Well the day had arrived and it was getting exciting! We both started preparing our costumes back in July for this event (and future POTC events as well!) Started preping for our 5:30pm Hooks Point reservations by 2:00pm! Lots to apply!
Grandma arrived to babysit the youngone because we thought it would be too much for a 7 month old.....<sigh>! But this leaves me more excited for next year when he will be 1.5 years old! <Admires Frogberto and his tadpole!>
Captain Jack Sparrow and pirate Elizabeth Swann are ready to go! Strike your colors!
"I've got a jar of dirt! I've got a jar of dirt!"
Captain Jack Sparrow mate!
Take your hat off Elizabeth yells to me!
At the Esplanade at 7:15pm sharp!
Hey where are you? You try coordinating the logistical gathering of 14 people including 3 kids!!!!
Welcome to Mickey's Halloween Treat 2006!
Wall projections as we wait for some people!
Everyone's here time to go through!
(We don't recall seeing any DCA photographers waiting to take our pictures!)
So we took our own photos!
Davy Jones you slimy git! I've got something of yours!
World's largest Mickey Halloween antenna toppers! My wife was drooling over these!
Daisy...one of the few characters we saw on our way in!
Great detail in decorations this year! Much better than 2005!
These look familiar!
Scarecrow just hanging around! He asked if he could have a brain so I offered him a heart! He didn't like that!
On a quest for Mickey's Halloween Treat 2006 swag we found pirate swag instead! And a dead bird!
And some dead pirates too! And some booty!
So naturally ole Captain Jack had to strike a pose!
By the way all you wenches out there.....if you are going to MHT 2006 this week DO NOT WEAR high heel pirate boots!! If you do you may end up taking home a DCA sneaker merchandise!
Back outside! More decorations and the band that was at the entrance when we arrived and still going strong when we left!
My wife puts on her new souvineir! She's happy...I am miserable! You try walking around in pirate boots for 8 hours!!!!
<For optimal viewing please lean to the left 90 degrees>
Rumor was characters were in the Hollywood Backlot area!
Ms. Devil loved my black and white pelts hanging from my belt but didn't quite care for them not being "puppies!" Jafar wanted to know what was in the "jar of dirt!"
The real Captain! Sorry for picture...please put on your 3D glasses now!
A familiar sight! Off to the Hollywood ToT! Hang onto your dreads!
Jojo freaked when she saw the heart in the jar of dirt!
Golden Screams was closed by 9:45pm! That sucked! One of my complaints this year!
The typical Halloween digital photos of Paradise Pier!
My encounter with another Captain Jack Sparrow! Strike the pose mates!
(CJS if you are out there on MiceChat or anyone knows you I have pics! I believe you were with a rather overly exposed Ariel?)
We tried to get pics with Snow White and Sleeping Beauty after Snow shouted, "Jack Sparrow...oh Jack Sparrow!?" Alas the their CM bodygaurds said they were going backstage! So we got what we could!
But then as Snow was scurrying off to go backstage I shouted in a Captain Jack voice and a swagger, "Excuse me love might we get a picture with you beautiful siren!?" Snow stopped, turned around and said, "Oh Captain Sparrow I love you!" Eat your heart out Prince Charming!!!!
And as Snow scurried backstage she turned around from the backstage doorway and yelled out, "I love you Captain Jack Sparrow" and blew me a kiss! That was worth the entire night and kudos to Snow White!!!! Yes this really did happen!
Kudos to this Captain Jack who went with the fruit kabob look!
More pics of Paradise Pier area!
Lots of construction going on below Screamin!
Fun with carnival mirrors!
A weary pirate longs for some Captain Morgan rum! But where has all the rum gone?
Flash Photography Please!
It's not Tortuga but it will do!
Elizabeth love get in the picture!
Bored onboard the Sun Wheel! How many pictures can you take and strike different poses?
We forgot we were not on a stationary gondola!
Which means hang onto your jar of dirt! I got it! It's OK!
Again..it's all about me!
I promise! No more Sun Wheel pictures!
If my wife could have...we would be taking one of these home!
Another Captain Jack Sparrow...er....Jacqueline Sparrow...Cannibal Jacqueline Sparrow! (Again if you are out there on MiceChat I got pics)
After a long night all a pirate can say is Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
Oh look! They made an action figure of me! I need one of these! Now where did I put my 20% off coupon for renewing my AP!?
More pics coming soon from Elizabeth Swann's digital camera! Promise there will be less of me! Sorry!
