    :)

    Thanks, Meghan! I gave it my best.

    Mine too!! I love the sparks!

    Thanks, again!

    Isn't it a fun one?! I love that Orange Bird made a big comeback!

    Look at me go! I haven’t disappeared yet!


    We just visited Nomad Lounge on our last trip and absolutely loved it!

    I did not know that !

    :rotfl2:

    I really have!

    Wait a minute! A seasoned DISer like you doesn’t do mobile ordering?? :eek:

    I really enjoyed the extra added touches for the Halloween party on pirates

    I thought the same thing. Very decent crowd level.

    Ok, never heard that one

    That was really nice!

    I have yet to get a shot of him that isn’t all blurred to oblivion. You did better than me!

    :laughing::laughing:

    But I can’t !

    We loved watching her! So dang funny

    Your costume was amazeballs by the way!

    I'm sure she loves that! How fun that she has a way to invite interaction and play with the younger set!

    I think the parties that are closer to Halloween are probably more crowded and not as fun. And I agree, the parties rules about no other guests SHOULD be enforced so that those of us who pay extra can enjoy it with fewer people, shorter lines, etc... I can't speak for all the parties, but they were checking bands frequently for mine.

    The earlier you line up, the less time you'll spend there. However, I also saw shorter lines for SOME characters LATE in the party as well. Jafar, Queen of Hearts, Alice were a few whose lines dwindled later.

    But I think you were talking about the live characters? They totally were fun and worth it. They really got into their roles and were super funny. I'm curious what "bad" things you were hearing? EEK! I hadn't heard about any of that. :(

    Thanks, Jenn!! Half the fun is the fog and lights and music!

    ;)

    Already planning it!

    I swear I wasn't about to poop.

    I think my problem was I had no idea what the photo in some cases was even supposed to BE, so didn't know what pose to strike or whatever. I'll try again next year.

    As for PK, it's probably best he stay distracted. ;)

    I was serious contemplating NOT wearing the wig at all, but I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo glad I did.

    That's amazing! And yes I can totally see how that'd be very unnerving!

    Yep, but I can assure, it was really very, very good. I was pleasantly surprised!

    It wasn't going to (not) happen)! I was cutting it close, but made it. And was glad I did. I don't remember the CMs having special FX makeup the year before.

    :rotfl2:

    Gotcha!

    Come back for Tea anytime, Dearie!

    YAY!! Kelly's still here!!

    Isn't it divine?! So comfy and inviting?

    I haven't given it a go yet. Not sure how it works so have put it off.

    Me too!! I hope they do a bit more with the party in the future too. JC just screams for some overlay or live interaction fun!

    I'd say, at least on my party night, if you wanted to focus on rides alone, you could get loads done with minimal waits. Characters, depending on who ebbed and flowed, and there were SCADS for PP photogs out so no lines there either.

    It really was. I would never have just barged in (as some seem to be in the habit of doing :rolleyes2) but I was grateful he offered.

    Blurred to oblivion was my last year's attempt. I'm just going to say again how much I love my new lens for dark situations.

    I've been lucky enough to catch her twice now. The first time she was going on and on to some guest about Alabama's sports teams because of his shirt. :lmao:

    Thanks!!! I think the kids and I have our idea for next year's costume.

    Last bits and pieces of MNSSHP...

    I ran a bit short on space for a few photos that I wanted to include in my last update. So here's a little bonus round just to be thorough.
    While I was getting my Dole Whip Cake of Deliciousness, I noticed the area was lit with black light and it was PERFECT for my costume! What a happy surprise! What 8 year old at heart doesn't love black light effects?! I am not shy one bit in asking others to take my photo, so did. A very kind gentlemen obliged and I ended up with this, one of my very favorites of the night. I adore it!

    [​IMG]

    I also think this might be my favorite of the Magic Shots of the night. So cheesy Taco Bell called and asked for rights...

    [​IMG]

    And a few misc leftovers just for fun...

    Correct, I was. I had heard that they just weren't interacting well, and that it didn't bring anything special to the parties. Also that it didn't add enough "different" to the ride to justify it being advertised as it was with the party.

    I absolutely LOVE this! I am a huge black light fan and this does not disappoint!

    Oh no, I'm confident all that wonderful stuff was there, I just did not get the opportunity to see it. The short version...2 hours and 20 minutes in the line for Moana, the parade and fireworks was the sum total of my party experience. The who, what, when, where and why...WHY!...WWWHHHYYYY!!!!! :sad: will eventually be revealed in my TR.

    Hopefully it was good candy and not those orange circus peanuts. :crazy2:

    :faint: Sorry folks! Party's over!

    Nah, who cares about people who just paid for regular admission?

    Love it!

    :rotfl2::rotfl2:

    That's good to hear! I had heard the parties were getting more and more crowded.

    Which is...good?

    That's actually pretty good for those conditions!

    Hey, she's allowed to take me out once in a while, too, ya know. How come they never think of that??

    Oh, sure, in all of my free time! I guess the lawn just mows itself around here!

    :rotfl: Caught her at the perfect time.

    Wait...what? I want my $20 back!

    :lmao::rotfl2::rotfl:

    It's late at night. At some point, EVERYTHING is funny.

    Perfect spot! Great shots.

    That does sound pretty tasty.

    Well, I don't know about the other nights but for me and this party, it was fun. I hadn't read any real reviews of the addition or anything so it wasn't hyped up nor were my expectations high, or well.... anything. So whatever it was ended up being really fun. :) Plus, I think they have a fair amount of leeway to interact so if guests are game to play along, it'll be much better. But... just a guess! LOL! I really have no idea!

