What a great shot! Merida's expression is hilarious!

Good try though. I'm sure Dale was almost as interested...

Yes... So much so that I'm going to see if I can find or make a template to copy that cool pumpkin on the left.

Yeah, that'd be me. Nope. That is definitely not my favorite ride.

Hah! She's still just a little kid at heart. I guarantee you she'll still love it. And thanks for the pics, they're my first view of the new areas. (Got a kick out of the water coming out of the elephant's trunk.)

I loved Hallowishes. I liked them even more then Wishes.

Best part of the parade, really sets the tone. So hard to get a good picture of though.

Love those costumes. I tried to match them when we went down but couldn't find anything white to distress, so I wore black instead. Didn't quite have the same effect, though.

Nah. Not possible for you to have a bad picture. Just ask Dale.

Isn't that just the best? We had so much fun when we went a few years ago. I just know that I'll have to do it again some day. Thanks for the chapter!

Thanks we did!
I hope you make it there for the party sometime!
When I heard they were working on the circus area I was kind of skeptical but it is adorable!

It was. We wanted to just enjoy the party without having a "plan". We decided ahead of time if we caught the parade and Hallowishes anything else would just be the icing on the cake


I love the circus area at night - I think that Dumbo all lit up is just gorgeous. I love the colors they used.
Me too!

Someday I've got to get to MNSSHP and see that parade as well!
I hope you get there for Halloween sometime!

MNSSHP is the best!! Your costumes are cute
She was so fun! The photographer told her to look scared since I was Doofensmirtz and told me to look scary. She was so funny though, I just kept laughing.
Thanks!

Oh yeah he's a big Flynn Ryder fan

Well... of course he's worthy... he got you didn't he?

Awwww, you're so sweet

Yes... So much so that I'm going to see if I can find or make a template to copy that cool pumpkin on the left.

If you carve a pumpkin like that you must post the pic! I want to see!

Poor Dale.

He is a good sport and humors me .

Yeah, that'd be me. Nope. That is definitely not my favorite ride.

Hah! She's still just a little kid at heart. I guarantee you she'll still love it. And thanks for the pics, they're my first view of the new areas. (Got a kick out of the water coming out of the elephant's trunk.)

Yes she is. She never did make it over there though. Something else new for next time I guess. I'm glad we could sho you something new!

I can see how you'd be terrified considering Dale hit the center of the target with the arrow earlier. Lucky for you, I see he missed.

Good point!

You go guys!

I'm sure we looked like silly old people but we had fun!

Again... I'm sure Dale had the same considerations.

As I said before he humors me

I loved Hallowishes. I liked them even more then Wishes.

Me too!

How perfect is that? That must've been a blast!

It was! They spent a lot of time with us and made a big fuss over our costumes.

Best part of the parade, really sets the tone. So hard to get a good picture of though.

It is! He goes by so fast!

Love those costumes. I tried to match them when we went down but couldn't find anything white to distress, so I wore black instead. Didn't quite have the same effect, though.

I bet you looked great!

Nah. Not possible for you to have a bad picture. Just ask Dale.

I hate having my picture taken so there are very few I actually like!

Isn't that just the best? We had so much fun when we went a few years ago. I just know that I'll have to do it again some day. Thanks for the chapter!
Yes it is! I hope you make it there again! Thanks for reading!

Caught up, except for pictures. Sounds like you had a great time at the Halloween party this year and your costumes sound so fun. I will admit that I actually had fun dressing up this year. I'm never creative enough to think of a costume, so I owe it all to Cynthia. Can't wait to see your costumes.

Your baseball evening sounds fun, although a little disappointing that you had to return the next day. Still, a small price to pay for witnessing such a big win.

And look at you girls - actually making money at the penny slots. Too funny.

June? When are you guys going in June?

Be back to see pictures.

I can't wait to see your costumes! I think it's fun dressing up IF you can come up with something that won't be too hot and uncomfortable or too expensive. I actually preferred our group costume for the second party

Your baseball evening sounds fun, although a little disappointing that you had to return the next day. Still, a small price to pay for witnessing such a big win.

It was a really memorable experience and we had a blast! I just wish the World Series had gone differently!

And look at you girls - actually making money at the penny slots. Too funny.

Uep we are high rollers

June? When are you guys going in June?

Be back to see pictures.
Andrew gets 2 weeks leave sometime in June. We aren't exactly sure of the dates yet. Are you going with your brother then?

Really enjoyed reading your update about MNSSHP! The party is totally on my Disney bucket list. Loved your costumes! Glad that some of the characters appreciated them too.

What great interactions you had with characters that night.

Hallowishes and the parade both sound like they were awesome!

I love the beautiful pictures of Merida's tapestries! I totally see what you mean!

Thank you! We have been lucky enough to attend MNSSHP, MVMCP and the old Pirate and Princess Party and they are all wonderful! If you ever get the chance, go!

What great interactions you had with characters that night.
We had a lot of fun with the characters. Sometimes the characters aren't as fun when it's just adults but we got lucky that night!

Hallowishes and the parade both sound like they were awesome!
They really are

I love the beautiful pictures of Merida's tapestries! I totally see what you mean!
Her area is so cute and so fitting for her!

June 8 to the 15th are the dates. We are definitely going. I bought vouchers for the PAPs, so we will activate them then. I will keep my fingers crossed that our dates finally overlap, even if its just by a day.
