While the Disney/Star Wars enthusiasts count down the days until Season of the Force next month as well as Christmas Time coming around (yes…I’ve already mentioned Christmas on the second of October… :D). But first, Disney during Halloween Time is still pretty awesome in its own right. Today there was a hint of fall in the air, otherwise it kept with the theme of the recent warm weather. The park wasn’t exactly at its busiest throughout the day except rides were having occasional “technical difficulties”.
To start the day off we saw the popularity of Disneyland’s Halloween Party at night.
Immediately upon entry into the park we hurried over to Ghost Galaxy only to run into a temporarily closed sign and cast members.
After leaving Space Mountain, we spotted the Matterhorn with a short line so that definitely called us to jump in line. The ride was bumpy today…and a little more painful than usual. Nonetheless, there is no experience quite like The Matterhorn Bobsleds! 🙂
Once off the bobsleds we found they were cameras and tables set up around/near Big Thunder and Haunted Mansion. In the picture you can see the locations numbered with one actually centered within the line for the Haunted Mansion Holiday. These cameras were for live t.v. coverage for the Mickey’s Halloween Party later on in the evening.
On the way out to DCA we passed Pirates of the Caribbean and Jungle Cruise only to realize they were both closed.
Luckily, Indiana Jones had a shorter wait than usual!
DCA was also light in foot traffic as California Screamin’ was our first stop. As usual Screamin’ had its shorter wait time except in the middle of the day it was still 5-10 minutes.
Well, it’s early October and that means there’s obviously only a few more months in the year. Then it would follow that the Diamond Celebration is winding down with growing anticipation for Season of the Force! Well Disney decided that a celebration this grand lasts two years! Don’t worry about missing the Diamond Celebration, it’ll be here next year too! 😉
