Lady Renata welcomes you to the Haunted Mansion

    Newer Older

    Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party is definitely one of my favorite times to be at the Magic Kingdom. Between the great parade, a fantastic fireworks show and finally the way the Haunted Mansion is transformed on party nights. You have all the cast members wearing face paint, great light on the outside of the Mansion, fog fill the queue and Lady Renata sits outside to talk with the guests. I ended up taking some video of her and when she realized that I was recording she got very excited and decided to tell her entire life story and how she died. I am hoping to get that uploaded soon to either flickr or youtube.

    For this shot she offered to pose and sit still so I could get the photo without any movement :)

    I know many of you are heading down to WDW for the 40th this week and also attending the Halloween Party, can't wait to see all the great shots you come back with!
