    Okay, now some photos from the 9/28/12 fireworks show! My favorite part is that Zero flies!

    Then Jack appears...

    The rest of the fireworks show is really good. I really liked how they used the globe with the projections.

    The Cavalcade is a cute "mini-Parade". I really like the push cart pumpkin Mickey's and the characters in costume. The Cavalcade opens with Vampire Mickey.

    Then it's on to the costume show...

    Duffy even makes an appearance...

    Each of the Mickey pumpkins are followed by characters in a similiar theme. For example, the monster Mickey is followed by Sully and other monsters. The princess pumpkin is followed by Snow White, Belle, and Tiana.

    The Cavalcade ends with Mickey and friends in the Halloween attire

    So forgive me if this is silly, but what is the difference between a parade and a cavalcade...?

    I think "Budget" us exactly the right answer. Given how Team Disney Anaheim seems to be scaling back other areas of Halloween Time (though I'm not sure if they're aware that people are noticing that they're scaling back), it's no surprise that they cannot graduate the Cavalcade to actual "parade status" just yet!:rotfl2:

    The Cavalcade is a mini-parade, so basically it is just a little bit shorter than a full-scale parade (like what Boo to You is at WDW), and it probably has fewer bells and whistles than an actual parade. Not as many floats. Less of an overall production, I suppose.

    I forgot to say thank you to SueTGGR for posting those Mike W. character pumpkin pictures yesterday! Those photos were perfect examples of how the character pumpkins change from year to year and never look exactly the same. I guess the carvers have to work with what they've got, and some years they may have differently shaped or differently colored pumpkins and different accessories.

    Thank you, also, to TheZue, for the wonderful photos on the previous page - I absolutely love the last picture (with the fog), and I want that Scream Team t-shirt!

    Continued thanks to figment_jii for the awesome photos that are giving us all a great overview of the party and the season!

    Ok folks, got the bags in today. Just for reference it is about 6 days to late.

    So here's the deal, I have two 15.5" x 14" cloth bags (with no gusset) printed with below -

    While not the level my wife's boss skydived with (long story) it should hold a full bag of candy. It is someones for the cost of shipping.

    If you want them let me know.

    BTW they did get both hidden Mickeys in it :thumbsup2

    Thank you Sue for posting the photos. I hadn't heard any information if they were still doing the pumpkin carving with the new villan carnival thing so I was very excited to see your photos. I've never been at Halloween time before and that is one of the things I'm really looking forward to.

    I was a little disappointed as you were not able to get to the back where they have moved the carved pumpkins during the party. Luckily this year we were able to get passes to visit DLR the day after the party. But why would you have them closed off back there. I kind of understand they didn't want to have to keep the carnival part open during the party but the carved pumpkins are so amazing they shouldn't be locked away in the back of the round-up area. If it had been last year where we were only able to go to the party itself I would have really been sad as would the rest of my family. Just saying...not sure I like the new setup back in the round up area.
    I can't wait to see more pictures!!!

    Hi all - alright, here are the last set of photos from the trip! These are the general around Disneyland ones.

    A Jack-themed decoration in New Orleans Square:

    The HalloweenTime banner on the light post:
    [​IMG]

    And lots of pumpkins from Big Thunder Ranch. I don't know if it was because the weather was so hot last week, but more of the pumpkins this year were "etched" or painted opposed to carved. I really like the "etching" and have a feeling they last longer in the heat.

    Finally, as I was walking around Big Thunder Ranch, Mickey came out and was stopping for photos with folks. He even posed for me!

    Happy Halloween everyone!

    WOW - you took some awesome photos, what kind of camera did you use, and what kind of settings? Also, do you share your photos? I dont' think my camera will be able to take photos as good as yours.
