Autumn, Disney-style ~ Dana
You all know that we love autumn, and we love Disneyland, so I had this wonderful idea to show you how awesome Disneyland looks this time of year. They have all sorts of great events going on, the biggest of which is Mickey’s Halloween Party, which we attended, of course. And I wanted to get all these lovely pictures of the girls in their costumes, of the giant ghost Mickeys that light up the party after dark, of the cast members who called Mazie, who was dressed as Princess Jasmine, “your highness” all night long. But alas, with two kids up well past their bedtimes, I came home with only a few fuzzy shots.
But I am committed to you, dear readers! And so I ventured back to the park. With the two girls. By myself. And although there were some pictures that I just didn’t get, I hope you enjoy the ones that I did.
The entrance plaza and Main Street are decorated to the hilt with fall-colored bunting, gorgeous leaves, and lots and lots of carved pumpkins.
Frontierland always has a country fall festival mood with a super cute little spot for pictures.
Frontierland is also home to the Dia De Los Muertos celebration, which is new the past couple of years. Mazie loved the face painting!
And of course, the Haunted Mansion is decked out in all of it’s Nightmare Before Christmas splendor. It’s hard to believe that this year is the 13th anniversary of the transformation, which stays from autumn until Christmastime. I would have loved to get more shots of this amazing display, but the neither the kids, nor their mommy, were interested in waiting over an hour for it. But it’s so neat, even from outside of the gates.
The girls were so good for these couple of hours, so I rewarded Mazie with a much-deserved spin on It’s A Small World.
And home again… in matching Halloween jammies. We are SO INTO THIS SEASON!
We hope you are enjoying your autumn, too!
