Thanks Beth for hosting this Pumpkin Party.
We love Halloween here at Purple Chocolat Home.
We have been partying this week and wanted
to share it with you.
For those of you who haven't heard - Mickey Mouse hosts
Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party.
Beaulah knows she is going to have to go
in storage in a few days so she wanted to
fly off to Florida
and be part of the big Mickey Halloween Party.
She polished her diamond tooth so she was ready to go.
Now if you haven't ever been to Mickey's Halloween
Party, which I hadn't, this is
one you might want to schedule in next year.
The Magic Kingdom closes at
7:00 and reopens for those who have purchased
tickets to the party. (They actually let you start
coming at 4:00.) Many come dressed in costume. Of
course I did!
Everyone, young and old is given a bag to
go trick or treating with. We focused on the rides while
everyone else was focusing on the trick or treating.
Little did we know that they kept handing out handfuls,
yes I said handfuls, of treats at each station until
midnight so by the time we were sick of rides we
went trick or treating. I haven't been trick or treating
since I was little and let me tell you, it was a lot of fun.
We also spent some time at Universal Studios. Their pumpkin
displays were fantastic! I would love to do my front gate
like this - maybe next year.
How about these trees at Universal?
Wouldn't this be fun, filling your trees with pumpkins that
all light up at night. So many ideas, so little time!
But back to Mickey's Party...
The fireworks show and parade at the Magic Kingdom
features the villains this time of year and all of their villainous music.
It was really exceptional. I wanted to share a little of it
with you. I am just like a little kid when it comes to fireworks
and Disney really knows how to do it up right.
How eery they can make the castle!
I don't know how many times it changed colors all night
I've never been to a party like this, but I sure plan
to attend again. You don't even have to wait for an invitation,
you can invite yourself.
Of course, we had to carve our own pumpkins at home.
Left to right - Mummy, Man in the Moon, Minnie Mouse
and Edward and Bella.
Can you guess which one I did?
