Sunday, October 5, 2014: Magic Kingdom, Crystal Palace, & Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

We landed in Orlando and made our way to Walt Disney World. We went to the Artist Palette to have a soda and snack before heading to Magic Kingdom. Our room wasn’t ready so we checked our bags so we could start having a Magical Time!

As we finished having our snack at the Artist Palate, I got the text that our room was ready. We checked in and then headed to Magic Kingdom where we got our annual passes as it was time to renew as well as our tickets for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.

We then went back and used out fast passes for The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh. It was then time to meet Cinderella and Rapunzel with our next Fastpass. We then did standby for the Haunted Mansion. Usually we Fastpass this so it was nice being able to take pictures of the items in the standby cue.

It was then time for Peter Pan’s Flight with our Fastpass as that is my favorite. We then went and had our pictures taken with Peter Pan at the Adventureland Veranda.

We got our bands for the Halloween Party and then it was dinner time. We had a reservation at the Crystal Palace which is the character meal with Eeyore, Tigger, Piglet and of course Winnie the Pooh. We saw the characters fairly quickly and the food was very good as they had veggie selections and fish.

They started things early that evening. I went a little after 5 PM to the Frontier Trading Post to get in line for the pin sales and they already had them out. I got the complete set in the pumpkin box and the limited edition Magic Band. I also was able to get the Sorcerer’s of the Magic Kingdom collector card for the party at around this same time. They started selling the limited edition party t-shirts in the Emporium at 6 PM. I lined up for Jack and Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas and they came out at 6 PM as well.

The next characters that we met were Aladdin with Abu. We then met Jafar in a separate line. We did some trick or treating before stumbling on the witch from Snow White.

We got pictures with Daisy Duck and Minnie Mouse in their Halloween costumes. We then did some trick or treating and found Donald Duck in his pumpkin outfit with Goofy. Goofy was in his typical outfit from the Silly Sideshow. We then found the Mad Hatter and later Lotso from Toy Story in between trick or treat stops. While we were in line for Mad Hatter, Hallowishes started and it was cool to watch from behind the castle. The ending was cool as fireworks were literally all around us. I was trying to find the Queen of Hearts. I had found her but line was being closed. A cast member gave me a return time and I camped out at that spot until she returned. She was funny offering me her hand to kiss.

After getting my picture with the Queen of Hearts I got my picture taken with the group of Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore, Tigger and Piglet. The group was wearing Halloween costumes. I then waited in a decent size line and got a picture with the Seven Dwarfs.

I then returned to Adventureland and had my picture taken with Jasmine and Genie from Aladdin. I ended my day by having my picture taken with Mickey Mouse in his Halloween costume.
