  • Trip Report Mickey's Trick-or-Treat Party 10/15

    Hey! I'm new to MiceChat, and I decided for my first big post to be a Trip Report on me and my girlfriend's trip to DCA for Mickey's Trick-or-Treat Party on Thursday October 15th.
    We went as Wilderness Explorers from our favorite movie, UP.
    We worked a couple weeks on our costumes to make it as similar to Russel's outfit as possible. Wish we could've gotten started a little earlier because we can out of time when it came to the backpacks, but they still ended up looking pretty good.


    We got many odd looks passing through Downtown Disney from the Simba parking lot. A lot of people surprisingly haven't seen UP and didn't know who we were supposed to be. "Boy scouts?"
    Most little kids were quick to recognize us. That was a good feeling

    The wilderness must be explored! CAW CAW! RAWR!
    In case you can't tell, I had her mom hem my shorts shorter for the added effect. Haha


    Governor Ratcliffe was busy talking to me and missed the photo.


    My girlfriend and the Queen of Hearts.




    Woody was on his way out and Jessie was on her way in, but Woody stuck around for me because we were waiting for him after all.


    Jack Sparrow hitting on my girlfriend.





    I miss the "don't smile" memo.


    Hahahaha


    Second time waiting in line for the ugly step-sisters when they got replaced by Cruella. Disappointing, but figured might as well get our picture with her.


    Bowler hat guy! Never seen this character in the parks before. Awesome.


    Found another group of Wilderness Explorers...
    Didn't get the costumes quite right, but still fun to meet other people who had a fellow passion for UP.










    We found Dug!
    He had been sold out in all of the stores at Disneyland and in the World of Disney for the past couple of months. But what a night to find him on!
    Of course we bought him, we already had Alpha (you can sort of see his head popping out of my girlfriend's backpack).

    Overall awesome experience! Highly suggest it to anyone who hasn't gone.
    Only wish they had more villains to take pictures with... (Hades and Maleficent).

    Let me know what you think of our costumes .
    We put a lot of work into them.

    Added:
    For those of you who didn't see us that night here's a video my girlfriend took of me running around a Bugs Land like Russell.
    It'll give you a good idea of just how obnoxious our backpacks were. )
    (You can't hear a lot... but it's mainly about the noise anyway)

          Were you by chance there the same night? I'm looking at your signature and you look exactly like an Alice who was there that night.

                      Ha! I remember you guys.. We saw you in the animation studio.. The noise of your backpacks startled my son but the Hubbz and I loved the costumes. Unfortunately we haven't had the time to see UP yet.. so we didn't catch the reference but they are still amazing costumes.

                                  Great trip report. Little mad right now cause I wanted to see Bowler Hat Guy this year but they didn't bring him out for the day time. Anyways good report and the outfits pretty good as well.

                                    Oh also to let you know why there is no Maleficent out is Disneyland thinks she's to to scary to bring out and they don't want the little kids to get terrorfly of her. I know it's weird that they have her out for Fantasmic but not for meet and greets. I don't really care for her so it dosen't bug me but I know alot of people like her. I read about this about 3 years ago.

                                        Yeah we were talking to an Employee about it who said that the last time Hades and Maleficent made an appearance was Halloween time 3 years ago, but he told us that by going online and requesting that we see more of those characters (if they get enough requests) they might bring them out more.
                                        In fact Hades only made an appearance on Halloween night itself 3 years ago.
