For years, the Magic Kingdom has lay far from the reach of darkness. Its citizens have lived cheerfully unaware of the forces that lurked outside its gates, and its rulers have made no attempt to remind their subjects of the neverending struggle between Light and Dark that has occupied the Keymaster Sora since 2002. But they can hide it no longer. For the barrier is about to break, and the shadows will finally have their chance to invade.
Please excuse the corny intro.
Well it started out as a desire to get an awesome photo of a group of ten-or-so people dressed in black with those fleece Heartless hats pretending to storm Sleeping Beauty Castle. But then I figured, hey, this could be a cool opportunity for a Kingdom Hearts fan gathering at Disneyland! After all, it would be much more theme-appropriate than a Star Wars or Harry Potter gathering anyway.
And so it is, Heartless Invasion day at Disneyland, May 15th. A Kingdom Hearts fan get-together for any of you annual passholders, SoCal residents, or people with way too much free time and money.
Will it be big? Who knows. Will it be annual? Most likely not, especially if I'd have to plan the next one. I'm just putting it out there, and inviting anyone who wants to come along.
So if you've got a Heartless Hat, bring it! And be sure to wear black. If you don't have a Heartless Hat, but do have a sewing machine and a free afternoon, make one! If you have extra monies, buy one online! If you don't have any of those things, be creative, or just come wearing black. I'll bring along some extra shadow-heartless hats of my own making, but I won't have too many so don't count on getting one.
I'm thinking of just meeting up on Main Street near the stairs to the Train Station around 2:00pm. We can wait for people to filter in and chat about stuff, and maybe at 2:30pm we can go around and take some group photos of the invasion force at work - at the train station, the castle, or maybe around Tom Sawyer's Island. Whatever seems cool to you guys. Then afterward we could all go on a ride or two together, and then disperse whenever we like. Just a chill get-together.
Can't wait to see how this turns out. See you there, and keep checking this topic for updates!
