Tonight was our very first time doing Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party inside of Magic Kingdom. We dressed Carson up as Buzz Lightyear and Courtney as Tinkerbell. We got Carson a pair of pajamas instead of a traditional costume, as the texture would not go over well. I am so glad we went this route, as tonight was muggy and I think he would have been miserable in a polyester costume. We ended up finding their costumes at the Disney Store in the Florida mall for great prices! Carson’s was $16 and Courtney’s Tinkerbell costume was $35. Patrick and I were planning on dressing up, but when we left to go get our costumes and head over to Magic Kingdom, it was pouring rain, so we decided to just skip the costumes and head to the park. We figured we would go ahead and get new “ears” and where those tonight instead. Which we did, and even Carson picked out a hat he had to have! Pat got the Donald Duck ears, Carson got the Cars Hat, and I got the Ears headband.
So Upon entering Magic Kingdom this evening, they immediately put a wrist band on you, and you get these little bags to collect candy in. Thanks to all our wonderful fans on Facebook for giving us a tip. Bring a larger bag to empty the little bags into. These little bags fill up FAST, and don’t hold a lot and they give you A LOT of candy at each stop. Also upon entering is the MNSSHP map and times guide, this is important to have as it tells you where to trick-o-treat, and what times the parade, shows and fireworks are.
Shortly after getting into the park, bot Carson and Courtney passed out! So we managed to get a great seat for the parade, since we didn’t have to worry about keeping two babies entertained for 45 minutes of sitting! The parade was great! Carson woke up during it and was able to watch most if it and from what I could tell he enjoyed it as well.
I will say this, it was PACKED, we found out that there were 23,000 tickets sold for tonight’s party. And at one point I swear they were all in Fantasyland! You couldn’t get through with a stroller, it was that packed! My only other complaint, Cutters. I hate line cutters. We all have to wait, we all paid to be there, and guess what Disney isn’t going to run out of candy. But every candy line we were in tonight, someone cut us. We didn’t do all the candy stations. I would say we only did about half at most. But we did get a TON of candy!
Now on to the good part – Pictures and Videos – (videos will be added tomorrow, too late tonight)
We got lucky and had an entire Monorail car to ourselves! That never happens!
Right after we got our new “Ears” we went next door to the candy shop and watched the lady making Cotton Candy, and she ended up giving Carson some free cotton candy, that is his favorite! What a really NICE thing!!!
It feels like there should be a story for this picture, but there isn’t other than I love the Cast Members Costumes for MNSSHP.
So a bunch of them were near and we took a picture.

Then they passed out:
Saw the neatest costume ever tonight! Belle and Beast in one!
Candy Time, they literally grab handfuls at a time and put it in your bag!
We went and visited with Tinkerbell and Periwinkle (5 Minute Wait!)
