  • Mickey's Halloween Treat

    Hey all,

    Fixed the problem with the pics. They are all working now.

    Just got back from Mickey's Halloween Treat. I figured this would be a good time to post some pictures of the event. Some of them may not be the best but we tried to get a little of everything while keeping the kids happy.

    We arrived for the event and were greeted by this sign.


    Then we checked out some of the decorations.


    This might be a little better shot. They had bands playing throughout the night. I love the big Mickey ghosts.


    After checking out Sunshine Plaza we headed into the Hollywood Backlot to start begging for candy. They had these windsock things all over the place. They were kind of like the go to decoration.


    Didn't really get any other pics down there that turned out so I am pretty much useless as far as the Hollywood Backlot is concerned. They had some great projections around the park. I really liked the one below.


    They had live scarecrows greeting you as you entered A Bugs Land. They were very friendly and I doubt that they would scare a crow.


    Over at the Bountiful Valley stage Flick and Atta were dancing with anybody and everybody willing to get out on the floor. Can you say conga?


    They had little craft areas set up around the park. This one you made a ghost pencil topper out of a coffee filter and a magic marker. This was the MacGuyver station.


    This was projected on the gate next to the Tortilla Factory. The fact that they had this did very little to distract me from the fact that they were not giving me tortillas. I could see them in there... They were laughing on the inside. I don't have any photographic proof of this because it was too emotionally scarring. So just look at the projection.


    Here is another projection. I saw it as I was entering Paradise Pier and took a picture. I said to myself, "You should really take another picture of this when you get closer." Since I am not in the habbit of talking to myself I disregarded this as orders from a crazy person. So no closer pics.


    Here is a closer pic of the Mickey ghost decorations that were out around the parks. Don't ask me why I liked them so much. I just did. OK.


    This is a bad picture of a palm tree. I am only putting this in here to demonstrate that I don't hold a candle to Darkbeer or many of the other photographers on this site. Especially when it comes to taking pictures from a ride vehicle. This was my worthless attempt at getting a pic of Paradise Pier from Mullholland Madness. Thank god for digital cameras so I don't have to pay 40 cents to see that this picture is crap.


    The last few shots are some pretty bad shots of Mickey and friends saying goodbye to everyone. I belive that this was Disney's was of pulling everybody back to the entrance of the park to get them out when they wanted. I might have had some better shots if I hadn't been buying pins at the time. $25 for a pin that I wasn't going to buy until they told me that there were only 300 of them. I am a total sucker. They saw me a mile away. Back to the point. Here are the not so good shots of Disney subtle attempts to empty the park.







    One final shot. My son asleep in his stroller. He was a pirate along with 47% of everybody else attending. I am posting this because I questions the ingredients in the smarties that Disney was handing out. I lost track at 11 of the number of packages that he ate. I was expecting a sugar buzz that would last all the way back to the hotel and well into the night while I was trying to sleep. I think the smarties may be laced with Ambian. Just a thought.


    Thanks for reading. This is my first time posting any pics. I'm sure it won't be my last. Unless they suck. Then I probably will just hide my head in shame.

        Two questions for someone who has indeed experienced the 2006 version of this event:

        1. Is trick-or-treating limited to kids? I ask, because if so, what is there to do for adults besides walk around and pay up to three times the normal price for a pin?

        2. It just looks miserably packed crowded. Was it? I mean, could you move?

        We'd like to go next year (we're currently kidless), but we just don't know if it's worth an extra $20+ a head to walk around a really crowded DCA and look at scenery. Trick or treating and pretending to be kids could be fun...but only if it -was- fun and everyone was doing it. Otherwise, we'd be the big, weird, creepy people behaving as if they're six.

        And, you know, we get that every day.

          My wife and I trick-or-treated along with our son. There were plenty of groups of just adults running around last night.

          It was not that crowded. Most rides were walk on. Most of the people were concentrated in Hollywood Backlot and A Bugs Land. After that everybody was pretty well spread out. The only actual line we waited in was for Monsters Inc.

              I went last night and at first it was kinda busy but it looked like the rain scared some people away.

                For some reason Google isn't letting my pics display in micechat. It all looked fine while I was composing the thread. Stupid google. Maybe I should try somebody else next time.

                Well, you have to copy the link location then post it in your browser. And no, they don't suck. Haha, keep 'em coming. (=

                You can try photobucket next time. They automatically give you the BBCode under the pictures, and it'll make posting easier.

                          Nifty!

                          We'll have to go, then. Could be fun. (Although my planned costume, as the coroner from CSI, probably wouldn't cut it due to the prerequisite blood...it'd be an inside joke, though, as the actor that plays him is a huge Disneyland geek.)

                            Fixed... My doctor told me not to go posting on message boards until the meds had worn off. I guess I should have listened. ha ha.
