Make Something Monday- Hitchhiking Ghosts

Grim Grinning Ghosts come out to socialize!



Do you love Haunted Mansion as much as I do? I remember being scared of it as a child, then riding it again as an adult I have no idea why I was scared! As an adult I was scared for my children-until they rode it. Then I realized that I was just a big wimp when I was a child. They were fine, I was fine, everyone had a great time. Why was I so scared...

Anyway, I love adding more Halloween decorations every year and this year I added the hitchhiking ghosts. Do you want to make them too? Follow this tutorial and you can have your own happy haunts in your yard!

Take wonderful pictures in the dark!

Considering Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party takes place at night, and there are so many dark rides in Disney World, knowing how to take pictures in the dark would be a good thing, right? Consider also that more pictures are taken with an iPhone than any other camera. It would be really good for a person to know how to use their iPhone to take pictures in the dark.

*Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party Week* Take With You Tuesday- A Costume and Trick or Treat Bag

Play dress up!

If I were going this year, this would be my costume for sure!

This may seem obvious, but bring a costume and Trick or Treat bag if you plan on attending Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party- even for adults! 

First the Trick or Treat bag.
One of the fun parts about this party is trick or treating in the Magic Kingdom. Kids and adults are invited to participate. You will receive a bag when you enter the park, but it's small. If collecting candy is a priority bring a bigger bag so you can take home more loot. This year Disney is boasting giving out more candy than ever {with special treats for guests staying later than 8:30} so make sure you have a way to carry it all!

Now about costumes.
The party is the only time that adults are allowed to dress up in the park. Join in the fun and wear a costume! Have fun with it, get creative! Dress the whole family in a theme if you want!

  • Costumes should not be obstructive, offensive or violent; drag on the ground; contain sharp objects, pointed objects or materials that may accidentally strike another guest; contain any weapons or objects which resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon.
  • Masks will not be permitted.
