    Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party

    by Hexepatty Updated Oct 30, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Castle at Magic Kingdom

    Favorite thing: Come dressed as your favorite ghouls or goblins (or whatever else you want to be for Halloween) and trick-or-treat around the park. There will be special Halloween Fantasy in the Sky fireworks and very unique parades starring all of your favorite Disney characters.

    Fondest memory: I went with two friends from Jersey --- just Like Me! We ran to all the candy spots and kicked the little kids out of the line to be sure we got the GOOD stuff first. We Double Backed and got MORE good stuff. It was JUST like when i was a Kid! Ahhh... (Minus the ROCKS! Disney don't give no rocks!)

    Favorite thing: "Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Parade" - Come see your favorite characters dressed up in their holloween costumes! With several floats (Villains Float, Haunted Mansion Float, and Hades), this is a must see.

    Fondest memory: This photo is of a guy who tells ghost stories all night. Real cool lighting and he's real talented!

    And other parades as well!

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: "Mickey's Boo-to-You Halloween Parade" - 3 times nightly children will have the opportunity to join the characters in special costume parades through either Frontierland, Fantasyland or Adventureland!

    Fondest memory: There were pirates there, and lots of kids dressed up as pirates post-Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Pretty fun to walk around. Naturally, I was a WENCH... and I didn't even have to dress up to be one.

    Our Friend Phranie!

    by Hexepatty Updated Oct 30, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Phranie plays Aunty Bellum, a dead chick from the South back in the day. She tells a scarey (well, NOT so scary!) tale of woe! She does an amazing job and her make up and costume is awesome! It was a pleasure seeing you at work, Phranie!

    Sorry, Phranie

    Favorite thing: I hope you weren't expecting to look good! I mean the photos are good... but you are a TAD frightful to look at. Some facts on the Magic Kingdom for ya: It has often been said that the true essence of Disney magic can be experienced simply by stepping foot inside the Magic Kingdom. Opened in 1971, the venerable theme park has withstood more than three decades of changing cultures, a constantly shifting social climate, and an explosion of technology that has left lesser places outdated and obsolete.

    Epcot

    by Hexepatty Updated Oct 30, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    View of France and Morrocco

    Favorite thing: Epcot, the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow, opened in 1982. It was conceived by Walt Disney to "take its cue from the new ideas and new technologies that are now emerging from the creative centers of American industry." This concept is best exemplified by Spaceship Earth, the glistening geosphere that has become Epcot's icon.

    Fondest memory: I took some night photos of EPCOT back in the summer and i'm just getting around to putting them up. This place is VERY nice at night!

    EPCOT at night!

    by Hexepatty Updated Oct 30, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Every evening Epcot presents "IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth". This spectacular presentation is centered around the World Showcase Lagoon where fireworks, lasers and dancing fountains combine in a choreographed display performed to an inspirational musical score.

    Fondest memory: Took this photo too! Very Pretty fireworks and laser show. My sister's does some of the pre-event voice overs: "Ten Minutes until Disney's Epcot: Illuminations"... I love hearing her voice around the park!

    Magic Kingdom one last time!

    by Hexepatty Updated Oct 30, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The Magic Kingdom is divided into five distinct areas (lands), arranged in a spoke-like formation, all meeting at the top of Main Street USA right in front of Cinderella Castle. The five lands consist of Tomorrowland, Fantasyland, Frontierland, Liberty Square and Adventureland. Each land is themed to its appropriate title and maintaining that theme is paramount to the parks operation.

    Fondest memory: That's me... forgot I put this up, but what the heck. This is where the ghost stories are told and I showed a picture earlier of the ghost teller guy!

    Magic Kingdom

    Favorite thing: This Theme park is the heart and soul of the Disney empire, the first Disney outpost in Florida when it opened in 1971.

    Journey through Main Street, Adventureland, Frontierland, Liberty Square, Fantasyland, Mickey's Toontown Fair and Tomorrowland with over 40 attractions and shows, where classic Disney tales and characters come to life.

    This is the most attractive park for the smaller kids.

    Epcot

    Favorite thing: Epcot (Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow) was opened in 1982.

    Here you can discover the wonders of the technology in Future World and explore eleven great nations (Mexico, Norway, China, Germany, Italy, USA, Japan, Morocco, France, United Kingdom and Canada) in World Showcase.

    Fondest memory: IllumiNations: lights, lasers, fireworks and music, every night on the World Showcase Lagoon is an unbelievable spectacular. I just can't get enough of it.

    MGM Studios

    Favorite thing: The MGM studios combines Disney detail with MGM's motion pictures. It's a theme park with a fully functioning movie and television production center.

    Showbiz, movies, the wonders of television and the panache of Broadway, it's all to be found in MGM studios.
