    Tircks and Treats at Disneyland 10-29-12

    Halloween has come and gone. For some, it was a fun night watching scary movies, maybe having a few drinks. For myself and a few friends, it was a two month long spook-tacular celebration. Movies, haunts, treats, and decorations for almost 60 days. All of this culminated in a fantastic display of trick-or-treating on Monday, October 29th, at Disneyland's Halloween Party.


    Meg and I dressed up this year as Finn the Human and Marceline the Vampire Queen from the animated series "Adventure Time".




    Before the Halloween Happenings began, we met up with our friend Austin, who turned out to have the best Ghostbuster costume I've ever seen.



    We went to the resort a few hours early to jump in line for the newly opened Earl of Sandwich restaurant. Rumors had been circulating on it opening a few days earlier than the official date and they turned out to be true!



    "Look, Jake! They have hot sandwiches!"



    Am I the only one who finds it hilarious to see a Ghostbuster buying food?



    And here it is. Finally.



    Marceline quite enjoyed sucking the color red out of her sandwich.


    With the line and dining, altogether it took about an hour. So when we left Earl, it was time to Trick-or-Treat!




    The castle was already being transformed into "Christmas Time", but we figured it was actually the Ice King who made the snow fall.



    We met up with Nick and Natalie, who dressed as The Phantom of the Opera and Christine Daaé. We all rushed over to ride Star Tours, not knowing that this would be the last day that Lucasfilm was not owned by Disney.



    Like I said, his costume is amazing. It even lights up!



    There was this guy's costume. It was really great. But I think Austin wins because I know him.



    It's Disney, now!



    Marceline is ready to brave The Matterhorn!



    The Phantom knows how to fight off the abdominal snowman... by singing!



    The Ghostbuster's proton pack malfunctioned didn't get to ride with us. He got it working again shortly after.



    Bustin' Makes Him Feel Good.



    A full moon over Disneyland. This was a good night to come.



    Spooky line for spooky treats.



    So much fog!



    An orange pumpkin singing the blues.



    For the event, the park has all sorts of different lighting and fog effects. It's almost a different park!



    "Zuul!"



    Riding on a runaway ghost train!




    The Dapper Dans sang a capella versions of some favorite spooky tunes. It was quite fantastic.



    Marceline really enjoyed the music. She played along on her axe.



    Christine wanted to sing along but the Phantom kidnapped her instead.


    Around this time, Diandra showed up and showed off her costume.

    Katniss Everdeen was ready for some candy!



    In the candy line! You can see The Jetsons in the back, trying to get a picture of Phantom and Christine.



    So much awesome fog!



    Our Ghostbuster was ready for all the ghosts on The Haunted Mansion.



    Ray Bradbury's Halloween Tree is quite the sight to see. I want one of these in my own house.






    Around this time, there was a gathering of people out in front of the castle.

    "Hmm... there must be a reason for this..."

    Of course! FIREWORKS!


    We met up with our friends George and Elly, who dressed as Jack Skellington and Sally, and we watched the fireworks. But not before taking an awesome group picture.



    The fireworks show was fantastic. A little cheesy at times, but really great at others. Love this one every year.



    Katniss just learned that Indy would be closed until December.



    The night was winding down and we wanted to hop on another coaster. We decided that a final spin on Space Mountain: Ghost Galaxy would be prudent.







    HISS! Christmas at Halloween! Be GONE!



    A little more trick-or-treating was in order.

    Man, animatronics have gotten REALLY good over the years.



    By now the park was closed down for the night and it was apparent that the Halloween season was at an end.



    We followed the outflow of bodies toward the exit and headed home.



    And so ends another wonderful Halloween Season.



    Happy Halloween!


    P.S.

    Look at this haul!

    Totally random, but was your Ghostbuster friend at Howl at the Moon last saturday night? I have very blurry memory from that night (buckets of booze!), but a Ghostbuster won the men's costume contest and I swear he looked just like him.

    Hooray! My booze infused memory isn't completely horrible after all! I was Poison Ivy, not the one with Freeze, but the one with the Catwoman who won for best female costume.
