I headed into Tomorrowland for a few minutes, which was hosting the Monsters dance party. There were some great characters there, including Mike, Sulley and Boo!
At the Main Street Bakery (which features Starbucks products now), there were some special Halloween cupcakes.
For the second parade – which is always lightly attended compared with the first one – we waited near the Town Square Theater.
Here are photos from Mickey’s Boo-to-You Halloween Parade!
The Jack Sparrow float almost made it to the end, but had to be taken out via a tractor. I really liked that the characters kept waving to everyone and didn’t act like they noticed it at all.
This Malificent photo is my favorite from the parade.
These Candy Corn cones are new this year – it was the only thing I noticed new in Mickey’s Boo-to-You Parade. I was concerned last night that I’d get home at 2 a.m. and promptly have dreams of being run over by candy corn (I didn’t!) 🙂
The last Villains Mix & Mingle starts just a few minutes after the parade finishes on Main Street. It was actually pretty busy, so I took a few photos and walked around the park a bit.
Here is our video of the Villains Mix & Mingle:
I took some photos on Main Street, and then headed to Frontierland.
Space Mountain did not have a spider web on it as usual, but I did find this one in Frontierland.
And if the web isn’t enough, there was a giant spider on Big Thunder Mountain – it alternated between the spider and a skull w/crossbones. I don’t remember ever seeing the spider here before.
And if you look for fun projections, you may see these eyes as well.
I had left Jeff to take photos of the Splash Mountain treat trail – but there really wasn’t anything to take, except this Mickey head projected on the sidewalk.
Here are the skull and crossbones:
I used to love to take tripod shots at the Haunted Mansion at night – but Photopass photographers are usually there, so I waited until after midnight and took non-tripod shots from outside the rope.
Once the clock strikes midnight, everything closes down – and guests with (or without) tripods have about an hour to take photos. This is often my favorite time at the Party, being able to break out the tripod when few guests are around. It really feels like trying to beat the clock, though!
The pumpkins on Main Street are the hardest to get, we usually are taking photos of them just before 1 a.m., since they are so very popular.
The Magic Kingdom tends to empty out after the fireworks and second parade. There is no shopping on Main Street once the clock strikes midnight, but the lighting is kept on and it looks gorgeous!
