Not So Scary Mickey

Thursday night I went to Disney with Anita, her sister-n-law Carol, her niece Tracy and her husband Scott, their two children Drew and Max, and 2 of Anita's grandchildren, Garrett and Morgan. We had a great time. We got there about 7 PM and left about 1 am. It actually closed at midnight, but we literally closed the place down.

Here we are just getting there. This is Carol, Anita, Drew, Max and Morgan.
The front of the entrance is all decorated for Halloween.

This little guy was showing us the way. Cute huh?
Downtown Disney

Here are the three cuties again
Even Disney World is in favor of the Gators.
It rained the first couple hours we were there. It wasn't bad though because it was warm. Here they all are with their rain gear on . I just got wet. It felt good and once you were wet it didn't matter.
Some of the fireworks. They were awesome. I couldn't catch them all on film, but they were great.
More fall decorations. The whole park was decorated and looked so cool. It was all geared to a "Not So Scary Mickey". It was so much fun and when the rain started everyone must have taken cover because we were able to walk right up to the rides. We went on splash mountain and you get wet on there anyway so it didn't matter that it was also raining while we rode it. I loved it. I wasn't too sure about the 50 ft drop at the end,but it was so fast you didn't have time to really think about it.

This was one of the scenes in "Small World". They have totally changed it since the last time I was there which was about 9 years ago.
When we were leaving the park I saw something that was very familiar that I had seen someone else take a picture of....a storm drain. I knew the minute I saw it that it was the same thing I had seen a picture of. And I must say, It really did look kinda like a storm drain. Ahem!
Anita's niece Tracy and her husband Scott have the neatest jobs. Tracy worked at Disney for years and still does sometime. She helps train the characters. She works as a puppeteer and has been on Sesame Street and they just came back from Oklahoma doing a program with Joyce Meyers. Scott makes puppets and he has made them for Disney and Sesame Street. How cool is that.?

First of all, those are all such great pictures! Somehow, I've never seen Disney with the fall decorations, and I love them! We were there last year just a few days after Thanksgiving and it was already Christmas decorations.

It looks like you had a great time, and what fun jobs your friends have! Did you drive all the way home that night, or stay over?

Hey! I love your Disney pictures. Kali and I were at Mickey's Not So Scary on Friday - we almost got to meet you there :). We had a great time - I recognize most all of your pictures from things we did. I'm glad you got to go and have a great time!

Nana - I posted some Not So Scary photos on my blog also, and I made a link from there to your page to look at your pictures as well. Hope that's OK, if not, let me know and I'll remove the link :). Alice
