Awwwww! I know what you mean. There's a lot at the MK that can make me misty at the drop of a hat, too!

I don't even try to take pics in it anymore as it is so dark but now you have inspired me!
They are creepy, aren't they? I feel pretty lucky that I was able to get those pics.

Me, inspire you? I'll take that as a compliment. Thanks!

I haven't met a DISer who doesn't think they are creepy? Very unique, but definitely creepy!

It sure is. Plus I want to do a combined HHI/do-over Disney trip. The HHI portion will be short, but I still want to write about it.

Somebody moves them around on purpose. I am convinced! Just to add to the creepiness!

I bet it did. I can just imagine that! Yikes! No thanks!

I am surprised you haven't seen it yet. Definitely put that on the top of your bucket list. Personally, I think its a really cute parade. I like it!

That's too funny that you won't ride at night. It is definitely creepier and I guess it is creepy going for dark to dark in stead of dark to light. I would like to ride it on Halloween someday. I bet its really creepy then.

That's my thought exactly. Definitely not worth it to ride alone, but it would be fun to see the excitement of a little kid.

I think you are right Pam! I have to admit - I was pretty freaked out to see Todd (or is that Paul) out that night.

Good for you for going solo. I did it once and it was a lot of fun, but it was definitely not easy to get those things to spin.

Good to no that it might be an exercise in frustrating. That definitely helps take it OFF my bucket list.

I took my pictures because like most "twins" they are not identical. However it is hard when you only see one to figure out which "one" it is.










Paul is indeed Pale Paul... I just find the feet creepy.

I guess the feet are pretty creepy. I don't like the arms because I envision them wrapping around a small child sitting in one of those chairs.

I really need to categorize my pictures. Took me a while to figure out where when I took them.

I have to make a alliteration reminder to help me. Either that or color code.

EWWWW the arms, every child I see sitting just sits on the edge just so they can get away fast if need be.

I always thought they were flower petals and the face was the center.

Please, please, I beg you to move on from the creepy chair discussion! I fear that I will never be able to stay at Boardwalk and I really want to! Now that last set of comments made it even worse!

Ahh, those HM pics are creeping me out! (I scare easily, what can I say? ) They're great!

Looks like you got a really nice MK mix on your last night! How perfect.
