Boo to You - Happy Halloween!

    Newer Older

    The following is an except from my forthcoming TouringPlans Blog Post; it's a review of Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, of sorts:

    "Since Sarah and I are big character photo geeks, we really ate up Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. We were able to develop an excellent strategy for seeing the characters prior to our trip, and we interacted with nearly all of them. The characters out during the party, for the most part, were either rare (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs) or festively decked-out. It was very cool seeing them like this, and the experiences made me wish Disney would have more themed versions of the popular characters out on a regular basis (e.g. Chip and Dale dressed in astronaut garb in Tomorrowland). In addition to the characters, we caught both Boo to You parades; this parade is easily one of my favorite Disney parades. It’s probably second to the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party Parade, but it’s close. The soundtrack, dancing, and entertainment during the parade were all phenomenal. The fireworks were another highlight, with another exceptional soundtrack. Not quite on par with Holiday Wishes, for me at least, but very strong, nonetheless. We, unfortunately, were unable to catch Villains Mix & Mingle during the party as we bustled around everywhere–and we didn’t even ride a single attraction, get any candy, or stop for photos during the party. To me, this is a testament to the amount of entertainment offered during the party. Although I prefer MVMCP, I think MNSSHP provides better value for the money."

      Sweet shot. I agree that the uwa shot is better. It also has a more face-on angle to the pumpkin which is a stronger draw for my eye.

      Excellent composition and colours, this is an unusual perspective for Halloween MK shots, usually you don't see the decorations as the main focus!

      Seen in my contacts' photos. (?)

      what's really creepy is that the clock has almost the same time in both shots!

      This is why I did not try to take this shot. I knew there would be one of pure perfection posted. (say that three times fast). :-)
