Disneyland at Halloween Time


I really should be in bed right now Ocean Dreamers, but I was excited to post some pictures for you from Disneyland! I had such a wonderful time! Even though the lines were long and there were people everywhere, I definitely missed Disneyland. I hadn't been there in a couple of years so I was very excited to go, it was like visiting an old friend!

Disneyland always brings me such joy. I love the imagination aspect of it all. Plus the rides are a blast. I enjoyed seeing the Haunted Mansion and how it transformed into The Nightmare Before Christmas. It was always too crowded for me to see it in years past, so this was my first year seeing it especially decorated from the film. They did such a good job, I hope you enjoy the pictures I captured.

By the way...thank you for all of your sincere responses to my post Haunted. Believe me, it took a lot for me to tell you all of that. I don't like bringing up my haunt but sometimes it is good to reflect and help share with others if they are experiencing the same thing. I hope it helped you a little and thanks always for being so kind is response.

Here are some of my favorite pictures that I captured on Saturday, hope you enjoy a little bit of the Halloween Disney magic.

Look...it is Jack the Pumpkin King, and he is real, yikes!

Cutest ride, ever.

Love all of the shops, just adorable!

I visited Sleeping Beauty's castle, Princess Aurora 3D magic was inside!

Sigh. Hopeless romantics alert!

The dress should be pink!!!!

No, no! It should be blue...

Caution: You are about to enter the Haunted Mansion. Turn back if you DO NOT want to be spooked!

Are you ready for more of Jack the Pumpkin King? 3D pictures inside of the Haunted Mansion...

Yay, it is Jack's love interest Sally! I just adore her. Falling a part limbs and all.

Okay...do you see a difference between this photo and the next?!

I'll give you a hint...did you look at the left corner? Isn't Oogie spookie!!! I didn't realize this until I looked at my pics tonight, I guess it changes in the Haunted Mansion. It truly is haunted! Wahahahaha...

Jack, Jack, the Pumpkin King.

Thanks for looking at all of the pictures, have you ever been to Disneyland Ocean Dreamers?

I better get to bed, tomorrow I am dressing up as a pink pirate for my Halloween work party! More pictures to come!

XOXO,

  7. These pictures are great! I haven't been to Disneyland, but have been to Disney World a zillion times. I wonder how different the two are. I'm sure there are a lot of similarities, but there's got to be some differences too. These are awesome!

  8. Cute! I'm so jealous you have the nightmare before xmas at disneyland. we don't have it down here. i saw it one year when my family took a xmas trip to disneyland instead of disney world. it was really cute! i really want to go back and see sleeping beauty's castle because it's my favorit disney movie and my favorite disney princess (with belle and ariel at really close second). glad you had such a fun time! i love how they decorate the parks for halloween. they're going to be switching to xmas before we even know it!

  33. I went during Christmas and it was amazing. I wanna go during Halloween but someone said they do a Fright Fest type thing and I ended up too scared, I'm starting to think that isnt true lol.

    The Sleeping Beauty walk through scared the crap out of me! I have a video I took of walking through it and the whole time I'm like... crying lol! I get scared easily!

  51. WOW!!!!! You look great, and looks like you had too much fun lady!! :D

    I've always wanted to go to Disney World or Land.. when it is decorated for Halloween just for the fun of it. And I've never been. BOO! Maybe next year.

    And yes, I've been to Disney World a LOT and once to Disneyland. I didn't love it because it is just SMALLER, but just as good.

    Kisses
