This was hands down the highlight of the trip. Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is the one occasion that adults are allowed into Disney in costume, or in this case, as full-blown princesses. I dressed up as Aurora (Sleeping Beauty), Jason was Buzz Lightyear, Felicia was Belle and Jeremy was the beast, while Hannah dressed as Tinker-Bell with Hoff as Peter Pan.
When we arrived to the park, it began to downpour so we ran for cover. We couldn’t get wet before photos! The pouring rain turned out to be a blessing as it made the ground reflect all the light and look magical. We paused to take some pictures before heading into the park. Hannah and I walked around looking for villains and tried to meet various characters but it never worked. Instead, we watched the Boo to You parade while the rest of the group rode Space Mountain. We then went around and trick or treated a bit before meeting up with the group for some rides.
We headed straight to the Haunted Mansion which was so cool and very fun. After riding, we headed over to Small World, which had no line (shocker), before getting on Peter Pan which made it seem like we were flying over scenes. It’s definitely one of my favorite rides. After, we went to ride Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, which was not scary at all! What was just as fun as the ride was the fact that there was no line since it was after 11pm.
After the rollercoaster, we were trapped on that side of the park, so Jason (Jethyl), Hannah and I decided to ride Splash Mountain again. There was no line and it was even more fun in costume, until I got soaked! On the big drop, we all decided to pose for the photo. After the flash, we all closed our eyes and screamed! That ride was definitely a high point of the trip.
We ended our night riding Pirates of the Caribbean, another favorite of mine, at midnight. There were actual people on parts of the ride who interacted with us. It was the perfect close to our trip. Not having to wait in any lines for all of my favorite rides was awesome! The only downside to the Halloween Party was having to wait for a bus for half an hour afterwards and not making it back to the room until past 1 in the morning. All in all, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party was a great success!!!
