW, I decided to head on over to the construction area of BVS. This is my only chance to see the construction what it looks like. I also wanted to see the top part of the Carthay Circle Theater which is something I missed on my last trip. I head on out of PP and on over to the Golden State land where I will head on over to BVS.







While CS was closed, I saw that they were painting the launcher by the lagoon.








On the way out of PP, I got to see Duffy at his meet and greet area while there weren’t too many people that afternoon.


The park didn’t seem that busy that afternoon, which it would be later during the day. It almost felt like that afternoon that it was about to rain and I would get soaked. But I know when I looked at the weather report that it would be nice that day.






When I past the Blue Sky Cellar, I remember that they updated the BSC so I decided to head on in there before I head on over to BVS.






Before I went in I got a picture of Cars Land and the nice rockwork of Cadillac Range


On the way inside the BSC, they had the Walt Disney statue model that was at the D23 Expo last month. It was nice to see it up close after seeing it far away during the BVS presentation.






I watch the BVS preview which was all about BVS and the CMs that made it a reality.

After watching the BVS preview, I head on out of the BSC and towards the construction area of BVS.


I got over to BVS and see the Carthay Circle Theater sill under construction. But it was nice to see the top of the theater and I just can’t wait to see it finished next year.




Then I head on through the construction walls and on over to Hollywood Pictures Backlot.

Former Engine Ear Toys store also the Zephyr is now gone


Former Greetings from California store now looks completely different




That’s it for this post and I will get back to everyone tomorrow.

Thank you TK. The Walt Disney and Mickey statue will be in DCA at BVS. Unlike the Partners statue at DL MS Hub which you can't touch it, but the one in DCA will be be touchable. I heard from the BVS presentation back at the D23 Expo that the statue will be right on the corner close to the fountain which will be the new Hub for DCA.

Now its time to get back to the TR and now is time to get some pics of the Halloween decorations at DL.

Day 1 – September 24, 2011 – Part 4

After leaving the walls of BVS, I was in the Hollywood Studios Backlot and just roamed around and see if I can find any Halloween decorations. Unfortunately there weren’t any Halloween decorations around the area.



While I walked down HBS I saw Woody walking down the street




I can’t believe about the accident the next day at Aladdin, it was a usual day at the front entrance that afternoon.


ToT


After leaving HBS, I head on over to ABL. It was good to walk through ABL especially seeing Francis’ Ladybug Boogie. Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree ride will incorporate the same ride technology as FLB. But when I was in there, I just walked through.


I exited ABL and it was time to head on out of the park and over to DL.


On the way out I had to get the Carthay Circle Theater tower. You can see the tower from ABL.




I had to go through Condor Flats and through Soarin to get back to the turnstile




The entrance and exit to DCA. It was weird at first to enter and exit the park from the backside of Soarin, but it was decent.




I head on out of DCA and now was time for the picture taking at DL.


Before when I went through the turnstile, I had to get some pictures of the Halloween pumpkin character heads which of course are Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Donald & Goofy. The first pictures are on the left side of the turnstile.

Pumpkin Pluto


Pumpkin Mickey


Pumpkin Goofy


Pumpkin Minnie


Pumpkin Donald


The turnstiles on the right with the Pumpkin character heads.


I went through the turnstile and it was time for the picture taking. There were quite a number of people trying to get a picture of the flower shape Mickey during the Halloween season. Even I didn’t get the engine in the picture which was the Fred Gurley pulling Holiday 5 car set also with the Lily Belle.



I had to wait awhile until it was clear to take a picture without any people.


It was already 12:15pm when I got in DL.




That’s it for now and I will get back to you tomorrow with more pics of the Halloween decorations.

The colors were great and it was nice to see a Halloween Mickey at the front of the MS RR station. Thank you Michele

Thank you TK. It took quite awhile to get the picture of the Halloween Mickey since so many guests wanted to take a picture of it before they enter the park.


Now its time to get back to the TR.

Day 1 – September 24, 2011 – Part 5

After taking pictures of the front of the turnstile & DLRR station with any Halloween decorations, now its time to get pictures inside MS USA.

On the way in, there were quite a number of people trying to get pictures of the characters in their Halloween costumes. I didn't get any when I entered the park, but I did get some later during the day so that will have to wait. At first MS didn't seem that busy that afternoon, but it did pick up later during the day in which some of the ride wait times were close to summertime. But that was not I was here for.





GMwML has some nice fall touches to the building


After passing GMwML, I just walked down MS and look for any Halloween decorations.

Disney Showcase store












The giant Mickey pumpkin which was nice to see, but I couldn't get a front face shot since there were a lot of people trying to get a picture of it. On both sides, but the one that was the longest was the one facing down MS towards SB castle.



After taking a picture of the Mickey Halloween pumpkin, now I am getting the pics of the pumpkins in the window, outside and through the window displays.









You can see me through the window when I was taking the picture








Some nice Halloween merchandise at the window display












That's it for this post and I will get back to you later today.

..thanks so very much!

ok~we're back! what a trip. why , oh~wow! it seem we always have
an adventure whenever we go, even after all these years.

tired, we are! why? because it was liked 100 degrees every day. really.

had problems @ atlanta again! our plane broke on the run way....
so eventually , they put us on another one, .

the crew on the new plane were very & !!! liked really

! they didn't want to give up their plane! oh,


did i mentioned we were by 10 am, every day?!


must be something in the water ...or just the way we try to have
relaxing vacations that makes stuff happens. [ or i was born under a
catalysis sign, ]

for example, @ castaway cay ....i was slowed getting to lunch &
another family sit down besides my family. i had no place to sit so my
wife motioned me to sit with another family near by. we made friends
with them & they were really good company. i told my wife ( across
the other table ) , this guy has a great wife. she asked .
well because i noticed she was very calmed even though all these
young ladies kept coming up to her husband asking him for pictures.
my wife balled me out.."don't you know who he is?! ( he had joined
in after we all started eating)...joey fatone. he & his family was
super nice. his daughter had curly hair..cute as a button, & she had
him around her little finger! she reminded me of a s. temple.

*i got out of the dog house , by asking if he would mind taking pictures
with my daughter..& wife. he was very nice about it. and that
got me a few brownie points!

i think that the thing i like about disney the most, giving families
wonderful opportunties to bond and share family times!

as you can tell, i still have heat exhaustion.

however, i got to say...your pictures and stories really makes me
want to do a halloween trip! great presentation!

Glad that you got back home safely and had a great time during your trip. I'm sorry to hear about the plane problem.

That is neat to hear that you met Joey Fatone during your trip.

Thank you. You should try to go to DL during the Halloween season next year. Not only with the Halloween decorations, but also you got to try SMGG which is an exciting ride. The waiting time that one day trip I did last week was long.
