After the meet 'n greet we headed back to the lodge to change into our Halloween shirts. And we hopped on the boat from the lodge to MK. We arrived right around 6:30. The cast members were out and starting to direct people without the purple wrist bands out the gates.
We headed left and went to Adventureland. Our first stop was Aloha Isle for some Dole Whip! I had the Dole Whip Float and Jen had just a cup of Dole Whip. For some reason they wouldn’t let us use a snack from the dining plan. Oh well. It was so yummmmmmmy!
We then headed down the street and we saw Captain Hook and Smee. We stopped and got a picture with them. (Does anyone know if there is a way to copy pictures from photopass without buying the cd?)
And then we were off to Pirates of the Caribbean. Jen was amazed at the details and loved that we walked right onto the ride.
We then headed towards Frontierland after stopping for some trick-or-treating.
Once in Frontierland we went on Splash Mountain. And walked right on and had the log to ourselves. Jen was so afraid she was going to get soaked. I told her that she would be fine and barely get wet. She didn’t believe me. And we came out completely dry.
Then we went to BTMRR. We walked right on. Loved the ride got off and went through the line a 2nd time walking right on again. We were going to go a 3rd time but decided we would go do some other stuff and come back later.
We then did some shopping in Frontierland and bought some pins. One being a limited edition for that nights MNSSHP.
we started to head for HM but the parade was starting. (i did record most of the parade with my camera. When i have a chance i will try to upload to YouTube and i will place the link here for you all). We went up towards the castle and watched the parade from near the partners statue. It was a really great parade. I am glad that we caught it.
After the parade we went to the HM and walked right into the “elevator” room. Great ride! I really enjoyed seeing the cast members with make up on their faces to make it look like they were dead.
After HM we did some shopping at the Christmas store and headed back to the castle area to get a seat for HalloWishes! We got a great seat on the curb. We sat for about 20 minutes waiting for the fireworks. I loved the fireworks! Normally when i go the only fireworks show we see if Fantasmic but if i ever go to another MNSSHP i will definitely watch the fireworks again.
Does anyone know if the HalloWishes soundtrack is available for purchase? I looked but didn’t find it anywhere.
After HalloWishes we headed to Tomorrowland and we went on Space Mountain, Buzz Lightyear, and Tomorrowland Transit Authority. For some reason Monster’s Inc was closed. I really wanted to go in there.
And then we headed to Fantasyland and did Peter Pan, It’s A Small World, Mickey’s Philharmagic, Snow White and Pooh. Again everthing was a walk on with the exception of Philharmagic because the previous show had just started.
By this point it was almost 1130pm so we decided to try and beat the mad rush. We did a little more shopping on the way out and bought some huge YUMMY mickey mouse shaped rice crispy treats. We took the boat back to the resort and arrived around 1230am. Took showers and went to bed around 2am.
It was a very long day. But we had such a great time. I told Jen that the crowds we experienced are not typical Disney and to not get used to it.
I called Greg sometime that evening and told him we were only taking trips when there was some sort of hard ticket event going on. It was so worth the money.
I recommend everyone to try and get to MNSSHP if they can.
Coming up tomorrow… Our full day at Epcot. A dream… and yummy food at Les Chef de France!
