Our next stop after the parade was in front of the castle for our viewing of the special Halloween fireworks show. We found a spot, crammed in with the masses of people around the hub. Of course, we had to do this super early, and had to stand there waiting for quite a long time. But this was worth the wait. The fireworks were outstanding, and I enjoyed watching them choreographed to the Halloween soundtrack. The Nightmare Before Christmas is one of my all-time favorite soundtracks, so I enjoyed hearing this great music! After the show, we snuck to the left of the castle and soon found ourselves at the Magic Carpets of Aladdin. There was no wait for it, so we figured why not? Soon we were on board, ready to fly, and sing A Whole New World for all of Agrabah to hear! Classic Gunkle pose: Lets ROCK these carpets! Thinking magical princess songs: Soon, we were flying. Remember I told you earlier, that Bryan LIVED for meeting characters? What I didnt mention ,was that Aladdin is his ULTIMATE favorite movie. Jasmine and Aladdin are precious to him!! So as we were circling around, we came upon the shop in the back of that area, where the Aladdin and Jasmine meet n greet takes place. But Aladdin and Jasmine were no there. No Aladdin was there WITH ABU! What?! That is so rare! Bryan starts freaking out! Get me off this carpet! I wanna go see Aladdin and ABU!!!! It was the longest ride ever. But as soon as we got off, we ran over to the line. As soon as we got in the pretty short line, the lady in front of us, who heard how BEYOND excited we were, said, They are leaving in a few minutes. OH NO! Sadness sadness. Well, maybe we will just make it! I grabbed a picture from the line, just to capture this special duo: Sure enough, five minutes later, when we were a mere 3 or 4 families away from meeting them, out came Genie and Jasmine to take their place. This lucky family got to meet ALL FOUR OF THEM! Bryan was DYING! Realizing his opportunity was slipping away, Bryan actually stopped them on their way backstage and said, Can I PLEASE just grab a picture with you both?! They happily said yes, and Bryan quickly snapped a picture and said, THANK YOU SO MUCH! He was so glad he at least got a picture. ... Or did he? ... You know when you take a picture with a digital camera, and there is that lag of time between when you press the button and when the camera actually records the image? Yeah . In his anxiety-ridden request to take this picture, Bryan forgot all about that, and lowered the camera just as it was recording the image. So THIS it the picture of Aladdin and Abu that he captured: HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!! Oh my goodness, he was SOOOOO bummed! Of course, we were able to laugh about it later, but at the time, he was so upset! He pulled himself together quickly to get a nice shot with Genie and Jasmine. Bryan loved her outfit! So the picture of the feet became the most-retold story of the entire trip. And now YOU are in on the joke. See? Arent you glad you decided to read along? We didnt last long this evening. The crowds just sucked all of the energy from me. We decided to head home early and get ready for a fun day at Hollywood Studios. You know, the park with the American Idol Experience?! A group of singers going to the park with the American Idol Experience?! Will one of us end up on the stage?! Youll just have to see!!
