After having a great time at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party last year, we knew we'd go again someday. And then, things worked out to make that someday the first party once again this year. This time, several more of our friends decided to come with us. For a while, we debated between returning as the Hat Box Ghost and Tightrope Girl along with several other Haunted Mansion characters, then we thought about being a group of Disney villains, but eventually the theme got loosened all the way to just being a group of Disney characters.
After a night of sleep that was more like a nap, everyone met at our place at 5:00 a.m. and we headed to the airport. We had enough time to check in at All Star Movies, head to downtown Disney for a quick lunch, a very short look around, and then back to the resort to start getting prepared for the night.
After waiting way too long in the hot sun for our bus, it finally arrived and we made it to the Magic Kingdom at last. We weren't three steps away from the bus before a few of us were being asked for pictures.
So let's get right to the costumes, shall we? Our travelling band included...
Me as Gaston.
My wife, Christa, as Alice.
Caroline as Ursula.
Emily as Snow White's old hag.
Krinn as Sally.
Diana as Tiger Lily.
Here we are, shortly after having arrived at the party.
Sally with a festive cast member.
Since Emily was disguised as the old hag, she was hoping to find a pin of the character sometime during the trip. When I found one almost right away on the cast member at the tip board, we felt like it might be a sign we were in for a lot of good fortune.
After a few more pictures at the hub, it was time for a trip though the Haunted Mansion.

Then, since we wanted to get a few more photo ops in Fantasyland while the sun was still out, we headed through that land.
Tiger Lily looks forward to riding Peter Pan's flight... when the line gets shorter.
The old hag wonders why itís called Snow White's Scary Adventures when she's clearly the star of the attraction.
Gaston looks forward to Gaston's Tavern setting up show in Fantasyland, but for now poses in front of Pinocchio's Village Haus.
And keeps on posing, of course.
Alice is ready for a spin in some tea cups.
Wawiting to spin...
And spin she did!
Sally, Ursula, and the Old Hag make a hilarious site in a tea cup.
But Alice is right at home.
Sadly, Belle was not available in her Toontown tent. But this was...
Gaston is not sure how to feel about this merchandise.
There's lots more to coming UP as Carl Fredrickson, Russell joing us (also Quail Man)... TO BE CONTINUED!
