Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

It’s Travel Thursday with some more Epic Travel.

Marshall recently had the opportunity to go to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party with Chris. Here is his take on one of the most popular halloween events in Orlando.

I recently had an opportunity, alongside MovieGuy84, to check out Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. This is not the first time I had been to the Party, but it was the first time I had been there on an invite. Okay, technically as a +1 on an invite. Thank you, MovieGuy. If you want me to sum up the rest of what I’m going to say, you should definitely go, and a lot an entire evening for it up tomidnight. You’ll be tired the next morning, but it’ll be good fun.

Each year, they kick off the night with a show. In previous years, most were disappointed with the production and direction of the shows. I’m pleased to say that Disney has addressed that. This year features the Sanderson Sisters of Hocus Pocus fame, their long-overdue-induction into the society of Disney Villians, and a lot of elbow rubbing with other villainous headliners. The sorcerous sisters have come back from their slumber and are attempting to brew their Hocus Pocus Party Potion. They need several ingredients that are all supplied by various ne’er-do-wells including Dr. Fusilier, Oogy Boogy, and Maleficent. It’s all very campy, and yes, that’s the point. Personally, I felt that Oogy Boogy’s part was a bit weak as far as story line, but this is about fun, not high literature. The Sanderson Sisters were perfectly decked out. They looked exactly like their movie counterparts, and moved and sang just right. Disney really did them justice here, and the show really made the night for me.

After that, the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hallow fame came riding through to kick off the Boo-To-You parade. If you haven’t seen this before, it takes various attractions from around the Magic Kingdom on parade, blending their theme songs with the parade music in an earworm that will please and annoy you for two and a half days after. A fun highlight is the zombie undertaker dancers for the Haunted Mansion. As they dance, they drag their shovels on the ground, throwing up a shower of sparks. So fun. If I’m not mistaken, they’ve added Wreck-It Ralph characters near the end of the parade, close to the Goofy Float. I liked Vanellope running around and saying hi to everyone.

Now, you can’t have a fun Halloween without Trick-Or-Treating, and Disney supplies. Many of the attractions are shut down and become candy zones where you can load up. Interestingly, Pirates of the Carribean was also shut down. Possibly because George doesn’t want to work nights. My recommendation is to wait until during or after the night’s fireworks display to do your candy runs, as the lines will be shorter. We managed to hit all the stations, see the show, parade, and fireworks, and ride three rides all during the event without breaking a sweat. While you’re about, you should check out the Haunted Mansion, as all the staff have revealed their undead selves (via great makeup jobs) in the moonlight, and one of the ghostly ladies will be out for a meet-and-greet. Great photo ops are to be had all over the park, as just about every character is hanging out to meet you. Now, I mentioned the fireworks display. Really, I wasn’t much of a fan of it. Having seen it before, and having so much of it de-synced was a bit of a turn off. I hope they’ll update this in future years.

All in all, this was a great event, and I hope to go again one year. If you have the opportunity, kids or no, you should definitely go. It isn’t a scary Halloween. It’s a fun, exuberant romp through all the festivities you remember from your childhood. And your inner child will thank you.

Frosting Company Sneak Peek #2 – Fall Favorites + Discount Code

Frosting Company is coming out with some pretty awesome and amazing new scents and products for the fall. I am really excited for it! I did want to share a few products they sent me to try out as well as a giveaway they have going on Instagram!

And now for the products:

Frosting Company Sneak Peek #2 _ Zainey Laney

For more information on how they look, please see video above. You can see the first Sneak Peek for more information on other products! These probably will not be available for long, as they are fall scents and there will be new ones for winter.

  • The Autumn Leaf Bath Fizzie smells like fall and is the perfect way to start your season. I love that it smells like cinnamon and is so moisturizing!
  • The Candy Corn Bath Fizzie is sugary sweet. I love how large this one is, so it feels like a good value.
  • The Pumpkin Spice Bath Fizzie smells exactly like a Starbucks drink. Plus it’s a cute little pumpkin! The only thing better than this is the Pumpkin Spice Body Frosting. These last forever and are super hydrating. This is one of my favorite products. Since you can’t get the Pumpkin Spice scent in the Body Pop Frostings, this is a good alternative.
  • The Trick or Treat bag is coming soon (probably in October) and has 5 different fizzies! That is kind of a cool value. I love the pixie sticks.

 

You can get 10% off your order using the code SHOPLANEY. Also you can stack it with a code to get you free shipping on orders $40 or more with the code FREESHIP40. Honestly this is a great time to do some early holiday shopping.

I cannot wait to see what they have for winter! It’s my favorite time of year and I want it to get here now!!!

Until next time Zainey Peeps,
