This post has been sitting in my drafts for weeks. I guess I should just finish it up and publish it. It'll probably be the last of the Disney pics for a while. Sorry.
I'm not entirely sure what happened with this trip- well.. that's not true... but I didn't take pictures for a "Where in Disney..." contest. If you remember from my Yellowstone trip, my camera is taking time off for sick leave. I borrowed my mom's camera and it doesn't zoom very well so I couldn't get any good detail photos. I thought about using these following photos for a contest- but it's been too long now- and I didn't bring a prize back with me anyway. Sorry guys. Won't happen again.
I thought that the popcorn turners were really funny. I've never really paid them any mind before- but there is a different one in every land. I don't know if there are more than these, but they are the only ones I saw.
The Yeti in between the Matterhorn and Small World. He's a lot cuter than the ones in the ride.
Sorry for the bad pic on this one- I was in a hurry. We were in New Orleans Square when my sister said, "look, that one's a pickle!" I had a good laugh at that as I took the picture of the Oogey Boogey Popcorn turner. I like to think this is his punishment for kidnapping the Sandy Claws.
They paraded around the carnival a little bit- with the fun tall scarecrows. Disney never does anything half way. This little show was just so awesome- the music, the performers... and there were only like, 10 people in there. *No one* knew about it!
EQ: Oh, hello.
Me: (curtsy) Your Majesty.
EQ: (looking at my birthday pin) I see it's your birthday.
Me: Um... yes (it was the day before my birthday)
EQ: Is it really your birthday?
Me: Um... No?
EQ: Liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiies. I like you.
After the magic show we went into the Villain tent again because we heard it was someone new.
In all my times in the park I have never met/seen (even in a parade) Maleficent! I was soooo excited!
I was so excited to meet her I forgot to show her my Maleficent purse. Oh well.. next time.
Another first for me in the park (and I'm sure most of these are only because it is Halloween time) was Jack Skellington and Sally. Once again, the line was too long and I didn't have the time or patience to wait. So I just snapped a quick pic and we carried on.
Call me an overgrown five year old, but meeting characters in the park is one of my favorite things! I can't wait to see who I meet next time!
