    Cannibals roam at MNSSHP

    Me, Sarah 31 – chief planner, lover of all things Disney
    DH, Craig, 34 – driver and foodie
    DD, Holly, 10 – loves characters and especially drawing them
    DD, Rowan, 8 – not going upside down this year!
    3 newbies -
    My mum, Shona, 50 - big kid and possible thrill junkie
    My dad, Alastair, 57 – the banker and carrier bag holder
    My sister, Mel, 29 – doesn’t do characters and slightly bemused by the 'Disney thing'

    4th October 2007

    Today was a sad day, our last full day. Rowan was feeling much better which was good. Mum, dad and Mel headed to Perkins and then had a pretty quite day, packing etc. I do believe a snooze was had too! The four of us went shopping and came back with tons of bags thanks to the sale in JC Penney. We were very excited about our big night out at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. I made sure everyone had their cannibal costumes on and did some face painting for those that wanted it. Our costumes were hand made. I had bought the fabric off of Ebay and mum had helped me cut and sew them. We had great fun and loads of laughs doing it. We also made headbands and sewed feathers and ‘voodoo’ dolls onto them. Necklaces were made of string with large voodoo dolls and some had white cardboard teeth. The shrunken heads were a huge success and wee using balloons and papier mache with the help of Holly and Rowan. The hair was black wool and the faces were given the look that their eyes and mouths were stitched up. We were very proud of them!

    We had a big surprise for mum and dad. As they had footed the cost of the holiday as a treat for us all my sister, Craig and I had arranged for a stretch limo to take us to the party. First up the limo drivers face was a picture when he saw me coming towards him. This was not quite a funny as my mum and dads faces when they saw our transport. They were amazed! We all piled in and set off for Magic Kingdom. We had some drinks on the way and just chilled for the journey.

    We made quite the entrance at Magic Kingdom. Loads of people were watching the limo as we pulled up. They all looked completely stunned to see a tribe of cannibals appear! We definitely had celebrity status and all eyes were on us as we entered the monorail station. The word of the night was ‘Awesome’ as we heard this every time someone commented on our costumes. Mum, dad, Holly and Rowan rode upfront on the monorail while Mel, Craig and I were asked by another Disney guest how long we had been working for Disney, lol!

    Once into the Magic Kingdom we were directed to Tomorrowland for our MNSSHP wristbands. We grabbed some eats and drinks there at the party was not due to start for a while. Everyone started, pointed, grinned and shouted over when they saw us. We were stopped by strangers who wanted to take our photos. I could get used to this, lol! Six cannibals rode Space Mountain. We all had to take of our headbands and shrunken heads to ride safely. Dad was nowhere to be seem when we came out but someone shouted over that they had seen a similarly dressed gentleman to us in a nearby smoking area, lol. Someone else shouted yabba dabba doo – what were they thinking? We were clearly cannibals, lol! We all made a quick trip on Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin.

    Once the party was on the go we went to Toontown to visit Mickey and Minnie’s houses before following the Alice and Mad Hatters Treat part Trail back down to Tomorrowland. We ate the candy as we went! The Villains Mix & Mingle show was great fun. Good to see all the baddies! Next up was the Boo to You parade. This was awesome to use the word of the day. I loved the way some of the CMs scraped shovels along the ground to produce sparks, It look fab but I bet it was hard work doing that for the whole parade. We were left singing the song for the rest of the night it was so darn catchy – Boo to you and you, Happy Halloween!

    No candy in here.

    We hung around for Hallowishes. This was an amazing show. The fireworks were brilliant with all the different colours. The castle is a great backdrop. At some points the fireworks were all around us. Truly fantastic! I cannot fault it at all and words do it no justice.

    We headed for Sleepy Hollow for some drink before joining the rather large queue for the Haunted Mansion. It seemed to pass in no time as we did some costume spotting. We saw lots of pirates and kept telling them that cannibals eat pirates! It was all goo fun! It was great to see so many people dressed up. It certainly makes the night feel more special. The Haunted Mansion seemed even creepier this time and was enjoyed by all.

    Splash Mountain was next for some of us. I enjoyed this even better in the dark. Sadly Big Thunder Mountain was now shut for rehab. We had planned to head back Main Street but got cut off by the second parade of the night. We waited until it was over before heading into Adventureland. I asked if Jack Sparrow was about but told he was gone for the night – some party pirate he is! Wimp, lol!

    Some last minute purchases were made in the shops before we grabbed a taxi back to the hotel with our stash of candy. Some of us (me!) had not done any packing so I set to it and packed up 2 large cases and holdalls and most of the hand baggage before falling into bed! What an amazing finish to our holiday!

    Tomorrow – Homeward bound
