Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party

My husband is a Halloween baby. It was about time that we visited Walt Disney World during Halloween to celebrate his birthday, so bright and early at the beginning of May 2007 I got on the phone and ordered our Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party hard tickets for October 31. My next booking was the Liberty Tree Tavern for his birthday dinner...spoooky....with special orders for a birthday cake.... we were all set.
I was able to make my dinner reservation for five o'clock at Liberty Tree Tavern on Halloween Day which would allow us to enjoy our dinner in time for the party which was to begin at seven.
We made it a resort day the day of the party, getting up a little later than usual, enjoying a brunch followed by swimming and relaxation at our resort. I found this to be a good idea, because we were going to be up fairly late that night enjoying the festivities of the party...we had no idea what awaited us.
Dressed in orange T-shirts and black shorts we boarded our resort bus only to find more folks attending the party all decked out in Halloween gear. It was so much fun to see people of all ages dressed for Halloween on the bus on the way to Magic Kingdom.
We arrived at Magic Kingdom at 4:30, were allowed entry because of our dining reservation at Liberty Tree Tavern and along with our  hard tickets for the event, were given wrist-bands and Trick or Treat bags. We still had about fifteen minutes so I figured on checking out the special Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Map for special merchandise stations because I wanted a souvenir from the party.

This is what we saw upon entry into the park.

Decorations....Halloween decorations....everywhere, it was astoundingly beautiful. As usual, no detail left behind and always, consistently immaculate. That fascinates me, the attention to detail and brings me right back to my interest in Miniatures, where one must pay careful attention to detail. Walt Disney loved Miniatures and Disney Imagineerings attention to this type of detailing has to be a result of Walt Disney's vision.
Walking down Main Street U.S.A. you begin to sense the excitement of the party ahead, and I really felt badly for the folks who were on their way out of the park, gently prompted by the Cast Members. That has to be very difficult for both Cast Members and Guests without the hard ticket for the event, but what else can be done?
One must not miss out on Character Photo opportunities for this event, I'll post a few instances.

One of the many aspects of sailing with Disney Cruise Line that you do not have to worry about, is your beverages. You don't need to buy a soda or water package or wear a wrist band. Most beverages aboard Disney Cruise Line are complimentary.

Booking Disney Cruise Line with an Autistic Child In Mind

Planning, organizing, strategizing on a daily basis for an autistic child puts me in a state of constant thinking. You see, I absolutely hate inconveniencing other people be it the driver behind me  to the person standing in line in front of me at the grocery store. Always on the lookout for a a melt-down, a spontaneous, loud, sometimes inappropriate vocalization where folks don't understand and give you 'the look'. I have developed thick skin, but somedays words cut to the quick and it hurts.

Planning a Disney cruise with an autistic child in tow, means a lot of critical planning, for even the most taken for granted moments. You see, my child is a boy, and if I take him out in public, I have to make sure I can accommodate all of his needs, right down to toileting and how long the line in a store might be. So let me begin.

Booking the cruise can be a daunting process and while some folks like the luxury of a travel agent, I prefer doing everything myself. Firstly, no one can…
