Don't tell Steve about the Ghosts

Friday, August 15, 2014

If anyone thought I could travel to CA, and more specifically to Los Angeles, without a stop at Disneyland, oh forget it. NO ONE thought that.
Steve and I continue to tweak our CA road trip plans; How long here? What things to see there? Where to stay? What to eat? Our current itinerary has us in the LA area for about a day and half.

A single day isn't even close to enough time to explore all that Disneyland has to offer with Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, and Downtown Disney.  Sadly, in our case, we aren't even going to have a full day. This made me slightly pouty. HOW was I going to work in something Disneyland related without feeling completely gypped of the full experience???

Enter Disney Magic.

Our trip plan just happens to place us in LA in time for a mid-week Mickey's Halloween Party.  As I read all about the "Halloween Screams" fireworks, Disney Villains strolling about, trick or treat stations to keep us fueled up, and special overlays on the classics Haunted Mansion with Jack Skellington

this was sounding more and more perfect. I lost Steve when I told him we would need to consider costuming and then got him again when I suggested a young Carl & Ellie in honor of our "Adventure is out there!" trip. He can handle some square frames.

We need to lock up our itinerary a bit more, especially for this part of our trip, but it is looking more & more like this will fit in perfectly with our plans. An evening adventure is just what we need to soak in some Disney before we head to sin city.

You can learn more about this often sold out (!) hard ticket event happening between September 12th and October 31st at Disneyland here:

Did you know that Walt Disney World also offers a hard ticket Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party in the fall?? It's equally spectacular and the fireworks are absolutely breathtaking! Event dates begin September 1st and go through October 31st!
