After a tiresome midterm week, I decided to reward myself and venture off to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween in Orlando. The Halloween event highlights villains from different Disney movies, trick-or-treating locations, and a spooky but magnificent fireworks spectacular. The event ends with their infamous parade filled with characters and Disney dancers that frolic through Frontierland ending on Main Street.
The wondrous welcome sign letting you know you arrived to the land where dreams come true.
The first sight after passing the gates is the Railroad Office covered in fog with purple lighting.
The invasion of the pumpkins! That smiling pumpkin is twice as big as what the picture shows.
This Mickey pumpkin greets you as you walk onto Main Street.
Hello scarecrow, can I have one of your candy apples?
An amusing sight to see was all the people that dressed up. Fun fact that is only time Disney lets adults or anyone over the age of 14 to dress up, so people went full out. These witches in the picture are actual guests not characters.
Tomorrowland lets you know that Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween is a Party!
Sully! What a lovable guy. The “monstrous scream-o-ween ball” let you dance with Sully, Mike Wazowski and a special Monsters Inc character.
Look at him getting down. He owned that “ball” with his monstrous dance moves
BOO! It’s Boo. She danced with her “kitty”.
Now in the presence of the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland.… She does not look very happy to see us.
ARG! The skull and bones sign can be seen from afar letting you know you’ve stumbled upon new territory.
They added a new area to the ride of Pirates of the Caribbean. The boat ride takes you through a spooky tunnel where there’s a battle between two ships and bombs pummel into the water. Totally worth getting wet.
The Hallowishes fireworks brighten the sky with a burst of red light. The park flickers off the lights and a countdown starts til awed colors lit up the sky.
The darkness of the park and the eerie sounds play throughout the park gave a chilling feeling, but once the sparkles are seen all is well again.
Fireworks are magical. As the light fills the sky, the love for Disney fills hearts.
Uh oh. Haunted Mansion slowly creeping.
Peaceful brother Claude lies within the ground of Haunted Mansion. The stimulated ride takes you through the house with all the speaking spirits and fortune-telling crystal ball. The vintage homes deals with illusions of death and singing concrete heads. The Haunted Mansion was the anticipated ride of the night because the spirits follow you home.
Farewell Disney. Cue the sadness. The night comes to a close as we end with the parade. The boo-to-you parade included characters from Aladdin, Pirates of the Caribbean, the Nightmare before Christmas, and much more. It was truly an amazing night to see the park decorated and embrace the Halloween spirit with many festivities.
