Mickey's Halloween Party 2011

If you’ve ever wanted to witness several thousands of people attempting to collect $49 – $64 worth of free candy, then have I got the party for you!

This past Friday, the fine folks of the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim invited Lee, Aubrey and me to attend Mickey’s Halloween Party at Disneyland for the second year in a row. We had SO much fun last year and this year was even more fun because Aubrey was old enough and brave enough to go on some of the scarier rides!

She wore her Michael Jackson costume (sans homemade sparkly glove & wig – too much hassle on the rides) and we went on tons of rides including the Haunted Mansion Holiday, Mr Toad’s Wild Ride, the teacups, the Matterhorn, Pinocchio, Peter Pan, Dumbo and more and of course, Aubrey had to see the Captain EO movie!

MJ, I mean Aubrey, all ready to Rock The Night Away!

There are only eight more nights to attend Mickey’s Halloween Party and it is a separately ticketed event during the evening/night time hours. You’ll be treated to a special Mickey’s Costume Party Cavalcade parade, photo opps with Disney characters in their Halloween garb, and a really kick-ass Halloween fireworks display. They have also added scary elements to Space Mountain and there are two really fun dance parties with characters which Aubrey really enjoyed.

The best part of all was the Trick-Or-Treat Trails. Throughout the park there are candy stations and when you check in you get a huge bag to collect as much as you want. And the people handing out the treats were very generous too – handfuls at each stop! Oh and there are raisins, carrots and apple slices in addition to the candy so you can eat one of those and then feel justified in downing a pound of peanut butter cups. We now have so much candy at our house…we should be put out of our misery. I’m expecting love letters from our dentist to start arriving any day now.

LOTS of candy, people. Lots.

Check event details, dates and prices here and I would suggest buying tickets in advance. The night we were there it did sell out! Get those costumes on and have a great time!

Who's Bad?

About a month ago, I introduced Aubrey to Michael Jackson and now, she can’t til she get enough. Literally, as soon as we get in the car she needs to hear an MJ song or she gets a little surly.

Bad is one of her favorites and here she is dancing and singing along to the video on YouTube. I hope you’re having a great holiday weekend!

Lead AND Background

Aubrey is going through a BIG Michael Jackson phase right now. Here she is in the car, singing along to Beat It. I love how she sings all of the Beat Its – even the background vocals. She has Man In The Mirror, Bille Jean, Thriller and – her favorite of all – Bad memorized now. This was a couple weeks ago.
