I have a pink wig because I saw the movie Lost in Translation & the main girl wore one. I thought it was cute.

I have a choice to make, either the party or the Sunrise Safari.

Well, that's as good enough reason as any. Cool, actually!

Wow - now that's going to be a toughie. I would vote for party, but I think you guys will probably go with the Safari and I don't blame you one bit.

Great updates! Love the costumes! Adorable! How cool Cynthia came up with a idea for all 3 of you to do together.

Love the Parade and Party pics! Seeing the ones you, Jen and Carey are posting in the TR's makes me more and more convinced that I really need to go to the Halloween party. I am determined to go next fall so I will just have to make sure the dates fit with the party.

Your costumes are ADORABLE!
I love it and now you make me want to go back and dress up better!
I love that parade. You got a ton of great pictures too. And just so you know, the cowboys are just eyecandy for us ladies. We need a little fun too, right!

The meet and greet looks so fun. Poor Sheree is hidden in almost all the pictures!

Oh my goodness, your costumes were too cute! I love that idea.

Love your parade pictures! I would love to see that in person. I have to wonder about Peter Pan's knees, though... either that's a random sweaty area for him or he fell knee-first into a puddle!

In DLR, they still have that ride. It is a bit of a challenge when you have a young child though... since everyone trying to coordinate their paddling can be a tad frustrating.

I love the party updates! Your costumes for the party were too cute!
I hate it when transportation doesn’t work out. Glad you at least got a good spot for the parade. And I am super jealous! One of the things I was most looking forward to at MNSSHP was the headless horseman. Alas... rain caused him to be a no show. However... that parade is my FAVORITE!!! I can’t wait to see it again! I am with you on the confusion about the cowboys. What do they have to do with Halloween?

Hey there

Love your costumes - cutest blonde duckies I've ever seen

I love that parade - we were lucky enough to go to the party back in 2010 and the parade was worth it alone, along with the fireworks. We ended up going on a 2nd night as there was so much to do. My wallpaper is the family pic with all the seven dwarves - total highlight.

Also - I spy Big Al - I just love him. I have 2 cuddly Big Al's from previous trips. My pride and joy - my cuddly Sully comes a close second though. I think I have a thing for big hairy beasts

No pictures of my friend as the haunted bride. When I asked her about it, she said that her trip was cut short and she had to miss the party. Major bummer!

What a fantastic job on those costumes!! Such a cute idea.

And great pictures of the parade, MEK. It's getting me SO excited for our upcoming October trip. We are going to the party this year! My first MNSSHP, I can't wait! I'm excited to see the rest of your party pics...because I know you have a LOT more to share!!!

What cute costumes! Love 'em! The first thing I thought of when I saw Cynthia is she looks like Charlene Darling from the Andy Griffith Show. See:



Every time I read a trip report that includes one of the holiday parades and decorations, I am jealous. Yep, pure jealousy oozes from my pores. I want to go so badly!

I loved your costumes! Kudos to Cynthia for the idea and putting them together.

It looked like a lot of people went in-costume. Those people at the dock, dressed as ghosts, were awesome!

She did a good job coming up with that costume, didn't she? It was a lot of fun!

Well you have most of September, all of October, and maybe a few days in November. I'm not sure about that last part. It really is a great party. If you can figure out a way to do it, I say go for all it. You will not regret it!

The cowboys are eye candy? For eye candy I want a topless cowboy. Dressing up was a lot of fun! I'm glad we did it. I would definitely dress up again in something that is easy to wear like that.

We had a lot of fun meeting one another. We did seem to have a lot of trouble getting ourselves lined up, so I'm not really surprised that someone got buried. I didn't know whether to stand in front or in the back and then the girls grabbed my hands and the decision was made.

You can thank Cynthia for that. She did a great job master-minding the costume! It was comfortable except when the wig got a little itchy.

I absolutely love that parade. I think everyone needs to see it at least once. Really, really cute.

Too funny that you noticed that about Peter Pan. I totally missed that!

I totally remember you writing about that now. And I remember how frustrated poor Zoe was getting.

Jen says that are the entertainment for the girls watching the parade, but I still don't get it!

We really should have left a little earlier for the party, but we were honestly hoping we'd get on the first boat over there. Of course, we had to wait for a third boat. Bad planning on our part.

Bummer you missed the headless horseman. That stinks. As you can see, I honestly barely saw him. He comes through so freakin' fast. I think you really need to be on a corner to see him come through,

I still have so much respect for you both to get up and exercise at Disney. You go girls!

PARTY!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!

Omg I LOVE your costumes! So cute!
Some of those other party guests had great costumes too! I admit to not dressing up when I've gone, but I do love when others get right into it.
YAY for scoring a great parade spot!
