Disneyland in Pictures - Day 4 Part 3

After a bum morning at DCA, I had the Halloween Party at Disneyland to look forward to. Now, I am a seasoned vet to the Halloween Party at Disney World and I had already prepared myself for the fact that Disneyland's pales in comparison. It definitely WASN'T Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, but it had it's charm nonetheless. The decorations were pretty neat at least.

We headed back over to Pirates, for ride #3, and I was able to get better pictures (I think me and my camera were finally coming to an understanding):

But it doesn't matter which side of the country I'm on, I STILL can't get a good pic of Captain Jack:

We had dinner at the French Market in New Orleans Square, and again, it was pretty good for counter service. I had the French Dip:

I also managed to get my Haunted Mansion cup I had been drooling over:
2015-2590
And he had the Po Boy:

I couldn't wait to try the Haunted Mansion cake, and it was pretty good, the top was a solid sheet of white chocolate which I do love:
2015-2589
While the cake itself had a cookies and cream flavor. I don't typically eat Oreos, but I tend to like cookies and cream for some reason. They dusted it with powdered sugar, which gave it a gray appearance on the outside...it was pretty cool to look at and eat!

He just had a multi-chocolate cake (which, for some reason, cost way more than mine):
2015-2592
By the time we got Pooh out of the way, the sun was starting to set and the atmosphere got spooky:

We rode the Matterhorn next, one that I was really excited to ride since we don't have a Disney World counterpart, and I have never hurt so much in my life! I swear I almost busted a kidney on that stupid thing! I vowed never to go near it again, although I did get close enough to the popcorn cart to catch the Yeti in action:

By that point, it was full-on dark:
2015-2634
2015-2639
2015-2642
2015-2645
And parade time, so we snagged our place for Paint The Night:

2015-2701
2015-2734
2015-2743
2015-2752
2015-2760
Overall, it was an amazing parade, but I really missed Boo to You...I much prefer a Halloween parade during a Halloween Party. But then it was time for the Halloween Fireworks, and I do think I preferred them to Hallowishes. I literally have several hundred of these, so I'm only going to post one and I'm not sure if it's the best or not, I just picked one:

I wasn't ready for the night to end, so we wandered around a bit more:
2015-3493
2015-3510
2015-3504
2015-3513
And said a goodbye to the Halloween Party:
2015-3516
We wandered around Downtown for a bit, and I bought my very first Disney Candy Apple:
2015-3524
But someone was getting grumpy (not me) and it was time to call it a night.

You really outdid yourself with pictures! LOVE the ones with the lights and the parade.

Great pics! You should have ridden Matterhorn before the refurb lol back then it was bumpier and you had to sit in someone's lap/have someone in yours. I think it'd be fine if they added more oomph to the cushion. I agree with missing the boo to you parade but I'm wondering if they do a Halloween parade next year after the 60th stuff
