    Mary Ellen, you got some really great photos of the castle and fireworks. I take my hat off to you! :rotfl2: (Sorry couldn't help it. ;))
    I really know about "those" people. If you ever get to DLRP try to find a space where there are NO kids in front of you. People will put them on their shoulders and block your view completely. :sad2:

    And I can so relate to taking too many pics. No matter how often I have seen those fireworks I "have to" take pics. ;) I guess we have a gazillion of them. You HM pics are great and even though I just had dinner, that taco salad looks delish! :thumbsup2

    :rotfl2: Haha!!!!! Good one!!!!!! I'm glad you like the pics!

    I would hate the kid on the shoulders thing. That would definitely be distracting. I really don't think she was trying to be distracting and I probably could have moved a little to one direction or another, but I honestly didn't notice how bad it was until I downloaded the photos. :sad2:


    I took obsessive amounts of pictures. It was crazy. It was like I put my camera on a multiple setting and just kept hitting the button. There are SO many more pictures that I didn't post. Heck - I could still be posting them now. :rotfl:

    Such lovely pictures! A consequence of digital cameras is snapping photos until your fingers cramp! Remember saving film for special photos?! LOL

    Thanks!

    My fingers didn't quite cramp, but it was close.

    Honestly I barely took any pictures back in the film days. Digital just opened up a whole new world for me!


    Kudos to Karin! She was right on with that one! :thumbsup2

    Thanks for the welcome Cynthia! I'm glad I finally found your TR! Enjoying reading along so far.......lots of fun going on! :goodvibes

    Wow Pat, you find a lot of TRs to hang out! And no, I'm not stalking you!!! :rolleyes1 :rotfl:

    Good to see you adding to this TR also! Some really good pictures and it looks like you ladies were having a great time. :thumbsup2

    Thanks Mary Ellen! It looks like hanging out here is going to be a lot of fun! :woohoo:

    Love the latest updates, and you had some wonderful castle and fireworks pictures! I agree that the colors in the one are very interesting! I don't think I would have even noticed your hat fetish if you hadn't mentioned it. :laughing:

    And you did a great job on some of the "dark" pictures in the HM. Even moving and low light you managed to get some very clear pictures! :cool1:

    Oh my goodness, that hat would have driven me crazy too! I mean I know it's a halloween party but people should know that in situations like this, your costume won't be ruined if you take off your hat for a few minutes. Geeeeeeze.

    Still, your fireworks/castle photos were great!

    The lady in front of the Haunted Mansion, does she have like a script? Or does she just talk to people as they pass? She looks like she'd be funny. :laughing:

    I'm glad you got good pictures of the KISS guys, they were a riot! I don't even remember that hat being there, maybe I'll see it when I do my update too :rotfl:

    I was SO bummed they didn't have the meat waffle sandwiches at dinner time, that seems a miss on their part but I did love my Taco Salad. I just remember being starving by then!

    Hi all. Not sure when I will get a chance to respond individually to the most recent posts. I am at my parents until at least tomorrow and there is no Internet here. It's just too hard to respond on my phone. My mom hurt her neck/back and won't go to ED. So frustrating. So I guess I'll edit more pics while she's sleeping. Hope everyone is having a great Sunday.

    Mary Ellen, I hope your mom feels better soon!

    I am in awe of your castle pics! I think that both the parade and fireworks at the MNSSHP are my favorites of any park parade or display and your pictures of hallowishes are awesome!

    Fantastic MNSSHP pictures! Gets me even more excited about starting the new October report and getting to relive our party again, too. No October trip for us this year. We're trading it (time/money) for December. Back to October again next year. I think our plan is to do an October, October, and December every third year pattern.

    That was great the way the Headless Horseman pictures came out. We didn't get to see him this year, because the horse had fallen earlier in the evening. He and the rider were fine, though, so we were relieved to hear that!

    Hope your mom heals quickly!

    When I saw the title, I really thought it was going to be the pink hat from EPCOT again... I'm sorry it wasn't the case. What a witch...

    They really are some awesome pictures. Even despite the hat. Just think if you'd taken that many pictures before digital cameras. You'd have to be pretty quick at reloading film in the camera. :lmao::rotfl2:

    :lmao::rotfl2::rotfl:

    Um... is that Tinkerbell with KISS???? :confused3 :lmao::rotfl2::rotfl:

    Awesome costumes!

    I don't have a whole lot of commentary for this chapter, but with or without the hat, your photography was amazing! So many fantastic shots! I'd tell you to post the other 270 but I don't want the mods to get angry with me.

    Oh yes... I would so be up for a Disney reality show...:lmao:

    So how cool is it you got recognized from the crowd? :goodvibes

    Oh I know I've said it before but I so have to go to the party... the Villains, HalloWishes, the Headless Horseman? Too cool... I love the Christmas season but the Halloween party just seems so unique......

    btw... what did Mary Ellen have in that mug?;)
