A friend of mine posted a photo on Facebook of some Halloween candles that she saw at a store recently. Most people are outraged by the fact that Halloween products are already showing up in stores, but I don't mind at all because I love Halloween and I'm already looking forward to it. In face, I mind seeing Back-to-School stuff a whole lot more, even though that's happening before Halloween! Of course we Halloween lovers need to prepare early! That's probably why the Disneyland Resort has started to sell tickets for their annual Mickey's Halloween Party. Fall and Halloween will be here before you know it, and you know the advice that everyone gives about a Disney vacation -- plan and prepare :)
I've wanted to attend Mickey's Halloween Party for a long time. I love Halloween and I love Disneyland, so it's the perfect combination. Mickey's Halloween Party has spooky surprises such as:
- Disney characters in costume
- A Halloween-themed parade
- A Halloween-themed fireworks show
- Halloween-themed entertainment
- Healthy trick-or-treat stations
And lots more. This year's party also has a new "Monsters U Dance Party", a family-friendly "frat party" at Tomorrowland Terrace!
Best of all, everyone is encouraged to come in costume. Finally, a Halloween party where everyone is as enthusiastic about dressing up as I am! My fantasy is to dress the whole family up in Alice In Wonderland costumes: Alfie as the Mad Hatter, The Pea as Alice, 3Po and Jammy as Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum.... and yours truly as the Queen of Hearts! It would be absolutely perfect. And if one of the kids or Alfie uses their veto option, we could go as the Incredibles family!
Even you don't go to the party, you should visit the Disneyland Resort in the fall. The whole resort is decked out in Halloween and fall-themed decorations, including Space Mountain and the Haunted Mansion, which have their very own Halloween makeovers. The whole thing is absolutely beautiful. The transformation to Halloween Time starts on September 13 (Friday the 13th!) and goes through October 31.
