September Disney World Trip Highlights


I got back from an impromptu trip to Disney World earlier this week.  I'm excited to share some of the fun new things I've discovered.

We attended Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party for the first time in years. We couldn't wait to see the Sanderson Sisters takeover the Villains show, and it was well worth the ticket price.  It didn't hurt that we came home with about 22 pounds of candy from Trick or Treating, either. (Seven pounds of that was Werthers Caramels! And yes, you can go through a Trick or Treat line more than once.)

We had a fun Cast Member experience during the Party as well. While we were sitting near Storybook Treats, a Cast Member brought us a dish of ice cream with candy corn. She said that Maleficent had sent her around to collect autographs from visitors to the party. She asked us to write down what costume we were each wearing, and why, and then sign our names. It was a lot of fun!

It was still fairly hot last week, so I ended up running out of water once or twice.  Luckily, Disney has started selling 1.5 liter bottles of water for $4. That's about three times the size of the 20 oz bottles they sell for $2.50, so it's a good deal.

We tried to stop at my favorite Disney Outlet Store on International Drive, but it still hasn't reopened since they closed for renovations in May. And it looks like it may be smaller when it does reopen, because a Panera Bread is going in where part of the store used to be.

Overall, we had a great time. Halloweentime is definitely one of my favorite times to visit the Disney Parks.
