Celebrity Sighting

Flashback Post : Disney Halloween 2006 - 2008...

Incredible Fun!

Disney's HalloweenTime Event is going on now.. With just a few nights left, this is an evening you do not want to miss. Trick-or-Treating is done throughout California Adventure at specified stations. Bags of apples, raisins, and of course candy was handed out by the handfuls. The night is billed as "child friendly" and as usual Disney always hit their mark! Who wouldn't love to dance with those furry guys from Monsters Inc.??? Dancing with characters.... imagine a character breakfast with a twist!!! What a highlight! There also were plenty of photo opportunities with princesses. And with almost no wait for rides like Tower of Terror, older kids and Dads were happy too!




The entire group was on hand for this year's event, Tracey and Jessica with families in tow!



This lucky Mom blogger even got a date with a Vampire!!!

Thank You Mickey and Minnie for the special memories!
