    Quick Halloween Time visit - pics - 9/26

    I made a quick visit to see Halloween Time for the first time. I arrived around 3pm and was surprised at how light the crowd was, even though at parking they were handing-out slips that said it would be crowded and had tips for dealing with the crowd. Most of the afternoon was like a typical Saturday except for the increased traffic at Space and HM, but toward evening the crowds started pouring in. I guess everyone just wanted to see the new fireworks and Main Street was totally packed during the fireworks.


    The Space Mountain fastpasses were already out and I didn't feel like standing 1 Hour on that hot upper deck in mid afternoon so off to NOS to pick up a fastpass for HMH.

    Halloween desserts at the French Market, chocolate covered cookies in a plastic coffin and they added JS decorations to the mini cheesecakes:


    They put up some decorations including this one where the condiments were and moved the condiments to carts were there is nowhere to put your tray so you have to juggle your dinner just to get a napkin:


    After the late lunch/early dinner a little walk around looking for Halloween stuff.

    Big Thunder Ranch:




    In the elevated area between Edelweiss Snacks and iasw they have set-up a temporary meet-and-greet for the villains, Cruella and the old-hag version of the Evil Queen were there today. Also, in addition the the Photopass photogs there was a guy vith a video camera, so this may be featured in an upcoming podcast.



    Back to Big thunder Ranch to take a closer look. They had two people doing some very nice pumpkin carving.

    Then it's time for Haunted Mansion Holiday

    Bows on all the Pet Cemetery figures:






    I tried to take some inside pictures, but it was too dark.




    I also tried to video the ride portion, but the cell phone is not a very good camera and an even worse video camera.




    Then off to stand in line for Ghost Galaxy. I didn't bother to get any pictures since there are already much better ones here, except this one:

    Then across to DCA. I was a little disappointed, they went all-out on Sunshine Plaza and not much else. I didn't go everywhere, so sorry if I missed something, but outside of Candy Corn Acres the only thing I saw was a little decoration on the tortilla factory (I'm not sure if ToT was lit up with the purple light before or not).

    I love the UP pumpkins, Jack & Sally figures in the carriage, and Jack & Sally face characters! Do they have the Day of the Dead stuff back this year outside Big Thunder Mountain?

    Wow those pumpkins are amazing! I'm gonna carve my pumpkins this year with Disney designs. Though it will be nothing near the scales of the ones here.

    This made me SO excited for my trip next weekend!
