Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party 2013 – Part I

Our fall trip to Disney World had the added bonus of falling during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, a special event at Magic Kingdom that features trick-or-treating, a special Halloween parade, costumes for kids and adults alike, rare characters, and much more!

The park was decked out for fall. Pumpkins everywhere!

After spending the day at Animal Kingdom, we entered Magic Kingdom around 6pm. The party started at 7pm, just as we were finishing a quick (crowded) dinner at Pecos Bill’s.

We were pretty stoked to dress up as Jake and the Neverland Pirates characters for the party. Luke was Jake, Scarlett was Izzy, I was Captain Hook and Tom was Mr. Smee. We looked GOOD.

I had high hopes of meeting all sort of awesome, rarely seen characters – The Seven Dwarfs, Tarzan and Jane, Lotso, Jack Skellington. But one time waiting for Jasmine and the Genie and we knew that wasn’t going to happen. It was hot and Luke wanted to go on RIDES, not meet people! So plans changed.

Dad took Luke to the trifecta of Mountains and other “big kid” things, while I took Scarlett to attractions for the littler set. I was sort of bummed for a minute but there was almost no wait for any rides so that was pretty fun. Scarlett was delighted to have a boat all to ourselves in It’s A Small World.

A perfect Pirate Ride

Scarlett and I did catch a glimpse of the Dwarfs on the way to Under the Sea. She was willing to meet them if we could skip the line, but we’re not that important. She didn’t care too much.

After playing around in Fantasyland for a bit, Scarlett and I sat right outside Enchanted Tales with Belle to watch the Happy Hallowishes Fireworks Show.

The kids still aren’t thrilled with the booms made by fireworks. Luckily,  I learned to bring

Noise Reducing Earmuffs.

Scarlett was able to enjoy the show without freaking out (even though some of the villains’ voices in the show made her nervous.) Huge benefit!

Next post, we meet back up with Dad and Luke to watch the Boo to You Parade!
