    So sorry that happened to you!

    Whew! The ticket mess could have been bad! So glad it worked out!:goodvibes

    The party looks so fun!

    The pics of Dawn with Alice are great! I love it when the characters are really into it and have conversations with you.:goodvibes

    Too bad about the lost pictures, I wonder what happened to them:confused: Oh well, the rest of the pics that you posted are so good that it makes up for ones that you lost. There were so many good character shots and that little boy dressed up as Mike W. is too cute:cutie:

    Where could the lost pics go? So sorry Vandyfan, I know you love HM. :hug:

    All of these pics are so good I don't know where to start. They really do go all out in the decorations, so pretty..flowers and pumpkins.

    I like the mickey headbands, a cute costume idea. After all, we are all mickey fans here.

    Pumpkin Donald is too fun. Elvis Stitch could have been at Erin's bday on the weekend. May have given the other Elvis a run for his money. :rotfl2:

    Glad Vandyfan escaped the Emperor Zurg!!!! What a relief !!! :laughing:

    I'm really glad I got to see fall/Halloween at Disney it was something I've always wanted to do. And when I used to go in early Sept. they weren't stretching halloween up that early.

    YES!!! I was very excited about the cheese. Ask Dawn I ate my fair share of it. I knew they used to have it at Peco Bill's but heard they had moved it to Cosmic's and then gotten rid of it totally in the 'help yourself' category. So I was VERY excited to see it there!

    I always seem to have that face on that ride :rotfl:

    Here's my pic with Matt
    [​IMG]

    It's just so wierd how it happened. I have some of the dance pictures, which I posted. And then we ran into some other characters that you will see coming up and those are gone. Along with all of the fireworks pictures. :sad2: It is very strange b/c all my pics number in order on the card and I'm missing exactly 176 pictures which are mostly the Hallowishes and just makes me sick :headache:

    Yes they are a little strange really. I'm glad we didn't decide to dress up as them. I think our outfits worked out well. And were much cheaper :cool2:

    Yea I was irritated about the ticket thing but don't really remember getting worried about it. I was getting in there......somehow :laughing:

    Thanks :goodvibes & I'm glad I got away too :lmao:

    so after we shook our bootays with donald, pluto and chip & dale, we were walking away from the ariel's grotto area (where the dance party was) and heard some obnoxious, high pitched voices come towards us.

    GUESS WHO?????

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    our new home girls.....anastasia and drizella!

    they play upbeat halloween music over the sound system during the party and they were just acting really crazy and dancing all around fantasyland.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    then this little boy walked by anastasia with a light saber. she grabbed it because she wanted to play with it and he jerked it away from her and kept walking. she goes, "WELL, I WASN'T GONNA KEEP IT!!!!!!!!" :lmao:

    [​IMG]

    THEN they notice there's some CMs near the carousel with a limbo bar and they were ALL ABOUT THAT!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    you can see erica in a couple of those pictures above....taking pictures. :sad1:

    i know erica did have a hilarious picture of the two sisters going under the limbo bar backwards with their bums up in the air. it was really funny! they were crazy - i wish i would've taken out my video camera and got some of them on tape!

    we then headed back towards the back of fantasyland and saw cindy's carriage....so pretty!

    [​IMG]

    a really cool reflection on a little pond back behind fantasyland....

    [​IMG]

    when we got to the haunted mansion i remember the line being pretty long. but they had it all lit up soooooo creepy!!!!! AWESOME!

    [​IMG]

    they also had a female ghost sitting on a bench on the front lawn heckling people while they waited in line. she was hilarious! i know erica got lots of pics of her but luckily i took some video.

    [​IMG]

    i love when she falls off the bench! :lmao:

    we didn't ride HM - we knew we'd be back on sunday!

    we did notice some photopass CMs setting up a camera near the horse carriage. we kind of hung out for a minute to see what they were doing and ended up being the first people in line for this shot......

    [​IMG]

    it's one of my favorites!

    we had asked them before they took the pictures if we needed to take off our glow bracelets. they said no, that it would actually work out really cool for the picture and asked us to swing our arms upwards for the second shot. it just sort of made a glowy trail.

    [​IMG]

    after that we headed towards adventureland just to see what was going on there, where we found a GIANT pumba and timon near the jungle cruise....

    [​IMG]

    i thought the area around POTC was really eery and creepy looking!

    [​IMG]

    at that point it was around 9:10 and the fireworks started at 9:30. so we decided to head towards the hub to get a good spot for hallowishes. we decided to set up my tripod on a trash can near the tomorrowland bridge.

    we saw santa and mrs. claus while we waited. i guess they were vacationing in florida before they got busy with christmas preparations!

    [​IMG]

    waiting for fireworks!!!!

    [​IMG]

    i love how the castle looks!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    finally.....video of the fireworks! i'm so sad that erica lost her pictures and i feel so bad for her because i know how disappointed she is. at least we have the video though. enjoy!!!!!! (by the way, sorry for the reflection of my living room in some of this video! as usual, i taped the video playing on my TV with my digital camera and there are some parts where the castle gets really dark and you can see the reflection of my living room. i didn't realize it until after i uploaded the video.)

    i LOVED these fireworks! they were awesome. the music was great and i think the lighting effects on the castle are really cool too. my favorite part is when jafar comes out - i love the music and the shape of his "sorcerory in the sky" fireworks!

    up next.......BOO TO YOU!!!! :hmghost:

    I loved it all! It just adds a whole new atmosphere to Magic Kingdom.

    The black and orange balloons, the colors on the castle, the ghost on the carriage, the cool fireworks, Boo to You parade, the music, the villains...

    It is a great experience - something every Diser should experience at least once!

    I have to wonder if the original creator of Cinderella's mean stepsisters ever thought they would be called someone's home girls?

    OMG! I LOVE that photopass pic in front of the Haunted Mansion! So cool!

    And those stepsisters are such a hoot! Have you ever done Cinderella's Royal Feast at the Grand Floridian? They're at that dinner and they are hysterical!

    funny! I also like at the end when she says "I like Captain Jack and I like Captain Morgan" :rotfl2: Maybe that's who sent you the bottle at the beginning of your trip!

    Great update, I can't wait to get home and watch the video of hallowishes!

    What a fun MNSSHP!!!

    I'm so jealous. When I went to MNSSHP last year, it POURED the entire time! Most of the special MNSSHP did not happen that night.

    It's so much fun to see pics of all the stuff I SHOULD have seen in person!

    It sounds like the stepsisters were hilarious! HOw much fun would it be to get to be them for the night?!?

    I love Anastasia and Drizella! Well, not in the movie, but at WDW-they are hilarious! We met them at 1900 Park Fare at the GF. Anastasia was making funny faces in every picture taken of her and in ours, she SCREAMED at the top of her lungs while the picture was being taken. I'll post the pic sometime if you want...but I don't want to bombard your T.R.

    Love the Halloween decorations! The PoC area looked AWESOME! And the lady outside the HM looks hilarious. Thanks so much for this T.R. I have never been there during Halloween and don't know when I ever will be.

    What a cool photopass pic, a really neat effect. Glad you spotted them and could be first in line. I like the boarders too. The video was great to watch, I like the soundtrack along with the fireworks. Good job ladies. ;)
