I still have no idea what I’m doing with my camera, but we’ll set out for Magic Kingdom to snap some nighttime photos during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party anyway. And I’ll include a few that I neglected to include in the Halloween Party overview post.
An eerie Train Station welcomes you to the Halloween Party.
Disney continues work in Storybook Circus. It is a bit odd how just “Circus” and “Souvenirs” are lit up at the moment.
My thinking is that they’re preparing animated lights for “Big Top” and “Storybook,” but we’ll see.
The back of said sign.
It would look a little odd with the other words dark, I think.
Otherwise, I love how Storybook Circus looks at night.
And as I’ve mentioned 40,000.9 times, I wasn’t expecting to because it seems lacking on paper.
Just a second Dumbo.
A re-themed water area.
A re-themed Barnstormer.
But it really is something special and I’m not just saying that because I’m an undercover Disney social media plant.
Tomorrowland approaching the end of the night.
Halloween projections on Star Trader.
A few more while we’re in the vicinity:
This last one was taken at 10:05pm, so you can see how low crowds were during the first Party. Admittedly, I was not looking forward to “covering” the Party. The first Party last year was much busier than one might expect, I think because Disney was hosting some sort of “media” slash travel agent conference, which boosted attendance by several thousand people. The first Party this year was virtually empty, despite a certain “media outlet” claiming the Party was sold out earlier in the afternoon.
This would have looked neat with a flash lighting up the flowers.
Unlike last year, the Mickey decorations were fully lit and flickering.
Mickey Emporium decorations.
A Very Merry.
Not So Scary.
And Train Station.
Do not engage this person.
A spooky Haunted Mansion.
HalloWishes Main Street crowds.
Enchanted Tiki Room.
GET THIS CAROUSEL OUT OF THE WAY IT IS BLOCKING MY VIEW OF THE CASTLE!
Nighttime work on the Mine Coaster.
“Literally” zero people riding the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.
Obviously I’m just a walking, talking embarrassment, but I’m pretty sure the most embarrassing I’ve ever done was riding Mat Tea Party “literally” by myself.
At least a few people are riding now.
That’s that. I have several hundred pictures of the All Star Resorts to post, lunch at San Angel Inn, dinner at T-Rex, a lot of quick service locations to consolidate, and I’m guessing an update to the October operating schedule and initial release of April’s hours on Monday.
