Memories of Halloween Honeymoon!

My wife and I shared our honeymoon at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and after spending about a week there, we had wayyyy too many pictures (about 400) but not all of them were Halloween themed, so we thought we'd share a few of the more seasonally themed ones here at HalloweenOverkill for your viewing pleasure!  The Magic Kingdom was decked out for the holiday and looked beautiful.  How the Halloween celebration works at the Magic Kingdom is anyone who has access to the parks on designated days can pay an extra fee to stay after hours in the park to enjoy the festivities (otherwise known as Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party)  included free face painting, after hours rides, trick or treating throughout the park, live shows and parades, and a special fireworks show.  It took cast members about a half hour to transform the park from autumn themed to a total Disney Halloween Kingdom.  I mean every building in the park was lit up with halloween lights and they modified all the street lights to look like Mickey ghosts, and then they.... well just look at the pics you'll get the idea.

I like how this one turned out so blurry, ads an eerie feel to the picture
