Disneyland Halloween!

On a whim we decided to try and see if we could get in the last Mickey's Halloween Party before it ended. Really, after Brian woke up Monday morning I rolled over and said I wanted to go to the party and he enthusiastically said okay!
Tickets were sold out when we arrived, but later in the day we found out we could try and purchase unclaimed tickets in the park after 6 pm. We were third in line and we made it! I'm SO glad we did. We brought our costumes and everything!

 Brian was pretty excited to meet Phineas and Ferb. He really wanted a pic with Agent P but these guys were good. Phineas really liked my hair and Ferb is doing a Buzz light year pose. Brad didn't get it and was pretty mesmerized by the two characters.

 Brad was happy to meet Jessie! Jessie seemed less than thrilled about my costume this year..

 We went to a dance party with Buzz! The Green Army Men and Buzz girls were having a dance party when evil Emperor Zurg stole all the power cells for our party. Luckily Buzz Lightyear! came to save us! Then he stayed and started dancing with everyone! Brian said he had good moves and did the running man along with a few other break dance moves!

This is the boys trick or treating. Here they have "Trick or Treat Trails" where there are a few stations in a row and you follow a little trail to get to all of them. This was by far Brad's fave part of the night. He wanted to "ticrtr" all night long.

We also saw the fireworks show (which had a special flying guest!) and we watched the mini parade or Cavalcade as they called it. I would say overall the parade was way better in Disneyworld, but the rest of everything else was pretty equally fun in Disneyland. The fireworks show was WAY better in Disneyland.

We had two tuckered kids by the end of the night. Lucky me, Luke woke up at his normal 7:30 am time. The rest of the family slept in the next day. We had a great time.

Side note- apparently if you go trick or treating at disney you must be Buzz. No other costume will do. I have a feeling we will be wearing these costumes again next year.