    Quite a happy accident!

    Oh. My. Gawd. My heart is breaking just a little. However, I do know others who've stood in similarly long lines (in the rain) for one shot/interaction, so at least you WILL have a story to tell. :) Not that Trip Reporting is the end all, but, we are all going to be very interested in this one.

    Those are just... gross. Chewy chalk- reminds me of a laxative I took once. This was good stuff- individual sized M and M's, Starbursts, Skittles, Mars, etc.... I just broke them out yesterday and have rationed a piece/bag a day until they are gone.

    I could care less if they're in the shops on Main Street until 7:00, but the restaurants might be a drag if they were filled with non-party folk.

    I chose one earlier in the season AND a mid-week party. I think that does make a difference.

    Yes, that is a "good" idiom.

    Thanks. :)

    Of course, but the photo series happened to be a female version. If it were a male version... er... nm....

    Lawn, schpawn.

    ;)

    Photography: 10% skill; 10% patience; 80% luck.

    Well, looky at you. Your chances were 10 times better than mine!

    Except 30 minute bus waits to go home.

    I would actually go out of my way to get one again if they kept it on the regular menu.

    Yumm! Treats!

    Dang it!

    More treats?

    oooohhhh…. scary boo!

    Nice one!

    :rolleyes1

    And yet... sooooo worth it. At least for me.

    Great!

    I think that's where some people go wrong. You just can't do everything. But if you go in wanting just a few things... then it's fun and a whole lot less stressful.

    ::yes::

    I remember that.

    Great! That makes the night even more fun. :goodvibes

    I stumbled on a similar (maybe the same) review. I was pretty surprised at how poorly everything rated.
    I remember thinking I'd only want to try one or two things. The rest? Nah.

    ::yes:: I remember how much you love those.

    Whoa. Long time. I wouldn't have stood in line that long for them... but would for a Dole whip float.
    So I get that you did.

    Nice shot. They sure look like they're having a good time. :)

    Huh. And yet... then the wait would've been an hour.

    Not bad. Not like some people who wait 2.5 hours... in the rain...

    But who would be stupid enough to do that?

    People watching is great at that event. Nice you had some company.

    Hello!

    Can't be late, ya know.

    Love your costume. :) And... flashing a little bit of leg. What a naughty little Alice you are!

    Heard that too.
    But I'd heard that it wasn't a big deal. Glad that seems to be (at least for you) not the case.

    :laughing:
    No one pointed this out?

    He probably was, poor man.

    :laughing: I'm surprised. So many people just sit quietly and wouldn't do that.

    :lmao:

    Dang! Nice shot! Super low light and moving? Nice.

    That's not bad at all!

    Awesome...

    Only problem is...…..
    I found myself oohing and ahing over so many photos that... I figured I'd just not comment on each one and just give you a blanket "Wow! You got some really good shots!"

    Love how you captured the fog in this one.

    :laughing:

    Hmm... my Mom used to make upside down pineapple cake. I didn't care for it. Don't know if I'd enjoy this.

    [​IMG]

    Hmmm...
    Nope. I'll stick with the float, thanks.
    But glad you enjoyed it. :)

    ::yes:: Tough shot. Very.

    Whoops! Yeah, that's half the battle right there.

    ::yes:: That is nice. :)

    Not bad at all, considering the variables.
    And much better than some I've seen.

    ::yes::

    Yup!
    And until a few years ago, the cemetery keeper and his dog.

    Okay! Okay!!!!

    Sheesh. Can I at least put my socks in the dishwasher?

    Man! Your parade photos are sharp! You got a lot of really good ones!

    I did! Just yesterday! Sheesh!

    You caught the sparks! Nice one!!!!

    I wear that expression on occasion, as well.

    Paparazzi... please.

    :laughing: Poor thing looks dead on her feet.

    Approximately one in a few thousand.

    oops! sorry.

    [​IMG]


    Well, that was abrupt!

    :lmao:

    It's like I'm looking into a mirror.

    I appreciate the extra hair.

    <straining.. straining>

    Geez, just relax and take some Ex-Lax.

    I can't stop! :rotfl:

    :eek: A fate worse than death!

    Man I love these shots!

    I think you look scared. Great shot!

    Next year!
    Wish I could too! (say "next year" I mean. :))

    HM is pretty hard to shoot. Some areas more so than others... and you're always moving, too!

    Nice!

    Awww... I bet that was just heaven.

    Nice! A DISmeet! :)

    Too bad.
    But I've done that. You're so busy yapping that... you just forget.

    Hmmm... not sure. How was the bun?

    Glad you did. You cannot miss that ride during MNSSHP.

    correct. :snooty:

    She's great, isn't she? :goodvibes

    Dang! Excellent shot!

    love this part.

    You caught that?!?!?! :worship:

    Orange Bird!

    Well! Rude!

    But then again, I already knew that from when you re-met your friends at the parade.


    :lmao:

    Like that shot too.
    Liked all the shots!

    Thanks so much for sharing them with us! :)

    Yay!

    ::yes::

    Love that!
    Love the glowing epaulettes, stocking and... your nails!

    I love this!

    "EEEEEeeeee!..."

    Tough one. Nice capture!

    I see what @franandaj mean.
    She's not as pretty as she used to be.

    Still.... I think I'm okay with a redhead pirate.

    Tomorrow it’s back to work. Lots of housework today.

    So.... nope.

    But I did think that on Tuesday.
