I'm so afraid to go on Splash now, after getting soaked last November! I wish it just kind of splashed you, and not drenched you if you sit in the front.

Isn't the Boo to You parade so cute? I really love the music! Can't wait to hear what happened!

I think if it were up to Tim we would have waited...he did last year during the Christmas party, the picture was really cute, but alas I am impatient

Glad you found a good parade spot! The music in the parade is so catchy! I sing it like the whole month of October.. "boo to you and boo to you..." I could keep going!!

WAAAAITTT, I need to know what the peculiar thing was!
I had to ride behind people later on and I wasn't as excited on Space Mtn!!

as soon as I read that I started singing it again!!

Sorry I neglected to follow up quickly like I planned

I know exactly what you mean about the front row on Splash too...

I'm glad you enjoyed the parade... can't wait to find out what happened!
I bet the back seat on Space is good too..because you arent pulling anyone behind you

Splash has always been my all time favorite, but getting that wet wasn't very fun

I agree, I like Splash Mtn, but I always sit in the back because I hate getting wet.

Happy to see you both enjoyed the parade. The music is very catchy! I love how the Headless Horseman comes out so much earlier than the rest of the parade.


Can't wait to see what peculiar thing happened!
The Headless Horseman was SO cool, I am so impressed how they do that!!

We decided after this trip during Halloween and Christmas time the only way to tour MK without lines is a party...too bad its an extra ticket!!

I felt so bad that I said it just splashed you and we ended up soaked...even more mad I did my hair and it was ruined

It was SO cute!!

Back to the parade...we were dancing along to "Boo to you" enjoying the different floats...we loved the Hauned Mansion ghosts and villains

Just as Goofy's candy truck was coming from off stage (what I believe is the last float)...the parade well...just stopped abruptly

We kept hearing the same music loop over and over again...then we noticed villains from several floats gone by were walking back towards us, waving and heading off stage. As well there were non costumed cast members heading on stage down the parade route past us

The non costumed cast members tried to distract the crowd with clapping and singing to the music...but there was obviously something unusual happening!

Without any true ending to the parade...the floats were moved back off stage and cast members informed us the parade was over. We later found out the brakes had gone out on one of the floats and some costumed cast members had to jump off their float and walk back past us (hence the villains coming past us) This is the first time either of us have ever heard of something like this happening during a parade...it was really random!!

Since we pretty much saw 99% of the parade we did not return to the see the second parade later in the evening...we still really enjoyed it as well!!

Once all that excitement was over we headed over (still soaked) to Pirates!!!

I thought this was a pretty cool picture spot



After our fun ride visiting pirates...we headed to the hub area to check out the Villain's Mix and Mingle show...we ended up getting a spot very close to the stage. It was a good spot, plus we were first in line to meet one of the villains!!





The show was honestly one of our favorite stage shows...the music was so catchy we were both sort of dancing along to it...it was very cool!! After the show the villains come down very briefly to do a meet and greet..I snapped some shots





Which villain did we happen to meet from the show?!?

I have always wanted to do the villian show and we always missed it. I wish we had done it at least once out of our two visits. Can't wait to hear which villian you get to meet.

Love the pic of you and Tim in front of Pirates.

That's so strange that the parade just stopped like that! At least you got to see most of it!

I love that picture in front of the Pirates sign!

The Villains show was so cute, I'm glad we stopped to watch it, but it seemed kind of short, didn't it?

Talk about a memorable ending to the parade. At least you were able to see pretty much all of the parade.

The Villains show looked very cool, wish I had stopped to watch it.

The parade stopped? Wow! I've never heard of anything like that! I'm glad everyone was okay, though!

You got some good villian pictures!! Can't wait to see who you got up close and personal with!

Wow... that's an odd way to end a parade.

I guess you can look at it as you got some "bonus" villain time when they came back by.

Cool! Villains! Never seen that show, so it looks pretty interesting. And that is a weird way to end a parade. What amazes me is that they seem to have a contingency plan for everything, and act like it's all part of the show!

Wow what a bizarre thing to happen during the parade! I can't believe that the brakes went on one of the floats however it means you guys had a unique viewing of the parade that no one else will get to see!

Love the POTC pic

Yay on getting such a good spot for the Villains Mix and Mingle show and getting the snaps afterwards. We never got to meet any of the villains because of rain but am looking forward to seeing who it was you met.

Wow so weird about the parade...I was afraid you were going to say, "The brakes went out on one of the floats and ran over one of the CM's!" Thank goodness that didn't happen.

I can't believe how soaked you guys got! Even after watching the parade, you'd think you'd air out by then!

Love the pic of you and Tim in front of Pirates.
It was fun to see all the different villians since they aren't out in the parks as much as all the other characters

The best part is we were stuck in the middle of a large crowd when the parade stopped..so we didn't know what to do

It was short...I was just getting into the music and embarassing Tim with my dance moves and it was over

Tim thought it was great, because he had never heard of that happening, but at least we got to see the whole parade pretty much!!

I think the CMs handled it so well that most people didn't even really realize anything happened...but it was odd!!

They did stop and shake hands and spend some time with the crowd on their way back, so that was nice

It was great, not one CM looked worried or confused...they just smiled and clapped to the music which kept playing...I'd probably be the one CM to give away the problem by accident

That was exactly how Tim thought of it, I think he felt special that something random like that happened when we were watching

I just picked the open spot in front of the stage and I think we lucked out with a great villian

Oh no, nothing bad like that!! I don't think any damage or injuries occured...just a long pause in the parade

I know...my poor hair was ruined for the rest of the night, of course thats what I cared about!!
