I thought, “what better place to celebrate Halloween than at The Most Magical place of all…
Disneyland, of course!!”

I don’t usually go to the park at night, but I thought since it was Halloween I might just dare to take a peek. Tis rumored the park is haunted so we shall see what we shall see.

The river boat is always a fun destination, however this evening it cast an other- worldly glow over the water, so…no thank you. I’ll keep walking.

mickeyglow

I rounded the bend to find Mickey looking a wee bit frightened and when I turned to look behind me I understood why.

The old dead tree had sprouted gnarled leaves that grew into scary jack-o-lanters staring back at me.

skelliband

Other then the wind in the old dead tree all was quiet in Frontier Land till I heard the faintest sound of mariachi bands drifting from the ground.

miss-skelli

I tried to get this old woman’s attention, “Excuse me mam, could you tell me where I can get a bite to eat?” She glanced down then looked away and had absolutely nothing to say, as her boney body swayed to the sound of the guitars.

pirate

I was becoming very hungry when I spied this salty old gent strolling by. I tried to get his attention too, but he was busy pointing at an old torn map while mumbling something about buried treasure…hmm.

mansion

I passed by the old planation house with it’s candles all aglow. The place has been vacant until recently when the strangest of characters moved in with a bunch of his even stranger friends.

skelliman

I continued on my way until I happened upon this little guy who looked like he could use a pastry or two or three or even four. Maybe he could point me to a door that would lead to treats galore.

goodies

Yes! He knew, but who would have known, that this little man with no skin only bones would know the way to pleasures unknown…
what else but a giant slice of chocolate cake with a steaming cup of coffee.

Well I had a fun time but saw no ghouls or ghosts…
however, there was this woman trapped in a tower as I scurried on my way.

OK, now it’s your turn to scurry off and visit all the wonderful fun posts at this years party and a BIG HUGE THANK YOU to the Beloved One for hosting such a fun annual event…

YAY VANESSA!!!!!!!

What a magical story! I think I may know why the skellies know where to get the best eats. =)

SPOOKTACULAR HALLOWEEN FUN!
Enchanting Disneyland PICs. It's the most magical place on earth. I can't wait to go Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina Hawaii, it's the place to stay for a vacation that immerses you in local culture through Disney magic.

Please fly by my party when you can...
Hauntingly Yours, Lyndy >^..^<
