The Season of Halloween – Disney Style!

I have to tell you all, fall is my absolute FAVORITE time of the year! I just love all the colors of the leaves changing, that nip in the air, and HALLOWEEN!!! Especially Halloween!!! Fall has been really different for us the last two years since moving here to Savannah. When Halloween is here, it’s still hot out. The trees don’t really start changing color until November-ish. It’s pretty peculiar to me, but I’ll get used to it eventually…especially because Disney Parks extends the Halloween season by an extra month or so! See, tonight is the first Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, which is undoubtedly my VERY favorite event on the planet!!! This event is not-to-be-missed if you are planning on being at the Walt Disney World between 9/11/2012 and 11/2/2012. There is an extra cost for admission to this very special party and it is worth every penny, in my opinion! Check out the official pricing details along with the Event Guide by clicking here.

I also want to share the brand new party map with you as well so you can possibly print them early and get your planning on [because I know you are all serious planners like me]!!! You’ll notice that there is some very fun NEW entertainment happening this year and check out the early peek of some of the special Party merchandise! Just click on the pictures if you want to view them larger.

The first time I attended this special party, we ran around like crazy trick-or-treating, attending dance parties, and riding tons of rides since the lines were so short. Disney only sells a limited number of party tickets, so the Magic Kingdom isn’t filled to capacity which makes it an extra special treat. Now, my ultimate goal is to hit the party twice in the season so I can be 100% sure that I don’t miss a single thing…because I’m sorta nutty like that when it comes to MNSSHP! You don’t HAVE to do it twice, but I highly reccommend it! I just learned today that there will be more candy this year than EVER BEFORE!!! And if sweets are not your thing, there will be healthy options as well. All you’ll need to do is bring your candy that you’ve collected at the treat locations to City Hall, and they’ll exchange your goodies for candy that fits your dietary needs, such as sugar-free candy, treats without nuts and healthy options too! Pretty awesome, right?

Speaking of planning, I sure do like to surprise my kids, but it’s getting really hard to that the older they get because they have my number now…too many surprises over the years apparently! The great Dream Makers over at Disney Floral & Gifts have made a really special “Spirited” Halloween Surprise with teens in mind that includes a special blacklight flashlight for some “to die for” fun!

The Disney Florist has a whole bunch of absolutely fantastic gift ideas for kids of all ages if you’re inclined to add an extra touch of magic to your fall vacation. I love how thoughtful they are too, for example, the Trick or Treat Pumpkin is collapsable so you can transport it home easily and enjoy for years to come! You’ve just got to LOVE Mickey Ears on a pumpkin! I have seen most of the products offered by Disney Floral & Gifts and they are made of the highest quality and everything is just beautiful. You really have to see it to believe it…check out the article about my special visit to the Disney Events Group by clicking here.

I hope you all have a “Spooktacular” Halloween season and please let me know in the comments below what your favorite part of MNSSHP is if you go!

Happy Halloween Everybody!

Some of you may think that I’m out of control with my Disney tendencies, BUT, it is no secret to anyone who knows me that I have an obsession for the Mouse!
