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:
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:
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):
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:
And parade time, so we snagged our place for Paint The Night:
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:
And said a goodbye to the Halloween Party:
We wandered around Downtown for a bit, and I bought my very first Disney Candy Apple:
But someone was getting grumpy (not me) and it was time to call it a night.
