It's almost HALLOWEEN!

This past week has been crazy but fun! We spent last Saturday at a local farm where the kids could do many fun things: milk a cow, pet the animals (burrow, goats, sheep, turkeys, ducks, pigs, guinea pigs, chickens, rabbits, dogs and cats), ride a wagon, pick pumpkins, jump in corn, go through a hay maze, lasso a cow (made out of hay bales), dress a scarecrow, shoot a slingshot, fish with cane poles, ride horses, jump in a hay pile, go down a hay slide and gather eggs in the hen house. We also ate lunch there! Following the day at the farm, we watched football and my friend and I finished the kids costumes (Pebbles and Bam Bam). Sunday was the Fall Festival and Trunk or Treat at church. I dressed as a Disney World tourist complete with my Mickey shirt, lanyard with pins, princess watch, Mickey earrings, camera and camera bag with WDW on it, a Goofy hat and my backpack with my autograph book, penny album, park maps, WDW poncho, Mickey and Pooh balloons, Conservation button from AK, First Visit button from Disneyland, Anniversary button from WDW and Minnie and Mickey stuffed animals. The beginning of this week has been spent playing catch up around the house since I spent all weekend having fun and not tending to laundry, dishes, and the constant clutter!

All that to say, we're only 4 days from Halloween! One of the things on my Disney Bucket List is to go to Disney World in October for Halloween. There are many unique things to do in Disney World this month:

1. Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party* On certain nights in October you can buy a special ticket to MNSSHP. Guests can dress in their favorite Halloween costumes, mingle with Disney characters dressed in their costumes and trick-or-treat throughout the Magic Kingdom. Included in your ticket to the party is Mickey's "Boo-to-You" Halloween Parade, trick-or-treating at various locations, Dance Parties around the park, a show featuring the Disney Villains, and the Happy HalloWishes fireworks.
2. Trick or Treating in DTD- On October 30 and 31 from 5-9pm kids can trick or treat at Downtown Disney at 20 locations. You can also enjoy a DJ Dance party, magicians, storytellers and more!
3. Special Events at Disney Resorts- Scroll to the bottom of this link to find information on events at Fort Wilderness, Old Key West, Port Orleans, Saratoga Springs, and Wilderness Lodge revolving around Halloween!
4. Epcot's International Food and Wine Festival- You can sample food and wine from more than 2 dozen countries around the World Showcase Lagoon at Epcot. While you are strolling the lagoon, you will be immersed in the cuisine, culture and entertainment of the countries.
*I've heard that if you can't get a ticket to MNSSHP you can go to Fort Wilderness... after the Boo To You Parade, the Headless Horseman has to ride back to the stables to put up his horse for the night! How creepy would it be to see the Headless Horseman riding through Fort Wilderness?!?!?
